MLB — In his first return to the city where he played 11 years, Omar Vizquel's ninth-inning heroics — a suicide squeeze in the top of the inning, followed by a lead-saving backhanded stab in the bottom — gave the Giants a 3-2 win over the Indians, their first win in Cleveland since the 1954 World Series.  Wait a second.  Omar Vizquel is still alive? … Jason Varitek broke our of a 1-for-30 slump with the go-ahead single in a 4-run eighth, propelling the Red Sox to a 5-4 victory over the D-Backs and preserving the Sox' place at the top of the AL East, one game ahead of — Tampa Bay?  Am I reading this right? … Jerry Manuel's explosion (and expulsion) wasn't enough to keep the Mets from letting the crappy guys on Seattle play well, as the M's routed New York 11-0.  No Seattle aces were injured in the contest.

Wimbledon — Nobody of note lost in the early round of women's play; the biggest news was Maria Sharapova's shorts (more on that later).  On the men's side, 4th-seeded Nikolay Davydenko was upset in straight sets, but let's be honest here: I don't care, and neither do you.

College World Series — Fresno State's unlikely run continued, as the under-Bulldogs beat Georgia 19-10 to force a deciding Game 3 tonight.  Be sure to tune in to hear the soothing sounds of baseball on a hazy summer evening.  Ping!
