Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the death of musical icon and pop legend Prince. The Twins celebrated their most famous native son by painting the game purple. Their twitter feed and snapchat icons were purple as well. To remember the legacy of His Royal Badness, today I’m going to post some Prince music for your Saturday morning enjoyment. Word of warning, it’s still impossible to find Prince songs on YouTube, but I lucked out finding a few of my favorites. Still can’t find the best Prince song, “Seven”. Booooooo.
Braves 3, Phillies 4
Cubs 6, Reds 5 F/11
Royals 2, Rangers 6 – Joey Gallo smacked two homers in this game. I wonder what they’re going to do to keep him in the lineup since he’s only supposed to be in Texas temporarily?
Tigers 3, Twins 6
Red Sox 0, Orioles 2
Yankees 3, Pirates 6
Dodgers 5, Diamondbacks 13 – Whoa! Nine runs in the eighth inning gave the Gritty Snakes the upper hand. This is a situation where you ask did Arizona win, or Los Angeles lose? When you put your trust in Luis Avilan, you’re setting yourself up. But then again, when you have Paul Goldschmidt, you’re also setting yourself up. Discuss!
Mariners 1, Athletics 3
Blue Jays 8, Angels 7 F/13 – Joey Bats smacked a three run homer in the 13th inning, and still Toronto nearly coughed it up. Do we start worrying about the Blue Jays now?
Marlins 3, Padres 5
Cardinals 6, Brewers 3 – Adam Wainwright got a two run homer! Way to go, Waino! That being said, boo Cardinals.
Nationals 4, Mets 3 F/11
Astros 6, Rays 3
Indians 3, White Sox 0
Giants 5, Rockies 6 – HAHAHAHAHAHA MadBum. Schadenfreude.
