FANTABULOUS FRIDAY, FI FAM! I am SUPER looking forward to the weekend. When you have a day off and then it’s month end… whew. Cray. When I’m stressed out and need to relax, I like to listen to old music. Not classic rock. I am talking some old chestnuts. Today, it’s the Ink Spots. Anyway, let’s get our scores on, y’all.
Brewers 2, Mets 1 – No rest for the wicked. Or the not wicked, even. Eric Thames went weeks without a home run, hit a monster the other day, and then yesterday had to take a “random” pee test. Sure, Jan. But anyway, the Brewers are getting some great work out of Eric Sogard and Corey Knebel. I’m very happy for Knebel, I always liked watching him pitch when I would go to Miller Park. In Mets news, Mr. Met got in trouble for flipping off someone, and I call shenanigans because that’s the most fire and passion that anyone in a Met uniform has shown not named Michael Conforto. Did anyone think they would suck this badly?
Athletics 0, Indians 8 – THE KLUBOT IS BACK. I REPEAT. THE KLUBOT HAS RECHARGED. Butter doesn’t melt in this man’s mouth, and having him back on the bump really energized the Magical Land of Cleve. Oh, and Oakland had three errors. Woof. If they were a lame horse, they’d get shot.
Yankees 12, Blue Jays 2 – Yo Soy Gary hit two home runs, Aaron Hicks had six RBI, and the Yankees demoralized the Blue Jays at home.
Twins 4, Angels 2 – Kole Calhoun hit two home runs, but it wasn’t enough. It nearly was, but Minnesota came from behind and turned a nifty triple play in the process.
Dodgers 0, Cardinals 2 – You guys know what I’m about. You know what I like. Prof likes pitchers. Prof likes when pitchers bat. And Prof likes when pitchers go yard! The pitcher in question was my favorite Cardinal, the one and only Adam Wainwright.
Waino started out lousy, let’s be real here. But after a really rough spot, he finished out May really strong.
Rockies 6, Mariners 3 – Really bad news for Seattle. Yo Gallardo only lasted three innings and got his butt handed to him, but that’s not the worst part. Nelly Cruz and Jean Segura were both injured. That’s a sock in the gut for a team that’s just now getting their, well, sea legs.
Diamondbacks 3, Marlins 2 – Zack Greinke went seven, hit a single, and turned a double play, and threw shade at the Feesh afterwards. As the kids say, your fave could never.
Red Sox 5, Orioles 7 – Mark Trumbo hit a home run. Well, Chris Davis, Adam Jones, and Jonathan Schoop did as well. But I’m writing this here recap, and it’s a Trumbo Appreciation Zone up in here. S‘wonderful. S’marvelous. Bless you for being an angel. :p Oh, yeah, there’s other people on the team, sorry. Um… Wade Miley pitched really great, too, allowing only one run in seven innings.
