2018 Open Starts Today, Geraint Thomas Takes Stage 12, Extends Lead at Tour de France, Kazakh Figure Skater Denis Ten Stabbed to Death and Dodgers Acquire Machado in Trade

The 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland kicked off today. Round one has so far seen Tiger Woods starting off strong with multiple birdies but at press time has just scored an unexpected close-range bogey on the 13th green. 2017 Open winner Jordan Spieth was three under par and within two strokes of the lead as he began the 15th hole, but a series of miscalculations left him finishing +1. Kevin Kisner currently tops the leaderboard with a -5.

Welsh cyclist Geraint Thomas won his second consecutive stage at the Tour de France, taking stage 12 on Alpe d'Huez today. Thomas is the first Briton to win a stage on Alpe d'Huez and the first man to win while wearing a yellow jersey, according to a report in the Telegraph. Thomas, who is currently leading the race for Team Sky, commented on the stage 12 victory:

"Not even in my wildest dreams did I think I would win on here," Thomas said. "It's one of those things that will stay with me for the rest of my life."

Kazakh figure skater, Denis Ten, who won a bronze medal at Sochi 2014, died in a hospital after being stabbed by two men trying to steal his car mirrors, according to CNN. Writing on Twitter, American skater Adam Rippon paid tribute to Ten:

My skating friend, @Tenis_Den, passed away today. He was so kind to everyone and a huge inspiration to me and so many other people. Murdered in the streets of Kazakhstan. Denis, thank you for showing us how to be a champion. Your time with us was way too short. Love you forever.

ESPN reports that the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired All-Star Manny Machado from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for five prospects last night. Dan Duquette, the Orioles' executive vice president of baseball operations commented on the trade:

"Obviously, it's a bittersweet day for our organization. We watched Manny grow up in our franchise the past eight years. We all know what an exceptional talent he is, from the great plays that he made to his elite hitting. He's always going to be an important part of our club's history."

The five prospects the Orioles get in return are: outfielder Yusniel Diaz, right-hander Dean Kremer, third baseman Rylan Bannon, righty Zach Pop and third baseman Breyvic Valera.
