In a fitting conclusion to interleague play, both the American and National League Players of the Day came out of the same game, Kansas City's 16-8 pasting of Colorado.
|Gonzalez: 6 RBI|
Gonzalez, or CarGo, as he has become known, cleared the bases with a 5th inning double, driving in three runs, then followed up with a three run homer (his 13th) in the very next inning.
|Cabrera: 5 RBI|
Adding to three RBI by Jeff Francoeur, and four by Eric Hosmer, Cabrera topped them both by going 4-for-5, with a single, double, two home runs, five RBI and four runs. About all Cabrera didn't do for the Rockies was climb up into the stands and hawk peanuts.
JETER WATCH BACK ON: Completing his untimely stint on the DL, Derek Jeter is expected to be batting leadoff for the Yankees when they open a three-game series in Cleveland on Monday, needing just six hits to become the 28th player in baseball history to record 3000 hits.
The plan is for Jeter to get a few raps in Cleveland, but reach his mark during a four-game set with Tampa Bay back in the Bronx, beginning Thursday. While the fans in New York would love nothing more than to see their favorite son get his 3000th hit in Yankee Stadium, Jeter getting six hits in a seven-game span sounds like a no-brainer, unless "El Capitan" has completely lost his swing.
FINAL INTERLEAGUE TALLY: By winning 10 of the 14 games played on Saturday, the American League broke the tie at 119 wins apiece, finally ending the interleague era for the season with the AL on top 129-123.
