Home Run Derby

Youth was served at the 2013 Home Run Derby as Oakland Athletics outfielder
Yoenis Cespedes beat Washington's Bryce Harper, 9-8, in the final round. The
27-year-old Cespedes became the second A's player to win the competition with
the other being Mark McGwire in 1992. It also extended the American League's
run of winners to seven straight years. Cespedes had only five outs in the
final round when he tied Harper with a blast off the window of the restaurant
beyond left field. A's third base coach Mike Gallego then delivered a perfect
pitch to Cespedes, who won the title with a towering 455 foot blast beyond the
wall in center at Citi Field.

Early Tuesday morning, U.S. fighter jets, armed Predator and Reaper drones, and Navy ships launched airstrike attacks against ISIS, deep within Syria. While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.
