Alfonso Soriano remains hot at the plate since trade to Yankees

When Alfonso Soriano was with the Chicago Cubs, everybody felt that he was not living up to his potential. But he was happy playing in the Windy City.

Playing on a losing team, even the top players sometimes can’t play up to their own standards more less those of fans and the media.

Since his return to the New York Yankees in a trade recently, he has eight home runs with 26 RBI’s, 18 in his past four games with 13 hits and has won several games with his bat.

Soriano always said he liked playing for the Yankees and never wanted to be traded to Texas in 2004 by New York.

Friday night in a 10-3 waxing of the Boston Red Sox, Soriano collected four RBI’s as the Yankees won for the fifth time in six games.

Brandt Snedeker captured the Canadian Open on Sunday, closing with a 2-under-par 70 for a three-stroke win.

It was his second PGA Tour title of 2013.

Dustin Johnson (70), William McGirt (68), Matt Kuchar (71) and Jason Bohn (71) tied for second place.

Johnson was tied for the lead after a birdie putt on No. 16. Then drove a shot out of bounds and hit the lip of a fairway bunker on his way to a triple bogey on the par-4 17th.

A graduate of Vanderbilt University, Snedeker took the lead on Saturday when second-round leader Hunter Mahan withdrew due to his wife going into labor. From there, Snedeker held on during the breezy final round at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario. Mahan and his wife, Kandi, gave birth on Sunday in Texas to a daughter, Zoe Olivia.

The 32-year-old Snedeker sunk two birdies and a bogey on the front nine. He birdied the par-4 10th to move to 16 under par but gave the shot back on the par-3 12th. He birdied the par-5 16th and parred the final two holes.

Wright State men’s basketball adds final piece for 2012-13: 6’6 Forward Jerran Young

 

The Wright State Raiders had waited for awhile for the final piece for 2012-13 to become official.

This past Friday, it all came together with the signing of 6-foot-6, 190-pound forward Jerran Young. Young is from McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas.

Young had verbally committed to Wright State back in April, but he had to finish summer classes before enrolling at the Fairborn, Ohio school.

Wright State was not the first choice of Young, a graduate of Cedar Hill High School in Texas. He played two seasons at McLennan. He originally committed to the University of Nebraska of the Big Ten, but when the Huskers changed coach’s, Young was released from his commitment.

Young is a winner having played on a state championship runner-up team in 2009 at Cedar Hill and was selected district defensive player of the year. He averaged 10 points, with 8 rebounds and 10 assists during his senior year in high school.

At McLennan as a freshman, his totals included 10.5 points, with 1.5 steals a game. In 2011-12, his totals improved to 16 points and 8 rebounds.

It took James Buescher 76 races to win his first NASCAR Truck Series race when he took the SFP 250 in Kansas back in April.

It did not take him long to earn his second victory. Count it, four attempts!

The 22-year-old from the state of Texas led for 119 of the 150 laps, including the final 43, en route to winning the 2012 Camping World Truck Series UNOH 225 at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky.

It was his second win at Kentucky Speedway, having been successful at the track in the ARCA race in 2009.

He became the series’ first two-time winner of 2012. Finishing second was Brad Keselowski followed by Ty Dillon, pole-sitter Matt Crafton and Timothy Peters.

At the start of the race, the temperature on the track was 117 degrees, with air temps of 98. It was the hottest air temperature ever for a Kentucky Speedway event, bypassing the 88 degree temperature for the Indy Car race in 2004.
