Little League home run in Texas

Not often do you see a single to right field turn into a trip around the bases, but Rangers OF Delino DeShields made it happen today when his hit slipped under the glove of Toronto RF Jose Bautista and rolled to the warning track, allowing DeShields to score. The Blue Jays lead 4-0 in the 7th. Follow live

OTD: Rickey Henderson the steals king

On Aug. 27, 1982, The Man of Steal swiped his 119th bag of the season to break Lou Brock's single-season steals record. Henderson would end up with 130 steals -- still good for most in one season.

Kind of weird to see Bryant in right. He played there and in CF in college though. Not so much in left.

With Brett Gardner saying the Yankees' looked "flat" on Wednesday, I asked GM Brian Cashman today if he might summon a spark from Triple-A. Fans have clamored for Rob Refsnyder to replace Stephen Drew at second base. However, Cashman said the team will stand pat, noting that on Sept. 1 they will have call-ups when the rosters expand.
