Mostly cloudy and humid today with a shower or thunderstorm possible. Highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

(AP) Jose Ramirez and Carlos Santana each hit two of the Indians’ seven home runs in a 19-5 thrashing of the Yankees. Ramirez belted his first career grand slam in a seven-run first, and Greg Allen and Santana went back-to-back in a five-run eighth against rookie designated hitter Mike Ford. Every Cleveland starter had at least two of the team's 24 hits as the Indians stayed a half-game behind the AL Central-leading Twins.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock shares his thoughts on the global economy showing signs of a slow down, the Jeffrey Epstein case and experts saying a broken hyoid bone happens in suicide by hanging but is more typical in homicide by strangulation.

WAMC's David Guistina speaks with Jim Kevlin, Editor and Publisher of Hometown Oneonta, The Freeman's Journal, and All Otsego.com about a new book by Dolores Wharton.

Yoel Alonso sat in a cell for 10 months before he ever met with a lawyer. His wife had to travel 1,000 miles to visit him at the remote Louisiana facility where he was detained.

Alonso is not imprisoned for committing a crime. In fact, he turned himself in to immigration officials last October, seeking asylum from Cuba. Since then, he has been detained in two rural facilities — first in Louisiana, and now in Adams County, Miss. — where he is faced with daunting legal hurdles. Chief among them: Alonso has met his lawyer only once in his nearly 11 months in federal custody.

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. If you're in Henrico County, Va., you might want to check your doorstep. Someone has been dropping off old TV sets on porches, like Jim Brooksbank's, as he told WTVR.

(AP)  The Yankees earned their 16th straight win over the Orioles as Gary Sanchez unloaded a three-run blast in the first inning to help New York earn a 6-5 victory. Mike Ford’s two-run single in the sixth was the difference as the Yankees finished 17-2 versus the last-place Birds this season. The Yankees hit 61 homers off Baltimore pitching this season and outscored the O’s, 151-83.

An eighth-inning homer has pulled the Milwaukee Brewers within 1 ½ games of the NL Central lead.

There's "The Catcher In The Rye," "Franny And Zooey," "Nine Stories." Chances are you've only read J.D. Salinger's work in one form, as text on paper. Even after the author died nine years ago, the caretakers of his estate would not budge.
