Baseball Before Bedtime: A Well Respected Man

Here's what happened in baseball while doing the best things so conservatively:

Braves 7, Diamondbacks 3: What's gotten into Brandon Webb? Or more accurately, what got into the Braves offense, who collected 10 hits off the Arizona ace and knocked him out of the game after just four and a third innings, his shortest outing in over two years? Or even more importantly, who put the rainbow sprinkles on my vanilla ice cream? I WANTED M&M'S! Back to the action: Mark Teixeira, in his latest audition to move to New York City, had four RBI and two hits, including a double that drove in the first runs Brandon Webb has given up in the first inning all year. (NOT REALLY...THIS STAT IS UNTRUE).

Blue Jays 7, Royals 2: The city of Toronto welcomed the Royals to town by NOT celebrating Memorial Day and the Blue Jays added to their misery by NOT letting Kansas City win any of the four games. That's a sweep no matter how you count it. Actually, the Royals have lost TWO four-game series in a row. Two times four is eight, even in Ontario. The hapless Royals managed but four runs in the four games and allowed 23. The pitching hero of Monday was Shaun Marcum who actually won for the first time since Caesar crossed the Rubicon. (NOT REALLY...THIS STAT IS UNTRUE)

Brewers 4, Nationals 3 (11): Prince Fielder almost hit four home runs but instead settled for zero. What gives, Ned Yost?

"Prince just missed four homers. He almost had a four-homer day," Brewers manager Ned Yost said. "You add up his outs, and ... it could have been 1,500 feet."
How in blog's name are you still employed, Yostypants? Whatever, because Prince scored the winning run on Gabe Kapler's pinch hit single in the top of the 11th. Walkoff Walk favorite Salomon Torres picked up his second save of the four-game series. Hey, the Brewers didn't lose a series! Whee!

Atlanta is now 3-0 against Santana and Webb. I have no jokes, just wanted to point that out.

matt_T, the Indians always owned Santana as well. Maybe he's afraid of being scalped.
