season statsIn the only Major League contest with Jewish participation, Ian Kinsler was 0-for-4 with a walk as the LA Angels (33-28) scored three runs in the eighth to break a 6-6 tie and beat the visiting KC Royals, 9-6.

The game followed a week in which Kinsler hit .429 with 3 HRs (see video below).

That was easy.

MLB held the first two rounds of its annual draft yesterday. Jewish Baseball News will post occasional updates on Jewish draftees. Stay tuned.
