Newman got blasted right out of the park


Pitcher No. 3 was done. 1/3 innings pitched, no hits, one earned run, one strikeout, and three batters faced.

Peterson fell apart in a hell of a hurry. He walked two batters to start, then crossed a run on a sac grounder. Still, he accounted for the first two runs of the inning, but that couldn’t keep him in the game. Next up: Hunter Newman. Poor, poor Hunter Newman.

Pitcher No. 4 was done. 2/3 innings pitched, no hits, two earned runs, no strikeouts, and two batters faced.

Newman is a big-time arm. He owns a 2.73 ERA for the season and can routinely throw heat in the high 80s and low 90s. This game should have done better by him.

As it turned out, though, Newman got blasted right out of the park, inheriting two runners from Peterson then walking Larnach on four straight pitches to load the bases

No. 7 Louisville and Texas A&M kicked off the early session on Sunday, and the Cardinals wasted little time in getting up on the Aggies in the second. Thanks to a flurry of five singles in the bottom of the frame, Louisville plated five runs there and things looked to be getting out of hand for A&M.

But the Aggies found an answer in the form of a fourth inning two spot, then a sixth inning dash for two runs that ended lefty Brendan McKay’s outing. That brought on bridge man Sam Bordner, who managed to stop the bleeding and get out of the jam. Bordner in fact pitched out the rest of the game, surrendering no more runs in the process.

Cason Sherrod took the hill for A&M in the bottom of the Cheap Dolphins Jerseys sixth, but Cheap Authentic Jerseys he must not have seen the Aggies’ offensive fireworks, because he got himself into a bases-loaded jam with just one out. Then, a throw-and-catch blunder at second on a chopper to the right gap pulled him off the bag so that he failed to complete the tag. That moved everyone forward one base and crossed Louisville’s sixth run of the day.

Rangers want to trade Yu Darvish, then sign him again


Listen, we know it’s tough to catch up on everything happening in the baseball world each morning. Trying to find all of it while on your way to work or sitting at your desk just isn’t easy. It’s OK, though. Subscribe to our daily MLB newsletter and let us do the heavy lifting for you each morning to find the things you need to see.

I know what you’re thinking. But I miss baseball! and Four days without Cheap Authentic Jerseys games that count is too many! Well, you’re being selfish. There. I said it. Someone has to.

Players don’t get that many days off throughout the season — it was even a topic the MLB Players Association brought up during the last collective bargaining agreement negotiations. And things kick off in February in spring training, too, so the season is longer than just April through September — and even longer still if a team makes the postseason.

Now if you’re one of the many All-Stars selected in a given year, you don’t even get those four days off. You’re flying into whatever city is hosting the game following your afternoon game on Sunday, put through a day of media availability and whatever activities MLB has planned for you, and then play in the Cheap China Jerseys All-Star Game and maybe even the Home Run Derby. That doesn’t sound like much of a break.

Players need a longer break, but fans could use it, too. Sure, it seems hard on Thursday night when you need the baseball fix you’re used to, but it’s the (non-mathematical) halfway point of the season. Take in the first half, give yourself time to relax and reset, and go see a movie or something. Spider-Man: Homecoming was great, and I’m particularly thrilled with Sony/Marvel’s decision not to make the titular character’s struggle involve The Plight of the Entire World. More of that in the future, y’all. Not everything needs to be apocalyptic to get your audience invested.

MLB trade rumor grades: Sonny Gray to the Astros?


‘Tis the season for trade deadline rumors. They’re flying around like June bugs, they are, and you keep swatting at them, but they keep coming. You need to figure out which ones are just June bugs and which ones are secretly chocolate June bugs that are covered in foil, edible, and delicious. We’re here to Cheap Authentic Jerseys help you by grading …

Let me start over. Webster’s defines rumor as …

Whatever, forget the introduction. We’re here to grade trade rumors. This one is about Sonny Gray and the Houston Astros. Jon Morosi says things are heating up. Which, whoa, maybe I’ll turn off this MLB Network broadcast and switch to Cinemax for the updates.

The Home Run Derby participants were announced on Monday night, with four players from each league slated for the July 10 power display. The American Leaguers are Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge — the major league leader in home runs — as well as Sanchez, Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sano and Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas.

Morrison is hitting .256/.366/.579 this season with 24 home runs, tied with Moustakas for third in the AL, behind only Judge and Houston Astros outfielder George Springer. Sano has 20 home runs.

Springer declined an invitation to the Derby, as did his Astros teammate Carlos Correa, the AL All-Star starting shortstop with 17 home runs under his belt.

On Tuesday, Morrison expressed disappointment by not getting selected for the Home Run Derby. But he seemed resigned to his fate.

The next home run Cody Bellinger hits will give him as many home runs as any Giants hitter has hit in a season since Barry Bonds left. Corey Seager will be an MVP candidate Cheap College Basketball Jerseys for the next 10 years, and Justin Turner is somehow getting even better at age 32.

Odell Beckham Jr. flew to Texas to visit a sick child in the hospital days before training camp


The few days before training camp begins are the last opportunity NFL players have to relax before the grind of the new season begins. Odell Beckham Jr. spent one of those days visiting a sick child in a Texas hospital.

Jayro Ponce is a 9-year-old boy fighting a rare form of cancer, and Beckham is his favorite player. According to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, Beckham went to visit Ponce in the hospital after hearing about his battle.

Lewis then allegedly took the pillow he was sleeping on and hit her with it. The pillow I was on, I hit her with it, he said. He also added that he had thrown the pillow at her.

I didn’t hit her. I just hit her with a pillow, he added. My whole goal was to get out of the house.

According to the police report, she suffered a scratch on her nose and hand. She also said that Lewis had pushed her to the ground by her throat, and stepped on her at one point.

Officer Mark Pulford testified that Nothing stood out that an altercation Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike had occurred, and a jury of six decided in favor of Lewis.

the Cubs just aren’t very good and the World Series hangover is real.


Harper’s a guy who openly campaigned against PEDs. He plays with fire and he wants to win. He cares about image. So what? He’s chiseled out of stone, and cares so much about his body, that when it was time to do his photo shoot for the ESPN Body Issue, his diet was stricter than a Catholic school rule book.

And why? Not for himself or for the ladies. He did it for baseball.

Enough with the grumps who dislike Harper because he looks like a jerk, or because he doesn’t leg out every single ground ball. He’s a passionate guy who feels exorbitant amounts of pressure to live up to both the hype and to usher in a new generation of baseball fans. Some of that is self-imposed, but a lot more of it comes from dudes yelling at kids to get off their lawn.

After the Cubs won the World Series last fall, many thought a dynasty was possible. But right now, the Cubs just aren’t very good and the World Series hangover is real.

The Dodgers (31-20) are 11 games over .500 thanks to players like Bellinger, who became the fastest rookie in team history to hit 10 home runs reaching the mark in 31 games. As well as the Dodgers are playing, they’re still behind the Rockies, who lead the NL West and have the NL’s Baseball Jerseys Wholesale best record at 33-19 after Sunday’s 8-4 victory over the Cardinals.

What complicated matters, the flip came shortly after Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar called Braves reliever Jason Motte a homophobic slur, which was beyond stupid in its own right. But still, talk about a lack of awareness.

I am a bat flip advocate. Hit a walk-off moonshot in the 11th inning Cheap Authentic Jerseys vs. a division rival? Flip that lumber into orbit. Hit an upper-decker that will send your team to the playoffs? Oh man, make sure that thing never comes back to Earth.
