C – A.J. Pierzynski, Chicago White Sox (.286 avg, 16 hrs, 49 rbis)
The backstop for the squad has had a solid year on the South Side. Pierzynski has the most home runs and runs batted in of any catcher in the game this season. He also calls great games for a very good pitching staff.
1B- Adam LaRoche, Washington Nationals (.252 avg, 15 hrs, 53 rbi’s)
After bouncing around the last few years, LaRoche has found a home in D.C. He is tied for fourth in rbi’s and 3rd in home runs at his position and has played a very good defensive first base. His offensive production is part of the reason the Nationals will be leading the NL East at the break.
Matt Cain made Giants history Wednesday night. He became the first Giants pitcher to throw a perfect game as he baffled the Astros hitters all night. Cain struck out 14 batters on 125 pitches to pick up his 8th win of the season. With Tim Lincecum struggling this season, Cain has made his case as the new Giants ace. The last Giant to thrown a no-hitter was Jonathan Sanchez against the San Diego Padres on July 10, 2009. Cain’s gem was the 22nd perfect game in MLB history.
