A busy night on the first of June, with 3 HomeSiders taking the hill in the majors. First, on a rainy night in Philadelphia, Kyle Kendrick survived a 48-minute rain delay in the top of the 5th inning to come back against the Marlins and pick up the victory in the Phillies 6-4 win. Kendrick went the 5.1 innings (with the delay in between) and allowed 2 runs on 8 hits and 3 walks, dancing out of trouble all night long to pick up his 2nd straight win. Carlos Ruiz (.381) had 3 more hits, including a double, and seems to like the clean up spot!! Freddy Galvis added a double and a run scored, while the Marlins got to Antonio Bastardo for 2 runs on back to back home runs in the 8th. Jacob Diekman gave up 2 hits and struck out 1 in his stint, before yeilding to Papaelbon.
That was win #29 this year for HomeSiders.
In Houston, Jay Happ pitched well enough to win again, but suffered from lack of offense from the Astros. Happ allowed 3 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks, and was charged with the loss in Cincinnati's 4-1 win......In Denver, the Rockies are stretching out Josh Outman so he can start again, and he went the first 3.1 innings against the Dodgers. On a strict pitch count, Outman threw 55 pitches, and allowed just 2 hits and 1 walk, striking out 5 of the 10 outs which he recorded in the Rockies' 14-4 win.
In Detroit, Quintin Berry had 3 more hits, including a triple and a double off CC Sabathia and scored 2 runs for the Tigers, but the Yankees prevailed, 9-4. "Q" has now hit in 9 of his first 10 games, and Friday was his 3rd 3-hit game, raising his average up to .364..........In Cleveland, Lou Marson had a hit and a walk and scored a run for the Indians in their 7-1 triumph over Minnesota......In San Francisco, The Giants edged the Cubs, 4-3. Adrian Cardenas made a pich hit appearance and struck out for Chicago.
