Bucks vs. Bulls final score: Michael Carter-Williams, Khris Middleton lead Bucks to road win, send series back to Milwaukee

Two of Milwaukee's young guys came up big to send the series back home for Game 6. Staving off elimination in Game 4 was a pleasant surprise for the Milwaukee Bucks, and it came in exciting fashion. Stealing another do-or-die game, this time on the road, would be a much tougher task. Thankfully for the Bucks, Michael Carter-Williams and Khris Middleton were up to the challenge. Now the Young Bucks get another shot at the Bulls in front of their (hopefully swollen) home crowd, and nobody is going to be underestimating them this time. Michael Carter-Williams played a terrific all-around game...

Rays 1, Yankees 4: Offense, Bullpen Not Sharp In Loss To Yankees

Brandon Gomes and Everett Teaford aren't enough out of the pen to keep the Yankees off the board. The Rays five game winning streak came to an end Monday night at the hands of the Yankees, as did their one day stay atop the American League East. This game was pretty uneventful as a whole, so let's take a look at each three facets of the game individually. Hitting: The biggest threat (meaning multiple men in scoring position) the offense posed was in the first inning when Steven Souza singled and Asdrubal Cabrera doubled with one out. Unfortunately, Evan Longoria struck out and James Loney...
