Aaron Judge may own the Orioles, but Adam Jones owns the Yankees. The Orioles center fielder blasted a two-run, go-ahead home run off Masahiro Tanaka in the seventh inning to lead the Orioles to a 5-2 win over the Yankees Thursday night. Jones now has 24 career home runs against the Yankees, which often seem to come late in close games.

He exited the game with a runner on first and things further unraveled from there. Chad Green entered and allowed a single and double to score another run and then a two-run single to Trey Mancini to give the Orioles a 5-1 lead. Tanaka was dominant most of the game but ran into trouble in the first when Jones … [Read more...] about Adam Jones takes Masahiro Tanaka deep in five-run seventh inning as Yankees fall to Orioles, 5-2

Galimatias When Macron pressed Le Pen on one of her responses, he said: "Are you talking about Trump and Putin? This is truly 'galimatias'." Even the French were confused about this one, but it means "rigmarole” or “claptrap”. Bêtise If you just watched five minutes of the debate, you'd have heard Macron accusing Le Pen of “bêtise”, a noun meaning stupidity, nonsense, or folly. La grande prêtresse de la peur Perhaps the most eloquent insult of the night was when Macron called Le Pen: "The high priestess of fear". … [Read more...] about The new French words we learned thanks to Macron and Le Pen’s verbal joust
