What a great night for baseball!
Justin Verlander pitched 8 innings, gave up 7 hits, 4 runs, 1 walk and
fired 7 Ks.
The Tigers beat the White Sox 5-4.
If you're facing the Boston Red Sox, you'd better bring a BIG bullpen.
Monday night's Red Sox - Royals' game didn't end until the 14th inning at 1:59 AM.
The Royals employed 6 pitchers in Monday night's extra-inning game.
They used five more on Tuesday. KC had to use outfielder Mitch Maier to pitch the final inning!
Boston had 16 hits. Big Papi went 4-for-5 with 5 RBIs. The Red Sox beat the Royals 13-9.
Mitch Maier doesn't exactly look like Koufax out there...
Brandon McCarthy pitched a great game last night.
The Oakland A's right-hander pitched 8 innings, gave up 6 hits, 1 run, 2 walks and notched 3 Ks.
A's shortstop Cliff Pennington went 3-for-3 with an RBI double. Penny is batting a major-league-leading .500 since the All-Star break!
Oakland beat Tampa Bay 6-1
I went to see the new CAPTAIN AMERICA flick last night...AWESOME!!
Loved it - and the chick who played Steve Rogers love interest, Peggy Carter - English actress Hayley Atwell - was smokin' HOT...
