Prof: OK, so Scout and I are not Inda, nor will we try to be. But until we can figure out a new recap format and name (out of respect for Inda and her brand, we are retiring “So, What Did I Miss?”), you’re stuck with a tag team recap post. This might be fun; I’m a girl, Scout’s a guy; I’m NL, he’s AL, I’m a little bit country, he’s a little bit rock and roll.
Blue Jays 13, Phillies 2. – Prof: My goodness, that’s an ass kicking. J.A. Happ gets the win, and Aaron Nola gets the hook super early in the game. Can’t wait to see what our Northern Correspondents have to say about this game.
Braves 7, Reds 2 – Look! Someone the Braves can beat! Whay to go guys! Freddie Freeman with his 12th home run.
Rangers 5, A’s 1 – Prof: Colby Lewis took a no hitter into the 9th inning. What is it about the Rangers that they always blow it in the ninth inning, and usually on the last hitter, too? Remember when Yu Darvish missed a no-no because of the last pitch to the last hitter? The third out is the charm, I guess.
Would you rather have a no hitter broken up in the early game, say the 6th inning, or the 9th inning? The 9th is much more of a heart breaker, but you can still hang your hat on a dominant outing. Discuss.
Mariners 6, Rays 4 – Three errors doomed the Rays in a hard fought ballgame.
Orioles 5, Red Sox 1 – O’s Rookie Tyler Wilson pitched 8 strong innings shutting down the Red Sox.
Mets 6, Pirates 4 – We have a Colon sighting! Somebody call Statcast!
Tigers 10, Royals 4 – 4th of July comes early as V-Mart Go Boom. And Boom. And then Boom again.
Nationals 8, Padres 5 – Someone pitched to Bryce Harper. Mistaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake!
Yankees 4, Twins 1 – Gosh, C.C. Sebathia is looking good this year.
Brewers 8, Dodgers 6 – These are the sort of games you can’t afford to lose Dodgers.

It’s only appropriate we give you some music to start your day. This is my jam, and this works well for today’s post. There’s no “we” without you and I. Or, as Jeremih says, “there’s no oui without you and I”. Which is also true. Anyway, greet the morning with a smile and HAPPY FRIDAY.
