A’s Clinch Playoff Berth With Win Over Giants, Mariners loss

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — An AL West title will mean so much more than simply clinching a playoff berth given how the past two seasons have gone for the Oakland Athletics. Then, the A’s might let loose and celebrate a little. But not just yet. They secured a third straight playoff berth with Seattle’s loss to San Diego and a 6-0 win against the San Francisco Giants on Friday night, highlighted by Matt Olson’s three-run homer. “Clinching the playoffs is the goal every single year. Exciting, but winn...

Beyond Fest, which bills itself as the most-attended genre film festival in the nation, will take place as scheduled this year. Though instead of indoor cinemas, all of the movies will be screened at the Mission Tiki Drive-In in Montclair, organizers announced Friday. And really, given the mix of horror, suspense and similar fare, what better place to watch this mix of world or U.S. premieres and retrospectives of classically creepy films than the drive-in? “We covet the theatrical experience ab...

Alexander Zverev erases 2-set hole, will face Dominic Thiem in U.S. Open men’s final

NEW YORK (AP) -— For two full sets, Alexander Zverev was confused and listless, his body language as poor as his winner-to-error ratio against Pablo Carreño Busta in the U.S. Open men’s semifinals Friday. Zverev double-faulted and smacked his left high. He put a backhand into the net to cede the opening set and covered his face with both hands. He netted a forehand early in the next set, then turned a forlorn face toward his guest box and put his palms up. When he pushed a backhand long after 1 ...

Smoke From Nearby Wildfires Creates Eerie Bay Area Baseball Scene

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Coliseum lights shone brightly for miles through a sunless, smoky sky in the middle of the afternoon — hours before they usually would be on for a night baseball game. By mid-morning across San Francisco Bay, the Giants’ Oracle Park resembled a black-and-orange horror scene. A number of Northern California wildfires sent a thick, sometimes orange-glowing haze over the area Wednesday that left the Bay Area in an eerie darkness all day. The sun was blocked by the...

Unprecedented smoke layer darkens Bay Area skies as massive wildfires burn

Smoke from massive wildfires burning throughout the western United States blotted out the sun across the Bay Area and much of Northern California on Wednesday morning, casting skies in an orange glow that seemed like the stuff of science fiction and scrambling weather forecasts that couldn’t account for the unprecedented blanket over the atmosphere.
