Stealing Signals: A-Rod Moves Up The List

Yankees 15, Red Sox 9 – Football score. A-Rod hits career jack #522, every New York starter has a hit, both Chien-Ming Wang and Clay Buchholz get torn up.

Cubs 12, Reds 3 – Carlos Zambrano throws seven strong and goes 3-for-4 at the plate while Derrek Lee is already off to a quick start with homer #6 of the season.  The North Siders had 10 runs at the end of the third inning after spanking Josh Fogg hard early.

Mets 5, Nationals 2 – Big difference from Carlos Beltran’s 3-run shot, plus solo jacks from Jose Reyes and Ryan Church off the Nats’ staff. Washington has lost 11 of its last 12 games.

Tigers 12, Indians 3 – Yeah, those are the Detroit bats we were expecting all along.  C.C. Sabathia has a 13.50 ERA after giving up nine runs in 4+. Edgar Renteria had a 5-RBI night (four of those via a grand slam) and Miguel Cabrera had four hits.

Dodgers 8, Pirates 1 – Rafael Furcal goes 4-for-4 with a jack and James Loney is off to a fierce 15-game hitting streak to open the season (as is Pirates CF Nate McLouth).

Royals 3, Angels 2 – Three runs off hits and an error in the 2nd against Jered Weaver provided enough of a margin for Gil Meche to get a win with six innings of two-run ball.

Rockies 10, Padres 2 – Justin Germano and the rest of the Padres staff may not be big fans of this particular type of Atkins Diet: Garrett Atkins went 4-for-5 with two RBIs, leading the Rockies’ offense as it then exploded on the Padre pen for seven runs in the ninth.

Rangers 7, Blue Jays 5 (F/14) – A.J. Burnett comes in during extras for a relief appearance and gives up the go-ahead run on a wild pitch. Josh Hamilton went 4-7 with 2 RBIs, Frank Catalanotto homered, and Milton Bradley drew five walks while going 2-for-3.
