Minnesota’s Eddie Rosario, Bobby Wilson and Max Kepler all left early because of heat illness on a scorching afternoon at Wrigley Field, as the Chicago Cubs beat the Twins 14-9.
The Cubs said it was 96 degrees when Rosario exited during the bottom of the fifth inning Saturday. He hit a two-run homer in the top of the fifth, then left shortly after fielding a hit by Anthony Rizzo.
Nats ace Max Scherzer struck out three Rays batters on nine pitches in the sixth inning, joining Lefty Grove, Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan and Randy Johnson as the only pitchers in MLB history to record multiple immaculate innings.
Max Scherzer’s surprise single, mad dash beat Braves
The Nationals’ ace wasn’t scheduled for their key series in Atlanta, but his pinch hit set up a win in extras.
Bosh has been retired from the game since 2017, when a second recurrence of blood clots pushed him out of the remainder of his contract with the Heat. Multiple instances of blood clots require patients to be put on blood thinners, and those drugs present potentially fatal risks for high-level athletes — hard contact could lead to internal bleeding, which is especially dangerous when on blood thinners.
Still, Bosh has been adamant that he will return to the NBA, and that he should be ruled eligible to do so. The NBA has a fitness to play clause that prevents players from appearing in games while they have life-threatening injuries or illnesses, and for that reason, Bosh has been kept out of the league.
The NBPA has been silent on Bosh’s case, citing medical privacy.
