Quick Hits: Monday, June 23rd, 2014

The first seven on the Mets batting order all had multi-hit games as the New York Mets defeat the Miami Marlins 11-5 to win the four game series three games to one.

Jonathon Niese pitched six innings, giving up three runs that came in a rough 6th inning that started with Curtis Granderson misplaying a fly ball that turned into a double.  Niese couldn't get a strike three call that turned into a walk.  And Daniel Murphy couldn't field a ball heading towards him, allowing the third run to score.

Finally Niese was able to settle down and got Derek Dietrich to strike out to end the inning.

The Mets are off before starting a two game interleague series against the Oakland A's on Tuesday.

The Baltimore Orioles spoiled the Yankees celebration on Old Timer's Day quickly as Jonathan Schoop homered to left to give the Orioles a 1-0 lead in the 2nd inning.

He would get another RBI as the O's won the rubber game 8-0.

It was only the 2nd loss for Mashiro Tanaka this season, giving up three runs in seven innings pitched as his earned run average blossomed to 2.11

The Yankees kick off a three game series at Toronto on Monday.

The Glens Falls Golden Eagles score 5 runs in the bottom 8th as they extend their win streak to three games after their 8-4 win over the Adirondack Trail Blazers

The Golden Eagles rally started after a Greg Wasikowski throwing error that allowed John Lynn to reach base with one out in the eighth.  He would take second on the error, and after a pair of walks loaded the bases, the Golden Eagles got their lead when Garrett Bernardo singled home two runs and Brennan Price brought home two more.

John Leiter gets credit for the win and Tyler Ehlers struck out two on his way to his first save.

The Golden Eagles have a chance to even up their record as they travel to Mohawk Valley tonight.

The U.S. Men's Soccer team was just seconds away from clinching their spot in the Knockout Stage, when Silvestre Varela headed in a Cristiano Rinaldo cross in the 95th minute, drawing even with the U.S..

It was the last hope for the Portuguese in the depth of the final minute of stoppage time, knowing that a loss would make them and Ghana ineligible for the Knockout Stage.

The four teams finish the 1st Round at Noon.  The U.S. face team Germany, and Portugal faces Ghana.

Schedules for the 2014-15 NHL season are out.  Here's the schedule for the Rangers, the Devils, the Islanders, the Buffalo Sabres, the Montreal Candiens and the Boston Bruins.  And for those new Calgary Flames fans here in Adirondack Flames country, here's their schedule.

And Carmello Anthony has opted out of his extra year with the New York Knicks, making him a free agent.
