Daily Roundup, 08/27/10

Moderately less totally crazy ;_;

– This is why I always try to save these roundups for after the West Coast games, even if they go out super late: Brad Lidge just balked in the tying run in San Diego. Then again, knowing Lidge, maybe this is kinda predictable.
— This right after he threw what was actually a strike (though the umpires didn’t call it) in the middle of an intentional walk.

– The Indians scored 15 runs.
— They had three three-run home runs for the first time since July 2004.
— The Indians’ backup catcher, Chris Gimenez, had two hits, including a home run, and 4 RBI. He was batting .172 coming into tonight.

– The Marlins opened their game against the Braves with back-to-back home runs, including Logan Morrison’s first major league home run.
— It was the first time in franchise history the Marlins began a game with back-to-back home runs.
— The homers were against Tommy Hanson. He went on to give up two more homers in the game. He’d only given up 8 HR in 153 innings this year prior to this start.
—- Billy Wagner pitched in the ninth inning of this game. The score was 7-1, Marlins.

– The White Sox scored 9 runs, all of them within the first four innings. I guess that’s what happens when you face a starter who doesn’t have it?

– Ubaldo Jimenez had a one-hit shutout going into the eighth inning… and lost.
— The Rockies lost for just the third time in 13 games at Coors Field.

– The Diamondbacks shut out the Giants. That’s not that big a deal, but they DID have their bullpen pitch two innings.

– Tonight, the Mets had 3 hits, and 2 runs. The Astros, who they played, had 9 hits… and only 1 run.
— Similarly, tonight the Cardinals played the Nationals. The Cardinals had 7 hits, and 4 runs. The Nationals had 12 hits… and 2 runs.

– Brad Bergesen, August: 3-0, 3.49 ERA; Tim Lincecum, August: 0-5, 7.82 ERA

– Jay Bruce of the Reds hit three home runs.
— He was batting leadoff because the Reds’ usual leadoff hitter, Brandon Phillips, has a sore right hand. It’s the first time he’s batted leadoff in two years.
— One of Bruce’s HRs was followed by Chris Valaika’s first career home run.

Oh and Jose Bautista hit another HR, of course.
