Gose nets game winner!

Monday night in Toronto, Anthony Gose had the game wining hit, a walk off single in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Jays a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins.

In Washington, Kyle Kendrick won his final outing of the season with 7 shut out innings against the Nationals as the Phillies won, 2-0.  Kendrick (11-12, 3.96) allowed just 4 hits and 1 walk and Darin Ruf drove in both runs with a 2-run triple in the 2nd inning.  Ruf has 9 hits, and 7 RBI in just 27 at bats since his call up!  Justin De Fratus recorded his 5th hold with .2 innings of work, despite allowing a hit and a walk, and Domonic Brown picked up a single and a double, and scored a run for the Phillies.

In Pittsburgh, the Pirates edged the Braves, 2-1.  Michael Bourn (.276) had a hit and a walk and scored the lone run for Atlanta.  The Nationals clinch the NL East with the Braves loss, though both are going to the playoffs.  Another HomeSider headed for the post season is Quintin Berry, as the Tigers clinched their division behind a big game from probable MVP and possible triple crown winner Miguel Cabrera's 4-hit night in a 6-3 win over the Royals.

In St Louis, the Cardinals reduced their magic number to 1, with a 4-2 win over the Reds.  Alfredo Simon (2.66) pitched 2 inning for Cincinnati, allowing a run on 3 hits.  The Cardinals will look to wrap up the final playoff spot in the NL tonight with a win or a Dodgers' loss.

In a wild one in Phoenix, the Rockies took a 13-inning, 7-5 decision from the Diamondbacks.  Josh Outman picked up the win in relief, his first of the year, despite walking 2 hitters in just .2 innings. Outman becomes the 13th different HomeSider to post a major league win this year, and with Kendrick's win added to Outman's, the HomeSide now has picked up 70 wins this year!!  Mike Zagurski came on in the 13th inning with the bases loaded and allowed all 3 runners to score.  Mike (5.54)  has had a tough season for Arizona and is surely facing an uncertain off season.
