MLB Scoreboard. Only four games on the schedule last night. Washington’s Ryan Zimmerman extended his hitting streak to 29 games but the Nationals still fell to the Giants 11-7; the Indians beat the White Sox 9-4; the bullpen blew it for Johan Santana as the Mets lost to the Braves 8-3; and Cincinatti pounded Arizona 13-5.

Beer bongs would have been much more appropriate. [MSNBC]
