Prof: Let’s get this show on the road with today’s recap. Scout went mellow with the tunes yesterday. I am stressed out and I need to release some energy, so here’s not so mellow stuff.
White Sox 6, Phillies 7 – Prof: James Shields loses, again. For Philadelphia, Odubel Herrera was the star of the show. Herrera went 3-4 with a homer and 3 RBI.
Braves 5, Mets 4 – Prof: Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-3 for the Mets, contributing an RBI, and Adonis Garcia went 3-5 with a home run for the Braves. Everyone’s favorite generic sounding closer, Jim Johnson, gets the save.
Angels 4, Rangers 5 – The Rangers do seem to win a lot of 1 run ballgames don’t they? That’s the sort of thing that’s important, but I’m not sure exactly how.
Reds 1, Cubs 6 – Prof: Anthony Rizzo. What I can say about him? Even his most basic baseball feats are awesome. A single drove in two runs. What can’t Rizz do? His co-MVP, Kris Bryant, went 3-5 with two doubles and an RBI of his own.
Pirates 6, Brewers 3 – Prof: Right off the bat, the Pirates came out to play, and they never looked back. Andrew McCutchen hit a two run double. Also, Ryan Braun and his wife are proud new parents of a wee baby boy.
Tigers 8, Twins 1 – Matt Boyd took a shutout into the 7th inning and the Tigers moved to 1.5 games back of the struggling Orioles for the final wild card spot.
Cardinals 10, Rockies 5 – Prof: Here’s something that NL people love and AL people will dismiss. Adam Wainwright leads the league in pitcher RBI. He has 18, highest total since 1974. And it’s not a fluke, either. Waino hit a deep double and a single last night and brought in four runs.
Scouts: The fact that 18 RBI’s is the most by a pitcher in 42 years proves my point that pitchers batting is stupid. #DHForLifeBaby, #PitchersShouldPitch
Giants 2, Dodgers 0 – The Giants won the game but still lost the day as Johnny Cueto left in the 6th with a strained groin. #DontLookAtMe
Astros 2, A’s 1 – George Springer hit a go-ahead double in the top of the 10th.
Blue Jays 10, Mariners 2 – Holy Moly, the Mariners are blowing their best opportunity to get into the playoffs. Toronto had a monster 8 run 4th inning which included multiple two-run home runs.
D’backs 2, Padres 5 – I don’t really want to recap this game. Let’s just say one team was better than the other and leave it at that.
Red Sox 5, Orioles 2 – Prof: Mookie Betts gets a hit and David Ortiz hits a homer. Must be another Red Sox victory at Camden Yards. Hard luck Kevin Gausman gets the loss for Baltimore.
Royals 1, Indians 2 – Prof: Brandon Guyer hits a walk-off double to win the game for the Magical Land of Cleve. The Indians have a league leading 11 walk off wins this season.
Nationals 0, Marlins 1 – Prof: The Feesh had the one-two punch of El Keed and Giancarlo Stanton to knock out the Nats last night. Tanner Roark pitched very well, but ultimately the cold Washington bats are what made the difference.
Yankees 5, Rays 3 – Prof: What up, Gary Sanchez? The rookie Yankee catcher had a 3 run HR in last night’s game, putting New York over the top.
