Red Sox Reach 100 Wins, Stewart Wins WNBA Title, Rodgers’ Sprain Knee

Jonathan Grant | September 13th, 2018

Wednesday night was yet another special night for the Boston Red Sox in what has become a legendary season. For the 100th time this season, the already clinched Sox won a game. And in doing so, they became the fastest to do so since 2001. David Price was impervious on the mound for them, throwing seven scoreless innings as they won 1-0 at Fenway Park over the Blue Jays. This is just the fourth time that they have achieved this feat, with the last time coming way back in 1946. That season saw the return of Ted Williams, one of the all-time greats. They lost the World Series in seven games that year, but they won it the two others in the season where they racked up 100 wins. So a berth in the World Series is right where they will be expecting to be. In very related news, their rivals, the New York Yankees saw their Wild Card race leap cut to just one game after their 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday. The Yankees have got to turn things around soon, or they might have no chance to take out the Red Sox come the playoffs.

Over The Monster

The WNBA season has come and gone in the blink of an eye, ending on Wednesday night with the Seattle Storm completing its sweep of the Washington Mystics by a score of 98-82. The 3-0 sweep was orchestrated by outstanding play by Breanna Stewart and Natasha Howard. The former was not only named regular season MVP, but her 30 point in Game 3 helped push her over the top and win her WNBA Finals MVP as well. The latter, meanwhile, has won her second WNBA title in a row. But few would blame her for enjoying this one better. Last season, she won it as a bench player for the Minnesota Lynx. This season, though, she became a key player. And it showed with her putting up 29 points and grabbing 14 rebounds in the Game 3 blowout.

Last but not least is the news, or lack thereof, on Aaron Rodgers. The Green Bay Packers’ quarterback sustained what looked like a potential season injury on Sunday against the Chicago Bears only to come back after halftime and lead his team to a near miraculous comeback. But now that the adrenaline has wore off, he is dealing with pain. According to him he has a sprained knee. We don’t know his status right now because we don’t know the nature of the sprain. He did confirm he did not need to practice in order to play, so that will not tip his hand over whether he plays or not against the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday. Until the first snap on offense, we may not know who the Vikings will be coming after.
