Prof: Happy Friday. I have an extended weekend. Of course, I’m not doing anything super fun, unless you call going through 10 years of accumulated crap in a basement fun.
I’m going to need something to get my blood pumping, and maybe you do, too. So let’s do this.
Rangers 1, Yankees 2 – Yankees walk off for the second game in a row as Chase Headley scores on a passed ball by Robinson Chirinos.
Orioles 3, Mariners 5 – Prof: The Orioles have just set a major league record for number of home runs in June. Congrats, boys.
Twins 5, White Sox 6 – Frazier hit home run number 23 to tie Mark Trumbo for first place.
Reds 4, Nationals 13 – Danny Espinosa hit a grand slam and the Nationals take thier 5th consecutive victory.
Marlins 5, Braves 8 – Prof: The Braves can only play well when they face off against the Marlins. This is a known fact. Tonight is no exception. Hits came from everyone; even Erick Aybar got in on the action.
Dodgers 8, Brewers 1 – For at least one day, everyone forgot about Clayton Kershaw.
Cubs 3, Mets 4 – Cespedes hit one that had a damn stewardess on it.
Indians 4, Blue Jays 1 – The Indians have now won 13 in a row and with that rotation, show zero signs of slowing down.
Giants 12, Athletics 6 – Prof: AL people around these parts laughed about MadBum foregoing his DH in order to bat as well as pitch. As one of the few who fully support pitchers at the plate, I was in favor of it. Except for the fact that it’s MadBum, and I’m sure you all know my feelings about the subject. Anyway, what’s the first thing Bumgarner does? Hit a double. Ain’t that something.
Scouts: You mean that error that was misplayed about four times, but we can’t ever call errors errors anymore because it might hurt someone’s feelings? Yeah, nice double there.
Tigers 10, Rays 7 – Pitching, which is supposed to be Tampa’s strength continues to let them down this year.
Royals 4, Cardinals 2 – Kentrys Morales went 12 for 16 in the four game set against the Cardinals, including a 456 foot bomb in this one.
