    Mets mulling over bullpen decisions as postseason nears
    ATLANTA — In the midst of the most important week of the regular season, the Mets have also been evaluating players for postseason roles. At the start of the week, the biggest questions were about which relievers they would take and what they would do with the DH spot. Those questions still have not been answered.
    David Peterson and Drew Smith pitched well this week, but Tylor Megill wasn’t as strong. Peterson, Megill and Trevor Williams all have value as pitchers who have been stret

    Braves finish sweep of Mets, add to division lead
    ATLANTA — It was the biggest moment of the season and the Mets failed to meet it.
    When the Mets landed in Atlanta, they had a one-game lead on the Braves in the NL East. They left two games back after a sweep at the hands of their division rivals. They fell 5-3 on Sunday night in the series finale at Truist Park, capping a disappointing weekend that may have sealed their fate as a wild card team.
    If this was a litmus test to see how the Mets (98-61) stack up next to the defending World Ser

    PORTLAND, Ore. — Dénis Bouanga scored his first Major League Soccer goal in stoppage time and LAFC clinched the Supporters Shield with a 2-1 victory over the Portland Timbers on Sunday.
    LAFC (21-8-4) had already earned the top seed in the playoffs and a first-round bye with the best record in the league. It is LAFC’s second Supporters Shield in four years.

    Special to the Laguna Woods Globe
    I love ethnic food. Italian/Mediterranean is my favorite, and next would be Asian.
    If you know me, you know the only reading I do is cookbooks. I love to read about the why and the how of cooking. I watch cooking shows, listen to podcasts and generally like anything to do with foods and restaurants. That is what captures my interest.
    My friend Steve introduced me to beef bulgogi, which is a Korean dish. This is his recipe, modified a little by me.

    Finding the humor in everyday life can be far from ‘dull and boring’
    In a curious turn of events, a woman who lived near Dull, Scotland, was on a bike tour in the United States. They passed through Boring, Oregon. When she returned home, she initiated the move that made them sister cities. Dull and Boring!
    We do not have to be funny, joking people to see the humor in everyday life if we are open to it. Appropriate humor can turn around a difficult or tricky situation, release anxiety and tension, and lift our spirits.

    QBs Daniel Jones, Tyrod Taylor both hurt in injury-filled 20-12 Giants win over Bears
    The Giants have three wins after four games. Now they have to make sure they have a healthy quarterback to face the Green Bay Packers in London next Sunday.
    Daniel Jones scampered for two rushing touchdowns, and the Giants ran for 262 yards in Sunday’s 20-12 win over the Chicago Bears behind Saquon Barkley’s 146 on a career-high 31 carries.
    But Jones (left ankle) and backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor (concussion) both sustained significant injuries that forced head coach Brian Daboll t

    When New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones faked a handoff to Saquon Barkley in the first quarter Sunday at MetLife Stadium and then spun to his left, a clear 21-yard lane to the end zone lay before Jones.
    With Chicago Bears defenders Trevis Gipson, Jaquan Brisker and Dominique Robinson in chase mode, Jones picked up speed. Cornerback Kyler Gordon was unable to shake tight end Tanner Hudson’s block near the goal line, and Jones squeaked into the corner of the end zone behind Hudson for

    Mike Preston: Forget analytics. Ravens coach John Harbaugh was wrong to go for it on fourth down vs. Bills. | COMMENTARY
    The Ravens have the most prolific kicker in the history of the National Football League and still sometimes refuse to use him in possible game-winning situations.
    We’ve seen this before. Twice, in fact, just last season in losses to the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, setbacks that helped the Ravens lose six straight seasons to fall from the top seed in the AFC to out of playoff contention altogether.
    Then came Sunday.

    ARCADIA — Bob Baffert won three Breeders’ Cup prep races at Santa Anita over the weekend, but he might be sending only one of the three winners to the World Championships at Keeneland on Nov. 4-5.
    The Hall of Fame trainer won two stakes Sunday at Santa Anita, saddling Midnight Memories for a victory in the $200,000 Grade II Zenyatta Stakes and coming back one race later to take the $100,000 Speakeasy Stakes with Speed Boat Beach.

    The Ravens have trailed for just 14 seconds of the 120 minutes they’ve played in Baltimore this season, but from that portrait of apparent superiority there emerges only stark realities: a historic collapse in their home opener, a second-half flop Sunday against the Super Bowl favorites, two would-be wins spoiled by defensive miscommunications and offensive breakdowns and generally bad vibes.
    The Ravens never trailed in their 23-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills, not until kicker Tyler Bass kno

    The Ravens’ 23-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon will be remembered for many things. But Baltimore’s decision to forgo a chip-shot field goal that would’ve broken a 20-20 tie and instead go for it on fourth-and-goal at the 2-yard line with 4:45 remaining left many at M&T Bank Stadium scratching their heads.

    Chicago Cubs players and coaches gathered along the foul line near third base, clapping in unison while “Go Cubs Go” blared across Wrigley Field for the final time this year.
    The celebration after an 8-1 win Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds continued the team’s postgame tradition throughout the season, a sing-along to the song synonymous with home victories.

    At the end of an ugly performance on a gloomy New Jersey afternoon, the Chicago Bears found themselves pulling together for one last eyes-closed, fingers-crossed, full-prayers miracle.
    Only 8 seconds remained Sunday and the Bears were 67 yards from MetLife Stadium’s north end zone, the landmark for a potential last-gasp touchdown that could have maybe, possibly, by chance set up a game-tying 2-point conversion attempt. A whole ton of wildness had to happen to extend the game. But the Bears

    HOUSTON — In the end, the Houston Texans only really got close to Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert and his fractured rib cartilage once Sunday. They were credited with one sack of Herbert in addition to a handful of mild pressures during the Chargers’ 34-24 victory at NRG Stadium.
    The Chargers slipped rookie offensive lineman Jamaree Salyer into Rashawn Slater’s spot at left tackle and Herbert’s blindside was as well protected as ever. Salyer made his first NFL start a

    “Let’s score a f’ing touchdown,” Jets running back Breece Hall said after the game. “So that was our whole mentality.

    Lamar Jackson rushed 11 times for 73 yards but threw two interceptions while completing 20 of 29 passes for a season-low 144 yards.

    ANAHEIM —The Angels’ forgettable season is ending with a too-little-too-late hot streak.
    Mike Trout hit his 39th homer of the season and Trout, Livan Soto and Taylor Ward each had three hits as the Angels beat the Texas Rangers, 8-3, on Sunday afternoon.
    The Angels have won seven in a row for the first time since April 2018. With three games to play, the Angels (73-86) have also ensured they will avoid their first 90-loss season since 1999.

    His thoughts are certainly more with Tagovailoa’s personal health than how quickly he can get game ready.

    That was a bummer of a finale.
    Not only did Aaron Judge not make history in the final regular season home game in the Bronx in a 3-1 loss to the Orioles, but the Bombers might have lost reliever Ron Marinaccio in the process.
    The Yankees lost the three-game series to the Orioles and finished the regular season at the Stadium 57-24.
