The Blue Jays scored seven runs in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Angels for a rally capped by Steve Pearce’s walk-off grand slam to life the Jays to victory. It was the second walk-off grand slam for Pearce in four days.

Pudge Rodriguez is one of the most decorated catchers in major league history. The former Texas Rangers backstop has 13 All-Star nominations and 14 Gold Gloves, both of which are the most for any catcher in MLB history. The Puerto Rico native is entering the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.
Retiring in 2012, Rodriguez turned a promising beginning as one of the best catcher prospects into a Hall of Fame career playing for the Rangers, Yankees, Tigers, Marlins, Astros and Nationals. He will enter the Hall of Fame as a Ranger.
Rodriguez was named AL MVP in the 1999 season, with a .332 batting average, 35 home runs and 133 RBIs for Texas. Rodriguez later helped the Florida Marlins to a World Series title in 2003.
Hopefully we can continue to do the right thing as a whole. Obviously there’s going to be people that don’t follow the same suit. Don’t be those folks.
Neo-Nazis, skinheads, Ku Klux Klan members and other white supremacist groups staged a rally Friday to protest the city of Charlottesville’s plans to remove a Robert E. Lee statue from a park. On Saturday, a 20-year-old man drove his car through a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a woman and wounding at least 19 others. Hours later, two Virginia state troopers were killed when the helicopter they were flying in as part of a large-scale police effort at the rally crashed into a wooded area outside the city.
