Darryl Hamilton was a former Major League outfielder who played with several teams from 1988-2001.

Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Hamilton spent time with the Milwaukee Brewers (1988, 1990-95), Texas Rangers (1996), San Francisco Giants (1997-1998), Colorado Rockies (1998-1999) and New York Mets (1999-2001).

His career totals included a .291 batting average with 51 homers and 454 runs batted in, playing 1328 games. Was a ground ball hitter who rarely struck out.

A great fielder at all outfield positions, Hamilton recorded 2711 putouts, with 46 assists garnering a fielding percentage of .995 in 2771 total chances. He holds the American League records for consecutive errorless chances (541) and errorless games (229).

He played college baseball at Louisiana State University.

 

Hamilton’s life ended tragically at the age of 50.

On Sunday, June 21, 2015, Hamilton and girlfriend Monica Jordan were found dead in a Pearland, Texas residence, in what appeared to be a murder-suicide. Investigators said it appeared Hamilton had been shot more than once and Jordan died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Hamilton and Jordan’s 15 month-old child was found alive by police in the home. It was ruled a murder-suicide.

At the time of his death, he had been working for the MLB Network and MLB.com.

Hamilton was married twice to two celebrities. He was married to Access Hollywood anchor Shaun Robinson in 1994. He also was married to fashion model Ursaline Steinke in 2000, with whom he had two sons. Both marriages ended in divorce.

Washington Nationals ace pitcher Max Scherzer coming off a one-hit shutout, made the next step with a no-hitter in a 6-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

It was the Washington Nationals second no-hitter in its history.

His no-hitter joins that of  San Francisco Giants rookie Chris Hesson, who no-hit the New York Mets on June 9 at Citi Field.

The 30-year-old right-hander, was dominating in recording 26 outs pitching a perfect game up to that point.

With the Pirates’ Jose Tabata at the plate and two strikes, Scherzer hit him with a pitch. Most radio and TV reports and replays showed that Tabata, a right-handed batter was leaning out over the plate to get hit with the pitch.

The next batter was the same batter who led off the game with an out, Josh Harrison. Harrison flied out to left field to end the game and send the crowd of 41,104 fans at Nationals Park home happy knowing they witnessed a historical moment.

Scherzer, who is almost always pitch-efficient in his starts, only threw 15 pitches after two innings. For the complete game effort, he threw 106 pitches, 82 for strikes.

He finished with 10 strikeouts and improves his record to 8-5 on the season.

Losing pitcher for the Pirates was lefty Francisco Liriano, who is often the victim of lack of run support. He drops to 4-6.

 

Cueto rehab assignment, bullpen session goes well; faces NY Mets on Monday

This past Tuesday and Friday were good days for Cincinnati Reds ace starter Johnny Cueto in his bid to return to the team.

On Tuesday in a rehab start at Single-A Dayton, Cueto threw 58 pitches over five scoreless innings. He had no issues with his lat or the oblique muscle that became sore while he was on the disabled list.

Cueto pitched in the bullpen Friday for his regular side session, where he threw a total of 35 pitches.

Cueto is ready to return to the rotation from the disabled list Monday. Cueto, who has been out since April 15 with a strained right lat muscle, has been named as the starter for the series opener against at the New York Mets.

There is no doubt that the Reds will be watching Cueto very closely with a pitch count limit.

The New York Mets have found a replacement for traded Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey in their starting rotation.

The team has signed free-agent right-hander Shaun Marcum, who is 31-years-old.

Marcum was 7-4 with a 3.70 ERA in 21 starts for Milwaukee in 2012.

In his career, which also has a stop in Toronto, he is 57-36 with a 3.76 ERA and 746 strikeouts.

MLB slow in announcing future All-Star games

It has been known for sometime that the 2014 MLB All-Star Game has been awarded to the New York Mets and Citi Field.

Beyond that, who knows where the next games will be.

The 2014 game might go to the Minnesota Twins and Target Field. Every American League team with the exception of Tampa Bay has hosted an All-Star Game since the Twins hosted in 1985 at the Metrodome.

Baseball has been alternating leagues hosting the All-Star Game. But they may get away from that to get all of the newer stadiums in the rotation starting in 2015.
