a clean sweep at bristol

unbelievable. capping off with the irwin tools 500 tonight, kyle busch swept bristol this weekend. he on the truck race and the nationwide race this weekend as well. congrats to him meanwhile juan montoya took out jimmie johnson causing him to finish 35th in the race and is now 9th in the points. with the top 12 making it and jimmie sliding, im getting worried. hopefully he gets back on the schnide in atlanta on sept. 5. thats when the next race is

heck of a game at rogers centre - for a second day in a row

pitcher brandon morrow of the toronto blue jays struck out 17 batters and took a no hitter to the last out of the 9th inning in a 1-0 win over the tampa bay rays. he ended up getting the last out to pitch a complete game one hitter. not long after the rays got one of their own a few days ago they almost got victimized. the rays were no hit twice as well.

heck of a game at rogers centre - even for a rookie

this was quite a baseball game between the toronto blue jays and tampa bay rays. the jays won 17-11 in which they hit 8 home runs in the game - 2 by J.P Arencibia. the first one he hit was in his first at bat and the first pitch he faced. overall he had 4 hits (with the 2 homers). he was the first player since 1900 to hit 2 homers and four hits, the 5th player to hit two homers in his first game and 107th player to hit a homer in his first major league at bat. he had 3 runs batted in also. great game for sure
