Daily Roundup, 07/29/11

- The matchup in Giants/Reds tonight was basically sweet, sweet YCPB candy: Ryan Vogelsong vs. Dontrelle Willis.
– After a first inning that took over thirty pitches, where he gave up two runs, he ended up giving the Giants a quality start.
— From the beginning to the end, this was weird. It started with an Aaron Rowand leadoff double.
—- And it ended because Brian Wilson gave up hits to Jose Arredondo – who is a relief pitcher – and a walk-off hit to Edgar Renteria.

- Chien-Ming Wang also pitched in the majors, for the first time in over two years.
– The first inning went as such: walk, wild pitch, single, single (Reyes scores), single (no one scores), single (Turner scores), run-scoring groundout, Lucas Duda flies out and the runner on third scores, but another runner is out trying to go to third.
— Jason Isringhausen also pitched in this game.

- Both Emilio Bonifacio and Dustin Pedroia’s hitting streaks (each over 25 games) ended tonight.
– The Red Sox and White Sox held each other to three hits each.
— With a win tonight, the White Sox are finally .500, and only two games back.

- Brett Cecil beat the Rangers again, for the second time in less than a week.

- Eight days ago, Billy Butler had six home runs. Now he has twelve.
– He also has five homers in the past four games.
— Kansas City beat Cleveland 12-0 today. Yeah you’re not misreading that. Guess it was payback for the great Vin Mazarro relief appearance of doom game.
