Toronto Blue Jays defeat LA Angels 7-5. Things were starting to go well for Angels starter Ervin Santana. He pitched a complete-game one-hitter against the Diamondbacks on the 16th and gave up only two earned runs in eight innings against the Dodgers in his previous start.

Well that nice little streak came to an abrupt end in the fourth inning. With the Angels leading 2-0, Edwin Encarnacion and Yunel Escobar hit RBI singles to tie the game. After Escobar's single, Rajai Davis doubled which set the tables for Adam Lind who belted a homer to centerfield.

It looked like John Hester was going to be the hero tying the game on a "big fly" in the seventh inning. But Jordan Walden gave a run back in the bottom half of the inning and Hisanori Takahashi gave up another in the eighth inning.

NY Mets defeat LA Dodgers 9-0. It just keeps getting worse for the Dodgers. Shutout for the fourth time in the last five days, the All Star Break seems like an eternity.

You Can't Spell "Lamar Odom" without "LA". Perhaps making Ryan Seacrest happy, Lamar Odom is back in Los Angeles. The Clippers were part of the four-team trade that brought Lamar to the Clippers from Dallas. The Clippers sent Mo Williams to Utah and something or other was involved with the Houston Rockets. It's either too confusing or too irrelevant for me to really think about it, so here's the official press release.
