Stealing Signals: Battling In The East

Mets 6, Phillies 3A 3-run homer from Mets SS Jose Reyes in the sixth provides the margin of victory, and this time Billy Wagner is around to help keep the bullpen from completely blowing the lead.

Angels 14, Indians 11The Angels aren’t known for outslugging teams, but catcher Jeff Mathis led the Halos with four hits and six RBI (including a grand slam) and 1B Casey Kotchman had a career high five hits. Starters John Lackey and Aaron Laffey gave up six and eight runs, respectively.

Brewers 3, Cardinals 0Third straight complete game for C.C. Sabathia as a Brewer is a three-hitter. Never mind the whole lifting the Brewers back into second on the NL Central, he’s preserving the bullpen for everyone else, and that’s kind of worth it in and of itself.

Rays 4, A’s 3If you’re gonna head back to the minors after the game, do what Ben Zobrist did: homer and drive in two runs.

Rockies 5, Dodgers 3In the race to suck more in the NL West, Colorado knocks two away from the Dodgers by knocking Hiroki Kuroda around early (the Japanese import is now 2-7 on the road.)

White Sox 10, Rangers 8Ozzie Guillen’s already been tossed an inning earleir? OK, go on a five-run rally in the eighth capped by a Carlos Quentin three-run jack.

Red Sox 6, Mariners 3First sweep in Seattle for the BoSox in 15 years, spurred on by a 12th inning two-RBI single by Mike Lowell.

Cubs 10, Diamondbacks 6Reed Johnson hits homers? Who knew? He got four hits plus the grand slam that broke the game open.
