He Said, She Said – Recaps for 8/9/16

Prof:  For some reason, I feel like posting music I listened to in high school today. Hope you don’t mind.

Astros 7, Twins 5 – Astros win on the back of Jose Altuve’s 4 hit game.

Giants 0, Marlins 2 – Stanton’s so strong he broke his bat and still muscled out a double to the wall.  Unfortunately he left the game with what people are calling a sore hip and will likely miss a game or two as a precaution.  Marlins fans may not breathe for a few days.

 

Braves 2, Brewers 1Prof:  Brother Tyrell Jenkins leads the suddenly surging Braves to another victory against a toothless Milwaukee team. The Brewers’ only run came courtesy of Ryan Braun’s 19th home run of the year.

Phillies 3, Dodgers 9 – LA put up 9 runs by the 5th inning to wallop the Phillies.

Rangers 7, Rockies 5Prof: On a night that we potentially had to say goodbye to Prince Fielder, his teammates showed why they are the team to beat in the AL West.  Here’s an amazing stat – the Astros are nine games behind the Rangers right now. 13 days ago, they were only 2.5 games back. That’s impressive.

Orioles 1, Athletics 2 – The Birds bats go silent on yet another road trip as Adam Jones solo homer is the sole source of Orioles’ offense.

Yankees 3, Red Sox 5 – Fans arrived at the stadium disappointed and confused to find the team cancelled the David Ortiz bobble-head giveaway at the very last moment.  Turns out whoever made the damn thing is about to get super fired.  The team announced that fans should hold onto their tickets to be able to receive the bobble-head at a later time.  You know once they make one that’s about 90% less racist.  In case you were wondering the Red Sox and Yankees still don’t care for each other very much as tempers flared after a play at third.  Later in the game the very “classy” Red Sox fans started to cheer “We want A-Rod“.

 

Diamondbacks 5, Mets 3Prof:  Zack Greinke is back! And he gets the win against New York. Neil Walker continues to be a major asset for the Mets, going 3-4 with a HR in the loss.

Indians 3, Nationals 1Prof:  Max Scherzer had a no-hitter going until the 7th inning. Trevor Bauer’s own pitching performance wasn’t too shabby, either. Terry Francona was not managing due to poor health. Chest pains aren’t anything to joke about. Get well soon, Tito.

Tigers 5, Mariners 6 -Tigers fans are in an immense amount of pain today as their team blew not one but two late leads.  Detroit thought they had a victory, scoring one in the 15th inning, only to have the bullpen blow another one giving up 2 in the bottom of the frame.

 

White Sox 7, Royals 5 F/10 – Chicago scored 3 in the top of the 9th and was able to hold off a potential comeback in the bottom of the 9th.

Angels 1, Cubs 5Prof:  What happened in this game? Eh, not much, just Kris Bryant hitting his 28th home run of the season and the Cubs winning their 8th straight. My second least favorite Cub gets the win and Midnight Karaoke favorite Jerrrrred Weaver gets the loss.

 

 

 

Reds 7, Cardinals 4Prof:  Really, St. Louis? Against the Reds? What’s sad is that the Redbirds were ahead until the 8th inning, when relief pitcher Matt Bowman had a meltdown.

Padres 4, Pirates 6 – Gregory Polanco hit a three run homer that was the difference in this one.  San Diego tried to come back with runs in the 8th and 9th but it was too little, too late.

Rays 9, Blue Jays 2Prof: Whoa, Tampa Bay! The Rays toy with Marco Estrada, then they decided to destroy poor Scott Feldman. Forsythe and Kiermaier were the heavy hitters for TB.

  1. The Twins hit 3 HR off Mike Fiers and still lost the damn game due to Altuve and his 4/4 night. Sano blasted another 442 ft shot (19) and Robbie Grossman and Brian Dozier (23) went back to back. It wasn’t enough as Hector Santiago who cruised early had trouble in the middle innings and gave the lead back to the Stros. Today it’s Dallas Kuechel and Ervin Santana taking the mound. It should be a well pitched game.
    Idiots on the local Fan radio are saying the Twins should sign A-Rod for the remainder of this year just to make some noise and bring attention to the team. I believe he will be working as a Special Advisor to the Yanks as he is under contract with them through next year. Sometimes there is no fixing stupid…

  2. Scuttlebutt is that the Iron Giant bruised his hip on that great sliding catch he made in the 14-inning loss to the Jints two days ago. Apparently today was his scheduled day of rest anyway and the big guy says it’s not really any big deal. I’ll believe him a lot more easily than I would have believed a finely spun artifice by the team factotems and try to relax about it.
