What’s Happening in Sports: June 8, 2022

MLB’s action-packed 15-game slate includes many great matchups including two of the NL’s best concluding their set as Lindor‘s Mets battle Machado‘s Padres.

LaMarcus Aldridge‘s shoulder surgery costing him the rest of 2019-20 and the NFL announcing club facilities would open up to players soon.
