In the majors today -the Orioles made it two in a row over Kansas City this afternoon whipping the Royals 10-to-nothing at Camden Yards. Melvin Mora and Marty Cordova each hit 3 run homers. The Orioles are at the 500 mark for the first time since the opening week of the season.
[SUPER=03-New York, NY/YES-MLB;]

In New York, the Yankees blew a 5 to nothing lead and lost to the Mariners 9-to-5. The Ms got 4 runs in the top of the 9th including this one off Ruben Sierra's hit. Marianno Rivera is too slow getting off the mound and the Yanks lose it.

As you saw earlier in the newscast, the Virginia Tech Baseball program retired former player Johnny Oates jersey number this afternoon. The Hokies then took the field to face U-Conn in an afternoon doubleheader at English Field in Blacksburg.

After the ceremony, Oates -- the former Baltimore Oriole and Texas Ranger manager -- had a seat right behind home plate to watch some of the action between the Hokies and Huskies. U-Conn tried to get something going in the second inning as Mike Leonard lines a base hit into center field. But, the Huskies had little luck in pushing runs across the plate today. Tech pitcher Joe Saunders records a strike out to end the inning. Tech sweeps the doubleheader 6-to-3 and 7-to-1. They'll play a single game Sunday at Noon.

and yesterday morning on the other side of Route 419, the Cave Spring National League made Roy a part of its Hometown Heroes ceremony. Roanoke County fireman Craig Sellers from Company 3 and Roanoke County policeman Frank Wilkins were recognized as heroes in the Community.
