The Mariners tried to tap into some of the late-inning magic they have been showing in recent games, but Craig Kimbrel slammed the door in a 2-1 win after putting on two runners with no outs in the ninth.
Kimbrel walked Mitch Haniger, who hit a walk-off homer Wednesday, and Nelson Cruz to add some drama to a game full of it in a pitchers’ duel between David Price Tashaun Gipson Womens Jersey and Felix Hernandez, but one of the game’s best closers struck out Kyle Seager and got Ryon Healy to ground into a double play ending the threat and Seattle’s four-game win streak.
Athletics infielder Jed Lowrie went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts in Oakland’s 7-3 loss to the Astros. Lowrie went 1 for 12 in the three straight losses to Houston.
Rays reliever Vidal Nuno not only dove to stop Tyler Austin’s ground ball, but after picking it up, he bobbled it, and still threw out Austin. It could be why Austin was demoted after the game.
Cubs (38-27) at Cardinals (36-30) 8:15 p.m. ET Max Scherzer will likely start the All-Star game for the National League, but two other candidates for the honor are pitching in a matchup between the Cubs and the Cardinals Friday. Jon Lester (7-2, 2.22 ERA) takes the bump for Chicago, while Michael Wacha (8-1, 2.47) takes the mound for St. Louis.
In the early evening hours on the first day of September, at a ballpark nestled into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a minor-league baseball legend made history.
LaLoosh started listening to Davis and everything started falling into place, and Durham started winning. Davis kept hitting home runs, from both sides of the plate, and he even called his shots from time to time. LaLoosh stepped into his talent, and the http://www.shopjaguarsnfljerseys.com/Tashaun-Gipson-Jersey team did, too. The Bulls swept four games in Kingston, http://www.officialscoloradoavalanche.com/Adidas-Sergei-Boikov-Jersey took two more at Winston-Salem and Sergei Boikov Jersey kicked the ever-lovin’ snot out of Greensboro. By the time they swept both ends of a double-header on the Fourth of July, they’d crawled into a first-place tie in the Carolina League.
