CLEVELAND (AP) — Trevor Bauer was pulled by manager Terry Francona after seven hitless innings and 117 pitches, and watched from the dugout as Toronto’s Freddy Galvis broke up Cleveland’s bid for a combined no-hitter with a leadoff single in the ninth inning of the Indians’ 4-1 win Thursday night.Bauer was attempting to throw Cleveland’s first no-hitter in 38 years — on the 25th anniversary of Progressive Field’s opening — but was taken out as his pitch count increased.“It was the right decision,” Bauer said.Jon Edwards got two outs in the eighth before closer Brad Hand worked out of a bases-loaded jam. Hand, however, gave up a hard single to center by Galvis. Alen Hansen followed with Toronto’s second hit and the Blue Jays scored before Hand struck out two for his third save.Bauer (1-0) walked six and struck out eight. The Indians haven’t pitched a no-hitter since Len Barker’s perfect game against Toronto in 1981.Aaron Sanchez (1-1) took the loss. This was the third time this season the Blue Jays were held hitless into the seventh inning.TweetPinShare0 Shares

(iStock) Office landlords in New York, Chicago and San Francisco could be taking a hit in the next few years even if some companies lock in long-term leases.More companies are keeping their offices, but are downsizing those spaces to allow employees to work remotely part-time, according to data from VTS, first reported by the Wall Street Journal.The analysis shows that landlords are giving tenants discounts of up to 13 percent compared to rents in the first quarter of 2020. Firms are also looking at an average of about 10 percent less space than they were looking at in the first quarter of 2020.Even as more people are getting the Covid-19 vaccine, many employees are reluctant to return to the office. The U.S. office vacancy rate rose to 11.9 percent in the first quarter, according to the report, which cited data from CoStar.ADVERTISEMENTLandlords are willing to offer rent breaks to prevent vacancies from rising, but these rent discounts could lead to lower valuations of office buildings in major cities.One positive sign for office owners: Companies are still looking to secure long-term leases.Over 45 percent of the tenants negotiating with landlords are seeking to make commitments of at least seven years. That’s up from 34 percent in 2019, according to the report.[WSJ] — Keith Larsen Share via Shortlink Tags Commercial Real EstateManhattanoffice market

BROWN (Photo credit should read FREDERIC J. BROWN/AFP/Getty Images)AdvertisementAhead of the five-match Test Series against hosts England, Ishant Sharma believes that the current Indian pace attack has the ability to lead the visitors to a series win against Joe Root-led England.The right-arm pacer thinks that the Indian team currently has a pool of eight to nine fast bowlers who are a complete package for Test Cricket.In an interview to the Daily Telegraph, Ishant said: “Everybody used to say that India can’t produce fast bowlers. Now we have probably eight to nine good fast bowlers any time, who can play Test cricket for India.”Ishant also said that unlike the subcontinent, the English conditions are very much favorable for pace bowling as the bowlers can bowl longer spells.Since 2007, India has failed to win a test series in England as they last triumphed 1-0 in a three-match series led by Rahul Dravid. But for now, India’s Test squad pace attack for the series starting August 1 at Edgbaston, Birmingham seems very focused to win.
