The Philadelphia Phillies have a 23-year-old right-hander named Vance Worley who stymied the Red Sox for a 2-1 victory on Wednesday night.
Worley pitched 7 strong innings, gave up 5 hits, 1 run, 2 walks and fired 5 Ks.
Red Sox starter John Lackey pitched a solid game and drove in Boston's only run with a two-out double.
The New York Mets have suddenly transformed into the '27 Yankees!
The Mets CRUSHED Detroit, again - last night, 16-9!!
In their last 4 games the Mets have scored a team-record 52 runs!!!
New York torched Tigers' pitching for 20 hits and spread them throughout the batting order - 16 runs scored without a single home run.
The Tigers got homers from Andy Dirks, Jhonny Peralta, Ryan Raburn - and 2 dingers from Miguel Cabrera.
The Tigers ONLY hope is Justin Verlander. JV takes the mound this afternoon at 1:05 PM.
He will try to become the first 11-game winner in the majors and help the Tigers avoid a sweep at the hands of the Mets.
Verlander is on FIRE! He's won 6 consecutive starts with a 0.72 ERA. At The Copa he has allowed only one run in 32 2-3 innings. The Tigers' ace is 8-0 with a 1.77 ERA in 11 starts following a loss April 27.
The kiss must've worked - he went YARD twice! Maybe Leyland should make this mandatory for all batters...
WHAT KIND OF CHICANERY IS THIS???...NO ONE WITH TESTOSTERONE FLOWING THROUGH THEIR SYSTEM CAN STARE DIRECTLY INTO KATE UPTON'S EYES WITHOUT GLANCING DOWN AT HER MAGNIFICENT RACKAGE!! I CALL FOUL, SIR!!!
