Josh Allen apologizes after offensive tweets from high school resurface

On the eve on the NFL draft, offensive tweets from a potential No. 1 pick, Josh Allen, surfaced on social media.

Mel Kiper projects the first round of the draft Thursday night, based on what he’s hearing. What will the Browns do with the first pick?

The former Wyoming quarterback acknowledged the tweets to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith late Wednesday night and apologized, saying he was young and dumb.

The tweets no longer appear on Allen’s account. However, they contained racial slurs and other offensive language, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Philadelphia’s Scott Kingery went 0 for 4 with four strikeouts. He has two hits in his last 24 at-bats with 12 strikeouts.

Phillies C Jorge Alfaro struck out three times while going 0 for 4 and is now 8 for 47 (.170) with 24 strikeouts.

Arizona RHP Zack Greinke (2-1, 4.13) faces Phillies RHP Jake Arrieta (2-0, 2.04) on Wednesday night in the second game of the three-game series.

He found himself at Arizona State, committing to play for head coach Todd Graham and offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey. Since Barnett’s arrival, Lindsey left for Auburn and Graham has been fired, leaving Barnett starting from scratch.

Barnett was behind starting quarterback Manny Wilkins at ASU and now will have the opportunity to find a starting spot of his own.

The Arizona Republic first reported Barnett was transferring, and Fox Sports first reported he was visiting USF.

Jazz: Ingles is 10 of 21 from 3-point range over his last two games. … Utah forced 15 turnovers. … Royce O’ Neale finished with a career playoff-high nine rebounds. … Rubio is averaging eight assists per game in the series.

Westbrook publicly promised to shut down Rubio in Game 4 after the Jazz point guard notched a triple-double in Game 3. His aggressiveness ended up with Westbrook drawing four personal fouls in the first half. In the end, Rubio shot just 4 of 12 from the field, but he finished with two fewer assists (eight) than the Thunder tallied as a team.
