Keep Giving Him The Green Light

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 3-4 with 1 double (his 10th), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, and 1 SB (his 13th) against the Giants. That's 10 SBs in the month of May.

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 1-3 with 1 HR (his 7th), 1 RBI, and 1 run scored against the Royals. Kinsler was ejected in the 5th inning after arguing a called third strike. Kinsler's next HR will be his 100th career long ball.

Batting 7th, Sam Fuld was 1-4 with 1 RBI against the Indians.

Batting 7th, Danny Valencia was 1-4 with 1 double (his 8th) against the Angels.

Batting cleanup in the 1st game of a doubleheader against the Tigers, Kevin Youkilis was 0-3 with 1 HBP and 1 SB (his 1st). In the 2nd game of the doubleheader, Youkilis was 0-4.

Craig Breslow picked up his 3rd hold of the season. He pitched 1 scoreless inning on 1 BB and 1 K against the Orioles.

Nice to see Breslow get untracked. If Geren gets fired, he'll be even better.

I wrote about Braun's walk rate. Thanks for the tip.
