A very light night for baseball with only two of the boys in action.
Ryan Braun — batting second these days — had his best showing in awhile with two singles, a double (#16), and a run scored, but the Minnesota Twins overcame a 4-1 deficit to beat the Milwaukee Brewers (59-55), 5-4.
In a replay of 1909 World Series opponents, Ian Kinsler was 0-for-4 as the Detroit Tigers (51-60) were shut out by the host Pittsburgh Pirates, 3-0. Owner of the Pirates at the time: Barney Dreyfuss, the only Jew with a plaque in the Hall of Fame besides Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax (unless you count Lou Boudreau).
Richard Bleier did not appear for the Baltimore Orioles (56-56) in their 6-2 win over the host LA Angels.
