Seattle Mariners All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano was suspended 80 games for violating baseball’s joint drug agreement.

The league announced Cano’s suspension http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-johnny-townsend-jersey , a stunning development for the stalwart in the middle of the Mariners’ lineup and a club expected to contend for a postseason spot in the American League. Cano tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic. In a statement released through the players’ association, Cano said, ”This substance was given to me by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment.” He said he didn’t realize it was banned.

Cano is the most prominent player to be busted since Melky Cabrera was suspended in 2012 while leading the National League in hitting. There have been 36 players suspended this year under the minor league drug program and six in addition to Cano under the big league program: Houston pitcher Dean Deetz, Washington catcher Raudy Read, Pittsburgh pitcher Nik Turley, Kansas City outfielder Jorge Bonifacio, Toronto pitcher Thomas Pannone and Minnesota shortstop Jorge Polanco.

BOSTON (AP) – Oakland Athletics outfielder Stephen Piscotty homered in his first at-bat on Tuesday night after returning from the bereavement list and saluted his late mother when he crossed home plate.

Piscotty patted his heart with his right hand in tribute to Gretchen Piscotty , who died May 6 after battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Piscotty, who hadn’t played in a week, drove an 0-2 pitch from Eduardo Rodriguez over the Green Monster in left field. It was his third home run of the season and put Oakland up 3-0.

BASKETBALL

CHICAGO (AP) – Phoenix has won the No. 1 pick in next month’s NBA draft.

It’s the first time the Suns will have the chance to make the first overall selection. The Suns had the right combination of pingpong balls pop up for them at the draft lottery on Tuesday night, a reward of sorts after a season where Phoenix had the NBA’s worst record at 21-61.

Phoenix lost a coin flip for the top pick in 1969 to Milwaukee. The Bucks took Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The Suns took Neal Walk.

Sacramento will pick No. 2 and Atlanta got the No. 3 pick – both of them moving up to get there. The top three spots were determined by the lottery, and then spots 4-14 fell in line of reverse order of record.

The rest of the slots http://www.patriotsauthorizedshop.com/authentic-trent-brown-jersey , in order, went to No. 4 Memphis, No. 5 Dallas, No. 6 Orlando, No. 7 Chicago, No. 8 Cleveland, No. 9 New York, No. 10 Philadelphia, No. 11 Charlotte, No. 12 and No. 13 Los Angeles Clippers, and No. 14 Denver.

The draft is June 21 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – The wife of former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover is facing a domestic violence charge stemming from an altercation with Glover and his mother after he missed the 54-hole cut at The Players Championship.

Krista Glover was arrested Saturday night and taken to the St. John’s County Jail. She was released the next day after posting $2,500 in bonds.

She faces a May 31 court date on misdemeanor charges of domestic violence battery and resisting arrest without violence.

According to the offense report, Glover and his wife were having an altercation after the third round of The Players Championship http://www.billsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-russell-bodine-jersey , where Glover shot 78. The report said that when his mother, Hershey Glover, tried to intervene, Krista Glover began attacking her.

The arresting officer noticed cuts and blood on the arms and clothing of Glover’s mother. Hershey Glover also told the deputy she had been hit in the chest.

Glover confirmed on Twitter there was an altercation.

SOCCER

BERLIN (AP) – Russia has granted entry to the World Cup for a German journalist who exposed systematic doping in Russian athletics, reversing a decision last week that angered German officials.

However, Hajo Seppelt will face questioning if he goes to the tournament, Russian law enforcement said on Tuesday.

German public broadcaster ARD said Seppelt’s visa to report on the World Cup was declared invalid last week on the grounds that he was on a list of people who are ”persona non grata.” Officials including Foreign Minister Heiko Maas publicly pressed Russia to reconsider.

On Tuesday, Maas tweeted: ”Russian side has just informed us that (at)hajoseppelt can enter the country at least for the World Cup. Still pushing for free reporting.”

LeBron James is keeping his thoughts to himself.

Whatever concerns – or confidence – he might harbor about his Cleveland Cavaliers facing a 2-1 first-round Eastern Conference series hole heading into Game 4 at the Indiana Pacers on Sunday were not going to be made available for public consumption.

James decided not to speak to reporters on Saturday.

And he did not have a whole lot to say in the immediate aftermath of Game 3, either, when Indiana erased a 17-point deficit and then held on for a 92-90 victory over the Cavs.

Not only has the four-time MVP and three-time NBA champ never lost an opening NBA postseason series, going 12-0 in the past, he had never even trailed in the first round until this one, when Cleveland dropped Game 1 at home.

Now he is behind again.

