Orioles Rookie's First Career Base Hit Turns Into Ridiculous Clown Show

The Orioles and Blue Jays are currently playing a series that has no significance whatsoever to the greater baseball universe.

Knots Happen: Equipment Malfunction At Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships Knots Happen: Equipment Malfunction At Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships

You ever watch rhythmic gymnasts and wonder how the ribbons that they twirl while executing complex leaps, turns, and tosses doesn’t get constantly tied up in knots like your charger/laptop/game console wires do in that corner of your apartment that you never ever clean because then you’d have to deal with the wire…

The Red Sox Won Thanks To A Very Avoidable Error The Red Sox Won Thanks To A Very Avoidable Error

The Red Sox wrapped up a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays last night in Fenway in a very silly way. With the game tied in the eighth, Xander Bogaerts reached base on a one-out double, then stole third. Blake Swihart then pinged a tiny pop-up into the shallow outfield, and he seemed pissed as he trotted to first. It…

Fresh Out Of More Obscure Maladies, Fate Sends A Baseball Into Noah Syndergaard's Ribs

Cascading Series Of Fuckups Leads To Thrilling Game-Winning Goal

Here we have an example of the redemptive power of never giving up, from the Tajik Cup.

Gary Sánchez Really Couldn't Catch The Ball Last Night Gary Sánchez Really Couldn't Catch The Ball Last Night

The mighty Oakland Athletics pantsed the sickly New York Yankees last night at the Coliseum, taking two games from a pretty entertaining three-game preview of the most likely AL Wild Card game matchup.

Todd Frazier Duped An Umpire With A Rubber Ball

In Monday’s Mets game against the Dodgers, New York third baseman Todd Frazier made what initially looked to be a spectacular over-the-railing grab on Alex Verdugo.

DeAndre Yedlin Assists On Newcastle Equalizer (Yay), Scores Chelsea Game-Winner (Oof) DeAndre Yedlin Assists On Newcastle Equalizer (Yay), Scores Chelsea Game-Winner (Oof)

DeAndre Yedlin—just too old to be considered one of the American wonderkids, but still a promising youth—played a crucial role in Chelsea’s 2–1 victory over Newcastle Sunday, scoring the decisive goal in the 88th minute to punctuate a dominant Chelsea performance. Tragically, Yedlin plays for Newcastle.

Late in the first quarter of Saturday’s Dolphins-Ravens preseason tilt, Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso brought down Maxx Williams on a short completion on third-and-17, forcing the Ravens to bring on their field goal unit. Alonso kind of rolled off of Williams, then trotted over to the sideline. The Ravens sideline:

It’s been…

Hard Luck Dodgers Beat Themselves With Walk-Off Balk Hard Luck Dodgers Beat Themselves With Walk-Off Balk

So how do the Dodgers—the team with the best run differential in the National League, and the third lowest total of runs allowed in baseball—find themselves in third place in the NL West, and fifth in the NL Wild Card?

With two outs in the top of the fifth in today’s game between the last-place Orioles and the Yankees, Baltimore catcher Caleb Joseph tried to score from first base on a double, but he was out by a mile.
