    St. Louis Cardinals prospect John Kilichowski will forever be the answer to a trivia question no one thought would exist even two months ago. During Wednesday’s instructional league game against the New York Mets, he was the pitcher who allowed a home run to Tim Tebow in Tebow’s first ever professional at-bat. On the first pitch he saw, Tebow took a high-and-outside fastball from Kilichowski and basically tomahawked it over the fence in left-center field.

  • UFC Vet Held At Gunpoint For Alleged Hit-And-Run

    Somebody just got run over in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and believe it or not, the driver was not former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Instead, it appears to be ex-UFC welterweight Henry Martinez, who is accused of plowing through a bicyclist on I-25 and leaving the scene of an accident, in addition to driving on a revoked license, according to KRQE.com. But he didn't get very far. That's because a concerned citizen, who just so happened to be packing heat, was able to track down the inactive mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter and hold him at gunpoint until police arrived. Fortunately, the victim was treated at the scene and is expected to make a full

The Tigers, however, are a game back in the Wild Card race and will likely be playing for their playoff lives until Sunday afternoon. Which means that today’s game may very well matter a lot for the Tigers as well as the Blue Jays and Orioles. Which means . . . Congratulations, Indians. As a reward for the Wild Card contenders not being able to put the others behind them, you could get a day off taken away from you before the playoffs! Which stinks, but when you think about it, it could also have some

  • Report: Coyotes’ Rieder is considering KHL, among other options

According to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, those options include taking the Coyotes offer, requesting a trade, signing in the KHL, or sitting out.

  • Roster crunch coming for Islanders

    The Islanders are going to have some tough decisions to make ahead of Opening Night, and they only made it harder on themselves on Wednesday. The signing of Dennis Seidenberg was a shrewd one. Johnny Boychuk's former blue line mate is a seasoned veteran and a proven winner. It's more than worth the $1 million to fill that Lubomir Visnovsky/Marek Zidlicky/Brian Strait role as the seventh defenseman with someone like Seidenberg. And with the almost 33-year old Boychuk already banged up before the exhibition season even got started, it gives the Isles a great way to not only spell him, but provide some insurance if Ryan Pulock shows any signs of regression. That being said, it also brought the number
