  • Korean pitcher's pickoff attempt goes dangerously wrong

    Lim Chang-yong’s wild pickoff throw nearly hits Oh Jae-won.

    Donald Trump isn't making it easy for top supporters and advisers, from his running mate on down, to defend him or explain some campaign positions. Across the Sunday news shows, a parade of Trump stand-ins, led by vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence, couldn't say whether Trump was sticking with or changing a central promise to boot the roughly 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally, with the help of a "deportation force." And they didn't bother defending his initial response Saturday to the killing of a mother as she walked her baby on a Chicago street. It was a striking look at Trump's leadership of a team he had said would help drive him to victory in the Nov. 8 election.
