Chris Heisley representing Team USA

The Yankees & Reds split a doubleheader on Wednesday with the Yankees winning the first game 4-2 & the Reds avoiding the sweep by taking the nightcap 10-2. The Game 1 heroes for the Yankees were SP Freddy Garcia who evened his record at 6-6 & went 7 innings and allowed 0 ERs, 7 hits, a walk & 4 Ks. C Jorge Posada broke a 2-2 tie with a 2-run homer. It was his first homer since 4/23. In Game 2 Johnny Cueto went 7 innings and allowed a run on just 2 hits with 3 walks & 6 Ks. Chris Heisley took advantage of the playing time and hit 3 homers and drove in 5 runs. It was his first career multi-homer game. It was also the first time the Yankees have given up a 3 homer game to anyone in interleague play. The last player to hit 3 homers in a game against the Yankees was Kevin Millar in 2004. The Reds are 2-7 against the AL so far this season.

A DH has to keep himself busy while not playing the field...

The Red Sox lost to the Padres 5-4 and their lead in the AL East over the Yankees shrunk to 1 game.  The win broke a 6 game losing streak for San Diego.  Former Padre 1B A-Gone went 1-5 with an RBI..he now leads the major leagues with 68.  Big Papi went 0-5 but stole a base!  Wish we had footage of that.  It was his first one since 2008 or something like that.

Stay tuned to the end of the post for an update from our brand new reporter in the field.

INJURY NEWS

Cardinals 1B Albert Pujols is on the DL with a fractured forearm.  He is rumored to miss anywhere between 4 & 7 weeks.  Might as well get a weatherman to predict his return date.

Reds SP Johnny Cueto had his start skipped Monday night due to a stiff neck and should start one of the games on Wednesday.

Red Sox SP Josh Beckett missed his start on Tuesday night due to an illness.  They are hoping he can return for his next scheduled start on Saturday.

Astros OF Hunter Pence missed Tuesday’s game as well with an elbow injury.

Rangers C Yorvit Torreabla missed Monday & Tuesday’s games due to dehydration.

Orioles SP Jake Arrieta will possibly have his next turn in the rotation skipped.

Brewers SP Shaun Marcum will start Wednesday, and White Sox SP Jake Peavy will come off the DL & start Wednesday as well.

Hey it is 4/4 today. Paying homage to The Man...just don't let him near the Queen!!

So I’ve been telling you all along not to panic…it’s only the first week of the season. Hitters are very streaky. What about pitchers you ask? I wouldn’t overreact over pitching debuts either. But what you can do is target the owners that do.  Look for someone in your league with a trigger finger like Raylan Givens and make your move.  Here’s some guys to target…
