Curveballs for Jobu

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

Today's honorary bat boy is Bip Roberts.

Rangers 4, Twins 0. Rich Harden, who came off the DL a few hours before Monday's game, and three relievers had a no-hitter through 8 1/3 innings before that bum Joe Mauer singled. Andres Blanco: second-inning single.

Giants 11, Reds 2. Edinson Volquez became the latest pitcher to perform in the famous musical Steve Trout: My Story. Volquez faced 10 batters and got two of them out, allowing five earned runs in the first inning as San Fran rolled.

Cubs 9, Nationals 1. The Cubbies had their first good news since May, 2006 as rookie Casey Coleman allowed a run in 6 1/3 innings for his first ML win. In other news, Andrew Cashner pitched 1 2/3 perfect innings and was final given his own locker with a name plate.

Tigers 12, Royals 3. Like MTD (near-overdose on paper clips) Jesse Chavez did not have a very good Monday night. In his inning of work, Chavez allowed seven earned runs, and Kansas City was mathematically eliminated from the 2011 and 2012 AL Central races.

Astros 3, Phillies 2. Brett Wallace: 0-for-4.
