Scouts: I won’t be performing any freestyle rap battles here today, all I got for you is some good ole’ fashioned baseball news.
Washington 5, Chicago 0 – Scouts: As Prof mentioned earlier, Steven Strasburg overcame his hang-over, err. I mean “flu-like symptoms” allowing just three hits and working 12 strikeouts over 7 innings. Jake the Snake was good, but not good enough allowing a single run over 4, only to give way to Jon Lester who allowed one over 3.2. That’s when the wheels really came off for the Cubs when Carl Edwards Jr. was tagged for two and Wade Davis for one, all part of a 8th inning Grand Slam by Michael Taylor. Now we get to head back to Washington for the series finale. Who will start for the Nats? Nobody knows!
Indians 2, Yankees 2 – Scouts: Didi Gregorius and C.C. Sebathia put the team on their backs and delivered a stunning, knock out blow to the Indians. Gregorius hit homers in the first and third inning off Corey Kluber who absolutely shit the bed, who gave up three runs in as many innings in the biggest game of his life. All Sebathia did was strike out 9 over 4.1 strong innings before running into trouble in the 5th. The Yankees strong bullpen took over from there and it was lights out for the land of Cleve. Drew Carey is very disappointed this morning.
