Well-loved American comedian, writer and actor Charlie Murphy passed away on April 12th, losing his battle with leukemia at the age of 59.

Red Sox Pitcher Faces Suspension After Throwing At Machado’s Head
Boston Red Sox pitcher Matt Barnes was ejected yesterday for throwing a 90-mph fastball inches behind the head of Orioles third baseman Manny Machado. In Friday night’s game between the same two clubs, Machado caught Pedroia in the back of the calf with his spikes while sliding into second base, breaking up a possible double play. Pedroia left the game with an injured leg. Umpires reviewed the play and decided that the slide was not dirty, and did not enforce the second base collision rule. Immediately after the slide Machado was helping Pedroia, coming off the base to make sure he was ok. Red Sox Third base coach Butterfield was ejected shortly after when he confronted the umpires. Pedroia was taken out of the lineup as due to the injury. Pedroia stated that Machado texted him after the game and apologized, and that he thanked Machado for “reaching out.” Red Sox fans were incensed, and the topic of conversation this weekend was not IF the Red Sox should throw at Machado, but WHO should throw at him. So it was no surprise when late in the game, with the Sox up 6-0, Barnes threw at Machado. Machado had no time to react as the ball barely missed his head. From the dugout, Dustin Pedroia yelled “It’s not me” to Machado. Barnes is expected to miss between three and six games.

Capitals Take Out Maple Leafs
The Washington Capitals defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs Sunday night in overtime to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Capitals, which were the best team in the entire NHL this year, had a tougher time than expected against the Leafs, losing two games, and going to overtime in all but one game. Marcus Johansson was the hero in last night’s matchup, scoring the game-tying goal late in the third period, and then the game-winning goal in overtime. The Capitals second round opponent is the Pittsburgh Penguins, the team that seemingly knocks the Caps out of the playoffs every year. The Penguins dispatched the Columbus Blue Jackets in five games with relative ease. Game one of the Caps-Pens series begins Thursday in Washington.
