Aaron Judge seems like he is back. Judge hit an opposite field two-run homer off the Twins' Bartolo Colon that just sneaked inside the right field foul pole. It gave him 45 homers and 100 RBIs. A moment later, Gary Sanchez went deep to tie the game. Sanchez has 32 homers and he missed the first month of the season.

New Jets CEO Christopher Johnson spoke to the media for the first time since taking over the team from his older brother, Woody, the new U.S. ambassador to the U.K. Biggest takeaways: Johnson said he doesn't consult with Woody on any football matters. He said he will decide the fates of coach Todd Bowles and GM Mike Maccagnan. He said, "We definitely are not tanking." Johnson is excited about the future, yet realistic about the present. He struck the right balance. It was an impressive media debut.

Can the Twins hold off the Angels?

The Yankees are all but locked into a wild-card spot, while the Twins have a significant advantage over the Angels despite losing four of five. The Rangers' two-game win streak is probably too little, too late, while losing streaks by the Mariners (four games) and Royals (three) have just about sunk them.

Why NFL's first London game was a messy success

It has been 10 years since the NFL staged its first regular-season game in London, a sloppy, soggy contest -- Eli Manning calls it a "mud-fest" -- with a historical significance that far outweighed the quality of play.

Jarrett Jack has been one of more than 15 Knicks working out and scrimmaging at the team's training facility in Tarrytown. Carmelo Anthony has been training at his gym in the Sky Building in Manhattan but hasn't been working out at the facility, which is somewhat noteworthy but not all that surprising since the Knicks and Anthony aren't on great terms (the club wants to trade Anthony; Anthony wants to be traded). Other Knicks players have been to Carmelo's gym for pickup and members of the organization, including Steve Mills and Jeff Hornacek, have attended workouts.

Veteran point guard Jarrett Jack says he's 100 percent healthy after he was limited to two games last season due to a right knee injury. He's been working out at the Knicks training facility with rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina and others. "Really long arms, really active defensively," Jack said of Ntilikina, who has a 7-0 wingspan. "Great size. Just looking forward to giving him all the game that I've gotten over these 13 years… He has a great pace to him. He's crafty, definitely going to cause a lot of problems on the defensive end which in turn can hopefully lead to some easy buckets on offense."
