I am running out the door this morning, so as quickly as I can-
In Philadelphia, Ryan Howard (.230 and rising) had an RBI single and his 7th home run of the year in the Phillies wild 8-7 extra inning win over the Cardinals. Vance Worley allowed 4 runs on 9 hits and 2 walks over 5.1 innings of work, and got no decision.
In Toronto, Jay Happ got his first win for the Blue Jays and his 8th overall in Toronto's 10-7 win over New York. Happ was very good for 5 innings before tiring in the 6th. He allowed 4 runs (3 in the 6th) on 6 hits, NO walks, with 4 Ks. Anthony Gose walked and scored a run for the Jays.
The win was #48 for the HomeSide this year.
In Cleveland, the Red Sox poured it on the Indians, 14-1. Jason Donald and Lou Marson had a hit apiece for the Tribe, with Donald scoring the lone run for Cleveland.............In Chicago, the Cubs were shut out by the Reds, 4-0. Adrian Cardenas had a pinch hit single in the 6th inning for the Cubbies.............In New York, Michael Bourn (.291) had a double, stole his 30th base, and added a bases loaded walk in the Braves 9th inning rally, which came up 1 short in Atlanta's 6-5 loss to the Mets. Bourn leads the National League in hits, 3-hit games, and runs scored and is tied for the stolen base lead.
In New Britain, Darin Ruf hit his 25th home run of the year, and his 7th in the last 10 games for Reading, as the R-Phils salvaged the finale of their series with the Rock Cats, 8-3. D'Arby Myers (.290) had 2 more hits and scored a run for Reading. Trevor May picked up his 9th win with 6 innings of work (2 runs, 7 hits, 3 walks, 8 Ks), and Mike Cisco (1.21) notched his 2nd save for Reading and his 3rd overall.
In Clearwater, Chris Duffy had his first 2-hit game since his promotion, and Jesse Biddle recorded his 8th win with 6 solid innings and the Threshers beat Lakeland, 4-3. Tim Kennelly pitched a scoreless frame and Kenny Giles got his first Clearwater save.
In Nashville, Jesus Sanchez gave up a run on 1 hit and 1 walk in 2 inning of work, blowing a save for the Sounds. It was the second outing in a row Sanchez allowed an earned run, his AAA ERA rising to 1.15.
In Las Vegas, Tuffy Gosewisch (.360 since trade) was 1 for 4 with an RBI for the 51s in their 10-8 loss to Iowa in the first game of a doubleheader. Bobby Korecky (3.47) threw 2 shut out innings of relief (1 hit, 1 walk) for Vegas.
In Corpus Christi, Jonathan Singleton hit 2 home runs ( #16 & 17), and knocked in 4 runs (72) to help pace the Hooks to a 20-9 win over Springfield.
