Curveballs for Jobu

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

Today's honorary bay boy is Keith Lockhart and he's here because his middle name is Virgil and that reminds me of the good old days of the WWF.

Hey kids, I'm still in charge of Jobu which means plenty of lowlights of relief pitching and tons of NL West coverage.

Padres 3, Dodgers 1. Miguel Tejada went 3-4 including his 300th career home run. The Padres reclaimed the West lead by .5 game. Aaron Cunningham lead off for the Pads and went 0-4. Potsy: DNP.

Diamondbacks 8, Rockies 4. My beloved Rox fell 3 games back in the West. Tulo is still struggling at the dish going 0-4 with a pair of strikeouts. Todd Helton hit his 7th home run of the season. Seven. In the year 2000, Helton won the National League Slash Line Triple Crown hitting .372/.463/.698 with 42 home runs. He finished 5th in MVP voting despite leading the league in WAR. His Hall of Fame case is debatable and likely the discussion for another post but it's worth noting his career OBP is .424. Hey, Mark Reynolds only struck out twice.

Cubs 2, Giants 0. The Giants surrendered first place and blog favorite Buster Posey didn't help by striking out thrice. Fukudome homered reminding me that he still plays for a major league team.

Rangers 2, Angels 1 (12). The Rangers trimmed their magic number to 4 because the Angels refuse to score any runs for Danny Haren. Haren pitched 7 innings allowing 1 unearned run. *sigh*
