Unusual finish to Astros-Angels: pickoff, Springer injury, complete game

  • What an odd ninth inning in the Astros-Angels game Wednesday night in Anaheim.It began with Angels starter Jered Weaver taking the mound even though LA  had just a 2-1 lead. Weaver had thrown 86 pitches through eight, so he was good to go. MORE: SN ranks 's worst bullpens | Closer WatchWith one out, he hit Astros rookie George Springer in the butt with a fastball. Angels manager Mike Scioscia stuck with his ace. With the count 3-2 on the next batter, Dexter Fowler, Weaver caught Springer leaning with a hard pickoff throw. First baseman Albert Pujols made a nifty scoop and tagged Springer for second out.To add injury to insult, Springer hurt his right hip on the play and was accidentally kicked in the face by Pujols. The Astros later said that Springer suffered a hip flexor strain. The face appears to be OK.Right hip flexor strain for Springer. Luhnow says strength test better than anticipated.

    Examining the cancer that killed Tony Gwynn

  • Tony Gwynn broke every mold.A heavy guy with terrible knees, he was a base-stealing, batting title-winning Hall of Famer, and he died this week at 54. He’d spent the last four years fighting parotid cancer, and while his smokeless tobacco habit has been extensively eyeballed as the cause, there’s no definitive evidence linking the two. Gwynn had none of the risk factors for parotid cancer — he hadn’t been exposed to radiation, asbestos, or rubber manufacturing, he wasn’t a miner, and he wasn’t elderly. Make no mistake — smokeless tobacco is absolutely linked to other oral cancers, pancreatic cancer, and a variety of horrible oral lesions even more disgusting than the tobacco itself.MORE: Gwynn's legacy | Memorable images 夜网论坛 That's your parotid, and there's important stuff under there. (Source: docstock.com)The parotid gland is the largest of the salivary glands and sits on either side of your face over the angle of your jaw. It makes saliva, plus enzymes that begin the breakdown of starches. The problem with the parotid is the number of very important, very complicated, very necessary structures that run through it. Among them, the external carotid artery and the facial nerve, which is responsible for facial expressions, taste and bossing several glands around. Given Gwynn’s history of surgery for several non-cancerous parotid growths, and radiation and surgery for his parotid cancer, it’s not hard to see the origin of his complications.
