The Brunswick High School girls tennis team has a change at the top this year.
Jrue Holiday had a career playoff-high 33 points and the New Orleans Pelicans took a 2-0 lead in their firstround playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers with a 111-102 victory on Tuesday night.

Shohei Ohtani developed a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand nine days ago during his second start for the Los Angeles Angels.
The rookie right-hander thought it had healed enough for him to pitch effectively when he took the mound again Tuesday night in front of a sellout crowd eager to see Ohtani’s next incredible feat.
