Over the years there have been plenty of great 1-2 combinations: Ruth and Gehrig, Spahn and Sain, Jackie and Pee Wee, Mays and McCovey, Seaver and Kooz, Newman and Redford, Fielder and Cabrera, Bonds and…Huh? Newman and Redford??? In 1969, veteran Hollywood actor Paul Newman and relative newcomer Robert Redford teamed up to star in one of the greatest and most fun westerns of all time, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Despite 13th inning home run, D-Backs fall

The streak continues, as does the heartbreak. Wade Miley pitched well enough to earn a win, but the bullpen let him down before Cody Ross hit a late game home run in the 13th. But the Mets had the last laugh, walking off in the bottom half of the inning to win, 5-4.
