Baseball Before Bedtime: Transmission

Here's what happened in baseball as we danced, danced, danced, danced, danced to the radio:

Braves 4, Marlins 0: Atlanta pitcher Jorge Campillo brought the junk and the Marlins weren't biting. Jorge and two of his bullpen compatriots held Florida to two hits and zero runs in a tidy 2 hour and 24 minute affair in Miamah. The Marlins may lead the NL in tater tots but couldn't find their swings tonight against ol' slowpoke Campillo. Mark Teixeira had an RBI double and was traded after the game to the Yakult Swallows. THIS IS UNTRUE

Padres 6, Reds 4: Francisco Cordero picked a bad time to blow his sixth save. Actually, that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever said. There are no good times to blow a save. Unless the two teams involved are completely out of the playoff picture, I suppose. Anywho, up 4-3 in the ninth, FranCord gave up a leadoff walk to Scott Hairston and a single to Edgar Gonzalez before retiring Brian Giles on a groundball that...oops...let in the tying run. Kevin Kouzmanoff broke the tie with a two-run dubble and the rest was history, aka Trevor Hoffman's 542nd career save despite loading the bases with zero outs. KEEP 'EM ON THE EDGE OF THEIR SEATS

Rays 4, Athletics 0: Tampa Bay pitcher Scott Kazmir brought the heat and the Athletics were swinging. Scott and two of his bullpen compatriots held Oakland to two hits and zero runs in a tidy 2 hour and 49 minute affair in St. Pete. The Athletics may be last in the AL in slugging percentage but that shouldn't lessen the praise for ol' fastballs Kazmir. Willy Aybar had a solo ding-dong and was traded after the game to the Daikyo Dolphins. THIS IS UNTRUE

Jorge Campillo brought the junk and the Marlins weren't biting.

Thank god. Junk biting hurts.

Yakult is a very popular girl.

These recaps are not amusing.
THIS IS UNTRUE.

True or not, Willy Aybar had better look out for horny wallabies.
