MLB:
Houston 3, Detroit 0 – Astros lefty Dallas Keuchel didn't make the American League All-Star team, but hitting the break with a full head of steam isn't a bad consolation prize.
Keuchel continued his resurgence by throwing six frames, while Alex Bregman smacked a two-run homer in the first inning to send the Astros to a 3-0 win over the Tigers on Friday night at Minute Maid Park.
Cleveland 6, Yankees 5 – After rookie right-hander Shane Bieber allowed three runs to the Yankees in the fifth inning on Friday night at Progressive Field, Indians fans grew wary as All-Star slugger Aaron Judge stepped to the plate looking to give New York its first lead of the night.
With a runner on second, Judge sent a hanging slider 370 feet to center field, where it was tracked down by Greg Allen to quiet the collective gasp of the sellout crowd. The putout ended Bieber's 25-pitch inning and shut the door on New York's biggest scoring threat of the night, helping the Tribe secure a 6-5 win.
White Sox 9, Kansas City 6 – Jose Abreu was in a slump entering the White Sox 9-6 victory over the Royals on Friday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. Not a rough four or five games for the American League All-Star starter at first base. Try an uncharacteristic 28-for-161 stretch dating to May 27 for the career .295 hitter. But the hard-working Abreu started to get back in the groove, slowly but surely, with two hits in the White Sox second straight victory.
Cubs 5, San Diego 4 10 innings Javier Baez did it again.
With one out in the 10th inning, Baez stole second, then took advantage of two errors by the Padres to score the go-ahead run and lift the Cubs to a 5-4 victory over the Padres on Friday night at Petco Park.

*TENNIS*
Serena Williams' going for her eighth Wimbledon title...against 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber of Germany on Center Court. ...She says of Kerber... I think grass is her best surface. She plays so well here and she knows how to play on this court and she does it well. And this is her second final in three years, is that right, so that's wildly impressive. If victorious...Serena will be one short of Martina Navratilova's all time title record 'here.' ...at the 'All England Club'.
