"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
The team improves their record to 20-24-1 and will face las place Northwestern this weekend.
Big win for the baseballers. The team returns to action on Tuesday against Oakland.
Watching the ball and stick game tonight and staying in to save a few bucks and finish off some beer in the fridge.
Tigers off to a good start - Castellanos with a 2-R opposite field homer. Porcello looked smooth in the first, putting down the Twins in order.
Despite the doom and gloom on talk radio, the Tigers are on pace for 94 wins, which everyone would take, obviously.
Figured I'd change the title and just keep this thread for all three games.
Tigers lead 2-0 in the fifth inning. Sanchez leaves the game early with an apparent injury.
Very interesting event in tonight's Red Sox/Yankees game, as Michael Pineda was ejected in the middle of an at-bat for having a "foreign substance" on his neck.
A similar event happened with Pineda in a game between the two teams back in April, but he washed off whatever was on his hand before the umps took a look at him.
Per the ESPN article, the MLB rule is that players caught in this situation face a mandatory 10-game suspension.
I'm trying to remember who the last pitcher was that was caught using pine tar or something on a ball. Wasn't Schilling accused of doing that?
Looks like the old remedy for pitchers isn't really helping (well except to numb soreness momentarily). Thought with so many involved and active in so many people here involved in different sports this knowledge should be widespread.
