It was a scary scene in Tampa Tuesday night when Toronto pitcher J.A. Happ was hit in the head with a line drive off the bat of the Rays Desmond Jennings. Happ laid motionless for more than 6 minutes and was carted off the field by paramedics. The concern on the faces of players on both teams, including Jennings and the hush of the crowd was dramatic.
The good news is that Happ lifted his hand and waved as he left the field and is now reported to be in stable condition at a Tampa hospital.
Drama in Cincinnati
The Reds pulled off a long ball comeback Tuesday, with Devin Mesoraco delivering a pinch hit home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to tie Atlanta 4-4. Before the crowd had a chance to settle down, Shin Soo Choo made it back-to-back, with a blast to left-center giving the Reds a 5-4 win. If you missed it, check it out.
Conley's Big Night
Former Buckeye Mike Conley has blossomed into one of the NBA's best point guards. There are so many good ones...Chris Paul, Steph Curry, Tony Parker, etc..that Conley is often forgotten, but if you watch Memphis play, you realize how special he has become.
After a rough finish to Memphis' series opening loss to Oklahoma City Sunday, Conley responded with a near triple-double scoring 26 points with 10 rebounds and 9 assists. He hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with two minutes left and scored six of the Memphis points during their decisive 10-0 run. It was a late game, so if you missed it, the highlights are here.
