Morning Headlines: Matt Latos Surging, and Jonathan Vilma Files Another Lawsuit Against NFL



Going into the midway point of the MLB season, the Cincinnati Reds were winning in spite of pitcher Matt Latos. The Red’s big offseason acquisition had been a massive disappointment, and coming into this week, he was sporting allowing nearly 5 earned runs per game. That’s changed dramatically, as  Latos struck out seven and didn’t walk a batter as he dominated Giants hitters in his second straight complete game to give the Reds a 2-1 victory and improve his record to 7-2.

After giving up 7 earned runs in a loss to the Cleveland Indians last week, Latos has bounced back and pitched back-to-back complete games against the Milwaukee Brewers and the San Francisco Giants while allowing a mere 2 runs.


Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma filed a civil action lawsuit last night in the U.S. District Court in Louisiana in a last ditch effort to have the courts get him reinstated into the NFL as he faces a season long suspension.


Tramon Williams is confident the Packers’ “terrible defense” will improve.


Daunte Culpepper says he thinks he’s done playing.


If an NFL return to L.A. move will happen in 2013, the Chargers are the most likely to go.


49ers DE/OLB Aldon Smith incurred minor stab wounds breaking up a fight early Saturday morning.
