The Broncos’ Von Miller caught a 9 1/2-foot hammerhead shark last week during a fishing trip off the coast of Miami, but the linebacker is facing some heat.
According to a report from TMZ.com, Miller is being investigated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on whether he violated any rules in catching the shark. The probe comes after Miller posted photos and video posing with a shark that’s covered in bloody smudges.
PETA made the FWC aware of the social media posts and said the organization would “ensure that Miller is held accountable if killing this animal, was, as we suspect, illegal.”
For the Yankees, injured Aaron Hicks, who was set for a rehab start Monday night and could rejoin the Yankees in Boston, is 8-for-23 (.348) against Sale, but he’s the only current Yankees player with any success against the skinny left-hander — this Yankees group hits a combined .183 with one homer in 126 at-bats against Sale.
Aaron Judge heads the futility list, coming in 0-for-12 with 10 strikeouts against Sale. Brett Gardner is 4-for-23 (.174) and Gary Sanchez 3-for-17 (.176) with seven strikeouts.
Sanchez, off to a dreadful start at the plate, missed the last two games with a sore calf, but he hopes to play Tuesday night.
Holland then walked Orlando Arcia, and three-time All-Star closer was pulled.
“I hope it’s a rarity, but sometimes you just don’t have a good feel for the strike zone,” Holland said. “Obviously today I struggled with my command kind of from the go.”
St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said Holland won’t let this debut affect him down the road.
“We threw him right into the fire. It was a tough spot,” Matheny said. “To me it’s one of those where we let go and we know what we’re going to get from him. He’s a pro, and he’s going to keep working to get sharp and we know what we’re going to get.”
Matt Albers (2-0) gave up the tying run in the ninth. The Cardinals loaded the bases with no outs, and Dexter Fowler’s sacrifice fly tied it at 4.
Albers threw a scoreless 10th.
