Baseball Before Bedtime: Saint Dominic's Preview

| | Comments (2)

Here's what happened in baseball as we got wet with the jet set:

Marlins 3, Phillies 2 (11): Sassy senior Jorge Cantu did do the Marlins a great service when he came to bat with none out and the bases juiced. He singled, giving Florida their ninth walkoff win and a series victory of the division-leading Phillies, and giving Scott Olsen a good reason to put Cantu in a headlock. Celebrate, young Marlins, because the schedule doesn't get any easier.

Royals 8, White Sox 7: Oh Chicago White Sox, your retro 1980s unis didn't serve you well this weekend. You just lost two of three to the hapless Royals! Esteban German's two-run dubble in the eighth, his third hit of the day, was the attention getter, but new third-slot hitter David DeJesus cannot be overlooked with his two hits and three RBI. Joakim Soria, code name The Mexicutioner, notched his 26th save. Bueno!

Dodgers 6, Diamondbacks 5: Oh my stars and garters there is a first-place tie in the NL West and both teams are two games under .500. LA toppled 'Zona in two of three weekend affairs, thanks to a wild five-run ninth off D-Back closer Brandon Lyon. That's a BLOWN SAVE, sir...his fifth on the year and third in his last seven opportunities. Something tells me the Lyon doesn't sleep tonight. See what I did there? Hire me, New York Post headline writing division! Anyway, Matt Kemp's double and Andre Ethier's triple were the big run-scoring plays for the Dodger dogs; Dodgers reliever Jonathan Broxton tallied his second save since closer Takashi Saito done got creampuffed.

I saw what might well be my last game at Yankee Stadium yesterday. Pettite throws a gem, Giambi homers, Mariano gets the save and Abreu drops an easy fly to almost cost them the game. least the Red Sox don't play the Angels again tonight.
