The action continues at the 2023 US Open.  Defending men's champion Carlos Alcaraz rolled into the third round with a straight set victory.  Michael Mmoh eliminated fellow American John Isner, who retired after a 17-year career in professional tennis.  Isner notably won the longest match in professional tennis history after beating Nicolas Mahut in an 11-hour showdown at Wimbledon in 2010.  On the women's side, second-seeded Aryna Sabalenka and third-seeded Jessica Pegula each rolled to straight set victories.  Madison Keys and Peyton Stearns both advanced to the third round, while fellow American Sofia Kenin was ousted from the tournament.  




The Kings are adding a veteran center to their frontcourt.  ESPN reports Sacramento is signing JaVale McGee to a one-year guaranteed minimum contract.  McGee joins the Kings after being waived by the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.  The 35-year-old had averaged 4.4 points and 2.5 rebounds in 42 games last season.  McGee is a three-time NBA champion after winning two titles with the Warriors and most recently one with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2020.  


(Henderson, NV)  --  The Raiders made more changes to their roster.  Las Vegas signed wide receiver Marquez Callaway, linebacker Isaac Darkangelo, offensive guard Vitaliy Gurman and defensive end Janarius Robinson to its practice squad on Thursday.  The Raiders released wide receiver Devin Ross from the practice squad in a corresponding move.  Las Vegas visits the Broncos in its season opener next Sunday afternoon in Denver.

Eastern today.  The U.S. advanced to the second round after big wins over Greece, Jordan and New Zealand in the first round.  Anthony Edwards is coming off a 22-point performance in a 110-62 victory over Jordan on Wednesday.  The U.S. will return to the court on Saturday morning against Jonas Valanciunas [[ YO-nahs vah-lahn-CHEW-nas ]] and Lithuania.  


(Eagan, MN)  --  The Vikings are making T.J. Hockenson the highest-paid tight end in NFL history.  Hockenson has agreed to a four-year contract extension with Minnesota that will pay him up to 68.5-million-dollars.  The deal includes 42.5-million guaranteed and holds an average annual value of 17.125-million, both of which are the highest for a tight end in league history.  Minnesota acquired Hockenson in a trade with the Detroit Lions last November.  In 10 games with the Vikings, he recorded 60 receptions for 519 yards and three touchdowns.


(Thousand Oaks, CA)  --  The Rams might be without Cooper Kupp for their season opener.  Los Angeles head coach Sean McVay said on Thursday that the wide receiver suffered a setback in his return from a hamstring injury.  Kupp was injured on August 1st and is day-to-day after the setback, according to McVay.  The 30-year-old wideout notably missed eight games last season with a high ankle sprain.  Kupp still lead the Rams with 75 catches for 812 yards and six touchdowns.


(Frisco, TX)  --  A Hall of Fame former NFL executive who is credited with changing the way players are scouted has died.  The Dallas Cowboys announced Gil Brandt passed away Thursday morning at the age of 91.  Brandt introduced computers to scouting and player evaluation.  He served as vice president of player personnel for the franchise from 1960 until 1988 and drafted players such as Roger Staubach and Herschel Walker.  Cowboys owner Jerry Jones called Brandt "a true icon and pioneer of our sport."


(Foxboro, MA)  --  The Patriots are adding another quarterback to their 53-man roster.  New England has claimed former Carolina Panthers signal caller Matt Corral off waivers.  Corral was released by the Panthers on Wednesday.  Carolina selected the 24-year-old in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft out of Ole Miss.  The Pats re-signed second-year quarterback Bailey Zappe and undrafted rookie free agent QB Malik Cunningham to the team's practice squad on Wednesday after both were waived Tuesday.  


(Los Angeles, CA)  --  Ronald Acuna Jr. mashed a grand slam in the second inning as the Braves edged the Dodgers 8-7 in Los Angeles.  Acuna cleared the bases with his 30th home run of the year and became the first player in MLB history with 30 homers and 60 stolen bases in a season.  Austin Riley and Michael Harris the Second also went deep for Atlanta, which improved to 88-and-45.  Lance Lynn was charged the loss after giving up seven runs in less than five frames.  Mookie Betts homered twice and Max Muncy also went deep for Los Angeles, which fell to 83-and-50.  


(Cleveland, OH)  --  The Cleveland Guardians are taking advantage of the Los Angeles Angels' fire sale.  The team claimed starter Lucas Giolito off waivers on Thursday.  The former Chicago White Sox pitcher was traded to the Angels along with reliever Reynaldo Lopez at the deadline for top catching prospect Edgar Quero.  Cleveland was also awarded Lopez along with reliever Matt Moore.  Giolito went 1-and-5 in LA with a 6.89 ERA after posting a 3.79 earned run average with Chicago earlier this season.  


(Cincinnati, OH)  --  The Cincinnati Reds have acquired reinforcements for their lineup.  The team was awarded Harrison Bader and Hunter Renfroe on the waiver wire Thursday afternoon.  Bader was waived by the New York Yankees earlier this week after hitting .240 with seven home runs in 80 games this season.  Renfroe was part of five Los Angeles Angels players claimed on waivers and is hitting .242 this season with 19 home runs and 56 RBI.  


(Queens, NY)  --  The action continues at the 2023 US Open.  Defending men's champion Carlos Alcaraz rolled into the third round with a straight set victory.  Michael Mmoh eliminated fellow American John Isner, who retired after a 17-year career in professional tennis.  Isner notably won the longest match in professional tennis history after beating Nicolas Mahut in an 11-hour showdown at Wimbledon in 2010.  On the women's side, second-seeded Aryna Sabalenka and third-seeded Jessica Pegula each rolled to straight set victories.  Madison Keys and Peyton Stearns both advanced to the third round, while fellow American Sofia Kenin was ousted from the tournament.
