Harper pulled for not hustling, Nats fall to Cards (Yahoo Sports)
- Bryce Harper hit the ball to the mound, jogged to first base and took a right turn to the dugout before getting halfway down the basepath. That would be his final play in the Washington Nationals' 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday. First-year manager Matt Williams will tolerate physical miscues, such as the error that provided St. Louis three unearned runs, but he won't take the nonchalance that the normally aggressive Harper displayed during his sixth-inning jog. That's why he came out of the game,'' Williams said.

Raptors GM Ujiri uses profanity about Nets (Yahoo Sports)
- Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri let loose a profanity about the Brooklyn Nets during a pregame address meant to pump up a group of fans outside Air Canada Centre before Saturday's opening game of the NBA playoffs. Ujiri, the NBA's reigning executive of the year, apologized in a brief news conference at halftime, saying he'd made the ''wrong choice of words'' and was ''just trying to get our fans going.'' Asked if the profanity represented his feelings about the Nets, who have been accused of tanking in order to face Toronto in the first round, Ujiri said: ''You know how I feel. I don't like them, but I apologize.'' Raptors coach Dwane Casey said he had no problem with Ujiri's colorful language. ''It doesn't offend me whatsoever,'' Casey said after the Nets won 94-87 in Game 1.
