In a spot start for the Rangers today, Feldman earned his keep. He went 5 innings, gave up 1 run on 4 hits and 1 BB, and struck out 2. Feldman got the win and also some run support from teammate Ian Kinsler. Kinsler has been teeing off on Baltimore this season, and today was no exception; he went yard twice. That gives him 7 HRs on the year. It also gives him 20 RBIs - from the leadoff spot.
Ryan Braun continued his hot hitting with a 4-6 performance tonight against the Astros. Braun's last hit of the game was a big one. In the top of the 11th, Braun singled up the middle and plated Corey Hart for what turned out to be the winning run. Hard not to see the parallel with what Youkilis and Ausmus did yesterday. Pretty cool.
Youkilis had another great game, going 2-3 with 1 double, 1 BB, and 4 runs scored. His average? A pedestrian .444.
Scott Schoeneweis tossed an inning of scoreless relief. The lefty's ERA is now 2.70.
Gabe Kapler got another hit tonight. Surprise, surprise. It was a double.
