Phillies 8, Marlins 6: Jeez, Joe Blanton chugged out yet another unimpressive start (5 IP, 4 ER, 97 pitches) and still picked up his second win against zero losses with the Phils. What a stinker! I suppose it helps when Joe's offense backs him with eight hits, three of the extry-base varietal. Anibal Sanchez couldn't finish the second inning despite allowing five runs on five hits.
Red Sox 3, Rays 0: By the time Jason Bay hit a solo ding-dong in the bottom of the first, everyone in Fenway's record 456th consecutive sellout crowd could go home because the game's scoring was D-U-N done. Still, they hung around to see Jon Lester hurl 7 and 2/3 solid innings. He got in trouble in the eighth but Jon Papelbon came in to strike out Rocco Baldelli, Rocco's fourth K on the night. Golden Sombrero, indeed.
Orioles 14, Indians 3: The O's hit four homers including a king dong by slugger Aubrey Huff. A seven-run sixth and a five-run eighth is no way to go through life, Indians pitching staff.
Tigers 14, Athletics 8: What an ugly game. Screw it, I'm going to bed.
