Top 4 Sports Stories of the Day

At 15-5, the Milwaukee Brewers currently hold the best record in the MLB. Fans in Milwaukee have taken notice, as tickets on the Brewers schedule have seen the largest price increases in baseball. On April 1, Brewers tickets carried an average price of $78.55 on the secondary market. Now three weeks later, they have shown an increase in price of 19.27% and currently check in at an average of $93.69. This figure puts the Brewers firmly within the top third of ticket prices across the league. The sacking of Manchester United manager David Moyes after less than a year at the job is representative of an institutional crisis at one of the world’s most iconic soccer clubs. Moyes took over from Sir Alex Ferguson, arguably the most successful coach in soccer history, with an aging squad and a lack of experience at a top-tier team. The Red Devils’ problems on the pitch mirror the financial predicament the team currently faces, having beenpushed off the podium of the world’s highest earning clubs for the first time in 17 years last season. There was a price on Moyes’ head from day one, and ultimately the hand-picked successor proved to be incapable to do his job. San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has been named NBA coach of the year, making him just the third coach in league history to win the award three times in his career. The NBA announced the honor on Tuesday. He has won it twice in the last three seasons and joins Don Nelson and Pat Riley as the only coaches to win the award three times. Popovich led the Spurs to a league-best 62-20 record, which gives them home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. Chelsea capitalized on its defensive strategy, playing to a 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal. Jose Mourinho's ultra-defensive tactics worked at the Vicente Calderon Stadium despite the early exit of injured goalkeeper Petr Cech in the 18th minute. Mark Schwarzer came on with Cech's long-term replacement, Thibaut Courtois, playing in the opposite goal, on-loan from Chelsea. Raul Garcia and substitute Arda Turan sent headers wide, and Gabi Fernandez and Diego Costa forced Schwarzer into saves.
