Caught Looking, 8/4: Nobody touch Adrian Beltre's head

David Price Shines in Blue Jays Debut


By JOHN DORN

Hitting for the cycle is rare, but it can tend to be pretty fluky on a player-to-player basis. Doing it three times isn't fluky.

That's what Adrian Beltre did last night for the Texas Rangers in a 12-9 victory over the Houston Astros. He also accomplished the feat in 2008 and 2012.

If you're familiar with Beltre's career, you know that the man loathes being patted on the head. What's recognized as a gesture of congratulation to some, the 36-year-old may eventually kill somebody over. He's come pretty close in the past.






So what did Beltre's teammates do last night? You guessed it: Risk death by patting Beltre's head!



All in good fun. We think.

Rangers 12, Astros 9.


Around the league
Mets 12, Marlins 1



A day after pulling even with the Washington Nationals for first place in the division, the Mets separated themselves with a blowout victory in Miami. The man to get the ball rolling? Rookie Michael Conforto, who jacked his first MLB home run.


Braves 9, Giants 8





When you walk off with the win, you celebrate accordingly. When you do it in the 12th inning, the party gets even rowdier. After falling behind in the 12th, Adonis Garcia put the Braves on top with a two-run blast.


Blue Jays 5, Twins 1

Must feel pretty good to fan 11 in your @bluejays debut. We’re certainly pleased.

A post shared by Toronto Blue Jays (@bluejays) on






One Blue Jays game under his belt, 11 strikeouts to his ledger. Not a bad debut for David Price, pulling the Jays even with the Minnesota Twins for the second Wild Card spot in the AL.


Rays 5, White Sox 4


Close, Alexei Ramirez. Not quite Jordan-level hops, though.


Mariners 8, Rockies 7


The Rockies scored three in the ninth, but fell one hit short of a massive late-inning comeback against the Mariners. And it made people in Colorado really upset.
