Top 4 Sports Stories of the Day

Fittingly, the Chicago Cubs marked Wrigley Field's 100th birthday with a loss - a dramatic, error-filled one, at that. One out from victory, the Cubs allowed the Arizona Diamondbacks to rally for five runs in the ninth inning in a 7-5 loss Wednesday. After an error by shortstop Starlin Castro, Martin Prado hit a two-run single off Pedro Strop , Miguel Montero had a tying single against James Russell and Aaron Hill followed with a two-run triple off Justin Grimm. Let’s hear it for the underdogs in the early going of the NBA playoffs. And maybe the start of a new era of parity that stands to deliver more postseason games to the league and its networks. The Memphis Grizzlies, seeded No. 7 in the west, split two games in Oklahoma City. The Atlanta Hawks, bottom seed in the east, did the same at Indiana. Both No. 6 seeds, Golden State and Brooklyn, also got road splits in their first two games against the L.A. Clippers and Toronto, respectively. Meantime, superpowers Miami and San Antonio both needed big efforts to pull out competitive opening home game wins in their series. He's fast ... they were faster. Terrell Owens broke out his track cleats today for a 40-yard sprint against two former NFL players -- Justin Tryon and Paul Pratt ... but in the end, he just couldn't keep up. It all went down in Calabasas, CA -- where the 40-year-old wide receiver got off to a slow start and just couldn't make up the gap. Only one road team in the NBA Playoffs was able return home with a 2-0 series lead for Game 3, the Washington Wizards. After outscoring the Chicago Bulls an average 101.5-96 for the first two games, the Wizards will return home to the Verizon Center with skyrocketing secondary market prices. Wizards playoff tickets have increased 88% in price on the secondary market over the past week and are up 108.1% since the end of the regular season.
