We had some high scoring games last night! Let’s talk about them. I’m adding links to games I don’t really have the time (or, let’s be honest, the energy) to recap. My sleep schedule is wack. Insomnia is the worst.
Also, do yourself a favor and read up on the Mr. Met scandal from last night. He flipped someone off. But how can you flip someone the bird if you have no middle finger? This is mascot-ist!
Braves 1, Angels 2 – Haunted by the ghosts of Braves past. Eric Young Jr. and Bud Norris, by their powers combined, rallied the Angels to a win.
Astros 17, Twins 6 – Well, darn it all. Stex, I’m happy for you. Happy, I feel your pain. But man, did the Astros have themselves a time in the Twin Cities last night. George Springer was a ridiculous beastly man, reaching base in all six of his plate appearances plus hitting a monster home run (and another to spare!). Other home runs included Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman, Marwin Gonzalez, and El Oso Blanco! Holy cow!
Phillies 2, Marlins 10 – Big Justin Bour hit two home runs last night. Why do I think of the old Burger King commercial every time I write that? Big….buckin’….chicken. I know, you guys, I embarrass myself, too. Anyway, even though the Feesh whooped up on Philly no one was there to see it. Apparently the actual head count of folks lining up at Macondo Banana Massacre Field was less than 2,000! What the ever loving hell, man? Did they find out that Jeb! is out and now they won’t get bought out by Jeets and Co?
Brewers 7, Mets 1 – Hello again, Eric Thames! Ren, help me sing the Eric! lalalalala song! The unexpected Brewers slugger broke out of his slump and hit a monster home run at Citi Field off Jacob deGrom. Keon Broxton also hit a home run, and deGrom got lit up something fierce. Oh, and Michael Conforto hit an RBI double. #FreeConforto!
Rockies 0, Mariners 5 – Even despite two errors, this was all Seattle. Good start from James Paxton.
Nationals 3, Giants 1 – Mad Max Scherzer fanned eleven. If they keep playing this way then Royce Harpler’s three game suspension is merely just a rest for the upcoming summer grind.
Yankees 4, Orioles 10 – The Orioles came to play! Adam Jones and Chris Davis both hit multi-run homers and my future boyfriend Mark Trumbo added to the RBI tally with a two run double of his own. Kevin Gausman was flirting with disaster, but he got out of a jam time and again.
Red Sox 4, White Sox 1 – The Laundry Battles wages on. The Panda came through with a good day at the plate and Boston made the best out of a quality start from Drew Pomeranz. A bad day for Big Pelf…I mean, Mike Pelfrey. The poor guy can’t win for losing. He was doing really well! But then Chicago’s bullpen happened.
Dodgers 1, Cardinals 2 – Oh, hey, Dexter Fowler! He hit a home run to edge St. Louis over the Dodgers and split the series.
