Yankees outfielder Melky Cabrera went 3-4, from the ninth hole, in the Yankees’ 5-4 win over the Blue Jays. This win brings Andy Pettite’s record to over .500; he also won consecutive games for just the first time this season. The Yankees have the best winning percentage in the Majors since the All Star break. (I prefer the Yankees of May.)
Tigers third-baseman Ryan Raburn hit the go-ahead single in a 4-run 7th, helping the Tigers snap a 5-game losing streak, with a 6-4 win against the hapless Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Ryan’s a hottie, so he gets the coveted Picture above The Blurb (and there’s side-tongue!).
Andrea’s Cardinals tied a major league record by getting 10 straight hits in a 10-run 5th inning, beating the San Diego Padres 10-5. Even the pitcher, Braden
Loser Looper (sorry, old habits die hard), got in on the fun, with 2 hits. That’s good enough to bat 5th in the St. Louis lineup.
This is Brad Hawpe. When he’s not off killing deer, he’s hitting homeruns for the Colorado Rockies (he already has 19 of them this year). Another Rockies hottie, Matt Holliday, hit one out, en route to a 6-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
