Daily Roundup, 06/12/10

– A night after Jamie Moyer put up his sweet line at Fenway, Joe Blanton tried to best him. He didn’t quite do that, but his line of 4 IP, 13 H, 9 R/ER was pretty, um, awesome anyway. If I calculated it right, it means that so far, Phillies starters in the Phillies/Red Sox series have an ERA of 32.40. Yes, it’s a two-game sample size. That’s still kind of fun to goggle at.

– In that Phillies/Red Sox game, Daniel Nava, a rookie just called up from the minors by Boston, hit a grand slam on the first pitch he saw.

– Both New York shortstops led off their games with leadoff home runs.

– Derek Jeter now has as many home runs as Alex Rodriguez in this season. He had his first multi-homer game since 2006 today.

– Fausto Carmona pitched a complete game three-hitter.

– The Rockies defeated the Blue Jays 1-0 at Coors.

– Carlos Pena has homered in six straight games… and he just got his batting average up above the Mendoza line.

– The Mets won two games in a row on the road. That’s the first time they’ve done that since late July of last year.

– The score of the Royals/Reds game was 11-5. All of the runs were scored in the fourth inning or earlier, and the Royals scored all of their runs in one inning (the second).

– The Padres scored seven runs on a night Cliff Lee was on the mound against them.

– Barry Zito finally beat his former team, the Oakland As, after facing them four times previously. He’d gone 0-4 with an 8.85 ERA in his past four games against Oakland.

– Thanks to @mikeaxisa on Twitter, the Brevard County Manatees, the High-A affiliate of the Brewers, have hit twelve home runs all year as a team.

– This question was on the Mets’ broadcast tonight:
Would you rather see Hisanori Takahashi as a starter or reliever?
a. Yes
b. No
