Jason Marquis picked up his NL-leading 8th win today against the Cardinals. He pitched 6 2/3 innings and gave up 2 runs on 6 hits, 1 BB, and 4 Ks. He was also 1-3 at the plate with 1 run scored. The Cards aren't the only former team Marquis has beaten this year. The Braves and the Cubs also share that distinction. Against all 3 former teams, Marquis has given up just 4 runs in 21 2/3 innings. That comes out to a 1.66 ERA. Think he was geared up for these games?
Scott Feldman's remarkable run of 6 consecutive quality starts came to an end today against the Blue Jays, although he didn't pitch too badly. He went 6 innings and gave up 4 runs on 7 hits, 2 BBs, and 2 Ks. It was Feldman's first loss of the year.
Ian Kinsler was 1-4 with 1 BB against the Blue Jays.
Gabe Kapler was 1-4 with 1 HR, 2 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the Yankees. It was Kapler's 1st HR of the year.
Josh Whitesell was 2-3 with 1 BB and 1 RBI against the Padres.
John Grabow pitched 1 inning of scoreless relief against the Braves. His ERA is now 3.96.
Craig Breslow pitched 1/3 of an inning against the Twins.
