The dedication to keep the children of Shelby County safe was recognized during a luncheon Thursday at The Bridge restaurant. Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart and Deputies Dave Spicer, Jeff Morris and Chris Brown were honored for their assistance in training the county’s educators to prepare for the unthinkable — a live shooter in a school. The four were honored by the superintendents of the schools in Shelby County. “I can’t thank these men for everything they have done for not only the school districts but the entire county,” said Sidney City Schools Superintendent John Scheu. “This was the first program of its type statewide. It has been very valuable for every school district.” A plaque was presented to Lenhart that included all four men’s names and will be hung at the Sheriff ’s Office. Each officer also received a smaller plaque with his name on it. “I appreciate your cooperation,” said Lenhart. “There is nothing more important than protecting the youth of our community. “I hope we never have to use this training,” he said. Approximately 85 educators have completed the training, said Lenhart. Another 20 have signed up for the 16hour training course. “I had one teacher tell me, ‘give me the tools to work

ARLO & JANIS
HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Saturday, June 15, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good day to introduce reforms at work or make things look more attractive. (You have the ability to communicate powerfully with others today.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Romance is powerful today, or conversely, you might meet someone you are attracted to who is powerful. This person might come from a different background. (But it's a friendly, social day.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Discussions with a female relative will be intense today. Quite likely, they will focus on money and purchases for the home. (It looks like you can benefit your home and family today.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Conversations with others are warm yet emotional today. A partner or a close friend might have pushy input. Nevertheless, you want to hear what this person has to say. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Important financial decisions may be made today. If so, that's OK. Behindthe-scenes help can benefit you. Perhaps you will get a better job or improve your job. (Ditto for your health.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) There might be something beautiful that you want to buy today. If so, you want it very much. However, this same energy can be applied to your determination to make money. (Money flows both ways.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Things will tend to go your way today, because the Moon is in your sign, making favorable contact with fair Venus and Pluto. Things will work well for you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) An authority figure, boss or parent will benefit you today, especially silently or behind the scenes. Whatever happens could bring improvements to your home or your family. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Discussions with others, especially females, will be powerful today. But you will enjoy them because, for the most part, people are friendly and gracious. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Be on the lookout for ways that others can support you or that you can benefit from the wealth and resources of others. This is possible today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) If you make decisions about shared property or anything that is jointly held, make sure that whatever happens benefits others as well as yourself. This way you win. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Powerful conversations might trigger a new romance, vacation or new arrangement with children. Nothing is casual today. Everything matters. YOU BORN TODAY You have a charming personality. You like to socialize, and you like the approval of others. Nevertheless, your strong persuasive skills know how to work a room. You can be an excellent parent. Something you've been involved with for the past nine years will end or diminish this year in order to make room for something new to enter your world.

CHICAGO CUBS’ Nate Schierholtz, right, slides safely into third as Cincinnati Reds’ Todd Frazier waits for the ball after hitting a triple during the
sixth inning of a baseball game on Thursday in Chicago. The Cubs won the game, which went 14 innings, 6-5.
