In NYC on July 23, the WNBA's Chicago Sky (21-7) lost to the New York Liberty (10-17) 83-80 at the Barclays Center.

Chicago only had 14 points at the end of the first quarter (on a season-worst 33.3% shooting), although the Liberty only had 17.

Candace Parker led the Sky with 21 points. Also, Chicago's Azura Stevens reached 500 career rebounds and Kahleah Copper reached 2,000 career points.

Next, the Sky will play the Las Vegas Aces at home in the 2022 Commissioner's Cup Championship on Tuesday, July 26. The tipoff at Wintrust Arena is at 7:30 p.m. CT and will air exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

—In Philadelphia, the Chicago Cubs (37-57) defeated the Phillies (49-45) in 10 innings on July 23.

Nico Hoerner homered early and scored the tiebreaking run in a five-run 10th inning, ESPN noted.

The Phillies' Nick Castellanos was booed by many in the crowd of 38,542 during another rough night at the plate. The outfielder signed a $100 million, five-year contract in the offseason after batting .309 with 34 homers and 100 RBI last season for Cincinnati.

The teams' finale will take place Sunday, July 24.

—The Chicago White Sox (47-48) split a doubleheader with the visiting Cleveland Guardians (48-45), losing the opener 7-4 before winning the nightcap 5-4.

Eloy Jimenez homered and Yoan Moncada drove in two runs as Chicago improved to 9-9 in a stretch of 19 straight games against AL Central opponents, according to ESPN. The South Siders won the division last year, but they are going to need a strong second half to secure a third straight postseason appearance.

They will conclude their series Sunday, July 24, with Dylan Cease as the starting pitcher for the White Sox.

—Minnie Minoso's journey from Cuba to Cooperstown, New York, becomes official Sunday, July 24, when the Chicago White Sox legend joins the Hall of Fame, The Chicago Tribune noted.

"He was a Hall of Fame person off the field and in the community, especially at home," his son Charlie Rice-Minoso told the Tribune during a phone interview from Cooperstown. "He just had the biggest heart. I know it would have meant the world to him to be here in Cooperstown himself and to be on that stage."

Minoso, nicknamed the "Cuban Comet," spent parts of 12 seasons with the Sox and was the first Black player for the team in 1951. He quickly emerged as one of the game's first Afro-Latino stars.

Minoso was a nine-time All-Star and won three Gold Glove Awards as an outfielder during 17 seasons with Cleveland, the White Sox, St. Louis Cardinals and Washington Senators. Before that, he was an All-Star in two of his three Negro Leagues seasons with the New York Cubans and was part of a championship team in 1947.

He passed away in 2015 at age 90.
