Blessings from Mexico

The beginning of April started out great.  The staff organized a surprise dinner for me for my birthday to start off the month.  I am so blessed to have an amazing group of people to work with each day.  They have become my dear friends and family and am so thankful for each of them.  […]

The Various Passion Pieces of an Overworked Scatterbrain

Part 2: 2008: The Year No One Saw Coming In 2008, no one knew a golden age was coming. The 2007 Phillies had a solid regular season with an amazing end. However, they would ultimately go on to lose to the Colorado Rockies in the NLDS. We knew that the team coming back for 2008 […]

OK, there are millions of better photos of Niagara Falls on the computer machine. See? But they are impressive. Worth the trip, even if the area around them is VERY commercialized, on both the U.S. and the Canadian sides. But hell, they’ve had several hundred years to work on it. But I’m getting ahead of […]

FALL RIVER — In a battle of the Bulldogs Tuesday, the Los Molinos baseball team went to Fall River and brought home a section title, beating the host 5-4 for the program’s first section championship in 24 years. The Bulldogs went 8-0 in league play, to earn the No. 2 seed behind Fall River. After an opening round bye, Los Molinos beat No. 3 Etna 8-2 to advance to the section final. Fall River beat No. 4 Quincy 8-0. Los Molinos went up early, putting up two runs in each of the first two innings, but they let Fall River back in, giving up a run in the bottom of the second, two more in the third and the equalizer in the fourth. A run in the top of the sixth put Los Molinos ahead and the team held on for the win. Hunter Landingham came up big for Los Molinos at the plate, going 2-3 with a double, a triple and a pair of RBI; Devin Henderson went 2-4 with a double and an RBI; Ty Isaksen was 1-3 with an RBI and Hiram Lamkins and Hayden Hamre each had a double. Aaron Hardy started the game for Los Molinos, giving up four runs, three earned, on six hits through four innings, walking three and striking out four. Isaksen held Fall River scoreless through three innings, giving up a hit and a walk and striking out four. First year coach James Humphrey led the team to a 16-9 record overall. With just four seniors on the 16-man team, it’s a safe bet Humphrey and the Bulldogs will be favored to repeat in 2020.

Let’s be honest with ourselves, we’ve been incredibly blessed over the past few years when it comes to majors. We haven’t had a run-away win since Jordan Spieth ran away with the 2015 Masters, and we’ve been fortunate enough to have a handful of playoffs across the past decade. All this is to say that […]

Stanton has been out since the beginning of April due to biceps and shoulder injuries. It will be a little while longer. The Yankees […]

Photo courtesy of UNLV Athletics. UNLV had hopes of playing in an NCAA baseball regional this season, but the team’s .500 record is indicative of its inconsistency. Even so, the Rebels’ postseason hopes are still alive, and that’s what they are focused on as the Mountain West tournament begins Thursday at Peccole Park in Reno. No. 3 seed UNLV (27-27, 14-16 MW) plays No. 2 San Diego State (32-23, 16-13) at 2 p.m. in the double-elimination tournament. Top seed Fresno State (35-14-1, 20-8-1) faces No. 4 UNR (29-24, 14-16) at 6:30. The winner advances to a regional tournament. Fresno State, ranked No. 23 by Baseball America and No. 25 by Collegiate Baseball, is the only team in the field that could get an at-large bid, though their No. 38 RPI ranking doesn’t make it a sure thing. ”I think all four teams this week have a chance to win it,” UNLV coach Stan Stolte said. “Obviously, Fresno’s the favorite, as they should be. They rolled through the league pretty easy, and as we experienced last weekend, they’re playing pretty well right now.” Fresno State swept the Rebels in a three-game series at Wilson Stadium, winning 7-0, 16-5 and 11-4, and they have lost four straight entering the conference tournament. If UNLV has one advantage that can carry it to the conference title, it’s offense. The Rebels are third in the Mountain West with a .291 team batting average, behind Fresno State (.297) and New Mexico (.292). UNLV shortstop Bryson Stott is a projected first-round pick in next month’s major league draft. He is fourth in the Mountain West in batting (.361), second in home runs (10) and doubles (19) and first in runs scored (61). “Once your bats get hot and your arms get hot, it’s a fun game to play,” Stott said. “With the bats that are in our lineup this year, I think we have a chance to do damage.” Pitching is another matter. UNLV’s 5.76 ERA is ahead of only New Mexico’s 6.21 in the conference. Right-hander Ryan Hare will start against the Aztecs, and he has pitched up to the level of an ace with a 7-4 record and 3.79 ERA. Stolte said his biggest worry is falling into the losers bracket. “We’re not quite as deep (as other teams),” he said. “We think the best chance of winning is through the winners bracket, obviously, because it would be tough to come through the losers bracket. You’d have to play up to five games, and we’re a little thin when we get to the fourth, fifth game.” More Rebels: Follow at reviewjournal.com/Rebels and @RJ_Sports on Twitter.

Life, Loss, Hockey and Baseball -- not necessarily in that order.

Okay, truth be told, I haven’t really stayed far from the keyboard–just had my keyboard time controlled by other random real-life busy-ness. However, with a few minutes to spare before the next piece of business takes over the steering wheel of my life, I thought this would be a good time to get caught up […]
