Valencia Ends Long Ball Drought

Batting 6th, Danny Valencia was 1-4 with 1 HR (his 6th), 3 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the Padres. Also made this nice play at 3rd. Didn't know he had hops like that. This was Valencia's 1st long ball since May 21.

Batting cleanup, Kevin Youkilis was 1-2 with 2 RBIs against the Brewers. Youk had to leave the game because of a "stomach illness."

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 1-5 with 1 run scored against the Braves.

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 1-4 against the Red Sox.

Jason Marquis received a no decision against the Orioles. He went 5 1/3 innings and gave up 4 runs on 12 hits, 0 BBs, and 3 Ks. His groundball to flyball ratio was 14-1. Sounds like he got a little unlucky, as there were more than a few groundballs with eyes. At the plate, he had a sacrifice bunt and scored a run.
