13) Warriors 106, Raptors 105— Toronto had a 6-point lead and the ball with 3:00 left, but couldn’t finish the job; Game 6 is in Oakland Thursday. Warriors were +6 in 12:00 with Kevin Durant on the floor; seriously doubt he plays again in this series.
Late night update: Warriors think Durant tore his achilles.
12) Dallas Keuchel made his ’19 debut Monday, pitching for Rome in the Class A South Atlantic League; he allowed a single, a walk with nine strikeouts in seven scoreless innings.
11) Braves 13, Pirates 7— Josh Donaldson got drilled by a pitch in the first inning, the ump threw the pitcher out, and a high-scoring game broke out. Marte and Albies both homered twice in this game.
10) Former Auburn, Akron coach Terry Bowden is heading to the Clemson football staff as a 63-year-old graduate assistant; his brother Tommy was Clemson’s head coach for 10 years.
Bowden is going for a Master’s Degree in athletic leadership at Clemson, and his position on the staff is an unpaid graduate internship.
9) Auburn 14, North Carolina 7— Tigers advance to the College World Series; they scored 13 runs in the top of the first inning. Rough way for the season to end for UNC.
8) Wednesday’s Rangers-Red Sox game in Boston moves up from 7:00 to 4:00 because Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final is Wednesday night in Boston.
7) Baseball stuff:
— Pirates put P Jordan Lyles (hamstring) on IL.
— Cardinals put P Adam Wainwright (hamsring) on IL
— Angels’ P Matt Harvey aggravated his back injury on a rehab start.

5) Tony Parker retired after 18 seasons in the NBA; he won four NBA titles with the Spurs.
4) Read online yesterday that El Cortez and Four Queens are last places in Las Vegas that deal low-limit single deck blackjack that still pays 3-2 on naturals. Most single deck games pay 6-5 now.
3) College basketball transfer portal:
— Grad transfer Isaiah Moss bolts from Iowa to Kansas.
— Grad transfer Tevin Mack bolts from Alabama to Clemson.
— F Eugene Omoruyi bolts from Rutgers to Oregon.
2) Arizona 13, Phillies 8— This was seventh time since 1914 that a team led off a game with three straight home runs; last time was in 2017, also the Diamondbacks.
Phillies’ Jerad Eickhoff didn’t allow a HR in any of his first five starts (30 IP); he’s allowed at least one homer in six straight starts (13 HR in last 24 1/3 IP).
1) Field for the College World Series is set:
