The Eau Claire Express’ two best strikeout pitchers lived up to their billing on Tuesday night. Starter Justin Slaten and reliever Reagan MacDonald combined for 15 strikeouts in a shutout 3-0 win over Waterloo at Carson Park. The dominant pitching performance gave Eau Claire its third win in the last four games. Slaten and MacDonald didn’t face much trouble over the course of the contest on Tuesday. Waterloo only truly threatened to score on two occasions: the sixth and seventh
PITTSBURGH — Trevor Williams has been pitching in the majors for less than two full seasons. Still, he’s come to understand the ups and downs that come with the sport. “Baseball kicks your (behind),” Williams said. “The highs are so high, and the lows are so low. You have to stay even-keeled.” Williams bounced back from recent struggles by pitching one-hit ball over seven innings and two Pittsburgh Pirates relievers closed out a two-hitter in a 1-0 victory
VOLGOGRAD, Russia — Twice wrestled to the ground during the match, England captain Harry Kane finally evaded the Tunisian defense just as time was running out. Kane found an open area of space at the far post and used his head to meet Harry Maguire’s flick-on, scoring the winning goal Monday in a 2-1 victory at the World Cup. It was relief for Kane and Gareth Southgate, who leapt into the air in delight as his World Cup debut as a coach got off to a winning start.
Barry Trotz abruptly stepped down as coach of the Washington Capitals on Monday after failing to agree to terms on a new contract, leaving the newly minted Stanley Cup champions without a coach with the draft coming up later this week and free agency opening next month. Winning the Cup less than two weeks ago triggered a two-year extension for Trotz that would have given him a slight bump in salary to just over $2 million, a person with direct knowledge of the situation told The Associated
Third-year NBA pro Henry Ellenson was back in his high school gym last Tuesday to lead his pair of youth basketball camps. At the same time, Ellenson learned that he has a new coach, only his fourth head coach in eight years of high school, college and pro hoops. The Detroit Pistons named Dwane Casey to replace Stan Van Gundy, who the Pistons let go last month after Detroit missed the playoffs for the second straight season. “Casey had a good year in Toronto. I’m real excited,
Matt Miller recorded his 100th career win as manager of the Eau Claire Cavaliers in their 9-5 nonleague win over the Brill Millers on Monday night at Carson Park.

Adrian Bethel got the win on the mound, going seven innings and giving up six hits, three runs and four walks while striking out three.
