– The situation continues to get worse in Ferguson, Missouri, more than a week after African-American teen Michael Brown was shot to death by a white Ferguson police officer.
“What’s going on in Ferguson?” Callahan asked.
Joked Dennis: “A Market Basket is closing down in Ferguson, I think.”
In an effort to quell the rioting and unrest in the St. Louis suburb, Missouri governor Jay Nixon ordered in the National Guard on Sunday night. Protestors have shot at and thrown Molotov cocktails at police during the many riots and standoffs in the aftermath of Brown’s death.
Said Dennis: “I threw a snowball at a cop car once, that’s as bad as I got.”

AROUND THE WEB:
– Jon Lester‘s winning streak ended at seven Sunday night with a 4-3 loss to the Braves, and it was costly for the Athletics, who could have regained first place after surrendering the American League West lead they had held since April 28 a day earlier.
The A’s have lost seven of their last eight games and are percentage points behind the Angels, who also lost Sunday.
Lester allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits in six-plus innings. He had been 3-0 with a 2.49 ERA in his first three starts with Oakland since his trade from Boston, and he had not lost since a June 7 defeat in Detroit while pitching for the Red Sox. He had allowed only one home run in his previous 11 starts — none with Oakland — but gave up two Sunday in Atlanta.
Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.
The left-hander didn’t get much offensive support aside from two home runs from Wellesley’s Nate Freiman.
“Guys are competing, we just aren’t getting results right now,” Lester said. “The times that we need to get a guy in, we’re just not doing it. The times we need to make a pitch, we’re not doing it. This team’s too good to stay in this funk.”
Said A’s manager Bob Melvin: “This is really the first bad road trip we’ve had this year. This was not a good trip. So we’ve got to get home and we’ve got to regroup. It will be good to get home in front of our crowd. They’re usually good for us.”
– Umpire Tony Randazzo clearly does not care for Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon, and he’s not shy about letting him know.
“I was most upset that I got thrown out of the ballgame, and [Randazzo] thought it was me that was saying something and it wasn’t me,” McClendon said. “Then when I went out there to ask why I was thrown out, he said, ‘I’ve seen your act before.’ ”
Added McClendon: “I don’t think that was called for. That’s not fair. If you think I said something about a ball or strike, throw me out of the game. I get that. But to talk about past history, that’s not fair. It is what it is. It’s over with. Just move on.”
However, it only got worse. On Sunday, McClendon was tossed after Randazzo, working at third base, objected to a seated McClendon waving his hand dismissively following an appeal on a check swing that went the Tigers’ way. McClendon appeared to not realize he had been ejected.
Maddon voiced his disappointment after Saturday’s 3-2 loss in which Jeter had the game-winning RBI single in the top of the ninth before a rare sellout crowd of just over 31,000.
“It’s great that it’s sold out,” Maddon said. “And I understand that the people like Derek Jeter,. But you’ve got to come out and root for the Rays, too, you understand. I mean, I totally understand what’s going on. But I’m not going to sit here and defend all of that noise in the Yankees‘ favor in our ballpark. I’m not going to defend that. So we’re going to come out and root for the Rays. We’d appreciate that.”
