Wake N’ Blog For August 24th: I Thought Only Wal-Mart Customers, Not Employees, Were Allowed To Behave Like Degenerates In The Store

wake-n-blogMLB Roundup. For only the second time in Major League history, an unassisted triple play (this one by Eric Bruntlett) ended the game in the Phillies’ 9-7 win over the Mets. Michael Cuddyer hit two home runs in the seventh inning, the first Minnesota Twin to ever accomplish that feat, as the Twins beat the Royals 10-3 to complete the three-game sweep. Jake Fox helped the Cubs avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of the Dodgers, going 4-4 as Chicago beat Los Angeles 3-1. [ Scoreboard]

Women’s Golf. The U.S. Women’s team defeated Europe 16-12 to win th Solheim Cup. []

PGA Tour. Ryan Moore shot a final round 65, including five consecutive birdies on the back nine to win his first career PGA Tour tournament, defeating Kevin Stadler on the third hole of a playoff at the Wyndham Championship. []

It’s a shame, really, as the guy was well on his way to doing absolutely nothing with his life by working at Wal-Mart. A 26-year-old employee is still on the loose after he allegedly took an aluminum bat off a shelf to hit 29-year-old assistant manager George Freibott approximately 12 times after Freibott wrote him up for poor job performance. It’s for reasons like this I refuse to enter a Wal-Mart. Just driving through the parking lot of one of their stores makes me feel like I need to take a shower. [Yahoo!/AP]
