Daily Roundup 08/22/10 (don’t IBB Teixeira!)

–The Mets had a chance to sweep the Pirates. They didn’t.
—-They lost the game with Johan Santana on the mound.
—–Santana took a no-no into the fifth.
——-They lost 2-1.
———Via @lenno212: Santana became first Mets pitcher to pitch three straight complete games since David Cone in 1990. He is also the first to lose back-to-back CGs since Jerry Koosman in 1977.

–David Ortiz broke up a Shawn Marcum perfecto…
—-with a triple.
——Red Sox starter Buchholz hasn’t given up an ER since August 6th!

–Joey Votto hit a home run for the Reds today.
—It’s the only home run Dodgers’ pitching has given up all week.

–Lou Piniella started this season as Cubs’ manager with a 16-5 loss to Atlanta.
—-He leaves after….another 16-5 loss to Atlanta.

–At one point, the A’s tied their game against the Rays with a bases-loaded balk. They did, however, go on to lose the game.

–Jon Garland finally gave up a run…(the Padres still won)

–The Rangers actually beat the Orioles.
—-Given recent events between these two teams, that’s kind of a big deal.

–Jaime Garcia threw a three-hit complete game shutout against the Giants.
—He’s having a great year, but he’s still a rookie!

–Over the past two seasons, when Mark Teixeira has been intentionally walked, the batter that follows is 7-8 with 25 RBI (thanks to LoHud)

–Alberto Callaspo batted third for the Angels tonight.
—I don’t know much about him, except that he’s the guy Lester struck out for his no-hitter.

    Fun fact: The Braves (73), Reds (72), and Padres (74) are the only teams in their divisions to have 70 or more wins. The AL East has three teams with 77, 76, and 71 wins.

    – The White Sox and Royals played an entire 3-game series in the span of just over 22 hours.
    — All three games went into extra innings.

    Also, regarding Callaspo: Yeah, that’s still the way I thought of him, too, until last week’s Angels-Red Sox series. The box scores will show what he did with the bat in that series, but he was just as lethal with the glove. Still, the other thing the box score won’t show is that the home run in the middle game of that series would have neither cleared the fence nor landed in fair territory in any ballpark other than Fenway. It just barely cleared the wall just to the fair side of Pesky’s Pole, bouncing off a fan in the front row and ricocheting back into the field of play. Given a field with a longer right-field line (which would be any of them), it would’ve hooked foul. So…yeah, I have no idea why Callaspo was batting third, either.
