Matt Loede CLEVELAND – Monday was not a good night for the Indians, as they were blasted by the red-hot Pittsburgh Pirates 7-0 in a rain-shortened game at Progressive Field.Corey Kluber again had issues, allowing a three-run homer to Josh Harrison after the Indians defense gave a couple extra outs to the Pirates in the second inning, and by the time it was over it was a 4-0 game.Things didn’t get much better after a second rain delay, as the Pirates struck three more times to go up 7-0, and a third rain delay after the 6th inning finished the affair.Tonight Shane Bieber is back for the Tribe, making his return to the rotation after a trip back to Columbus so he could keep working during the All-Star break.He’s got his work cut out for him, as the Pirates have won now 10 straight, the most by the black and gold in 14 seasons.Here’s a look at tonight’s game with a quick preview.Time: 7:10 p.m.Starting Pitchers: RHP Joe Musgrove (3-4, 4.08) vs. RHP Shane Bieber (5-1, 3.53)TV: SportsTime OhioOnline: MLB.TVRadio: WTAM 1100am, Indians Radio Network Pages: 1 2 3 4 Related TopicsIndiansJoe MusgrovePiratesShane Bieber Matt Loede has been a part of the Cleveland Sports Media for over 21 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, the National Football League and even high school and college events.

KEYWORDS Kei Nishikori, French Open, Naomi Osaka GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES PARIS – World No. 9 Kei Nishikori advanced to the second round of the French Open on Tuesday, when Japan’s women crashed out one after another.In the women’s draw, Naomi Osaka, Miyu Kato and Nao Hibino all failed to make it out of the first round at Roland Garros. IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 Nishikori came from a set down to defeat big serving Thanasi Kokkinakis of Australia 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 to advance to a second-round battle with France’s Jeremy Chardy. Nishikori’s best result here came two years ago, when he reached the quarterfinals.After struggling with his serve in the first set, Nishikori found his range in the second and blew his opponent out early.Having evened the match at one set apiece, Nishikori trailed 3-0 in the third set before turning things around. He opened his second service game with an ace before Kokkinakis handed over a service break with an unforced error and a double fault.“It was really hard to establish any rhythm. It got better as the match went on, and in the final set, I felt I was playing well,” Nishikori said. “Although even until the end, he was dangerous.“The big thing was coming back from 3-0 down in the third set. I was able to find some momentum and ride that.”Osaka, ranked 55th, lost 6-3, 7-5 to unheralded Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck in her earliest Grand Slam exit. Last year, Osaka reached the third round at the Australian, French and U.S. Open, and the second round this year in Melbourne.In earlier action, 199th-ranked Miyu Kato made a first-round exit from the women’s draw, losing 6-4, 6-0 to American Taylor Townsend, who is ranked 121st in the world.Hibino fell 6-2, 6-2 to French 28th seed Caroline Garcia. Hibino is ranked 83rd. This was Hibino’s sixth Grand Slam and she has yet to make it out of the first round.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — BeeJay Anya’s hook shot rolled around and in with a second to play, lifting North Carolina State to a stunning 66-65 victory over LSU in the NCAA Tournament on Thursday night.The eighth-seeded Wolfpack (21-13) trailed by as much as 16 but rallied to earn a date with top-seeded Villanova in the round of 32 on Saturday.Cat Barber led N.C. State with 17 points and Abdul-Malik Abu added 13, but Anya came up with the biggest play of the game. Senior Trevor Lacey tried to work for a shot with the clock winding down before giving up and feeding Anya in the block. The burly sophomore got off a left-handed hook in the lane and it caromed in.Tim Quarterman scored 17 points, but the Tigers (22-11) collapsed late. Jarell Martin had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Jordan Mickey had 12 points and 14 boards.LSU missed its last 12 field goals and six crucial free throws in the final 4 minutes in another late-game collapse. A week after falling to Auburn in the Southeastern Conference tournament, the Tigers’ breakout season under third-year coach Johnny Jones ended with a thud.Jones admitted he wasn’t sure how his young team would react while making the program’s first NCAA appearance in six years, maybe because the Tigers have been a talented but uneven work in progress all season.LSU alleviated any of Jones’ concerns early. Riding the athleticism of their two sophomore big men and Quarterman’s budding confidence, the Tigers attacked. LSU filled the lane repeatedly, soaring over the Wolfpack at times and racing around them at others.During one sequence in the first half, Martin banked in a running layup, and then followed with a putback dunk in which his right hand appeared to be even with the square on the backboard before he grabbed the ball and slammed it through.Mickey ended the half with a traditional three-point play, and then a dunk as the Tigers took a seemingly commanding 40-26 lead.Like just about everything else this year for the Tigers, comfort was fleeting.N.C. State slowed the pace just enough to force LSU to play half-court offense. The Tigers didn’t take well to the change in tempo. Their flow disappeared and the Wolfpack slowly chipped away.A free throw by Martin put LSU up 61-48 with 9:39 to go before the Tigers fell apart. LSU did not hit a shot the rest of the game and when the Tigers went cold at the free-throw line, N.C. State pounced.A tip-in by Anya pulled the Wolfpack to 65-64 with 46 seconds left. Mickey badly missed two free throws to give N.C. State one more shot.The ball went to Lacey — a former Alabama transfer who has thrived in two seasons with the Wolfpack — but he couldn’t get a shot off before finding Anya. His second basket of the game propelled N.C. State into the next round and gave the tournament its fifth one-point game of the day.TIP INSLSU: The Tigers finished 12 of 22 at the free-throw line and shot just 29 percent (7 of 24) in the second half. … LSU outscored 28 points in the paint alone in the first half, more than N.C. State managed during the opening 20 minutes.N.C. State: The Wolfpack made just 5 of 24 3-pointers. … Lacey had nine points and nine rebounds in 38 minutes. … Former LSU player Ralston Turner had 10 points against his former team.UP NEXTLSU: Season over.N.C. State: plays Villanova on Saturday.

A young Jorge Mendes client, with a lot of potential, who now struggles to find good form and isn’t wanted at a top club anymore? Of course he would be linked to Wolverhampton Wanderers.It’s Renato Sanches we’re talking about, whose possibilities for the future are reported by Portuguese newspaper Diário de Notícias today.Following yesterday’s news launching the idea of a return to Portugal, the outlet claims Sanches has asked to return to Benfica, with the Eagles having already started conversations with Bayern Munich to bring him back.Embed from Getty ImagesBut things don’t look very good for them.Because in case Bayern Munich loan Sanches out again, his new club will have to pay his full salary of €2m per season after tax, besides a transfer fee. There’s also the possibility of a permanent move, which the Germans prefer, and are demanding at least €20m.Benfica don’t want to spend that much for any of these two possibilities, and that’s why things haven’t advanced for now. Meanwhile, Wolves and Inter Milan are named as the clubs who are interested.There’s no details on the chase from the English and the Italian sides. As Jorge Mendes works to facilitate the deal with Benfica, it seems the other sides are still to get a chance to start the talks.Jokes aside, Renato Sanches to Wolverhampton is indeed a move that makes some sense, at least for the Portuguese side of the club. But how would fans take this after the midfielder’s failure at Swansea City?Sanches is still only 20 years of age and at Sport Witness we remember well when he was arguably the most wanted young footballer in Europe. Manchester United were thought to be leading the way, and then Bayern came from nowhere and got a deal done.And it wasn’t just hype. A revelation at Euro 2016, Sanches was named the best youngster at the tournament. We at Sport Witness are absolutely devastated for not seeing it coming. It was right in front of our faces and we missed it.
