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 Major League Baseball Is Pausing For Rules Change http://wamc.org/post/major-league-baseball-pausing-rules-change <p>Major League Baseball is expanding its video review process next season.
