Fresh look to US PGA Championship leaderboard with Will Zalatoris on top at halfway stage | USPGA

In the city that houses a new museum dedicated to Bob Dylan, the times they are a changin'. How else to explain a major leaderboard as has Will Zalatoris and Mito Pereira – without a main tour victory between them – at the summit? Zalatoris leads Pereira by one at the halfway point of this US PGA Championship.A 64 from Pereira, the 27-year-old Chilean, was already in the books before Zalatoris putted out for a 65. Nine under par plays eight under par. Increasingly benign conditions were remarkable on Friday afternoon but these were still terrific performances. “I actually got away with murder a few times,” said Zalatoris.Rory McIlroy, in a similar position on the draw, could fare no better than 71. McIlroy remains firmly in the picture at Southern Hills – he is five behind Zalatoris...

Finally, after many delays, Starliner has docked with the International Space Station (not without problems)

Boeing's CST-100 Starliner capsule has been paired successfully to the International Space Station (ISS). This achievement is good news for the legendary American aerospace company, which plans to become an alternative to SpaceX and its Dragon 2 capsule for transporting cargo and crew to the ISS. However, before the Starliner can begin regular operations, Boeing must prove to NASA that all systems are working properly. And the truth is that the certification is taking longer than expected, due to a series of technical failures that were presented in the capsule. The setbacks date back to December 2019, when Boeing launched a Starliner into space, but problems with the flight system prevented it from docking with the ISS. The second attempt was in August 2021, but this time it ...

Dodgers will be without reliever Tommy Kahnle for ‘weeks’

PHILADELPHIA — The Dodgers’ bullpen has taken another hit. Blake Treinen could be sidelined until the second half of the season with a shoulder injury. Victor Gonzalez is recovering from a debridement procedure on his elbow. Now Tommy Kahnle is likely out for weeks with an elbow injury. Kahnle underwent an MRI earlier this week after going on the injured list with forearm pain. The official diagnosis after the exam is a bone bruise in his elbow. The injury is believed to be related to Kahnle’s recovery from Tommy John surgery performed in August 2020. Kahnle will be shut down for the next two weeks and then re-evaluated. “It was certainly disappointing to hear that,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “It’s going to be a while – weeks – before he picks up a baseball again. We’re expect...

O’s in no rush to promote Rutschman

BALTIMORE -- The clamor has long been palpable, stemming from when the Orioles selected him first overall in the 2019 MLB Draft. But in recent days and weeks, now that Adley Rutschman appears to be back to full power, it has grown deafening. The Orioles, as they’ve long advertised, are utilizing patience over when to employ their top prospect and face of the rebuild for his long-awaited debut. No amount of struggle at the catching position at the Major League level will alter that course -- something also long advertised. That’s what Orioles manager Brandon Hyde reaffirmed prior to Friday’s series opener against the Rays at Camden Yards. Rutschman, who was out of the lineup for Triple-A Norfolk on Friday after three consecutive days catching (his first time doing so in his rehab from ...

India’s wheat farmers count cost of 40C heat that evokes ‘deserts of Rajasthan’ | India

It was his buffaloes that he was first worried about. As temperatures in the small village of Baras, deep in the Indian state of Punjab, began to soar to unseasonably hot levels in April, farmer Hardeep Singh Uppal noticed that his two buffaloes from him, essential for his family's livelihood, became feverish and unwell.A few weeks later and the buffaloes now seem fine, flicking their tails leisurely as an icy breeze blows down from an air conditioning unit, a luxury that once sat in Uppal's parents house but now has been installed in an otherwise run-down cowshed, running all day at great expense. “The vet told me I need to keep them cool in this heatwave otherwise they will die so this is the only way,” said Uppal.Yet Uppal's problems, which arose from the heatwave that has gripped ...

Chasing the dream together, longtime friends Gorman, Liberatore reach it at same time with Cardinals

PITTSBURGH — Rookie Nolan Gorman was the Cardinals’ second baseman Friday night in his big-league debut against the Pittsburgh Pirates. And Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said it would stay that way, at least in the fact that the hot-hitting infielder wasn’t brought up to be a designated hitter.He will be wearing a fielder’s glove on most days.“Whenever we brought him up, he was going to play second,” said Marmol. “He’s going to play second and Eddie (Tommy Edman) is going to play short.”Gorman, who had 15 homers, a .308 average, and a 1.044 OPS at Memphis, might DH on occasion, just like any other regular. With left fielder Tyler O’Neill on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder impingement, Marmol said he didn’t envision Gorman seeing any time in the outfield ...
