Phillies 11, Mets 10 – The bad teams always find a new fucking way to lose. The Mets may be a bad team masquerading as a quality one — loss by blowout, walk-off homer, dumb-ass base running, and finally, walk-off single in extra innings. Jesus fucking Christ.
Yankees 5, Red Sox 0 – Wang slaps Boston on the chin by taking a no-hitter into the seventh for a three-game sweep. Two homers by Robinson Cano and four hits from Derek Jeter make it worse.
Indians 6, Mariners 5 – No worse way to lose a game than the walk-off walk, which is what Rick White did by walking Kenny Lofton with the bases loaded in the 9th.
Cubs 5, Brewers 4 – Matt Murton and Alfonso Soriano continue to drag Chris Capuano through the lost starts streak from hell with back to back jacks.
Rangers 5, White Sox 1 – Four errors by the White Sox defense leads them to heading 20 games under .500 for the first time in decades. When you make Texas’ pitching look good, you’re a bad team.
Diamondbacks 8, Padres 7 – Chris Young (the pitcher) couldn’t hang in his second start off of injury problems. D-back rookie Mark Reynolds nailed five hits wtih a homer, as Arizona holds on.
Reds 5, Pirates 4 – Cincy shortstop Brandon Phillips goes into the outfield to throw out Josh Phelps at the plate to end the game. Ken Griffey, Jr. gets the pop-fly single for the go-ahead run in the 9th.
Tigers 6, Royals 1 – Jeremy Bonderman gets his first win in six starts via some help from Magglio Ordonez and Curtis Granderson (both had a homer and three hits), along with seven good innings of work.
Astros 2, Cardinals 1 – A pitching duel between teams with bad pitching, and Matt Albers beats Joel Piniero, as Lance Berkman homers to make the difference.