Cubs win 6-5 to end Reds’ streak at Wrigley CHICAGO (AP) — Pinch-hitter Julio Borbon singled home the winning run with two outs in the 14th inning and the Chicago Cubs beat Cincinnati 6-5 on Thursday to end the Reds’ record 12-game winning streak at Wrigley Field. The Cubs hadn’t beaten Cincinnati at home since last Aug. 9. With the win, Chicago avoided a four-game sweep and improved to 3-10 against the Reds this season. Hector Rondon (1-0) pitched two innings for the win and Chicago’s bullpen finished with eight scoreless innings. Davis DeJesus homered and Nate Schierholtz became the first player this season to hit two triples in a game for the Cubs, who had lost eight of 10 to fall a season-high 13 games below .500. They scored at least five runs for the first time since June 5. Jonathan Broxton (22) took the loss in the longest game for both teams this season. The previous record
for consecutive victories by a visitor at Wrigley Field was 10, by the St. Louis Cardinals (194344) and matched by the New York Giants (195051) and Montreal Expos (1982-83), according to STATS. Starlin Castro led off the 14th with a single against Broxton and stole second when Anthony Rizzo struck out. Castro went to third on Alfonso Soriano’s groundout to first base, and Schierholtz was intentionally walked before Borbon came through. Mat Latos was trying to win his seventh straight decision to start the season for Cincinnati. He allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings. Latos has won his last 10 regular-season decisions since losing to the Cardinals on Aug. 24, and the Cincinnati bullpen has blown saves in five of his games this season. Jeff Samardzija pitched six innings, allowing five runs and a season-high 10 hits in six innings. He walked
four and struck out six. Since beating the White Sox with a twohitter on May 27, Samardzija is winless in three starts. Chicago tied the score at 5 in the eighth Darwin Barney’s two-out single off Sam LeCure. Cincinnati scored twice in the second on RBI singles by Devin Mesoraco and Shin-Soo Choo and added two in the fifth on run-scoring singles by Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips. Jay Bruce had four hits for the Reds. Choo reached base three times and scored twice. Castro went 3 for 7 after entering in a 4-for48 slump. He was back in the second spot in the lineup after dropping to seventh last week and hitting sixth on Wednesday. Castro also made two errors at shortstop. Zack Cozart reached on Castro’s second error leading off the 14th and advanced to third on Bruce’s two-out single. Rondon struck out Derrick Robinson to end the threat, Cincinnati’s first in extra innings.
NOTES: Reds manager Dusty Baker and Cubs skipper Dale Sveum were both impressed by the pace of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday night, won 4-3 in triple overtime by the Chicago Blackhawks. Baker went to United Center but left after regulation and said watching the game was an inspiration to return to the World Series. Sveum watched the entire game on TV. ... The Reds said it’s possible RHP Johnny Cueto could start Sunday against the Brewers. Cueto has been on the disabled list since June 1 with a strained right shoulder. ... Cubs RHP Shawn Camp, on the DL since May 22 with sprained right big toe, is expected to work two innings in a rehab assignment Friday for Class-A Kane County. ... Bronson Arroyo (6-5, 3.35 ERA) starts Friday for the Reds against Milwaukee RHP Kyle Lohse (2-6, 4.03). ... RHP Edwin Jackson (2-8, 5.76) pitches for the Cubs when they open a series Friday night in New York against Mets RHP Shaun Marcum (0-7, 4.96).
ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) — Even for Phil Mickelson, his path to the top of the leaderb o a r d T h u r s d ay in the U.S. Open was unconventional. Mickelson He traveled about 2,400 miles in the air and 7,000 yards on the ground. He took a short nap on his private jet from San Diego and another one during a rain delay when he found a secluded corner of the library room in the Merion clubhouse. He carried five wedges but no driver. Some 17 hours later, Mickelson had a 3-under 67 to match his best opening round in the U.S. Open. Mickelson returned from his daughter’s eighth-grade graduation about 3½ hours before his tee time. He threeputted his first hole for a bogey and didn’t give back a shot the rest of the day at Merion, which proved plenty tough by yielding only one other round under par to the 78 players who completed the first round. Because of two rain delays, the first round won’t be completed until Friday morning. Mickelson won’t have to tee it up again for another 24 hours. Enough time to fly back to San Diego? “I don’t want to push it, no,” Mickelson said with a tired smile. Tiger Woods faced a tougher road. He appeared to hurt his left hand after trying to gouge out of the deep rough on the opening hole. He grimaced and shook his left wrist again after hitting a 5wood out of the rough on the fifth hole. He already had three bogeys though five holes before starting to make up ground with a 50-foot birdie putt on
the par-4 sixth hole. Woods, however, failed to take advantage on the short stretch of holes in the middle of the round, and he was shaking his hand again after shots out of the rough on the 10th and twice on the 11th. He was 2-over for his round and had a 4-foot par putt on the 11th when play was stopped for the day. “I’ve got a lot of holes to play tomorrow,” Woods said. “And, hopefully, I can play a little better than I did today.” Luke Donald was 4under through 13 holes, making one last birdie before leaving the course. The first round was to resume at 7:15 a.m. Friday, and the forecast called for drier weather for the rest of the week. Masters champion Adam Scott, playing with Woods and Rory McIlroy, was 3-under through 11 holes, while defending U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson was 2-under through eight holes. McIlroy was 1-under. Lee Westwood got the full Merion experience. He was 3-under when his approach on the 12th hit the wicker basket — the signature at Merion, replacing traditional flags — and bounced off the green, leading to a double bogey. For Mickelson, this could be the start of yet another chance to win the major championship he wants so dearly. Or maybe he’s setting himself up for more heartache. He already has been a runner-up a record five times in the U.S. Open. “If I’m able — and I believe I will — if I’m able to ultimately win a U.S. Open, I would say that it’s great,” Mickelson said. “Because I will have had ... a win and five seconds. But if I never get that win, then it would be a bit heartbreaking.”
