Stealing Signals: Three Times As Nice

Indians 3, Blue Jays 0; Blue Jays 3, Indians 0 – Same score, different winner. In the first game, Fausto Carmona destroyed the Toronto line-up. In the second game Cliff Lee and Shaun Marcum dueled, with Shannon Stewart and Aaron Hill winning it on a sac fly and two-run single in the 10th inning. Cabrera homered in the first game, making a hell of a day for him.

Rangers 13, Mariners 2 (F/10) – Six home runs hit in this game, including the game winning walk-off by Ramon Vazquez in the bottom of the 10th. Texas came back after going down 5-0 to Seattle early, and the Mariners scored four runs in the ninth to tie it up.

Astros 7, Giants 3 – Only in the current world of Barry Zito is a no-decision a good thing. The Giants should-have-been-ace gave up a 3-run lead, punctuated by a Lance Berkman home run, but did not give up the go-ahead run.

Cubs 12, Padres 3 – San Diego is truly helpless offensively, and Randy Wolf is displaying the form that had the Dodgers allowing him to walk after last year — he gave up 7 runs in four-plus innings (mostly thanks to a six-run fifth), and that’s way too much to give Carlos Zambrano to work with.

Nationals 10, Mets 4 – Odalis Perez drove in 2 runs himself to support his cause, and Jesus Flores and Lastings Milledge added two-run doubles off Nelson Figueroa and reliever Jorge Sosa for the blowout.

Pirates 5, Braves 0; Braves 8, Pirates 1 – Pittsburgh shuts out Atlanta in the first game with the help of a bases clearing double by Freddy Sanchez.  Tim Hudson owned the Pirate line-up in the second game, giving up an unearned run in seven innings. Mark Kotsay and Brian McCann drove in three each in the second contest.

Angels 10, White Sox 7 – Nick Adenhart gives up four runs in his start while Vladimir Guerrero homers and drives in four. The Pale Hose tried to make it close, driving in three runs late off of Chris Bootcheck and Scot Shields.
