Only 7 games on the schedule on Tuesday, but still some solid performances...
Barry Zito went 6 strong innings, striking out 5 and only allowing 4 baserunners. Clearly a different start than he had last season, and hopefully a sign of things to come for Barry.
Brian Wilson also recorded his 2nd save of the season.
Let the closer concerns start now. Mike Gonzalez was unable to close out the victory for the Orioles yesterday, giving up 2 ER and 4 baserunners in only a 1/3 of an inning as the Rays won in a walkoff.
C Matt Wieters, 3B Evan Longoria, and OF Adam Jones all homered in this game as well.
Mariano Rivera recorded his 1st save of the season, and Robinson Cano hit his first homer of the season and drove in 2 runs in the victory.
Victor Martinez hit his 1st homer in the defeat, and Jacoby Ellsbury also stole his 1st of what will be many bases this season.
Casey McGehee hit a 3 run homer, and Rickie Weeks added a solo shot and a stolen base to help lead the Brewers to victory.
Prince Fielder went 2-2 with 3 runs scored, and Rockies' 3B Ian Stewart went 3-4 with a triple and a homerun in the defeat.
Adrian Gonzalez hit his 2nd homerun of the season last night, and Chris Young allowed only 4 baserunners in 6 innings, striking out 5 to notch the victory. Heath Bell also recorded his 1st save of the season.
Everth Cabrera also went 3-4 and drove in 4 runs, and stole a base as well for the victorious Padres.
Dallas Braden had what could well have been the game of his career to this point, striking out 10 and allowing only 1 run and 5 baserunners over 7 innings. Kurt Suzuki homered in the 4th inning, and Mark Ellis drove in the winning run in the 10th inning.
The Twins were led by the M&M boys, as both Mauer (2-run) and Morneau (solo) homered in the victory. Torii Hunter provided the offense for the Angels, homering and driving in all 3 Angels runs. Jon Rauch recorded his first save of the season as well.
