Brewers 6, Nationals 4 - I usually wouldn't feature a pic from a game that you expect the better team to win like this, but I have to note: is any team more on fire than the Brewers right now? I mean, the "this year's Tigers" talk is a little premature, but when you have Prince Fielder jacking a three-run HR and J.J. Hardy adding another in the eighth as the Brew Crew goes 8-1 in nine games on this current homestand, this could stand up, especially in a weak division.
Mets 4, Giants 1 - The "1" on your scoreboard is #745 from the bat of Barry Bonds. Otherwise, Tom Glavine was on lockdown, now six victories away from 300.
Pirates 4, Cubs 3 - Amazing. Jack Wilson has an 0-6 day at the plate, yet drives in the two runs for sac flies in the 9th and the 15th to win the game for the Bucs. First blown save of the year for the Cubs' Ryan Dempster.
Twins 7, White Sox 4 - Justin Morneau comes up big again with Joe Mauer on the DL. He hits two homers in the game, plus the game-winning 3-run homer in the bottom of the 10th.
Tigers 9, Mariners 7 - Don't look now, but the Tigers have won eight straight, matching the Giants' earlier streak for the longest in the majors this season. Right now, the only concern is Jeremy Bonderman's first inning issues -- he gave up another jack in the first to Richie Sexson, and five earned overall. It's not hampering his wins -- he hasn't lost in his last 11 starts.
Red Sox 9, Blue Jays 2 - Josh Beckett is now 7-0, while the BoSox offense pounds out four home runs (Lowell, Youkilis, Pedroia, and Varitek). The Blue Jays have lost seven straight.
