On June 27, 2010 In a surprising swap between last-place teams, the Indians send Russell Branyan back to the Mariners in exchange for Class AAA outfielder Ezequiel Carrera and shortstop Juan Diaz. The trade allows the Tribe to put Matt LaPorta, a highly touted rookie acquired from Milwaukee in the trade for CC Sabathia two years ago, at first base, and for Seattle, the move is seen as a signal that GM Jack Zduriencik wants his players to know that winning is still a priority for the under-achieving M’s.
Fortitudo Bologna wins the 2010 European Cup, topping Heidenheim Heidekoepfe, 2 – 1, in 10 innings in the finale. Heidenheim becomes the first German team to win a Medal at a European Cup with their Silver; Markus Winkler throws nine shutout innings today to try to get them the Gold. Juan Pablo Angrisano drives in Jairo Ramos Gizzi with the winner. Bologna takes its third European Cup, its first since 1985.
