Jorge Polanco matches career high with five hits as Twins crush Blue Jays 9-1 TORONTO — Jorge Polanco matched a career high with five hits, including a two-run homer, as the Minnesota Twins cruised to a 9-1 win over the listless Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday. Kyle Gibson (3-1) was dominant, striking out 11 over six innings of work, and allowing two hits and one run for Minnesota (23-12). Eddie Rosario, C.J. Cron and Jonathan Schoop added homers as the Twins completed a three-game sweep of Toronto and earned its 10th victory in 13 games. Ryne Harper, Mike Morin and Blake Parker pitched three scoreless innings out of the Twins bullpen.

Joe Thornton wasn't ready to say whether he plans to continue his career in the aftermath of his club's elimination on Tuesday night.

"No. Nope," the veteran San Jose Sharks forward told reporters, including NHL Network's Jon Morosi, when asked if he's thought about his future following the Sharks' 5-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

Thornton is a pending unrestricted free agent who will turn 40 on July 2, one day after free agency opens.

He contributed 51 points in 73 games during the 2018-19 regular season, adding 10 points in 19 playoff contests.

‘Game of Thrones’ Just Rained Fire on One Mom and Her Girl, Named After ‘Khaleesi’

‘Game of Thrones’ Just Rained Fire on One Mom and Her Girl, Named After ‘Khaleesi’ Jasmine Estrada thought nothing could make her second-guess naming her daughter after Daenerys Targaryen, aka “Khaleesi,” one of the main characters in the mega-hit HBO show Game of Thrones. Then she saw Sunday’s episode. “Oh my god,” Estrada said. “She lost her marbles.” The series’ penultimate episode featured Daenerys going from a justice-seeking yet flawed queen to a genocidal madwoman who burned down a city with innocent women and children trapped inside. Estrada’s 6-year-old daughter is called “Khalessi”—an idea from Estrada’s mother, who mispronounced the name, leading to the misspelling.

Tuesday's loss ended Thornton's 21st NHL season. He's spent parts of 14 campaigns with the Sharks.

The supremely skilled playmaker has signed one-year contracts to remain with San Jose before each of the last two seasons.

Thornton ranks eighth on the NHL's all-time assists list, and 14th among the league's all-time points leaders.

He's also the Sharks' all-time assists leader, sits second in franchise history in points and games played, and ranks third on San Jose's all-time goals list.

Stress Test: Ranking every Toronto Raptors playoff series by pressure.
The title is fairly self-explanatory. We’re reviewing and ranking each and every Raptors playoff series by a very important metric: Toronto’s collective sphincter tightness. Breathe deep, Raptor fans. The pressure’s off. That may seem like a funny thing to say right before the franchise’s first ever Finals appearance, but for anyone who spends time taking the temperature of the team, and the NBA eco-system around them, it’s the truth. Toronto fans are looking forward to a series for the first time since 2013. U.S. media has (mostly) gone a solid week without referencing the Raptors as “tortured”.
