Marquis Involved In A Beanball War

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 1-5 against the Marlins.

Batting cleanup, Danny Valencia was 0-3 with 1 BB against the Royals.

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 0-4 with 1 BB against the Indians.

Batting cleanup, Kevin Youkilis was 0-4 against the A's.

Batting 9th, Sam Fuld was 0-4 against the Mariners.

Jason Marquis received a no decision against the Diamondbacks. He pitched 5 1/3 scoreless innings on 3 hits, 3 BBs, and 4 Ks. Marquis was ejected in the 6th inning for hitting Justin Upton after Jayson Werth had previously been hit by a pitch. It should be noted that Werth had been plunked twice earlier in the series as well. Seems like Marquis was just protecting his teammate.
