Daily Roundup, 04/25/11

- The Yankees were no-hit by Philip Humber for 6.1 IP. He ended up throwing 7 innings of one-hit, shutout ball.
– The final score was 2-0, which is tied for the lowest-scoring game in Yankee Stadium III history. The other was a fifteen-inning game.
— AJ Burnett took the loss for going eight innings and giving up one run. The last time he went eight innings and gave up one run, he… lost, 1-0, to Bryan Bullington of the Royals, last August.

- Brad Hawpe double! And he actually had another hit!
– Ryan Ludwick homer!
— the Padres are getting all these runs in support of – Dustin Moseley?!
—- and off Derek Lowe, who’s been very good so far?!
—– The Padres hadn’t had a HR at home since April 10, a total of eight games. I know, it’s the Padres. And I know, it’s Petco. But oh dear.

- Kosuke Fukudome has five hits tonight.
– The Cubs had ten hits, and the Rockies had four. The Rockies won 5-3.
— Maybe because Starlin Castro had three errors in one inning (!!!).
—- Sadly, with this loss the Cubs fall to 10-12. This means they cannot be 11-11 to go along with all their other .500 records.

- The Angels scored no runs against John Lackey or Dice-K, but they’ve scored five runs against Gio Gonzalez tonight in five innings.
– Gio Gonzalez had a 1.50 ERA against the Angels last year, in two starts.

- Brandon Wood, in his debut with the Pirates, went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and no strikeouts.

- Corey Patterson homer
– on 0-2.
— h/t @junkstats, Jose Bautista is homering on 5.7% of his swings this year. That’s not at-bats. It’s swings.

- Jon Weisman over at Dodger Thoughts is much better at writing than I am, and I highly recommend his writeup of tonight’s game, or at least the bottom of the ninth.
– To take from him: The Dodgers fell behind 2-1 on the two Coughlan homers, but came back thanks to Rod Barajas reaching first base after striking out on a wild pitch, Ivan De Jesus getting his second hit of the game (and third of his career), Jon Garland laying down a sacrifice bunt, Aaron Miles driving in a run with a groundout and then Carroll, looking like a hero, delivering an RBI single for a 3-2 lead.
— In the bottom of the ninth, Jamey Carroll misplayed a ball that caused the tying run to score. It would’ve been the last out of the inning.
—- Omar Infante got the winning hit. In the eighth inning, as the tying run, he was thrown out trying to go to third base.

- Ian Kennedy just threw a complete game shutout against the Phillies to outduel Cliff Lee.
– Lee struck out twelve, but gave up home runs to Chris Young and Gerardo Parra.
— Kennedy struck out ten and walked no one himself.
—- The entire Phillies pitching staff has given up as many home runs as Armando Galarraga.

    -With his five hits, Fukudome is now batting .478.
    – His slugging percentage is just .500, his lone extra-base hit being a double in Sunday’s game.

  2. Chad says:

    - Jered Weaver became just the fifth pitcher since 1900 to record his sixth win of the season before the end of April. (It’s the sixth time a pitcher has done this, though; Randy Johnson did it twice.)
    –There are still five days left in the month, meaning he could potentially get another start this month on normal rest. No pitcher has ever won 7 games by the end of April.
    —The Angels have an off-day on Thursday, however, and aren’t currently planning to skip their fifth starter to give Weaver the start on the 30th, denying him the opportunity to attempt this feat and instead placing his seventh start on May 1.
    —-In between Weaver’s fifth and sixth wins of the season, the Angels were swept in a four-game series at home against the Red Sox. The Angels start a four-game series at Fenway Park on May 2, after which they are not scheduled to face Boston for the rest of the season.
    —–Weaver’s scheduled start on May 1 against the Rays will be his second start against them this season. Like the Red Sox, the Rays have 8 games against the Angels this season. Apparently not all season series are created equally.
