Aaron Miles
In the bottom of the ninth inning, Aaron Miles played unlikely hero as he hit a walk-off grand slam to help his St. Louis Cardinals defeat the San Diego Padres.

“That’s a feeling I wasn’t sure I was going to get to experience, that walk-off homer,” Miles said. “I’ve never done it before, not in the minor leagues or on any field. That’s a great feeling.”

Vincente Padilla
Scott Baker did all that he could do for his team on Sunday, but the Minnesota Twins offense was simply not up to the task of Vincente Padilla and the Texas Rangers. Padilla, Eddie Guardado, and closer C.J Wilson combined for a nine inning shutout. The game’s sole run came in the 6th inning, when rookie catcher Taylor Teagarden hit a solo home run.

“What he did today is what he’s capable of,” Rangers skipper Ron Washington said of his starter Padilla. “It was encouraging for the team because we’ve been struggling to get some things going. He gave us all a shot in the arm.”

John Baker homers
On Saturday afternoon the Florida Marlins defeated the Florida Marlins by a score of 9-5. The Fish jumped on Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick early and often; Kendrick would wind up going 4.1 innings, giving up 10 hits and 7 earned runs.

“It does resemble a softball game a little bit,” said Cody Ross. “We’ve got some guys going up there taking healthy hacks, and the Phillies are the same way. The game is never over.”

Rich Aurilia hits a 2 run single
The San Francisco Giants had an offensive explosion on Sunday, scoring 11 runs at the expense of the Oakland A’s. Joe Blanton got the start for Oakland, and didn’t fare well at all. He was only able to pitch through 4 laborious innings (He’d thrown 78 pitches), and was shelled for eight hits and seven earned runs. This was a continuation of a very poor season for Blanton, as he’s now 4-11.

“It’s kind of hard not to be frustrated,” Blanton said. “It was just another standard day for me. I felt well going out but the numbers looked like crap by the end of the day. It’s like it’s over before you know it. That’s how it’s been this season for me.”

Oliver Perez delivered on Sunday
The highly marketed subway series took place this weekend, with both the New York Mets and the New York Yankees winning two games. Today, the Mets were able to pull out a 3-1 victory, thanks to a tremendous performance from starter Oliver Perez. Perez went seven innings, surrendering just one run and striking out eight.

“If we can get Ollie to be consistent, which has been the dilemma for him his whole career, we will have an excellent pitcher, no question,” Mets manager Jerry Manuel said.

Ricky Nolasco
The Florida Marlins came right back from the three game sweep at the hands of the Tampa Bay Rays by beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-1. Ricky Nolasco got the start for Florida, and went eight innings, with nine strikeouts. Nolasco’s impressive effort resulted in his eighth victory of the year, and Florida’s 41st.

“That was the most important thing today was to snap that losing streak and get on the right page again,” Nolasco said. “We had a rough stretch of games there.”

Beltran after the win
Carlos Beltran hit his 11th home run of the year, and Mike Pelfrey pitched 5 2/3 innings of 1 run baseball to hand the Mets their 37th victory of the season, putting them at an even .500. After the game, Mets manager Jerry Manuel was asked if the team was going in the right direction.

“We still have to prove we can be consistent and we still have to show we can be good at home,” Manuel said. “The jury is out. We have three big games with Seattle and then the Yankees. I would like to see us more consistent offensively before I make that statement.”

Derek Jeter, turning the double play

“We wanted this one badly, but it’s tough to sweep these guys,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said.
