A lot of late games this week, which means not much baseball viewing for the majority of us. So what do you do on weeks like this when there isn’t much baseball around? I’m planning on spending a little extra time in the gym, listening to my favorite podcasts. Currently I’m hooked on How Did This Get Made, My Favorite Murder, and I need to catch up on season 2 of Serial. Any other really good podcasts out there I should be checking out? Today musically, we play the 7 degrees of YouTube game where you start with a video then find the next in the right hand recommended bar and then on again.
Braves 4, Brewers 3 F/12 – Prof: Nick Markakis and AJ Pierzynski both hit home runs in this road win against Milwaukee. Lots of sloppy play for the Brewers, including a game losing error from outfielder Keon Broxton.
Astros 1, Twins 3 – Prof: Trevor Plouffe is back! (OK, I know he didn’t really do anything, but I happen to like watching Plouffe play.) While Minnesota stars Plouffe, Mauer, and Dozier didn’t really do much for the night, the night belonged to Eddie Rosario, who went 3-4.
Rangers 4, Rockies 3 –Texas picked up 4 in the ninth to steal a late victory in Colorado.
Phillies 4, Dodgers 9 – Dodgers went deep 4 times, including twice by Corey Seager.
Rays 5, Blue Jays 7 – Prof: Both Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion had three RBI in this game.
Giants 8, Marlins 7 – Giants put up 5 in the 7th and 1 in the 14th to edge out the Marlins. Brandon Crawford picked up 7 hits. The guy in the orange shirt after Crawford’s 6th hit will be my new excitement gif.
Reds 4, Cardinals 5 – Prof: A shocking, come from behind win for St. Louis! The Reds were up 4-0 until the bottom of the 9th, when the Redbirds put up all of their runs. Tony Cingrani absolutely fell apart, and by the time Ross Ohlendorf came to the mound, it was too late.
Orioles 2, A’s 3 – Manny Machado hits another home run, but it wasn’t enough as the A’s come out on top.
Tigers 0, Mariners 3 – Was that winning steak for Detroit a passing thing or is this just a bump in the road?
