Games from the 6th:
Ichiro has now hit safely in 10 straight games.
Hideki Matsui was the starting DH and batted fifth. He went 2-for-5: fly out to center, strikeout swinging, solo homer, single to left, ground out to first.
The home run was Matsui's 150th of his MLB career (and 9th of the current season).
Orioles 4 - Red Sox 3
Hideki Okajima entered the game in the 10th and surrendered a walk-off RBI single in the 11th. Final line: 1.1 IP, 7 BF, 1 H, 0 SO, 2 BB, 1 R, 1 ER. Okajima suffered his second loss of the season and is now 2-2.
Fukudome also threw out a runner at third in the bottom of the 1st.
Mets 7 - Marlins 6
Hisanori Takahashi started the game and gave up 5 runs over 5.1 innings of work. He also surrendered two homers. Final line: 5.1 IP, 24 BF, 6 H, 5 SO, 2 BB, 5 R, 5 ER. Takahashi was not involved in the final decision.
Ryota Igarashi entered the game in the 7th and gave up a run over an inning of work. Final line: 1.0 IP, 6 BF, 1 H, 0 SO, 2 BB, 1 R, 1 ER.
Seems Kenshin Kawakami will continue to pitch out of the starting rotation, at least for the time being. (via Nikkan Sports)
Koji Uehara played some catch (at a distance of about 60 feet) for the first time in about 2 weeks on the 5th.
