Torii Hunter took a Joe Nathan fastball off his left hand in the top of the 10th inning of Wednesday's 11-10 walk-off loss to the Rangers. Asked how he felt postgame, Hunter said: "Not good. It's swollen."
Albert Pujols hit two homers for the second straight game on Wednesday, putting his total for the year at 22. It marked the first time in his career that he has had multihomer efforts in consecutive regular-season games. With 467 career homers, he has sole possession of 31st place on the all-time list.
With four RBIs on Wednesday, Pujols upped his career total to 1,400, making him just the fourth player in history to reach that mark in his first 12 seasons. Joe DiMaggio, Al Simmons and Lou Gehrig were the others.
