Stealing Signals: Getting Your New Manager a Win

Mets 5, Angels 4 (F/10)Oliver Perez squanders a 3-1 lead, but David Wright gets a two-out hit to score Jose Reyes in the bottom of the 9th (K-Rod’s 2nd blown save of the year.) Then, in the top of the 10th, Damion Easley, of all people, hits a solo shot for what would be the game-winning run.

Red Sox 7, Phillies 4 Really not used to the “J.D. Drew is clutch” stuff, even after last year. He goes 4-for-5 against the team that drafted him, falling a triple short of the cycle.

Rays 5, Cubs 4A four-run third provided most of the runs that Tampa Bay would need against Carlos Zambrano, who left in the 7th with shoulder discomfort.

Tigers 7, Giants 2Placido Polanco has four hits, drives in 2, and scores 3. Barry Zito gets battered again for his 11th loss on the season. Quoth Detroit’s Marcus Thames: “He was all over the place. I’ve never seen him like that.”

Diamondbacks 11, A’s 1Dan Haren gives up one run and clears the bases with a double off Joe Blanton. Chris Young and Stephen Drew both homered.

White Sox 8, Pirates 2Carlos Quentin, Brian Anderson, and Toby Hall all homer for Chicago.

Yankees 8, Padres 5The Bronx boys do the rare thing: smack Jake Peavy around. Johnny Damon had three hits and drove in two; A-Rod homered in his 4th straight game.  Brian Giles, Adrian Gonzalez, and Chase Headley add their own jacks for San Diego (Headley’s first of his career.)
