  • After the Pirates’ 5-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday, Ivan Nova kept talking about the baseball that got away from him.
  • Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon is so determined to make his next start he’ll try anything to heal the cut on the middle finger of his pitching hand.
  • The assignment for Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris in his first start this postseason was easy to explain but nearly impossible to execute.
  • Chuck Knox, the Sewickley native and former NFL coach who took the Los Angeles Rams to three consecutive NFC championship games and also led the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills, died. He was 86.
  • The Washington Capitals scored in the opening minute of the game and twice in the last 1:02 of the second period to pull away to a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night and a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference final.
