In what was openly lesbian WNBA legend Sue Bird's final regular-season game against the Chicago Sky (25-9), things certainly were memorable for her and the Seattle Storm (21-13).

The Storm defeated the Sky 111-100 at Wintrust Arena on Aug. 9 in what was Chicago's last regular-season home game.

Bird, whose partner is soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe, is retiring after this season.

Courtney Vandersloot led Chicago with 28 points and had seven assists; Candace Parker led the team in rebounds, with nine. Seattle set a WNBA record with 37 assists.

The Sky will head to Las Vegas to play the Aces on Thursday, Aug. 11. The tip-off at Michelob ULTRA Arena is scheduled for 9 p.m. CT and will air on NBA TV, MYLVTV, CW 26 and NBA TV Canada.

—Joey Meneses hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning, Keibert Ruiz went deep twice and the Washington Nationals (37-75) regrouped after blowing a three-run lead, beating the Chicago Cubs (44-65) 6-5 on Aug. 9 at Wrigley Field to snap a six-game losing streak, ESPN noted.

In related news, the Cubs remain unsure if RHP Kyle Hendricks (strained right shoulder) will pitch again this season. Though an MRI showed improvement, manager David Ross said there is still inflammation. Hendricks has not been throwing and will be reassessed in about a week.

The series concludes Wed., Aug. 10.

—The Chicago White Sox (56-54) split a doubleheader with the host Kansas City Royals (45-66) on Aug. 9, losing the first game 4-2 before taking the nightcap 3-2.

All-Star shortstop Tim Anderson is expected to miss six weeks with a tear in the middle finger of his left hand, according to ESPN. He will have surgery on Thursday, Aug. 11, in Chicago.

The White Sox and Royals will continue their four-game series on Wed., Aug. 18.
