Major League Baseball Notes

compiled from staff and wire reports

Andy Pettitte (mlb)

Andy Pettitte threw eight sharp innings, struck out eight and walked none. The two-time All-Star gave up his only run on Torii Hunter’s sacrifice fly in sixth inning. The Yankees beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 7-1 on Saturday.

Joe Mauer (mlb)

Joe Mauer matched a career-high high with five hits in Minnesota’s 9-7 win in 12 innings over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday.

Mauer, the 2009 AL MVP, finished 5 for 6 with two RBI’s, including a sacrifice fly in the 12th that gave Minnesota an insurance run.

The Boston Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles, 7-6 on Saturday. The Orioles fell to 2-16, losing their fifth straight game and 1oth in a row to the Red Sox.

Barry Zito (mlb)

Barry Zito of the San Francisco Giants struck out 10 over eight innings as the Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 2-0 Saturday night.

Zito outpitched Adam Wainwright (3-1) to come out the winner in an impressive pitcher’s duel earning his first victory over the Cardinals after starting out 0-4 in his first five outings against them.

Pitching more and more like his Cy Young Award days from eight years ago with the Oakland A’s, Zito (3-0) allowed just 3 hits and walked three in the 114-pitch outing.

Grudzielanek, Kearns and Carmona lead 6-1 win over Oakland

compiled from staff and wire reports

Mark Grudzielanek (mlb)

Mark Grudzielanek hit a tie-breaking RBI single with two outs in the eight inning and Fausto Carmona had another stellar outing for the Indians.

Austin Kearns had three hits and three RBI’s while Mike Redmond doubled and scored twice for Cleveland, which snapped a six-game losing streak to Oakland.

Carmona (3-0) scattered seven hits over 7 1/3 innings and struck out four while lowering his ERA to 2.96.

Indians get pounded by the Oakland Athletics

compiled from staff and wire reports

Justin Duchscherer wasn’t as sharp as he has been this season with his pitches. It didn’t really matter because his A’s teammates turned five double plays in the field.

Duchscherer and two relievers combined on a five-hitter, and Kurt Suzuki homered for the second consecutive day as the A’s beat the Cleveland Indians 10-0 Friday night.

Justin Duchscherer Oakland (mlb)

Duchscherer (2-0) battled command problems most of the game and walked a season-high four batters but earned his second win in his last three starts thanks to Oakland’s defense which bail him out of every jam. The five double plays were the most by the A’s since June 5, 2007 and one shy of the franchise record.

Padres pound Reds 10-4; Gonzalez and Correia lead the way

Cincinnati, Ohio – Kevin Correia has been getting plenty of run support from his underrated teammates.

The San Diego right-hander was on the mound Friday night for the Padres’  second-biggest outburst of the 2010 season, a 10-4 pounding of the Reds. Correia was on the positive end of the 17-2 victory over Atlanta on April 12.

Kevin Correia Padres (mlb)

Correia didn’t allow a hit into the sixth inning and Adrian Gonzalez hit his second career grand slam as the Padres extended its winning streak to seven games.

Speaking of Gonzalez, his homer was the 134th of his career with San Diego, breaking a tie with Ryan Klesko for fifth all-time on the club’s career home run list. Gonzalez needs one to tie Tony Gwynn, Sr., for fourth place. Gonzalez has hit at least one home run in four of San Diego’s last five games against the Reds, dating back to last season.

Adrian Gonzalez Padres (mlb)

Tony Gwynn, Jr., added a two-run homer and Matt Stairs and Everth Cabrera drove in two runs apiece in support of Correia, who didn’t allow a hit until Ryan Hanigan led off the sixth with a double to center field.

Correia (3-1) improved to 6-1 in his career against Cincinnati, including 4-1 at Great American Ball Park. The Reds reached Correia for three hits and two runs in that inning. He left with two outs. Correia walked Joey Votto three times and struck five.

Prince Fielder Brewers (mlb)

Milwaukee matched a club record for margin of victory and set a record for its biggest shutout win.

Prince Fielder belted his first home run of the season and the Brewers had 10 players with an RBI. The Brewers finished with 12 extra-base hits.

Milwaukee led 10-0 after five innings, then scored six runs in the seventh and four more in the ninth. The rout came a day after the Brewers beat up Pittsburgh 8-0.


Kurt Suzuki Athletics (mlb)

Kurt Suzuki hit a three-run homer and later grounded into the Yankees’ first triple play since 1968 as the Oakland Athletics stopped the Yankees six-game winning streak on Thursday.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, Suzuki hit a sharp ground ball to Alex Rodriguez, who stepped on third base and threw to Robinson Cano at  second. Cano’s relay throw to first baseman Nick Johnson barely beat Suzuki.

The Yankees had gone 42 years or 6,632 consecutive regular-season games without a triple play. Their last on was on June 3, 1968, with first baseman Mickey Mantle catching the final out on a ball hit by Minnesota’s John Roseboro.


Carlos Pena Rays (mlb)

Carlos Pena drove in four runs and the Rays took advantage of Jake Peavy’s wildness to beat Chicago and cap the  winningest road trip in Tampa Bay history.

The Rays, who were 32-49 on the road last year, have never finished a season with a winning record away from Tropicana Field. The Rays went 9-1 on their first trip in 2010, outscoring their opponents by a total of 69-23 (Baltimore, Boston and Chicago).
