Aj Pollock Is Making An Impact In The Leadoff Spot For The Chicago White Sox With Tim Anderson Sidelined

AJ Pollock hit a chopper to third with two outs in the eighth inning Monday against the Houston Astros.

Alex Bregman charged but couldn’t come up with the ball, and Pollock reached on an infield hit.

It was the beginning of a big rally for the Chicago White Sox.

Pollock advanced to third on Andrew Vaughn’s double to right and scored on Eloy Jiménez’s game-tying two-run double to left. The Sox pulled ahead later in the inning on Yoán Moncada’s two-run single to center.

Pollock had two hits in the 4-2 win. It was his third straight two-hit game as he fills in at the top of the order for injured shortstop Tim Anderson.

Pollock had three hits, an RBI and a run Aug. 7 against the Texas Rangers in his first game in the leadoff spot with Anderson out, first with a two-game suspension and then the hand injury. And Pollock has continued to hit.

He led off Saturday with a single and scored on a sacrifice fly, and he added a solo home run in the eighth in a 6-4 win against the Detroit Tigers.

He homered Sunday leading off the third, then doubled in the fifth and scored the tying run in a 5-3 victory against the Tigers.

Pollock went 11-for-28 with four doubles, two home runs, four RBIs and six runs in his first seven games with Anderson out. He slashed .393/.438/.750 during the stretch.

“Honestly it’s weird when you look at the numbers,” Pollock said before Monday’s game. “For me, they are pretty skewed, but I don’t know if that’s a freak thing or what.”

Pollock entered Tuesday’s must-see pitching matchup between Dylan Cease and Astros veteran Justin Verlander slashing .397/.435/.641 in 18 games this season in the No. 1 slot.

“It really shouldn’t matter,” Pollock said of the spot in the lineup. “As a hitter you prepare the same way. Maybe get things going a little bit quicker when you are in the leadoff spot. But other than that, nothing really changes.”

He was 31-for-78 with seven doubles, four home runs, 12 RBIs and 14 runs in those 18 games.

“You look at his credentials,” La Russa said Sunday. “He’s a quality big-league hitter and big-league defender. He saw the need when Tim was missing. If he had to hit second, third or fourth, he’d do that too.”

Overall, Pollock is slashing .246/.295/.378 with 20 doubles, seven home runs, 39 RBIs and 40 runs in 95 games.

He was back in the top spot and playing center field Tuesday. It was his 12th start in center this season, with 60 in left and 10 in right.

Starting center fielder Luis Robert continues to recover from a sprained left wrist suffered Friday against the Tigers while attempting to steal second base.

La Russa said before Tuesday’s game the key is Robert making improvement with his swing.

“Everything else is ready to play,” La Russa said. “He was not near enough to 100% to play this game (Tuesday), but he’s doing treatment and we’re anxious to see the swings he takes.”

La Russa does not see a need for Robert to go on the injured list.

“He may play as early as (Wednesday) or sometime in the next couple of days,” La Russa said. “He’s feeling better, he’s just got to take swings.”

As for Anderson, the Sox shortstop is sidelined for six weeks after tearing the sagittal band on his left middle finger Aug. 6 against the Rangers.

“He’s a quick healer,” La Russa said. “He’s always been ‘sooner rather than later,’ but he still has a cast on his finger. (It) doesn’t come off until Thursday. I think once he starts getting functional, it’ll happen pretty fast. Not real fast, just faster than normal.”

Serena Williams Vs Emma Raducanu - Western &Amp; Southern Open: Live Score And Updates

Serena Williams collapses in Cincinnati after Britain’s Emma Raducanu lost 6-4, 6-0 in just over an hour, leaving 23-time Grand Slam champion with just the US Open before retiring

Serena Williams knew defeat was a possibility against Emma Raducanu at the Cincinnatti Open. But even she wouldn’t have expected it to be as brutal as this.

The 19-year-old US Open champion swept retired Williams in just over an hour, winning 6-4 6-0 in a ruthless, composed display. It was one of the best performances she had since winning the US Open last year.

