Miguel Cabrera was a triple short of the Cycle. He went 4-4 with a single, a double and a pair of homers. He drove in three and scored three as the Tigers beat the Rays, 6-3.

Delmon Young went 3-6 with a double and six runs batted in, leading the Phillies to a 16-1 embarrassment of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Bartolo Colon threw 8 innings of 1 run, 6 hit ball as the A’s beat the Mighty Cardinals handily, 6-1.

And Matt Harvey may have been ripped off by the Mets bullpen, but he was sensational. He threw perfect game into the 5th inning. He finished the game letting up just 3 hits, 1 run and no walks in 7 innings, striking out 11 along the way. The Mets relievers surrendered the lead and ultimately the game to the Nationals, 6-4. That doesn’t make Harvey’s start any less noteworthy.

Dillon Gee was brilliant pitching 8 1/3 innings after a rain delay and before a double header. His bid for a shutout was cruely ended by Freddie Freeman‘s 2 strike, 2 run walk off homer. But that does not diminish his brilliant effort.

Giancarlo Stanton had 2 of the Marlins 3 hits and drove in all three runs with a pair of homers. One was in the 9th inning and broke the tie as the Marlins beat the Diamondbacks 3-2.

Josh Johnson may not have received a decision, but his 7 1/3 innings of shutout ball with 10 strikeouts against 2 walks helped set up the Blue Jays 2-0 win over the Rockies.

And Nelson Cruz clubbed a double and pair of homers, driving in 4 as the Rangers squeaked past the A’s, 8-7.

Sam Evans (Baseball Writer): 

After Josh Thole’s promising year in 2010, it seemed almost as if Thole was a long-term solution for the New York Mets at catcher. However, over the last three years, Thole has become less and less productive at the plate. In just one day, New York made a statement proving that they no longer believe Josh Thole can be the kind of player he was when he first arrived in the majors. The Mets made a gigantic trade with Toronto yesterday, which will send out Thole and bring in Travis d’Arnaud, one of the finest catching prospects in the game. Thole’s future in New York is over, while d’Arnaud’s is just beginning.

After being selected in the 13th round of the 2005 Amateur Draft, Thole spent five seasons in the minors. While moving up through the minor league ranks, Thole never dominated any level but he hit for average and played solid defense pretty much everywhere he went. Years later, Thole’s value is practically centered around his ability to hit for average and play average defense behind the plate. Read the rest of this entry
