Lefty Brian Harman looks calm and focused as he takes a five-shot lead into the final round of The Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. Jon Rahm is Harman’s closest pursuer after posting a 63 early on Saturday. Harman bounced back from a couple of early bogeys to shoot a third-round 69 to get to 12-under for the championship.
Not even the defending Super Bowl champs are immune from training camp headaches. The Chiefs reportedly are not close to getting a new deal done with holdout defensive lineman Chris Jones, who is by far K.C’s best front-seven defensive player.
Jimmy G. looks good to go as training camp opens for his new team, the Raiders. Garoppolo reportedly is recovering nicely from foot surgery.
Veteran running back Melvin Gordon has found a new home. He should be a good fit in Baltimore after signing a one-year, $3.1 million deal with the Ravens. A good fit if he stops fumbling the way he did last season in Denver, I should say.
Number one overall draft pick Bryce Young is in the fold in Carolina. The rookie QB signed a four-year deal worth $37.9 million. That kid does not look like a rookie. I think he can lead the Panthers to a division championship in the NFC South.
The Astros picked a bad time to lose to the A’s for the first time in their last ten meetings. The Rangers’ 16-3 Saturday blowout loss to the Dodgers gave Houston a golden opportunity to move to within two games of Texas in the AL West, but the ‘Stros fell 4-1 to remain three back.
It’s all downhill from here for Milwaukee rookie Sal Frelick, who went 3-3, drove in two runs and made two spectacular catches in right field in his major league debut Saturday as the Brew Crew clipped the Braves 4-3.
