Yordan Alvarez, Kyle Tucker, Jeremy Peña, Michael Brantley and Yuli Gurriel all went deep for the Astros, who set a franchise mark for most home runs in an inning. It has happened seven other times in league history. Tucker added his second homer of the night and seventh of the season in the fourth inning – a grand slam off Tyler Danish — as Houston won for the 13th time in 15 games. José Urquidy (3-1) allowed 12 hits and four runs, including home runs to Rafael Devers and J.D. Martinez, but lasted five innings to record the victory.

A day later, Boston pitcher Nick Pivetta barely allowed Houston to put the ball in play. Pivetta pitched a two-hitter, Xander Bogaerts hit a solo home run, Rafael Devers added an RBI double and the Red Sox beat the Astros 5-1 on Wednesday night in the rubber match of their three-game series. It marked the first complete game by a Red Sox pitcher since Chris Sale on June 5, 2019, at Kansas City. It was the first at Fenway Park since Rick Porcello against the New York Yankees on Aug. 3, 2018. "He had that look. He had it," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “From the bullpen, he came in, he gets into this — he goes somewhere else mentally.” It was the fourth complete game in the major leagues this season after Ryan Detmers’ … [Read more...] about Red Sox, Nick Pivetta shut down Astros with two-hitter

Although it's true that pros generally purchase most furniture and other decorative items from trade-specific vendors, many also rely on tried-and-true retailers accessible to the general public. We asked 11 designers to share their favorite pieces that anyone can buy, and why those items never let them down. Here are their picks. - Case goods Why not invest in a piece that can serve multiple purposes? Designer Peti Lau likes the Channing three-drawer console table from Jonathan Adler ($1,995, jonathanadler.com), because, with its drawers and narrow footprint, it can "function either as a desk or a console." "I like the simple white lacquer and silver metal finishes, which give it a more timeless look," says Lau, who does work in Los Angeles, New York, London and Thailand. - Lighting … [Read more...] about The 11 home pieces designers can’t stop using

NEW YORK A heavily armed 18-year-old man shot 10 people dead on Saturday at a Buffalo, New York grocery store in a "racially motivated" attack that he live-streamed on camera, authorities said.

Listen to this article The Moto3 race began in chaotic fashion as rain began to fall from the opening lap of 22, with drama striking at the final corner. Championship leader Sergio Garcia crashed in tandem with Aspar teammate Izan Guevara, Snipers Honda rider Andrea Migno and Max Racing Husqvarna’s Ayumu Sasaki. Then up at Turn 3 at the start of the second lap Ajo KTM’s Daniel Holgado crashed, with more riders tumbling later in the lap as MT Helmets Honda rookie Diogo Moreira – who grabbed the holeshot – trading the lead with Leopard’s Tatsuki Suzuki. Due to the rain, the race was red-flagged and restarted over 14 laps. However, by the time the race resumed the rain had gone and sunshine battered the track. After an intense 14-lap battle in dry conditions, it was Ajo KTM’s Jaume Masia who prevailed to take his second win of the season after pulling off a daring move to retake a lead he held for much of the race from Sasaki on the last lap. Masia took the chequered … [Read more...] about 2022 MotoGP French GP: Full Moto2 and Moto3 race results
Listen to this article The first quarter of 2022 hasn't been the best for Carvana. The online used car company is arguably best known for its big automotive vending machines, but right now it's known for laying off 12 percent of its workforce. That equates to 2,500 jobs, and it comes amid a Q1 2022 net loss of $506 million. That didn't stop Carvana from also spending $2.2 billion, which we'll discuss in a bit. The reason for the net loss? In a letter to investors, the company mentions skyrocketing used car prices with higher interest rates, along with disruptions in Carvana's reconditioning and logistics network. Other COVID-19-related issues are also mentioned, though details aren't provided. That said, the company reported revenue of $3.49 billion, which actually represents a 56 percent increase from the first quarter of 2021. Curiously, Carvana also sold 14 percent more cars through the first quarter of this year, 105,185 to be exact. However, profit-per-car is down by … [Read more...] about Carvana Lays Off 2,500 Workers, Buys Auction House For $2.2 Billion
"Top Chef" is always full of curveballs, but we didn't quite see this one coming. For NPR, food writer Gustavo Arellano wrote that Tucson Mexican food is "the most unappreciated Mexican foodways in the United States." Houstonians know what it's like to be perpetually underrated, so we have to give Tucson this one—even though it can't rival Texas' biggest and best city in literally any other food category, including Vietnamese, Chinese , Indian , Nigerian , Cajun , barbecue , you name it. According to the Arizona Daily Star , the city of Tucson contributed $4.8 million to Visit Tucson's budget in 2019, and in 2021, the CVB reported a $205 million economic impact over the last fiscal year, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. … [Read more...] about ‘Top Chef: Houston’ contestants treated to a finale in … Tucson?
