Skenes Leads Pirates Over Reds

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Rookie Paul Skenes pitched one-run ball over six innings to win his fourth straight decision and lead the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Cincinnati Reds 4-1 on Monday night. Skenes (4-0) allowed six hits in six innings with seven strikeouts and one walk, lowering his ERA to 2.29. The 22-year-old right-hander has 53 strikeouts and seven walks in 39 1/3 innings, and the Pirates are 6-1 in his starts. David Bednar pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 15th save in 18 chances. He has converted 14 in a row after blowing three of his first four.

PIAA Appeals Aliquippa Court Ruling

PIAA officials have asked Commonwealth Court to intervene in its dispute with Aliquippa regarding the Association’s Competition Formula. The Quips were slated to be upgraded to Class 5A following two years of statewide success and multiple transfers into its football program. The school sued PIAA in Beaver County Court and was granted a temporary injunction May 23, barring PIAA from moving Aliquippa up from 4A where it had played the past four seasons. The Association asked Beaver County Judge James Ross to stay implementation of his temporary injunction pending Commonwealth Court proceedings. That request was denied. The WPIAL, a member district of PIAA, re-worked football schedules two weeks ago as a result of Judge Ross’ injunction, moving Aliquippa into its traditional Beaver County 4A conference. PIAA executive staff would not comment on active litigation.

Celtics Win 18th NBA Championship

BOSTON (AP) — Jayson Tatum had 31 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds as the Celtics topped the Dallas Mavericks 106-88 to claim the franchise’s 18th championship, breaking a tie with the Los Angeles Lakers for the most in league history. Boston earned its latest title on the 16th anniversary of hoisting its last Larry O’Brien Trophy in 2008. It marks the 13th championship won this century by one of the city’s Big 4 professional sports franchises. Jaylen Brown added 21 points. Jrue Holiday finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Luka Doncic finished with 28 points and 12 rebounds for Dallas, which failed to extend the series after avoiding a sweep with a 38-point win in Game 4.

Roger Goodell Defends ‘Sunday Ticket’ Package

LOS ANGELES (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reiterated during testimony in federal court Monday that the league’s “Sunday Ticket” package, the subject of a class-action lawsuit, is a premium product while also defending the league’s broadcast model. Goodell was called as a witness by the NFL as the trial for the lawsuit filed by “Sunday Ticket” subscribers entered its third week. The class-action covers 2.4 million residential subscribers and 48,000 businesses who paid for the package from 2011 through 2022. The lawsuit claims the league broke antitrust laws by selling its package of out-of-market Sunday afternoon games at an inflated price. The subscribers also say the league restricted competition by offering “Sunday Ticket” only on a satellite provider.
