The Indians beat the Twins7-3 on Saturday night. OK, there's nothing too ordinary about that...except for the winning pitcher for Cleveland: former Rays and Angels starter Scott Kazmir. Kazmir legitimately pitched well on Saturday, and his win was his first in three tries this season. Perhaps more importantly, it was his first win since September 19, 2010 with the Angels (ironically, against the Rays). Now, two and a half years later, Kazmir is back in the win column after a depressing fall from grace. PIC OF THE DAY Cheese Chester rushes past Teddy Roosevelt in a dual pierogi/presidents race during the Nationals-Pirates game in Pittsburgh. (Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports) Game of the Night: Giants 10, Dodgers 9 (ten innings). To call this game "crazy" would probably be an understatement. The Giants led 5-0 after the second, and 6-1 after the fourth, but Los Angeles proceeded to score seven runs in the fifth to jump ahead 8-6. The Giants made it 8-7 on an Andres Torres homer in the bottom of the inning, and tied the game after Buster Posey scored on a wild pitch in the sixth. The teams traded runs in the seventh, and the game went into extra innings. A Giants catcher ended up being the hero again, and it wasn't Posey - no, it was Quillermo Quiroz, who hit a walkoff homer to left off of Brandon League to give the Giants their second walkoff win in as many nights. Pitching Lines of the Night: Jose Fernandez tore through the Phillies in a 2-0 Marlins win, allowing one hit and one walk in seven shutout innings while striking out nine and setting down 17 in a row after a first inning single by Freddy Galvis. Philadelphia didn't have a runner get to second base all night, by the way. In a losing effort for the Phillies, Cole Hamels allowed two runs on four hits in eight innings, striking out six with no walks. Jeremy Guthrie threw a complete game shutout for the Royals in their 2-0 win over the White Sox, allowing four hits and striking out three with one walk. Phil Hughes dominated the A's in a 4-2 Yankees win, pitching eight shutout frames while giving up four hits, walking two and striking out nine. Max Scherzer pitched great for the Tigers in their blistering 17-2 win in Houston, ceding just one run on three hits in eight innings, punching out eight and walking two.  Hitting Lines of the Night: Reigning AL MVP Miguel Cabrera went 4/4 with three runs, six RBI, a walk, and two homers to power the Tigers offense in Houston, while Torii Hunter supported him by going 4/5 with three runs, two RBI, a walk, a double, and a stolen base. In Seattle's 8-1 win in Toronto, Michael Saunders (a Canadian, by the way) went 3/5 with three RBI, a double, and two homers. In the Cubs' 6-4 loss to the Reds, Alfonso Soriano went 2/3 with a walk and a pair of two-run homers. Jason Kipnis gave Kazmir all the offensive support he needed in Cleveland, going 3/4 with two runs, two RBI, a triple, a homer, and a stolen base. Other Games: The Cardinals edged the Brewers 7-6. The Orioles slipped by the Angels 5-4 in ten innings. The Nationals rallied late to beat the Pirates 5-4. The Rockies thumped David Price and the Rays 9-3. The Rangers beat the Red Sox 5-1. The Diamondbacks brutalized the Padres 8-1. The Braves and Mets were rained out. Today's Games: Andy Pettitte gets the nod for the Yankees against the A's. Joe Saunders takes on Brandon Morrow in Toronto. Tim Hudson and Jon Niese will battle in Atlanta. Gio Gonzalez takes on Wandy Rodriguez in Pittsburgh. Jaime Garcia gets the nod for the Cardinals in Milwaukee. Mat Latos takes on Edwin Jackson in Chicago. Jon Lester and Yu Darvish will duel in Texas. Roy Halladay gets the start for the Phillies against the Marlins. Jason Hammel starts for the Orioles in Anaheim. Justin Verlander will start for the Tigers in Houston (that could be an ugly one, folks). Alex Cobb and the Rays take on the returning Jhoulys Chacin of the Rockies. Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers will take on Matt Cain and the Giants. National TV: Mets-Braves (1:30, TBS), Dodgers-Giants (8:00. ESPN) Enjoy your day of baseball, everyone. [follow]
