KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jordan Zimmermann kept throwing strike after strike, at a near-record pace. Zimmermann picked up his first victory in seven starts, and Nicholas Castellanos and Mikie Mahtook hit two-run homers as the Detroit Tigers beat the sputtering Kansas City Royals 10-2 Monday night. Zimmermann threw 79 strikes in 97 pitches. His 81 percent strike rate was the highest by a major league starter since 2008.

July 7 (UPI) --Andre Roberson got the opposite of the reaction he was hoping for from his Oklahoma City Thunder teammates Thursday when feeling the heat from giving a low restaurant tip.The Thunder forward was called out on Thursday by a waiter on Twitter. The waiter wrote: "Get paid 30 million for 3 years and tips this!!! You're trash."The photo showed a $ 487.13 bill, with Roberson leaving a $ 13.97 tip. Roberson wrote that the total came out to $ 500, but his math is wrong. To total $ 500, Roberson would have had to tip $ 12.87."Shouldn't have had to tip you it was just a bottle at a bar...there was no service...now I can see if it was a club! You Reaching bro," Roberson responded to the tweet.While many in the Twitter-verse sided with the waiter, several users backed Roberson.Shouldn't...
