Piro Pleads For Patience At Juventus

Andrea Pirlo described Federico Chiesa as “naive” after he was sent off on his debut in Saturday’s 1-1 Serie A draw against Crotone. Chiesa, who joined the champions on loan from Fiorentina on transfer deadline day, saw red on the hour mark for a late challenge on Luca Cigarini.

Ibrahimovic Stars In Milan Derby

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice in three minutes as in-form AC Milan beat rivals Inter Milan to maintain their winning start to the Serie A season. The 39-year-old tapped in to open the scoring after Samir Handanovic saved his penalty and made it two moments later from Rafael Leao’s smart cross. Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for Inter before the half-hour mark and was denied a penalty in the second half. AC Milan held on to make it four wins from four and stay top of the table. Some 1,000 fans w...

Dodgers strike early, hold on to force Game 7 in NLCS

ARLINGTON, Texas — Apparently, it’s not over until they say it is. Others said it was after the Dodgers lost the first two games of this National League Championship Series or when they were pushed to the brink of elimination after Game 4. But the Dodgers have forced this NLCS to the limit. Corey Seager homered (again). Walker Buehler behaved like a big-game pitcher (again). Mookie Betts made the play of the day (yes, again) and the Dodgers white-knuckled their way through the final three inning...

Even earlier, in February 2016, political science professor Helmut Norpoth assessed that Trump had a 97 percent chance of defeating Clinton. Lichtman, of American University in Washington, D.C., is the co-developer of a model called the “13 Keys to the White House.” It evolved from a dinner conv...

Rams, 49ers settle their differences while seeing similarities

Any game between the Rams and the San Francisco 49ers arrives with an air of importance, of intrigue, of sometimes-bitter rivalry. On a Rams-49ers battlefield, a sense of empathy is less common. But if it ever were to come up, it would be Sunday night at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara when the teams renew a series that has been fought twice a season since 1950.
