SPORTS BRIEFING

Old-Timers blank Niles

COLUMBIANA — The Chester Old-Timers men’s 50-lus baseball team knocked off Niles 3-0 on Sunday at Firestone Park.

The team is 10-1 and hosts Girard at 2 p.m. on Sunday at Firestone Park.

Dave Smith had six shutout innings for the winners. Bill Sattler had the save. Smith and Doug Comm had two hits each.

Pirates to trade All-Star

The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to trade All-Star second baseman Adam Frazier to the playoff-contending San Diego Padres for three minor leaguers, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because the deal had not been announced. The trade is pending physicals. Pittsburgh is sending approximately $1.4 million to the Padres in the deal.

Frazier was the National League starter in the All-Star Game this month. He leads the majors with 125 hits and is batting .324. He’ll join a potent Padres infield that includes Fernando Tatis Jr., Manny Machado and Eric Hosmer.

Pittsburgh is receiving infielder Tucupita Marcano, outfielder Jack Suwinski and right-hander Michell Miliano in the swap. The MLB trade deadline is this Friday.

Masks off

The faces of victory will be a bit more visible for the rest of the Tokyo Olympics.

On Sunday, the International Olympic Committee relaxed its health rules and said medalists can remove their masks on the podium for photos — for 30 seconds. This, says the IOC, acknowledges “a unique moment in their sporting career.”
