Rollins Homers In 10th, Phillies Beat Marlins 5-4

Originally posted on CBS Miami:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jimmy Rollins homered with two outs in the 10th inning Saturday night, and the Philadelphia Phillies overcame two home runs by Giancarlo Stanton to beat the Miami Marlins 5-4.

Rollins drove a 2-2 pitch from Dan Jennings (0-1) into the seats in left. It was the 201st career homer for Rollins, but just the second game ender of his career. The first came June 23, 2010, against Cleveland.

B.J. Rosenberg (1-0) pitched a scoreless 10th for the victory.

Rollins finished with three hits and hot-hitting Chase Utley had two doubles and drove in a run for Philadelphia, which has won 12 of 15 against the Marlins.

DA Clears Man Arrested In Fatal Stabbing Of Dodgers Fan After Giants Game


This is Ridiculous no justice for the Montgomery family .

Originally posted on CBS San Francisco:

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — No charges will be filed in the death of a Los Angeles Dodgers fan who was fatally stabbed in September after a baseball game , San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon announced Friday.

Michael Montgomery, 21, of Lodi, was arrested Sept. 25, 2013 on suspicion of fatally stabbing Jonathan Denver, 24, near Third and Harrison streets in San Francisco following a game between the Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants at nearby AT&T Park.

He was released several days later, however, after Gascon said he needed more information from investigators before making a decision about filing charges.

On Friday Gascon said his office could not file charges because prosecutors could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Montgomery did not act in self defense.

Gascon said prosecutors have interviewed witnesses including members of both groups and independent bystanders, and reviewed evidence including videos and forensics…

Rivera — “Didn’t See (Jeter Announcement) Coming”

Originally posted on CBS Connecticut:

NEW YORK (AP) _ Mariano Rivera never figured this would be Derek Jeter’s final season.

“I didn’t see this coming at all. I didn’t see it,” the retired New York Yankees reliever said Wednesday. “For sure I was one of the guys that said they would have to pull his uniform off his body to take him out. But I was wrong, and this was a surprise to me.”

Rivera announced last March that 2013 would be his final season and was honored in every city the Yankees stopped in. Rivera, who turned 44 in November, had a record 652 saves in 19 seasons and 42 more in the postseason.

Jeter said this month that 2014 is his final year playing baseball. Rivera predicted Jeter’s farewell tour will be much like his own.

“It will be better,” Rivera said. “He deserves it. He has given everything for the game of…

Niese Leaving Mets’ Camp For MRI

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) _ Mets left-hander Jon Niese is being sent back to New York for an MRI on his ailing pitching shoulder.

Manager Terry Collins said Wednesday that Niese felt pain in the triceps area after throwing live batting practice earlier this week.

“It’s a precaution right now. But any time you’re sending someone for an MRI, obviously there’s going to be a concern until you get the reading back,” Collins said.

“He just said he’s got a little discomfort in there. So we’re going to go have it looked at,” he said.

Niese has been expected to be the Mets’ starter on opening day.

“Batting practice started and he felt fine,” Collins said. “And then he threw his second 20 pitches the other day. He just said at the end of it, `Geez, my arm’s just dead. Like, it’s dead.”’
