'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Happy:So what if there was a gale-force wind blowing out to right field? Wandy Rodriguez never goes deep, so he can be forgiven for pumping his first as he rounded first base after launching a home run into the Pirates' bullpen in the second inning.

Left out:On a day when the Pirates amassed 29 hits, Pedro Alvarez somehow managed to go 0 for 3. He struck out twice and walked twice.

Stock up:Jose Tabata went into the game batting 4 for 35. He went 4 for 4 Tuesday, including a three-run homer off Esmil Rogers.

Stock down: J.A. Happ may have killed his chances of winning Toronto's No. 5 rotation spot. The left-hander gave up seven runs on 12 hits in three-plus innings and raised his ERA to 20.57.
