MOURNED
Josh Hancock, a relief pitcher who helped the team win the World Series last season, died early Sunday when his sport utility vehicle slammed into the back of a tow truck, bringing back memories of Darryl Kile's death in June 2002. The Cardinals postponed their home game Sunday night against the Chicago Cubs.

MARATHON
Brady Clark hit a go-ahead double in the 17th inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Diego Padres 5-4 on Sunday in the longest game in Petco Park's four-year history. It also was the longest game in the major leagues this season. Pittsburgh beat Houston 4-3 in 16 innings Wednesday, a game that lasted 4 hours, 48 minutes. The Dodgers-Padres game took 4:55.

RARITY
Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki had an unassisted triple play in the seventh inning of the Rockies' 9-7 win over Atlanta on Sunday. After Kelly Johnson and Edgar Renteria reached on singles, Tulowitzki caught Chipper Jones' line drive behind second base. Tulowitzki stepped on the bag to double up Johnson and tagged Renteria for the third out. It was the 13th unassisted triple play in major league history and the first since 2003.

FOILED
Jamie Moyer took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning and combined with two relievers for a four-hitter in the Philadelphia Phillies' 6-1 win over Florida on Sunday. ...

NICE COMPANY
With a two-run shot in the eight inning of a 7-4 win over New York, Boston's Manny Ramirez became only the fifth player to hit 50 career homers against the Yankees, joining Jimmie Foxx (70), Ted Williams (62), Hank Greenberg (53) and Carl Yastrzemski (52).

STREAKING
The Yankees' Derek Jeter homered in a 7-4 loss to Boston, extending his hitting streak to 17 games. ... Arizona topped San Francisco 5-4 to earn their fifth straight victory following a five-game skid.

SNAPPED
Boston's Mike Lowell went 0-for-2 in a 7-4 win over New York, ending his 14-game hitting streak. The Yankees' Bobby Abreu hit an eighth-inning single to end an 0-for-19 slide, the longest of his major league career. ... Philadelphia's Aaron Rowand went 0-for-3 in a 6-1 win over Florida, halting his career-high hitting streak at 16. ... Seattle DH Jose Vidro saw his 12-game hitting streak end in a 5-1 win over the Royals.

SPEAKING
``I was blowing and yelling for it to go. Vance Wilson told me he was in the bullpen trying to push the fence closer to home.'' - Detroit's Brandon Inge, on his walkoff homer in the Tigers' 4-3 win over Minnesota.
