Max Scherzer is a scholar and a gentleman great pitcher and a class act
Pirates are my favourite NL team, but Tabata leaned into that pitch.

Former MLB player Darryl Hamilton is reported to have died in a murder-suicide. His girlfriend is suspected to have shot him several times before shooting herself. Hamilton last played for the New York Mets in 2001.

This pic took me by surprise, cause Malkin (on the left) is like 6'2", so he isn't exactly small. Apparently the guy on the right, who the Penguins just drafted, is the Russian Nikita Pavlychev, and he's listed at 6'7".

My jaw dropped seeing England lose to Japan because they scored a goal on themselves. I felt bad for her, could you imagine waiting four years to play in the world cup getting to the semi finals and losing because you accidentally score the wrong goal, she would not stop crying. I hope her teammates go easy on her, jeez.

Looks like we get a repeat of 2011 USA vs Japan. Hopefully America can pull it off this time.

Well, I think they did.

USA 5, Japan 2

By scoring 3 goals in the first 13 minutes, Carli Lloyd became the third fastest to score a hat trick in Women's World Cup history. Her rocket goal from the half-field line was a sight to behold!
