After the first 6 innings of tonight's game at Yankee Stadium, it looked as if the Diamondbacks were cruising to an easy victory and setting up a "rubber game" in the series finale on Thursday. But as John Sterling would probably say, "that's why the game of baseball is 9 innings," and now the Diamondbacks will look to avoid a sweep when they take the field again.
For anyone who ever pays attention to the articles I usually put together for this website, you are very aware that it is extremely rare for me to post a video and that I usually only write about news stories. However, when something as awesome as this occurs, I willingly make an exception.
When you grow up as an avid sports fans, there are certain men in the broadcasting industry that just stick with you for all eternity. Pat Summerall was one of those voices for the National Football League, and sadly he has passed away at the age of 82. A family friend confirmed to the Dallas Morning News that Summerall passed away in his hospital room at Zale Lipshy Hospital while recovering from hip surgery.
Today is very special to Major League Baseball, as the league holds their annual celebration of Jackie Robinson Day. During every season on April 15th, MLB commemorates the anniversary of Robinson breaking the color barrier when he made his debut for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. This season is particularly special, as the movie "42" was just released last Friday and had the best box office sales in movie theaters over the weekend.
Last week, Siena College introduced the new head coach of their men's basketball program, former Loyola coach Jimmy Patsos. He brings a lot of experience to the table from his time as an assistant under legendary coach Gary Williams at the University of Maryland, as well as the last ten years he spent within the MAAC during his tenure at Loyola.
As the New York Yankees entered today's game at Progressive Field, some fans were already starting to worry about Robinson Cano's lack of production at the plate, just one week into the season. But today, Cano silenced his doubters for now by blasting a pair of homers, along with a double and four runs scored, as the Yankees blew out the Cleveland Indians 11-6.
You could argue that if you were to give a theme to the 2013 season for the New York Yankees, it would probably be "the good, the bad and the ugly." This afternoon's game at Comerica Park in Detroit was a perfect example of that theme, as the Yankees dropped the opener of a three-game set to the Tigers, by a score of 8-3.
Every now and then, we hear stories about athletes going to new teams and "paying off" a new teammate in order to claim his usual jersey number, the most recent example being Carson Palmer looking to take #3 off the back of Arizona Cardinals kicker Jay Feely
In the wake of Mike Rice being fired as head coach of the Rutgers men's basketball team, people are beginning to question what is "acceptable" behavior for sports coaches. How far do you think a coach can push the limits without going too far?
The last twenty-five years for the men's basketball program at Siena College has experienced its peaks and valleys, with the recent "peak" being under current Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery and the recent "valley" occurring with recently-fired coach Mitch Buonaguro. Now, fans of the Saints and athletic director John D'Argenio will pin their hopes on a new leader to return the program to its not too distant prominence - Jimmy Patsos from the Loyola (MD) Greyhounds.
CC Sabathia struggled through his first 5 innings of the 2013 MLB regular season, allowing four runs and walking four batters. His pitching line was just a small example of a painful start to the season, with very few bright spots from the entire team. For the first time since 1986, the New York Yankees lost a home game on Opening Day, going down the Boston Red Sox 8-2 in the Bronx.
