MLB Update:

  • Cutch shifts the stick into drive and sends three out of the park at Petco. #Pirates #Padres
  • It’s not enough to create hysteria or even Lynnsanity at Busch, but St. Louis is certainly please by this strong effort from 3rd starter Lance. #Diamondbacks #Cardinals
  • Rare July Chisox home win means the team will, for now, put off changing the name of their home park to Guaranteed Loss Field. #WhiteSox #Indians

  • Toronto had a seemingly insurmountable mountain to climb in the the bottom of the ninth, but Pillar pounds Pounders, Norris lands with a thud against fierce Pearce and Angels flounder. #Angels #BlueJays
  • Lance didn’t have much of a chance today against the ferocious Tigers; Houston light years ahead in the AL West, but their starting pitching remains a bit of a question mark and games like this only embolden the doubters. #Astros #Tigers
  • Rays stay in Yankees’ rear view mirror with an excellent, group effort from winner Cishek and Co. #Rays #Yankees
  • Yes, the Royals are playing tough right now, but this was a costly loss for the Red Sox, blowing another super effort from Drew Pomerantz. And it doesn’t get any easier Monday for Boston, as the red hot Indians come to town. #Indians #RedSox
