Maybe I'm hexing them...but the Colorado Rockies are up 7-0 in the bottom of the 8th against the A's. If they can keep Oakland from scoring at least 7 in the top of the 9th, the Rangers will move back into a tie for first place in the A.L. West.
In other excitement...the Phil Nevin for MVP bandwagon continues to roll, with Nevin hitting yet another homer today. And Juan Pierre had 3 more RBIs, meaning that his pursuit of Enzo Hernandez is probably over.
And finally, Alfonso Soriano is cooling down...with an 0-fer today, he is 7 for his last 46, although he continues to sport an impressive 930 OPS.
