Prof: This weekend, we had some crazy games. Extra innings all day! We had wild comebacks, incredible ass kickings, and we even had one of my favorite things, a position player pitching. So let’s get into the madness that was Sunday’s schedule.
Scouts: Sorry for the abbreviated post today, I have a training class I have to prep for. Tomorrow’s might be more of the same, but I hope to be back on track by Wednesday.
Orioles 7, Yankees 4 F/11 – Prof: The Yankees had this one in hand, and then they didn’t. My bae Mark Trumbo contributed to the rally. New York had a pitcher play first base for a little bit, which of course gives me life.
Rays 1, Blue Jays 3 – Scouts: Tampa’s bullpen blew it, giving up 3 runs in the 8th.
Mariners 4, Indians 12 – Prof: The Magical Land of Cleve got hot early, blasting eight runs in the third inning to destroy Seattle’s hopes and dreams early.
White Sox 3, Tigers 7 – Scouts: Detroit stomped out Chicago’s 6 game winning streak.
Twins 7, Royals 5 – Prof: Miguel Sano smacks a 3 run homer to put Happy’s boys on top. Man, Kansas City has really sunk low.
Mets 5, Nationals 23 – Prof: Great googly moogly. This is a football score. This is a cheat code in Xbox. This is a mercy rule game with no mercy. But it was doomed from even before the first pitch, as the ailing, snakebitten Mets rotation offered up Noah Syndergaard, who refused an MRI after he missed his last start. The Mighty Thor had difficulty again, leaving in the second inning. If the Mets were a horse, they would have been shot for coming up lame. Anthony Rendon embarrassed everyone alive by going 6-6, with three home runs and 10 RBI. New York was so depleted by the end that a backup catcher had to pitch an inning. Bless Kevin Plawecki for being the guy willing to fight the dragon.
A’s 2, Astros 7 – Scouts: Dallas Keuchel went 7 2/3 with 9 strikeouts.
Pirates 3, Marlins 10 – Prof: On any other day, this would have been the ass kicking of the day. Sorry, Feesh. But still, this was nothing to sneer at. Justin Bour had six RBI in the rout.
Cubs 2, Red Sox 6 – Scouts: A wild pitch and an error helped the Red Sox pickup 4 in the 8th.
Braves 3, Brewers 4 – Scouts: Domingo Santana hit a pair of jacks and picked up 4 RBI doing all the work for Milwaukee.
Rockies 0, Diamondbacks 2 F/13 – Scouts: Daniel Descalso walked it off with a 2-run bomb in the 13th.
Phillies 2, Dodgers 5 – Scouts: Chris Taylor and Andrew Toles homered picking up all of LA’s points in this one.
Padres 5, Giants 2 F/12 – Prof: Wil Myers saved his best for last, taking the Pads over San Francisco in extras. A three run homer did the trick.
Reds 5, Cardinals 4 – Scouts: Down 4-0 after 5, Cincy came roaring back to stick on to the Cards.
Angels 5, Rangers 2 – Prof: In a shocking turn of events, I can’t say that Joey Gallo hit a homer last night. But Kole Calhoun did. Baseball is crazy.