”We’ve had some good quarters,” James said Friday Eric Sogard Milwaukee Brewers Jersey , ”and we didn’t have some good quarters.”

Well, that explains a lot.

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue’s synopsis?

”They won a game we should have won,” Lue said. ”That’s what’s disappointing. But we’re not discouraged. We’ve got to get Game 4 – and I’m confident.”

In addition to Cavaliers-Pacers on Sunday, the day’s other NBA games are the Boston Celtics at the Milwaukee Bucks, the Golden State Warriors at the San Antonio Spurs, and the Toronto Raptors at the Washington Wizards.

A look at Sunday’s full slate of NBA playoff games:



CELTICS AT BUCKS

Boston leads 2-1. Game 4, 1 p.m. EDT, ABC

NEED TO KNOW: Good as All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo is, the Bucks are getting major contributions from Khris Middleton, who is giving the Celtics headaches with his mid-range jumper and all-around game. Middleton is averaging 26.3 points in the series, while shooting 62 percent overall, 12 of 19 on 3s. ”For me, it’s about seeing the offense, finding my spots to be aggressive http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-roquan-smith-jersey ,” Middleton said. ”Just playing in rhythm.”

KEEP AN EYE ON: The first quarter. Veteran forward Al Horford hopes the young Celtics can take lessons from their disastrous start in Game 3 , when Boston was outscored 27-12 in the opening period and never recovered. Boston was flat in front of a raucous road crowd, overwhelmed by an energetic Bucks team that received contributions from up and down the roster. ”This is new for our group,” Horford said. ”We’ll look at film and learn from it.”

PRESSURE IS ON: One of the NBA’s best defensive teams in the regular season, the Celtics have been overrun by the Bucks of late. Milwaukee shot 57 percent in each of the last two games, making a franchise playoff-record 16 3s in Game 3.

INJURY UPDATE: It’s unclear whether Bucks C John Henson will be ready after sitting out Game 3 with a bad back. … Celtics G Marcus Smart will see a doctor again next week to determine when he can return to full-contact practice.



WARRIORS AT SPURS

Golden State leads 3-0. Game 4, 3:30 p.m. EDT, ABC

NEED TO KNOW: Spurs coach Gregg Popovich will sit out a second game in the aftermath of his wife’s death. Assistant Ettore Messina coached San Antonio in Game 3 and will again in Game 4. ”You know how important Pop is, not only for us players, but the whole organization and the whole NBA,” Manu Ginobili said. ”We probably are in a better situation emotionally, and hopefully it fuels us. But it’s hard to tell how a team is going to react.”

KEEP AN EYE ON: Ginobili. The 40-year-old could be playing in his last NBA game. Spurs fans serenaded Ginobili in last season’s Western Conference finale, believing it could be his farewell. It wasn’t. Ginobili says he will wait until the offseason to decide whether to return for a 17th season. ”It was super awkward,” Ginobili said. ”I didn’t want to acknowledge it. I didn’t want to ignore it.”

PRESSURE IS ON: Anyone on San Antonio other than LaMarcus Aldridge. The All-Star forward is averaging 22 points in the series Mike Foltynewicz Atlanta Braves Jersey , and has been the team’s only consistent scorer. San Antonio needs someone else to step up.

INJURY UPDATE: Golden State is without Stephen Curry and Kawhi Leonard remains out for San Antonio. Both have knee issues. Leonard missed all but nine regular-season games.



RAPTORS AT WIZARDS

Toronto leads 2-1. Game 4, 6 p.m. EDT, TNT

NEED TO KNOW: As long as all the chippiness and on-court chatter that showed up in Game 3 doesn’t lead to any real fights moving forward, this series could be mainly about the two terrific All-Star backcourts, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry of No. 1 seed Toronto vs. John Wall and Bradley Beal of No. 8 Washington. And each duo has performed much better at home than on the road. Wall and Beal each scored 28 points in a Game 3 win , while the Wizards shot 55.3 percent on field-goal attempts, the third-best playoff showing in franchise history.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Turnovers and bench scoring. Those were two of the Raptors’ strengths in the regular season, but both were huge issues in Game 3, when Toronto’s 19 turnovers led to 28 points for Washington, and the Wizards’ sometimes-unreliable reserve unit outscored their counterparts 35-32. ”We had some turnovers that are just our fault, that we really shouldn’t have – we can’t have,” Toronto reserve Jakob Poeltl said.

PRESSURE IS ON: Otto Porter Jr. As much as the Wizards dominated in a 122-103 victory Friday, they still train in the series and can’t afford to head to Toronto trailing 3-1. So now that Beal has awoken and joined.
