Nick Blackwell is no longer sedated after being operated on to reduce swelling on his brain.The retired middleweight is understood to be stable but as he is yet to wake his condition is being monitored.The 26-year-old suffered the injury last Tuesday in an ill-advised sparring session that took place despite him no longer having a licence to box.He had retired after collapsing at the end of his defeat by Chris Eubank Jr. in March, when he was found to have suffered a bleed on the skull and put into an induced coma.While Blackwell remains in hospital and will continue to be monitored by doctors, the British Boxing Board of Controls investigation into the circumstances surrounding his injury is also ongoing.Their general secretary Robert Smith has spoken of their need to discover who oversaw the sparring session and who else was involved.The incident happened without the knowledge of Blackwells former trainer Gary Lockett, who had encouraged the fighter to get his trainers licence if he wanted to remain in the sport.Lockett said in a statement: I cant believe the boxer he sparred with, and [the] coach or coaches involved, would ever allow Nick to spar when hes had a brain injury.In due course, I hope they are dealt with by the British Boxing Board of Control in the correct manner.We thought that was all going very well and while we knew Nick missed boxing, we obviously didnt realise the extent to which he missed it.I am deeply saddened by what has happened. Nick is not just an ex-boxer of mine, but also someone I consider to be a friend.

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles will stand alone atop the AL East at the All-Star break, thanks to another home run by Mark Trumbo and a comeback fueled by an unusual balk.Jonathan Schoop trotted home with the tying run in the seventh inning and delivered the decisive RBI single in the eighth to carry Baltimore past the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 Saturday.The Orioles have been alone in first place since June 16 and will remain there through the break, which begins after the conclusion of Sundays schedule.Obviously, its the end game were after, manager Buck Showalter said.Right-hander Yovani Gallardo, who allowed two runs in five-plus innings, said, Being in first place going into the All-Star break, its good. But we all understand weve got a long way to go.Baltimores immediate goal is to hit the break with another victory after splitting the first two games of the series.Weve just got to finish strong, then get three days rest and come back next half stronger, Schoop said.Trumbo hit his major league leading 28th home run for Baltimore, a solo shot in the second inning. It was the Orioles 135th homer of the season, their most before the break.Angels starter Nick Tropeano gave up one run and five hits in six innings, striking out eight. He left with a 2-1 lead, but the bullpen promptly gave it away.After the Orioles got runners to second and third in the seventh against JC Ramirez, Joe Smith (1-4) came in and immediately dropped the ball from the set position for a balk, enabling Schoop to score.I just messed up. Thats the most embarrassing moment Ive ever had on a baseball field, Smith said. That was 100 percent my fault.In the eighth, Manny Machado and Chris Davis singled before Schoop lined a single to center to bring in the go-ahead run.Brad Brach (6-1) worked the eighth and Zach Britton finished for his 26th save. Both relievers are going to the All-Star Game.Daniel Nava had two RBI forr the Angels, who were bidding for their season-high fifth straight win.ddddddddddddWe had some opportunities to break the game open, manager Mike Scioscia said. So obviously, theres going to be a spotlight on the balk in the seventh inning, but theres a lot of things that led up to that.Limited to three hits over the first five innings, Los Angeles erased a 1-0 deficit in the sixth. Two singles and a walk loaded the bases for Nava, who ripped a two-run single off the right-field scoreboard.Mychal Givens replaced Gallardo and pitched out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam. In the seventh, Givens struck out Mike Trout with two outs and a runner on third.One of the games finest defensive plays occurred in the fifth inning. After Jett Bandy hit a liner off the wall in left-center, Adam Jones barehanded the carom and zipped a throw to second base for the out. Andrelton Simmons followed with an inconsequential single.STREAKYAngels: Simmons extended his hitting streak to 11 games. ... Yunel Escobars hitting streak ended at 13 games.Orioles: Brach extended his scoreless streak to 10 games and 12 2/3 innings. ... Schoop has hit safely in eight straight games and 19 of his last 20.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: C.J. Cron was placed on the DL late Friday with a fractured left hand, so Ji-Man Choi and Jefry Marte will split time at 1B, Scioscia said.Orioles: Setup man Darren ODay (right hamstring strain) will throw on flat ground Sunday. There is no timetable for his return. We need to get him back, Showalter said. He completes the bullpen.UP NEXTAngels: Tim Lincecum (1-2, 7.50 ERA) wraps up the first half Sunday by making his fifth start since signing with LA on May 20.Orioles: Chris Tillman (11-2, 3.55) can surpass his win total of the 2015 season with a victory in the series finale.
