    Stat Line of the Night — 8/22/2013 — Clayton Kershaw

    Clayton Kershaw appears to be well on his way to earning the 2013 NL Cy Young award, and last night’s performance may have just solidified that status for the Dodgers’ lefty. Kershaw seemed to be up to his usual routine against the Marlins on Thursday, as he allowed just five hits and three walks while […]

    The Cincinnati Reds entered Wendesday with a five-game lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks for the final Wild Card spot in the National League, and they came out of Wednesday with a six-game league over the D-Backs, thanks in large part to Shin Soo-Choo‘s performance at the plate.

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/20/2013 — Justin Morneau

    Beating the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers has not been an easy feat to accomplish for most MLB teams this season, but last night the Twins’ Justin Morneau did just that pretty much all by himself. The 32-year-old first baseman from Canada stepped to the plate five times on Tuesday and he came away with four […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/19/2013 — Nate Schierholtz

    The 2013 season has been another disappointing one for the Chicago Cubs, but that hasn’t been the case for Nate Schierholtz.  The 29-year-old right fielder entered Monday night with career highs in home runs (16) and RBIs (52), and he added to those totals in a big way during his team’s series opener against the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/18/2013 — Chris Davis

    Few would argue against the fact that Miguel Cabrera owns the most feared bat in the Major Leagues these days.  As for the second most feared bat, that would have to belong to Chris Davis. The man they call “Crush Davis” was doing some more crushing on Sunday against the Colorado Rockies, as he went […]

    When it comes to drafting and developing pitchers, few do it better than the Oakland Athletics.  Entering last night they have had three rookie starters pitch eight scoreless innings in a game over the last two season, and on Thursday they witnessed their fourth rookie starter accomplish that feat. Making just his second career Major […]

    No, you are not experiencing a case of déjà vu.  Alfonso Soriano really has earned our “Stat Line of the Night” for the second consecutive day.

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/13/2013 — Alfonso Soriano

    On July 26 of this season, the New York Yankees made a deal with the Chicago Cubs to acquire left fielder Alfonso Soriano.  Last night, that move paid dividends during a game against the Los Angeles Angels. Soriano stepped to the plate six times on the evening, recording two homers, a single, three runs and […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/12/2013 — Yu Darvish

    On April 2nd of this season, Yu Darvish was one out away from pitching a perfect game against the Houston Astros before giving up a single to Marwin Gonzalez with two outs in the ninth.  On August 12th of this season, it was nearly déjà vu all over again. During an afternoon game against the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/11/2013 — Steven Strasburg

    One year after putting together a 15-6 record on the mound, wins have not been easy to come by for Washington Nationals starting pitcher Steven Strasburg.  Despite posting a solid 3.01 ERA through his first 22 starts of the season, the 25-year-old righty was the not-so-proud owner of a 5-9 record.  He entered Sunday in […]

    Tim Lincecum entered Thursday’s action in search of his first win since recording a no-hitter back on July 13th of this season.  The Giants have lost each of his three starts since he accomplished the feat, but that skid came to an end thanks to another near-perfect performance from “The Freak.” Lincecum stymied the Brewers […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/7/2013 — Matt Harvey

    Matt Harvey has been one of the lone bright spots for the New York Mets this season, as he was named the starting pitcher for the National League during the 2013 All-Star Game at Citi Field, and he entered last night’s contest with an 8-3 record and a 2.21 ERA.  However, there was still one […]

    After climbing through the ranks of the Minnesota Twins farm system and doing enough to impress the team’s management, Andrew Albers was finally given the opportunity to start his first career Major League Baseball game at the age of 27 last night.  And despite taking on one of the hottest teams in baseball in the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/5/2013 — Eric Hosmer

    The Kansas City Royals have been one of the hottest teams in baseball since the All-Star break.  They entered Monday having won 11 of their last 12 games, and, led by a huge offensive outburst from Eric Hosmer, they would continue their winning ways at home against the lowly Minnesota Twins. Hosmer stepped to the […]
