I’ll be honest with you guys. I got nothing today. Absolutely nothing of value to talk about. There are no good movies, no good sports stories, nothing in media, no big news stories. Absolutely nothing. It’s Friday and I’m exhausted. So why don’t we just skip the preamble today and get right to it.
Red Sox 4, Blue Jays 1 – Scouts: Sometimes all you need is a nice bases clearing double in the 10th after your latest free agent acquisition puts up 13 strike outs. All I can think of is Jame’s Brown’s “Living in America”.
Indians 6, Twins 2 – Scouts: Cleveland picks up the sweep behind Carlos Santana’s set of RBI Doubles.
Tigers 1, Rays 8 – Scouts: Detroit scored first, but then Tampa came back with 8 unanswered runs. Defense was again was a problem for the Tigers as Tyler Collins misplayed a bloop that turned into a two run, two-out triple.
Angels 1, Astros 2 – Scouts: LA was shut down all game, until the 9th when they put up one. Enough to threaten, but not enough to do any damage. Both of Houston’s runs came off solo’s.
Orioles 2, Reds 1 – Scouts: Coming off the back of Ubaldo’s stunning performance came one even better from Wade Miley who gave up just 2 hits in 8 innings with 11 strike outs. (And it wasn’t enough to get the win.) You could just tell watching Miley that he was absolutely in the zone last night. J.J. Hardy broke the game open with a double in the 10th.
Phillies 6, Mets 4 – Scouts: You don’t often get to commit three errors and still win a ballgame. The result of two of these errors ended in 5 runs, which is more than even Thor can overcome.
Nationals 3, Braves 2 – Scouts: Straz struck out the first 4 batters he faced, eventually totaling 10 on the night as the Nats completed the sweep.
Royals 0, Rangers 1 – Scouts: 13 innings it took for anyone to score. Delino DeShields hit the walk-off single to end the misery. The Royals have scored 4 or more runs just 4 times so far this season.
Cardinals 5, Brewers 7 – Scouts: Eric Thames just wont’ stop hitting bombs. Seriously, it’s getting a little ridiculous at this point.
D’Backs 1, Padres 4 – Scouts: Wil Myers and Austin Hedges both homered to give the Padres their 7th win on the year.
Mariners 6, Athletics 9 – Scouts: The A’s are on a 3 game win streak breaking Jame Paxton’s 23 scoreless inning streak.
