The Southern Ohio Copperheads won 9-4 over the Lake Erie Monarchs last night. Caleb Swartz pitched five innings and allowed 3 earned runs to pick up his second win of the year. Ohio University’s Tyler Finkler hit two triples, a double, drove in three runs and scored twice. The victory was the Copperheads fifth win in a row and pushed their record to 15-14 overall on the season. Matt Mikolajczak tossed six strong innings, and the Snakes posted a 4-2 win at Lake Erie on Monday night. Mikolajczak, who pitches for Ohio University in the spring, continued his strong season. He improved to 4-0 on the year after giving up six hits and two runs while striking out nine. Southern Ohio will be back in action Thursday night at Bob Wren Stadium against the Licking County Settlers at 7:30.
Helping send Derek Jeter out a winner in his last All-Star game appearance, Mike Trout drove in two runs with a triple and a double to lead the American League past the National League 5-3 on Tuesday night. Jeter started his 14th and final midsummer gathering of the game’s best with a vintage opposite-field double, following an ovation from the Target Field crowd of more than one minute. The Yankees captain went 2 for 2 and was removed to another roar from the fans in the top of the fourth inning. Max Scherzer picked up the victory with a scoreless inning, and Twins closer Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth for the save in front of his home crowd to again give the AL home-field advantage for the World Series
A person familiar with the negotiations says free agent Mike Miller has agreed to a 2-year, $5.5 million contract with the Cavaliers, re-uniting him with superstar LeBron James. Miller reached the agreement with the Cavs on Tuesday, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not commented on the deal. Miller was teammates for three seasons with James in Miami. The 34-year-old gives the Cavs another outside weapon and a piece to help James, who signed a two-year, $42 million contract on Saturday.
Two down, one to go. And for Justin Rose, it’s the biggest one of all. Rose heads into the British Open as probably the hottest player in golf after winning back-to-back titles for the first time, at the Quicken Loans National at Congressional and the Scottish Open. Back at his career-high ranking of No. 3, he is playing as well as he ever has, and the experience of being a major champion — at the U.S. Open at Merion in 2013 — makes his case even more persuasive. The third major championship of the season gets underway tomorrow at the Royal Liverpool golf course in Hoylake, England.
