St. Petersburg, FL. -- Hideki Matsui is already paying off for the Rays, but he wasn't enough to stop the red-hot White Sox.

The Japanese slugger launched a home run over the right-field fence in the fourth inning, but Chicago's bats were better in a 7-2 White Sox victory Tuesday at Tropicana Field. Matsui went 1-for-3 in his season debut, just hours after arriving from Triple-A Durham.

27-year-old Russian entrepreneur Pavel Durov has a few things going for him. The biggest: He's the CEO of Russia's largest social network (Vkontakte), which has around 120 million users.

San Francisco, CA.--
Melky Cabrera prefers to wear a poker face and maintain silence. But when he barely suppressed a tight-lipped smile Tuesday night at the mere mention of Willie Mays, it spoke volumes.

Cabrera felt proud, and justifiably so, after his performance in the Giants' 3-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. His three singles hiked his May hit total to 50, eclipsing the San Francisco-era record for the month that Mays established with 49 in 1958.
