Ike Davis had another good game, joining with David Wright to break the NY Mets’ six-game losing streak as they beat the host Washington Nationals, 9-5. They were leading 9-1, and when the bullpen started giving up runs, I must admit to getting a bit pessimistic. Davis had a solo home run in the second inning and drove in another run with a single in the fourth. It was his 14th four-bagger of the year.
Kevin Youkilis did not appear in the Chicago White Sox’s 3-1 loss to the host Boston Red Sox. Chicago dropped three of the four games.
Craig Breslow did not appear in the Ariz. Diamondbacks’ 7-6 loss to the host Cincinnati Reds.
Jason Marquis did not appears in the San Diego Padres’ 1-0 win over the visiting Houston Astros. He is slated to start tonight’s game against the visiting Colorado Rockies.
Day/night off for Ian Kinsler and Scott Feldman (Texas Rangers), Michael Schwimer (Philadelphia Phillies), and Ryan Braun (Milwaukee Brewers).
