A somber Magic Johnson implored fans to come together and not let evil and hate stop people from coming to Las Vegas before the Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings tried to entertain fans and take their minds off the shooting that took place here last Sunday.
Game Youth Gerry Cheevers Jersey This is a tough situation for all of us, Johnson, the Lakers team president, said as he addressed the crowd at the T-Mobile Arena on Sunday night before the Lakers-Kings preseason game. We play this game, from Sacramento as well as from Los Angeles, with heavy hearts. … Last Sunday, fifty-eight people lost their lives. Hundreds more were injured. We want to pray for the families who lost a loved one and want to support those families. And we want to also remember that it could have been one of us.
Indians: Encarnacion is day to day, Francona said. He did not expect the slugger to be available off the bench in this one. … Ramirez fouled a ball off his right leg in the fourth. He was checked by a trainer but stayed in the game. … Francona said he had his entire bullpen available after Friday’s 13-inning victory.
Before the game, Girardi said he wasn’t sure if the big right-hander would be available.
Indians: Bauer struck out eight in 6 2/3 innings of two-hit ball during a 4-0 win in the series opener last Thursday. I think he’ll be just fine, Francona said. Josh Tomlin was initially penciled in to start a potential Game 4, but he tossed two hitless innings in relief Friday and was the Game 2 winner.
