C.C. Is Not A Singles Hitter

Illustration for article titled C.C. Is Not A Singles Hitter

After a rough start to the season Cleveland's C.C. Sabathia has found his groove on the mound, and now at the plate as well. The rotund power pitcher didn't like his teammates calling him a singles hitter after last year's round of interleague play, so he stepped into the box in his first at bat of the season and crushed Chan Ho Park's offering some 440 feet. Sabathia matched that power on the mound, striking out 10 Dodgers in seven innings while yielding just one run on a Matt Kemp homer. The score remained locked at one until Cleveland exploded for six runs in the 11th inning.


Somebody In Boston Was Happy. I've yet to see video of a drunken soon-to-be-former editor of this site dancing outside of Fenway last night, but that doesn't mean it isn't out there somewhere. Will's beloved Cardinals smacked around the Red Sox, chasing Dice K from the game after loading the bases in the second in the pitcher's return from the disabled list. Troy Glaus took advantage of the situation, launching a grand slam off of Chris Smith. Oh, and some guy named Ankiel went deep as well.

Saunders Wins His Eleventh. Anaheim's Joe Saunders became MLB's first 11 game winner after scattering five hits in seven innings against the Phillies. Vlad went deep for the third time in two games as the Angels picked up the 6-2 victory.
