by on May.17, 2010 @ 2:04 pm, under MLB

Games from the 16th:

Angels 4 - Athletics 0
Hideki Matsui was the starting DH and batted sixth.  He went 1-for-3: infield RBI single, ground out to second, ground out to first.

Rays 2 - Mariners 1
Ichiro Suzuki started in right and batted first.  He went 0-for-4: ground out to second, ground out to second, fly out to left, strikeout swinging.  Ichiro's consecutive multi-hit game ended at 7.

Marlins 10 - Mets 8
Hisanori Takahashi entered the game in the 3rd and gave up 2 runs over 3 innings of work.  He also gave up his first MLB home run of his career.  Final line: 3 IP, 16 BF, 4 H, 4 SO, 4 BB (2 IBB), 2 R, 2 ER.

Seems Takahashi's next outing might be as a starter.

Cuba 4 - Pirates 3
Kosuke Fukudome started in right and batted first.  He went 1-for-5: ground out to the pitcher, fly out to first, ground out to first, single to right, ground out to the pitcher.

Akinori Iwamura did not play due to tightness in his right hamstring.  Seems he tweaked the hamstring while running out a double play during his last AB on the 15th.

Giants 4 - Astros 3
Kazuo Matsui entered the game in the 9th with runners on first and third and 2 out and struck out.

Kei Igawa started a triple-A game against the Charlotte Knights on the 16th and gave up 2 runs (both earned) over 4 innings of work.  Final line: 4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO.
