Tennessee defeats Lipscomb in the season opener.
In each of the first two games, the Lady Vols held commanding 10-5 leads before putting each game away with substantial runs: 13-0 in the first game and 9-0 in the second. The third was a different matter, however, as Lipscomb kept the match close throughout the early going, taking four different two-point leads, the last one at 9-7.

South Dakota State won one of four matches at the Oregon Kickoff tournament. SDSU defeated Gonzaga but lost to Portland State, Eastern Washington, and host Oregon.

Royals don't have enough against Yankees, Giambi:
Both of Giambi's homers came against Zack Greinke (3-16), who lost for the fifth straight time. His 16 losses are the most for any pitcher in the majors.

"Sometimes, I think I do decent, but it will just find a way to happen," Greinke said. "Even if I pitch about as I good as I have pitched, they'll find a way, some way to score runs and win the game when I'm pitching.

"Today I didn't really give us a chance. They've got some great hitters and early on they were hitting my pitches pretty much, but later in the game I was messing up."

Royals need to go 21-13 to avoid 100 losses.

Royals come back to reality in New York:
Mike Wood (4-5), the winning pitcher last Saturday when Kansas City beat Oakland to snap its 19-game losing streak, allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings. The Royals had followed their skid by winning four of five, but Friday's loss dropped them to 0-9 at Yankee Stadium since Aug. 6, 2002.
Royals need to go 21-15 to avoid 100 losses.

An unfamiliar group of baseball players wearing blue appeared for the second straight game at Kauffman Stadium and played like they deserved to be on the same field with the World Series champions:
The Royals continued their uplifting spurt Thursday night with a 7-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox, taking the series two games to one at Kauffman Stadium. The Red Sox's lead over the New York Yankees shrank to 2 1/2 games in the American League East.

"It just makes trying to understand this game a lot more complicated," Royals manager Buddy Bell said. "You don't understand how that streak happened. You don't understand how you can go through that and come back and play really well."

I have to say I really enjoyed writing this article's headline. Royals need to go 21-16 to avoid 100 losses.

The Dakota Athletic Conference, currently in the NAIA, is considering a move up to NCAA Division II:
The eight remaining DAC members are Minot State, Black Hills State, Mayville State, Valley City State, Dickinson State, South Dakota Tech, Jamestown College and Dakota State. They will be comparing the NCAA and the NAIA, researching such issues as cost, competition, recruitment and enrollment.

"There are a lot of differences between the two," (Minot State University athletic director Rick) Hedberg said. "The NCAA puts limits on recruiting and scholarships. There are travel costs to keep in mind. There are conference dues and scheduling concerns."

Hedberg said that if the DAC decides to move to Division II, it likely would happen quickly.

Backhanded praise from a Boston paper:
Although they left their powder – Jonathan Papelbon and Jeremi Gonzalez – dry for tonight, the Red Sox suffered a dispiriting loss against a weak team with a pretty good bullpen.

They also wasted a chance to pick up a game in the American League East on the Yankees, who lost 9-5 to Toronto.

Royals need to go 22-16 to avoid 100 losses.
