Punchless Pirates lose to Brewers for seventh consecutive setback

The sixth inning summed up the Pirates’ past two weeks well. The Pirates had men on first and third with no outs in a one-run game. But after a strikeout and two weak fly balls, Adam Frazier and Starling Marte were left stranded Tuesday night in a 1-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at PNC Park. The

Steelers notebook: ‘Statuesque’ Bears QB Mike Glennon impresses Mike Tomlin

Mike Tomlin was referring to Mike Glennon’s height and not a perceived lack of mobility when he called the Chicago Bears quarterback “statuesque” at his weekly news conference Tuesday. Glennon has come under scrutiny in Chicago for the Bears’ 0-2 start, particularly after he turned the ball over

Mike Tomlin insists James Harrison isn’t a forgotten man on Steelers defense

James Harrison will be a viable part of the Steelers defense this season. It didn’t happen Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, and it might not happen this weekend in Chicago against the Bears. But it will happen, coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday. Just don’t expect him to give prior notice. “

MLB home run record on track to fall Tuesday

NEW YORK — Giancarlo Stanton’s smacks, Aaron Judge’s jolts and all those dizzying long balls helped Major League Baseball move another poke closer to the inevitable. Nearly two decades after the height of the Steroids Era, the sport is on track to break its season record for home runs on Tuesday
