The Doubledays are excited to announce that all current and retired military personnel will be admitted free of charge to the team's 7:05 pm game against the State College Spikes this Saturday, July 4.
The Doubledays led most of the game, but after a rally by the Crosscutters in the eighth and a walk off home run in the 11th, Auburn fell 5-4.

NY Yankees

When he finally awakened following Friday's night's extra-innings win, Yankees closer Andrew Miller headed to Yankee Stadium to throw long toss and a 30-pitch bullpen session Saturday morning, the latest step in his rehab from a strained left flexor muscle.
The walk-off hit was the Yankees' first of the season, Brian McCann's seventh of his career and it was his second walk-off home run as a Yankee.
It was a step in the right direction for Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka after back-to-back troublesome outings.
Brian McCann sent a walk-off three-run homer over the right-field fence in the 12th inning to push the Yankees past the Rays, 7-5, on Friday night at Yankee Stadium. It was the Yankees' first walk-off win of the year.
Two weeks ago, when he grabbed Alex Rodriguez's 3,000th hit -- a home run to right field -- there was nothing anyone could say or do to convince Zack Hample to return the ball to Rodriguez and the Yankees.
The Yankees decided to give veteran lefty CC Sabathia a few more days off before he makes his next start. Sabathia is now scheduled to pitch next week against the A's, instead of this weekend against the Rays.
The Yankees placed outfielder Carlos Beltran on the 15-day disabled list on Friday with a left oblique strain. The move is retroactive to Wednesday.
The Yankees and Alex Rodriguez have resolved the issue regarding bonuses under the provision of his contract related to historic statistical accomplishments.
After 65 days of relentless fan voting to determine starting positions players for the 86th All-Star Game, the largest All-Star balloting program in sports closed at 11:59 p.m. ET Thursday. Starting position players will be unveiled at 7:30 p.m. ET Sunday on the "Esurance All-Star Starters Selection Show" on ESPN.
Nathan Eovaldi credited his splitter, which complements his fastball, curveball and slider mix, as helping him log his career-high eighth victory in the Yankees' 3-1 win over the Angels in Anaheim on Wednesday.
On a seven-game road trip, the difference between finishing with three victories or five losses is substantial, and first baseman Mark Teixeira's deft glovework might have helped save the Yankees from a long, quiet flight back to New York on Wednesday.
Nathan Eovaldi tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings, and Garrett Jones smacked a long solo home run off Matt Shoemaker, helping the Yankees avoid a sweep by the Angels with a 3-1 win Wednesday at Angel Stadium.
Yankees left-hander Andrew Miller threw 20 pitches off a bullpen mound on Wednesday at Angel Stadium, and there is a chance that he could be activated from the disabled list before the All-Star break.
Ivan Nova pitched scoreless ball into the sixth inning Tuesday and, after running into trouble, was able to hand the ball off and allow Adam Warren to squelch the Angels' rallies. It still resulted in a 2-1 Yankees loss, but Alex Rodriguez said that he loved what he saw.
Albert Pujols and Erick Aybar hit back-to-back home runs in the sixth inning Tuesday night to lead the Angels to a 2-1 win over the Yankees at Angel Stadium, clinching a series victory over New York prior to Wednesday's finale.
As Yankees No. 2 prospect Aaron Judge winds down his Minor League career, there are few things he still has yet to accomplish before hitting the big leagues. But he managed to do something he had never done before Tuesday night.
The numbers never seemed to add up in Adam Warren's favor for a season-long stint in the rotation, and though the Yankees' right-hander was displeased by the decision to move him back to the bullpen, he was not surprised when manager Joe Girardi sat him down for the explanation.
CC Sabathia has allowed at least one home run in each of his last five starts, and with Mike Trout and C.J. Cron joining his hit list on Monday, it's official: No Major League pitcher has surrendered more round-trippers (19) than the big Yankees' left-hander has this season.
After weeks of speculation about how the Yankees would fit six starters into five slots, it appears that they have reached a decision, with right-hander Adam Warren identified as the odd man out.
Mike Trout did it all on Monday night, turning in a couple of run-saving, highlight-reel catches and clubbing another home run while leading the Angels to a 4-1 win over the Yankees in Southern California.
Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is enjoying one of the best stretches of his career, relishing his standing as a consistent annoyance for opposing pitchers. It is a hot streak that has now been recognized with an American League Player of the Week award.
Soccer took over Yankee Stadium on Sunday, when the city's newest rivalry, the expansion New York City Football Club vs. the Red Bulls, took place. The veteran squad showed who's boss, at least for one day, with a 3-1 victory.
The general rule is that the center fielder should catch anything that he can get to, but in the final milliseconds as Brett Gardner camped under Carlos Correa's fourth-inning fly ball, he flinched at the sight of another glove unexpectedly approaching.
Captivating the Minute Maid Park crowd for a second game in a row, Carlos Correa hit two doubles and scored two runs while Collin McHugh was stellar in eight innings of two-hit ball, propelling the Astros to a 3-1 win in the series finale on Sunday against the Yankees.
The Yankees selected right-hander Esmil Rogers to their active roster prior to Sunday's series finale against the Astros at Minute Maid Park, in need of some length for what manager Joe Girardi sees as a short bullpen.
Mark Teixeira's two-run double off Pat Neshek in the eighth inning proved to be the difference as the Yankees blew a big advantage, then reclaimed the lead and held on for a wild 9-6 victory over the Astros on Saturday at Minute Maid Park.

NY Mets

Once confident that he would avoid the disabled list, then not so confident, Michael Cuddyer took batting practice prior to Friday's game against the Dodgers and pronounced himself -- once and for all -- healthy enough to avoid an extended absence.
Desperate for offense, the Mets have discussed calling up last year's top Draft pick, outfielder Michael Conforto, who has been thriving at Double-A Binghamton since an early-season promotion. But the team has no plans to debut Conforto anytime soon, general manager Sandy Alderson said.
Smiling, laughing, joking -- "that joyful sound" back in his voice, as Terry Collins put it -- the David Wright who appeared at Dodger Stadium on Friday hardly resembled the version who first visited his teammates a month ago in San Diego. But an underlying sense of uncertainty continues to surround Wright and his return from spinal stenosis.
Despite the Mets' disappointing play in recent weeks, dropping from 10 games over .500 in late April to exactly .500 at the start of play Friday, team leaders have given "absolutely no consideration" to making a managerial change, general manager Sandy Alderson said.
No one has to read too much between the lines. Mets captain and third baseman David Wright isn't going to return from stenosis in his lower spine anytime soon. Consequently, if the Mets are going to find any help for their beleaguered offense, ranked 29th in the Major Leagues, it's going to have to be from elsewhere.
In the middle game of a three-game series between the Mets and Dodgers, a pair of aces will take the mound at Dodger Stadium on Saturday.
The Mets still aren't scoring particularly often, but on Friday night, at least, they managed to score enough. Kevin Plawecki hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, lifting the Mets to a 2-1 victory over the Dodgers on a night that saw Noah Syndergaard hold one of the National League's best offenses to two hits in six innings.
The Mets' team charter made an emergency landing Thursday night in Detroit to allow Mets radio play-by-play voice Howie Rose to see a doctor after feeling ill on board.
Entering Thursday, Double-A Binghamton pitcher Gabriel Ynoa had only tossed one nine-inning complete game in 93 starts. But the Mets No. 11 prospect one-upped himself in a 5-0 win over Erie.
Mets manager Terry Collins is out of ideas. He's tried shuffling the lineup, leaving his pitchers in to hit and playing a spattering of new faces. Nothing's worked -- the Mets' offense is still struggling.
