Wil Myers inside-the-park home run.
- At Yankee Stadium too, where it’s not exactly hard to hit it out.
– All of Myers’ home runs this year are against the Yankees.

George Kottaras hit two home runs in his first two at-bats this year.
- That would be second on the Royals, who waived him. (h/t @jazayerli)

The Diamondbacks, at 11-23, are 8-8 on the road.

R.A. Dickey, pinch-runner.

Only four AL teams have a positive run differential.
- One of them is the Twins.
– None are AL East teams.
— Last-place Toronto has the best run differential in the AL East.

Koji Uehara walked someone.
- He’s walked someone in back-to-back outings.
– He hasn’t walked people in back-to-back outings since 2011.

Lance Lynn walked Jason Hammel.
- Matt Adams triple.

The Mariners took two of three against the Astros. On its own, this is of course not unpredictable. But the game they lost was the one Felix Hernandez started, and they gave up eight and seven runs (again, to the Astros) in the wins.

    Alex Avila hit his second home run in three days today. He now has two homers this season; the same amount as Miguel Cabrera.

  2. A DC Wonk says:

    The Giants were 0-for-7 with RISP during their three games with Atlanta
    – They won all three

  3. Meisen says:

    In the late game Saturday, Mets loss to the Rockies, LaTroy Hawkins won, Kyle Farnsworth lost.
    Those 2 pitchers are respectively the active leaders for games pitched in the MLB.

    How about “Jean Machi stole a base in the 13th inning”???
