    Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 8, Diamondbacks 1: Three bombs for Juan Uribe and four driven in. What a season for the guy who, in his first two years in Dodger blue, looked lost and, frankly, over.

    May 10, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT

    from @MaxBatBaseball

    It seems Louisville Slugger has a monopoly on the pink labels for Mother’s Day bats permitted by MLB. The Orioles’ Nick Markakis, the Nationals’ Jayson Werth and the Twins’ Trevor Plouffe were among the players informed by the league Friday that they won’t be able to use their custom label MaxBats on Sunday.
