Scouts: My team had the day off yesterday, as did a majority of the league. What do you typically do to fill that void when your favorite team has the day off? Do you try to find another game to watch? Do you catch-up on Netflix and family time? Personally I fed my latest addiction, Overwatch. Even as a fan it’s nice to take a day or a game off on occasion and take a step away for a moment. Now I’m eagerly anticipating a return to the field tonight. It’s Friday and I’m dragging a little today and need a good musical pick-me-up. Come sing and dance with me!
Athletics 5, Angels 4 – Marcus Semien hit a three run home run in the second as the A’s dispatched Tim Lincecum in his Angel Stadium debut. Scary scene as umpire Paul Emmel was hit by a lost bat on the back-swing and was taken to the hospital. He is reported to be okay.
Mets 3, Braves 4 – Prof: What’s wrong with the Mets? I know it’s a hard thing to lose both your first and third basemen for the season, especially when your third baseman is the undisputed heart and soul of the team, but the Mets should be loaded for bear. They should not be losing to a team whose motto is “We never met an overpaid veteran we didn’t like.” In the meantime, one of those veterans, A.J. Pierzynski, went 2-4 with 2 RBI.
Giants 5, Pirates 3 – The Bucs are officially in trouble as they continue to be unable to defeat a winning team.
Phillies 7, Twins 3 – Prof: Freddy Galvis goes 2-3 with a home run to give Philadelphia the advantage over Minnesota.
Mariners 4, Tigers 5 – F/10 – Seattle gets it’s most painful loss yet. After being unable to bring in a man on third with zero outs in the top of hte inning, Steve Cishek throws a wild pitch allowing Cameron Maybin to score the winning run. Seattle is now one game below .500.
Padres 7, Reds 4 – Two terrible teams played. One less terrible team won. I don’t expect to see this series on MLB’s game of the week anytime soon.
Cubs 2, Marlins 4 – Prof: Cubbies in a four game slump, while Giancarlo Stanton seems to be breaking out of his. I trust Gator will give us a recap in his own Feeshy way.
Diamondbacks 7, Rockies 6 – Arizona almost blew a 3 run lead only to score the winning run with a 2 out single in the top of the 9th. Can someone explain to me why your $206 million dollar starting pitcher is fucking stealing second base? #DHForLifeSon
White Sox 7, Red Sox 8 – F/10 – Prof: Kimbrel with the (vulture-y?) win here. The losing pitcher is named Purke. I thought it said “Puke”. Note to F.I. fam and friends, please don’t allow me to read anything after working for 12 hours straight.
