What's the best way to get up-to-date baseball scores on the iPhone?

It's baseball season, and I need real-time access to scores so I can obsess over my fantasy teams. Who's got the best interface? Here are my requirements, in order:

- Real-time, or as close as possible
- Drill down into box scores/scoring plays
- iPhone-specific interface, or at least nicer than basic WAP text
- Free
- Push/auto-refresh

I know about Pickleview, which is slick, but the scores seem to lag badly and the drill-down is weak.

Any recs? Any of the big boys built an iPhone interface yet? Nice (low-bandwidth) web pages are an option, since I've got Safari, but no Flash or Java. I'm willing to pay a subscription, but the app had better be good.

There is an iPhone interface for the Score's web site.

I use Streaming Scores. It's very up-to-date, but I find the interface a little clunky.

I was wondering this as well. The ones mentioned here (they seem to be the best so far) and a couple others can be found here: Apple - Web Apps - Sports

I found that www.sportstap.mobi has the most recent content. Additionally each sport gets its own URL so you can bookmark the ir respective pages, rather than navigating to baseball-specific scores.

Seconding SportsTap. It is the most current and has a great iPhone interface.
