He's no longer on pace for 140 home runs, but Tim Tebow hit his second in three games Sunday at Spirit Communications Park in Columbia, S.C.

If making the playoffs wasn't enough for Edmonton Oilers fans, those who buy in to 50/50 are in for a real treat come Wednesday. Although trade deadline acquisition David Desharnais helped to balance out Edmonton's attack, this is still a top-heavy offense.

Columbia defeated Augusta 14-7.

Fun fact: Tebow's two home runs are only one short of Michael Jordan's total for his entire minor league career.

Consumer Inflation Rises Marginally In March To 3.81%
Consumer price inflation has remained at 2.3 per cent in March, remaining at its highest year-on-year level since October 2013. Experts, including the Bank of England, reckon inflation could hit three per cent this year.

Plenty of mocked Tebow for taking a shot at professional baseball, but he hasn't exactly fallen flat on his face out there. Not bad for someone who hasn't played baseball regularly since his junior year of high school. Despite the age gap, the Mets are betting on Tebow being a hit for their organization. "That might not matter, but it might, too".

AT THE PLATE: Tebow is 3 of 13 (.230) with five RBIs. He struck out eight times and didn't have an extra base hit or an RBI.

Montgomery is getting the first chance to show what he can do as the fifth starter and he'll have to pitch well to keep the job. Said Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash: "Other than the ball that Longo hit, you didn't see him throw another pitch like that".

The Fireflies continue their opening homestand with a three-game set against the Hickory (North Carolina) Crawdads on Monday.
