Prof: I feel like a little Fleetwood Mac today.
A’s 2, Rangers 5 – Adrian Beltre hit a grand-slam that shut the door on the A’s.
Royals 3, Tigers 1 – Prof: Miguel Cabrera left the game with a strained biceps.
Blue Jays 0, Yankees 1 – Prof: Aaron Judge keeps his hot streak going with an RBI double, which was all New York needed to defeat R.A. Dickey and Toronto.
Marlins 6, Reds 3 – Ozuna keeps up the fantastic season he’s having, but the big question, is he good enough to shoulder the burden on his own without Stanton around.
Padres 2, Rays 8 – Prof: Tampa Bay converts every hit to a run. More impressive? They pretty much did it all in the eighth inning. Logan Forsythe gets a two run homer in the second.
Nationals 5, Rockies 4 – Washington digs out of an early 3-0 hole as it looks like Bryce Harper may finally be hitting again. Max Scherzer lasted only 4 innings.
Red Sox 3, Indians 2 – Prof: David Ortiz hit his 27th home run of the season, and Boston scored all of their runs in the sixth. Craig Kimbrel gets the save.
Mets 6, D’Backs 10 – Prof: Seriously. What happened to the Mets? What can you lay your finger on? Is it the loss of Daniel Murphy? Yoenis Cespedes? Is it Matt Harvey’s injury and Jacob deGrom’s slow start? Is it the lack of David Wright’s leadership? A very bad outing from Bartolo Colon puts an ugly cap on an ugly night for New York. In other news, Paul Goldschmidt is still ridiculously good – 3-4 at the plate.
Mariners 3, Angels 2 – Both Trout and Cruz homered. Seattle has now won 9 of the last 10 while the Angels have dropped 11 in a row.
Pirates 8, Giants 5 – With the loss the Dodgers are just a half game back from the division lead and are beginning a series against the Phillies.
