Thumbs up

Desmond Jennings, Rays: He became the first center fielder since Andy Van Slyke in 1992 to complete an unassisted double play by tagging first base. There have been just 22 unassisted DPs by outfielders since 1951.

Thumbs down

Jason Heyward, Braves: Already mired with the lowest batting average in the National League at .121 (7 for 58), Heyward underwent an emergency appendectomy Monday and landed on the DL.

Ex-Mariner of the week

Mike Carp, Red Sox: Carp has made the most of limited playing time, going 7 for 16 (.438) with four doubles and a triple entering the weekend.


"Somebody was talking about Phil Jackson the other day. We need to call him up, have him come in here and burn some sage or something. We're not very feng shui right now." — Jayson Werth on the Nationals' struggles.
