Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has his name in the Major League Baseball record books.

The 27-year-old Texan belted his MLB-leading 37th home run on Sunday as Baltimore cruised by the Toronto Blue Jays 7-4.

The 37th homer tied an American League record at the All-Star break.

With his recent power surge of homering in his fourth straight games, Davis equaled Reggie Jackson’s 1969 American League record for home runs before the All-Star break. The MLB overall record is 39 by Barry Bonds in 2001.

Davis has 93 RBI’s at the break, which is second-most in MLB behind Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera. He and Cabrera are the only players in major league history to have 30 home runs and 90 RBI’s at the All-Star break.

The left-handed hitting Davis has reached career highs in both homers and RBI’s and still has 66 games left to add to his totals.

Tigers’ Cabrera hits 300th homer in win over White Sox


Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera hit his 300th career homer, to become just the second-Venezuelan-born player to reach that plateau in Major League Baseball.

Cabrera’s third inning blast against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday was his second homer in Detroit’s 6-4 win.

“The Big Cat” Andres Galarraga leads the pack as the career leader in homers for players from Venezuela with 399. Galarraga is now 51 years old and lives in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The Cleveland Indians believe in themselves, even if their fans and media don’t.

They just swept the Detroit Tigers, the hands-down choice to win the AL Central Division.

Justin Masterson outdueled Justin Verlander on Thursday afternoon to beat Detroit for the first time in his career, as the first-place Indians held off the Tigers, 2-1. Masterson, now 2-3 on the season, came into the game 0-4 against the Tigers.

The Indians lead the reeling Tigers by six games.

The Tigers have lost 6 of their last 8 games.

Detroit struggled during the series. They stranded 30 runners in the series and went just 3 of 28 (.107) with runners in scoring position. The Motown teams 3-4-5 hitters went 0-12 with runners at secord or third base. Those hitters are Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and Delmon Young.

Shin-Soo Choo homered on the third pitch of the game from Verlander, who falls to 5-2. The Tribe has won eight times in 10 games.



This time, Tampa Bay Rays gets a no-hitter in their favor


Going into Monday night’s game against Detroit, Matt Garza was 0-4 with a 5.85 ERA in 6 starts against them. The Tigers always managed to knock him out of the games early.

Well, Matt Garza received his revenge against the boys from Motown, after facing the minimum 27 batters to beat the Detroit Tigers, 5-0.

Garza’s no-hit gem at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, left the New York Mets and the San Diego Padres as the only major league teams without a no-hitter.

The Rays are now in second-place in the AL East behind the New York Yankees, a season-high 22 games over .500 and 3 games behind in the division race.

Garza set a team record for fewest batters faced in a complete game, allowing only a second-inning walk to Brennan Boesch, who was erased off the bases by a double play.

Garza, who is 26 years old, had a previous longest bid for a no-hitter was six innings twice, including June 26, 2008 at Florida, when he gave up a homer to Hanley Ramirez leading off the seventh inning and finished with a 1-hitter.

Garza, now 11-5, dominated the Tigers with high fastball after high fastball in a lineup without start players, Brandon Inge, Miguel Cabrera and Magglio Ordonez who are injured.

Jeanmar Gomez, Indians handle Tigers and Vermilion native Andy Oliver

compiled from staff and wire reports

Andy Oliver grew up as a Cleveland Indians fan. The rookie left-hander grew up in Vermilion, Ohio which is 40 miles west of Cleveland. He says he still roots for the Tribe, but not when they play his team, the Detroit Tigers.

On Sunday afternoon at Progressive Field, Oliver had family members and several friends on had as he pitched against his childhood team. He wished he hadn’t taken the mound.

Oliver pitched 3 2/3 innings, allowing five runs, walked five, struck out four and allowed four hits while dropping to (0-4).

The Tigers as a team didn’t fare well in the series especially their two sluggers, Magglio Ordonez and Miguel Cabrera who went a combined 5 for 28 with each being struck out five times.

The Indians got rolling early as Jhonny Peralta’s fly ball made to center-field turned into an inside-the-park home run and Jeanmar Gomez won his major league debut as the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 7-2 to complete the four-game sweep.

Cleveland had its first four-game home sweep over Detroit since 1991. The Tigers were outscored in the series 21-8, and has lost five in a row overall and fell to 16-29 on the road and 16-21 against the American League Central Division.

Gomez (1-0), was called-up from Triple-A Columbus to make a spot start, allowed two unearned runs over seven innings.  A Venezuelan who was signed by Cleveland in 2005 at 17, struck out four and allowed only one walk and five hits.

Gomez was called up to pitch in the place of Justin Masterson, who was moved back a day in the rotation to give Gomez a look-see by the Indians organization. But he knew he was in town for one game and he was given a plane ticket to rejoin the Columbus Clippers in Durham, North Carolina for their four-game series with the Durham Bulls which starts Monday night.

The Indians brass have known that Jeanmar Gomez is talented. He pitched a perfect game at Double-A Akron in May of 2009, but the 22-year-old only had a mystifying 6-8 record and a 5.70 ERA in 18 starts for a talented and offensively solid Columbus team this season.

The right-handed Gomez was put at ease early with the Indians scoring 3 runs in the first inning, when Jhonny Peralta had to leg out his seventh home run of the season.

Let’s set the scene. With runners at first and second and two outs, Peralta hit a 1-1 pitch from Andy Oliver towards the Cleveland bullpen in center-field. Detroit centerfielder Ryan Raburn leaped for the ball, but tumbled through the bullpen door. Raburn could’nt get to the ball because no only did he fall into the bullpen, but his uniform had stuck to the bullpen door. The ball caromed off the wall and by the time leftfielder Brennan Boesch could retrieve it, Peralta, one of the slowest runners in baseball, was circling the bases.

Peralta slide home beating the relay throw by shortstop Danny Worth with Cleveland’s first-inside-the-park homer since Grady Sizemore did it against Baltimore on April 27, 2007.
