Curveballs for Jobu

Curveballs for Jobu is Offbasepercentage's daily trip around the ballparks.

Today's honorary bat boy is Butch Wynegar, whose real name is Harold Delano Wynegar.

Whitesox 11, Twins 0. These are the kind of days Yankees fans live for. Carl Pavano: 6 IP, 15 H, 7 ER.

Indians 7, Royals 3. A Cleveland-Kansas City game is a magical time in sport where the winning team makes five errors and wins by four runs. KC actually led 3-0 heading into the 8th inning, but the Royals decided to hand the ball to Blake Wood, Dusty Hughes and Greg Holland (1 2/3 IP, 6 H, 4 ER). With the win, the Tribe have officially kicked off their run at the 2018 AL pennant.

Marlins 4, Pirates 2. The Buccos fell to 40-81, which means one more loss to clinch an 18th consecutive losing season. And we can also restart the John Russell Countdown to Unemployment at 10 days. Argenis Diaz: 2-for-3, RBI.

Dodgers 2, Rockies 0. As if the Cubs' season wasn't horrifying enough, Ted Lilly pitched a complete game, two-hitter and struck out 11, improving his Dodger numbers to 4-0 with a 1.29 ERA since the trade. Lilly retired 19 batters in a row at one point, and a bewildered Dodger fan, on his way to the parking lot in the sixth inning said "when did the Dodgers trade for Ernie Lilly?"

Astros 3, Mets 2. I apologize to the Lee family, but I didn't know Carlos was still alive. Lee hit a go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning and Bud Norris allowed two runs in seven innings on Bud Norris bobblehead night.
