Good Morning: Mike Trout Hits For The Cycle Against Seattle

    Mike Trout became the youngest player in AL history to hit for the cycle, as the Angels destroyed the Mariners, 12-0. Josh Hamilton also hit a triple and a homer during his first two at-bats to celebrate his 32nd birthday.


    The Spurs appeared to be cruising to a 2-0 series lead with 10 minutes left in last night's game, but the Grizz came storming back in the final eight minutes. Tony Allen earned (in every sense of the word) a flagrant foul to get Memphis an extra possession with just under 30 seconds left in the game, and Mike Conley hit a floater to send the game to OT. From there, it was the Tim Duncan show after Tony Parker dominated most of the game in regulation. The Spurs held on to win 93-89 and put a lot of pressure on Memphis to win at home.


    The Cleveland Cavs won the draft lottery for the third time in 10 years.
