Daily Minyan – June 25, 2009

On this date in 1988 – The Orioles’ Cal Ripken, Jr. plays in

his 1,000th consecutive game, a 10-3 loss to Boston.

Ripken’s streak was the sixth-longest in major-league history

at that time.

I’m not sure that any of these guys have played in 1,000 total

games, but they are my guys, so let’s see how they did on

Wednesday, June 24.  


Brad Ausmus, C – Los Angeles Dodgers

Brad didn’t play in the Dodgers loss to the ChiSox


Ryan Braun, OF, 3B – Milwaukee Brewers

Ryan went 2-for-4 in the Brewers win over the Twins

and raised his average to .319.


Craig Breslow, P – Oakland A’s

Craig didn’t pitch in the the A’s loss to Giants.


Scott Feldman, P – Texas Rangers

Scott didn’t pitch in the Rangers win over to the D-Backs                 


John Grabow, P, Pittsburgh Pirates

John pitched a scoreless 8th inning, striking out two batters,

in the Pirates win over the Indians. He lowered his ERA to



Gabe Kapler, OF – Tampa Bay Rays

Gabe didn’t play in the Rays victory against the Phillies in a

World Series rematch.


Ian Kinsler, 2B – Texas Rangers

Ian went 1-for-4, stole his 15th base and scored

one of the Rangers’s two runs in their victory over

the D-Backs. He lowered his average to .266. 


Ian has earned something to nosh on!



Jason Marquis, P – Colorado Rockies

Jason (9-5) had an awful start against the Angels throwing 88

pitches over 3 1/3 innings in the second-shortest of his 15

starts this season. Jason, who was trying to tie for the major

league lead in wins, retired only nine of the 21 batters he

faced and allowed eight runs, nine hits, including a homer to

Vlad Guerrero, and two walks on the way to raising his ERA

to 4.22.  For good measure he even was called for a balk!



“I couldn’t command my pitches, couldn’t make the

adjustment. I put my team behind the 8-ball,” Jason stated



Aaron Poreda, P – Chicago White Sox

Aaron didn’t pitch in the ChiSox win over the Dodgers.


Scott Schoeneweis, P – Arizona Diamondbacks

Scott didn’t pitch in the D-Backs one run loss to the



Kevin Youkilis, 1B, 3B – Boston Red Sox

the BoSox win over the Nats.  He lowered his

average to .313.
