May be updated with some of the West Coast games.
- Huston Street is currently getting an at-bat in the extra innings Rockies/Pirates game.
— He’s also pitching three innings, in April, against the Pirates.
- Manny. That’s all I really need to say.
— I love that it happened in the middle of a Yankees/Red Sox game.
- There’s a rain delay… in San Diego.
- This was just the top of the fourth inning for the Indians in the Indians/Mariners game: single, single, single, single, single, double, sac fly, single, single, strikeout, walk, single, home run, single, strikeout.
— the Indians got their home opener ruined by the White Sox scoring fifteen runs against them. So far, they’ve scored 11 runs against the Mariners at their home opener. It’s the fourth inning.
— Edit: the game is over now, and the Indians won 12-3. They’re in first place in their division for the first time since mid-May 2008.
- Hey, the Rays and Red Sox won today!!
— John Lackey got the win for the Red Sox. He gave up six runs over five innings.
— In Twins/Athletics, Brett Anderson gave up two runs over 7+ innings and got a loss.
—- Oh, and Lackey’s ERA went DOWN by seven.
—– the Rays rallied off Matt Thornton for five runs in the ninth. They scored nine runs in today’s game; that’s more runs than they’ve scored in all the other games combined.
—— Though they had more by the end, the Rays had six hits at one point in the game. That was their season high.
- Cliff Lee walked someone and only lasted four innings, giving up six runs. It was his shortest start since 2009.
- In Giants/Cardinals, both Brian Wilson and Ryan Franklin blew saves after having two outs with no one on.
— Aaron Rowand had the walk-off hit several innings later. This was the Giants’ home opener; he has the walk-off hit in the AT&T Park home opener for two years in a row.
