Batting 5th, Ike Davis was 1-4 with 1 double (his 30th) against the Pirates. If Ike hits 2 more HRs before season's end, he'll become the 1st JML to hit 20 HRs and 30 doubles as a rookie. Others have hit 30 HRs and 20 doubles before (Braun and Al Rosen) but never the inverse.
Craig Breslow picked up his 15th hold of the season. He pitched 1 scoreless inning on 1 hit against the Royals. Breslow ranks in the top 5 in the AL in appearances.
