    The Minnesota Twins entered last night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles having lost five in a row.  During that five game stretch, they had managed to score a total of 16 runs.  On Monday night, they needed only one game to surpass that total, as the Twins’ offense exploded for a 19 runs during their […]

    The Milwaukee Brewers entered yesterday looking to close the gap between themselves and the NL Central leading Pittsburgh Pirates, and they would do just that, thanks in large part to a stellar pitching performance from starter Yovani Gallardo. Two-thirds of the outs recorded by Gallardo during his day on the mound came via strikeouts, as […]

    Whichever team ends up representing the National League in this year’s World Series will probably want to thank the San Francisco Giants.  After all, it was the solid performance from three of the Giants’ all-star representatives that helped the National League earn the 8-0 victory during last night’s midsummer classic, thus earning the NL World […]

    Three years ago, Price Fielder won the 2009 MLB State Farm Home Run Derby as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers, when he hit a total of 26 dingers over the outfield wall at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.   After an unsuccessful return to the competition in 2011, he was looking to reclaim his title […]

    We knew that history would be made at the All England Club during yesterday’s Wimbledon men’s final.  The only question was whether it would be Andy Murray making history by becoming the first Brit to win a Wimbledon title in 76 years, or Roger Federer etching his name into the record books by tying Pete […]

    The Pittsburgh Pirates are 27-13 at home this season, and with an overall record of 46-36, they currently sit atop the NL Central, two games up on the Cincinnati Reds.  Who would have thought, right? Their latest victory came last night, as Pirates pitcher Jeff Karstens put forth a dominating effort that saw him go […]

    A special shout-out to Joey Chestnut for him impressive performance at the 2012 Nathan’s Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest, as his 68 hot dogs was enough to earn him his sixth consecutive title.  However, it wasn’t enough to earn him the “Stat Line of the Night” for Wednesday, July 4, 2012.  Instead, that […]

    When the 2012 MLB season kicked off in April, no one expected to see the Pittsburgh Pirates competing for top spot in the National League Central Division.  Fast forward three months later to last night.  Not only did the Pirates own an impressive 42-36 record, but they were also just one game back of the […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/1/12 — Spain

    We rarely award “Stat Line of the Night” honors to an entire team.  Then again, we rarely see an entire team put forth a performance as great as the one we witnessed from the Spanish men’s national soccer team during their 2012 Euro final against Italy at the Olympic Stadium in Kyiv, Ukraine yesterday. Anyone […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 6/28/12 — Mario Balotelli

    Mario Balotelli is always capable of making an impact on the match every time he steps on the pitch.  The only question is whether that impact is going to be one that hurts or helps his team.  During yesterday’s Euro 2012 semifinal match against Germany, the Italian striker had a large impact on the game, […]

    When it comes to producing runs in the game of baseball, no Major League team can compete with the Texas Rangers.  The Rangers entered last night’s game against the Detroit Tigers with a league-leading 395 runs, thanks in large part to the production they have received this season from the likes of Josh Hamilton, Ian […]

    The Washington Nationals have been quite the pleasant surprise this season, as they entered last night’s game against the Colorado Rockies with a 41-30 record, good enough for first in the entire National League.  Much of their success has been the result of some great pitching, but yesterday it was the Nationals’ bat that were […]

    The Cincinnati Reds and the Milwaukee Brewers were expected to battle it out with one another for top spot in the National League Central in 2012, but three months into the season the Brewers have failed to live up to those expectations, as they ranked fourth in the division heading into last night’s game, six-and-a-half […]

    When the Boston Red Sox took the field yesterday afternoon during their series finale against the Atlanta Braves, all eyes were on Kevin Youkilis.  The 33-year-old third baseman was playing his 953rd, and final, game in a Red Sox uniform, as word had gotten out that he would be traded to the Chicago White Sox […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 6/21/12 — LeBron James

    LeBron James has heard all of the criticism before, from “he can’t win,” to “he can’t close out games.”  Last night he proved all of the naysayers wrong once and for all. When LeBron teamed up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, in their pursuit of “not one, not two, not three, not four,” but […]
