    Stat Line of the Night — 8/1/2013 — Yu Darvish

    Yu Darvish entered Thursday’s action with an MLB-leading 172 strikeouts, and he padded that lead by equaling his season-high in strikeouts as he picked apart the Arizona Diamondbacks’ line-up. Davish pitched seven solid innings, allowing just five hits, no walks and no earned runs against while striking out 14 during the Rangers’ 7-1 victory. With […]

    The Atlanta Braves are on a roll, and that roll continued during Wednesday night’s contest against the Colorado Rockies due in large part to Mike Minor‘s performance on the mound. Looking for their sixth win in a row, the Braves called upon Minor for the start, and the 25-year-old delivered in the form of seven […]

    The Atlanta Braves entered last night’s game against the Colorado Rockies with a four-game winning streak, and they left it with a five-game winning streak thanks in large part to Freddie Freeman‘s performance at the plate. The All-Star first baseman stepped up to the plate five times on the evening, and two of those at […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/29/2013 — Yoenis Cespedes

    Yoenis Cespedes may have impressed everyone with his display of power en route to winning the 2013 MLB Home Run Derby, but he entered last night’s contest against the Toronto Blue Jays without a homer in his last 25 games. It has been quite the power-outage for the 27-year-old left fielder, but he snapped out […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/25/2013 — Mark Buehrle

    After blowing leads in each of their last two games against the Los Angeles Dodgers, it appeared as though the Toronto Blue Jays’ seven-game losing streak was destined to go on forever.  Luckily for the last place team in the AL East, they had Mark Buehrle on the mound last night to make sure that […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/24/2013 — Jered Weaver

    The 2013 MLB season hasn’t been a very good one for Jered Weaver by his standards, as he entered last night’s contest with a 4-5 record and a 3.30 ERA.  But a start against the lowly Minnesota Twins was exactly what he needed in order to improve upon those numbers. Weaver put forth his most […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/23/2013 — Chris Herrmann

    It always feels good to award the “Stat Line of the Night” to some guy that barely anyone has ever heard of, and today just so happens to be another one of those instances, as we award the honor to Minnesota Twins third-string catcher Chris Herrmann. That’s right.  Herrmann plays behind both Joe Mauer and […]

    The Boston Red Sox have dominated the Tampa Bay Rays this season, having won nine of the twelve meetings between these two teams heading into last night’s contest.  But the Rays have been on a roll of their own as of late, as they entered the week with wins in five straight and a 17-2 […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/21/2013 — Bartolo Colon

    What’s Bartolo Colon‘s secret?  Is it a new workout routine?  Perhaps a healthier diet?  Or maybe it’s the steroids!  Whatever it is, it sure as hell seems to be working, because at the age of 40, the righty is currently in the midst of his best season ever. Colon entered yesterday’s game against the Los […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/16/2013 — Mariano Rivera

    In reality, the entire American League pitching staff should be credited with the “Stat Line of the Night,” as they combined to limit the National League All-Stars to just three hits, one walk and no earned runs, while striking out eight over the course of the A.L.’s 3-0 victory at Citi Field.  But on this […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/15/2013 — Yoenis Cespedes

    With a .225 batting average, 15 home runs and 43 RBIs, Yoenis Cespedes‘ numbers at the plate were not enough to earn him a spot on the American League All-Star roster, but his sporadic displays of power at certain points throughout his short career were enough to earn him a place in the home run […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/14/2013 — Justin Verlander

    On Saturday, Tim Lincecum tossed the second no-hitter of the 2013 MLB season, and less that 24 hours later, we were nearly treated to the third no-no in the Majors this year. The culprit in this case was Justin Verlander, as the Detroit Tigers’ ace entered the seventh inning of yesterday afternoon’s game against the […]

The All-Star first baseman started things off […]
