Tim Horton's Antigonish

Sports Roundup – May 29

The Vegas Golden Knights are heading to the second round of the N-H-L playoffs. Mattias Janmark had his first career hat trick and the Golden Knights eliminated the Minnesota Wild with a 6-2 win in Game 7 of their series. Vegas faces Colorado next.

The Toronto Blue Jays are back in the win column. Toronto beat Cleveland 11-2 to win for the third time in the past four games. The game was called in the bottom of the seventh because of nasty weather. Gusty wind and blowing rain throughout made conditions miserable for all involved.

Short and sweet for the Boston Red Sox. In a game called after 5 1/2 innings because of rain, Boston beat the Miami Marlins 5-2. A drizzle at the onset grew into a downpour, with puddles forming throughout the infield despite the grounds crew’s efforts.

Cody Bellinger is ready to return from a broken leg that’s sidelined him for nearly two months. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says the 2019 N-L M-V-P will start in centre field this weekend against San Francisco. Bellinger has been out since April 5 with a hairline fracture in his left fibula.

Big night for Jayson Tatum. The Celtic scored a career playoff-high 50 points as Boston beat the Brooklyn Nets 125-119 in N-B-A playoff action. The Celtics’ win cut their series deficit to 2-1. Game 4 is Sunday in Boston.

Familiar sight for Toronto Raptors fans. Kawhi Leonard scored 36 points as the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Dallas Mavericks 118-108 in N-B-A playoff action. The Clippers now trail the series 2-1. Paul George added 29 points for the winners. Mavs guard Luka Doncic had a playoff career-high 44 points.
