So there was a baseball game in Texas today.
–The final score was 21-7.
—It wasn’t the Rangers who won.
—–In fact, the Mariners had a 16-0 lead after the third inning.
——Jesus Montero was a triple away from the cycle after the third inning.
——–Via @ESPNStatsinfo, it’s the most runs the Mariners have scored since scoring 21 vs the Angels in 2000.
————Aaaand, of course, Iwakuma got the save for the Mariners.
Miguel Cairo, pinch runner.
Omar Vizquel stole a base.
–From the “Bizzarro YCPB” files, the Orioles were swept by the Blue Jays.
—Edwin Encarnacion has 17 home runs on the season. That’s the same as last season’s total.
Jack Wilson had an RBI double.
The Twins swept the Athletics.
–This includes a win with Francisco Liriano as their starter.
Cliff Lee is still winless.
Darwin Barney hit a walkoff home run.
–The Cubs and Padres actually combined for 40 runs over their three game series…
–…of which the Cubs won all three, after having a 12-game losing streak.
In sad news, Jamie Moyer was designated for assignment by the Rockies. We would like to take this moment to tip our cap to the oldest pitcher ever to win a Major League game, and it’s our firm belief he will be pitching in an MLB ballpark sooner rather than later!
