Prof: Happy Monday everyone. Hope you had a great weekend!
Cardinals 6, Cubs 4 – Cardinals picked up 5 runs in the 8th off the Cubs bullpen. I hear a certain Mr. Papelbon is available…
Rockies 6, Phillies 7 – Jimmy Paredes was a triple shy of a cycle as the Phillies complete the sweep of the Rockies. Colorado mounted a bit of a comeback in the 9th, but fell a run short.
Orioles 8, Giants 7 – Jonathan Schoop and the Baltimore Orioles absolutely stun the Giants with 7 runs scored in the final three innings, including a three run go ahead homer with two outs in the 9th to cap the comeback. Zach Britton picks up his 37th save. Matt Wieters goes 5-5 with a triple.
Braves 1, Nationals 9 – Prof: Washington scores on every hit generated off of the Braves. Anthony Rendon went 1-4, but his only hit was an important one – a three run homer.
Reds 3, Brewers 7 – Prof: Ryan Braun smashes two homers in this win over Cincinnati.
Royals 11, Twins 4 – KC picked up 6 in the 4th and 4 to put a hurting on the Twins.
Tigers 7, Rangers 0 – Prof: The Historio special. V-Mart hits a two run homer in this shutout win over Texas.
Rays 12, Yankees 3 – Prof: My goodness, there were some high scoring games. Tampa Bay scored six in the fourth inning alone. Evan Longoria went 3-4, with 4 RBI.
Astros 2, Blue Jays 9 – Toronto got homers from Tulowitzki, Martin, and Encarnacion to hold their lead in the AL East.
Angels 4, Indians 5 – Prof: Jason Kipnis hits his 20th home run of the season in this victory over the Angels.
Padres 1, Mets 5 – Prof: Did you know that the Padres and the Mets both have never had no hitters? Well, sadly, both didn’t get one yesterday, either. Stephen Matz tried his hardest, though, and did a great job through seven innings.
White Sox 4, Marlins 5 – The Marlins get to Sale, who hasn’t quite been the same since the jersey incident.
Diamondbacks 2, Red Sox 16 – Prof: Yes, that score is correct. Zack Greinke has his worst outing ever in today’s game against Boston. In 1.2 innings, ZG gave up 10 hits and 9 runs. For the Sox, Rick Porcello pitched seven solid innings giving up only three hits and one run. Mookie Betts went 4-6 with three home runs.
Mariners 8, Athletics 4 – Kyle Seager picks up 4 RBI’s and Wade LeBlanc held down the Athletics.
Pirates 11, Dodgers 3 – Prof: Five runs in the first inning was all Pittsburgh needed to get the win, but they added one in the fourth and fifth innings, as well as four in the ninth to seal the deal.
