Angels 1, Dodgers 0 – John Lackey throws 8.2 of stunning ball, leaving runners on for Francisco Rodriguez to get the save.
Mets 3, Yankees 1 – We get Dr. Perez instead of Mr. Oliver at Shea, as he strikes out eight in seven innings. Carlos Delgado goes yard.
Blue Jays 1, Braves 0 – The road-awful Braves make A.J. Burnett look like he’s got the form Toronto signed him for over seven innings.
White Sox 5, Cubs 1 – The South Siders sweep the North Siders right back, with Carlos Quentin, Brian Anderson, and Jim Thome all hitting home runs.
Tigers 4, Rockies 3 – Detroit picks up its 15th win in its last 18 after a rally in the fifth inning. Tiger pitchers retired the last 17 batters in a row, and Dane Sardinha’s first major league hit (a triple) was part of that big fifth inning.
Rangers 5, Phillies 1 – Philadelphia is happy to have interleague end, as they’ve gone 4-11 this year. Eric Hurley gives up the only run in his 5.2 of work, Chris Davis homers, and Ian Kinsler is hitting .429 during his 12-game hitting streak.
Rays 4, Pirates 3 – Tampa Bay raises its lead over Boston to 1.5 games after back-up catcher Shawn Riggans gets three hits, including a homer, to support his battery mate Andy Sonnanstine’s work.
Twins 5, Brewers 0 – Minnesota will miss interleague, as Kevin Slowey finished off the Brewers with a shutout, getting support from a Delmon Young homer, a Carlos Gomez triple, and RBI hits from Jason Kubel and Alexi Casilla.
