Baseball Before Bedtime: Wasps Nest

Here's what happened in baseball yesterday while you had a wet martini in a paper cup.

Padres 3, Reds 1: Jake Peavy turned in one of his best starts of the season, a 4 hit complete game that included a stretch of 17 straight retired. The Padres completed the sweep, which should make the Reds feel really really terrible about themselves.

Yankees 3, Twins 2: Speaking of sweeps the Yankees, go for one tonight after using walkoffs to take the first three games of this series. Yesterday's was of the tater tot variety, specifically a solo 10th inning happy jack by Johnny Damon. A-Rod went yard again marking one of the only blemishes on Minnesota starter Kevin Slowey's day. AJ Burnett went six point two and only allowed two runs in spite of giving up 6 hits and 6 BBs.

Mariners 3, Red Sox: Good news and bad news for Boston. They've been terrible on the West Coast so far, but luckily don't have to go back. Yesterday's loss came after 3rd string SS Nick Green threw the would be final out 10 rows into the first base box seats. Beyond that it took only a seeing eye single to end the game. Walkoff flub. FSSJD Drew totted to continue his hot streak in the 3 slot. HE SHOULD STAY THERE ALL SEASON.

Brewers 8, Cards 2: Hey, Manny Parra pitched okay again! Whee! Our boy tossed 6 innings of 2 ER ball and Prince Fielder had a 3 run ding dong in the 7th inning. The back to back wins against St. Louis coupled has vaulted the Milwaukee Machas into first place in the division with a 1.5 game lead over the Cubs. That deserves a High Life.

Just because it's true doesn't mean you have to say it.
