Some might think it was overkill to have three Sun reporters at a Monday night Orioles game. Nonsense. We knew something big would happen, and when the benches emptied yesterday, we were ready. Want proof? This is the Coffee Companion, your No. 1 source for compiled Sun sports stories, which recaps the local sports headlines every weekday morning.
- Dan Connolly caught up with Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette before last night's game and found out the team would not be negotiating in-season with any players, including Nick Markakis and J.J. Hardy.
- Lebron James scored 49 points as the Heat won 102-96 to take a 3-1 lead over Brooklyn, while Portland won at home to nick a game off the Spurs, who still lead the series 3-1, as well.
- Devante Smith-Pelly had a pair of goals and Nick Bonino added his fourth of the playoffs to give the Ducks a 4-3 win over Los Angeles and a 3-2 series lead. Montreal lit up the Bruins for a 4-0, Game Six home win to force a Game Seven in Boston.
