Scouts: Sorry gang, it’s going to be a quick one from me today. I have a much deserved, much needed half a day off work which means I have to cram a bunch of work in before lunch time. Prof has the day off, so once again you get a whole lotta ME!
Red Sox 4, Brewers 1 – Mookie Betts blasted a 3 run ding dang dong in the 9th to take the win.
Royals 6, Rays 0 – Jason Vargas is the sole bright spot on a pretty terrible Royals team. Vargas went 7 giving up just 3 hits and lowered his league leading ERA to 1.01.
Astros 3, Yankees 2 – Jake Marisnick gunned down Jacoby Ellsbury at home to end the game in thrilling fashion.
Mariners 2, Blue Jays 7 – Toronto was powered by a 5 run 5th inning which included a Steve Pearce 3 run homer.

Twins 7, White Sox 6 – 4 in the first and 2 in the second and the Twins held on for the victory. Eduardo Escobar, Miguel Sano, and Brian Dozier all went yard.
Dodgers 7, Rockies 10 – All 10 Rockie runs came in the first 4 innings, and then the bullpen came in and attempted a meltdown.
Pirates 1, D’Backs 2 – Zack Greinke, whom we haven’t heard much out of in a long time took a no-hitter into the 8th. Zack struck out 11 and picked up his 4th win on the season.
Tigers 7, Angels 1 – The Rangers split squad dominated the Angels with a show of power early on. Justin Upton picks up the 3 run jack in the first followed by Andrew Romine picking up a 2 run shot in the second. Michael Fulmer took that and went to work holding the Angels to 1 run over 7 innings.
Reds 3, Giants 2 – This is loss number 24 for the Giants who are already 11 games out of the division sporting a horrific .333 win ratio.
Orioles, Nationals – PPD
