Daily Roundup, 06/13/11

Lots of off days today. Not the most interesting of days, either. But we are still here!

- Zach Duke has as many home runs as Derek Jeter and Jason Bay.
— Duke homered off Ricky Nolasco.
— By the end of the fourth inning in Diamondbacks/Marlins, three different pitchers had extra-base hits.

- The Yankees had bases loaded, nobody out in the first inning of their game. They didn’t score.
— They lost 1-0.
— Cleveland is 2-9 in their last 11 games. Both wins were 1-0 Carlos Carrasco wins.
—- This 1-0 pitchers’ duel was the result of a Carlos Carrasco/AJ Burnett matchup, by the way.
—– Florida also had bases loaded, nobody out today, and didn’t score.
—— Chris Perez, Cleveland’s closer, had a 5.0 K/9 coming into tonight’s game. So of course he struck out the side against the Yankees.

- Speaking of shutouts, the only team in baseball that hasn’t been shut out yet is the Astros.
— Speaking of the Astros and closers, Brandon Lyon since April 23: 7 IP, 16 H, 14 ER, 5 BB, 4 K.

- Brandon Wood home run against the Mets, whose pitching has been really good of late.
— Vernon Wells also homered.
— ETA: He just homered again! And he’s playing in Safeco tonight.

- The Tigers had 11 hits, and only two runs.
— They won.

- h/t @truebluela, Andre Ethier has only three home runs in his last 46 games at Dodger Stadium, but is still hitting a very good .305/.389/.425 over those games.

Because of the short slate and roundup tonight, here’s a random link to a pretty cool summary I found of a rather memorable game (don’t click, Mariners fans). And sure, Cleveland in 2001 was no pushover – but they did this against a 116-win team.

    Astros were shut out 5-0 by the Brewers on April 29.

    Damn, that link was great. Tom Hamilton is so much fun to listen to when he gets all excited like that. Still, down by five runs with only one on and two outs, that’s amazing.

    Here’s the play-by-play for another miracle comeback.

    Not only have the Astros been shut out, they’ve been perfect game’d this year.
