Warriors Steal Game 2, Astros Down A’s In 12, Cantlay and Lee6 Have Big Days

Grace Higgins | June 3rd, 2019

Somehow, some way, the Golden State Warriors found a way to win. The two-time defending NBA champions, and winners of three of the last four, figured out a path to victory on Sunday night, defeating the Toronto Raptors 109-104 to even up the series despite missing Klay Thompson, who added to their injury woes. Thompson became the fourth key player for them to have an injury in this postseason, joining Kevin Durant (still out), DeMarcus Cousins, and Andre Iguodala. Thompson left with just under a quarter of the game to go, and his status will be determined via an MRI on Monday to see if he will be able to go back in Oakland in Game 3 on Wednesday night. Even without two of their biggest stars down the stretch, the tried and true Warriors willed their way to the win, capitalizing on a massive 13-point ‘victory’ in the third quarter. Thompson ended up leading the team with 25 points total, while the home team were led by Kawhi Leonard’s 34 in the loss. Steph Curry had a down game, shooting just 3-10 from three-point land and scoring 23 in the process, yet they got the job done. Sometimes that’s all that matters and it now means they can win three of their home games and close out the series on the Raptors.

Bleacher Report

It might have taken the Houston Astros longer than they would have liked, but in the end they got the job done against AL West foes Oakland on Sunday. After 12 innings, we finally got a winner, with 2017 World Series champions coming out on top 6-4. Myles Straw was one of the stars of the evening, turning back the clock a bit to make his mark on the base path against the A’s. He would slap three hits, swipe three bags, and then go on and score the winning run in the top of the 12th when Michael Brantley broke the deadlock. It had taken home runs by the A’s in the seventh and eighth just to knot the game up, so this one will sting a little for them having clawed their way back in. They now sit 10.5 off the pace of Houston in the division.

It was a very big day for Patrick Cantlay at the Memorial Tournament, as he would go on to finally close one out, just as host Jack Nicklaus had implored him to do, with a sterling -8 64 that saw him come back from four shots down to begin the day to win by two. He never once had a putt from more than eight feet for par during Sunday’s round, underlining his impressive play.

USA Today

On the women’s side, Jeongeun Lee6 would taste sweet victory in the US Open, capturing it at 23 years old along with a cool $1 million check. Lee6 is the first women’s professional to make that much money from the USGA in one event, and she was able to grab that cash by shooting a -1 70 to finish at -6 overall for the tournament. To make matters even more awe-inspiring, she accomplished it as an LPGA rookie. Certainly a day she will never, ever forget.
