Rays’ Mike Brosseau gets sweet revenge on Yankees’ Aroldis Chapman with clutch go-ahead home run

The Rays never led the Yankees in the decisive Game 5 of the ALDS on Friday until the eighth inning when pinch-hitter Mike Brosseau got the best of an Aroldis Chapman fastball — a fastball that happened to be the 10th pitch of the at-bat. Here’s the game-changing color television footage: 

That blast made gave the Rays a 2-1 lead and pushed their chances of winning Game 5 from 56.2 percent to 85.3 percent. That one-run margin would hold up and send the Rays to the ALCS for the second time in franchise history (box score). As for Brosseau’s clutch homer off that triple-digit fastball, it’s not something that happens often: 

There’s also this: 

To state the obvious, coming off the bench to face a pitcher with Chapman’s stuff is no easy task — bonus credit to him for fouling off a pair of fastballs and a pair of sliders

Return home not so sweet for 49ers in loss to Eagles – San Francisco 49ers Blog

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — After a successful 10-day trip to New Jersey and West Virginia, the San Francisco 49ers returned home Sunday night and looked like a team that left its juice on the East Coast.

The Niners struggled from the start in a disappointing 25-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The defeat dropped the Niners to 2-2 on the season and 0-2 at Levi’s Stadium.

Perhaps of more concern is that this is the latest and, perhaps, costliest in a series of sluggish performances for the Niners after they have had an extended stay back East.

Home sweet home for relocated Raiders as Saints bust

Derek Carr threw for three touchdowns as the Las Vegas Raiders opened their new era in Nevada with a 34-24 win over the New Orleans Saints on Monday.

The Raiders, who relocated to the desert gambling haven from Oakland at the end of last season, made it a home debut to remember as they roughed up the Saints, tipped as possible Super Bowl contenders.

Raiders quarterback Carr finished with 282 passing yards with 28 completions from 38 attempts with no interceptions. Saints counterpart Drew Brees had 312 yards for one touchdown and one interception.

It marked the first Raiders game in their new gleaming $1.9-billion Allegiant Stadium, the black, spaceship-like stadium nicknamed “The Death Star” that sits in the heart of Las Vegas.

No fans were on hand to witness the Raiders victory, however. The Raiders, like most NFL teams this season, are not allowing fans into their stadium because

Morgan Stanley Bets on These 3 Stocks; Sees Over 40% Upside

Did the stock market’s epic rally just need a little breather? The last few weeks have seen stocks experience their first meaningful correction since the bull market kicked off in March. Now, the question swirling around the Street is, will the rally pick back up again, or is more downside on the way?According to Morgan Stanley’s chief U.S. equity strategist Mike Wilson, uncertainty regarding the presidential election and stalemate on the next stimulus package could lead to declines in September and October. “On the correction, there’s still downside as markets digest the risk of congressional gridlock on the next fiscal deal. While we think something will ultimately get done, it will likely take another few weeks to get it over the goal line,” he noted.However, Wilson argues the recent volatility in no way signals the end of the
