Btw w how tonight's game is going, it puts extra emphasis on how important Anthony Bass' performance was last nite to preserve bullpen arms.
Coco Crisp 2-run shot. 10-3 A's in the 5th. That's it for Clemens. Overall, solid work by Clemens battling in a tough situation.
Man who trying to bring me an Oreo Blizzard!!
Meanwhile, two intriguing pitching matchups on the West Coast outside of Oakland. Check Giants-Padres & DBacks-Dodgers.
Cespedes HR. A's up 8-0.
Clemens regroups to get two outs and get out of the inning. A's up 7-0.
And Clemens starts his game off with a walk. 5th of the 1st inning for the A's.
Fourth walk of the inning for Cosart.
Callaspo goes gone. 3-run shot. 5-0 in the 1st. Ouch.
Cosart walks the bases loaded, Cespedes drives two of them home with a single. 2-0 A's in the 1st.
And finally, " Too bad, I had some probing questions for Pop.” All the best, Sages.
Sager continued: .... "with acute myeloid leukemia. From the sidelines to being sidelined, 40 veins and 40 electrolytes...."
Sager: "My favorite time of year – city to city, round by round, 40 games in 40 nights. A dramatic turn has ...
Wishing Craig Sager a speedy and complete recovery. We'll miss him next few months. His statement was a typical mix of enthusiam and humor.
Always keep that in mind!!!!
Can I pull off a Mohawk or Nah?? Lol
Parsons did not say that to McHale: "I texted him. "You don’t want part of these ‘Bad Boys.’” He said he dominated them until he got old."
Parsons on McHale's role in the Bad Boys doc: "He always brags about ...how he’s so much tougher than everybody. It looked like it on film."
Styles of Rockets-Blazers somewhat similar. There is one big difference. Aldridge took 590 mid-range shots this season. Rockets took 435.
Good Friday! The day God gave mankind the ultimate gift/sacrifice -- His son nailed to the cross for our sins. John 3:16
Of option to play Howard and Asik together to keep a big defender on Aldridge, Howard said, "Great. I've been really working on my 3 game."
And if there is still confusion (interest?), draft order ties are broken with a random drawing, not coin flip. Mea culpa.
With Rockets now slotted to have 25th pick after ties broken, they had 25th pick once. You'll soon see a lot of guy they took -- Nic Batum.
Since seems to have been some confusion, tie-breaker for draft order is a coin flip. Among 54-win teams, Por picks 24th, Hou 25th, Mia 26th.
Portland wins the tie - breaker with Rockets, Heat; will have 25th pick of draft. Rockets pick 25th, Miami 26th.
As always, all RTV episodes can also be viewed via the Rockets app, and audio-only versions of the show available on iTunes as well.
Statsny. Talk about clutch.
Springer made some nice defensive plays, including the diving catch in the 9th, but said the error in the 1st inning stands out most to him.
Now, time for the Astros postgame presser after this loss...
Springer flies out to right. 2 men stranded. Royals up 5-1 after 8.
On the flipside, Anthony Bass has been a huge positive outta the bullpen tonight for the Astros. Smooooth sailing in his two innings so far.
The Astros have one hit tonight after the first inning. Shields has been mowin' em down. 10 strikeouts so far, only 1 walk.
Before this game, Feldman had given up a total of 7 hits in his 3 starts (20.2 IP). Has given up 6 hits, 4 runs in 4 IP in this one.
Call overturned, inning over. But still, good to see that Presley hustle.
Game starts with a Springer error in right. Aoki to third.
The vinyl record(!) for the national anthem at the portsmouth invitational tournament just skipped a few times. Tourney started in 1953...
Isaiah Canaan, Robert Covington have both been re-assigned to the @rgvvipers, according to a team source.
Did you ever read about a frog who dreamed of being a king?
Rockets hoped for a Sun start; got it. Gm 1: Sun, 8:30 Gm 2: Wed, 8:30 Gm 3: Fri, 9:30 Gm 4: Sun, 8:30 Gm 5: Apr 30 Gm 6: May 2 Gm 7: May 4
You could say Mike Moustakas, with his .098 average, was due for that. Royals take the 5-4 lead in the 11th.
Best news for the 60 percent, none of the first four games of the series on NBA-TV. Will either be on ESPN or TNT.
First two games of Rockets-Blazers at 8:30 cst. Game 3 at 9:30 cst. Game 4 at 8:30 cst. Others if necessary TBD.
Ouch. Altuve picked off.
Rockets-Blazers 1st round schedule: Game 1 and 2 Sun, Wednesday; Games 3 and 4 Friday, Sun. April 3, May 2, May 4 if necessary.
