Troy Tulowitzki suffers shoulder injury

The Rockies, flying high atop the NL West with a 15-9 record, were deflated in this afternoon’s game against the Diamondbacks as their star shortstop left this afternoon’s game due to a left shoulder strain. Tulowitzki slid into home plate awkwardly in the top of the first inning and made contact with Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero. He was replaced in the bottom of the third by Jonathan Herrera.

Tulowitzki is relieved his injury isn’t serious.

Along with great defense, Tulowitzki had been very productive at the plate with a .312 average and six home runs, so the Rockies are happy they won’t be losing his bat for any significant amount of time. They know that story well after losing him for the final four months last season due to a groin injury.

The Yankees Twitter account roasts the Red Sox account on the anniversary of “The Steal”

Today is the 13th anniversary of one of the most exciting and iconic plays in postseason history. On October 17, 2004, the Yankees and the Red Sox faced off in Game 4 of the ALCS. The Yankees had a 3-0 lead in the series and held a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the ninth. The Red Sox were three outs from being eliminated by the Yankees. Again.

Kevin Millar led off the inning facing Mariano Rivera and worked the greatest closer in baseball history for a walk. Terry Francona inserted Dave Roberts as a pinch runner. Everyone in the building knew that Roberts had one job: get to second base and scoring position. Despite everyone knowing it was coming, Roberts swiped second base. He’d come around to score, the Sox won the game in 12 innings, would win the next three and the World Series, completing the greatest comeback in postseason history and ending an 86-year championship drought.

Understandably, the Red Sox wanted to remember that wonderful day today. So they tweeted about it:

The Yankees, however, weren’t gonna let that one go by:
