Thursday saw some real all-star performances. As mentioned earlier, Frank Thomas hit his 500th home run in the first inning, but the Toronto Blue Jays still lost to a Twins rally, 5-8. This was largely due to a Torii Hunter who had 2 home runs and drove in 3 RBIs in 4 at-bats.

Fantasy Baseball NewsThe Phillies had a good day thanks to the efforts of Chase Utley. While they narrowly defeated the Reds, 8 to 7, Utley went 3 for 5 with 2 home runs, 4 RBIs, and capped it off with a stolen base. Jimmy Rollins also did his part for the Phillies, going 4 of 6 with 2 RBIs and a stolen base. Rollins drove in the winning run in the 10th inning.

The Mets and Cardinals game for Thursday was postponed due to rain. I guess Texas isn't the only state getting drenched at the moment.

Craig Biggio of the Astros reached the 3000 hit plateau in Thursday's game against the Colorado Rockies. Carlos Lee added a grand slam off Brian Fuentes in the bottom of the 11th to give the Astros an 8-5 win.

Randy Johnson made his return to the Arizona Diamondbacks after a stint on the disabled list, but he wasn't in there for long. Dodgers' Russell Martin his a two-run homer off of the Big Unit in the first, and James Loney and Matt Kemp drove in runs in the 3rd to end Johnson's night early. In all, the 43-year-old lefty struck out two batters and allowed 4 runs and 6 hits in only 3 innings of work. He also walked two and nailed Luis Gonzalez in the thigh.

Before we look back at yesterday's action, I wanted to take a moment and recognize an impressive achievement by Frank Thomas which happened earlier today. Batting against Minnesota's Carlos Silva, Thomas jacked a three-run homer to boost him to the 500 home run career mark.

The Dodgers really disappointed on Wednesday, going 0-for-13 with runners in scoring position.

Pitcher Kenny Rogers had his Wednesday game against the Texas Rangers postponed due to rain. If you have any fantasy players scheduled to play in Arlington the next week or so, you might want to look elsewhere. They're having some freakishly rainy weather down there, and any game is a possible last minute scratch.

41-year-old Mets pitcher Tom Glavine showed that he still has some stuff left on Wednesday, as he pitched six innings against the St. Louis Cardinals and only gave up one hit. The game was shortened due to rain, but the Mets won 2-0.

The Oakland Athletics beat the Indians 13-7 on Wednesday night, led by a career-high five RBIs from Jack Cust and four hits from Shannon Stewart. The A's snapped a 5-game losing streak with the win.

Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka allowed only one run and three hits in eight innings of work for Boston. He had one walk and eight strike outs. In five starts in the month of June, Matsuzaka has allowed only six total runs. Start him if you can.
