Phillies 5, Mets 4 – Chase Utley goes deep off of Mike Pelfrey twice to get a 4-0 lead going, the Phillies then give it all back later, and Pedro Feliz, of all people, takes Pedro Feliciano out in the 7th for the game-winning run. Blech.
Red Sox 6, Rangers 5 – Four run rally in the eighth (and since this is Texas pitching, capped by a bases-loaded walk to Sean Casey) leads Boston to another come-from-behind win.
Reds 4, Brewers 3 – Ah, Eric Gagne. A running joke for the entire season, all just for us. Two home runs and an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th (the latter off Salomon Torres) seal the deal.
White Sox 6, Rays 0 – John Danks blanks ’em in seven innings, bullpen keeps it up, and Jim Thome drives in three, including career homer #512.
Cubs 13, Pirates 6 – Four hits for Aramis Ramirez, including a two-run jack, as the Cubs beat up on Zach Duke and then the Pirates bullpen.
Athletics 7, Royals 1 – Um, someone forgot to tell the A’s they were supposed to really suck this year. Break a three-game skid by beating up on Luke Hochevar and are tied with the Angels for 1st in the AL West.
Braves 6, Dodgers 1 – Jair Jurrjens throws seven innings while only giving up a homer to Russell Martin and striking out Fat Andruw Jones (fellow Curacao native) three times
