—-The Pirates are now 50 games under .500. Yes, 50.
——The Mets’ Lucas Duda has three career hits–and all of them are doubles.
–The Indians won on a walk-off error.
–Via @soxmachine: Brent Morel has two more extra-base hits than Manny Ramirez in a White Sox uniform.
—The White Sox had an 8-2-5 DP (Rios-Pierzynski-Morel).

–The Giants’ game is still going on, but unless they blow a four run lead, the Padres’ will no longer be in first.
