Baseball

- I think Rob Refsnyder showed the Yankees what he can do on Sunday as he picked up his first hit, and then his first home run in the next at bat. I don't think there's a better way for a first career homer to go then all the way out of Fenway over the Green Monster. Yankees.com has more, including video of Refsnyder talking about his home run

- His Saturday game had a "Welcome to the Big Leagues" moment when Pablo Sandoval slid into him at second, but of course, Refsnyder said it was no big deal

- Former Wildcat Rafael Valenzuela was there for this scary moment
