Congratulations to Roberta Vinci in her unexpected win over Grand Slam champ Serena Williams. Itwas not meant to be for the younger Williams sister. Now we'll see who will win the Open.
MLB edges closer to the end of the season for quite a few teams. From the postponed games from Thursday, I picked the Blue Jays and Cubs and was right about both results. Woo-hoo! Here are my results from Friday’s outings. With two games either suspended or postponed, I’ll have to recap when they’re played.
1. Athletics at Rangers Rangers
2. Cubs at Phillies Cubs
3. Blue Jays at Yankees Blue Jays
4. Royals at Orioles Royals were stunned by the Orioles.
5. Brewers at Pirates Pirates
6. Tigers at Indians Indians - postponed
7. Cardinals at Reds Cardinals - suspended
8. Nationals at Marlins Marlins
9. Red Sox at Rays Red Sox
10. Mets at Braves Mets
11. Twins at White Sox White Sox
12. Cubs and Phillies (double-header) Phillies
13. Dodgers at Diamondbacks Dodgers

So many matchups are laughable, and I just won’t waste time with annihilation plans. Okay, I’ll mention a couple but abstain from others.
- Oregon State visits Michigan. Beavers and wolverines don’t mix it up usually. Michigan notches their first win of the season.
- USF heads over to Florida State to be obliterated. Tsk. I want to be wrong. Please make me wrong.
- Hawaii at Ohio State means an ugly one-sided game in favor of the Buckeyes.
- Oklahoma heads over to Tennessee for some “Rocky Top” fun. Tennessee upsets OU.
- Texas A&M hosts Ball State in College Station and ends with a win.
- The Green Battle commences when Oregon plays Michigan State. Sparty has duck soup for dinner.
- LSU takes on conference rival Mississippi State and makes the Bulldogs pay.
- Boise State Broncos tame the BYU Cougars.
