Albert Pujols stuns the poor Cubbies in the 10th, hitting a walk-off homer off righty Rodrigo Lopez. Cubs starter Carlos Zambrano had no problem voicing his opinion on how bad his ballclub is, saying they are “playing like a Triple-A team”. The Cubs offense is stagnant, scoring two runs or fewer in five of the last eleven games. Albert Pujols hit two game winning home runs in consecutive days to complete the sweep of the Cubs. The only other St. Louis player to do that was Hall of Famer Stan Musial in 1948. Saying these two teams are currently on opposite ends of the baseball spectrum would be an understatement.
One day after stunning the world of Tennis by beating top ranked Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer once again falters on clay. Roger Federer met Rafael Nadal Sunday at Roland Garros for a much anticipated rematch on Federer’s worst enemy, clay. Nadal earned his 10th major title and sixth French Open beating Federer 7-5, 7-6 (3), 5-7, 6-1. Watching Federer and Nadal is always riveting. Federer is 14-1 in Grand Slam finals with opponents other than Nadal. The only time he won the french open, he didn’t face Nadal. But, Nadal does not boast about his domination of Federer on clay. Instead, the two share a friendly rivalry and the utmost respect for one another.
The dreaded Miami Heat took a 2-1 lead in the NBA finals over the Dallas Mavericks.Chris Bosh and Heat point guard, Mario Chalmers stepped up to do their part in the Heat’s win Sunday night. Dirk Nowitzki had another great game with no help from his fellow teammates. Dallas had 14 turnovers in game 3, that ultimately led to 19 unanswered points by Miami. The bench that was supposed to be instrumental to Dallas in this finals series has instead been a liability. Even with Lebron finally getting called on by the refs for his consistent traveling, the Mavs will not win this series with sloppy play and “miscommunication”.
