Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols hit his 500th career home run Tuesday night in Washington when he connected off Nationals right-hander Taylor Jordan and it barely registered on the national consciousness. Pujols’ feat didn’t make the front sports page of many newspapers, and received modest television attention. Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Kyle Lohse, who was a teammate of Pujols with the St. Louis Cardinals, found that odd. Pujols became the 11th slugger to join the 500 Home Run Club since 1999, when just 15 players had reached the milestone.

There’s something fitting about Theo Epstein declaring that “losing sucks” on the 100th anniversary of the day Wrigley Field opened its doors, because losing is all the Cubs have done at Wrigley. As promised, Carlos Gomez appeals the suspension — a three-game ban — he receives for his part in Sunday’s Brewers-Pirates brawl. Also appealing are the Pirates’ Travis Snider, who got two games, and teammate Russell Martin, who got one. Milwaukee’s Martin Maldonado, however, immediately begins serving his five-gamer.

PITTSBURGH — Johnny Cueto didn’t drop the ball this time at PNC Park. The Reds right-hander checked the Pirates on three hits as he became the first Cincinnati pitcher since 1977 to pitch consecutive complete-game shutouts in a 4-1 victory over Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. McCutchen had two of the Pirates’ three hits. Last Wednesday at Cincinnati, Cueto shut out the Pirates on three hits and struck out a career-high 12.

LOS ANGELES — Pitcher Cliff Lee recovered from two frustrating outings to deliver his most dominant performance of the season. Lee and pitcher Jeff Manship combined on a four-hit shutout to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night in front of 37,715 at Dodger Stadium. “The way Cliff was going,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said, “four runs felt like 10.” In his past two starts, Lee allowed a total of four earned runs and 19 hits in 15 innings of losses to the Milwaukee Brewers and Atlanta Braves.

The Brewers center fielder was ejected along with Pittsburgh outfielder Travis Snider and Milwaukee bench coach Jerry Narron after a shouting match escalated into a brawl during the third inning of the Brewers’ win Sunday.

Yet those were hardly the big blows that attracted all the attention Sunday in the Brewers’ 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez, Pirates outfielder Travis Snider and Milwaukee bench coach Jerry Narron were ejected after a shouting match quickly escalated into a punch-filled brawl in the third. ”I was just doing my job.” The problems started when Gomez paused at the plate and flipped his bat to watch his two-out drive off Pirates starter Gerrit Cole.

In 17 seasons, those were his only NL appearances until he joined the New York Mets this winter. We’ve missed out on so many great years and so many great memories of Bartolo doing what Bartolo does best — entertaining us unintentionally through his awkwardness at the plate.
Oh well, at least we have the here and now, and so far it looks like Colon is prepared to make up for lost time.
Take, for example, his approach on Saturday night against the Atlanta Braves. Colon, who’s swings are ferocious and intense, yet aimless and fruitless, went for the downs on multiple swings against right-hander Ervin Santana. Perhaps he was looking to do like Martin Maldonado of the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night and hit the cover off the baseball — literally . Perhaps he was simply looking for career home No. 1.
Whatever the case, Santana figured out what Colon was doing after just one pitch. On the second pitch, he threw a beautiful slider at 83 mph and nearly spun Colon into the dirt. Colon was prepared to come out of his cleats as he saw the ball hanging up there, then he literally spun right out of his helmet as it disappeared.
