Canadian Milos Raonic advances to Stuttgart quarterfinals with tiebreak win

Canadian Milos Raonic advances to Stuttgart quarterfinals with tiebreak win STUTTGART, Germany — Canada's Milos Raonic is off to the quarterfinals of the Stuttgart Open. The No. 6 seed from Thornhill, Ont., edged Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France 6-4, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (1) in second-round action of the ATP Tour 250 grass-court event on Wednesday. It was the second third-set tiebreak win in a row for Raonic, who beat Australian qualifier Alexei Popyrin in the first round. The hard-hitting Raonic out-aced the 79th-ranked Tsonga 24-15. The Canadian saved all four of Tsonga's four break-point chances. Raonic, the runner-up in Stuttgart last year, will face Hungary's Marton Fucsovics in the quarterfinals. The 52nd-ranked Fucsovics upset No.

New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton will undergo an MRI after suffering a right knee contusion against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, the team announced.

Stanton appeared to injure himself sliding into third base during the bottom of the third when he made contact with left-hander Clayton Richard, who was trying to cover the bag.

However, Stanton told Yankees manager Aaron Boone postgame that the injury also could have happened when he slid into second base, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.

Oilers' Holland expects McDavid to be ready for training camp

Oilers' Holland expects McDavid to be ready for training camp Edmonton Oilers general manager Ken Holland expects Connor McDavid to be ready for the start of training camp after suffering a knee injury in the team's regular-season finale in April. "He's doing good," Holland said, according to the team. "I've seen him twice this week he's rehabbing. "I expect to see him on the ice at training camp. Working very closely with our medical team and the medical people that he's got in Toronto to make sure he's getting the best care possible. He's in great spirits." McDavid injured his posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) after crashing into the post at nearly full speed but didn't require surgery.

Pettersson hurt his right knee Thursday night after getting tangled up with Montreal Canadiens forward Jesperi Kotkaniemi in the second period. Pettersson immediately reached for the knee after the collision.

McCutchen was hurt during a rundown in the first inning and came out of the game.

Boone said he hopes it's just a bone bruise and the team will see how Stanton feels when he wakes up Wednesday morning, according to Brendan Kuty of NJ.com.

The four-time All-Star rejoined New York on June 18 following a lengthy stint on the injured list due to a left biceps tear, left shoulder strain, and left calf strain.

Stanton was playing in only his ninth game this season, and he looked primed to contribute for the AL East-leading Yankees. The 2017 NL MVP recorded a home run and seven RBIs over his last two games prior to Tuesday's action.

If Stanton lands on the IL again, the team could call up recently demoted outfielder Clint Frazier. The 24-year-old has posted an .843 OPS in 2019 over 53 games, but he was the odd man out with Stanton and Aaron Judge healthy again, and Edwin Encarnacion coming into the fold after a trade with the Seattle Mariners.
