Hamels, the 2008 NLCS David Johnson Authentic Jersey and World Series MVP for the Phillies, faced the Yankees聽10 days ago, giving up two runs in seven innings of work, leading the Rangers to a 6-4 victory.
He聽returned to the mound Sunday, but with less success. He gave five runs in 6.1 innings of work in the Rangers’ 5-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals.
In 2013, Empire State voters approved a referendum that allowed casino expansion, including the right for four new casinos to offer sports betting.
The New York Gaming Commission is reviewing how the court decision could affect the state, and it would still need to license the four casinos before they can take sports bets.

The mayor wouldn’t have much say in the decision to bring sports betting to the city, but he could try to use political influence if he wants to oppose betting.
One thing to watch on the Aaron Rodgers contract negotiations is how much control he will have built into the deal. I discussed here. https://t.co/bGA1VLZlLU
Every extension signed by a prominent quarterback sets the standard for the next high-profile deal.

For example, the five-year, $110 million聽contract聽signed by Rodgers in 2013 no longer appears so massive compared to the five-year, $150 million聽deal聽inked by the Atlanta Falcons’ Matt Ryan in early May. Rodgers received $54 million guaranteed, Ryan got $94.5 million guaranteed.
The problem for the 34-year-old former Brett Favre protege is limited leverage. Not only is he under contract for two more years under the terms of the previous agreement, Green Bay could also use the franchise tag after that deal runs out, if necessary.
So it could be difficult for Rodgers to set the new high watermark for quarterback contracts while also receiving unprecedented control to opt out in the future and get even more guaranteed cash.
Both sides have expressed optimism about coming to terms, though.
