Quick Hits: Tuesday, June 24th

The Toronto Blue Jays score six in the second inning, capped by Adam Lind's three-run home run, as they beat the New York Yankees 8-3.

Chase Whitley gave up all eight runs in only 3 1/3rd innings pitched, as he was dealt his first loss of the season.  Mark Teixeria had a solo home run in the fourth inning.

David Phelps will try to turn the tide tonight for the Yankees, who have lost three straight.  He'll opposite Mark Buehrle for the Blue Jays.

The Mets had a night off on Monday, but announced the return of Travis d'Arnaud.

d'Arnaud is expected to play tonight as the Mets begin a quick two-game interleague series against the Oakland Athletics.  The A's come into town with the best record in baseball, and will have former Met 1st Round pick Scott Kazmir on the mound.

Kazmir has won the last three straight starts, including a seven inning affair on Thursday when he punched out eight Red Sox on the A's way to a 4-2 victory.

Bartolo Colon will take the mound for the Mets.  In his last start, Colon started what has become a part of the clubhouse culture for the Mets - the towel rally wave.  Mets players were seen waving those towels when Colon belted out a hit down the left field line in his last start in St. Louis for his first base hit since 2005.  He would later score the tying run that helped lift the Mets to victory over the Cardinals.

It will be Zack Wheeler on the mound for the Mets on Wednesday, facing $1 man Brad Mills for the A's.

Felix Hernandez gets the run support he needs as the Seattle Mariners explode to a 12-3 win over the Boston Red Sox.

The Mariners used a six-run fourth inning to take the lead from the Red Sox for good, chasing starter John Lackey from the game after 3 2/3rds.  He got tagged for seven runs, all earned, and Chris Capuano surrendered five runs.

Hernandez pitched seven innings, only giving up two runs while striking out six.

In case you missed it, the Adirondack Flames have a new coach.

Ryan Huska was announced during a press conference in Calgary on Monday to be the first leader of the Adirondack Flames.  Huska comes from the Kelowna Rockets, where he led them to a franchise best 57-11-4 record last year.

Breaking this morning, LeBron James has opted out of his deal with the Miami Heat, making him a free agent.

And the Glens Falls Golden Eagles three game win streak is over after they fall to the Mohawk Valley Diamond Dogs 12-6.  They travel to Amsterdam tonight to face the league's hottest team, the Amsterdam Mohawks.  The Mohawks extended their win streak to nine last night, bouncing back from a 2-6 start.
