Boxing great Oscar De La Hoya announced he'll run in the next election for President of the United States. While in Vegas promoting a match, he stated, "That’s the beauty of our nation. If Arnold (Schwarzenegger) can be governor, if (Donald) Trump can be President, then why can’t a Mexican-American who won an Olympic gold medal, who’s over 35 and a U.S. citizen, run for presidency?”

With 2 1/2 weeks left in the regular season and nine games ahead in the American League East, the Boston Red Sox clinched a playoff berth.

The New York Mets lost to the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, but Cy Young candidate, Jacob deGrom set a Major League Baseball record with three or fewer runs in 26 consecutive starts. deGrom, a favorite to win the prestigious award, broke a 108-year-old record set by Leslie "King" Cole.
