At 36-52, the Milwaukee Brewers have not given their fans much of a reason to cheer this season.

Unless it comes to a deep drive toward the center field wall and the chance to watch Carlos Gomez possibly deny a batter of a home run.

Gomez did it again last night, jumping up for his fourth home run robbery of the season (no one else in baseball has more than two) in especially dramatic fashion:

Milkwaukee was up by a run. There was a man on base. All-Star Joey Votto was at bat with two outs in the top of the ninth inning... when this happened:

Aaron Hernandez's accommodations in jail as he awaits trial for murder are the subject of great concern, the American Civil Liberties Union believes.

Aaron Hernandez Handcuffs

In a recent blog post, the ACLU laments the damage being done to Hernandez as he remains in protective custody, also known as solitary confinement.

The ACLU argues that in reality, this can do more damage than good, and that many countries "recognize solitary confinement as a form of torture."

"Regardless of what you think of Aaron Hernandez, it's important to take a minute and remember he has not yet been convicted," ACLU.org wrote.

"In the eyes of the law, he is innocent until proven guilty. But, awaiting trial, he is locked alone in a small room with little or no human interaction for over 20 hours a day."

Embattled rapper 50 Cent has been dropped from baseball's All-Star Bash in new York in the wake of his domestic violence scandal, according to TMZ.

50 Cent Smile

50 was all set to perform at the MLB party July 14 along with Kaskade, but the league has decided not to move forward with that for obvious reasons.

He was charged with domestic violence last week following an alleged domestic dispute in California in June, though he denies kicking his baby mama.

The MLB hasn't confirmed this, but instead of 50 Cent headlining, the event's Facebook page now promises two "surprise performances" for the party.

It's been quite a surprising recent turn of events for 50, who was also involved in a nasty exchange with his son Marquise, 16, over text message.

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray provided a funny viral moment yesterday when he momentarily forgot to hug his mother following his historic victory.

After becoming the first British player to win Wimbledon in 77 years, the 26-year-old climbed into the stands to celebrate with everyone in his camp.

With one notable exception.

"Obviously when I'm playing the match, I've got no idea where everyone is, but yeah, I pretty much left her out,'' Murray told Today Monday morning.

Judi Murray, 53, wasn't having it. "I heard her screaming at me to come back when I was on my way down," Andy said, and then embraced his mum.

Mother and son have been practically inseparable during his career; Judi's fist-pumping and vocal support are noteworthy even by tennis mom standards.

It's no wonder she burst into tears of joy after he bested Novak Djokovic ... and it's likely she and Kim Sears will never let him hear the end of this one.

Lawrence Taylor Jr., the son of NFL legend Lawrence Taylor, has been arrested for rape in Georgia. He was booked July 7 on three criminal counts.

The younger LT faces charges of statutory rape, aggravated child molestation, and statutory aggravated sodomy. Each of these offenses is a felony.

His famous father, sadly, has a similar booking sheet.

Lawrence Taylor was arrested for rape in 2010 after having sex with an underage prostitute; he pleaded guilty to one count of patronizing a prostitute.

He also copped a plea to a misdemeanor charge of sexual misconduct, and was sentenced to six years probation. He is registered as a sex offender.

In Jr.'s case, the accuser is a female under 16.

ESPN the Magazine takes issue with the naked bodies of numerous athletes this week... literally!

For the fifth consecutive year, the publication turns its pages over to stars from the world of basketball, football, snowbarding, MMA and a lot more, as images of Miesha Tate nude and other birthday suit-wearing beauties grace the inside of the annual Body Issue.

  • Courtney Force Nude
  • Tyson Chandler Nude

“One of the biggest common misperceptions about women’s mixed martial arts is that we’re not feminine,” Tate says. “So for me it’s important to show that women in this sport are comfortable about their bodies."

She makes that VERY clear in the following picture.

Even before Andy Murray won Wimbledon on unday, the 26-year-old Scot had already claimed an equally impressive championship crown:

Better-half of the hottest member of the British sports WAGs club!

Murray's girlfriend, Kim Sears, perennially steals the show at Wimbledon and all of his major events. Here's a brief breakdown on the British beauty:

  • Kim Sears, Andy Murray
  • Kim Sears and Andy Murray

Sears has been with Murray for awhile. The tennis great first brought her to one of his tournaments back in 2006 when they were both just 18 years old.

According to The Telegraph, Murray won his first title as a professional in San Jose, Calif., that same year, and celebrated in the stands with Kim.

Kevin Durant will be a married man soon. The Oklahoma City Thunder is engaged to Monica Wright, a guard who plays for the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx!

He proposed and she accepted after her win Sunday against the Phoenix Mercury.

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the couple, both 24, have known each other since the 2006 McDonald’s High School All-American Game.

Wright, a 5-foot-11 guard, was the #2 overall pick in the 2010 WNBA draft. She averages 9.0 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists a game this season.

Durant, one of the NBA's biggest superstars for years now but also one of its most unassuming, and Wright have kept their relationship quiet.

Even as recently as May, a Fox Sports article about Durant made no reference to his friendship with Wright but not the two being romantically involved.

Congratulations to the basketball-playing pair!

Andy Murray won Wimbledon Sunday, ousting Novak Djokovic and giving Great Britain its first home-grown champion of tennis' biggest event in 77 years.

Murray, the tournament's #2 seed, bested #1 seed Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4.

With Kate Middleton due any day now ... quite a week for the UK!

Fred Perry was the last British man to win Wimbledon in 1936. Queen Elizabeth II was 10 years old and may actually remember that, but few others do.

Andy Murray, 26, hails from Dunblane, Scotland ... which is currently setting the record for most pints consumed by a single town in a single day.

He won the 2012 U.S. Open as well as the Olympics, which were held at Wimbledon, but had yet to break through in the tournament he coveted most.

Andy had been knocking on the proverbial door for some time, reaching the semifinals each year from 2009-2011, then losing 2012's final to Roger Federer.

Today he was finally able to get it done, despite facing the world's top-ranked player (and 2011 Wimbledon champion) in Djokovic. Congratulations, Andy!

The Canadian actress tied the knot with her longtime, hockey star love Dion Phaneuf Saturday, according to the Journal Pioneer of Prince Edward Island.

Cuthbert wed the Toronto Maple Leafs captain at the St. James Catholic Church in Summerfield, P.E.I., with a reception for nearly 300 guests at Phaneuf's home.

Toronto Star reporter Rosie DiManno live-tweeted the hockey star's nuptials from inside the church (which was fittingly decorated with maple leaves).
