Today is Ball Point Pen Day.


BALTIMORE -- After a night off, the Tampa Bay Rays are back in action tonight against the Baltimore Orioles. Jerremy Hellickson goes to the mound for Tampa Bay. He'll be opposed by the Orioles' Jake Arrieta. First pitch is set for 7:05pm EDT.
June is Rebuild Your Life Month.

SAN FRANCISCO --  Allow your imagination to wander, and wonder: What would happen if Madison Bumgarner pitched against the Giants?
The results probably would barely differ from what Bumgarner has endured all season -- including Thursday night, when the Giants lost, 3-0, to the Reds.
Pay no attention to Bumgarner's 2-8 record. He owns a 1.93 ERA in his past nine starts and a 3.23 mark overall. The Giants have scored one run or fewer -- that would be zero -- in seven of his defeats.
