“I just thought it was a really well played game by us tonight,” head coach Mike Bianco said. “It was a clean game. A lot of guys got in for their first time either this year or in their career. Usually when that happens, there’s some good and bad but more good tonight.”

With the all-star break over and home field advantage going to the National League (more precisely Atlanta in this writer’s hopeful opinion) for the World Series, the second half of the major league baseball season is upon us. With a little more than two months of games still to be played and a high number of teams still in contention, the race for October should be incredibly fun to watch.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Almost as soon as it began, former baseball star Roger Clemens' perjury trial ended Thursday - in a mistrial the judge blamed on prosecutors and said a "first-year law student" would have known to avoid.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton left the question of a new trial up in the air. But he called a halt to the trial under way after prosecutors showed jurors evidence that he had ruled out - videotaped revelations that a teammate had said he'd told his wife Clemens confessed to using a drug.

As a lifetime .298 hitter who amassed 762 home runs, more than 500 stolen bases, and nearly 2,000 RBIs in his illustrious career, Barry Bonds was, arguably, one of the greatest hitters of all time.

As a lifetime .298 hitter who amassed 762 home runs, more than 500 stolen bases, and nearly 2,000 RBIs in his illustrious career, Barry Bonds was, arguably, one of the greatest hitters of all time.

But it is his involvement with BALCO rather than baseball that has forced Bonds back into the world of relevant headlines for the first time since 2007.
