If you're too cheap -- or too broke -- to see The Hangover II in theaters, you're in luck because it's coming to the FX channel on cable. The bad news? You'll have to wait until late 2013 to see it. Of course, it'll land on DVD way before then.


ST PETERSBURG -- Stuck in a 4-for-33 slump, Rays manager Joe Maddon asked Evan Longoria to hit leadoff for three games to change things up. Well, it worked.
In Longoria's first game back as Tampa Bay's cleanup hitter, the slugger drilled a ball just over the left-field wall in the eighth inning for a decisive two-run homer, as the Rays rallied to beat the Rangers, 5-4, on Tuesday at Tropicana Field.

ST. LOUIS --  For all the frustration the Giants endured in Tuesday night's 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, it could have been worse.
Brandon Belt, San Francisco's prized rookie first baseman, was hit on the base of his outer left wrist by a fastball from Cardinals reliever Trever Miller in the seventh inning. Fortunately for Belt and the Giants, X-rays were negative. But until the Giants received those results, they were forced to contemplate the possibility of adding another name to the list of key players whose injuries have impeded their efforts to win a second straight World Series.
