Ike Davis had two hits for the second straight day, driving in two and scoring on as the Mets won their seventh straight, 6-4, against the Indians. New York is 10 games over the .500 mark for the first time since 2008. They trail the Braves for first place in the NL East by a half game.
Ian Kinsler had two doubles in four at-bats, driving in half of the Rangers’ runs in a 6-4 win over the Marlins, to complete their three-game sweep. Scott Feldman did not appear in the game. He takes the mound tonight in an all-Texas battle against the Houston Astros.
And don’t put that broom away just yet: Kevin Youkilis was hitless in four at-bats but drove in a run as the Red Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Diamondbacks, 8-5.
Craig Breslow struck out the only batter he faced as a “loogy” (lefty one-out guy) and picked up second hold in three games (five on the season), but the A’s dropped a close on to the Cubs, 3-2. John Grabow did not appear for Chicago.
The Brewers didn’t play last night, so here’s an “Ultimate Guide to Ryan Braun“ to tide you over.
DL: Brad Ausmus (Dodgers), Gabe Kapler (Rays), Jason Marquis (Nationals)
