Giants 2, DiamondBacks 0
Randy Johnson looked like the Big Unit of old, carrying a no-hitter into the 7th inning. Augie Ojeda broke up the no-hit bid with a double down the left field line to begin the 7th inning. Johnson struck out seven while walking two. The DiamondBacks could muster only one hit all game. Pablo Sandoval had 3 hits. The win was Johnson’s first of the season and first as a Giant. Brian Wilson picked up save #2.
Blue Jays 1, A’s 0
Ricky Romero continued his hot start at the Major League level. He struck out 6 and walked only two while allowing 4 hits in seven innings to earn his second victory without a loss. The only run of the game was an RBI single by Lyle Overbay. The Blue Jays are now 10-4 and looking like the darkhorse team in all of the AL.
Dodgers 14, Rockies 2
Matt Kemp doubled and homered twice. His numbers to start the young season are as fine as anyone’s in the land. Kemp has began the season by hitting in the first 13 games and now has 14 RBI. There was a Matt Belisle sighting in the game, but if you blinked you missed it (sort of). Belisle got one out and allowed 4 earned runs on 5 hits. We sure do miss him in Cincinnati. Dodgers are rolling at 10-3, they’ve won 8 in a row.
Yankees 7, Indians 3
You knew the Indians couldn’t win this series in the Bronx and hang a loss on A.J. Burnett, didn’t you? Carl Pavano was actually pretty good, but the Indians bullpen was the downfall. Jorge Posada homered and Cody Ransom drove in three runs. The Tribe was held to 4 hits on the day, two of which were homers (Choo, Garko).
