Prof: Happy Monday, everyone! I have a good feeling about this week, feeling optimistic about the future. With that optimistic feeling comes a sense of happiness that I want to share with you. This song makes me super happy, and what better way to welcome Monday than with a smile?
Scouts: Happy Monday everyone! I don’t know about you, but I am eagerly anticipating the long weekend next weekend, so hopefully this week will be quick. Unfortunately for me my team is embarking on a very long road trip to the west coast, and as a result I’m only going to be able to see approximately 4 games the next two weeks. Guess I’ll get caught up on some errands around the house and maybe finish the latest season of Orange is the New Black. (Which just doesn’t feel as good this year. I’m not sure what they did, but it’s just….off.)
Dodgers 3, Pirates 4 – Prof: Joc Pederson is walked twice in a wasted effort by once and future king Clayton Kershaw. Chad Kuhl get his first career win for the Buccos.
Twins 7, Yankees 1 – Minnesota does their best Baltimore impersonation hitting 6 home runs off the Yankees.
Cubs 1, Marlins 6 – The Cubs lose another one as Joe Maddon is now feeling his seat warming up.
Rays 5, Orioles 12 – Chris Davis hit what I like to call a lead off Grand Slam. What’s a lead off Grand Slam? Well I just made it up. It’s when the first three batters in the game reach base followed by a Grand Slam by the fourth. O’s never looked back as the Rays losing streak reaches 11. Chin up, Rays fans you still get to go to Boston.
Indians 9, Tigers 3 – Prof: Justin Verlander gives up four home runs in the fifth to the suddenly hot team from the magical land of Cleve.
Padres 0, Reds 3 – Jay Bruce who was heavily shopped, but no one wanted in the off-season is now hitting .279/.328/.909 with 17 Home Runs. That’s all I got.
Mets 2, Braves 5 – The Barves took this one in part due to a three run home-run by Adonis Garcia in 8th capping a 4 run inning.
Nationals 3, Brewers 2 – Prof: The roof was open at Miller Park today, and the brightness of the sun nearly blinded Jayson Werth, allowing the Brewers to come back within striking distance. But alas, no win for the Brew Crew today. Stephen Strasburg is put on the disabled list due to ongoing problems with his back.
Astros 1, Royals 6 – KC Scores 5 in the 7th to snap Houston’s 7 game win streak.
Phillies 7, Giants 8 – Cueto did not have his best game, but the Giants were able to skate by anyways after Conor Gillaspie’s walk-off double.
Blue Jays 2, White Sox 5 – Prof: Chris Sale gets win number 13 of the season, continuing to keep his ERA under 3. Are we looking at the AL Cy Young award frontrunner?
Cardinals 11, Mariners 6 – St. Louis is starting to heat up as we enter the summer months. Too bad they are trapped in a 9 game hole.
D’Backs 7, Rockies 9 – Trevor Story hits his 19th and Mark Reynolds hit a 2 run walk-off bomb.
A’s 6, Angels 7 – Mike Trout hit his 16th as the Angels came back from down 6-2 in the 7th as the Angels walked this one off with a sac fly. Coco Crisp hit a grand slam in the 4th.
Red Sox 2, Rangers 6 – Prof: Texas now has the largest division lead in the majors – 10 games. Prince Fielder in a resurgence.
