Yesterday's Rundown

James Shields goes the distance against the slumping Pale Hose. Nice line of 9IP 4H 1R 1ER 1 BB 9K to even his record at 1-1. It was his first CG in three years.
Matt Wieters had his best game of the season. He was 2 for 3 with 3R and 4RBI. Half of the Orioles are hitting under .240 so far. It’s time to move Wieters up in the order Buck. Quick note: Wieters is 5 for 5 with 8 RBI this year with RISP. I call that clutch Buck. Buck, are you listening or um reading?
Roy Halladay gets rocked last night. 6.2 IP 10H 6R 6ER 2BB 3K. I guess he gets rocked once every season. Once in spring, once in summer, and once in fall. That should still put him at 20-3 for the season.
Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder, Casey McGehee go 6 for 12 with 5R and 5 RBI. Is there a better 3-4-5 hitter group in the NL?
Brett Gardner goes 0-4 and is now hitting .128. How many of you reached for him in your draft thinking 100+ runs and 50SB? Ok I did in one league. His playing time is going to get drastically cut if they Yankees fall back to .500 on the season.
Mariano Rivera blows 1st save and get s a visit from the pitching coach while on the mound. 1st time that has happened since Buck Showalter was managing in 95’.
 NY Mets score 1 run. Trade away all your Mets players now. Trust me, they are that bad.
Josh Johnson has pitched 27 innings so far and only allowed 10 hits. Does anyone smell a no-no coming? He is now at 1.00ERA and a WHIP under 0.60. Why don’t I own this guy?
Drew Stubbs gets the HR-SB combo. He should have a dozen more combo games like this one.
I think the entire Angels team scored against Texas at home. Peter Bourjos, Maicer Izturis, and Mark Trumbo all go yard.
Cleveland 12-5 v KC 11-6 can those records be right? Bruce Chen is now 3-0 2.42ERA and 1.15 WHIP. KC fans whisper to each other “Greinke who?” Billy Butler doubles his career SB mark last night. I told you he would be running this year…get me 10SB Billy.
Pablo Sandoval now has an OPS over 1.000 after last night. OK I am convinced, the sophomore slump is behind him and I will try and target him in trades this week.

Brett Anderson dominates the Red Sox going 8 IP with 4H 0R 0ER and 8K to pick up the Win.

Brandon Beachy gets the first Win of his career. The Rookie, you should keep on your radar if not own, went 6IP allowing on 2H while picking up 7K. Getting 4HR from his teammates let him settle down and pitch effectively.

We have an Ichiro Suzuki sighting. He is starting to get hot after a slow start. He finished his night 4 for 5 with 3R 2RBI and 2SB. He is still hitting under .300 but that shouldn't last long after nights like this.
