Despite, an early 2-0 lead, the Pride baseball team (0-5) fell short for the third straight game to the no. 2 Florida State Seminoles (5-0), 14-4.
In their last basketball game in front of a Mack Sports Complex crowd, Pride seniors Cornelius Vines and Miklos Szabo helped the Pride to an 87-74 victory against the Georgia State Panthers.
In Game One of the World Series, the Phillies proved once and for all that they are legitimate champions of the National League and worthy contenders to repeat as Major League Baseball’s top team. In the face of bad weather on the road and the undeniably intimidating mystique of the Yankee legacy, the Phillies dominated in every sense: their pitching dominated Yankee hitting and their hitting dominated Yankee pitching.
As the Yankees face off with the Phillies in the World Series , Mets fans who are not cringing at the thought of either their cross-town rival or their division nemesis collecting a World Series ring, will give a collective yawn. One friend of mine who is a Mets fan declared he is just going to sleep through the World Series. Another one refuses to acknowledge that the World Series is even occurring.
And then there were eight. The Major League Baseball playoff field has been set. And, this year’s teams have all the familiar faces. Out of the eight teams, six have been in the World Series this decade, and five have won the title. Yet, each team has a different story.
There is only one question remaining for the Yankees this season: who will they face in the first round of the playoffs. As divisional rivals cannot face in the first round, the Bronx Bombers will match up against whoever wins the American League Central Division. At this moment, it appears it will be the Detroit Tigers.
As it stands after Wednesday, the Tigers are up three games over the Minnesota Twins with four games left to play. The two teams play each other head-to-head Thursday afternoon for the final time. In layman’s terms, that means that for the Twins to win the division in the time remaining, they would have to win the rest of their games while the Tigers would have to lose the rest of their games. This scenario is not likely, but not outside the realm of possibility either.
