Kinsler's HR Milestone

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 2-3 with 2 BBs, 1 HR (his 8th), 1 RBI, 2 runs scored, and 1 SB (his 13th) against the Yankees. The solo shot was Kinsler's 100th career HR. Kinsler and Shawn Green are the only 2 JMLs with 100 HRs and 100 SBs (Ryan Braun will probably join them next season). Kinsler has a legitimate shot at 200 HRs and 200 SBs when it's all said and done.

Batting cleanup, Kevin Youkilis was 1-4 with 1 HR (his 10th), 3 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the Rays. Youk's 3-run shot in the 7th inning was the game-winner for the Red Sox.

Batting 3rd, Braun was 3-5 with 2 doubles (his 14th and 15th) and 3 runs scored against the Cubs.

Batting 6th, Danny Valencia was 1-4 with 1 double (his 12th) and 1 RBI against the White Sox.

John Grabow pitched 1 inning and gave up 1 run on 1 hit against the Brewers.
