Thursday night quick hits
In New York, Billy Wagner blew his 3rd save in as many days for the Mets. He allowed 2 runs on 2 walks and 2 hits to the Diamondbacks . . . Another loss for Atlanta's bullpen; this time it was Manny Acosta, who allowed a run on two walks and a hit in extra innings to lose to the Cubs. But it wasn't before Blaine Boyer blew his chance for a save earlier in the game. It'll be a long summer for the Braves if they can't turn things around soon . . . Hiroki Kuroda didn't last long in his start for the Dodgers. He went 2.1 innings, allowing 6 runs on 5 hits and 4 walks to the Padres . . . Livan Hernandez probably should've stayed in bed. The Twins starter was rocked by the Indians, getting pounded for 7 runs on 12 hits in just 3 innings of work.
