Games from the 30th:
Twins 5 - Mariners 3
Ichiro Suzuki started in right and batted first. He went 1-for-5: fly out to center, ground out to short, single to left, strikeout swinging, ground out to second. Ichiro has now hit safely in three straight games.
Royals 7 - Orioles 5
Koji Uehara entered the game in the 8th with a runner on third and 2 outs and the Orioles up, 5-4. He retired the one batter he faced on a fly out to left. Final line: 0.1 IP, 1 BF, 0 H, 0 SO, 0 BB, 0 R, 0 ER.
Kazuo Matsui went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout against the triple-A Sacramento River Cats on the 30th. He started at short and batted second.
Akinori Iwamura apparently suffered a concussion when he ran into a player when running out an infield hit on the 28th. From the Post-Gazette:
Indianapolis second baseman Aki Iwamura, who spent most of this season with the Pirates, was hospitalized and diagnosed with a concussion after a baserunning collision Wednesday. He ran into an infielder covering first base in the first inning of the team's 7-5 victory in Syracuse, N.Y. A CT scan and other tests came back negative, Stark said, but Iwamura will be reevaluated later in the week.
It seems Iwamura will be re-evaluated on 8/1 with hopes of returning to action as early as 8/3.
