The Phillies took on the St. Louis Cardinals last night on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. Kyle Kendrick took the mound for the Phillies facing off against Cardinals starter Jake Westbrook. Kendrick allowed two runs on eight hits while striking out six while getting the no decision. With the game tied at three in the bottom of the eighth. The Phillies got runners on first and third with one out when Ben Revere lined a ball back up the middle to give the Phillies a 4-3 lead. Erik Kratz followed Revere with a three-run monster homerun to left field (he included his bat flip) to put the Phillies up 7-3 and that would be the final score. Michael Young extended his hit streak to 12 games with his infield single in the eighth inning. More here.
The New York Jets have parted ways with their best player and one of the best players at his position, Darrelle Revis. Revis is headed south as he passed a physical yesterday with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to complete the deal. The deal sends the Buccaneers 2013 first round pick, 13th overall, and a conditional third/fourth round pick in 2014. The pick is a fourth rounder but could become a third round pick if Revis is on the Buccaneers roster on the third day of the 2014 NFL league year. Revis signed a six-year, $96 million deal with Tampa making him the highest paid defensive back in NFL history but no money in the contract is guaranteed. More here.
