The Rangers did something that not many teams have done so far this year and that’s beat the New York Yankees. Texas jumped out to a 5-0 lead before eventually winning 6-4. Texas will try to take the series today against the Yankees on 1490 AM and 96.3 FM KPLT. Pregame at 5:30. First pitch at 6:05.

Quarterback Christian Hackenberg, who never entered a game in two seasons with the New York Jets, was traded Tuesday to the Oakland Raiders, ending an odd and disappointing tenure that leaves a wake of questions. The Jets will receive a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick for Hackenberg, who will be remembered as one of the biggest second-round disappointments in recent NFL history. The trade came hours after Hackenberg made critical comments about the coaching staff to reporters.

The Philadelphia Eagles lost a pair of linebackers on Tuesday. One by design and one as a result of an injury. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Eagles are releasing Mychal Kendricks, who has been the subject of trade speculation for multiple offseasons. Kendricks was seen leaving the team’s practice facility Tuesday morning. A short time later, they carted newly signed linebacker Paul Worrilow off the field after colliding with a teammate during the first practice of OTAs. He suffered a torn ACL on the play, according to Schefter.

Aaron Rodgers doesn’t think he’ll be throwing the ball to Dez Bryant anytime soon, saying Tuesday that he doesn’t expect the former Dallas Cowboys receiver to sign with the Green Bay Packers. The quarterback’s comments came a week after former Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said he thinks Bryant will “end up going to the Green Bay Packers,” although the new Monday Night Football analyst admitted he had no inside information on a potential move.

A former Texans cheerleader has filed a class-action lawsuit against the team as well as director of cheerleader programs and coach Altovise Gary. In the lawsuit, the woman alleges that she was not compensated fairly for her time and was subject to harassment from fans and from Gary. Only one cheerleader, who is identified by the initials PGG, is a named plaintiff on the case. The plaintiff worked for the Texans as a cheerleader from April 12, 2017, to April 13, 2018. According to the lawsuit, PGG seeks to “recover compensation for hours worked but not recorded or paid (‘off-the-clock work’), failure to pay minimum wage and failure to pay overtime compensation.”
