Good Stuff All Around

Batting 5th, Ike Davis was 2-4 with 2 HRs (his 12th and 13th), 3 RBIs, and 2 runs scored against the Giants. This was Ike's 2nd multi-HR game of the year.

Kevin Youkilis was 2-4 with 1 double (his 22nd) and 2 RBIs against the Rangers. Youk's RBI-double off Cliff Lee in the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs tied the game at 2 apiece. Then, in the 11th inning Youk hit a sacrifice fly to center to win the game for the Red Sox.

Ian Kinsler was 2-5 with 1 run scored and 1 SB (his 9th) against the Red Sox. Kinsler's SB was the 100th of his career. He joins Buddy Myer, Shawn Green, and Brad Ausmus as the only JMLs with 100 or more SBs.

Danny Valencia was 1-3 with 1 double (his 3rd) and 1 RBI against the White Sox. Valencia's RBI-double in the 2nd inning turned out to be the game-winner for the Twins.

Ryan Braun was 0-3 with 1 BB against the Braves.

Craig Breslow picked up his 4th win of the season. He pitched 1 scoreless inning on 1 hit and 1 BB against the Royals.

Big mistake not intentionally walking Youkilis in the ninth with first base open. Forget that crap about putting the winning run on base, you can't let the Red Sox best hitter beat you. Foolish mistake by the Rangers' manager.
