Dempster's first pitch of the at-bat went behind A-Rod's knees, and the next two were inside before the fourth hit Rodriguez. The benches and bullpens emptied following the plunking, but order was quickly restored without further incident.</p><p>Then Rodriguez got the better of Dempster four innings later, hitting his 649th career home run. It sparked a four-run rally that turned a 6-3 deficit into a 7-6 lead.</p> Mon, 19 Aug 2013 11:38:50 +0000 Jaired Crofut 71700 at http://wamc.org Rodriguez Hits Revenge Homer Against Dempster WAMC Morning Edition Sports Update http://wamc.org/post/wamc-morning-edition-sports-update-52 <p>In the NCAA men’s basketball tournament there are 12 teams left.</p><p>Syracuse limited Indiana to its lowest point total of the season, forced 19 turnovers, compiled 10 blocks and held the normally efficient Hoosiers to 33 percent shooting.</p><p>Marquette built a double-digit lead in the first half and went on to a 71-61 win over Miami to earn a spot in the East Regional title game.</p> Fri, 29 Mar 2013 12:09:10 +0000 Jaired Crofut 60995 at http://wamc.org WAMC Morning Edition Sports Update In Bail Hearing, Pistorius Says Girlfriend's Death Was Accidental http://wamc.org/post/bail-hearing-pistorius-says-girlfriends-death-was-accidental Transcript <p>RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST: <p>Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius was back in a South Africa courtroom today in a bail hearing that sounded a lot like a trial. Both sides presented their versions of how it came to be that Pistorius killed his girlfriend. He admits he pumped four bullets through a bathroom door in the early morning hours of Valentine's Day. But he says he thought an intruder was behind the door and the death of Reeva Steenkamp was a horrible accident, not premeditated murder.
