Rockies Avoid Sweep With 6-3 Win Over Padres
After two consecutive wins, powered by their offense, the San Diego Padres narrowly missed out on a road sweep of the Colorado Rockies today.

Padres Place Solarte On DL, Recall Amarista
The good news is that the injury that knocked Yangervis Solarte out of yesterday’s San Diego Padres’ win over the Colorado Rockies isn’t serious. The bad news is that it is serious enough that he needs to take a couple of weeks off. The team announced today that they would be placing him on the 15-day DL.

Jordan Spieth’s collapse is one we won’t soon forget – USA Today
The collapse was breathtaking in its suddenness. There was 22-year-old golf wunderkind Jordan Spieth marching into history as a back-to-back, wire-to-wire Masters champion, holding a commanding five-shot lead as the shadows grew long Sunday evening in the first men’s major tournament of the year.

Then, when not one but two of his shots disappeared into iconic Rae’s Creek, resulting in a quadruple bogey 7 on Augusta National’s famous par-3 12th, there was the previously unflappable Spieth falling apart, historically melting down before our very eyes.

Gulls move closer to home ice with 5-4 OT loss in Stockwon –
Ondrej Kase’s equalizing goal with 5:13 remaining in the third period allowed the San Diego Gulls to earn a tough point at Stockton Arena, before bowing 5-4 in sudden death. The Heat’s Freddie Hamilton netted the game-winner 1:26 into extra time as Stockton (31-30-2-2) kept their fleeting hopes for a playoff berth alive.

Philip Rivers was so fired up during NC State Spring game speech, he asked to play – For The Win
You don’t love anything more than Philip Rivers loves football. The guy is a certified football nerd and it just bleeds out when he starts talking about the game. Here he is talking to the North Carolina State football team before its Spring game.


Aztecs’ Fisher deserves to be in Hall – San Diego Union-Tribune
Fisher seems in danger of becoming college basketball’s Don Coryell, with a difference, although in both respects, these men turned programs into winners wherever they went. Steve won an NCAA title at Michigan, for one thing, and Don of course (famously brought up continuously in Pro Football Hall meetings) never even got to a Super Bowl. He did, however, change the game. Forever.

Warriors beat Spurs, have 72 wins, need 1 for history – USA Today
The Warriors finally reached the rarefied air of Michael Jordan and his legendary 1995-96 Chicago Bulls team, alright, downing the San Antonio Spurs 92-86 on Sunday night to improve to 72-9 and guarantee at least a tie for the record 72-10 mark. They also became the first team in league history to never lose two games in a row for an entire season.

With Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao gone, boxing needs to find fresh faces of the sport – Boxing Junkie
Pacquiao put the finishing touches on his Hall of Fame career with a workmanlike, if not spectacular, unanimous decision victory against Timothy Bradley before a partisan crowd at the MGM Grand. He knocked an athletic fighter known for staying on his feet down twice. Bradley has lost two fights in his career, both to Pacquiao.

Super Bowl Winner Will Smith Shot, Killed in New Orleans; Suspect Arrested – ABC News
A man was arrested Sunday in the shooting death of former New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith, who helped the team win Super Bowl XLIV, its only championship.
