It has been quite awhile since Roberto Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona had won a game on the mound.

Yesterday, for the Tampa Bay Rays, he pitched effectively for six innings, allowed one earned run, three hits, three walks and seven strikeouts in an 8-1 win over the Oakland Athletics.

The win was his first since becoming Roberto Hernandez and he is 1-3 to start the 2013 season.

The victory was also his since September 20, 2011 when he pitched for the Cleveland Indians.

The 32-year-old right-hander has changed his life after completing a work program. He was arrested in the Dominican Republic in January of 2012 on false-identity charges. The charges were later dropped.

Hernandez has a career record of 54-72 with an ERA of 4,64 and 592 strikeouts.

Conference USA member Central Florida, one of Ohio State’s 2012 opponents, beat Ball State of the Mid-American Conference on Friday night in the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl, 38-17.

The game took place at St. Petersburg, Florida at Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball.

Bortles completed 22 of 33 passes without an interception.

Ball State, which finishes the season at 9-4, had high hopes of winning 10 games for only the third time in school history, but its usually high-scoring offense was held to a season-low point total by a swarming, speedy Knights defense. The Cardinals saw their six-game winning streak come to an end.

Bortles, who led the Knights to a 10-4 record, passed for 272 yards to become the first QB to throw for 3,000 yards since 2002. A solid runner, he also led the team on the ground, rushing nine times for a career-best 80 yards.

Cardinals quarterback Keith Wenning was 22 of 34 passing for 217 yards and two touchdowns.

B.J. Upton chooses Atlanta over Philadelphia


The Atlanta Braves have landed one of the top free agents of the 2012 off-season.

On Wednesday, they reached an agreement with former Tampa Bay Rays center fielder B.J. Upton to a fiver-year, $75.25 million contract.

Upton, who’s brother Justin plays for the Arizona Diamondbacks, was the second overall pick in the 2002 draft. He made his debut with the Rays at age 19 and spent six full seasons with the team.

B.J. and Justin are the only two brothers in MLB history to be selected in the number one and two slot of the draft (in separate years). The Upton brothers are also the first brothers to make it into the 20-20 club (both have hit 20 home runs and have 20 stolen bases in a season).

The 28-year-old Upton, replaces Michael Bourn, another free agent. He gives the Braves with top-line defense and a much-needed right-handed bat in a lefty dominated lineup.

He batted .246 with a career-low .298 on-base percentage in 2012, but clubbed 28 home runs with 78 RBI’s and 31 stolen bases in 37 attempts.

Upton chose the Braves over NL East rival Philadelphia, whose needed a CF to replace Shane Victorino to the Dodgers last season. Victorino is also a free-agent this off-season.

Indians place Hagadone on disqualified list


The Cleveland Indians did not like the way LHP Nick Hagadone hurt himself over the weekend and he has been placed on the Minor League disqualified list.

The team made the move on Sunday.

Indians general manager Chris Antonetti called Hagadone’s injury a significant one to his pitching hand when he,  punched a wall after a bad relief appearance on Friday night.

The incident happened during a 10-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Hagadone gave up two runs in two-thirds of an inning.
Most fans do not understand what the disqualified list is, because it is rarely used. The disqualified list is used when a player violates his contract, which happens when a player is injured in activities outside of normal baseball activity. While on the DQ list a player, in this case, Hagadone,  cannot accrue service time, will not be paid and is treated as suspended.
It is expected that Hagadone and his agent will appeal to the Players union.
