  • Matt Harvey misses mandatory workout

    NEW YORK -- Mets ace Matt Harvey missed a mandatory team workout Tuesday at Citi Field. Harvey later apologized to teammates for the unexcused absence, which apparently happened because he lost track of time. "Obviously, today was not the greatest," Harvey said after arriving at Citi Field. "I know we had a mandatory workout. The last thing I ever want to do is not be here with my team. Basically, there's no excuse. I screwed up. I wasn't here. I showed up a little late. I've talked to [general manager] Sandy [Alderson] and I've talked to [manager] Terry [Collins] and my teammates and apologized to them and apologized to everybody. They understand. I'm here to get my workout in and be with the team. "Unfortunately, today I screwed up. There's not really anything else to say. They know what happened. I told everybody and apologized to everybody and told them it's not going to happen again. It's never happened before. Unfortunately, it happened kind of at...

  • Sylvia Fowles fuels Minnesota in Game 2 victory in WNBA Finals

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota center Sylvia Fowles received some presents in the mail the day before her 30th birthday on Tuesday. But she didn't open them early. She waited until Tuesday afternoon when she was relaxing before Game 2 of the WNBA Finals. "I got some flowers from my family," Fowles said. "My little nieces sent me teddy bears because I love those. My sister sent me jewelry, and my mom got me a new phone." But what Fowles wanted most on Tuesday, of course, was to even this series at one game apiece after a loss to Indiana on Sunday. And from the tip-off at Target Center, she looked determined to make that happen. "I just tried to lock in this game and from the start do what I was capable of," Fowles said after the Lynx won 77-71 in what you could call a testy contest with the Fever. Fowles had 21 points, on 10-of-13 shooting from the field, and nine rebounds. She scored the first four points of the game and had 14 in the first half. Especially considering...
