KD Out And Klay Questionable, Manfred Shoots Down Netting Calls, Bochy Reaches 1000 Wins, UCLA Wins Softball World Series

Grace Higgins | June 5th, 2019

Game 3 of the NBA Finals might come down to which team can field five players on the court. Of course, we jest, but it’s looking more like an injury list these days that a series full of superstars. Steve Kerr confirmed on Tuesday that Kevin Durant would once again miss out. While that’s a disappointment, it’s not exactly a surprise since we have not seen him for some time. The news about Klay Thompson, however, is slightly shocking. It was revealed by the coach that he would be questionable for Wednesday night’s game in Oakland against the Toronto Raptors, and it means that the Golden State Warriors might just have to lean entirely- or just about- on Steph Curry and Draymond Green if they want to take a 2-1 lead over the Canadians.

The Big Lead

Over the past week, calls for Major League Baseball to put netting up around just about the whole of the foul lines have been coming in from near and far. Players, pundits, and fans alike have all expressed their opinions. But once again, MLB seems hellbent upon staying in their old, unhelpful ways, with commissioner Rob Manfred claiming that he does not expect clubs to put up new netting during the middle of the season. Manfred didn’t just reject the idea to be fair, no, but it’s disturbing that a business that makes this much money can’t do more to protect innocent bystanders. It will be interesting to see where this goes, because the conversations will not stop anytime soon.


It took a strange ending to their game in New York against the Mets, but the New York Giants got it done on Tuesday night to win 9-3 and give manager Bruce Bochy his 1000th win. The victory put Bochy alongside John McGraw as the only two managers in Giants history to record that number, and it was also pretty cool to see him do it in New York, where the Giants had so much history before moving to the west coast. The trouble started brewing for the Mets when they yanked pitcher Noah Syndergaard- who was irate about the decision. They would then blow a lead immediately after. In the top of the tenth, the Giants rammed the door down with six runs, with three doubles and a single being hit, handing them the win on Bochy’s former stomping grounds.

UCLA are Women’s College Softball World Series champions again. The Bruins got the job done in a sweep over the Oklahoma Sooners on Tuesday night, winning Game 2 5-4 to finish off the three-game series. In doing so, UCLA won its 13th national title in the sport, but they were made to wait nine years to get it. UCLA got splendid performances both offensively and on the mound. Home runs came from Bubba Nickles and Brianna Perez, while their pitching remained great as it had been all year long.
