Last night the Phillies were looking to bounce back after their tough loss on Monday at the hands of the Marlins. Tyler Cloyd got the start for the Phillies. He pitched well going seven innings allowing two runs on eight hits while striking out five. The Phillies got a solo home run from Delmon Young, two RBI from Dom Brown, and three RBI from Ryan Howard, who returned to the lineup after missing two games with a sore left knee. The Phillies would cruise to a 7-3 victory and look to win the series tonight with Cliff Lee on the mound. More here.
The NBA held its annual draft lottery last night in New York City. The Sixers stayed true to form and will select 11th overall while the Washington Wizards jumped the Charlotte Bobcats to go from eighth overall to third overall. The Cleveland Cavaliers, behind good luck charm Nick Gilbert, son of owner Dan Gilbert, leaped the Orlando Magic to select first overall in June. This is the second time in three years that the Cavaliers will select first overall. They took Kyrie Irving first overall in 2011. More here.
The New York Rangers were looking to avoid falling into the dreaded 3-0 hole against the Boston Bruins last night at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers struck first less than four minutes into the second period when Taylor Pyatt beat Tuukka Rask. Johnny Boychuk would tie it up early in the third period. The Bruins would take the lead with 3:31 left when Henrik Lundqvist stopped a bouncing puck but the puck bounced to the side of the net where Daniel Paille scored to give the Bruins a 2-1 lead which they would hold on to. The win puts Boston up 3-0 in the series. More here.
