Angels 5, Mariners 4 – I only note the M’s for the awful streak they have been on, their team president ripping them, and then manager John McLaren going into a tirade that would have done Earl Weaver proud and Ozzie Guillen blush a little. The Mariners are 18 games under 500 and have lost 20 of their last 27.
Padres 2, Cubs 1 – Greg Maddux throws seven innings of one-run ball to stymie his former team, and the Pads get a run in the eighth to go ahead for the win.
Red Sox 5, Rays 1 – Josh Beckett pitches six solid innings in the battle of Boston and Tampa Bay for AL East supremacy.
Mets 5, Giants 3 – Jose Reyes singles, doubles, and homers to get the Metros on track for two out of three after getting shellacked in the first game of their series by San Francisco.
A’s 10, Tigers 2 – Oakland’s sweep of the Tigers sends them back to the Motor City to start a 10 game homestand after going 3-6 on the last road trip.
Reds 2, Phillies 0 – Brett Myers no hits the Phillies for 7.1, but then gives up an RBI double to Joey Votto, and Edinson Volquez gave up only two hits to silence the Phils’ bats.
Indians 15, Rangers 9 – Big winds in Arlington lead to four hits and six RBI for Ryan Garko, a three run jack for David Dellucci, and five hits from Ben Francisco. Cliff Lee gets the win despite giving up six runs.
Rockies 2, Dodgers 1 – Jeff Baker hits a two-run homer off Clayton Kershaw and Aaron Cook shuts down the offenisvely challenged Dodgers.
