Apologies for the short recap, but Prof is still out with the plague and I managed to wake up with a pinched nerve in my neck this morning and basically can’t move my head more than an inch. They say the great ones play hurt. So I guess I’m only half ok? I hope you appreciate the musical theme today.
Game 1 – Tigers 9, Twins 2 – This one was a little bit closer than it looked when Detroit opened up for 6 runs in the 9th.
Game 2 – Tigers 4, Twins 2 – Big day for Detroit winning both against Minnesota. Detroit moves into a half game lead for the last spot in the Wild Card.
Red Sox 5, Orioles 3 – The Orioles continue to disappoint. Quick, when’s the WORST time to go into a massive slump?
Braves 6, Marlins 3 – That about officially ends it for the Marlins who lose courtesy of a 4 run 3rd inning.
Royals 2, Indians 5 – Carlos Santana broke the tie with a three-run home run in the sixth.
Yankees 0, Rays 2 – The Rays pitching shut out the super hot Yankees offense and it certainly was a team effort with the starter Blake Snell only going 5 innings.
Phillies 8, Mets 9 – Asdrubal Cabrera walked it off with a three-run home run in the bottom of the 11th that only got into extras due to a Jose Reyes two-run home run in the 9th.
Angels 2, Astros 0 – Albert Pujols hit a two-run homer in the first and that was all the excitement in this ball game.
Pirates 1, Brewers 3 – Scooter Gennett and Chris Carter scored all the runs the Brewers needed with two-run and solo homers.
Rockies 4, Dodgers 7 – Yasmani Grandal hit a pair of home runs, including a grand slam in the 7th to put the Dodgers up for good.
Giants 2, Padres 1 – Jeff Samardzija pitched 7 scoreless innings leading the Giants to a narrow victory over the Padres.
