To get the second output, change the OR in your WHERE clause to an AND. Then both columns must have the substring "ball" in their values for that expression to become true.

If you a need a simple single-column list of all the values from game1 and game2 listing any value with "ball" in it, you will need to use the UNION operator to combine the results of separate queries into a single result.

SELECT game1 from sports where game1 like '%ball%'
SELECT game2 from sports where game2 like '%ball%'
