Batting 5th, Ian Kinsler was 2-5 with 1 double (his 31st), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, and 1 SB (his 31st) against the Angels. Kinsler's 31 stolen bases this year rank 2nd all-time behind Shawn Green's 35 in 1998.
Ryan Braun was 1-4 with 1 HR (his 31st), 1 RBI, and 1 run scored against the Rockies.
The Rockies' win over the Brewers guarantees a Wild Card berth for them and keeps them in the hunt for the division race against the Dodgers. They're 2 games behind the Dodgers and will play the last 3 games of the season against them. Should be a good series. Jason Marquis will toe the slab on Sunday looking for his 16th win. This marks his 10th straight postseason. If nothing else, Marquis appears to be a good luck charm.
Kevin Youkilis was 1-3 with 1 RBI and 1 run scored against the Indians.
Gabe Kapler was 0-3 against the Orioles.
Craig Breslow pitched 1 inning of scoreless relief against the Mariners. His WHIP is 1.10. His ERA is 3.34. Bet the Twins are kicking themselves now for letting this guy go. William has been saying this all along. Not like they're in a playoff race or anything...
