ARLINGTON, Texas — Martin Perez threw eight scoreless innings, Donnie Murphy had a sacrifice fly and the Texas Rangers got a series-clinching 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday.
Perez (2-0) scattered five hits and walked three, but the left-hander benefited from four double-play grounders. He struck out two.
Murphy’s deep flyball to the left-center gap in the sixth sent home Josh Wilson for the lone run of the game against Brett Oberholtzer (0-3).
I am truly amazed at this video. It made me smile and laugh as I watched them fly for the first time.
I bet you will at least smile if you watch this.
AUGUSTA, Ga. – For two days Augusta National culled the herd, sending some of the game’s biggest names spiraling out of town and leaving just enough daylight between Bubba Watson and the pack to give the 78th playing the faint hue of a boat race.
But as is the Masters modus operandi, congestion returned under a warm spring sun thanks to what the venerable course does best – two-way traffic.
Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis have carried the Dallas Mavericks all season long.
So it’s fitting that Dallas is now in the playoffs because those two combined for 44 second half points Saturday night, turning an 11 point halftime deficit into a 101-98 Mavericks win at home.
The Padres signed outfielder Jeff Francoeur to a minor league deal at the end of March, a week after he was released by the Indians. Francoeur, 30, had adequate results, posting a .788 OPS in 35 at-bats with the Indians during spring training, but the team just didn’t have room with him in their outfield, so he moved over to the Padres.
Francoeur reported to Triple-A El Paso and his new teammates banded together to pull off an elaborate prank on him. They pretended that pitcher Jorge Reyes was deaf and Francoeur bit it, hook, line, and sinker, despite some obvious tells. Watch the prank in the video below, which includes Francoeur’s reaction when he learns the truth:
On a related note, asked source about #Jaguars at No. 3.
Them: ‘The Texas A&M kid.’
Them: ‘No — Matthews.’”
Evans is former Aggies receiver Mike Evans, the consensus No. 2 player at his position behind Clemson’s Sammy Watkins.

Passage: 50th anniversary of the Mustang
It happens this week . . . the golden anniversary of a car that’s galloped into automotive history.
It was April 17th, 1964, when the Ford Mustang made its debut at the New York World’s Fair.
Ford predicted its newly-introduced model (“the car that dreams are made of”) would sell about 100,000 cars.
Graduation from college is just around the corner. Northwood University is a 4 year university, I finished it in 5.
First of all, I’m very thankful to the good folks at Northwood for somehow putting up with me to complete my college degree in Business Administration. I’m thankful for my co-students that helped me along the way as well. Friends and relatives too. It’s been a long road, which was every bit worth the pain and suffering that meant getting homework done, missing lots of chances to sit on the couch and watch TV. It’s been well worth it.
