ST. PETERSBURG -- Now the Rays have company in first place.

Not since April 22 has Tampa Bay shared the top spot in the American League East, but at the end of Sunday afternoon, the Rays found themselves joined by the Yankees.

On Sunday afternoon, the Marlins defeated the Rays, 6-1, at Tropicana Field with 25,442 watching to claim the weekend series by winning two out of three. By losing, Tampa Bay fell to 40-23 on the season, while the Yankees defeated the Astros, 9-5, to move to 40-23, which means they share the best record in the Major Leagues with the Rays.

Read the rest here.

The Tampa Bay Rays, with a record of 40-23 are now tied for first with the Yankees in the A.L. East. hits the road on Tuesday for six games, with three at Atlanta and three against the Marlins. First pitch Tuesday is scheduled for 7:10pm EDT on 620AM WDAE, the Rays Radio Network and Sun Sports.


In Britain a toad underwent life-saving surgery after it was accidentally stabbed with a garden pitchfork. The toad had a collapsed lung but pulled through and was released back into the wild. (Guess it just wasn't his time to croak.)


The Roughriders dropped their preseason opener to the BC Lions yesterday, 19-17 in front of 29,227 at Mosaic Stadium. Lots of players for both teams got lots of looks in this first of two preseason game. Former Winnipeg quarterback Ryan Diwiddie was impressive in his Rider debut, with 13-of-19 passing for 141 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. Rob Bagg and Jason Clermont caught touchdown passes, Luca Congi kicked a fieldgoal and Ryan Elaschuk kicked 2 converts. Sean Whyte's 33-yard field goal 3:17 into the 4th quarter won it for BC. Riders play at Calgary next Sunday against the Stampeders at 3:00pm on 620 CKRM.


A couple in California were married Saturday at a Home Depot store where they work. They married in the outdoor garden section. (I wonder if the attendants were all wearing orange aprons?)


Bears glad to be back home.

Win or lose, Stars' first season a hit.

The series rseumes tonight in Hershey, with the Bears holding a 3-2 lead. Game time is 7:00pm, with the game available on the NHL Network.


That guy on the Old Spice TV commercials has landed a talent deal with NBC. His name is Isaiah Mustafa and he's already had bit parts on Ugly Betty, NCIS and Castle. (Well at least someone in this country is working.)


The Tampa Bay Rays are 40-23 and are now for first in the A.L. East with the Yankees. Boston is 4 back, Toronto 6 1/2 and Baltimore is 23 games behind.

In the A.L. Central, Minnesota leads Detroit by 2 1/2 games, the White Sox by 7 1/2, Kansas City is 9 1/2 back and Cleveland is 10 1/2 games off the pace.

Out in the (not-so)wild A.L. West, Texas leads the Angels by 1/2 game, Oakland is 4 back and Seattle trails by 11.

In the N.L. East, Atlanta leads the Mets by 1 1/2 games, Philadelphia by 3 1/2, while Florida is 5 1/2 back and Washington is 6 behind.

In the N.L. Central, Cincinnati leads St. Louis by 1 1/2 games, the Cubs are 7 1/2 behind, Milwaukee is 9 1/2 back, Houston trails by 11, and Pittsburgh is 12 1/2 behind.

San Diego leads the N.L. West by 1 game over the Dodgers. San Francisco climbs to within 1 1/2 games of the top spot, Colorado is 4 back and Arizona brings up the rear, 11 1/2 games out of first.


What kind of guy calls someone and fires them over the phone on a Sunday? Someone with no compassion or caring for his employees, that's who.
