The Morning After

Mrs. Woods...

What you missed last night...and the U.S. Open...

Blue Jay 7 Phils 1: Rookie Scott Richmond struck out 11 batters in 8 innings last night as the Blue Jays cruised to a 7-1 victory over the the Phils. Jamie Moyer struggled all night, giving up 6 runs and 10 hits in 6 innings, including a 3 run 1st inning. The Phils bats didn't help the situation much either, the way they were swinging you would have thought Doc Halladay was pitching for Toronto last night. The Phillies are 2-10-1 in home series this season. Their only victories are against the lowly Washington Nationals. Pathetic.

Nationals 3 Yankees 2: Speaking of the lowly Nationals, John Lannan went 8.1 innings last night in New York to lead the Nats to victory over the Bronx Bombers. Adam Dunn homered and Nick Johnson hit a two-run triple for Washington, helping to improve their record to 7-24 on the road. Embattled Yanks starter Chien-Ming Wang actually pitched pretty good for a change, allowing 3 runs and 6 hits in a season high 5 innings.

U.S. Open: Tiger Woods begins his U.S. Open title defense this morning at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, NY. Bethpage is one of the toughest courses in America, and the rainy conditions will do nothing but make the course even tougher. Most fans will be rooting on Phil Mickelson, whose wife was diagnosed with breast cancer not too long ago. This will be Lefty's only Major appearance this year and he's hoping to suppress his emotions for the next four days and bring home a victory for his wife. Tiger was set to tee off at 8:06am and Phil at 1:36pm. I'll be rooting for Tiger to dominate.


  1. Even will probably win it considering how hard the course is and the weather.

  2. They were saying last night that Scott Richmond was in the independent leagues last year in Canada. He was playing in the Golden Baseball League. The Phils made him look like Cy Lidle, I mean Young.

    I hope Tiger dominates
