The Phillies were looking for a sweep and their first three-game winning streak of the year yesterday afternoon as they battled the Marlins during a business person special at 1:05 pm. Hamels was stellar allowing just one run on four hits over seven innings and striking out 11 Marlins. He left the game with the score knotted at one before the Phillies erupted for a five run inning, capped off by Domonic Brown's NL leading 18th homerun of the year. They would go on to win 6-1 and reach .500 for the first time in nearly two months. More here.
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson parted ways with super-agent Drew Rosenhaus earlier this week. Jackson has refused to comment publically about his next agent. Rosenhaus has filed a grievance against Jackson with the NFL Players' Association for $400,000 in unpaid loans. Rosenhaus claims that the loans date back to November 2009 when he was first hired by the 26 year old receiver until March 2012 when Jackson got his contract extension with the Eagles. More here.
The Bruins and Penguins faced off in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals last night in Boston with the Penguins looking to avoid falling behind 3-0 in the series. It did not take the Bruins long to jump out in front as David Krejci scored on Boston's first shot of the game just 1:42 into the opening frame. The Penguins would tie it in the second period when Chris Kunitz beat Tuuka Rask. It would be a back and forth game through the third period before heading to overtime. It was an incredible overtime with both teams getting chances but it remained scoreless. The second overtime was exactly like the first until Jaromir Jagr stripped Evgeni Malkin of the puck and Patrice Bergeron redirected a Brad Marchand pass past Tomas Vokoun to give the Bruins a 2-1 victory and a 3-0 series lead.
