Mets' K-Rod arrested for assaulting in-law

Following a scuffle with his father-in-law at Citi Field late Wednesday night, Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez was charged with third-degree assault, according to police.

 

The altercation resulted in Rodriguez' arrest and holding at the ballpark early Thursday, while his father-in-law landed in a hospital with a scraped face and a bump on his head.

 

Several security guards, as well as women and children, were around the the clubhouse after the Mets lost to the Rockies, 6-2, when Rodriguez' father-in-law was identified with a swelling over his right eyebrow. Rodriguez did not pitch in the loss, which dropped the Mets below .500.

 

Rodriguez, who signed a three-year, $37 million contract with the Mets after posting a record 62 saves with the Angels in 2008, is 4-2 with 25 saves and a 2.24 ERA this season.

Mashup: Pavin clashes with golf reporter

Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin got into a heated confrontation with Golf Channel reporter Jim Gray Wednesday afternoon after denying Gray’s report that he guaranteed Tiger Woods a spot on the U.S. team. Following a press conference at which Pavin called Gray’s report “incorrect,” the two reportedly stood nose-to-nose and Gray called Pavin a liar, saying, “You’re going down.” Responded Pavin: “You’re full of it.”

 

Also in the news, Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez was arrested Wednesday night and charged with assaulting his father-in-law at the team’s family lounge following New York’s latest loss. It was the latest in a string of behavioral issues for K-Rod.

Sox close wild card gap with win

TORONTO -- The Red Sox drew within 3 1/2 games of Tampa Bay for the lead in the American League wild card race thanks to a 10-1 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday night at Rogers Centre. The 10-run, 14-hit attack was the most offense the Sox had mustered since their 14-3 rout of the Jays on July 9 in Toronto.

 

Pacing the Sox' offensive display was Bill Hall, who had his first two-home run game since 2008, giving him 15 for the season. Hall also had an RBI single, giving him three hits, only matched in the Sox lineup by Mike Lowell (3-for-4). Also going deep for the Red Sox were J.D. Drew and Adrian Beltre, both of whom contributed to a five-run fifth inning that drove Toronto starter Shaun Marcum from the game.

 

Not to be outdone was Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, who managed to allow three runs or less while going at least seven innings for his fourth straight start. This time Buchholz only allowed one first-inning run...

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
