Two-Minute Drill: Detmers Throws No-No, Haaland Signs For Man City

Jonathan Grant | May 11th, 2022

1st Down: Major League Baseball now has two no-hitters in 2022 after the Los Angeles Angels’ Reid Detmers recorded one on Wednesday night in a 12-0 win against the Tampa Bay Rays. But his is the first solo one of the season. Detmers, a 22-year-old left-handed rookie, is the youngest to throw a no-no since Anibal Sanchez did back in 2006. The Angels now have won three in a row and six of their last seven, but they are just a game up on Houston in the AL West currently.

2nd Down: Ja Morant, it was announced on Tuesday, has a bone bruise in his right knee, leaving him in major doubt to make it back to help the Memphis Grizzlies in their series with the Golden State Warriors. They are down 3-1 through four games, and the series could conclude in San Fran without their main star on the court.

3rd Down: Joel Embiid, who was hopeful of winning it himself, conceded defeat in the MVP race to Nikola Jokic on Tuesday, congratulating the star for winning the individual award for a second consecutive season. Embiid also questioned what he has to do to win the honor.

4th Down: Manchester City just keeps getting better and better, and they announced the signing of striker Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday. The 21-year-old has already made a name for himself as a man that can score big goals and lots of them, too, and he will now add another weapon to the impressive arsenal of the defending Premier League champions.
