Angels 10, Astros 9
Chone Figgins went 6 for 6 last evening, including a game winning triple off Trever Miller which gave the Angels their 3rd straight victory. It’s not a typo, the guy really got 6 hits last night. For some men, that is a good season. K-Rod got his first win of the season in the victory. The Astros fell to 30-40 on the season and if the Reds were worth a shit the Astros might be looking at last place in the NL Central. Thank God for the Reds huh Astros fans?
Indians 10, Phillies 1
Casey Blake’s 26 game hitting streak was snapped but Cliff Lee and the Tribe had plenty of answers for the Phillies and Cole Hamels. Hamels was knocked from the game early, as Kelly Shoppach had 4 RBI, a homerun, and a double. Grady Sizemore had 2 hits (including a double), and stole his 20th and 21st bases of the season. Ryan Howard accounted for the only Phillies run with a homerun, his 15th of the season.
Brewers 5, Giants 4
Prince Fielder did what he does, hitting his 26th homerun of the season early to put the Brewers out to a nice 5-1 cushion. Rickey Weeks went 2 for 4 with 2 doubles and an RBI, while Barry Bonds went 1 for 2 with 2 walks, but was homerless on the night. Francisco Cordero is doing his best Bobby Thigpen impression, picking up his 26th save. How stupid it was for the Rangers to give this NASTY guy up for peanuts.
Mets 8, Twins 1
John Maine knocked the Twins back to .500 as he picked up his 7th win of the season. Maine twirled 7 and 1/3 innings allowing only 4 hits and 1 earned run. Carlos Silva picked up the loss for the Twins, allowing homeruns to Carlos Delgado and Ricky Ledee. Yes, Ricky Ledee is now a New York Met. How is this guy still hanging on?
