Roger Clemens has no plans to pitch again. At the moment.

The Houston Chronicle caught up with Roger Clemens at a golf tournament in South Carolina and asked him if, in the wake of his triumphant independent league game on Saturday, he plans to pitch again any time soon:

“Not at this point … That could change in a couple days, but right now we haven’t talked to any of the guys or anything like that.”

And you know that he’s telling the truth about that because he has never ever been convicting of lying. You can look it up.

I’d be willing to bet a great deal that he makes an appearance for the Astros in the series against the Cubs next month.

Manny Machado homers in return to Camden Yards

Padres third baseman made his much anticipated return to Camden Yards on Tuesday, his first appearance there as a visiting player after signing a 10-year, $300 million contract with the Padres in February. The Orioles’ faithful gave Machado a standing ovation as he came to the plate for his first at-bat. He would strike out looking.

In Machado’s next at-bat, he crushed a first-pitch Jimmy Yacabonis fastball out to left-center field for a solo homer, boosting the Padres’ lead to 5-1. It marked Machado’s 100th career homer at Camden Yards.

Machado now has 17 homers on the season along with 48 RBI, 47 runs scored, and a .279/.355/.503 triple-slash line.
