Scouts: Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone is prepared for the holiday weekend. Does anyone have any special plans? I don’t normally celebrate Easter myself, so I’m just hoping to get some things done around the house and rest as much as possible. Prof took the night off last night, so today you’ll have me all to yourself. Deal with it.
Twins 11, Tigers 5 – Scouts: The Twins offense came alive as they were able to tie up first place with the Tigers. 8 walks eventually took their toll on the Tigers as the Twins took advantage.
Pirates 3, Red Sox 4 – Scouts: The Sox picked up 3 runs in the 8th in crazy fashion to come back against the Pirates. I don’t recall a team coming “this” close to ending a threat so many times in one inning and continuing to come up short.
Dodgers 0, Cubs 4 – Scouts: The Cubs got some mighty big dongs out of Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell as Brett Anderson shut down the Dodgers.
Rangers 8, Angels 3 – Scouts: Yu Darvish reminded us all of what he is capable of going 7 innings, giving up just 5 hits, and striking out 10. LA picked up all 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th when the game was long past over.
White Sox 10, Indians 4 – Scouts: The White Sox were supposed to be one of the worst teams in the league while the Indians are supposed to be one of the best. Now the Indians hold just a half game lead over the Sox who opened the game with a 5 spot in the first and never looked back.
Rays 2, Yankees 3 – Scouts: Luis Severino racked up 11 K’s and Aaron Hicks managed a homer from each side of the plate to give the Yankees a sweep. I was going to post the video, but it’s full of John Sterlins who just won’t shut the fuck up. I just can’t subject you to that.
Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1 – Scouts: The Jays who are already struggling with their worst start ever at 1-8 just lost Josh Donaldson to a leg injury. This is the second injury this week for Donaldson. Zach Britton picks up consecutive save number 53 which is third in MLB history.
Brewers 5, Reds 1 – Scouts: Ryan Braun and Eric Thames got out of the kitchen and into the fire picking up big Taters and multiple RBI’s each.
Mets 9, Marlins 8 – Scouts: The Mets are playing not like the Mets. After giving up 4 in the first, they respond with 4 in the second and 2 in the third. They eventually gave up another 5 in the 5th and the game went into extra, extra,extra overtime. Travis d’Arnaud sent the remaining fans home pissed as he hit a solo in the top of the 16th. But it’s all good in Miama as Jeffrey Loria might be the next Ambassador to France.
Athletics 1, Royals 3 – Scouts: Is it right that we are only 10 or so games into the season and I just don’t really care about this game?
Rockies 2, Giants 1 – Scouts: Colorado is a surprising 7-4 but might have to go it without their top pitcher as Jon Gray left in the 3rd after aggravating a big toe injury.
