Auburn Doubledays

The Auburn Doubledays and Brooklyn Cyclones battled for three hours and 27 minutes on Wednesday night on Coney Island. And when it was all said and done, the home team ended up on top, 9-4.
Despite a tour de force start from Anderson Martinez in Game 1 and a valiant comeback attempt in Game 2, the Doubledays dropped both ends of a doubleheader by the same 3-2 score to the Jammers on Tuesday.
Monday's scheduled game between the Auburn Doubledays and Jamestown Jammers at Falcon Park has been postponed due to rain.
Washington Nationals fourth-round pick Robbie Dickey tossed four near-flawless innings, and the Doubledays won their fourth in six tries, solidly defeating the Jamestown Jammers 3-1 on Sunday at Falcon Park.
The Doubledays scored seven runs without hitting a ball out of the infield on any run-scoring play, and Auburn routed State College 7-1 to close within 1.5 games of the New York-Penn League Wild Card.
Every Spike scored a run in a marathon third inning, State College set a new single-game scoring record, and the Doubledays fell 17-4 at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
The Doubledays out-hit the Spikes eight to three, but two errors in the fifth and two key strikeouts from Raudy Read and new addition Brandon Miller led to a heartbreaking 5-3 loss at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park on Thursday night.
Travis Ott (1-1) picked up his first New York-Penn League win, Chase McDowell nailed down his first professional save, and the Auburn Doubledays swept the Jamestown Jammers with an easy 6-2 win at Russell E. Diethrick Park.
Reynaldo Lopez was spectacular once again, firing six shutout innings and boosting Auburn to a huge 5-3 win over the Jamestown Jammers.
Three Doubledays pitchers gave up three runs apiece, and Auburn dropped its fourth out of five, 10-2 at home to Lowell on Monday night.

NY Yankees

In what might be considered a final trial run for Yankee Stadium as the venue for 2015 MLS expansion team NYCFC, Liverpool and Manchester City gave fans a look at two English Premier League teams that have increasingly become part of American fans' collective soccer conscience.
By now, Derek Jeter is used to the celebrations, the pregame festivities that opposing teams honor him with in his final stops at their ballparks. Typically, he knows what to expect. But that wasn't fully the case Wednesday night when the Rangers honored the shortstop by surprising him with a special on-field presentation from the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush.
Peter O'Brien, the Yankees' No. 9 prospect, homered twice Wednesday, but it wasn't enough to lead Double-A Trenton to victory. The Thunder lost, 3-2, to New Britain.
The Yankees have been able to count on the back end of their bullpen most nights this season, which is why it was so concerning to see Adam Warren, Dellin Betances and David Robertson struggle in succession on Tuesday night against the Rangers.
Brian Cashman has said that he has "more work to do" in preparing the Yankees' roster for a playoff run, and if the general manager is able to cross the finish line on anything, there could be new faces in the clubhouse on Friday at Fenway Park.
One night after producing their biggest inning of the season, the Yankees' bats quickly went cold against Colby Lewis and the Rangers' pitching staff in a 3-2 loss on Wednesday at Globe Life Park.
Chris Capuano began the season with the Red Sox, but on Friday at Fenway Park, he'll take the hill as a member of the Yankees in the series opener.
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter moved closer to Honus Wagner on the all-time hit list with the help of replay on Tuesday night. Jeter's infield single also was big in the Yankees' seven-run rally against Rangers starter Nick Martinez and reliever Shawn Tolleson.
Brian Roberts has played in 91 games this season, marking his highest total since 2009, and Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that the veteran second baseman may be wearing down as a result.
The last time Michael Pineda was healthy enough to face a lineup, he was wearing a smudge of pine tar on his neck, an offense that got the right-hander ejected from an April 23 start at Fenway Park.
The Yankees erupted for their biggest inning of the season on Tuesday night, sending 11 men to the plate in a seven-run sixth inning. It could have been a laugher, but instead they had to hang on for a 12-11 victory over the Rangers at Globe Life Park.
Derek Jeter collected his 3,420th career hit on Monday night at Globe Life Park, passing Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski to move into seventh place on baseball's all-time list.
Joe Girardi has more of an inside track to the Yankees' trade-rumor scene than the average observer, but the manager said that he prefers to give general manager Brian Cashman his space to work, rather than get excited about moves that might not happen.
Mark Teixeira took on-field batting practice Monday for the first time since he sustained what the Yankees called a lower lat strain, and the first baseman hopes to return to the lineup on Tuesday against the Rangers at Globe Life Park.
The Yankees recalled outfielder Zoilo Almonte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday, immediately inserting the 25-year-old to play left field and bat ninth against the Rangers.
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter knows, with no hesitation, what he's going to miss the most after he retires from baseball at the conclusion of the season.
Brett Gardner continued to show off his head-scratching dominance of Yu Darvish, but the Rangers batted around against David Phelps in a four-run fifth inning and defeated the Yankees, 4-2, on Monday night at Globe Life Park.
With the passing of the Draft signing deadline, teams have had a recent influx of talent into their farm systems, and with that, MLBPipeline.com has updated the Top 20 Prospects lists of all 30 teams.
A ticket into postseason play remains up for grabs, which fits perfectly into the Yankees' business model of never giving up on a season. That has kept general manager Brian Cashman busy attempting to patch the ship, simultaneously chasing incremental upgrades and bigger fish to rebuild the roster for October.
Joe Torre batted sixth on Sunday, delivering his Hall of Fame speech eloquently, if not briefly, to end this year's induction of the grand Class of 2014. Torre spoke about his family and his love of the game, and he detailed each of the six times the Yankees went to the World Series during his 12-year tenure as manager, winning four of them.
Shane Greene went 5 1/3 solid innings, but the Yankees couldn't keep the Blue Jays off the board late in a 5-4 loss on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira took swings in an indoor batting cage and fielded ground balls at first base on Sunday, both for the first time since an MRI revealed a mild strain in his lower left lat.
Joe Torre said on Saturday that his relationship with the Yankees right now is right where it's supposed to be.
With the bases loaded in the seventh inning, Yankees second baseman Brian Roberts could not handle a shallow popup by Blue Jays designated hitter Dan Johnson. As it fell to the ground for a hit, the Blue Jays scored the deciding run in Saturday afternoon's 6-4 victory over the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
As former managers Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox prepare to be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi took some time to reflect on the well-respected trio before Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.
Chris Capuano, the Yankees' newly acquired left-hander, will be inserted into the rotation and make his first start for his new team on Saturday against the Blue Jays.
First baseman Mark Teixeira was not in the Yankees' starting lineup again on Friday, but he is optimistic that his return is coming soon.
The Yankees chased veteran Mark Buehrle after three innings and uncharacteristically slugged their way to a 6-4 victory over the Blue Jays on Friday night at Yankee Stadium. Ichiro Suzuki's first homer of the season led the way for New York.
On Friday afternoon, Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner sat at a table during a news conference and looked out toward 206 enthused Yankees summer campers. With eyes glued to one of their favorite players, nearly everyone eagerly raised their hands hoping to ask him a question. Over the past week, they had learned and practiced baseball skills and drills, but now it was finally their turn to speak to a Major Leaguer who started out just like they have.
Hired to be fired. That's what we say about managers, and we say it because it's true, even for those who one day wind up in the Hall of Fame.

