After having met the Scottish side in pre-season, manager Luis Enrique is expecting a similar performance from the Bhoys. Deyverson beat Cillessen from close range to hand Alaves a surprise lead before half-time, but Jeremy Mathieu brought Barca back into the game when he headed home Neymar's corner a minute into the second-half.
Opening the second period with a two-man advantage, thanks to a too-many-men-on-the-ice call against Canada and an interference call against defenceman Drew Doughty, Team USA struck nearly immediately when defenceman John Carlson blasted a shot past Holtby.

The game ended moments later on Kris Bryant's popout. The 32-year-old Lester threw a no-hitter on May 19, 2008, for Boston against Kansas City.

Truex moved past leader Newman on Lap 339 to take the lead and stayed in front on a final restart to win another of what was once considered one of NASCAR's most-prized races.

The 37-year-old Chicagoan entered the cage vs. 24-year-old Mickey Gall . Punk almost got free, but Gall clearly held the upper hand leaving his opponent with no choice but to tap his hand on the mat, ending the fight the way many inside UFC predicted.
Pitching in Sunday's second inning against the Mariners, Shoemaker was struck in the right side of the head by a 105-mph line drive off the bat of Seattle's Kyle Seager at Safeco Field. Amazingly, Shoemaker didn't lose consciousness after taking the hit. When Seager reached first base he just stared at the fallen Shoemaker. The Angels were able to share on Twitter Shoemaker was awake and talking and did not appear to be concussed or other wise injured.
