Contributor: Nolan Howell A Saturday night at Wembley Stadium in London was packed with 90,000 screaming fans that brought an atmosphere that rivaled any England national football team game. Boxing was the attraction as countryman Anthony Joshua defended his IBF heavyweight title against Ukrainian stalwart and formerly dominant champion Wladimir Klitschko. Klitschko, 41, aimed to answer questions about his age and reclaim the stronghold he had on the division after one of the worst performances of his career against Tyson Fury 17 months ago.
Heading into the season, much was made about Albert Pujols chasing down immortality as he looks to become just the fourth player in history with 3000 hits and 600 home runs. But, quietly, the Los Angeles Angels slugger set a record Friday night. With a three-run home run in the eighth, the Dominican-born Pujols passed Rafael Palmeiro for the most RBI (1838) in Major League history by a player born outside the United States

Game 6 Vidcast: Spurs Eliminate Grizzlies
There’s no clear-cut pick as far as who the best quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft is. It really depends on scheme fit, and also what each team’s scouting department sees in that player. Opinions can change quickly, and if we remember, Deshaun Watson was deemed the best overall prospect by far after Clemson defeated Alabama in the national championship game.

Highlights: The San Antonio Spurs knew they needed to get Kawhi Leonard help from their bench if they wanted any chance to beat the Memphis Grizzlies and take the series lead. That help came in the form of Manu Ginobili and Patty Mills. The duo combined for 30 points as the Spurs earned a 116-103 win over the Grizzlies in Game 5 of their best-of-seven series at the AT&T Center on Tuesday night.
