Curveballs for Jobu is Off Base Percentage's daily trip around the ballparks.
Today's honorary bat boy: Amos Otis
Mariners 1, Reds 0. Cliff Lee is really good. The lefty pitched a complete game, six-hitter and didn't walk anyone. Again. Lee has walked four batters in 10 starts and hasn't given up a base on balls in 27 2/3 innings. Unfortunately, the Mariners are terrible, so Lee will be not walking batters for someone else in about 41 days.
Padres 3, Orioles 2. If David Hernandez is your closer, you probably stink. I think I'm going to make that into a t-shirt. Julio Lugo, who also has an odor, singled in the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth for Baltimore, but Hernandez loaded the bases with no one out in the bottom half, then quickly allowed the winning runs to score.
Indians 4, Pirates 3. Carlos Santana Watch: 2-for-2, 2 walks. The rookie phenom also ripped an RBI-double in a four-run seventh for the Indians, who had to get a save from the appendage formerly known as Kerry Wood's arm to hold off the Bucs. That's 12 consecutive losses for Pittsburgh. I'm all out of Pittsburgh Pirates jokes.
Marlins 7, Devilrays 4. Rookie Mike Stanton belted his first major league home run-a first-inning grand slam-to lead Florida. According to a number of published reports, Stanton came out for a current call, but I'm sorry, I just don't believe that actually happened.
