The Battle Creek Bombers lost to the Wisconsin Woodchucks 12-4 on Monday night.   The Woodchucks teed off on Bombers’ pitching, pounding out 20 hits, including back-to-back homers in the first inning.  Nick Walker, of Austin Peay, extended his hit streak to fifteen games. He’s hitting .407.   The Bombers head to Wisconsin Rapids to play the Rafters tonight and tomorrow.  The next “Front Row Fireworks” at C.O. Brown are this Friday, July 14th.    Be listening all this week for a chance to win tickets to Friday’s game.

Home Run Derby

New York Yankees rookie Aaron Judge beat Minnesota Twins infielder Miguel Sano, 11-10 to win the Home Run Derby at the All Star Classic.   Judge hit one 513 feet. Miami outfielder and defending champion Giancarlo Stanton was knocked out in the opening round by Judge’s Yankee teammate Gary Sanchez.

Tiger All-Stars

Michael Fulmer and Justin Upton are in Miami to represent the Tigers in tonight’s  All-Star game.

Pistons Sign Bullock

The Detroit Pistons have re-signed small forward Reggie Bullock to a two-year contract worth $5 million. The 6-7 Bullock was an unrestricted free agent after the Pistons didn’t extend him a qualifying offer.  Former backup center Aron Baynes has signed with the Celtics for more than two million dollars less than he would have made with the Pistons.  The 30 year old opted out of the final year of his deal with Detroit, worth $6.5 million.  But Boston is regarded as more of a contender than the Pistons.  The Celtics also traded for former Piston Marcus Morris.

Red Wings

The Red Wings are on ice in Traverse City for their annual 5-day summer development camp.  It’s a chance for the team to get a look at their newest draft picks.  There are 11 in camp, but top draft pick Michael Rasmussen is taking it easy, after breaking his wrist in February.

Wimbledon

Rafael Nadal lost a nearly five hour match to Gilles Muller, ending his quest for a third Wimbledon title.  The match took so long that another fourth round match had to be bumped to today’s schedule.   Second seed Novak Djokovic takes on Adrian Mannarino.  Then it’s women’s quarterfinal action.   Venus Williams will take on Jelena Ostapenko, Johanna Konta faces Simona Halep, Svetlana Kuznetsova  plays  Garbine Muguruza  and Coco Vandeweghe will take on Magdalena Rybarikova.
