RIO DE JANEIRO -- Elevators are made for awkward moments.Just ask Andrew Bogut, after he crossed paths with social media foe Liz Cambage in the Australian Olympic team complex in Rio.The basketball stars have been in the headlines after locking horns on Twitter.Cambage said last week she would confront Bogut and ask him what the issue was if they bumped into each other in the village.And thats exactly what happened.I was getting ice, she was coming from the laundry, and we ended up in the lobby together - just us, Bogut said.I was about to square up because I didnt know where it was going with Lizzy.I was hoping she wasnt going to swing at me, but the arm was coming around for a hug.She gave me a massive hug and we just laughed about it.Bogut insisted there were no hard feelings between the pair, who both begin their Olympic campaigns on Saturday.Im a firm believer that anyone should give their opinion instead of the PC crap. At least you know what youre going to get.The NBA star centre also caused a stir earlier in the week when he poked fun at the quality of the athletes village, especially the lack of shower curtains and size of beds.Bogut, who now has an extended bed and extra pillows, said he wasnt having a dig at Brazil or organisers.Im a sarcastic guy that likes to joke around and some people took it the wrong way, he said.I look at myself as an honest guy, Im going to tell it like it is.

.J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. SAN DIEGO -- Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez made sure the Kansas City Royals will start at home, sweet home if they get a chance to defend their World Series title.The Royals duo homered off former Kansas City teammate Johnny Cueto during a six-pitch span in the second inning of Tuesdays All-Star Game. Hosmer added an RBI single to become the contests MVP. And the American League beat the National League 4-2 for its fourth straight win in the Midsummer Classic.David Ortiz found himself in the middle of the most touching moment at Petco Park, embraced by his AL teammates near first base after exiting his final All-Star Game. The popular Big Papi plans to retire at 40 after this season with the?Boston Red Sox.Kris Bryant of the?Chicago Cubs?led the parade of sparkling young talent with a first-inning home run. Dellin Betances flashed his 100 mph heat. And?Houston Astros?reliever Will Harris came on to throw a called third strike past?St. Louis Cardinals?rookie Aledmys Diaz on a 3-2 pitch on the outside corner with the bases loaded to end the eighth.Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera pitched a hitless sixth for the AL, which will open the World Series at home for the 11th time in 14 years since the All-Star winner was used to determine the hosts for Games 1 and 2.Kansas City became baseball royalty last fall, bursting to a 2-0 lead over the New York Mets at Kauffman Stadium, where Cueto pitched a two-hitter in the second game. The Royals won in five games for their first title since 1985.This season, Kansas City is languishing at 45-43, seven games off the AL Central lead and in the middle of the wild-card race as attention turns to which teams will be buyers and sellers as the Aug. 1 trade deadline approaches.The?Cleveland Indians?Corey Kluber pitched a 1-2-3 second inning for the win, and Zach Britton got the save for the AL, which cut its All-Star Game deficit to 43-42, with two ties.Ortiz, Bostons beloved designated hitter, wore spikes with gold-colored bottoms and matching batting gloves to mark his 10th All-Star selection and delivered the AL batting order to umpires at home plate.Ortiz hit a smash down the first-base line that Anthony Rizzo snagged to rob him of a potential RBI double in the first inning and walked against Jose Fernandez in the third.When Edwin Encarnacion came out to pinch run for him, Ortiz waved to the crowd, then his AL teammates came out of the dugout to exchange hugs as the crowd of 42,386 rose in tribute.I was supposed to hit a home run in my second at-bat. My boy [Fernandez] told me he was going to throw me a fastball, and the first pitch was a changeup, Ortiz said.Then 3-2, he threw me a slider, and Im like, Are you trying to break my back? But he said it was the catchers fault.Fernandez admitted of facing Ortiz, I couldnt believe that I was actually pitching to him. We both looked at each other and smiled.The 23-year-old Miami Marlins ace said, He signed the jersey I brought for him.Ortiz delivered a pregame speech to his mates.You dont get here with a good name or a good family, Ortiz said. You have to put up the numbers. I told them that they have to do that for their whole career.The Alll-Star Game returned to San Diego for the first time since 1992 at Jack Murphy Stadium.dddddddddddd Just before this first pitch, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred joined Rod Carew, his family and the family of late Padres great Tony Gwynn and named the batting titles after the two Hall of Famers, giving Gwynn the NL honor and Carew the AL championship.Gwynn died of salivary gland cancer two years ago at age 54.Sailors dressed in white lined the foul lines and outfield warning tracks for the national anthems. The Tenors, a British Columbia-based group, changed an O Canada lyric to Were all brothers and sisters. All lives matter to the great, and one held up a sign reading All Lives Matter.Randy Jones threw out the ceremonial first pitch and former Padres All-Star closer Trevor Hoffman helped open, bringing the game ball to the mound from the bullpen accompanied by AC/DCs Hells Bells.With an NL ballpark hosting for the second year in a row in what will be a streak of at least four (counting upcoming All-Star Games in Miami and Washington, D.C.), the AL wore white uniforms, hit last and used the Padres clubhouse on the first-base side. Ball boys in retro-style mustard-and-mud Padres uniforms lent a San Diego feel to Petco Park, which opened in 2004.There was a home run on the games fourth pitch for the second straight year; Bryant connected on a 96 mph Chris Sale fastball with two outs.Hitters swung early in the count to beat the shadows creeping in from the left-field corner in the late-afternoon start.Bryant, who had struck out in all of his regular-seat at-bats against Sale, was part of an all-Cubs infield -- the first starting infield quartet from a single team since the 1963 Cardinals.I think a lot of us were looking first pitch, said Bryant, who played college ball for the University of San Diego. A lot of pitchers are coming into the game trying to light up the radar gun a bit.That was the highlight for the NL Central-leading Cubs, whose fan base was pumped up by the teams fast start to the season and dreams of the teams first World Series title since 1908.Mike Trout, the All-Star MVP in 2014 and 2015, singled in the first inning for a five-All-Star Game hitting streak. Only Mickey Mantle, Joe Morgan and Dave Winfield (seven each) and Stan Musial, Willie Mays and Nellie Fox (six apiece) strung together more.The National Leagues lead after Bryants shot was short-lived, with Hosmer and Perez going deep for a 3-1 lead in the second, sandwiched around Mookie Betts single. Cueto was hard to miss in the center of the field, wearing lime green and orange spikes.This morning, I got up and didnt feel well. That is not an excuse, Cueto said. I just left two pitches up, and that was the story.Hosmer, the first Kansas City player to homer in an All-Star Game since Bo Jackson in 1989, made it 4-1 in the third against Fernandez, when he hit a one-hopper off Bryants left arm and into left field for an RBI single.Marcell Ozuna cut the gap to 4-2 with an run-scoring single off Aaron Sanchez in the fourth.
