Game On! Sports Live Thread 7/27/13

Something for everyone this Saturday [Live Sports Thread]

7/27/13 in MLB   |   Eric_   |   7716 respect

Blog Photo - Game On! Sports Live Thread 7/27/13Things may have been pretty sparse last weekend, but today is a very busy day in sports. Baseball as always has the top perch in the summer, and today brings up several important matchups. That's far from all though. The UFC on FOX returns this evening. I'll let those with more knowledge of that tell you all about it. There's also action at the World's Race Course, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, as it is Brickyard 400 weekend. There's also golf, tennis (as the US Open Series begins this week), soccer, boxing, and much more. Even bowling.

Here is today’s schedule. All times are eastern and are pm unless otherwise indicated. Personal picks are in bold.

If you're wondering why so few things are personal picks, it's because I am going to this evening's Red Sox-Orioles game, and most everything starts after I leave for the game. Go O's! Q it up all day today with whatever you’re watching.

and Ortiz exploding...

Chris Archer (Tampa's 6th starter essentially) threw a Maddux against the Yankees. A Maddux is a complete game shutout on less than 100 pitches.
