Here's what happened in baseball yesterday while you were wondering who was watching you -- the IRS?
Braves 6, Mets 2. Johan Santana went 6 1/3 innings, surrendering only two unearned runs, but a Jose Reyes error in the 7th led to four runs and the man with the 0.78 ERA got tagged with his second loss of the year.
Indians 9, White Sox 4. The Indians scored in the first inning for the first time this month to help Carl Pavano easily win his third straight start. Send a card to Gavin Floyd, will ya? The ex-Phillies prospect gave up 8 runs in five innings and raised his era to 7.32
Reds 13, Diamondbacks 5. The Reds pounded out a season high in hits (18) to open up a West Coast trip with a win. The D-Backs hit three homers in the loss, which is always nice for the fans at least. At least they saw some dingers!
Giants 11, Nationals 7. Ryan Zimmerman singled in his first at bat, extending his hitting streak to 29. One more and we've got an official break-into-SportsCenter for live updates hitting streak! He followed up his single with a pair of homers to boot; the Nats lost while hitting four homers for the second straight day. Speaking of milestones, Randy Johnson notched his 298th win.