OHSAA OKs playoff format The Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors approved a proposal from the OHSAA staff for the 2013 football playoff schedule format. This fall, Divisions II, III, IV and VI will play their regional and state semifinal games on Friday nights at 7:30 p.m., while Divisions I, V and VII will play their regional and state semifinal games on Saturday nights at 7 p.m. The board also approved a proposal that beginning in 2014, the start date for football practice will always be Aug. 1 (Aug. 2 if Aug. 1 is a Sunday). This makes football consistent with the OHSAA’s other fall sports, which already begin practice Aug. 1. Of note, this fall football practice begins Aug. 5 except for those schools that begin classes Aug. 16 or earlier, in which case football practice may begin Aug. 1 for those schools.

OUTDOORS Field reports from ODNR wildlife officers Following are field reports from ODNR Division of Wildlife Officers: Central Ohio – Wildlife District One Kiser Lake has some great bass fishing and a new regulation was imposed on the lake with the hope of making it even better. The regulation states that anglers may keep two largemouth bass under 14 inches and one over 20 inches. All others must be returned to the lake. In late April 2013, State Wildlife Officer Jeff Tipton, assigned to Champaign County, received a call from a concerned citizen about a man that was catching and keeping largemouth bass that were in the “slot limit” and possibly more over the limit than he was allowed. The citizen gave a description of the car, a license plate number, and said that the man was fishing from a kayak. He also told Officer Tipton that the man was keeping the fish in a cooler, with an aerator, in the trunk of his car. He said that he had been doing it the day before and was back at it again. He said that he had informed the man the day before about the regulation, but believed that he had disregarded the warning. Tipton was nearby and able to respond quickly. He located the car and could see a man on a kayak who was obviously bass fishing. Not long after, the man in the kayak paddled back to his car. Officer Tipton contacted him, checked his fishing license, and asked about the fish in his car. After some conversation, the man showed him the cooler located in the trunk. In the cooler contained water, an aerator and two 20+ inch largemouth bass. The man stated that he was planning to take them home to stock his own pond. The man was issued a citation and eventually paid a fine in the amount of $175. Northwest Ohio – Wildlife District Two While on a boat patrol on Lake Erie, State
Wildlife Investigator Brian Keyser and State Wildlife Officer Scott Denamen, assigned to Geauga County, encountered two men in a small boat who were trolling for walleye. As the officers approached, the boat owner immediately began reeling in a rod and shouted “I guess you got me again!” The two men were fishing with a total of six rods, two more than the legal limit. Apparently the man was cited for the same violation less than two years earlier. He pleaded guilty and paid a waiver of $115. Southwest Ohio – Wildlife District Five During deer gun season, State Wildlife Officer Mark Schemmel, assigned to Adams County, and Wildlife Officer Field Supervisor Mike Miller were out on patrol. During their travels, they observed three individuals who appeared to be just returning from the woods. Their vehicle was backed up against a barn with all of the doors opened in what appeared to be a manner so they could unload any deer that they had harvested. As the two officers passed the entrance of the driveway and observed the details which traditionally identify hunter behavior, they decided to turn around and contact the individuals to check that the hunters and their harvest were in compliance with the law. When the officers began driving up the driveway, the individuals noticed the patrol vehicle and quickly began to close and latch the barn doors and gather their belongings. When the officers exited their vehicle, they spoke with the individuals and asked them if they had harvested any deer, which they had. Upon inspection of two deer carcasses hanging from the rafters, the officers saw that neither deer carcass had been temporarily tagged or permanently checked in. The owners of the deer carcasses were cited for failing to temporarily tag their deer.

