Stealing Signals: This Guy Was Managing Last Year

Brewers 9, Mets 7 – Gabe Kapler was managing in the Red Sox system last year and now he’s contributing to Milwaukee as the team waits for Mike Cameron. Another homer and three runs driven in to help teams take two out of three from the Mets. The Mets hit into five double plays over the last five innings to eliminate situations where they had runners on base.

White Sox 11, Tigers 0 – Eight of those runs came off grand slams given up by Kenny Rogers and Rich Miner to Paul Konerko and Joe Crede, respectively.  The Tigers have to be able to snap out of this, right? You can’t have all that offensive talent and potential and be that horrific, can you?

Padres 1, Dodgers 0 – Greg Maddux throws five good innings and leaves the rest to the bullpen, which doesn’t have to do too much when the Dodgers struggle to hit (including Andruw Jones’ now .100 batting average.)

Red Sox 8, Yankees 5 – Daisuke Matsuzaka’s five innings were a bit rougher than Maddux’s, with quite a bit of control issues, but Boston manages to pull the game out by being able to run on Jorge Posada’s bad shoulder behind the plate (Jose Molina got pulled when he pulled a hamstring.)

Royals 5, Twins 1 – Break up KC. The hitters knock around Francisco Liriano as Brian Bannister throws a three hit complete game.

Cubs 6, Phillies 5 (F/10) – Philly’s defensive problem bites them in extras: when Carlos Zambrano (pinch-hitting due to lack of position players) hit what should have been a double play ball, Chase Utley’s throw was too low for Ryan Howard — allowing Ronny Cedeno to score.

Rockies 13, Diamondbacks 5 – Four RBIs for Clint Barmes (filling in for Troy Tulowitzki), three a piece for Matt Holliday and Garrett Atkins.
