Stealing Signals: Wrecking Torre’s Return

Mets 8, Dodgers 4 – The Metropolitans get back to .500 via two David Wright home runs off Brad Penny, the first coming soon after a bizarre catcher interference call where Russell Martin misjudged just how big pitcher Claudio Vargas’ swing was.

Braves 8, Brewers 1 – Jorge Campillo gets his first two-run hit before leaving after five shutout innings of work with blisters. Mark Teixeira adds a three-run homer.

Blue Jays 12, A’s 0 – So that’s where all of Toronto’s offense is.  Jesse Litsch throws amazing ball to go 7-1.

Twins 5, Royals 1 – 11th loss in a row for Kansas City as Kevin Stowey throws his first complete game and Carlos Gomez gets four hits and two RBIs in the game.

Cubs 8, Rockies 4 – Chicago’s flying sky-high right now with Alfonso Soriano hitting lights-out and a come-from-behind win to give them the best record in the majors (for now).

White Sox 5, Rays 1 – John Danks gives up only one run over six innings and Joe Crede and Paul Konerko go yard for run support. Edwin Jackson gets battered for 10 of Chicago’s 11 hits.

Giants 4, Diamondbacks 3 – Randy Johnson ties Roger Clemens for second all-time on the strikeout list behind Nolan Ryan, but the bullpen gives up his lead via a Tony Pena walk and a Randy Winn home run (his second of the game.)
