MLB – Seattle Mariners land All-Star Game earlier than expected
The Seattle Mariners were formally revealed as hosts of the 2023 Major League Baseball All-Star Game after ramping up a bid initially targeting 2024 or later. The announcement was made inside the Space Needle with Hall of Famers Ken Griffey Jr. and Edgar Martinez looking on. Seattle first hosted the game in 1979. Twenty-two years later it was back in 2001. And now, 22 years later, it'll be back again in 2023. The Mariners quickly kicked the bid process into gear when MLB asked earlier this year if 2023 was a possibility. The 2022 game will be at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

Tigers 4, Brewers 1 – Garneau, Tigers complete 2-game sweep of contending Brewers
Dustin Garneau homered and drove in two runs, rookie Matt Manning combined with the bullpen on a three-hitter and the Detroit Tigers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-1 to complete a two-game sweep. Milwaukee’s magic number to clinch the NL Central remained at five after they dropped a pair to the Tigers following a five-game winning streak. Garneau knocked in the go-ahead run in the fifth with a sacrifice fly. He lofted his fourth homer with two out in the seventh. Derek Hill, who drove in the lone run in Detroit’s 1-0, 11-inning victory over Milwaukee on Tuesday, supplied an RBI triple. Miguel Cabrera added a run-scoring double.
Phillies 6, Cubs 5 – Phillies win wild one on passed ball in 9th; top Cubs 6-5
Andrew Knapp scored on a passed ball in the ninth inning to bolster the Philadelphia Phillies’ tenuous playoff push with a 6-5 win over the Chicago Cubs. The Phillies bullpen blew it in the late innings. Robinson Chirinos hit a two-run homer off Jose Alvarado that tied it 4-all in the eighth. Matt Duffy hit a solo shot off Ian Kennedy in the ninth and tied it at 5. J.T. Realmuto led off the eighth inning with his 15th homer of the season in a topsy-turvy final two innings for a club clinging to playoff aspirations.
Angels 3, White Sox 2 – Marsh homers off Kopech in 8th, Angels top White Sox 3-2
Brandon Marsh hit a tiebreaking solo homer off Michael Kopech in the eighth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 3-2. Marsh drove a 101 mph, full-count fastball from Kopech over the wall in left-center for his second homer. Mike Mayers struck out the side in the seventh for the win. Steve Cishek worked out of a jam in the eighth before Raisel Iglesias finished for his 32nd save. Yoán Moncada homered for AL Central-leading Chicago, which had won three of four.

NFL – Dalton ready to meet former team when Bears host Bengals
Andy Dalton remembers how strange it felt playing against the Bengals. The fact the game was in Cincinnati made it that much more emotional for the veteran quarterback. Dalton goes against the Bengals for the second time in as many years when they visit the Chicago Bears on Sunday. And this one figures to be a little less emotional than when he faced them last season as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears are looking to bounce back from a season-opening, 34-14 loss to the Rams in Los Angeles. Dalton did little to quiet the calls for prized rookie Justin Fields in that one.
NFL – Fisher eager to move beyond Achilles injury, play for Colts
Eric Fisher's life changed almost as soon he felt the pain in his left foot during the AFC championship game. He agonized about his inability to play in the Super Bowl. After eight seasons in Kansas City, he was released in March as a cost-cutting move and spent the next two months uncertain about his future. In May, he finally signed with the Indianapolis Colts. And now, following nearly eight months of rehab, the two-time Pro Bowl left tackle appears to be nearing a return. Fisher was the number one overall pick out of Central Michigan.
