Jason Heyward might be coming out of his season long slump. He was 5 for his last 5 before lining out hard (102.6 mph) to the end the sixth with the lead run at third base against the Dodgers. Heyward has had at least one hit in every game since getting four straight days off. The Cubs and Dodgers have yet to score a run through 6 innings.

Patrick Reed won The Barclays today -- and with it, received a nice perk of qualifying for the U.S. Ryder Cup team. Rickie Fowler wasn't so lucky. He played his final four holes in 3-over, failing to make his way onto the team, as Zach Johnson retained that final spot. U.S. captain Davis Love III will make four wildcard selections in coming weeks.

Asked whether he fears for his safety when he goes on the road, 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick said he didn't think that would be an issue. "(I'm) not really too concerned about that," Kaepernick said. "At the end of the day, if something happens, that's only proving my point."

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick spoke to reporters for nearly 20 minutes today about his decision to sit during the national anthem. During the discussion, Kaepernick touched on times he and friends have been harassed by police, his explanation for how the decision to do this evolved, the presidential election, why he did it alone and whether he fears for his safety on the road. "People don't realize what's really going on in this country," Kaepernick said. "There are a lot things that are going on that are unjust. People aren't being held accountable for. And that's something that needs to change. That's something that this country stands for freedom, liberty and justice for all. And it's not happening for all right now."

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick said he will continue to sit during the national anthem. "I'll continue to sit," Kaepernick said. "I'm going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed. To me this is something that has to change. When there's significant change and I feel like that flag represents what it's supposed to represent, this country is representing people the way that it's supposed to, I'll stand."

Here's what Fowler needs to qualify for the U.S. Ryder Cup team today: Four-way T-2 or better: IN Five-way T-2: OUT Solo 3rd: IN Two-way T-3 or worse: OUT

That's 3 HR for Josh Donaldson today. Assuming the Blue Jays go on to win, they'll be 19-2 since May in games Donaldson homers. That'll work!
