KWBG Sports at a Glance for August 9th

Posted on 09 August 2011 by KWBG

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Roy Halladay of the Phillies has earned his
15th win of the season, most in the National League. Halladay
pitched the Phils to a 5-3 victory over the Dodgers in Los Angeles
last night. Halladay went six and a-third innings, allowing nine
hits but just one run in running his record to 15-4.
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Philadelphia Phillies center fielder Shane
Victorino homered and had three hits and scored three runs in the
Phils’ win in Los Angeles while appealing a three-game suspension
imposed for his part in a weekend brawl at San Francisco. Major
League Baseball also fined Victorino an undisclosed amount, but
he’s allowed to play until his appeal is heard.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The Pittsburgh Pirates’ 10-game losing
streak is history. The Pirates, who dropped from first to third in
the NL Central during their swoon, blanked NL West-leading San
Francisco 5-0 last night as Charlie Morton hurled eight strong
innings, allowing six hits.
MIAMI (AP) – Atlanta’s Dan Uggla stretched his hitting streak to
29 games with an infield single last night in the Braves’ 8-5 win
over Florida. That’s the longest active hitting streak in the
majors and is two behind Rico Carty’s franchise-record 31 in a row
in 1970.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – Penn State’s legendary 84-year-old
football coach Joe Paterno was hospitalized and undergoing tests on
his right arm and hip after a player ran into him during practice
on Sunday. A person familiar with the team says doctors were
evaluating Paterno’s shoulder and pelvis, and there was no firm
diagnosis yet on the extent of the injuries.
