Sorry gang, I’m absolutely slammed at work today, so there won’t be much of a preamble today, and my recaps are going to be short and to the point. Please help fill in the blanks in the comment section below! Because I’m extra lazy, today we are featuring the top 3 on 2017’s billboard list. Yeah, I don’t know who the fuck any of these kids are either.
Angels 3, Nationals 2 – Scouts: Kole Calhoun hit a 2 run shot in the 6th that put LA ahead for good.
Giants 1, Marlins 8 – Scouts: Giancarlo Stanton’s home run streak ended at 7 games but the Marlins still managed to beat up on the Giants.
Pirates 6, Brewers 7 – Scouts: The Brew Crew hit 5 homers including a pair from Keon Broxton. Manny Pina hit the go ahead in the 8th.
Royals 7, Athletics 6 – Scouts: Alex Gordon singled in Alcides Escobar in the top of the 9th to take the win.
Orioles 6, Mariners 7 – Scout: It’s get-away-day for the O’s and at this point I’m pretty sure they are ready to get back to their side of the country. It wasn’t a terrible west coast trip, but I for one will be happy to be able to watch a game that doesn’t start past my bedtime. Oh yea. Ubaldo Jiminez sucked again.
Phillies 0, Padres 3 – Scouts: Will Myers knocked in a run, stole one, and that was all Clayton Richard needed as he threw a 3 hit shutout.
Rays 2, Blue Jays 3 – Scouts: Tampa gets right back on that losing train as Marcus Stroman kept them to 2 runs over 6.1 innings.
Yankees 5, Mets 3 – Scouts: There’s been a lot of chatter about Aroldis Chapman in New York the past few days, so much so people almost forgot about Aaron Judge. Judge reminded them who he was knocking the 3rd homer ever into the third deck in Citi Field’s left field.
Cardinals 4, Red Sox 5 – Scouts: Mookie Betts came up big with 2 down in the 9th, delivering a two run double to walk it off.
Reds 6, Cubs 7 – Scouts: Joey Votto did not reach base twice falling just shy of tieing Ted Williams record. Anthony Rizzo hit a first inning grand slam.
Tigers 6, Rangers 12 – Scouts: Just ouch. Painful way to finish a three game sweep.
D-Backs 5, Astros 9 – Scouts: Arizona looked primed for a come back with 3 in the 8th, but Houston was having none of that responding with 4 of their own.
Braves 2, Rockies 17 – Scouts: Mike Foltynewicz was hit fucking hard, giving up 8 runs in 3.1 innings. Trevor Story ended up with 6 RBI and two other rockies had 4 each.
White Sox 4, Dodgers 6 – Scouts: Yasiel Puig, who you don’t hear anyone bitching about anymore completed a 9th inning rally with a two-run double that brought the Dodgers back. Seriously, can no one stop this team?
Indians, Twins – PPD – “I’m only happy when it rains.” (There’s your rain out music for the day.)
