Gabe Kapler, OF – Tampa Bay Rays
Gabe didn’t play in yesterday’s win over the BoSox.
Ian Kinsler, 2B – Texas Rangers
Ian went 2-for-4, including his 9th homer of the year, which once again was a leadoff shot. He drove in two and scored two in the Rangers win over the White Sox. He’s now batting .337.
Kinsler’s second leadoff homer in three games was the eighth of his career which tied the team record already shared by Michael Young, Mike Hargrove and Oddibe McDowell.
“Cool,” Kinsler responded when told of the record. “It’s a really good feeling to be leading 1-0 after one at-bat. It’s just something that kind of happens. It’s not like I’m going out there trying to hit a home run my first at bat.”
Jason Marquis, P – Colorado Rockies
Jason, who pitched a complete game victory the day before celebrated his nice performance by chilling out on the bench!
Scott Schoeneweis, P – Arizona Diamondbacks
Scott didn’t pitch in the Diamondbacks loss to the Brewers.
Kevin Youkilis, 1B, 3B – Boston Red Sox
Youk went 2-for-4, and slammed a 2-run homer (#6) in Boston’s loss to the Rays. Youk has hit four homers and has knocked in 15 RBIs in his last 14 games. He raised his MLB leading average to .407 average.
