Roberto Hernandez, formerly Fausto Carmona, wins first game since name change

It has been quite awhile since Roberto Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona had won a game on the mound.

Yesterday, for the Tampa Bay Rays, he pitched effectively for six innings, allowed one earned run, three hits, three walks and seven strikeouts in an 8-1 win over the Oakland Athletics.

The win was his first since becoming Roberto Hernandez and he is 1-3 to start the 2013 season.

The victory was also his since September 20, 2011 when he pitched for the Cleveland Indians.

The 32-year-old right-hander has changed his life after completing a work program. He was arrested in the Dominican Republic in January of 2012 on false-identity charges. The charges were later dropped.

Hernandez has a career record of 54-72 with an ERA of 4,64 and 592 strikeouts.

Oakland Athletics designated hitter Hideki Matsui was named a recent American League Player of the Week for the period ending July 24th.

In five games during the honored period, Matsui batted a Major League-leading .571 (12-for-21) with two doubles, two home runs, seven RBI’s and four runs scored en route to winning his fourth career A.L. Player of the Week Award, his first since June 20, 2005.

Matsui becomes the second Athletic to win the award in July, joining teammate Gio Gonzalez, who won co-honors with Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista on July 5th. In addition to leading MLB in batting average, the 37-year-old led both leagues with a .591 on-base percentage and finished second with a .592 slugging percentage.

Among A.L. leaders, Matsui tied for first in hits, was tied for second in RBI’s and finished third with 20 total bases. In Detroit, the left-handed slugger went 3-for-4 with a run scored and three RBI as he blasted his 500th career homer in pro baseball to lead the A’s over the Tigers in Comerica Park. Matsui’s sixth-inning solo shot snapped a 24-game homerless streak, his longest in four seasons, and became the first player to combine for 500 homers in the Major Leagues and Japan.

A native of Ishikawa, Japan, Matsui has 169 homers in nine MLB seasons and compiled 332 homers in 10 years with the Yomiuri Giants of Japan’s Central League from 1993-2002.
