– Defensivamente, o Knicks seguiu entre os times que menos sofreram pontos dentro do garrafão, com 39.5 por jogo, e teve a sexta melhor marca da temporada.

CBS San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run homer among his three RBIs and finished a double shy of the cycle, powering the San Francisco Giants past the Milwaukee Brewers 15-5 on Sunday to match a season high with their sixth straight win.

Madison Bumgarner (16-9) followed up his one-hit gem Tuesday against Colorado with seven strikeouts in six innings to win his third straight start. The left-hander finished August at 4-1 with a 1.57 ERA.

Hunter Pence extended his NL-leading hitting streak to 13 games with a third-inning RBI double, the first of his four hits. He doubled again in the fifth and added a seventh-inning triple.

The Brewers lost their season-high fifth straight road game and dropped into a tie for the NL Central lead with St. Louis. It’s the first time since July 20 that they don’t have sole possession of the division lead.

Stories From The Stove

016Yesterday we went walking and found these blackberries, the red picked as an enticement to the black ones to gel. I made a rather flouncy-sounding mĂ»rĂ©e with them – a kind of jam but without the staggering amount of sugar. ‘Serve it tepid with a grainy cake,’ is Jane Grigson’s rather dowdy instruction, though I found the marriage of mĂ»rĂ©e and yoghurt far more appealing. You can keep the jam in the fridge and be none the wiser. There are umpteen blackberry recipes around, and so it is easy to feel overpowered and then give up, eat them in a desultory way and stain your breathable ‘windproof’ pockets into the bargain. Your hands will also look as if they have been attacked by a feral dog.

But this, I have discovered, is part of the joy. Because there are also windfall apples to be scooped up. And elderberries and rosehips

VIDEO: Jorge Soler hits two long home runs in third major league game

Featured Image -- 5382

HardballTalk

We saw Cubs rookie outfielder Jorge Soler go deep in his first major league at-bat on Wednesday night. Well, last night, the 22-year-old delivered his first career multi-homer game. He first hit a game-tying solo homer off Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller in the seventh inning before launching a two-run blast in the eighth.

Check out the impressive power display below:

The sound off Soler’s bat on that second home run was something special. Just in case you were curious (and I know you are), the first one traveled an estimated 420 feet to dead-central while the second went even further, at an estimated 438 feet.

Soler finished the night 3-for-3 with a walk. He’s hitting .636 (7-for-11) over his first three games in the majors. The Cubs might have something here.

Road Trip 2014 Day 1

Hi Everyone – I’m on another road trip to photograph America’s abandoned theaters. This time I’m traveling up the west coast of the United States. Keep checking back over the next week for more updates!

The UC Theatre originally opened in 1917 in Berkeley, California. It closed in March 2001, and was designated a landmark the following year. Plans are underway to turn the theater in to a live music venue. For more information check out their website and facebook pages.
