Earning 1/2 WOBs in losing efforts.
Raul Ibanez hit career homer number 302 and hit number 2,000 and it was a doozy. It was a 3 run, 2 out bottom of the 9th homer that sent the game into extra innings for the Angels. The Mets would wind up winning, 7-6 in 13 innings.
Todd Redmond threw 3 1/3 innings of relief. More to the point, he threw 39 pitches with no margin for error. The winning run could have scored with every pitch. He held off the Orioles in the 9th, 10th and 11th but not in the 12th as Toronto fell 2-1.
Anthony Rendon led off the game with a homer and got on base 3 times. However the Nationals fell to the Braves 6-3.
Matt Cain did everything the Giants could ask him to do. He threw 7 innings, let up just 4 hits and struck out 8. But he got the 1-0 loss against Colorado.
