Around the league on Tuesday night

We're in a sort of "calm before the storm" period in baseball right now, with the trade deadline being less than 48 hours away. Which teams go for broke? Which teams throw in the towel? The Angels have already acquired Mark Teixeira, showing they're serious about winning it all this year. How will your team end up? Stay tuned...

For now, lets recap Tuesday night's Bad Baseball action.

The Cardinals scored five runs in the top of the 9th inning to beat the Braves. It was an odd stat line, though. Only one of the runs was earned. Closer Mike Gonzalez allowed the run on two hits and three walks, recording two outs . . . The Yankees rallied late against the Orioles, scoring three runs in the bottom of the 9th against Baltimore closer George Sherrill, but it was too late. Sherrill allowed three runs on three hits and a walk . . . The Mariners and Rangers combined for 21 runs and 33 hits. The teams exchanged two run rallies in each half of the ninth, but it was the Rangers' half that ended things. J.J. Putz was the losing pitcher, allowing two runs on three hits, recording only one out. Not that C.J. Wilson's win for Texas was impressive; he allowed a run on two hits.
