Wake N’ Blog For July 9th: It Is True, Wearing Pants And Underwear While Driving A Car Can Be Restrictive


MLB Roundup. Andruw Jones homered in his first three at-bats as the Rangers blow out the Angels 8-1. With the help of two errors by Seattle second baseman Jose Lopez, Baltimore stormed back with five runs in the 9th, beating Seattle 5-3. Striking out 11 and and yielding only 5 hits, Wandy “My Parents Must Have Hated Me To Give Me That Name” Rodriguez led the Astros to a 5-0 victory over the Pirates. Chris Volstad also pitched five-hit shutout, his first complete game, as the Marlins blanked the Giants 7-0. [ Scoreboard]

NBA. Rasheed Wallace made it official Wednesday by signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics. Next up for Boston, trying to lure Dikembe Mutombo or Hakeem Olajuwon out of retirement. You know, to infuse the roster with some young blood. [Boston Globe]

Tour de France. Thomas Voeckler won the stage, but Lance Armstrong remained in second place after the 5th stage, less than a second behind Fabian Cancellara. I’d like to see them do it on unicycles. That would take considerable skill. [Yahoo!/AP]

Man partially covered up with only a towel from the waist down pulled over by police informs them he lost his pants. 41-year-old Delaware resident Jonathan Schultz is facing drunken driving charges after police pulled him over for going 69 (dude!) in a 50-mph zone. Police discovered upon approaching the vehicle that Scultz “was driving commando.” Funny, I don’t remember that part from the Schwarzenegger flick. Did Alyssa Milano appear in that scene? [MSNBC]
