  • The weekend of a lifetime began with a prank. It ended with a glow that may never fade. When Jarrett Grube was summoned out of the Los Angeles Angels bullpen to pitch two-thirds of an inning against Oakland on Saturday night, the point was not the modest part he played in an 11-3 loss. Nor was it the solo home run he surrendered before retiring the side.
  • Kevin Kiermaier has come a long way from being a high school sophomore who wanted to give up baseball. The Bishop Luers graduate is on the Tampa Bay Rays’ 40-man roster, meaning he could be playing in the Major Leagues or with the Triple-A Durham Bulls at any time this season.
