No Time For Pitchers

If this is a preview of the NLCS (sorry, Central Division! A fruit basket is on its way), we don't plan to miss a single game. Tom Glavine (he's still stuck at 299 career wins) and Derek Lowe both stunk, which is always fun, because the Mets and Dodgers combined for 35 hits in a 13-9 win by New York. Carlos Delgado and Ramon Castro hit consecutive home runs in the sixth and Carlos Beltran had a solo homer in the eighth. Matt Kemp had a two-run home run for the Dodgers, who lost for the second time in three games to drop into a first-place tie with San Diego for the West lead.

No Comment! Leave Me Alone! Barry Bonds hit homers No. 752 and 753 to leave him two shy of Aaron, as the Giants lost 9-8 to the Cubs, who got their 18th victory in the past 23 games, moving six games over .500 (50-44) for the first time since June 11, 2005. And in a delightful twist, you couldn't shut Bonds up after the game, but the kid who retrieved the second home run ball refused to talk to the press: "Tyler Olson, a 13-year-old from Freeport, Ill., came up with No. 753. The teen declined comment."


Rock Out With Your Sox Out. There it is again, that inevitable feeling of doom for Boston fans; like a cement block resting on your chest. A.J. Pierzynski was 3-for-4 with three RBI as the White Sox beat the Red Sox 4-2. Thing is though, the Yankees also lost, 3-2 to the Blue Jays, to remain seven back in the East.

The Young And The Restless. Chris Young (9-3) has a 1.85 ERA, and it's a good thing, because the Padres are cheap bastards when it comes to giving him run support. Young gave up two hits over seven innings in San Diego's 1-0 win over the Phillies.

Indians 7, Rangers 5. C.C. Sabathia, your first 13-game winner in the majors. Take a bow SeeSee. OK, that's enough; don't milk it.
