SAN DIEGO (AP) Major league ERA leader Kyle Hendricks pitched six effective innings and the Chicago Cubs finished off a three-game sweep, beating the San Diego Padres 6-3 on Wednesday.

A look at what’s happening all around the majors today:

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Lisa Borders and WNBA players are ready to move forward.

SYDNEY (AP) Heavy rainfall in Sydney over 12 hours into early Thursday morning forced changes to the practice schedules for California and Hawaii just two days away from their college football season-opener at the Olympic stadium.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) The top five players on the PGA Tour this season should be plenty rested going into the FedEx Cup playoffs.

PHOENIX (AP) Brandon Drury drove in Jake Lamb with a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning, giving the Arizona Diamondbacks a 10-9 win over the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night.

LOS ANGELES (AP) Rich Hill pitched six dominant innings in his first start with Los Angeles and Justin Turner hit his 24th homer, lifting the Dodgers over the San Francisco Giants 1-0 on Wednesday night.

TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays are among the remaining major league clubs that can still say team goals are the priority and really mean it.

Maybe the Olympics oughta take a page out of these guys’ books. 

A video shared on the New Zealand’s Invercargill City Libraries and Archives’ Facebook page features some of its staff participating in “synchronized shelving.” 

After seeing the video, you’ll probably agree with the video’s description, saying there should be a petition to get the “sport” added as an Olympic event.

Watch as the “athletes” put the pizzazz into their shelving duties, performing a fabulous routine with coordinated arm movements and book tosses. It all looks pretty spectacular ― disregarding that little tumble at the 13-second mark. 

Unfortunately, though the crew didn’t get perfect scores from their tough-critic colleagues they definitely won gold in our hearts. 

So seriously, folks. Let’s make synchronized shelving a thing.

We need to talk about the weird gourmet food you can buy on department stores’ websites.

After reading about Neiman Marcus charging an insane $92 for tamales, we decided to do some further digging. We didn’t even know Neiman Marcus sold tamales. Apparently, they also sell full on, pre-made meals. 

It’s not strange for department stores to sell goods like individually wrapped chocolates, candies, or olive oil with gold flakes in it. Reasonably, these are items you’d want to gift and include in an ornate basket of some kind. You know, one for those old friends from high school that have purposefully decided to procreate and invite you to the celebration of their progeny.

Those gift baskets don’t baffle us. This $410 Stuffed Pork Crown Roast ― plus an extra $32 for shipping ― however, does baffle us. 

The roast “comes with 3 pounds of dried cherry and roasted pecan dressing,” but what we really want to know is: What else is this roast doing for us that it costs $410?

Some thoughts that come to mind:

Does the roast come with a bottle of Dom Perignon? Where does it come from? Will this make my Aunt Helen love me?

We asked Neiman Marcus where they get their foods, like this roast, and a spokesperson told The Huffington Post that they get them from “a variety of different vendors.” They told us they curate what they sell by inviting vendors to send samples to their “buyers to taste and then the buying team determines what they consider the very best that [they] can offer.”

While we figure out how we can get a job as a buyer so we can just eat luxurious roasts all day, let’s discuss the price point of this specific roast.

We know roasts aren’t cheap if you buy them from any old grocery store, but this is just nonsensical. The description says the roast arrives “fully cooked and frozen” but it doesn’t seem to come with a chef who’ll thaw and cook it for us. 

Also, if you must forsake your local grocery store and insist on buying a roast online, why wouldn’t you just get this Amazon roast? While 2 pounds smaller and sans cherry and pecan dressing, it costs a mere $89.99 and the shipping cost is also lower!

So, who is it ― who is buying a roast on the internet?

We all have at least two people in our lives that we fake friendship with who would probably buy this roast, but let’s pretend they’re not real for just a second. Who looks at items, like this roast, and thinks, “Yes, that interweb food is what we need for dinner?”

Well, we’ve found two of those people and they are NOT happy.

On Saks’ offering of Linda’s Gourmet Latkes, 24 latkes and one apple sauce jar for just $47.95, a reviewer let it all out. Disregard for just a moment that Trader Joe’s potato pancakes are just $1.99 for a pack of 8.

“Theodora B.” left the review you see below and really did not like the latkes. She found them “tough and dry after baking” and recommends going to your local Polish deli to find better ones.

Theodora wasn’t alone in her distaste for her gourmet meal online-shopping purchase. 

“Gretchen1” purchased the Brussels Sprouts Au Gratin and left a scathing review after not receiving what she ordered.

“I planned this for a dinner party when I stirred it realized it was a squash casserole,” she wrote in her review. “Really ended up in a mess — not very happy- sorry but will not order again.”

It looks like you may need to go offline for your side dishes, folks. The web seems to be a wicked place for small plates.

Have you bought one of these gourmet meals online? We’d love to hear all about it. You can reach the author at: jenna.amatulli@huffingtonpost.com.

Happy food shopping!

Quiet success for public market stewardship

Advertising group’s growth exceeds expectations in spite of Brexit caution

Astronomers using ESO telescopes and other facilities have found clear evidence of a planet orbiting the closest star to Earth, Proxima Centauri. The long-sought world, designated Proxima b, orbits its cool red parent star every 11 days and has a temperature suitable for liquid water to exist on its surface. This rocky world is a little more massive than the Earth and is the closest exoplanet to us — and it may also be the closest possible abode for life outside the Solar System. A paper describing this milestone finding will be published in the journal Nature on 25 August 2016.
