PITTSBURGH — The details were different, but the story was the same.

A day after the Pirates squandered six hitless innings from Mitch Keller in a loss to the Cardinals, they couldn’t capitalize on a dominant 11-strikeout start by Joe Musgrove. Cardinals ace Jack Flaherty baffled the Bucs’ bats with 11 strikeouts of his own, and left-hander Derek Holland gave up a homer to Yadier Molina in the seventh inning of Pittsburgh’s 2-1 defeat on Sunday afternoon at PNC Park.

Anderson Tejeda Hits First Career Home Run from Right Side; Rangers Lose Fourth Straight

You know things are going really wrong when even the most reliable players have a rough night.

Kyle Gibson fought hard through 4 2/3 innings on Saturday night, including 37 pitches in the third inning where he allowed two runs. Nevertheless, he and the bullpen minimized the damage and kept it close to give the Rangers a chance to come back.

In the top of the seventh inning, rookie infielder Anderson Tejeda stepped up to the plate to face Seattle left-handed starter Justus Sheffield and launched a two-out, game-tying home run deep to left field. What’s more is it was Tejeda’s first career home run as a right-handed hitter. He had been exclusively a left-handed hitter throughout his professional career and just began switch-hitting in 2019.

“I wasn’t expecting that, just put it that way,” Woodward said with a smile. “I had talked to a lot of our player development

Study says students could lose $90,000 over their lifetime

Going to college immediately after high school has been a rite of passage for millions of students. Now, more college-bound students are considering a gap year amid rising coronavirus cases and concerns about the value of college instruction that may be partly or all online.

A new study out this week by SimpsonScarborough finds that 40 percent of incoming freshmen are likely or highly likely to not attend any four-year college this fall. Last week, Harvard reported that more than 20% of its first-year students are deferring enrollment.

But there could be a downside to delaying college by a year: the potential loss of $90,000 in lifetime earnings, according to a recent study from economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. That might seem counter-intuitive, given that the pandemic has pushed the jobless rate higher, prompting questions from families about whether it’s the best time to make a

Black male leaders say Biden will lose election if he doesn’t choose Black woman as VP

WASHINGTON – More than 100 Black male leaders, including activists, preachers, rappers and celebrities, in an open letter Monday called on Joe Biden to pick a Black woman as his running mate, saying that if he does not, he will lose the election.

“As someone who has said throughout the campaign that VP Joe Biden needs to choose a Black woman VP, the urgency for that pick has gone from something that SHOULD happen to something that HAS to happen,” the open letter said, which was published the week that Biden is expected to announce his running mate.

The letter was created in solidarity with an April letter signed by more than 700 black women leaders – including pastors, doctors, lawyers and celebrities – calling on Biden to “recognize and seize this moment” by picking a black woman as his running mate.

A high-achiever at her government school in Jammu and Kashmir, Nadiya Akbar wants to pursue her dream of studying medicine – Samaan Lateef

Pausing to catch her breath, Nadiya Akbar, 16, squats on a rocky precipice overlooking the miniature houses of her village of Wagoora nestled in the valley below.

Since last August, Ms Akbar has had too much time to think. A high-achiever at her government school in Jammu and Kashmir, Ms Akbar’s parents had pooled together their savings in anticipation of Ms Akbar pursuing her dream of studying medicine.

Now, one year on, her dream lies in tatters and she has been forced to drop out of school and herd her family’s livestock to make ends meet.

“I was developing a severe infection in my right ear and I used to go to a local hospital where doctors treated me,” explained Ms Akbar. “I think that was the

I’m confused about whether I should eat before exercising or not. Will working out ‘fasted’ in the morning help me lose fat?

Whether you eat a meal, snack, or nothing at all before working out is down to personal preference.

  • When it comes to fat loss, studies show that whether you eat before a morning workout or not is irrelevant — what matters is staying in a calorie deficit overall.

  • Having some food before exercise might give you more energy to work harder and thus expend more energy.

  • Ultimately it’s personal preference — there’s no one best routine for everyone, and training “fasted” doesn’t speed up fat loss.

  • If you decide to eat before working out, registered dietitian Shana Spence recommends you aim to eat some protein and carbs, and give yourself time to digest.

What we’ll lose if the pandemic puts an end to the sharing of food

My 2-year-old has a hard time sharing. Open a bag of Goldfish crackers, and good luck getting one or two for yourself. Lucky for him, now that he spends most of his time within the confines of our home, he no longer has to do nearly as much sharing as before.

When my son’s Bay Area daycare shut down in mid-March, so did many of the opportunities for him to learn—and grapple with—the art and discipline of accepting that we don’t get everything to ourselves all the time. It’s an important lesson for toddlers. But lately, I’ve been thinking about how the pandemic, and all of the new restrictions the crisis has introduced into our daily life, has cut down on opportunities for us adults to learn to

What to do before you lose your job

Job hunters and those about to become job hunters have to worry about challenges on several fronts — they have to find a job soon, the job has to pay an acceptable amount, and they have to pay their bills and put bread on the table in the meantime.

During this time, they also have to handle the stress of not knowing whether they will lose the house, the car, the savings, the retirement account, and possibly the jewelry and the collectibles.

If you are about to lose your job, time is of the essence to take care of your finances. If you do not have another job lined up, your time out of work may be indefinite and your cash flow uncertain.

Do you have an emergency fund to tide you over for three months, six months, or more?

If you don’t, then you must spring into action in
