Giants top Rockies 7-2 for 100th win, hold onto NL West lead

  Giants top Rockies 7-2 for 100th win, hold onto NL West lead DENVER (AP) — The San Francisco Giants reached one milestone and are close to another in their resurgent season. The real goal is another World Series title. Mike Yastrzemski hit a three-run homer, one of four long balls by San Francisco, and the NL West-leading Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 7-2 Friday night to become the season’s first 100-win team. San Francisco started the night leading the Dodgers by a game, with Los Angeles playing later at Arizona. The Giants have won 16 of 20. Kervin Castro (1-0) tossed two innings for his first major league victory, and the Giants reached 100 wins for the first time since going 100-62 in 2003.

There were at least two separate falling incidents in the crowd of a Phish concert at the Chase Center in San Francisco Sunday night, one of which was fatal.

A 47-year-old fan who traveled from Athens, New York, for the concert, Ryan Prosser, died after falling before 9 p.m. during the performances, according to KTVU. Though the investigation is ongoing, police said Tuesday, per the Associated Press, that they believe he "leapt from an elevated area of the arena."

2-time NBA loser San Diego perfect host for 3 teams' camps

  2-time NBA loser San Diego perfect host for 3 teams' camps SAN DIEGO (AP) — Ty Lue was seven when the San Diego Clippers packed up their basketballs and uniforms and moved the 120 miles up the freeway to Los Angeles after the 1983-84 season, becoming the second NBA team to abandon “America’s Finest City” in 13 years. Even at 44, the Los Angeles Clippers’ second-year coach is way too young to remember that struggling team, which featured oft-injured San Diego native Bill Walton as well as Norm Nixon and Terry Cummings. But Lue knows enough about the tourist and Navy town to have his Clippers hold training camp in San Diego this week. The Brooklyn Nets and Denver Nuggets had the same idea.

A witness told KTVU: "We were a couple rows behind the first guy that jumped intentionally and we saw him right when he put his feet on the barrier, stood up and just leapt. He went out of view and I realized later that was a huge drop, maybe four stories or so."

Prosser's longtime friend Frank Bauer told the outlet, however, that he doesn't think he would have jumped. "He was like a brother to me," he said.

Later in the evening, around 9:45 p.m., there was another fall. This time, a concertgoer fell into the lap of another fan, both of whom suffered non-life-threatening injuries, KPIX reported.

Evan Reeves, 44, described to the outlet the moment the person suddenly fell onto him, breaking his leg: "It was a loud thud, then sharp pain in my left leg and a guy's head in my lap. I right away dragged myself a few feet away to get some distance so he could be treated. I knew immediately what had happened because as an usher in the music scene, I had already heard many stories of people falling from balconies over the years."

Opinion: Colin Kaepernick is back in the spotlight with an innovative Netflix series and book

  Opinion: Colin Kaepernick is back in the spotlight with an innovative Netflix series and book The Netflix series "Colin in Black And White" is a look at Colin Kaepernick battling racism while growing up as the biracial son of white parents.A group of Black football players are working out at a combine, a place where college players are measured and tested by NFL coaches and team executives. With Kaepernick narrating, the scene suddenly morphs from players working out, to those same players being in chains, and auctioned off as slaves.

Reeves insisted that he stay to watch the rest of the Phish concert after being cleared by a medical professional on-location.

"My first thought, after hoping the guy's okay, was hoping I wouldn't have to miss the second set. With the on-site doctor's consent, I convinced them to wheel me back in for the last 40 minutes while I waited for my wife to pick me up to take me to an Oakland hospital," he told KPIX.

According to KTVU, the Chase Center offered its "heartfelt condolences" in a statement, adding that the facility is a "state-of-the-art arena that was built and is operated in accordance with all applicable safety requirements governing facilities of its kind."
