More of a “she said very little” as the fearless leader is out of commission this morning.
Mets 4, Nationals 11. Prof: Noah Syndergaard looked less than sharp against division rival Washington, who had five stolen bases against the Mets ace. Ben Revere, who in the month of June has a .250 batting average, was able to maintain a whopping .800 tonight against New York.
Rangers 9, Yankees 6.
Phillies 8, D’Backs 0
Cubs 11, Reds 8. Prof: If for some reason you doubt that Kris Bryant is nothing more than a pretty face, please reevaluate your beliefs. Today, Bryant hit three home runs, including one grand slam, plus two doubles. The first player in MLB history to do this in one game. And he’s only 24 years old.
Indians 8, Braves 3.
Blue Jays 5, Rockies 9
Cardinals 2, Royals 6. Prof: The Battle of Missouri is always contentious, even more so now that the Royals are defending world champions. Scary moment in this game when Cards shortstop Aledmys Diaz caught a foul pitch with his forehead.
Astros 4, Angels 2
Athletics 8, Giants 3
Dodgers 5, Pirates 4
Red Sox 7, Rays 13. Prof: Tampa Bay puts the brakes on their losing skid. Logan Forsythe (a proud alum of the University of Arkansas – WOO PIG SOOIE) goes 3-5 with one homer and 3 RBI.
