He Said, She Said – Recaps for 7/20/16

Prof:  We’re nearing the end of the week, friends. staring at calendar intensifies

Brewers 9, Pirates 5Prof:  Even with an error, the Brewers put a hurting on Pittsburgh. Shortstop Jonathan Villar went 3-4, driving in a run. How many more games, though, will All-Star and actual star Jonathan Lucroy be in a Brewers uniform? Inquiring minds want to know.

Rangers 4, Angels 7 – Prince Fielder will likely miss the remainder of the season with a herniated disk in his neck.  Texas has now dropped 8 of their last 10.

Braves 3, Reds 6Prof: Joey Votto produces his 16th home run of the year against that sad Triple-A team masquerading as the Atlanta Braves. 

Mets 2, Cubs 6Prof:  Now, that’s more like it. My boy, Heart and Hustle Award winner Anthony Rizzo, hits two home runs, with 3 RBI.

 

Twins 4, Tigers 1 Minnesota has won all of their games since firing Terry Ryan.

Indians 11, Royals 4 Prof:  Tyler Naquin, you son of a gun. Two homers (sounds like a broken record today, right?) against the BBQ Boys, and Cookie Carrasco gets the win. #PartyAtNapolis

Marlins 1, Phillies 4Wei-Yin Chen is not earning that big payday so far this year.

Giants 7, Red Sox 11Prof:  A high scoring, huge hitting affair in Boston brings the Red Sox to the AL East lead. Matt Cain is currently 1-6 for San Francisco. Henley Ramirez mashed three home runs in this one.

 

Padres 2, Cardinals 4 (Game 1) The Padres lose out on an excellent opportunity to double dip the Cardinals.

Padres 2, Cardinals 3 (Game 2)Prof:  A double header because of last night’s rain out.

Rays 11, Rockies 3Prof:  Looks like the Rays are back for the time being. Chris Archer looked sharp, while former Rockies player Corey Dickerson made Colorado wish he was still rocking the purple.

Astros 7, Athletics 0Fister pitched 7 scoreless to get the Astros back on track.

White Sox 5, Mariners 6 F/11Leonys Martin jacked two bombs in this one, the second one a 2 run walk off to beat the Sox.

 

Blue Jays 10, D’Backs 4Prof:  Why do I always initially write Bleu Jays”? Am I trying to put the team in Montreal? No matter in what language, the Blue Jays are red hot. The ol’ Bringer of Rain himself, Josh Donaldson, went oppo as Toronto demolished Arizona.

 

Orioles 0, Yankees 5Thanks to a 4 game skid, the Orioles have fallen out of first place, now trailing the Red Sox by half a game.

Dodgers 1, Nationals 8Prof:  H/T to COPO, who told me about Bryce Harper’s MONSTER homer. It was his only hit of the night, but it was a doozy. The Dodgers really miss Clayton Kershaw right about now.

  1. I love seeing the Twins win like this. If only to play the role of spoiler the rest of the way out. It’s going to be an interesting 10 days here to see if the team makes any moves before the trade deadline. The tradeable pitching assets have sure had some nice outings lately.
    It must have been demoralizing for Tiger’s fans to watch the lowly Twins take the series from them in their own park. (Historio)?

    • OMG, and V was really solid too. He gave up 2 hits in 8 innings…then K-Rod had to blow it thanks to a throwing error and 2 hr’s. We coulda won that. And Mighty Miggy is still AWOL. Argh.

  2. Although I watch and support my boys win or lose, it’s nice to see pieces on which they can build on for next year. The pitching will return to baseline, and the hitting is somewhat improved. Next year should be fun.

    Nice job, guys.
