NFL Player Formally Charged for Miramar Robbery; Charges Dropped Against 2nd Player
08/07/2020 5:17pm

Baker faces a minimum of 10 years in prison if convicted.A second player arrested in the case, 28-year-old Seattle Seahawks defensive back and Miami native Quinton Dunbar, will not face charges due to insufficient evidence, according to prosecutors.Accordingto the initial arrest warrant, Baker and Dunbar were attending a cookout at aMiramar home when a fight broke out, and Baker pulled out a handgun. Baker,Dunbar and two other men began robbing other people at the party of thousandsof dollars in cash, watches and other valuables, witnesses told investigators.Police said the four men then fled the home in three vehicles: a Mercedes Benz, a Lamborghini and a BMW. Witnesses said the vehicles were parked in a way that would make it easy to leave quickly, leading detectives to believe the robbery was planned in advance.

Florida Governor Pushes to Reschedule UF-FSU Football Game
08/07/2020 9:06am

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he will push to get the annual football game between Florida State and the University of Florida rescheduled, saying Thursday that keeping the famed rivalry going will be good for the state.He made his effort known during a discussion on high school sports that included two former star athletes from each school: Charlie Ward, who won a Heisman Trophy as Florida States quarterback and later played in the NBA, and Lito Sheppard, a cornerback at UF who was twice selected to the Pro Bowl while later playing with the Philadelphia Eagles.We do have a situation coming up where were going to have a college football season without Florida playing Florida State, DeSantis said. Charlie, Lito I am going to see if we can make sure that rivalry game continues because I know its one we all look forward to ever year. Florida, which plays in the Southeastern Conference, and Florida State, which plays in the Atlantic Coast Conference, have played each other every year since 1958. This year because of the coronavirus pandemic, the ACC initially looked at a conference only schedule, then approved allowing one non-conference game under certain conditions. That left open the possibility of a matchup between the rivals, but the SEC later told schools they had to stick to a conference only schedule.Its an epic rivalry, and if youre able to play, youre able to play, and so lets give the fans what they want, DeSantis said. DeSantis, who captained the Yale baseball team as an undergraduate, noted, I dont have a dog in the fight.Sports is kind of one of the great unifiers. Now Florida-Florida State, thats not necessarily unifying in our state, but you know what I mean, DeSantis said. Its something that a lot of Floridians and Americans really appreciate.This corrects an earlier version that said the ACC required a conference only schedule.

Miami Marlins Beat Baltimore Orioles to Complete Stunning 4-Game Sweep
08/07/2020 8:52am

In early March, Don Mattingly figured the rebuild of the Miami Marlins just might begin to show results this season.The world, and the Marlins, are vastly different since then. Yet, somehow, this baseball team has found a way to overcome a team-wide coronavirus outbreak, an unwanted eight-day layoff and a whole lot of youth to fashion the best record in baseball.Jonathan Villar hit a first-pitch leadoff homer to spark a robust offensive performance by the Marlins, who beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-7 Thursday night to complete a startling four-game sweep and make Mattingly the winningest manager in franchise history.Villar had three hits and Brian Anderson drove in three runs for the upstart Marlins, many of whom spent last week holed up in a Philadelphia hotel after 18 players tested positive for COVID-19.The whole organization is making that move forward. We felt it in spring training, Mattingly said. We felt it coming with our young players, and theyre not even all here yet. It feels good right now.The Marlins are in first place in the NL East despite coming to town Tuesday with a whole lot of rookies and free agents. According to StatsBySTATS, Miami is the first big league to start 6-1 or better through seven games after losing at least 105 the previous season since the St. Louis Perfectos began 7-0 in 1899.Were coming out ready to play. We have young guys who have a lot of energy, Villar said.Perhaps the feeling is infectious, because Villar drove the first offering from Wade LeBlanc into the left-field seats.Villar is an ambusher. LeBlanc should have known that, Orioles manager Brandon Hyde lamented. The Marlins were the home team because this was a makeup of a July 28 game that was to be held in Miami but postponed in the wake of the Marlins COVID-19 outbreak.Batting in the bottom of the seventh, the Marlins broke a 6-6 tie with a sacrifice fly by Jess Aguilar off Evan Phillips 1-1 and an RBI triple by Anderson.That was enough to earn Mattingly his 282nd win with Miami, passing Jack McKeon on the teams career list. He was given a bottle of bubbly to mark the occasion.In their first three wins in the series, Miami relied on exceptional pitching in victories by scores of 4-0, 1-0 and 2-1. In this one, the Marlins won with their bats.Villars homer sparked an 11-hit attack, and Miami needed almost every one of them because starter Jordan Yamamoto gave up three one-run leads and Jorge Guzman, in his major league debut, yielded successive solo homers toDwight Smith and Renato Nezto create a sixth-inning tie.But Mike Morin 1-0 pitched two shutout innings and Brandon Kintzler worked the ninth for his third save.It was Miamis first four-game sweep since April 2016, against the Dodgers. Baltimore wasted four home runs, including two by Nez and Chance Siscos first of the year. The drives were offset by two errors and several other miscues that didnt show up in the box score.We had a bad night defensively, doing things that we hadnt been doing, Hyde said.Although the Marlins havent immediately suffered for their time off, the schedule revision released Thursday does Miami no favors. The Marlins will finish the regular season with 27 games over the final 23 days, which includes no off days and four double headers in a 10-day span.DAVIS A DUDChris Davis had a solid spring training, batting .409 with three homers and nine RBIs in 12 games. That gave the Orioles hope that he might be ready to provide some return on a $161 million, 7-year contract he signed in 2016.Alas, spring training was halted by the coronavirus outbreak and Davis has reverted to the form he displayed during the last seasons, when he batted . 168 and .179.The former two-time home run champ batted eighth Thursday and went 1 for 4. Hes got two hits this season and is hitting .087.NO STARCHKintzler found an alternate use for the ironing board in his hotel room while being quarantined in Philadelphia.I needed to figure out how I could simulate a workout, so I got the ironing board out and started taking the tops off the coffee tables, Kintzler revealed Thursday. They were heavy stones, so I would add them to the ironing board and carry it around like a front rack. I was doing step-ups on the bed and lunges.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: Rookie CF Monte Harrison crashed into the wall chasing a triple by Anthony Santander in the third inning, but stayed in the game after being examined by the team trainer.Orioles: INF Rio Ruiz missed a fourth straight game with a sore right shoulder. Manager Brandon Hyde hopes to have him back Friday or Saturday. SS Jos Iglesias played the field for the first time since July 29 after being hampered by a sore left quad.UP NEXTMarlins: Still waiting to play their first real home game of the season, the Marlins head north to face the New York Mets on Friday night in the opener of a three-game set.Orioles: LH Tommy Milone 0-1, 5.63 ERA makes his third start of the season when Baltimore travels down the road to face the defending World Series champion Washington National.
