The Toast Of Their Towns

Ryan Braun was 1-5 with 1 HR (his 27th), 2 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the Nationals. Braun's HR in the 6th inning put the Brewers on top for good. Braun ranks 2nd in the NL in total bases, 3rd in hits, and 4th in RBIs and runs scored.

Kevin Youkilis was 2-4 with 1 HBP, 1 RBI, and 1 run scored against the White Sox. Youk ranks 2nd in the AL in OBP and OPS. He's 4th in SLG.

Jason Marquis got his 3rd no-decision of the season, although he certainly pitched well enough to get the win against the Giants. He went 8 innings and gave up 1 run on 6 hits, 2 BBs, and 5 Ks. This was the 8th game of the year where he has gone 8 or more innings. Of his last 10 starts, 9 have been of the quality variety. Marquis lowered his WHIP to 1.27 and his ERA to 3.47.
