Around MLB June 21, 2010
June 21, 2010
Jamie Moyer: Last week Moyer became the oldest pitcher in Major League Baseball history to beat the Yankees. It’s amazing that this guy just keeps going out there year after year and still has the stuff to get batters out.
I always find it a bit comical when a pitcher takes one out the park. Not only did Bronson Arroyo pitch 7 innings and get the win over the Dodgers, he hit a home run in the process.
Speaking of home runs, how about Daniel Nava of the Boston Redsox. He hit a grand slam home run on the first MLB pitch he ever saw.
Streaks and Standings:
Wins: Texas Rangers have won 8 in a row and have a 3.5 game lead in the AL West.
Loss: Washington Nationals have lost 6 in a row and sit at the bottom of the NL East, 11 games back.
Standings: For a complete listing of all the MLB standings go here.
Series of The Week:
I’m looking forward to the Detroit Tigers vs Atlanta Braves (June 25-27). Two quality teams at the top of their divisions. Each game should be a good match-up.