There were no goodbye words or tears on the court afterwards, unlike in Toronto last week when Williams lost to Belinda Bencic. She quickly gathered her things and left the field waving to the crowd who were still cheering her on as if she had won.

“I think we all have to honor Serena and her amazing career,” Raducanu said afterwards. “I am so grateful for the experience of having played her and for our careers to cross paths. It was an honor to share the court with her.

“The vibe tonight was amazing. Even when you were cheering for it, I was all for it!

“I was nervous from the first point to the last, she can come back from anything and I was glad I was able to keep my composure.”

Did Tony La Russa hear a fan’s suggestion? The Chicago White Sox manager explains his 8th-inning pinch-running decision.

Did Tony La Russa Hear A Fan’s Suggestion? The Chicago White Sox Manager Explains His 8Th-Inning Pinch-Running Decision.

A video of a fan calling for Tony La Russa to pinch-run Adam Engel for Eloy Jiménez from a few rows away — and the Chicago White Sox manager making the move in the eighth inning of Monday’s game — went viral, even appearing on MLB Network.

When asked about it before Tuesday’s game against the Houston Astros, La Russa said it was the first he had heard about the fan, but he added with a smile: “Well, make his day. Tell him I heard him.”

Jiménez tied the game with a two-run double with two outs in the eighth. José Abreu was batting when La Russa took a couple of steps on the field to call time and have Engel run for Jiménez.

Engel made it to third when Abreu and Yasmani Grandal walked (Abreu intentionally). Engel and Abreu scored on a single by Yoán Moncada, and the Sox went on to win 4-2.

La Russa explained the process before Tuesday’s game.

“I spent a lot of time talking with (coaches) Jerry (Narron) and Miguel (Cairo),” La Russa said. “It was a really tough call. I can tell you why. We went back and forth with it. It’s the eighth inning, the score is tied. So if it’s tied again in the ninth, in the 10th, and Jiménez’s spot is coming up — he’s third place in the inning — do you want to take his bat out?

“His defense (in left field) has been good enough. I worried more about if it’s a close play (at the plate) and he’s going to try to run it, he might hurt himself. That was a difficult choice. Ninth inning, sure. Eighth inning, in a tie game, I said I’d rather not. I’d regret getting him hurt.

“And secondly, we’ll have real good defense out there (with Engel, who came in at center while AJ Pollock shifted to left) and if he gets up can do something too. That was the hesitation. It was a very tough call.”

Polio circulating locally in New York area poses risk to unvaccinated, CDC says

Polio Circulating Locally In New York Area Poses Risk To Unvaccinated, Cdc Says

Polio has been circulating locally in the New York metropolitan area for months after an individual introduced the virus from abroad, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

An unvaccinated young adult from Rockland County, a New York suburb, caught polio in June and was paralyzed. The individual had not traveled abroad during the period he was exposed to polio, and the strain he caught is linked to a weakened form of the virus used in the oral vaccine, according to an investigation by the CDC released Tuesday.

The United States stopped using the oral polio vaccine in 2000, meaning the chain of transmission is from someone who received the oral vaccine outside the country, according to the CDC. Genetic analysis linked the vaccine-derived strain circulating in the New York metropolitan area to sewage samples detected in Israel and the United Kingdom.

The agency said it has found three other people it suspects of having polio, but who have tested negative so far. They were classified as “persons under investigation”.

The oral polio vaccine uses a live virus strain that can still replicate, which means unvaccinated people can catch the virus from recently immunized individuals. The United States now uses a vaccine, given by injection, in which the virus is inactivated so that it cannot spread.

After infection was confirmed in the young adult, sewage monitoring found 21 sewage samples that tested positive for polio, 13 in Rockland County and eight in neighboring Orange County. Twenty of these samples, collected from May to July, are genetically linked to the strain captured by the young adult. The sewage samples were originally collected as part of New York State’s Covid monitoring system.

Polio has also been detected in sewage samples from New York City, state health officials confirmed Friday. The Rockland County adult’s case is only the second case of community transmission of polio in the United States since 1979.

