Sports 101: Five lessons from last week

Giants second baseman Kelby Tomlinson drives in a run with a base hit in the fourth inning against the Atlanta Braves, Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015, in Atlanta. It was his first start for the Giants and he went 2 for 4. He singled and scored as a pinch-hitter two days earlier in his first major league at-bat.

In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:

  • The Giants’ Kelby Tomlinson knows how to make an entrance.
  • The 49ers’ home field continues to be more of a disadvantage.
  • Troy Tulowitzki’s adjustment with his new team has been anything but rocky.
  • Mick Tingelhoff’s silence at his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction was actually an eloquent speech about the harmful effects the game has had on some of its players.
  • Given the A’s track record, newcomer Danny Valencia will someday be a newcomer to another team.
