In one of the nation’s most fiercely contested electoral battles, Missouri attorney general Josh Hawley, a Republican, has defeated Sen. Claire McCaskill, the Democratic incumbent. President Trump concluded his own push for Republican candidates with a rally for Hawley on Monday night.Republicans had long coveted McCaskill’s seat, which she successfully defended in 2012 by defeating Rep. Todd Akin, who infamously mused about “legitimate rape.” But Missouri has increasingly turned Republican, voting for Trump by a wide margin in 2016.

By Susan Slusser Updated 8:23 pm PDT, Monday, July 23, 2018 ARLINGTON, Texas - Scorching weather in Texas did not slow the A’s at all Monday. Oakland resumed its power-happy ways in a 15-3 victory over the Rangers, but one of the practitioners may surprise you: catcher Jonathan Lucroy smacked his second homer of the season, and it was a grand slam in the second inning off Cole Hamels. Stephen Piscotty banged a two-run shot in the fifth against Hamels, who allowed nine hits, two walks and seven runs in five innings, with several scouts from contending teams on hand to watch him. Matt Chapman hit a three-run blast in the seventh and Khris Davis added a solo shot in the eighth, Oakland’s major-league best 89th homer on the road, compared to 46 at home. By the end of the night, the Rangers went to outfielder Carlos Tocci to pitch, then outfielder Ryan Rua. The A’s moved a season-high 15 games over .500, their best record since Sept. 23, 2014. They’ve … [Read more...] about Homers galore as red-hot A’s crush Texas 15-3