The unvaccinated Rockland County resident who caught polio attended a large rally eight days before developing symptoms. It can take 7 to 21 days from initial exposure to the polio virus for a person to develop paralysis. The individual did not travel internationally during the exposure period, according to the CDC.

The Rockland County adult was hospitalized and then referred to a physical rehabilitation center.

Although related to the oral vaccine strain, the virus the individual caught had 10 changes in one region of the pathogen. This indicates that the virus may have been circulating for up to a year, although where transmission began is unknown, according to the CDC.

No additional cases of paralytic polio have been confirmed, although CDC officials have warned that detection of the virus in sewage samples collected over more than two months in Rockland and Orange indicates community transmission of the virus. which puts unvaccinated people at risk of paralysis. .

“Low immunization coverage in the patient’s county of residence indicates that the community is at risk for additional cases of paralytic polio,” CDC officials wrote in the report. “Even a single case of paralytic poliomyelitis represents a public health emergency in the United States.”

About one in 1,900 infections with the vaccine-derived strain results in paralysis in unvaccinated people.

Polio immunization coverage for children under two years of age in Rockland County has increased from 67% in 2020 to approximately 60% in 2022. In parts of the county, immunization coverage in this age group was as low as lower than 37%, according to the CDC.

The CDC said disruptions caused by the Covid pandemic have led to a drop in polio vaccine administration, leaving communities at risk of outbreaks.

No cases of wild poliovirus, the most common form, have appeared in the United States since 1979 after a successful vaccination campaign that began in the 1950s, according to the CDC. However, travelers have occasionally brought polio to the United States

DJ LeMahieu sits out third straight game because of toe issue, leaving Yankees shorthanded again

Dj Lemahieu Sits Out Third Straight Game Because Of Toe Issue, Leaving Yankees Shorthanded Again

The Yankees were short again Tuesday. They were without DJ LeMahieu for the third straight game as the infielder was seeking a second opinion on how to deal with the inflammation in his right big toe, which was causing him discomfort when he swung a bat.

The Bombers gamble that playing shorthanded will be better than losing players for the full 10 days on the injured list. That is amplified when the team is going through a stretch like this, having lost 10 of their last 12 games and being shut out in back-to-back games for the first time since 2016.

Aaron Boone said they could make a roster move soon if LeMahieu isn’t ready.

“We’ll probably make that decision sometime tomorrow or the next day. It’s beneficial to take the next seven days or so (off) or we’re ready to go,” the Yankees manager said. “So I really don’t have to lean either way on it. Other than holding out some hope that he can be in there more.”

In the last 11 games, including Tuesday, the Yankees have played shorthanded eight times because of Anthony Rizzo’s back and LeMahieu’s toe. In that span the Bombers have gone 2-8.

LeMahieu had been dealing with the toe for a while. He had a cortisone shot at the All-Star break, but has felt the discomfort come back in the last week.

“He’s kind of waiting for a second opinion. Talking to him today, it does feel like the last couple of days being down has helped him,” Boone said. “So I’m hopeful for tomorrow. But we’ll see.”

Rizzo missed the series in St. Louis and the first two games in Seattle with lower-back tightness.


Giancarlo Stanton was on the field working out again before Tuesday’s game and the Yankees have been encouraged by how he has bounced back. The slugger said on Monday he needed a few more days of work followed by a good “bounce back” before he was ready to start a rehab assignment.

Boone said Tuesday that would be soon.

“I would expect in the next couple of days,” Boone said.

Stanton said he wants the “least amount,” of rehab games possible, so it is realistic to think that if everything continues to go smoothly he would be back in the Yankees lineup sometime next week.


Harrison Bader has spent two days working out in the pool and on the AlterG anti-gravity treadmill. The center-fielder, who the Yankees traded Jordan Montgomery for at the deadline, came to the Yankees in a walking boot that he has been in since getting a cortisone shot July 27 trying to eliminate the plantar fasciitis that has had him off the field since June 26.

