30/30 A Reality For Braun

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 2-4 with 2 HRs (his 29th and 30th), 2 RBIs, and 2 runs scored against the Reds. Braun joins Shawn Green and Ian Kinsler in a pretty exclusive club. Braun has hit 30 or more HRs in 4 of his 5 seasons.

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 1-4 against the Mariners. Kinsler has played in 145 games. That is new career-high for a season.

Danny Valencia was scratched from today's lineup because of the flu.

Kevin Youkilis sat out today. It has already been announced he'll sit out tomorrow as well.

Craig Breslow pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings on 1 K against the Tigers.

Scott Feldman pitched 1 scoreless inning on 1 K against the Mariners.

Michael Schwimer picked up his 1st loss of the season. He pitched 1 inning and gave up 2 runs on 3 hits and 2 BBs against the Cardinals.
