- April 18, 2017

His tenth-inning double plated Bryce Harper all the way from first base, allowing Washington to improve to 6-4. Last year he had two wild pitches all year. When you watch Murphy dig in though and place that picture-perfect swing on a pitch, it's not hard to understand why those results have followed. That's another way to give up a run, with a walk.

But Harden helped pull Houston even by the break, and Minnesota failed to reclaim the spark that fostered hope. (more...)

Willett finds price tag comes with Masters jacket
- April 08, 2017

The start of The Masters is just a day away. It was his performance on the second day that really grabbed the headlines, however, and it was his second shot at the first hole that had people talking.