“It’s definitely been a challenge. Walking in here in a boot, I’m sure everybody in here was like, ‘We just traded for this guy in a boot. Are we serious?’ But there’s always a bigger perspective involved and I think that I’m definitely here for a reason,” Bader said. “So I’m just focused on getting healthy so I can be effective for this team.”

Bader, a native of New York City who went to Riverdale’s Horace Mann High School,  said it’s been difficult coming to a new team without being able to play. He said having former Cardinal teammate Matt Carpenter here has helped.

“I wouldn’t say excruciating. Again, you’ve got to keep that perspective. At the end of the day I’m still healthy and surrounded by people that want to help me. I’m back in New York, surrounded by my family and people who love me. There are far worse things that could have happened, even just outside this game. From a professional standpoint, it is very difficult, but it’s nothing that I can’t overcome,” Bader said. “But there’s a process involved and I’ve learned a lot and I’ve educated myself a lot on how to take care of my feet specifically, which I don’t think I necessarily took for granted for but now you just learn something new. So I’m just looking forward to just applying all the information so I can make sure this never happens again because it has been very debilitating.

“But once you get healthy, it’s off to the races.”

CORE Act goals need President Joe Biden, say Colorado Democrats

Core Act Goals Need President Joe Biden, Say Colorado Democrats

As the conservation-focused CORE Act stalls in Congress — having been passed four times by the House of Representatives but stalled in an equally divided Senate — leading Colorado Democrats are now pushing President Joe Biden to sue the executive action.

Tuesday, the senses. Michael Bennett and John Hickenlooper, Rep. Joe Neguse, and Gov. Jared Polis hosted Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack near historic Camp Hale to plead for any action the president might take to achieve Colorado’s goals Outdoor Recreation. and Law on Economy.

Surrounded by nearly two dozen advocates and other onlookers, Vilsack said he would bring back a favorable report of “extraordinary collaboration and partnership” behind the initiative. But it would be premature to say exactly what those actions might be.

Colorado Democrats credited Bennet with convening the roundtable and literally bringing Vilsack to the table near Leadville. The CORE Act is essentially four separate pieces of legislation that, combined, would add various protections to more than 400,000 acres of public lands statewide, the attorneys say.

Neguse introduced the bill in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives four times in different ways. However, he was unable to pass through the equally divided Senate. In May, a Senate committee deadlocked on the proposal, a setback but nonetheless the furthest in the legislative process, according to Colorado Public Radio.

With time pressing on this Congress and the Democrats’ slim advantage in the Senate hanging in the air in November, supporters are hoping to use the Oval Office to win protections for state public lands, although that wouldn’t be as lasting than federal law.

“Our preference is obviously to pass the CORE Act. We will continue to fight for this,” Bennet said. But there are non-legislative options, like national monument designations and mining bans, he added.

“We’re just going to have to decide what will be appropriate, and we haven’t made those decisions yet,” he said.

The choice of Camp Hale for the roundtable was deliberate. The CORE Act would create a new National Historic Landscape designation for the area that prepared the legendary 10th Mountain Division to fight in the Alps during World War II.

Vilsack and others note that the dwindling number of World War II veterans in general, and veterans who passed through Camp Hale in particular, put particular stress on the project.

“This conversation needs to happen, in a sense, yesterday,” Vilsack said.

He didn’t have a specific timeline for telling President Joe Biden about the request, but said he would make sure his team moved forward “as quickly as possible.”

The bill itself did not win support from Colorado Republicans. U.S. Representative Lauren Boebert, whose district includes much of the land that would be protected under the law, called it a “partisan land grab promoted by big-city Democrats who are unaffected by bureaucracy. use of the land they grow’. in the gorge of rural Colorado.

An energy company paid her husband nearly $1 million as a consultant over two years, according to congressional disclosures. She was also a fierce supporter throughout her tenure.

Democrats rejected that criticism on Tuesday and argued it had broad support.

“I expect there will always be criticism from people who don’t appreciate the importance of public lands in our state,” Bennett said, without naming anyone in particular.
