Serena tries for 24th Grand Slam title…Doubleheader for Cubs at Nationals…Ohtani wants to keep hitting

NEW YORK (AP) — Serena Williams tries to win her seventh U.S. Open championship and 24th Grand Slam singles title when she faces 20th-seeded Naomi Osaka in the women’s final today. Osaka is making her debut in a major final at age 20, and says that Williams, who turns 37 this month, is her idol.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Cubs and the Nationals have a doubleheader today in Washington. Their game last night was postponed after two rain delays totaling more than four hours. It was scoreless in the top of the second inning when it was called. The rain spoiled the return of Washington pitcher Joe Ross, who was making his first major league start since undergoing Tommy John surgery in July of 2017. The 25-year-old Ross allowed a hit, hit a batter and had a strikeout. Jon Lester tossed a scoreless first inning for Chicago, giving up one hit.

CHICAGO (AP) — Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani (SHOH’-hay oh-TAH’-nee) says he plans to finish this season as the team’s designated hitter, despite his doctors’ recommendation that he have Tommy John surgery on his right pitching elbow. The 24-year-old rookie sensation has 19 home runs, including three in his past four games. He says he’ll decide after the season whether to have surgery that would keep him off the mound until 2020.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — David Hess is set to start for the Orioles at Tampa Bay, a day after he was hit in the eye while playing catch with a football at Tropicana Field. It’s a normal sight across the majors to see pitchers doing running work involving football passes before batting practice. A specialist examined Hess’ left eye, and he returned to the Baltimore dugout last night — wearing an LSU football helmet.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Gio Gonzalez is set to make his first start with the Brewers tonight in Milwaukee against the Giants. The left-hander was acquired from the Nationals a week ago. He had lost three of his final four starts with Washington while posting an 8.71 ERA, but Milwaukee is hoping he can help the team’s postseason push.
