Pretty quite day considering there are only two weeks left to the season.
Ryan Braun was hitless in four times at bat in the Brewers’ 5-2 loss to the Cubs. He still leads in the NL batting race with a .333 average. He did not earn NL Player of the Week honors for his four home runs, .455 batting average, 1.000 slugging percentage, or any other lofty accomplishment.
Danny Valencia was 1-3 with a walk as the designated hitter in the Twins’ 6-4 loss to the Yankees. Reliever Mariano Rivera established a new record with his 602nd save.
Ryan Lavarnway struck out as a pinch hitter in the first game 6-5 Red Sox loss to the Orioles. he did not appear in the nightcap.
