Tuesday night has yet another pitchers duel in store for baseball fans.

With the NLCS tied up at a game a-piece, Matt Cain will take the hill against Cole Hamels for Game 3 at 4:19pm ET this evening at AT&T Park, where a sell-out crowd will furiously wave their towels and sing their version of Don't Stop Believing in search of their first pennant since they cheered for Barry Bonds eight years ago.


Not My Beautiful Face!

If no fans were at Dolphin Stadium to see Brett Carroll smash into the outfield wall on an Aaron Rowand homer Friday, did it really happen? Okay, so there were a few folks at the ballpark. But that would've been way sweeter had he actually come close to even catching the ball.

Eh, he's batting like, .063 anyhow.

Aaron Rowand Gets a Sweet Deal

Objectifying men is awesome.

Aaron Rowand -- or Bacon Pants as The Ladies... affectionately call him -- has agreed to a five-year, $60 million contract with the San Francisco Giants.


Aaron Rowand is Your Hero

Aaron Rowand and the Philadelphia Phillies avoided a huge collapse Monday night and gained some much-needed ground on the New York Mets, whose fans are nearing the brink of suicide watch after a fourth straight loss.

Rowand prevented the tying and go-ahead runs with a spectacular tumbling catch at the warning track to end the eighth inning, as the Phillies out-played the St. Louis Cardinals 13-11, damn near blowing an 11-run lead earlier in the game.
"I'm telling you, you never have enough runs," says Phillies manager Charlie Manuel.
The Phillies pulled within 2.5 games of the NL East-leading Mets, who committed four more errors. Including their six mistakes on Sunday, the Mets managed to set a franchise record for 10 errors over just two games.

So, don't count the Phillies out just yet! With 12 games left to play in their season, they are sitting at a do-able 1.5 games behind the San Diego Padres in the NL Wild Card race, with the Los Angeles Dodgers hot on their trail.
