Phillies 10, Blue Jays 3 – Jayson Werth goes deep three times and sets the Phillies record with 8 RBIs driven in. The Jays’ David Purcey gets victimized for two of them, is sent down to Triple A immediately afterwards.
Angels 4, Dodgers 2 – Joe Saunders gets to 7-1 by only giving up a two-run jack to Andre Ethier.
Rangers 16, Astros 8 – Josh Hamilton goes 5-for-5 with two homers, as Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Michael Young, David Murphy, and Chris Shelton all take the Houston pitching staff deep.
White Sox 2, Giants 0 – Alexei Ramirez fills in for Juan Uribe and hits it out for the only runs of the game. Gavin Floyd and four relievers shut San Francisco’s lousy line-up out.
Diamondbacks 4, Tigers 3 – Dan Haren pitches seven solid, Eric Byrnes hits a homer and drives in two.
Twins 4, Rockies 2 – Colorado keeps falling, losing its sixth straight as Nick Blackburn pitches six innings to get the win. Clint Barmes was a homer short of the cycle in the losing effort.
Cubs 7, Pirates 4 – Alfonso Soriano hits two homers in his first two at-bats. Mark DeRosa and Geovany Soto add jacks to help Sean Gallagher, who gets his first win with six innings of one-run work.
