Monday. Need I say more?
Danny Valencia highlighted the doings for the few MOTs in action. He hit home run #14, good for one run, but the Seattle Mariners (66-65) lost to the host Baltimore Orioles (66-65), 7-6. Valencia, who played right field and first base (but not at the same time), also had a single and a walk. Richard Bleier did not appear for the Os.
Kevin Pillar doubled (#31) and scored a run in four at-bats, but the Toronto Blue Jays (61-70) lost to the visiting Boston Red Sox, 6-5. He did contribute this great catch (HT to Scott Barancik for the clip).
Ian Kinsler was 1-for-4 for the Detroit Tigers (57-73) in their 4-3 win over the host Colorado Rockies. Manager Brad Ausmus is still bemused by his recent suspension in the aftermath of the Tigers-Yankees brawls last week.
And that’s all she wrote.
