Starting Nine: Trout goes cycling
Many things are happening -- on Cut4, in baseball and out there in the rest of the world. Here are nine you need to know about today:
1. Mike Trout unlocked another achievement in Tuesday's 12-0 win over the Mariners , hitting for MLB's first cycle of the year:
2. Four teams -- the Orioles, Braves, Rockies and Giants -- all won in walkoff fashion in the 10th inning:
3. Jose Quintana flirted with his first career no-hitter on Tuesday, fending off the Red Sox until David Ortiz singled in the seventh. You'll get 'em next time, JQ.
4. crazy high school jump
5. The NFL announced Tuesday that San Francisco will host Superbowl L (50) and Houston Superbowl LI (51, for those of you playing along at home).
6. In honor of Bobby Cox's 72nd birthday, Matt Monagan rounded up 20 great photos and clips of the short-fused skipper arguing with umpires. An amuse bouche:
7. We thought prom was pretty fun, but we didn't have Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow ragging on our dance moves. (Then again, we didn't get to party on a boat in McCovey Cove, so I guess we're even with these kids.)
8. The Cleveland Cavaliers may have won the first pick in the NBA Draft Lottery, but our hearts are with Utah Jazz president Randy Rigby, who drew the 14th pick:
9. In a new teaser for Larry David's upcoming Clear History, the proudly bald Curb Your Enthusiasm star is almost unrecognizable with long hair and a full beard.
How do we feel about this? Well...
