Batting cleanup, Kevin Youkilis was 2-5 with 1 double (his 5th), 1 HR (his 2nd), 2 RBIs, and 2 runs scored against the Blue Jays. Youk nearly hit 2 oppo HRs in this game.
Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 2-3 with 2 BBs, 1 double (his 3rd), 1 triple (his 1st), and 1 run scored against the Angels.
Batting leadoff, Sam Fuld was 4-4 with 1 double (his 6th) and 1 run scored against the White Sox. Also made this great diving catch in center field. Who would have thought that Desmond Jennings would be blocked by Sam Fuld? Fearless prediction: Fuld's WAR will rival Matt Garza's this year.
Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 3-4 with 1 BB, 2 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the Phillies. Braun hit a sacrifice fly to the deepest part of Citizens Bank Park in center field in the 12th inning to give the Brewers the lead and ultimately the win. Is this the year Braun wins MVP?
Batting 7th, Danny Valencia was 2-4 with 1 RBI and 2 runs scored against the Orioles.
