Scouts: Prof has the night off, so today it’s just you and me folks. You’d better buckle up, it’s gonna be a wild one!
Phillies 5, Mariners 4 – Scouts: Edwin Diaz picks up the blown save by allowing Tommy Joseph to tie the game in the 9th with a homer, and then watching as Andrew Knapp singled in the winning run.
Rockies 3, Giants 5 – Scouts: Jae-Gyun Hwang picked up his first career hit with a homer as the Rockies got swept by the lowly San Francisco Giants.
Cubs 4, Nationals 8 – Scouts: Not a good night to be a Cubs fan. John Lackey got hit tits lit up giving up 8 runs on 9 hits in just 5.1 innings. To make matters worse Kris Bryant had to be helped off the field in the 5th with an ankle injury. Stephen Strasburg also struck out 13.
Rays 2, Pirates 6 – Scouts: Down 1-0 in the first, the Pirates bounced back and picked up 4 in the frame to take the lead for the rest of the way. Josh Bell got his 15th homer on the year.
Orioles 0, Blue Jays 4 – Scouts: Any game where the O’s give up fewer than 5 runs is a win in my book. Marcus Stroman was on fire shutting out the O’s over 7.2.
Royals 8, Tigers 2 – Scouts: Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas went back-to-back in the 4th dooming the Tigers.
Brewers 3, Reds 4 – Scouts: Scott Schebler robbed Stephen Vogt in the second in what was eventually the difference maker in this one. Billy Hamilton did Billy Hamilton things. First he walked, then stole second, then stole third, then scored on an infield hit.
Twins 4, Red Sox 1 – Scouts: Adalberto Mejia worked himself out of several jams to hold the Sox at bay. Boston left 11 stranded and went 0-10 with RISP.
Mets 8, Marlins 0 – Scouts: Today I remembered that Steven Matz was still a thing. He did some work against the Marlins, inducing 10 groundball outs and 4 K’s in 7 short innings.
Rangers 3, Indians 5 – Scouts: Trevor Bauer gave up just 1 over 6.2 innings as the Rangers had to just sit back and admire the pretty, pretty curveball.
Yankees 12, White Sox 3 – Scouts: It would seem the Yanks were a little miffed about getting knocked out of first place and decided to take that out on the White Sox in a rain filled evening. Aaron Judge went deep again. So did Didi Gregorious.
Athletics 8, Astros 11 – Scouts: Well, it wasn’t very pretty, but the Astros managed to hold off the A’s
Cardinals 4, Diamondbacks 3 – Scouts: Almost like the Cardinals of old. Wainwright kept the damage low, Yadier Molina knocked in two, and Trevor Rosenthal picked up the save.
Angels 3, Dodgers 2 – Scouts: Absolute insanity! The Dodgers came back to tie the game with homers in both the 8th and 9th innings, only to throw the game way in the bottom of the 9th. First Ben Revere reached on a fielding error, then he took second on a wild pitch. After that, he scored on a third strike to Cameron Maybin after the ball got away from Grandal, who then promptly threw the ball into right field.
Braves 4, Padres 7 – Scouts: Oh Bartolo, we really miss you! His ERA has swelled to 8.14 after giving up 6 runs in 4 innings and left the game with his future in serious doubt. Will the Barves finally put this old horse to pasture, or is there still a little magic left in the air to allow for just one more shining performance?