Applications being Ohio has highest acccepted for participation rate controlled hunts COLUMBUS — Hunters wanting to participate in Ohio's 2013-14 controlled deer and waterfowl hunts have until July 31 to submit permit applications for a random drawing, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

All applicants, youth and adult, must possess a 2013-14 hunting license and meet the age requirements in order to apply for a controlled hunt. Hunters can apply for the controlled hunts by

There is a non-refundable fee of $3 per hunt. Hunters will be randomly drawn from submitted applications. Successful applicants will be notified and provided additional hunt information by U.S. mail and email. Applicants are encouraged to visit the Wild Ohio Customer Center at wildohio.com to view the status of their application and, if selected, print their controlled hunt permit.
COLUMBUS — The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) announces that boating safety enthusiasts set a new world record for life jacket wear during the fourth annual “Ready, Set, Wear It!” Life Jacket World Record Day on May 18. At nearly 200 events around the world, 5,747 people slipped on their life jacket of choice breaking the world record for life jacket wear, according to the National Boat Safety Council. The previous world record was set last year when 3,993 participants donned life jackets. According to a press release from the Na-
tional Safe Boating Council, Ohio had the highest participation rate in the nation, with 897 total participants attending one of 16 events around the state. Ohio also hosted the largest U.S. event this year at Stillwater Prairie Reserve, sponsored by the Miami County Park District, with 408 participants. “We are grateful for the support of Ohioans who wore their life jackets on the ‘Ready, Set, Wear It!’ Life Jacket World Record Day,” said Norcross. “While we are pleased Ohio received this recognition, it is even more valuable to promote the fact that life jackets save lives.”

• In the 1970s and ’80s, the National League seemed to own baseball on plastic grass. The Big Red Machine in Cincinnati, the Pittsburgh Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies all enjoyed a great deal of success playing on turf and using speed to their advantage. Other than the Kansas City Royals, there were few success stories on turf in the American League. With the artificial stuff becoming a thing of the past, only two stadiums now have turf, Toronto and Tampa Bay. This season, only one National League team has won a game on the fake grass. Atlanta defeated the Blue Jays 7-6 in 10 innings on May 28 for the only NL win in nine games this season. • It took seven seasons, 210 games and 702.1 innings in the minor leagues before Curtis Partch reached the major leagues with Cincinnati. The right-handed reliever made his major league debut on Sunday against St. Louis. But in all of his wisdom, Reds manager Dusty Baker decided that facing Matt Holliday in the 10th inning with the bases loaded and one out would be an appropriate spot for Partch to get his feet wet. Six pitches into his career he had given up a grand slam.
• While Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera continues to chase history and his second consecutive American League Triple Crown, we started thinking about pitchers who allow the highest batting average, the most home runs and RBIs and wondered if a pitcher could win that dubious Triple Crown. Currently, Wade Davis of Kansas City leads with a .335 average allowed, Chris Tillman of Baltimore has coughed up 16 gopher balls and batters have driven in 51 runs off Milwaukee’s Wily Peralta. Joe Blanton of the Angels remains a serious candidate with a .332 average, 13 bombs and 49 RBIs. If the Padres allow him to log enough innings, Clayton Richards will contend. He stands at .315-13-39.
Brett Gardner, New York The fleet outfielder had the best week of his season with 13 hits last week. The Yankees won six of seven and Gardner batted .520 with a home run, five runs and six extra-base hits. He capped the week with three hits on Saturday and four on Sunday.
David Phelps, New York The righthander was inserted into the starting rotation in May, and the Yanks have won six of his eight starts, including two last week. Phelps tossed six shutout innings against Cleveland, then allowed only one run over six frames in a 2-1 win at Seattle.
Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles Not since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981 has a rookie for the Dodgers taken the baseball world by storm like Puig. The rookie totaled 13 hits in just seven games, including four homers and 10 RBIs.
