Stealing Signals: Here We Go Again

Diamondbacks 5, Mets 4 – Billy Wagner coughs up a two-run lead in the ninth for a third straight blown save thanks to a Chris Young double.  A Justin Upton double and a Miguel Montero sac fly in the 10th provided the winning run.

Cubs 3, Braves 2 – Jim Edmonds ties it in the 9th with a homer, and then Reed Johnson gets plunked in the 11th pinch-hitting for Edmonds with the bases loaded for the second lamest walk-off ending in baseball.

Tigers 2, White Sox 1 – Miguel Cabrera hits a walk-off shot to sweep the first place South Siders. Hey, Tiger fans need something to cheer about.

Yankees 4, A’s 1 – Hideki Matsui celebrates his 34th birthday with a grand slam and Andy Pettitte gives up one run in eight innings.

Phillies 3, Marlins 0 – Jamie Moyer goes to 9-0 all time against Florida, throwing five no-hit innings and eight overall.

Padres 9, Dodgers 0 – Lousy comedown for Hiroki Kuroda. He threw a complete game shutout his last start; he followed that up by giving up five runs in the first inning. When Jake Peavy throws six innings of shutout ball, that’s a problem. Brian Giles hit a three-run jack and Adrian Gonzalez added a solo shot.

Indians 12, Twins 2 – Aaron Laffey makes the start for Cleveland’s depleted starting line-up, and gets plenty of run support as the Tribe assaults Livan Hernandez’s pitching.

Royals 6, Rangers 5 – Shortstop Mike Aviles and third baseman Alex Gordon hit two run blasts for KC to put them over the top and avoid a sweep.
