MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve would find herself walking through the aisles at her grocery store this offseason when she would be recognized by a fan. The ensuing conversation would occasionally catch her off guard. Often times instead of congratulations being extended for leading her team to a second straight WNBA finals, the most common question she got was, “What happened?” After steamrolling through the regular season at 27-7 in pursuit of their second straight championship, the Lynx lost to Indiana in the finals.
ATLANTA — The Minnesota Twins are mired in a terrible slump. They won’t have Vance Worley to blame anymore. The Twins dropped their eighth in a row, losing to the Atlanta Braves 8-3 on Wednesday, and immediately demoted Worley to the minors after another dismal outing. The right-hander gave up three homers, including Evan Gattis’ grand slam, and left after just 3 2-3 innings. Worley’s record dropped to 1-5 and his ERA climbed to 7.21. “The ball was coming out of his hand pretty good,” manager Ron Gardenhire said.
