Sunday Sports Wrap - May 25, 2008

Can the Lakers beat the Spurs at home? We’ll find out tonight! Go Lakers!

Plenty of baseball happens today all over the country. The New York Yankees continue to be the only team in their division that is under .500 and the Rays are still just a few games behind the Red Sox in second place. The Marlins are still doing rather well in their division also, a full game ahead of the Braves. Here in Southern California the Angels top their division while the Dodgers tail the Diamondbacks by 3.5 games. There is quite a bit of college baseball today also. USC visits Washington State, UCLA is at Cal, and Stanford is at Washington. And yes, there are more than Pac-10 games happening. Check here for your favorite division.

Only one MLS game occurs today – the Chicago Fire visit the New York Red Bulls. Chicago is currently third in the Eastern Division while New York is 5th.

In PGA Tour play today, the BMW PGA Championship has already finished. Miguel Angel Jimenez won in a play-off over Oliver Wilson. Phil Mickelson is in the lead at the Crowne Plaza Invitational and Bernhard Langer is on top at the PGA Seniors event.

Today in Sports History

1922 – Babe Ruth throws dirt on an umpire and goes after a heckler in the stands. He later said he didn’t mean to hit the ump but was serious about going after the fan. The fracas cost him a fine of $200 and he was suspended for a day.

1974 – Houston Astros SS Miguel Tejada was born in the Dominican Republic.
