Braves 8, Mariners 3 – Mark Teixeira goes deep three times (2 left-handed; one righty) and fills the absence of Chipper Jones in the line-up admirably. Tim Hudson gave up nothing in seven innings.
Angels 3, Phillies 2 – Jered Weaver only gives up one run in 5.1 compared to Cole Hamels’ three. Halos sweep the Phils with the help of a two-run Casey Kotchman homer.
Mets 3, Rockies 1 – That opens it up for New York, taking two of three from Colorado under interim manager Jerry Manuel. Mike Pelfrey throws six good innings. Didn’t know he had it in him. Carlos Beltran belts two run jack.
Dodgers 4, Indians 3 – Russell Martin hits the big two-run shot, but the L.A. bullpen kept the Tribe bats down after Chad Billingsley gave up three and threw a ton of pitches in five innings.
Twins 6, Diamondbacks 2 – Minnesota sweeps the leader of the worst division in baseball, as Brandon Webb has lost his last couple of starts.
Red Sox 5, Cardinals 3 – Boston avoids the sweep in extra innings thanks to Kevin Youkilis’ 2nd homer of the game in the bottom of the 13th. Aaron Miles was 5-6 in today’s game at the plate, and went 7-of-11 for the series.
A’s 7, Marlins 1 – Justin Duchscherer does a number on the Fish, giving up only a homer to Jeremy Hermida for his fourth straight win.
Yankees 4, Reds 1 – The Bronx boys avoid the sweep with Andy Pettitte throwing six scoreless innings and the bullpen only giving up a solo homer to Ken Griffey, Jr. Jason Giambi’s two-run double was the big blow.
Cubs 7, White Sox 1 – North Siders sweep at home thanks to Aramis Ramirez’s fourth homer in the three games and and a two-run homer from Eric Patterson (Corey’s brother.) Javier Vazquez gave up both those homers and got pounded for five runs as the Pale Hose lost their ninth road game in a row.
