On this date in 1863, in a second attempt to capture Fort Wagner, outside Charleston, SC, federal troops were repulsed after losing 1,515 men as opposed to Southern losses of only 174. The attack was led by the 54th Massachusetts Colored Infantry, commanded by Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, who was killed in the action. This was the first use of black troops in the war. The film Glory was based on the Massachusetts 54th, and this was the attack featured in the film. Fort Wagner was never taken by the Union.

ST PETERSBURG -- Three straight losses for the Rays, two of them gut-wrenching losses. Not exactly the recipe for getting back into contention in the American League East.
Monday night's 5-4 loss came when rookie left-hander Alex Torres got a shot to show what he could do in the ninth inning. Unfortunately, that shot came against the Yankees, one of the most professional groups of hitters in the Major Leagues. The results were predictable as the Yankees pushed across the winning run in the final frame on a walk at Tropicana Field with 22,471 watching.

SAN FRANCISCO -- After Ryan Vogelsong tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings, lowering his National League-best ERA to 2.02, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he was hopeful the right-hander would finally get the recognition he deserves.
Bochy named the journeyman pitcher, one of the biggest surprises in the league this season, to the NL All-Star team -- a decision he knew "raised some eyebrows."
For his part, Vogelsong wasn't concerned about proving the doubters wrong, and especially not about the fact that he has now thrown enough innings to qualify for the league lead in ERA. Instead, he just wanted to pitch well enough to win -- and show that his manager made the right call.
"They can say whatever they want to say. It doesn't bother me one bit," Vogelsong said. "But he stuck his neck out for me to pick me, so I want to show people that he made a good decision. I want to prove him right."
Vogelsong did just that Monday night, leading the Giants to a 5-0 victory over the Dodgers in AT&T Park.
