Indians relief ace Andrew Miller left Wednesday’s 4-1 win over the Chicago Cubs because of left hamstring tightness.
There were few laughs when he got the better of Gregg Popovich’s San Antonio Spurs 4-1 in the first round, with Kerr’s former coach having missed the last three games of the series after the death of his wife, Erin.
Game Danielle Hunter Jersey I didn’t think his voice could get any higher than it did, Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire cracked. He wasn’t feeling very good, but he wasn’t coming out of the game.

Yes, the Patriots once again have their built-in six-game break by playing in the weak AFC East, which will be weaker with the Bills joining the Jets and Dolphins in rebuilding mode.

The rest of the AFC South and the rest of the NFC North are additional breaks for New England.
