Today is Stewart's Root Beer Day.


ST PETERSBURG --  The Rays manipulated their starting rotation in anticipation of the Red Sox's arrival for a three-game series at Tropicana Field.
That personified the high regard in which the Rays hold Boston and the importance of beating their American League East rival.
Unfortunately for the Rays, once Sean Rodriguez swung and missed at strike three to complete Thursday night's 4-2 Red Sox victory, Tampa Bay had to look at the standings in the AL East that showed it was a game further behind Boston than when it arrived.
In defeat, the Rays moved to 36-33 on the season, while the Red Sox finished their AL East road trip at 8-1 and moved to 41-27.

Today is the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought Day.

PHOENIX --  Giants reliever Santiago Casilla wanted the pitch down and away.
Instead, Casilla's first pitch to Justin Upton with one out in the 10th inning Thursday night went down the middle, and the D-backs right fielder powered it the opposite way for a walk-off home run in a 3-2 Arizona win at Chase Field.
