Sanchez gets himself into, out of jam in 6th

The bottom of the sixth inning was the Anibal Sanchez show. But not in the way you'd think. It was a strange show, more like Twin Peaks. When the credits rolled, it was still a scoreless game.

The inning began with a Sanchez error, putting Ichiro Suzuki on first, where he was likely to start some mayhem. Robinson Cano grounded back to Sanchez for the second out, but it wasn't quite so simple; Sanchez made a 45-foot horseshoe toss that just clipped Cano, who wasn't running especially hard. If Cano was running hard, does he make it?


Dunno. Probably not. Probably not the best time to saunter through the bag, though.

After intentionally walking Raul Ibanez, the threat ended with Jhonny Peralta making a nice play on a grounder from Russell Martin. Six innings down, still no runs. Sanchez is at 89 pitches for the day, so he'll probably get a couple more innings.

And then ... probably not Valverde time. But it could be! That'd be hilarious, at least.
