NHL

The NHL Eastern Conference Championship Series continues tonight in Florida. The Lightnings lead the Rangers 3-2.

NBA

In the NBA championship series last night, the Warriors defeated the Celtics 107-97. That series is tied 2-2 and continues Monday in Oakland.

MLB

Elvin Rodriguez struggled as the Tigers suffered an ugly 10-1 loss to the Blue Jays last night. Rodríguez was tagged for eight runs before leaving in the fifth inning.

After the game, Rodríguez was optioned back to Triple-A Toledo. Team officials expect pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez to be ready to return from the disabled list to fill that spot in the rotation next week.

The Tigers host the Blue Jays again this afternoon. Beau Brieske will pitch against Kevin Gausman. Coverage will begin at 3:50 on 99.3 The Lift.

Detroit will finish the season without pitcher Casey Mize. After a setback in his rehab from an elbow problem, the prized prospect will undergo Tommy John ligament replacement surgery. Typical recovery time is 12 to 18 months.

The Brewers lost their seventh straight game last night, 11-5 to the Nationals. Aaron Ashby pitched into the fifth, allowing six runs on 13 hits. Jace Peterson homered.

The Brewers visit the Nationals again this afternoon. Eric Lauer will start against Patrick Corbin.

Milwaukee will be without starter Brandon Woodruff for longer than expected. While rehabbing a sprained ankle, Woodruff began to experience numbness in his throwing hand. The diagnosis is Raynaud’s syndrome, which reduces blood flow to the extremities. A treatment regimen is being designed.
