Stealing Signals: A Lowe Down Dirty Shame.

Marlins 3, Dodgers 0 - I wouldn't want to be Derek Lowe. You pitch an amazing game only to cough up a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth and wreck an otherwise great start. Of course, it would have helped if your teammates could have hit the ball.

Angels 8, Indians 0 - Kelvim Escobar, on fire again, throwing a seven-hitter. The Halos' offense blew up in the third inning, batting around for five runs.

Red Sox 8, Blue Jays 0 - Rarely are teams able to totally wreck Roy Halladay. The Red Sox are one of those teams that can. Not what the Blue Jays needed on top of closer B.J. Ryan being done for the season in order to have Tommy John surgery.

Pirates 6, Cubs 4 - The Cubs just can't get the motors running. Carlos Zambrano is still having issues, inconsistent from start to start, and Pittsburgh was able to get to him yesterday.

Athletics 17, Royals 3 - Are we sure we're not at a Raiders-Chiefs game? Oh, right, KC would have won that one if that were the case. Dan Johnson and Jack Cust both go deep twice for the A's. The Athletics had six homers and 18 hits total.

Rockies 5, Giants 3 - Two errors in the third, including an uncharacteristic one from SS Omar Vizquel, are what screwed the Giants over in this one, particularly the bonehead move by Ryan Klesko for going to first on a bunt instead of home to get the runner out at the plate.

Man, that Marlins game was funny. It's one of those 'oh shit we just lost to the Marlins and we really didn't have to' kind of games that seem to crop up all through the season.

I feel for Lowe though.
