Rangers end an 8-game losing streak to the Twins with a 9-3 win at Target Field in Minneapolis. The Rangers rode a seven-run second inning, and C.J. Wilson improved to 7-3, using many movie references to describe his pitching performance through heavy rain.

Filihok: Yakety Sax: Jonathan Herrera (6/11/11)

Quote:
The latest Yakety Sax inducing play wasn't committed by a team, but a single player. The Rockies' Jonathan Herrera.

With the Dodgers leading the Rockies 8 - 6 in the top of the ninth inning and runners at the corners with 0 outs, LA had a Win Probability of 94.9%.

Dodgers' batter Tony Gwynn hit a sharp ground ball to the Rockies' 2nd baseman Jonathan Herrera, who had to make a quick decision on what to do.

...

To see what Herrera chose to do, play this video.

While listening to
this video.

It appears that Herrera didn't have any idea what to do. He looks like he began to throw home, then tried to tag the runner going by. However he missed the runner going to second, and his throw home was late. Everybody safe. This play gave the Dodgers a 96.7% Win Probability, decreasing Colorado's Win Probability by 3.2%.

Another bad start for Colby Lewis - chased after 1.1 innings and giving up 6 runs, all en route to an 8-1 Ranger loss.

Twins are 8-2 in the last 10...and they are still the bottom team in the AL by 2 games. What a terrible start. Hope they get healthy.

^And they almost no-hit the Rangers yesterday, as Francisco Liriano took his potentional second no-hitter of the season into the 8th, but an Adrian Beltre single broke it up. Twins won, 6-1, Rangers are 2-5 in their last 7 games.

CHICAGO -- White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko has never won an MVP, home run or RBI crown or led the league in batting average, but that didn't stop his manager from stumping for his place among the greatest to ever play the game.


"He will be in the Hall of Fame," White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said Sunday. "And by the way, PK did it clean, there's no doubt he did it the right way."
Obviously Ozzie says crazy things all the time, but how crazy is this? How many more good seasons would PK have to have before we consider him HOF worthy?