Kris Medlen, Atlanta The Braves and their fans carried high expectations of Medlen into this season after his terrific showing in 2012. In starts against Pittsburgh and the Dodgers last week, Medlen gave up just one run — which was unearned — over 13.2 innings to earn two wins. He also socked the first home run of his career.
Carlos Correa, Houston The No. 1 overall pick in 2012 continues to progress well. He’s hitting just .282 at SingleA Quad Cities, but has 48 RBIs in 40 games.
June 21, 1964 In a Father’s Day double dip at New York’s Shea Stadium, Hall of Famer Jim Bunning of the Phillies becomes the first pitcher to toss no-hitters in both leagues as he pitches a perfect game. In the nightcap, 18-year-old Rick Wise, making his second major league start, earns the first of his 188 wins. June 16, 1969 In a rare double double steal, Twins Rod Carew and Tony Oliva steal second and third, and with Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew still at the plate, Carew steals home and Oliva third for two double steals during one at-bat. The steal of home is the sixth for Carew for the season, tying an AL record.
Plated seven 10th-inning runs Sunday for first extra-inning win. Only four games left in June vs. losing teams. Given up 19 runs over their last nine games. Nelson Cruz is batting. 367 with RISP and two outs. At 20-8, A’s have majors’ best intradivision record. Should spruce up record vs. Cubs and Brewers this week. Bucs batted just .184 last week. Still don’t seem to be missing any superstars. Patrick Corbin: 9-0, 1.98; rest of rotation: 13-21, 4.91. Swept Cleveland to build their biggest lead of the season. Important four-game series with Red Sox this weekend. Have won nine of 10 against NL foes. Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez are best 1-2 punch in NL. Buster Posey leads National Leaguers in All-Star votes. 11-6 record is best NL mark for one-run games. Spent one day over .500 this season — last Thursday. Everth Cabrera stole eight bases last week. Lost 11 straight (and counting) road games. Howie Kendrick hit .542 for the week. Opponents yet to score more than three runs in a game in June. 3-10 since reaching .500 on Memorial Day weekend. Bullpen owns 1.14 WHIP and 2.93 ERA. Jesus Montero batting .250, playing first base since demotion. Andre Ethier’s last RBI came on May 20. Jose Reyes’ return on the horizon. Where would this team be without the late signing of Kyle Lohse? Starlin Castro mired in a 1-for-24 slump. Taken seven of eight vs. AL teams. Lucas Harrell looks like a real ace. Play six of next nine vs. division leaders.

Next MLB Commissioner
At the end of the 2014 season, the contract of baseball Commissioner Bud Selig will expire. Barring an unforeseen agreement between Selig and the owners to extend his tenure, MLB will have a new Commissioner at some point during the offseason prior to the 2015 season. While MLB has certainly enjoyed unprecedented growth during Selig’s tenure, the game has hit more than one iceberg as well. There was the 1994 strike that cancelled the postseason and delayed the 1995 season. The 2001 All-Star Game tie and subsequent ill-fated connection between the midseason exhibition game and World Series has been a debacle. And let’s not even begin talking about steroids and other PEDs that have damaged the game. But the elephant in the office in New York is the question of Selig’s successor. And as we approach a 15month countdown, there is apparently no clear candidate to replace Selig, who began his tenure in 1992 as Acting Commissioner before dropping the Acting tag in 1998. So who should be the next Commissioner of baseball? What criteria should be emphasized? And what should be the selection process? While it would be good for the game for the next leader to be popular among the fans, respected by the players and trusted by the owners, only one of those groups has any say in the deal — and that’s the owners. So, don’t expect the players, the fans or the media to have much influence. Although it would be smart of the owners to be sensitive to both the fans and players. The owners, in conjunction with the Commissioner’s office, will likely establish a search committee that will recommend candidates to the owners. From there, who knows which way the wind will blow once the owners convene?
