Who Owned Baseball – Updated May.05/2013
Miguel Cabrera had a night so good that even a Sabermetrics fan would have to concede he owned baseball. The Detroit Tigers star got on base five times against the Houston Astros, with a walk and four hits, including two home runs. He scored three times and drove in six runs, but we are not supposed to notice that anymore.
Jeremy Guthrie of the Kansas City Royals pitched a 4 hit 2-0 complete game shutout of the Chicago White Sox. He is undefeated in his last 17 starts dating back to last season.
Miami pitcher Jose Fernandez held the Phillies to a single hit, no runs and nine strikeouts against one walk over seven innings as the Marlins prevailed.
