MLB: Pirates at Brewers

The Pirates aren’t going away this year and after taking their last series from the Cards, to pull within one game of them, they now also sit 1 measly game out of a three-way tie for the 2 NL Wildcard spots. While the Bucs have no shortage of talent this year including their human highlight

Tennis: V. Williams, Kerber

Results: Kerber was pushed to 3 sets but her consistency held up against Venus’ 60 unforced errors.

The Williams sister have been a dominant force in women’s tennis for over a decade. Venus launched the Williams story and Serena followed to become the better of the two, face-to-face and on her own. The last two

NFL: Raiders at Seahawks

Results: Man, just giving away brags here. Suprisingly light duty for Wilson as Flynn was given most of the snaps.

This preseason has rainbows and unicorns shooting out of it in Seattle. Why? Well, a young man who is currently walking on water in the NW. Rookie QB Russell Wilson has taken his place at

MLB: Cards at Pirates

Results: Not only did St. Louis not pitch at Harrison, who took out Molina, they let him crush an HR in their loss. If LaRussa was still in charge, they wouldn’t be acting so soft.

U.S. Open, Round 1

Results: No seeded upsets? How?

The U.S. Open starts Monday and if Wimbledon is a ballet, the Australian Open a walk through the desert and the French Open an extreme sport then the U.S. Open is a rock concert. Bawdy, raw, loud and while not necessarily stressful all the time, surely tense. New York

MLB: Rays at Rangers

Results: Texas bats were live (6 runs) and Holland was his old self.

I don’t typically notice these things but, the AL Wildcard race is heating up. There are 5 teams within 3 games of each other in the race while the division leaders really only have a tentative hold on their leads. Except Texas.

PGA: Barclays Final

Results: Nick Watney (?) wins by 3.

To begin the final round Sunday at the Barclays, there are 17 players in the top ten. You have to imagine that one of those players is going to be the winner. Sergio Garcia is leading at -10 and Tiger Woods is at the bottom of the list
