Stealing Signals: Serves Me Right For Talking Ish.

White Sox 6, Rangers 0 - Figures. I slag on Mark Buehrle in yesterday's edition and he goes out and throws a no-no, giving up only a walk to Sammy Sosa in the fifth, and then picked him off.

Mets 9, Marlins 2 - John Maine was trying to join Buerhle, but Miguel Cabrera broke up that no hit bid in the seventh, and Joe Burchard hit a two-run homer. Mets fans are still waiting for the franchise's first no-no, but with the pitching issues going into the season, we'll take seven innings of two-run and two-hit ball from Maine.

A's 3, Angels 0
- No Vlad + no Kendrick = no bats for the Angels. Seven scoreless for Dan Haren.

Giants 6, Cardinals 5
(12 innings) - Barry adds #738 to the total, and Rich Aurilia knocks in the game-winning hit after three innings of quality relief from Giants rookie Jonathan Sanchez, which means there is at least one highlight for the SF bullpen.

Yankees 9, Indians 2
- A-Rod homers again. Yawn. 12 games out of 13 with an extra base hit, nine home runs leading the majors, .365 batting average. None of it came against the Red Sox, though. So there.

Nationals 5, Phillies 4 - After Charlie Manuel challenged a sportswriter to a fight last night, it's clear the Phillies couldn't buy a break if they were sold down at the corner store for a buck. Losing to the hapless Nats on a sacrifice fly in the 13th inning marks the beginning of the Manuel Hot Seat watch. I'm betting on "fired by July."

Twins 5, Mariners 3 - Notable solely for the held breath of every Mariner fan as ace Felix Hernandez leaves early, hurt after only retiring one batter and giving up two runs.
