They are 0-44 when trailing after 9 or more innings.

Today in baseball...

6 of the 10 games in which I had a strong preference for a winner ended with the "right" winner.

This was highlighted by the Dodger win over Chicago.

The trio of Matt Kemp, Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen led the way with Kemp homering, Kershaw pitching 7 strong innings and adding two hits, and Jansen closing the door.

Rockies Matt McBride made his major league debut today, and got his first major league hit in the 5th inning.

I had the pleasure of meeting Matt and his dad a few years ago in Arizona spring training, he was coming off missing a lot of the previous season due to injury. Classy kid, and comes from a very supportive family.

Glad to see nearly 7 seasons of minor league work pay off. Couldn't happen to a nicer kid.

Mariners now 9-3 since trading Ichiro.

Yankees are 5-6 with him.

Ichiro is right at replacement level at this stage of his career. .256 .273 .349 in 43 plate appearances as a Yank. 0.0 WAR.

Ichiro still looking for his first base on balls as a New Yorker.

Astros about to lose yet another series, this time to Atlanta, and on the heels of an exciting game last night where Justin Maxwell clubbed two home runs (which the 'Stros won).

Chipper Jones offers some reflections about the Astros' impending move to the American League and the great memories he's had as a Brave vs Houston.

Astros moving to AL is 'strange' for Chipper | braves.com: News

I'd say it isn't their year....

Ichiro has a 12-game hitting streak which ties Don Slaught (1988) for the longest by a new player joining the Yankees.

Ichiro has been hit by zero pitches in every other game this season.

Craig Kimbrel faced 3 batters and struck them all out.

In his last 28 appearances, Kimbrel has pitched 28 innings and K'd 50 batters while walking 1.

Guess we are learning how his teammates really felt about him.
