Five Things For June 30th: Detroit Goes 7-2 On Latest Road Trip
1. Tigers Head Home After Texas Road Trip
The Tigers head home after an abysmal home series where they lost their Division lead. They swept the Cleveland Indians and the Texas Rangers. In their last series, they lost 2 of 3 but still finished the road trip 7-2. The Tigers head home for a series against the Athletics, Rays and Dodgers.
2. Tigers Honor 1984 World Series Team
The Detroit Tigers will honor the 1984 world series team, 30 years after beating the San Diego Padres 4 games to 1. Former Tigers Alan Trammell, Rod Allen, Dave Bergman and Lou Whitaker are some of the former Tigers that will make an appearance on Monday.
3. Mexico Out of the World Cup
For the 6th straight World Cup, Mexico has not advanced out of the Round of 16 after a 2-1 heart breaker against The Netherlands. The Netherlands scored two late goals to advance and will play Costa Rica who won in penalty kicks against Greece. Mexico will now regroup and focus on a new era of Mexican soccer where they look to regain dominance throughout Central and North America.
4. Jason Kidd Off to the Bucks
The Brooklyn Nets are interested in sending Head Coach Jason Kidd to the Milwaukee Bucks. Andy Katz of ESPN is reporting that the Bucks are offering a 2015 second-round pick but the Nets are looking for a 2015 first-round pick. If this trade goes through, Kidd will be the next coach of the Milwaukee Bucks opening up an interesting coaching vacancy as many believed that the Nets underachieved last year even though they made it to the playoffs.
5. Both Williams out of Wimbledon
Over the weekend Serena Williams lost in the 3rd round of the Women's singles which adds to the disappointment so far in major championships this year. She lost in the round of 16 in the Australian Open and the 2nd round in the French Open. Both Williams Sisters will look to get back on track as the next major championship is the US Open in New York.
