The Wildcats managed a short two-out rally in the top of the ninth, but Louisville closer Lincoln Henzman was just too much for Kentucky in the end. Game, Cardinals, 5-2.

I suggest he could throw coconuts to stay in shape. He says, yes, that would work and so would climbing trees.
Speaking of islands, we happen to be on one called New York City, and Syndergaard tells me there’s this restaurant in Tribeca where he orders steak with lobster on top.
