Baseball Recap : August 30

Dodgers 3, Phillies 0
Hiroki Kuroda carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning before Shane Victorino singled with one out, the Phillies' only hit against the Dodgers, who trimmed their deficit in the NL Wild Card race to 5 1/2 games. Wrap >
Rockies 2, Giants 1
The Rockies picked up a game in the NL Wild Card chase thanks to a ninth-inning rally featuring Carlos Gonzalez, who stroked a game-tying RBI triple and then scored the go-ahead run on a Giants error. Wrap >
Rays 6, Blue Jays 2
After Carl Crawford reached on an Aaron Hill error with two outs, Carlos Pena hit a three-run blast in the third that proved to be the difference as Wade Davis and the Rays defeated the Blue Jays in the series opener. Wrap >
Yankees 11, A's 5
A's ace Trevor Cahill saw his gaudy August numbers take a hit in the Bronx, where Mark Teixeira returned from a brief injury absence with authority, missing the cycle by a triple en route to an easy win for the Yankees. Wrap >
Reds 5, Brewers 4, 10 innings
Jay Bruce got things going for the Reds with a first-inning homer off Randy Wolf, and he capped it off with a walk-off single in the 10th off Trevor Hoffman, scoring pinch-runner Brandon Phillips from second base. Wrap >
Astros 3, Cardinals 0
J.A. Happ allowed only two hits -- harmless singles in the first and eighth -- to shut out the team that knocked him out after just one inning in their last meeting. Brett Wallace had an RBI double in his first three-hit game. Wrap >
Braves 9, Mets 3

Rangers 3, Royals 0

White Sox 10, Indians 6
Brent Lillibridge, who committed an error that helped the Tribe score three off Bobby Jenks to force extras, homered to key a four-run 11th as the White Sox won to pull within four games of the Twins in the AL Central. Wrap >
D-backs 7, Padres 2
Joe Saunders gave up two runs four pitches into the game, but kept the Padres' bats quiet over the rest of his eight-inning outing. Mark Reynolds picked up his starter with a pair of two-run blasts and five total RBIs. Wrap >
Angels 5, Mariners 3
Peter Bourjos, Bobby Abreu and Hideki Matsui each went deep in the sixth to snap the Angels' 31-inning scoreless stretch, while Ervin Santana and the Halos' bullpen kept the Mariners at bay in Seattle. Wrap >
Cubs 14, Pirates 2
In Mike Quade's home debut as manager of the Cubs, Carlos Zambrano struck out seven and hit the 21st homer of his career, while Chicago put together a seven-run fourth and four-run fifth on "Andre Dawson Day." Wrap >

*STRASBURG OUT!* (tommy john surgery ahead)

Stephen Strasburg said Friday he was in shock when he learned that he had a significant tear in his ulnar collateral ligament -- an injury that is expected to force to the Nationals right-hander to undergo Tommy John surgery.
Shocked and disappointed are probably the best words to describe the feelings of the Nationals, their fans and everyone else who has enjoyed the phenom's amazing first act this summer.
"It was kind of a shock to me. I really didn't feel anything," Strasburg said during a news conference. "It's good that it happened in a way [now], instead of when we are going to the postseason or getting ready for the World Series.
"It's a new challenge. I want to be the best in everything. Right now, I want to be the best at rehabbing and get back [on the mound]."
Strasburg, who was originally placed on the disabled list because of a flexor strain in his right forearm, had an arthrogram performed on Thursday afternoon to determine if something is seriously wrong, and doctors found ligament damage in the elbow.
He will seek a second opinion from Dr. Lewis Yocum in Southern California before the Nationals make a final decision on surgery, but the club said that procedure is necessary. Strasburg will leave for California on Saturday, with elbow surgery to follow soon thereafter.
Strasburg is expected to be back at 100 percent in 12-18 months.

Roger Clemens Indicted!

 A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted seven-time Cy Young Award winnerRoger Clemens for allegedly lying to Congress about using steroids and growth hormone.
Clemens faces charges of obstruction of Congress, making false statements and perjury. The New York Times first reported the indictment.
The six-count grand jury indictment said that Clemens obstructed a congressional inquiry with 15 statements that he made under oath, including denials that he had ever used steroids or human growth hormone. The indictment alleged that he lied and committed perjury regarding the same matters.

Jacoby Ellsbury Out for season

Jacoby Ellsbury hasn't written off 2010 completely, but it is unlikely he will take another at-bat for the Red Sox this season.
An examination in Southern California with Dr. Lewis Yocum revealed what Ellsbury already suspected -- his left rib area was fractured for the third time this season. The most recent cause was a collision at first base with Rangers right-hander Tommy Hunter on Friday night. The leadoff man went on the disabled list on Saturday and was examined by Yocum on Tuesday.

Derrek Lee to the braves!

Atlanta traded away three prospects to the Chicago Cubs this afternoon in exchange for former All-Star Derek Lee. While Lee has been struggling with injuries of late, he still could help improve a Braves offense that has been stagnant at times this year. Personally I am hopeful to see how this will play out with his back problems, and if the braves do beat the Phillie's in the push for the playoffs, how he will preform in the post-season.

My favorite card

Hey guys I thought this would be a decent thing to post. Most of you have never seen this card so I thought would share it with you guys. As you all know I am a braves fan so naturally my favorite card is of a brave. Not a braves player but a manager, thats right... Bobby Cox!

Sorry about the writing being backwards but it is from 2010 tribute and is numbered 18/75
