With their loss today to the Brewers, the Red Sox fell to 2-4 on the young season, and unlike the last few games in 2013, not all the seats were filled. After an opening day that was sold out, the next two games were just filled at 96% capacity. This year, the average price of Red Sox tickets is $141, which is the most expensive average price in all of major league baseball. Seven out of the top 15 most expensive games on the schedule are predictably against the Yankees, including the last game of the season, which could be the final game of Derek Jeter’s career.
Derek Jeter took over sole possession of eighth place on baseball's career hits list with a single in the fourth inning against the Blue Jays on Sunday. It was the 3,320th hit of Jeter's career, moving him past Hall of Famer Paul Molitor. Next on the list is Carl Yastrzemski, with 3,419. Jeter entered play Sunday batting .182 with no homers and one RBI in what he has said will be his final season.
LeBron James scored 38 points, Mario Chalmers added 15 and the Miami Heat survived a 3-point barrage from New York's J.R. Smith on the way to dealing the Knicks' playoff hopes a big blow with a 102-91 victory on Sunday. Chris Bosh added 14 points and Ray Allen had 12 for the Heat, who remained atop the Eastern Conference standings.
Chris Tillman outpitched Justin Verlander, allowing one run while working into the ninth and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers 3-1 Sunday to avoid getting swept. Tillman gave up five hits, including Torii Hunter's solo homer in the fourth, in 8 1-3 innings. Tommy Hunter entered with one out in the ninth and Victor Martinez on second base and retired the last two batters for his second save. Baltimore won for the first time since its opener against baseball's last undefeated team.
