As Franmil Reyes stood waiting in the on-deck circle, he silently begged for a chance to end Cleveland’s losing streak. He got his wish. Reyes hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning as the Indians stopped a nine-game losing streak — their longest under manager Terry Francona — with a 7-4 win Thursday night against the Kansas City Royals.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes caused a little bit of panic in Kansas City back in April when he was spotted wearing a walking boot on his foot.

The walking boot got a lot of people wondering about his health and whether his surgically repaired toe would be fully healed in time for the start of the 2021 season. It appears the answer to that question is yes and we know that because Mahomes gave up an update on his toe during an interview with NFL Network on Thursday.

“The toe’s feeling great,” Mahomes said.

Mahomes underwent surgery back in February to fix a turf toe injury that he suffered during the divisional round of the playoffs. The Chiefs quarterback played two-and-a half games with the injury, which only made things worse. Mahomes wasn’t able to finally get the toe operated on until three days after Kansas City’s Super Bowl loss to Tampa Bay.

Five months after the surgery, Mahomes seems good to go.

Vladimir Tarasenko has asked the St. Louis Blues for a trade, a person with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press on Thursday. The Blues declined comment when asked about Tarasenko’s trade request, which was first reported by The Athletic. The person spoke on condition of anonymity.
