Rays prospect gets 50-game suspension for throwing bat
The International League today suspended top Tampa Bay Devil Rays prospect Delmon Young 50 games without pay for throwing a bat that hit an umpire last month during a game at McCoy Stadium. Young was playing that night with the Triple-A Durham Bulls. Young had been out on indefinite suspension. His penalty is retroactive to April 27, the date of the incident in Pawtucket, the Associated Press is reporting.

Tonight's forecast in the Bronx: Rain, maybe
It won't be as bad as it was in Boston last week when the Yanks came to town, but the forecast is otherwise uncertain for tonight's Red Sox game at Yankee Stadium. There's a 50-percent chance of rain tonight in the Bronx, with temperatures expected to hover around 60.
Josh Beckett and Randy Johnson take the mound tonight to start the three-game set. Beckett was the MVP of the Florida Marlins' 2003 World Series victory over New York, while the Red Sox went 0-5 against the Big Unit last year. The game is scheduled to start just after 7.
