It was an eventful night in MLB last night. We saw a pair of three homer game, and a trio of two homer games as well. The worst offender? That would be Camden Yards, where the Nationals and Orioles combined for eight homers in Baltimore's 9-6 win. A close second would be Philadelphia, where five of the night's seven runs came on solo homers.

Game of the Night: Padres 3, Mariners 2 (ten innings). This game was deadlocked at one run apiece when Jason Bay homered in the ninth off of San Diego closer Huston Street to give Seattle a 2-1 lead. In the bottom of the ninth, the typically reliable Tom Wilhelmsen put the first three hitters he faced on base before allowing a game-tying sac fly to Kyle Blanks, but got out of the inning without any more harm. In the bottom of the tenth, Yoervis Medina somehow fared worse than Wilhelmsen, allowing an infield single and a single before intentionally walking Chase Headley to load the bases for Will Venable, who hit a ball that deflected off of Kendrys Morales' glove to give the Padres the win.no comments
