What Did You Miss Sunday?
--Chris Jones says the release of Duron Carter didn't come down to one specific thing, but it also didn't come because of Terrell Owens. Jones says he did some evaluating of his 3-4 football team during the break and decided when it came to Carter a change was needed. A few teams are inquiring about Carter's services with the Alouettes being the early favourite to sign the receiver.
--The Regina Red Sox were beaten 8-5 in Game 1 of the WMBL final in Medicine Hat as the Mavericks scored at least one run in every inning except for one, Game 2 is Monday in the Hat.
--Chicago Cubs rookie 3rd baseman David Bote hit a two-out two-strike walkoff grand slam to give his team a 4-3 win over Washington in MLB's Sunday nighter. The win leaves the Cubs, who have the best record in the National League, with a three game cushion over Milwaukee in the NL Central.
--Brooks Koepka is the fifth player in history to win the U-S Open and P-G-A Championship in the same year. The 28-year-old American finished at 16-under 264, two shots ahead of second-placed Tiger Woods, after the closing round at the Bellerive Country Club in the last major of the year.
--Brady Tkachuk has decided to sign a contract with the Ottawa Senators instead of returning to Boston University for his sophomore season. Tkachuk, the 4th overall pick and son of Keith and brother of Matt, had 31 points in 40 games as a freshman last season and led Boston University in assists. Tkachuk also helped the United States win the bronze medal at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship with nine points in seven games.
