Fantasy Baseball Players of the Day – 4/8

Apr 9, 2008

Tuesday, April 8th
Aubrey Huff was the big hitting star Tuesday.  He went 4 for 4 with 4 runs, a double, a walk, and 4 RBI.  Aaron Hill matched him with a 4 for 4 game, including a two-run HR.  Brian Giles went 4 for 5 with and RBI.  Kevin Youkilis, Ichiro Suzuki, Jose Lopez, Matt Holliday, and Matt Kemp each had three hits.  Bengie Molina smacked a couple HRs.

Jake Westbrook threw a complete game, allowing three runs on 7 hits.  He struck out 4.  Oliver Perez worked 5-2/3 shutout innings for the Mets.  He allowed 3 hits.  His bullpen blew the lead.  He hasn’t allowed a run in 11-2/3 innings this year.  Brian Burres allowed just one run in 6 innings for the surprising Baltimore Orioles.  Diasuke Matsuzaka threw 6-2/3 innings of shutout ball.  He allowed 4 hits and struck out 7.  Brian Bannister allowed 2 runs in 5 innings while striking out 6 Yankees.  Tim Lincecum allowed one run in 6 innings, striking out 7.  Doug Davis’s last start before cancer surgery went well.  He struck out 7 in 6 innings while allowing just 2 runs.  I wish him even more success with his surgery.
