White Sox 7, Tigers 0 – Gavin Floyd throws a gem on the South Side, no-hitting the Tigers for 8.1 (giving up a single to Edgar Renteria in the eighth) and the bullpen cleaned up the rest of it. Detroit is now 2-9 for the worst record in the majors and the most offensive potential unfulfilled as of yet.
Cardinals 8, Giants 7 (F/10) – Matt Cain knows this sinking feeling. Six innings of no-hit ball (and helping his own cause with a home run), and then the bullpen blows a five-run lead. Chris Duncan drives in the winning run in the 10th with a single.
Braves 10, Nationals 2 – Jeff Francoeur knocks in 7 runs total on two home runs and a two-RBI single to give John Smoltz plenty of run support.
Diamondbacks 10, Rockies 3 – Justin Upton is a freaking offensive machine. 3-for-3 with four RBIs as Arizona goes to 9-2 and the best record in baseball.
Red Sox 4, Yankees 3 – All about Manrram, as the Dreadlocked One drives in three of the four runs for Boston off of Mike Mussina via a homer and a 2-RBI double. The game was interrupted by rain delay, which allowed it to finish without the “observations” of Joe Buck and Tim McCarver as Jonathan Papelbon saved it up for Josh Beckett.
Brewers 5, Mets 3 – Downside to Johan Santana: he gave up 33 jacks to lead the AL last year, and he gave up three to Milwaukee in this one as Ben Sheets and crew held the Mets’ O to three runs. Bill Hall, Rickie Weeks, and Gabe Kapler (apparently Milwaukee offered enough to get him out of managing a Red Sox minor league affiliate) provided the yard shots.
