Kennys Vargas is having a rough year. Vargas, 27, has been at Class AAA Rochester this whole season and is hitting just .214 with a .633 OPS. To make matters worse, Vargas had a rough end to Rochester's 3-2 loss to Syracuse on Monday. With the score tied 2-2, Vargas fielded a sharp ground ball at first base, stepped on the bag and attempted to throw home … but he tripped on the base and fell as the winning run crossed the plate.
Even after wins in its first two group stage matches, Mexico isn't assured of advancing to the World Cup round of 16. So there is plenty at stake for both sides when Mexico takes on Sweden at 9 a.m. (Ch. 9).
"The Twins are about 100 games out of the Wild Card and Cleveland will run away eventually. Time to trade assets."
