Stealing Signals: 600

Reds 9, Marlins 4 – Ken Griffey, Jr. took a Mark Hendrickson breaking ball into the stands for the milestone, and Paul Bako added two homers (one 3-run and one 2-run) to beat up on Florida.  Edinson Volquez gets his 9th win; more impressively, this was the first start he gave up more than two earned runs in, bumping his ERA up to a still-miniscule 1.56.

Rays 13, Angels 4 – Evan Longoria (2 homers), Willy Aybar, and Dioner Navarro (4 hits, 4 RBI) go back-to-back-to-back on Joe Saunders, and it only got worse from there.

White Sox 7, Twins 5 – Nick Swisher goes deep from both sides of the plate, Paul Konerko goes yard, and the Pale Hose sweep Minnesota.

Giants 3, Nationals 2 – Another four game sweep, as Matt Cain gets his first win since May 18th while his teammates get some timely knocks against the second-straight Nats call-up starter.

Indians 8, Tigers 2 – Cliff Lee gets his 10th win while Ryan Garko and Kelly Stoppach homer off of Dontrelle Willis, who gives up all eight runs in an inning and a third. Ouch.

Pirates 5, Diamondbacks 3 – Chippy game in the heat, and the Pirates pulled out runs on singles and other chip shots off of Randy Johnson.

Royals 3, Yankees 2 – Jose Guillen takes Mariano Rivera out in the 9th; Rivera has coughed up saves via the longball to David DeJesus and now Gullen in the last couple games.

Mariners 3, Blue Jays 2 – Boring old 10th inning, I suppose. Walk the bases loaded, Miguel Cairo executes a squeeze bunt, and Seattle goes on for a rare road win.
