Hamels wins again: Berry debuts

I am still Internet inhibited, so here we go as quickly as I can:

In Cleveland, the Indians kept their hold on first place with a 4-2 win over the Tigers.  Quintin Berry made his major league debut and got his first major league hit, a bunt double, and scored a run for the Tigers.

In Philadelphia, Cole Hamels won his league leading 7th game with 8 shut out innings against the Nationals.  Cole (7-1, 2.17) allowed just 4 hits and 3 walk, striking out 8.  Carlos Ruiz (.357) had 3 hits for the Phillies, before being struck by a foul ball in the 8th inning on the right wrist.  X-rays are negative, and Chooch is day-to-day.  Freddy Galvis was 1 for 3 for the Phils.

Cole's victory was #24 for the HomeSide this year.

In Lakewood, Kelly Dugan recorded the BlueClaws' first 4-hit game of the year, and Harold Martinez added 2 hits, including the game winner in the bottom of the 11th to give the Claws a 3-2 win over Delmarva.  Mike Nesseth threw 4 shut out innings in relief, to notch his 4th win of the year.

In Fort Myers, Cody Asche, Jim Murphy and Drew Hillman drove in runs in the top of the 9th inning to take Clearwater to a 4-2 win over the Miracle.  Juan Sosa was the winning pitcher and Tyler Knigge recorded a save, his 2nd.

In Erie, Reading wasted a fine outing by David Buchanan, losing to the Sea Wolves, 4-2.  Buchanan went 7 strong and gave up just 1 earned run, and leaving with the game tied at 2.  Tyson Gillies had 3 hits for the Phillies, with Jiwan James and Leandro Castro adding 2 hits each.

In Round Rock, Michael Taylor hit his 3rd home run of the year for Sacramento as the River Cats beat the Express, 8-2..........In Huntsville, Darren Byrd recorded his 3rd save of the year, retiring the final 5 hitters for the Stars in their 4-2 win over Birmingham.
