High Fives All Around

Ryan Braun was 2-4 with 1 HR (his 28th), 1 RBI, and 2 runs scored against the Pirates. Braun has scored 93 runs this year. That surpasses the 92 runs he scored last year, which was a career-high.

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 1-3 with 1 BB and 2 SBs (his 25th and 26th) against the Twins. As a result of the 2 HRs he hit yesterday and the 2 bags he swiped today, Kinsler only needs 2 more HRs and 4 more SBs to get that coveted 30/30 season.

Kevin Youkilis was 1-4 with 1 run scored against the Blue Jays.

Gabe Kapler was 1-1 with 1 HR (his 6th), 1 RBI, and 1 run scored against the Tigers. Kapler has now homered in 2 consecutive games.

Sam Fuld was 0-4 against the Mets.

Craig Breslow pitched 2/3 of an inning against the Angels on 2 hits and 2 Ks. However, Breslow got the short end of the stick on a call, which led to a big inning by the Angels. Bobby Abreu was called safe at 1st when he was clearly tagged out by Breslow before he reached the base.

Wonder if Kinsler will get any ink if he gets to 30/30? He is the most un-talked about star in baseball.