NY Mets

Jeurys Familia hasn't batted regularly since 2012, when he was a starter in the Minors, but when his turn was up in a five-run seventh inning during a 11-2 Mets win, he delivered his second hit of the season and his first career RBI.
Jon Niese takes the mound for New York in the opener of a four-game home series Friday against Ryan Vogelsong and the Giants.
Count manager Terry Collins among those not anticipating sweeping changes before Thursday's non-waiver Trade Deadline. Two days after general manager Sandy Alderson said the Mets are "unlikely" to make any moves prior to the Deadline, Collins said he plans to continue focusing on "who we have and what we have" -- and nothing else.
The Mets team that routed the Phillies at Citi Field on Wednesday afternoon, 11-2, hardly resembled the one that scuffled for much of May and June. Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda homered and the offense put together five runs in the seventh.
Within a split second of the ball leaving Chase Utley's bat, it was clear this was not going to resemble the type of game the Mets have grown accustomed to playing in recent weeks. Utley's grand slam sped out of Citi Field on a line on Tuesday night, landing halfway up the second deck in right and sending Cole Hamels and the Phillies to a 6-0 victory over the Mets.
Salmaan Khan and Matthew Silva co-founded "People for the Pavilion," an advocacy group looking to preserve and develop the landmark New York State Pavilion, and the Mets thought highly enough of the group's endeavor to reach out and help.
If Lucas Duda -- who was out of Tuesday's lineup against Phillies lefty Cole Hamels -- wants to complete his transformation from middling prospect to everyday stalwart, he will need to prove he can hit left-handed pitching.
Wilmer Flores received another start at shortstop on Tuesday, his third in six games since the Mets recalled him from Triple-A Las Vegas. But that does not mean Flores is about to receive regular playing time over Ruben Tejada, who has also started three games since being hit in the head with a pitch last week.
These days, each win carries with it implications. The Mets are relevant again, or at least relatively relevant, sitting four games under .500 after Monday's 7-1 dismantling of the Phillies at Citi Field. They are demonstrating obvious growth on a daily basis. They are -- dare it be said -- thriving.
Another day, another Mets challenge. New York manager Terry Collins asked umpires to review a call for the fifth game in a row on Monday, this time on a ruling that Philadelphia's Marlon Byrd was safe at second on Carlos Ruiz's infield single in the sixth inning. After a review of one minute and 51 seconds, the call on the field stood.

SU Athletics

SYRACUSE, NY – Louisiana Tech will return to the Carrier Dome for the first time since the 1988-89 season when Syracuse hosts the Bulldogs on Sunday, December 14.

Syracuse football head coach Scott Shafer took part in the ESPN ACC Coaches "Car Wash" on Monday at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut. The annual event brought head coaches from around the conference to "The Worldwide Leader" for a day packed with interviews and appearances across ESPN's different shows and platforms.

Success on Saturdays in the fall is paid for by countless hours of work in the off-season. Syracuse football knows this and the Orange have been working hard with the program's world-class strength and conditioning staff to prepare for the 2014 season.

Head coach Scott Shafer will appear on various ESPN media platforms Monday when he takes part in ESPN's mid-summer "car wash."

On July 25, the Syracuse football team will continue on its mission to raise awareness about brain cancer, something that affected the Orange in recent years.  For the second summer in a row, the Syracuse University chapter of Uplifting Athletes will be hosting a Lift for Life event to raise money for Anaplastic Astrocytoma; an uncommon form of brain cancer that former Syracuse punter Rob Long battled during his senior year with the Orange in 2010-11.
