Angels 10, Yankees 6
Jeff Weaver beat his old team and new rookie Tyler Clippard. Robinson Crusoe Cano had 2 hits and 3 RBI but the Angels of Anaheim got homeruns from Casey at the bat Kotchman and Chione (say it like “Shawn”) Figgins. The Yankees now find themselves 10 1/2 games out of first place after winning the series in Boston against the Red Sox.
Phillies 8, Braves 3
Jamie Moyer beat the Atlanta Braves for the first time since 1987, when I was 5. Ryan Howard opened the scoring for the Phillies with a 2-run double. That little weasel Jason Werth hit a pinch hit homerun. Tim Hudson gave up 5 earned runs and 10 hits over 6 2/3 innings to go to 5-3 on the season.
DiamondBacks 13, Astros 3
You might want to get to know the name Mark Reynolds. In his 10th big league game, he went 5 for 5 with 4 RBI and 2 homeruns. He’s hitting .459 to start his career. Woody Williams is now 1-7 on the season, and his only win was against the Reds so he basically has been useless. Morgan Ensberg hit his 4th homerun of the season while Edgar Gonzalez got his 2nd win of the season for the Dbacks.
Mets 6, Marlins 2
Aaron Heilman got his 5th win of the season in relief as the Marlins dropped to 7 1/2 games back of the first place Mets. The win was the 30th of the season for the Metropolitans. Paul Lo Duca had 4 hits (so glad I just cut him in fantasy), and Sergio Mitre didn’t allow an earned run in 7 2/3 innings.
