Carlos Beltran homers
The National League in baseball had a plethora of games on the diamond as the New York Mets walloped the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4 with 2 RBI’s from Lucas Duda, the Washington Nationals lost by one run to the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-4 as Andrew McCutchen got his first homerun of the season, the Atlanta Braves knocked off the Chicago Cubs 3-1 with 2 RBI’s from Dan Uggla, the Miami Marlins was defeated by the Houston Astros 3-2 as Wilton Lopez earned his 3rd win, the Cincinnati Reds were crushed by the Milwaukee Brewers 8-3 with a homerun from Cesar Izturis, while the defending champions St. Louis Cardinals pummeled the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-1 as Carlos Beltran belted 2 homeruns, the Colorado Rockies lost to the San Diego Padres 3-1and the San Francisco Giants eked out a one run win over the LA Dodgers 2-1 as Brett Pill launched a homerun.

In sporting news, as the news of concussions and the early, untimely passing of National Football League players, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health revealed in a study that former players live longer than men in the general population.  Players participated for at least five seasons from 1959-1988 and they were observed the organization through 2007 and basically is a follow-up to a 1994 report the organization performed at the request of the players union as the union had concerns that players were passing away prematurely. 

For your NFL Quick Hits, former Minnesota Vikings All-Pro receiver Cris Carter says he put "bounties" on opposing players as a form of protection during his 16-year NFL career and stated “Protect myself. Protect my family. That's the league that I grew up in", the Minnesota Senate pushed more Vikings stadium financing costs in the direction of the team and fans Tuesday as supporters grasped for extra votes to keep the proposal alive, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs had surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon Tuesday and is expected to make a full recovery, the San Diego Chargers have signed draft picks Melvin Ingram, Kendall Reyes and David Molk to four-year contracts and finally, the Baltimore Ravens have reached a two-year deal with Jacoby Jones for $7 million dollars and agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension with safety Bernard Pollard.
