Ibanez, the 41-year-old veteran who is almost as old as Trout (22) and Harper (21) combined, delivered a three-run pinch hit double in the eighth inning. It broke a 1-1 tie and gave the visiting Los Angeles Angels a 4-2 win over the Washington Nationals, who were able to tack on one run in the ninth, but no more.
''These guys make me feel young,'' Ibanez said. ''And I have five kids at home. They're 12 and under, and I'm the biggest kid in the house, really. I feel right at home around these guys who are 22, 24, 25 years old. They definitely keep you young.''
As for the young guys in the game, Trout was 2-for-5 in the Angels win, while Harper was 0-for-3 with a walk. Perhaps they'll be bigger factors Tuesday when Tyler Skaggs pitches for the Angels against Taylor Jordan for the Nats.
EVAN GATTIS BAILS OUT CRAIG KIMBREL IN BRAVES WIN: Usually, when the Atlanta Braves bring Craig Kimbrel out of the bullpen with a lead, there's a pretty good chance they're going to win. They did Monday night — beating the Miami Marlins 4-2 — but the victory had a little more drama than Braves fans expected.
Kimbrel, in his second straight shaky outing, blew a save, giving up the tying run and sending the game into extra innings. Luckily for Kimbrel, Evan Gattis is on his team, a guy who can hit the baseball very, very far. That's what Gattis did in the 10th inning, knocking a two-run, walk-off homer.
Much earlier in the game, Julio Teheran turned in another good start for Atlanta, because that's all Braves pitchers seem to do these days. Teheran pitched seven innings, striking out eight and giving up one run on five hits.
The Dodgers managed four hits against Lee, but only one after the second inning. Lee retired 15 in a row starting in the third. Meanwhile, Carlos Ruiz had four RBIs and Ryan Howard hit a two-run homer to give Philly most of its offense.
TRAVIS WOOD DOES IT ALL: The Chicago Cubs struck first in their series with the Arizona Diamondbacks, the two teams with the fewest wins in MLB. The Cubs beat the D-backs 5-1, earning their sixth win of the season. Much of it was because of starting pitcher Travis Wood.
Not only did Wood pitch seven strong innings, giving up one run on six hits with nine Ks to earn his first win of the season, but Wood was also potent at the plate. He hit a two-run homer in the second inning, then knocked an RBI double in the fourth.
