Rockies 19, Brewers 4 – Now that is an old-school Coors Field score for some new-school Blake Street Bombers. Garrett Atkins went four-for-four with six RBIs, Troy Tulowitzki had a homer and two doubles, Brad Hawpe went yard, and Matt Holliday went 2-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored. Yovani Gallardo got absolutely destroyed on the mound. The only notable part for the Brewers was Prince Fielder’s 34th homer.
Blue Jays 15, Yankees 4 – Chien-Ming Wang was due for a crappy start at some point. Toronto’s line-up just abuses Wang, leaving him raw. Vernon Wells drives in four, Frank Thomas drives in three, and A-Rod watches it all from the bench with a calf bruise after getting pelted yesterday.
Twins 11, Royals 4 – Michael Cuddyer and Torii Hunter both go deep and drive in three each against the hapless KC staff, which allowed every Minny starter to get a hit.
Reds 1, Dodgers 0 – That’s 27 straight innings, three games worth, of being shut out for the Dodgers, and it’s the first time it’s happened since 1966. Ken Griffey, Jr. drives in the only run with a single.
Giants 5, Nationals 0 – Nice to see a Bonds homer contribute to a Giant win for once, isn’t it? Matt Cain took things into his own hands on both ends, pitching six shutout innings and hitting his first career home run.
Red Sox 9, Angels 6 – 2B Dustin Pedroia plays the hero by slugging the tie-breaking homer in the fifth while Hideki Okajima earns the win in relief by continuing to shut hitters down.
White Sox 6, Indians 4 (F/13) – Juan Uribe gets his first walk-off home run in the 13th after Scott Podsednik singles with one out. Wouldn’t have been possible if A.J. Pierzynski hadn’t homered in the 12th to tie it up again, and Jose Contreras throws two innings out of the pen for the win.
Mets 4, Braves 3 – Man, Billy Wagner’s always gotta make it interesting, doesn’t he? The closer got his 350th save by getting the bases loaded with no outs, then getting Jeff Francoeur to ground out for a fielder’s choice and Andruw Jones to hit into a game ending 4-6-3 double play.
Cardinals 2, Padres 1 – There’s gotta be some sort of shame for Greg Maddux for being outdueled by Kip Wells, of all pitchers. Maddux gave up two runs in the first inning, but who expects Wells to only give up an unearned run in seven?