13 .249 2 .431 8
Let’s take at look at some candidates ranked in order of best to worst. George W. Bush The former president commands a level of respect and doesn’t run from conflict or tough issues. He has experience as an owner, and with him as emcee, the draft would certainly be more entertaining. Nolan Ryan The former fireballer is well-respected among front offices and the players. His no-nonsense approach to building the Rangers proved he is more than just your average good ol’ boy. Bob Costas The longtime broadcaster doesn’t hide his endearing love for the game. I’m biased here because I believe Costas would lead an effort to abolish the DH. It’s difficult to envision Costas giving up a cushy broadcast job with NBC and MLB Network for the headaches of this office. Bob Bowman Bowman deserves credit for MLB’s huge success in the digital world, and that may be the most important arm of MLB in the near future. John Schuerholz One of the under-the-radar candidates, Schuerholz built contenders at Kansas City and Atlanta from scratch. The baseball side would come easy, for sure. And he certainly looks the part of a CEO. Rob Manfred Manfred has been Selig’s right-hand man for several years now, concentrating on labor relations. He has a healthy relationship with the union, and that can’t be overstated. But his lack of familiarity among fans may make him a tough sell for a position that must continually sell the game. Cal Ripken The former Iron Man commands respect from both players and owners — as well as fans — but the truth is that only the respect of the owners matters. Ripken has enjoyed success running Ripken Baseball, so he has CEO experience.
Andy MacPhail The son of the long-time American League president is an experienced leader with three franchises. Baseball is in his blood, and he is well-respected. Hank Aaron At one point the game needed Aaron in the main office. At one point the former home run king would have relished the opportunity. But that point has passed. Joe Torre The former player and manager has been EVP of Baseball Operations in the Commissioner’s office since 2011, save for a two-month sabbatical. Torre has dealt with many issues facing the game, most notably the PED issues. But is he really the CEO type? AP Images/Tony Gutierrez Mitt Romney The former President, George W. Bush (left), and Hall of Fame There’s been little, if pitcher Nolan Ryan top my list of Commissioner candidates. any, talk about the former governor and presidential candidate, but Romney has CEO Tim Brosnan expertise and has experience running The long-time MLB executive’s roots the Olympics. Due to his lack of base- are in broadcast negotiations and licensball background, it would take a while ing — two important arms for the office. John Smoltz for him to resonate with fans. Among former players, the former AllTony La Russa Like Torre, La Russa is working in the Star and future Hall of Famer speaks Commissioner’s office and is gaining with wisdom and clarity. valuable experience in perspectives Buster Olney Few members in the media have his other than from the dugout. genuine respect for the game and keen Frank Robinson Robinson has experience in the Com- understanding of its multiple facets. missioner’s office in enforcement, he’s George Will managed for three different franchises, The columnist has been a favorite of Selig and has served on a special comworked in the front office and mittee created by the commissioner to won an MVP in both the AL and study all aspects of the game. But would NL. the owners accept him as their leader?
The future Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera has 1,077 relief apperances, easily the most of any active pitcher and fourth all-time. Do you know who is second among active pitchers?
Hits for Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers in his first six games. That is the most hits for any Dodger in his first six games since 1900. Puig’s accomplishments include four home runs, two outfield assists and 10 RBIs. Slugging percentage of left-handed batters off of the New York Mets’ righthander Matt Harvey. It is the lowest among all righties. Number of batters in 96 innings that the Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright has faced with the bases loaded this season. He retired them both. Paul Goldschmidt’s batting average with runners in scoring position. The Diamondbacks’ first baseman, who leads the National League with 58 RBIs, is batting just .283 without ducks on the pond. Pitchers with enough innings to qualify for the ERA title who have a sub-.200 Batting Average Against this season. Yu Darvish of Texas (.182), Max Scherzer of Detroit (.185), Chris Sale of the White Sox (.192), Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers (.192) and Hisashi Iwakuma of Seattle (.192) are names you would expect to see on that list. Clay Buchholz of Boston checks in at .195 and rookie Matt Harvey of the Mets is at .196. The name that really stands out is Travis Wood of the Cubs. Opponents are batting just .193 off the lefthander, who is 5-4 for Chicago this season.

TRIVIA ANSWER: LaTroy Hawkins of the New York Mets is second with 897.
• It wasn’t his major league debut, but Texas reliever Michael Kirkman had a similar nightmare last week. The lefty entered a tie game at Boston to start the bottom of the ninth. His first offering was lined for a double by Jonny Gomes. After an intentional pass to Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz deposited his sixth pitch of the night into the seats for a walk-off homer.
