Apologies if this is a little rushed. Just got home from seeing Pettitte in Trenton and I wanted to get this out at a reasonable-ish hour (and well, it is now 2 AM so I failed at that goal).
Much of this is h/t to ESPN Stats & Info.
– Texas’ Colby Lewis got his first win since mid-July against Toronto.
— Jose Bautista still homered, of course. With 44 HR, he’s now tied for the third-most HRs in Blue Jays history. #2 is Jose Canseco with 46 in 1998 and #1 is George Bell with 47 in 1987. Think he gets it?
– The Reds/Rockies game… whoah.
— The Reds blew a five-run lead and lost. They’re tied for fewest blown leads resulting in losses in the majors.
— You have to see how the Rockies scored the go-ahead run. You just have to.
—- Oh, and that’s just Chris Nelson’s seventh career MLB game (in which he appeared only as a pinch-runner) and his first career stolen base.
– The Tigers had 13 hits. They were all singles.
— Rick Porcello retired the first 10 White Sox he faced a night after his teammate Jeremy Bonderman did the same thing. The only other time this season that teammates had pitched three or more innings two games in a row against the same opponent were Jake Westbrook and Josh Tomlin.
— Of Cleveland.
—- Oh and that was against the Yankees.
