Monday night quick hits

Lots of Bad Baseball from Monday night, let's jump right in.

The Brewers scored three runs in the top of the 10th inning to beat the Cardinals. Ryan Franklin was the losing pitcher for the Birds, allowing all four runs on four hits.

The Padres managed to scrape some offense together for three runs in the ninth to hand Reds closer Francisco Cordero his sixth blown save of the season. Cordero allowed the runs on two hits and three walks.

The Pirates rallied for nine runs in the ninth inning in their come-from-behind win against the Astros. Houston's Jose Valverde was the worst of a bad bunch, allowing six runs on five hits. He was credited with his sixth blown save.

The Tigers mauled the Royals, scoring a total 19 runs on 18 hits, including 10 runs in the 8th inning. Royals reliever Jimmy Gobble allowed all 10 of those runs on seven hits and four walks.

And finally, in a good, old-fashioned Coors Field slugfest, the Dodgers and Rockies combined for 26 runs and 38 hits, with the Dodgers winning 16-10. Rockies starter Kip Wells recorded just one out in the first inning, allowing seven runs on seven hits and a walk. Not a good day for him.
