A foul ball shook Boston’s Adam Duvall, hitting his foot in the 10th inning Wednesday night against the Houston Astros. After composing himself, he put a better swing on the next pitch and hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning to lift the Red Sox to a 7-5 victory over the Astros.
Shohei Ohtani left the mound in the middle of an at-bat during the second inning Wednesday because of arm fatigue. Ohtani had a 2-2 count on the Cincinnati Reds third baseman Christian Encarnacion-Strand when the Angels’ training staff checked on him following a 94 mph fastball. After a brief discussion, Ohtani headed off the mound, having thrown just 26 pitches in the first game of a doubleheader, which the Angels would go on to lose 9-4.
Last Sunday, Frisco Police arrested Dallas Cowboys defensive end Sam Williams on charges of possessing a controlled substance and unlawfully carrying a weapon. Williams practiced with the Cowboys on Tuesday, the first of three training camp workouts at the team’s headquarters in Frisco following four weeks in California. The Cowboys declined to comment beyond saying they were aware of the arrest. Williams also could face discipline under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
