Bryan Stow, who has been in a coma since being beaten by Dodgers fans after an March 31 game at Dodger Stadium, is opening his eyes, neurosurgeon Dr. Geoff Manley said Wednesday.

Manley reported that Stow has been weaned off one of five anti-seizure medications he was on since going into a coma and that his brain had showed no seizure activity in 30 hours of continuing monitoring.

Manley says these developments are positive but he could not predict Stow’s chances for recovery.

The Dodgers earlier Wednesday added $100,000 to the reward pot for infomation leading to the capture of the men who beat Stow.

The Red Sox are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1967 “Impossible Dream” team during Wednesday night’s series finale against the Cardinals. Jordan Leandre took the mound to throw out the first pitch. With past players lined up behind him, Leandre wound up and fired to home… juuuuust a bit outside. The ball hit photographer Tony Capobianco right in the family jewels.

To his credit, Capobianco had a sense of humor about it:

Padres first baseman Wil Myers hit an RBI single off of Nick Pivetta in the bottom of the fourth inning of Wednesday afternoon’s game, giving his team a 1-0 lead. He then proceeded to steal second base, then third base, and finally home on a double-steal, scoring the Padres’ second run.

Per CSN Philly’s Marshall Harris, it’s the first time a player has stolen all three bases in the same inning since Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon in 2011. Indeed, on July 1 that year, Gordon stole all three bases against Angels pitcher Bobby Cassevah.

Myers is currently batting .238/.322/.459 with 24 home runs, 59 RBI, 61 runs scored, and 14 stolen bases in 491 plate appearances this season.
