    Nats pick up win from Astros

    Olsen goes 7 strong to earn the win

    Houston 2 9 0
    Washington 6 14 0

    Scott Olsen and the Nationals hosted the Houston Astros. Nationals got off to a hot start as Cristian Guzman and Willy Taveras both lined singles and Ryan Zimmerman drove in Guzman. Dunn would strike out and then Willingham would single scoring Taveras and Rodriguez would single scoring Zimmerman for a 3-0 lead. The Stros would get a run in the 2nd but the Nats scored again to keep the lead at 3, 4-1. Dunn in the bottom of the 7th would get a 2-0 count and hacked at the next pitch sending the ball 408 feet. Willingham would double to center and then Rodriguez would score him. Astros would produce a run in the top of the 8th as Carlos Lee would hit an RBI single scoring Bourn.

    Washington will host Milwaukee next week as the Astros will visit another NL East Team, the Braves.

    SP John Danks earned player of the game by allowing 1 ER, 7 H, 0 BB in 7 innings, along with 9 K. A 4-run 4th inning, which included 2-run HRs by Paul Konerko and Alexei Ramirez, allowed Danks and the Sox pen all the run support they would need. Carlos Quentin would add a solo shot later in the contest.

    With the White Sox offensive woes piling up this season, the RBI double by the Tigers' Gerald Laird in the second inning could have meant doom for the good guys. SP Jake Peavy would settle down after that hit, allowing only a solo shot by Austin Jackson through the remainder of his 7 innings.

    The bottom of the 3rd was quite kind to the men in pale hose. Mark Teahen reached on an error by 2B Scott Sizemore to lead off the frame. Alexei Ramirez followed that with a hit by pitch. Mark Kotsay reached on a bunt, but Juan Pierre struck out swinging. Gordon Beckham was able to salvage the chance to tie the game on a sacrifice fly to the noodle-armed Johnny Damon. Next up was Carlos Quentin. A mistake changeup down the middle was blasted 442 feet for a 4-1 lead.

    In the 9th, the Sox had a 5-2 lead and brought in Bobby Jenks. With two outs and Laird on first base, Scott Sizemore blasted a ball to left-center. CF Alex Rios picked up the ball and threw Sizemore out at 3rd base to end the game.

    Another exciting affair for the no-hit White Sox, who move their record to 4-1.

    W - Jake Peavy
    L - Justin Verlander
    S - Bobby Jenks​

    What he means is....


    Yankees win 8-4 over Baltimore on an ARod Grand Slam in the bottom of the 14th!

    That's what happens when you hit him 3 times...

    Karma's a Bitch!

    Angels use longball to beat Rays

    [​IMG]

    Angels offense pounded out 19 hits and scored 8 runs to get past a good Rays team. Juan Rivera had 2 HR, Kendry Morales and Tori Hunter also had HR. Ervin Santana had a great performance, scattering 6 hits over 7 innings and striking out 5. His only mistake was a hanging curveball to Jason Bartlett

    B.Butler:3-5,HR,3 RBI,3 R

    The Royals jumped out to an early 7-0 lead off starting pitcher Rickey Romero. Billy Butler hit a 3 run jack in the first inning and then the Royals added four more in the second. The Blue Jays just would not go away scoring two off of 2009 Cy Young award winner Zack Greinke in the second, 2 in the 3rd and then 5 in the 5th. When Greinke left the game the score was Royals 11 Jays 9. It then became a battle of the bullpens. Both pens did an excellent job keeping opposing hitters off balance and both teams just kept recording outs. In the end a 5th inning home run by Scott Podsednik proved to be the difference in the ball game. Next the Royals will take on division rival Chicago in their first battle inside the AL Central. ​

    INDIANS 3 @ TWINS 4 ​


    Twins take game 1 of series against Indians


    The Minnesota Twins move to 4-0 on the year as they defeat the Cleveland Indians 4-3. The Tribe put a scare on the Twins in the 9th as we put our closer Jon Rauch in. He almost cost us the ball game but calmed himself and delivered another save for the good guys. Mauer & Cuddyer went deep but there was little power elsewhere. Justin Morneau had two brilliant hits that happened to be RBI's. The Twins will now travel to Cleveland to face a pissed off bunch.

    Nelson Cruz powered the Rangers over the Red Sox with 3 homeruns and driving in 5 of the 7 Texas runs.

    The Rangers got to knuckleballer Wakefield and were able to hang 5 runs on him. Chris Davis also hit a long ball to go along with Cruz's 3 to give the Rangers 4 on the day. The bats were hot, and gave Feldman a 1-0 lead after the first and he went to work from there. Feldman went 7 innings with 5 K's allowing 2 runs, one of those a solo shot to JD Drew in the 7th.
