Scouts: Prof has the day off, so in her absence we are gonna go music wild! Well, about as wild as you can get with chill, mellow acoustical covers.
Giants 3, Phillies 6 – Scouts: After giving up three runs in the first two innings, Vince Velasquez woke, striking out 11 of the final 17 batters he faced, completing a sweep over the Giants.
Red Sox 5, Yankees 4 – Scouts: Unfortunately one of these teams has to win. Thankfully one has to lose! This time it was the Red Sox coming on top, shutting down another Yankee possible comeback and just narrowly escaping with the victory. It was just the second loss in the last 19 games for the Yankees and ended a 8 game winning streak.
Royals 6, Orioles 11 – Scouts: Chris Tillman continues to be beyond terrible giving up a grand slam in the first and raising his ERA to 10.46. (I’ve been saying for two years now he still hasn’t and never will recover from that shoulder injury that took the bite off his now flat fastball. However for once the Orioles remembered they can actually hit the ball. Manny Machado, Trey Mancini, and Adam Jones all homered. I have tickets to tonight’s game for their belated May the 4th Star Wars celebration. I’m sure they will all regress back to a 20 strikeout a game team.
Mariners 9, Blue Jays 3 – Scouts: Kyle Seager who saved James Paxton’s no-hitter the other night, continued his hot streak, this time rocking a pair of homers, including a grand slam in the first.
Braces 9, Marlins 2 – Scouts: Remember Freddie Freeman? He was the OG Braves prospect before all these damn kids came in and tried to take all the glory. Well, he racked up 5 hits on the night and watched teammate Ozzie Albies rock a grand slam as part of a 7 run 6th that put the game way out of reach for the Marlins.
Brewers 5, Rockies 2 – Scouts: Lorenzo Cain set the tone with a lead-off homer and the Brewers followed suit with a 12 hit performance, all off Rockies starter German Marquez.
Nationals 2, D-backs 1 F/11 – Scouts: Tanner Roark’s fantastic start was supported by 4 innings of shutout ball by the Nationals bullpen with bought Matt Adams some time to drive in Trea Turner in the 11th.
Twins 4, Angels 7 – Scouts: Shohei Ohtani who’s been a little quite as of late on the hyp-o-meter crushed a massive solo shot in the 7th to put the finishing touches on the Angel’s 23 win on the season.
Cardinals 2, Padres 1 – Scouts: Tommy Pham has returned, and he returned with a bang scoring both of the Cardinals runs, including the game winner solo home-run in the 5th.
Reds 4, Dodgers 1 – Scouts: Oh LA, this is as bout as bad as it gets son. You scored just one unearned run against the flipping Reds! How the mighty have fallen indeed.
