Were the Houston Texans
playing in 1961???
The National League were swinging their bats last night in Major League Baseball as the New York Mets pasted the Miami Marlins 5-1 with a Grand Slam from Jason Bay, the defending champs St. Louis Cardinals lost by a run to the Washington Nationals with 6 scoreless innings pitched by Stephan Strasburg, the Cincinnati Reds knocked off the Houston Astros 5-3 as Jay Bruce homered for the 29th time and started a 5 run rally, the  Pittsburgh Pirates were pummeled by the Milwaukee Brewers 12-8 as the Brewers tally 5 homers, the San Francisco Giants got past the Chicago Cubs 7-5, while the runs were a plenty between the San Diego Padres, who scored 10 runs, but the Colorado Rockies did them one better and scored 11 as Tyler Colvin belts his 17th homer, the Arizona Diamondbacks lost by one measly run 5-4 to the LA Dodgers off of Adrian Gonzalez’s walk off 2 run double and the Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Atlanta Braves 8-7 as Chipper Jones belts a 3 run homer in the 9th inning.
There is work yet to be done as 20th seeded Andy Roddick held off retirement with another victory at the 2012 US Open in Flushing Meadow as he needed 4 sets against Fabio Fognini 7-5, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4, 8th seeded Janko Tipsarevic knocks off Grega Zemlja in straight sets 6-4, 6-3, 7-5, 7th seeded Juan Martin del Porto got past Leonardo Mayer 6-3, 7-5, 7-6, while 13th seeded Richard Gasquet defeated Steve Johnson in straight sets 7-6, 6-2, 6-3, 18th seeded Stanislas Wawrinka outlasted 14th seeded Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-4, 6-4, 6-2, 2nd seeded Novak Djokovic cruised to victory over 31st seeded Julien Benneteau 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 and 4th seeded David Ferrer required 4 sets of work to knock of Lleyton Hewitt 7-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-0.
Round 3 concluded at the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston with a barrage of birdies from Louis Oosthuizen as he finished atop of the leaderboard with a 19 under par, Rory McIlroy is 2nd with 16 under par, Dustin Johnson and Tiger Woods are 6 shots back sitting on 13 under par and there are a couple of players tied for 5th at 11 under par.
Major League Soccer kicked around the ball last night with three games scheduled as the Chicago fire ran away from the Houston Dynamo 3-1, FC Dallas played to a 1-1 tie against the Seattle Sounders FC and San Jose Earthquake SHUT OUT Chivas USA 4-0.
For your NFL Quick Hits, Shad Khan, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars indicated the train was leaving and Maurice Jones-Drew should get on board and that’s exactly what he did yesterday as Jones-Drew ended his 38 day holdout and reported to the team, without a new deal, after being cut by the Denver Broncos on Friday, the Detroit Lions agreed to terms with veteran cornerback Drayton Florence on Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens have signed former New England Patriots safety James Ihedigbo, the Panthers parted ways Sunday with defensive tackle Terrell McClain and replaced him with free agent Dwan Edwards, an eight-year veteran who was cut Friday by the Buffalo Bills and finally, it’s hard to win the AFC Championship when the team did not exist, but according to an Old Navy T-shirt, the Houston Texans did just that even though team was not playing way back when you were a twinkle in your momma and daddy’s eyes……huh?!
