Prior to Sunday's series finale with the red-hot St. Louis Cardinals, Mizuno Brand Ambassador Chad Billingsley was tasked with being the "stopper" for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Billingsley stepped up to the challenge and fired eight scoreless innings against the Redbirds, allowing just two hits and striking out 11 hitters in the process. The Dodgers were unable to score any runs until the bottom of the ninth inning, so Billingsley was left with a no-decision, but this was clearly his best performance of the season.

The Kansas City Royals are off to a 6-3 start in the 2011 season. A great deal of their early success is due to the hot bat of Mizuno Brand Ambassador Billy Butler. He is riding an eight game hit streak, including a 9-for-18 (.500) performance last week, as the Royals went 3-2, including a road series win over the Detroit Tigers. Butler smacked two doubles, hit a home run, and drove in four runs on the week.
