Pelosi asked key committee chairs to get to work on putting together the bill. The package is expected to include stimulus checks, aid for airlines, small businesses, cities and states, as well as rental assistance, unemployment assistance and funds for election security and the U.S. Postal Service.

“We are still striving for an agreement,” Pelosi said in the leadership meeting. She suggested the legislation could come to a vote on the House floor even if no bipartisan deal is reached.

News of Pelosi’s push briefly lifted the Dow Jones industrial average before it gave back much of those gains, closing up 0.2 percent as prospects for a deal remained cloudy. The Dow has slumped in September, losing nearly 9 percent in just three weeks.

“I think we’re headed towards a resurgence of the virus in the fall, and until we defeat the virus, you’re not going to have a full

As horribly as most of Tuesday played out for the Phillies, they were still in position to gain ground — that’s right, gain ground — on multiple teams in the National League playoff race if they could have just held on to beat the Nationals in extra innings in Game 2.

Brandon Workman allowed a walk-off home run to Yadiel Hernandez, the first of his career. Nevermind.

Instead, the Phillies plummeted to 10th in the eight-team NL playoff race. They fell a game behind both the Reds and Brewers, who now occupy the 7- and 8-seeds.

They’re also a game behind the Giants. They are two back in the loss column of the two teams in front of them.

The Phillies’ playoff chances are down to 33.5%, according to Fangraphs. As recently as Sunday morning, they had an 87% chance to make the playoffs.

The Phillies also missed an opportunity

One of the main draws of the Paycheck Protection Program was the ability to have loans forgiven if the money was used as the law permitted — with 60% of the capital going to payroll and 40% to other allowable expenses. But as forgiveness opened up last month, some banks and small businesses are reporting difficulty navigating the process, and advocates are pushing for simplicity for already

Throughout the Rangers’ initial spring training, Wes Benjamin wasn’t in big league camp. Neither was John King. And Kyle Cody was there but not healthy enough at the time to pitch in games.

The Rangers had their view of starting pitching depth. But those three didn’t really crack the radar screen. It was others such as Kolby Allard, Joe Palumbo and even Brock Burke before he was injured.

Those three, though, have either been hurt or haven’t performed. And the trio of unexpected talent has stepped up. Benjamin was the most recent — tossing five strong innings in a 7-3 Rangers loss to Arizona on Wednesday.

“I don’t think those guys took a step backward,” manager Chris Woodward said of Allard, Palumbo and Burke, “as much as the other guys took a step forward. And it’s cool, it’s cool to see guys like Kyle Cody come on the scene, and
