Colorado Rockies defeat LA Dodgers 3-0. How pathetic are the Dodgers? The only fireworks they displayed was in the bottom of the eighth inning when Matt Kemp and Rockie's catcher Yorvit Torrealba decided to go bush league and shove each other after getting tangled up after a strike three ball landed on the ground. The benches cleared, and both players got ejected and are likely to receive suspensions. Other than that it was a snoozer of a game. The Dodgers could not figure out Rockie's starter Jeff Francis despite only having one win and an ERA over six.

LA Angels defeat Seattle Mariners 5-4. Angel's starter Joe Saunders is the first pitcher in the American League to notch nine wins. He got an early show of offensive support with the Angels scoring five runs by the fourth inning chasing Mariner's starter Erik Bedard out of the game. What the offense giveth, the defense taketh away. Although Saunders gave up four runs, three of them came from two errors made by the normally airtight Angel's defense. But the bullpen did their job and got Saunders the win.
