Midday Recap 04/03: Missed Perfection, Penguins get Sabred

So the Mets were off on Tuesday.

Didn't mean anything else was going on.

Yu misses perfection
For 26 batters, Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish was perfect.  After a 2-pitch 9th inning, the final Houston Astros batter came up with the chance to put an end to Darvish's perfect run.  Marwin Gonzalez broke up the bid with a single that went right between Darvish's legs for a base hit.  

Penguins get Sabred
The main storyline for the National Hockey League this shortened season has been streaks.  First, it was the Chicago Blackhawks picking up from where they left off last season and extending their regulation point streak to 30 games before taking a regulation loss to the Colorado Avalanche.  The Columbus Blue Jackets got hot themselves helping improve their push for a playoff spot.  And the Pittsburgh Penguins went perfect in all of March, capping together a 15 game win streak.  But like how they ended February, they started April with a loss as they fell to the Buffalo Sabres 4-1.

Mike Rice
And by now, you've heard the story about Rutgers Men's Basketball coach, Mike Rice.  He was fired this morning after a video of him throwing basketballs at his players, pushing and shoving them and using racial slurs in practice surfaced.  Originally, Rice earned only a three game suspension plus a fine for his conduct, but then once the video came to public view, brought about calls for his termination.

Mets Tonight
Don't forget the Mets are on 1230 FOX Sports Radio tonight as they host the San Diego Padres in the middle of their three game series.  Matt Harvey hopes to start his season on a high note, overcoming the decision he took in his third game last year at San Diego when he allowed 8 hits in 5 innings pitched, earning 5 runs in a losing decision.
