    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/6/12 — Jered Weaver

    Jered Weaver of the Los Angeles Angels has been having himself a Cy Young-worthy season, and he added to his already impressive resume during last night’s start against the Oakland Athletics. Weaver entered the game with an MLB-best 14-1 record and a 2.29 ERA, to go along with two complete games and one shutouts on […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/5/12 — Omar Infante

    Several players from both teams were getting in on the offensive parade during yesterday’s game between the Cleveland Indians and the Detroit Tigers, but it was none other than Tigers’ third baseman Omar Infante who was providing a majority of that offense at the most critical moments of the ballgame. Infante’s first offensive contribution came […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/2/12 — Team USA Basketball

    I was going to award the “Stat Line of the Night” for Thursday, August 2, 2012 to Carmelo Anthony after his 37 points and 10 three-pointers helped him break the Team USA single-game scoring and three-point records in under 15 minutes of action, but it was almost impossible to overlook the incredible statistical performance put […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/1/12 — Matt Holliday

    On Tuesday night the St. Louis Cardinals cashed in a total of 11 runs during their first game of a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field.  They were scoring runs in bunches once again last night, and no Cardinals player was taking advantage of the thin Denver air more than left fielder […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/31/12 — A.J. Burnett

    Approximately one month prior to the start of the 2012 MLB season, many of us were getting quite the laugh out of Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett.  Not only was he coming off consecutive poor seasons with the New York Yankees (a combined 21-26 record and an ERA over 5.00), but he also managed to […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/30/12 — Kendrys Morales

    Those who enjoy offense certainly enjoyed watching last night’s game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers, as both teams provided a total of 28 hits and 23 runs during the Angels’ 15-8 victory over the Rangers.  A majority of those hits and runs came during the top of the sixth inning, with […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/29/12 — Clayton Kershaw

    After winning the Cy Young award following the 2011 MLB season, Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw has struggled to duplicate that level of success in 2012.  His 7-6 record and 3.14 ERA heading into yesterday’s action was a far cry from the 20-5 record and 2.28 ERA that helped earn him honors as […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 7/26/12 — Jason Vargas

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/26/12 — Jason Vargas

    As a pitcher for the Seattle Mariners, Jason Vargas knows that each time he steps on the mound during one of his scheduled starts, there is a good chance he won’t receive much run support.  After all, his team has scored just 395 runs in 101 games thus far this season (and average of 3.9 […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/25/12 — Stephen Strasburg

    Throughout the entire season, Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson has sworn to shut down pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg once he reaches his 160-inning limit.  But with the Nats sitting atop the NL East and looking primed for a playoff birth, shutting Strasburg down won’t be an easy move to go through with, especially when the […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 7/24/12 — Adam Dunn

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/24/12 — Adam Dunn

    Chicago White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn entered last night’s game against the Minnesota Twins with a league-leading 29 home runs.  But his ability to go yard on a regular basis has come at a cost, as he has also displayed an ability to strike out on a regular basis (for proof, look no further […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 7/23/12 — Jeff Samardzija

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/23/12 — Jeff Samardzija

    In 2005, Jeff Samardzija had himself a spectacular season playing wide receiver for the University of Notre Dame’s football team.  Some likely believed that he had a bright future ahead of him as an NFL receiver, but he chose to stick with his other sport; baseball.  And never has that decision looked better than during […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/22/12 — Ryan Doumit

    Wins haven’t been easy to come by for the Minnesota Twins this season, as their 39-55 record heading into Sunday was good enough for last place in the American League.  Taking on the second-worst team in the American League, the Kansas City Royals, the Twins had the opportunity to bring themselves one game closer to […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/19/12 — Edinson Volquez

    With an MLB-low 337 runs scored on the season, the San Diego Padres’ pitching staff knows that every game they go into, they aren’t likely to get a whole lot of run support.  That was certainly the case for Padres starter Edinson Volquez last night, as his team could only manage four hits and one […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/18/12 — Cody Ross

    While the Yankees continue to run away with top spot in the American League East, the other four teams in the division continue to fight for one of the AL’s two available Wild Card positions.  One of those teams is the Boston Red Sox, and they were hoping to maintain their one-game deficit for the […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 7/17/12 — Barry Zito

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/17/12 — Barry Zito

    Barry Zito’s career can be described as somewhat of a roller coaster ride that has had its fair share of ups and downs.  His 2012 season can be described in a similar manner, and on Tuesday night he was experiencing an “up” during his start against the Atlanta Braves. Zito provided seven solid innings of […]
