Prof: It’s Wednesday! One day closer to the weekend. Let’s get the day started with a funky bass groove.
Scouts: Holy criminy there were a lot of runs scored last night! There was just one game with a total of 4 runs scored, and two with a total of 5, yet 4 teams scored in the double digits! I sadly will be catching up on my team’s offensive explosion via replay this morning as when I went to bed the game was just 1-1. I wake up to find that 16 runs were scored in my slumber. Not a good day to be a starting pitcher. Today promises to be better as a number of aces are taking the bump including Price, Keuchel, Scherzer, Tanaka, and Salazar.
Red Sox 8, Rays 2 – Chris Archer is now 4-11 with a 4.76 ERA and 1.45 WHIP.
Marlins 5, Tigers 7 – Both the big names, Stanton and Cabrera homered in the game. Fans left happy.
Indians 5, Braves 3 – Prof: Corey Kluber goes five shutout innings before Erick Aybar gets a hit. Ender Inciarte finally puts Atlanta on the board. Jason Kipnis continues to be solid for the team from the Magical Land of Cleve.
Athletics 13, Giants 11 – Just one of several high scoring games today, there was no pitching to be found. 30 combined hits in the ball game.
Orioles 11, Padres 7 – Ubaldo has won his last two games. Both were against the Padres. Ren will be very happy today. Kim hit his second home run. Davis hit number 19 and has been sizzling hot the last month. Both teams hit lead-off homeruns.
Twins 4, White Sox 0 – Prof: Brian Dozier catches fire, hitting two home runs in a rout of Chicago.
Pirates 2, Mariners 5 – Seattle hopes to be getting back on the winning track. Pittsburgh still can’t beat a winning team. Nelson Cruz hit number 20.
Astros 7, Angels 1 – Lincecum drops his second in a row as his ERA rises to 6.75
Cubs 7, Reds 2 – F/15 – Prof: The Chicago Cubs know how to entertain. First, they give us free baseball for five innings, and then end it with a grand slam in the 15th!
Dodgers 6, Brewers 5 – The 19 year old rookie not only got his first big league victory, but also got his first big league hit and RBI.
Mets 0, Nationals 5 – A relatively low scoring affair compared to the rest of the day’s action. Harper hit a 2 run home-run and Harvey picks up loss number 10. It may officially be time for Met fans to panic.
Rangers 7, Yankees 1 – Prof: Cole Hamels blows into New York like a hot Texas wind, bringing Texas their fourth straight win and his ninth win of the season.
Blue Jays 14, Rockies 9 – A hailstorm couldn’t stop Tulo from hitting a homerun in his return to Colorado. Toronto scored in innings 3-9.
Cardinals 8, Royals 4 – Yordano Ventura managed not to commit assault in his first game back from suspension despite giving up a ton of runs.
Phillies 4, Diamondbacks 3 – Prof: Zack Greinke left the game in the second inning with tightness in his left oblique. That’s pretty much the only noteworthy thing about a Phillies/D’Backs game, let’s be honest.
