The Hall of Fame announced Thursday it will present the Buck O'Neil lifetime Achievement Award to Rachel Robinson July 29 in Cooperstown ceremonies honoring two pioneering African-American women. Journalist Claire Smith is to receive the J.G. Taylor Spink Award for meritorious contributions as a baseball writer. Robinson established and headed the Jackie Robinson Foundation, in memory of her late husband, who broke baseball's color line 70 years ago last month. Hall chairman Jane Forbes Clark said, "Rachel Robinson has worked tirelessly to raise the level of equality not only in baseball, but throughout society."

Tough second inning for Rich Hill as he scuffled through a 36-pitch inning that included four walks and some words with umpire Rob Drake about the strike zone. He was lucky to survive with just the two runs Kolten Wong drove in. Between his issues with blisters and shaky command when he has been able to pitch, Hill is a long way from the starter who had a 2.12 ERA last season.
