Mike Trout collected four hits over the course of the two Angels-Red Sox games, driving in runs in both games, helping the Halos won the opener, 9-5.

John Danks won his first game since his 2012 shoulder surgery. He went 8 innings, letting up 1 run and 3 hits, retired the final 21 Oakland A’s he faced, en route to a 4-1 White Sox victory.

Kyle Blanks hit a go ahead home run that was enough for the Padres to top the Rockies, 4-2.

And in a game that might still be going on, Kevin Slowey entered the Marlins-Mets game in the 13th inning. He threw 94 pitches, each one could have ended the game if the Mets scored a run. They never did. 7 shutout innings would be a terrific start. It is a fabulous relief performance. And on the road? It is mindboggling.

They all owned baseball on June 8th, 2013.

At the end of the year, we will tally up who owned baseball the most individual days and see how it compares to the final MVP and Cy Young vote.
