Rosenberg, Taylor called up

Before Friday's games began, the Phillies traded Joe Blanton to the Dodgers for future considerations, and recalled BJ Rosenberg from Lehigh Valley.  Also, the Athletics recalled Michael Taylor from AAA-Sacramento.

In Philadelphia, it was Kyle Kendrick to step in for Blanton and pitch the first 4 innings against the Diamondbacks.  Kyle's 22 scoreless innings streak ended when he allowed a run in the second inning.  In all, he gave up 3 runs, 2 earned on 5 hits and was charged with the 4-2 loss. Rosenberg, who has been starting games for Lehigh Valley, came on and threw 2 perfect innings, striking out 3 of the 6 hitters he faced, consistently hitting 95 MPH on the gun.  Antonio Bastardo also threw a 1-2-3 inning.  Not much going on offensively, with Ryan Howard (just .191 so far) going 0 for 4, and Domonic Brown (2 for 11) picking up 1 hit.

In Detroit, Quintin Berry (.285) had a single and a double, scored 2 runs and drove in another (#24) as part of a 16 hit night for the Tigers in their 10-2 win over the Indians...............In Atlanta, Michael Bourn (.290) had a walk, stole his 29th base, and scored a run for the Braves, as Atlanta beat his former team, 4-1...............In Oakland, the Athletics posted their 13th walk off win of the year with a 15th inning run to take a 5-4 win over Toronto.  Anthony Gose was 0 for 6 for the Blue Jays, and Michael Taylor struck out in a pinch hitting appearance.
