The 2014 Arizona Diamondbacks were destined to be in the thick of the NL pennant race come late August. They brought back their core from 2013, when they finished 2nd in the NL West to the 92-win Dodgers, and came nine games from a Wild Card spot. They had a budding ace in Patrick Corbin, who was only going to help a pitching staff with a respectable 3.92 ERA a season ago improve. They added Bronson Arroyo in the offseason, fresh off a 14-win campaign in Cincinnati. They had the healthy mix of established veterans and rising youngsters that seems to be the winning formula these days.

BOSTON, MA -- Found inside a 6-4 Yankees road win was a superb performance from the bullpen. Shawn Kelley, Adam Warren, Dellin Betances, and David Robertson tossed a combined 4 1/3 innings of two-hit ball, yielding just one run. Inside that? Three triple-digit fastballs from Dellin Betances to Mike Napoli, one clocking a career-high 101 MPH on the Fenway Park radar gun.

"When I get an out, I kind of look back," said Betances. "I saw it and I said 'Oh, wow.'"

Minneapolis, Minn.- The American League defeated the National League 5-3 in the 85th MLB All Star Game on Tuesday in Minnesota. However, Derek Jeter, playing in his 14th and final Midsummer Classic, was the real headline of the event as was expected. The expectations didn't necessarily include a 2 for 2 performance at the plate with a near incredible play up the middle though. But on a cool night in the Twin Cities that's exactly what the Yankees captain delivered.
