Thursday night recap

Lots of Bad Baseball action from around the league to get to, so lets jump right in.

In Detroit, Tigers closer Todd Jones blew a save against the Twins when he allowed two runs on three hits in the 9th inning. The Twins would go on to win in the 11th.

Brandon Morrow blew a save for the Mariners; he allowed two runs on two hits in .2 innings of work against the A's.

The Indians jumped all over Rays reliever Gary Glover in the 8th inning, scoring eight runs and eventually winning. Glover allowed all seven runs, gave up six hits and recorded just two outs.

Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa struggled against the Brewers; he was pounded for nine runs on seven hits in 3.2 innings of work.

Orioles closer George Sherrill blew his sixth save of the season against the Blue Jays; he allowed two runs on three hits, and recorded just two outs. The Jays scored four runs over the final two innings of play in their come-from-behind win.

Lots of offense for both teams in the Angels-Rangers contest. The teams combined for 21 runs and 32 hits, with the Angels winning 11-10. Both starters struggled; Scott Feldman allowed eight runs on six hits and five walks for Texas while John Lackey allowed six runs for Anaheim, which was actually impressive considering he also gave up 15 hits.

Interleague play is now officially over, as the Pirates and Yankees made up a postponed game from earlier in the season. The Pirates won, for anyone who cares.
