Daily Roundup, 04/19/12

Curtis Granderson hit three home runs tonight.
- In the first four innings.
– He ended up going 5-for-5 with three home runs. No Yankee in history has had three home runs on the same night that they had five hits.
— This was a 4-game series that the Twins and Yankees split. It’s the first time the Twins have won two games in a series at Yankee Stadium since 2001.
—- Phil Hughes gave up six runs and got a win.

Ryan Braun went 0-for-11 in a series, with five strikeouts.
- The Brewers won that series.
– Against the red-hot Dodgers, to boot.
— At a certain point in today’s game, Matt Treanor hit a leadoff triple for the Dodgers.
—- And was stranded.

Speaking of the Dodgers, we know Matt Kemp is hot, but his slugging is .960.
- That’s higher than the OPS of every single National League team.
– He also has more home runs than several teams, including the Phillies, Braves, Rockies, Royals, and Giants.

The Cardinals have four losses…
- and Adam Wainwright has three of them.

the Astros hit three triples in one inning
- against the Nationals, who have been extremely good pitching-wise.
– They ended up blowing out the Nationals, 11-4.

Tonight’s the night Erick Aybar is getting honored as the Gold Glove winner for last year. He has two errors, and the Angels are only just beginning the fifth inning.
- CJ Wilson has given up four runs so far – to the As.
– The As ended up winning 4-2. They had three hits. The Angels had 10.

    Hey, I happened on to your blog through Twitter, and I just wanted to say that this is the blog of my dreams. Nothing but random baseball stats and strange occurrences? Seriously, this is awesome. That bit about Kemp’s slugging percentage is just fantastic. Please keep up the cool work.

    Kemp is having a fantastic year, but he doesn’t have more home runs than the Braves. Kemp has hit 7 home runs, and the Braves have hit 15.
