Today it’s supposed to be in the mid-70’s and this weekend, when I’m going to Maryland Day
and the O’s game against the Rangers, is supposed to be in the mid-80’s!!!!
Time to break out the shorts
and the Tevas!!!
Brad Ausmus, C – Los Angeles Dodgers
Brad didn’t see any action in the Dodgers game against the Astros.
Jose Bautista, 3B – Toronto Blue Jays
Jose didn’t play in the Blue Jays game against the Rangers.
Ryan Braun, OF, 3B – Milwaukee Brewers
Ryan went 2-for-3, with a two-run homer (4), 2 RBIs (10, 11), 2 walks and 2 runs scored. He raised his average to .327 and extended his streak to 164 errorless games.
Craig Breslow, P – Minnesota Twins
Craig saw no action yesterday because the Twins had an off day.
Scott Feldman, P – Texas Rangers
Scott didn’t pitch in the Rangers game against the Blue Jays because he is preparing for his start Saturday in their game against my Orioles as the replacement for former Oriole Kris Benson who was placed on the 15-day DL with elbow tendinitis.
John Grabow, P, Pittsburgh Pirates
John saw no action yesterday because the Pirates had an off day.
Gabe Kapler, OF – Tampa Bay Rays
Gabe pinch ran for Pat Burrell in the ninth inning of the Rays game against the Mariners, but didn’t score.
Ian Kinsler, 2B – Texas Rangers
Ian went 0-for-4, with two strike-outs in the Rangers game against the Blue Jays. His batting average fell to .381. This is the second straight game in which he was hitless and also struck out twice! I bet we don’t see that happen again all year.
Jason Marquis, P – Colorado Rockies
Jason didn’t start yesterday because the Rockies had an off day.
Scott Schoeneweis, P – Arizona Diamondbacks
Scott didn’t pitch because the Diamondbacks had an off day.
Kevin Youkilis, 1B, 3B – Boston Red Sox
Youk didn’t see any action because the Red Sox had an off day. The Sawx host the Evil Empire this weekend.
Macher (Big Shot) of the Day – Ryan Braun
