Curveballs for Jobu

Curveballs for Jobu is Off Base Percentage's daily trip around the ballparks.

Today's honorary bat boy is Kirt Manwaring













Rays 5, Tigers 0. Matt Garza pitched the first no-hitter in Tampa history. That's great. I'm sure non-Yankees fans unlike myself are very happy for him. He still has the most disgusting, whitest spit of any pitcher in baseball, and that was not intended to be a racist comment towards people who spit.

Brewers 3, Reds 2. I never thought I'd be saying this again in 2010, but Milwaukee is playing good baseball. 62-year old Jim Edmonds hit a pinch-hit home run with two outs in the eighth to lift the Crew to their fifth consecutive win. Milwaukee moved to within eight games of first-place St. Louis in the NL Central, or what I like to call The Division The Pirates Are In.

Twins 19, Royals 1. Remember when everyone felt bad for Zach Greinke because the poor, little guy wasn't getting any run support? Well those days have passed us by like the mashed potatoes I found in my refrigerator when I moved out of my apartment this past weekend. Greinke still didn't get any run support Monday, but he didn't need any. The right-hander was Simply Irabuian, allowing eight earned runs in four innings, which is the fourth time in his last ten starts he's surrendered four or more runs. Greinke in three starts against Minnesota in 2010: 14 IP, 16 ER. Oh, Kanekoa Texeira (1 2/3 IP, 5 ER), Victor Marte (1/3 IP, 4 ER) and Dusty Hughes (2 IP, 2 ER) also stunk.

Marlins 4, Giants 3. Eli Whiteside: DNP
