Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich left Thursday night’s series opener against the Cincinnati Reds because of tightness in his lower back, the team announced.

The logical answer here would be former first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi, who has lost his starting role to Cordy Glenn, but the Bengals would save money against the cap by releasing Johnson instead of Ogbuehi. Johnson, the Bengals’ selection for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award in 2017, means a lot to the team; however, his snap counts have been falling with the team using him a lot as a defensive tackle on third down as opposed to on the edge. With the addition of Sam Hubbard, and young players like Jordan Willis and Carl Lawson needing to find playing time, Johnson might not have the role he once had. That could make Henrik Borgstrom Jersey him expendable. Katherine Terrell

San Diego’s Jack Murphy Stadium had witnessed a wild pitch before July 25, 1990. But nothing like this.

Twenty-five years ago this week, sitcom star Roseanne Barr stepped to a microphone during the break between games of a doubleheader featuring the Padres and Reds. She sang. And all hell broke loose. A national anthem became a national headline. Off-notes became beat writers’ game notes. A rote ritual of the pregame Dante Pettis Jersey became province of the president.

The Knicks beat several teams — including Portland, Sacramento and Memphis — because of Hezonja’s belief in coach David Fizdale and confidence that he can earn a significant role on the court for New York. He had five coaches in four seasons with Orlando.

Orlando declined its fourth-year option on Hezonja, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Hezonja, a 6-foot-8 forward from Croatia, played well during stretches of the 2018-19 season, averaging 9.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 22 minutes per game. In 75 games, he made 30 starts and shot 44 percent from the field.

The baseball story lines surrounding that game have since been lost to history. More than 2,500 miles away, George Brett of the Royals had just hit for the cycle. The Reds sat on the precipice of long-term greatness and a short-term slump. That summer would serve as the centerpiece of their wire-to-wire World Series run. That West Coast road trip would represent their worst stretch of the season, as they lost eight games in a row and saw their division lead dwindle from 11 games to 5 1/2. And a saga was brewing between Reds manager Lou Piniella and second-base umpire Gary Darling; 11 days later, Sweet Lou would say something that prompted a Darling-led defamation lawsuit.
