He Said, She Said: Recaps for 6/29/16

Prof:  It’s Throwback Thursday. For this morning’s tunes, we’re picking songs we liked in high school, or thereabouts. For some extra fun, figure out which ones are mine and which ones are Scout’s.

Scouts: No highlights today, let’s jam out like it’s 1999!

Twins 6, White Sox 9Prof:  In a stunning turn of events, James Shields gets the win, and brings his ERA down to a mere 15.80 for the month of June. Todd Frazier knocks in his 22nd home run of the season.

Royals 3, Cardinals 2Wang gets the win.

Orioles 12, Padres 5The Orioles offense is the hottest thing in baseball these days.  In the last 28 daysIn the last 28 days, the Orioles have hit .299/.354/.526/.880 with 48 home runs, 54 doubles, and 150 RBI.  (RBI’s are a team stat, so they really matter in this context.)  The Orioles have tied the record for team home runs in June and still have a game to play.  Mark Trumbo hit his league leading 23rd.

Marlins 3, Tigers 10Prof:  Miguel Cabrera caps off a Detroit rout with a 451 foot moon shot.

Red Sox 0, Rays 4Price had a terrible third inning and Matt Moore shut down a Boston offense that’s been cooling off.

Indians 3, Braves 0The best rotation in baseball vs. the worst offense.  We all had a pretty good idea what was coming right? The Indians pitching staff is currently second in wins, first in ERA, first in Hits, first in Runs, first in ER, second in HR and second in BB given up in the American League.  And 6th in SO.

Blue Jays 5, Rockies 3Prof:  Josh Donaldson went nine games without a home run. Poor kid, how could he face the public with such a dark cloud hanging over his head? It’s OK, though; he’s gone back to Toronto with a homer under his belt. Canadians can all breathe a sigh of relief now.

Astros 10, Angels 4Houston has won 9 of their last 10, but are still 9 games behind Texas who has won 7 of their last 10.  Baby steps.

Cubs 9, Reds 2 Nothing quite like a trip to Cincinnati to right a sinking ship.  On to lolMets.

Phillies 9, Diamondbacks 8 – F/10  Prof:  Arizona allowed Philadelphia to sweep them at home. Wow. Paul Goldschmidt’s brilliant play once again is wasted. I almost feel sorry for the guy. Maybe one day he’ll be able to leave the desert.

Rangers 7, Yankees 9The Yankees score 1 in the 8th and 6 in the ninth to provide a stunning comeback against the second best team in baseball. Didi Gregorious capped it off with a walk off home run after Brian McCann tied it up with a three run home run.  I could link you the John Sterling call, but I don’t hate any of you that much.  I’m pretty sure they are playing it over and over on a loop in some hidden interrogation room somewhere.

Pirates 8, Mariners 1Seattle has lost 7 of their last 10, dropped to .500 and have a red hot Baltimore coming to town.  Which probably means they are going to start a 9-0 run.

Mets 2, Nationals 4Prof:  Things are bleak in New York these days. Are we looking at the return of LOLMets? The thing that propelled the Mets to the playoffs last year – starting pitching – is shaky. Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz both have bone spurs, Matt Harvey is a shell of his last season self, and the less said about Logan Verrett, the better. Maybe it’s good that captain and Mr. Met doppleganger David Wright is out for the rest of the year, so he doesn’t have to face such misery day in and day out.

Giants 1, Athletics 7 A 3 run third and a 4 run fourth and that’s the ballgame folks.  Don’t give Jake Peavy all the blame however, the Giants committed 3 errors as only 3 of the 7 runs Peavy gave up were earned.

Dodgers 0, Brewers 7Prof:  Behold, the power of cheese. Milwaukee smashed five runs in the second alone, and added two more in the seventh to further humiliate Los Angeles. Ryan Braun hits a two run homer and a two run double to boot.

  1. Nats complete the sweep of the Mets behind a dominant start from Scherzer, two home runs from Daniel “Miss Me Mets?” Murphy, and a shaky ninth from Shawn Kelley. Papelbon’s due back soon, but he wasn’t exactly missing bats before his stint on the DL, and so I think Rizzo’s going to have to get a shutdown closer for this team if they want to do more than just appear in October.

    Tomorrow is July 1, and we’re guaranteed to wake up tomorrow with every division leader up by at least 4 1/2 games. Obviously such leads are not insurmountable with half the season left, but it’s starting to look like all the drama this season might be in the wild card chases, which, meh. I just don’t have the energy to follow a seven team chase for a spot in a one-game playoff; maybe I’ll sing a different tune if it’s my team that’s involved in such a chase someday.

  2. Tigers win. Miggy goes boom. Yippee!

    I like your music theme today, but if I went back to my high school days……nevermind. So I’ll add some from your era that I like, sorry if it’s overload. Have a great day all!

  3. Lately, I feel like we could actually use a little reminder from Reagan’s America…

    Wait, that’s Thatcher’s UK…hehe

    Noble Britain, we need you!
