Games from the 19th:

Angels 2 - Tigers 0
Hideki Matsui was the starting DH and batted fourth.  He went 0-for-2: strikeout looking, fly out to left, walk.

Ichiro Suzuki started in right and batted first.  He went 2-for-4: double to left, walk, fly out to left, single to left, fly out to center.  Ichiro extends his hitting streak to 5 games.

Mets 6 - Cubs 1
Kosuke Fukudome entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the 9th, with runners on first and second and 2 out, and struck out looking.

Neither Ryota Igarashi nor Hisanori Takahashi had appearances for the Mets.


Koji Uehara tossed 30 pitches to 6 batters during a simulated / practice game-type setting on the 19th and allowed one could-be hit.  He told reporters that he still felt some anxiety about re-injuring himself while pitching.
