The Phillies wrapped up their four game series with the Milwaukee Brewers yesterday at Miller Park as Jonathan Pettibone took the mound for Philadelphia. Pettibone got hit around as he allowed six runs (four earned) on four hits with two walks and four strikeouts in 5.1 innings of work. The Phillies used four pitchers and Justin De Fratus was the only one who did not allow a run. Humberto Quintero went deep for the Phillies to extend their home run streak to 14 games but there were no other highlights as they would go on to lose 9-1. More here.
The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs faced off in Game 2 of the NBA Finals last night. The two teams were even in the first quarter scoring 22 points apiece.

In the fourth they relied on LeBron James and Mario Chalmers as they cruised to a 103-84 victory. James had 17 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists while Chalmers led all scorers with 19 points.

The Chicago Bears did not get the kind of production from their 2011 first round pick that they expected (sounds like the Eagles, no?). Well, yesterday they cut bait with the pick as they sent former Wisconsin offensive lineman Gabe Carimi to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a sixth round pick. Carimi spent two injury riddled seasons in Chicago. The team projected Carimi as a guard despite drafting him as a tackle. More here.
