Only two MOTs in action last night. Both of their teams were involved in streaks of one sort or another.
Craig Breslow pitched a scoreless inning of relief for the Cleveland Indians (84-56), who won their 15th in a row by beating the lowly Chicago White Sox, 11-1. Breslow worked the ninth, giving up a walk and striking out one in what was obviously a non-save situation.
No even the great Clayton Kershaw could prevent the LA Dodgers (92-48) from dropping their seventh straight, succumbing to the visiting Colorado Rockies, 9-1. Joc Pederson was 0-for-1 with a walk before coming out for a pinch-hitter in the seventh.
Richard Bleier did not appear for the Baltimore Orioles (71-69) in their 9-1 loss to the visiting NY Yankees. Max Fried did not appear for the Atlanta Braves (62-77) in their 6-5 win over the visiting Miami Marlins. Ryan Sherriff did not appear for the St. Louis Cardinals (72-68) in their 3-0 shutout at the hands of the host San Diego Padres.Tags: Craig Breslow, Joc Pederson
