Prof: After a full slate of games yesterday, we kick back and relax a bit today. How do you like to relax? Do you listen to a particular type of music to chill out? Every Saturday evening, I listen to a radio program called “Hot Jazz Saturday Night” which features music from the 1920s-1940s – jazz, swing, big band. Even when it’s at it’s most raucous, it puts me at ease. How about you? Do you have a thing that causes you to slow down and enjoy your day?
Braves 6, Cubs 5 – Prof: The NL leading Atlanta Braves keeps on rolling! Ozzie Albies is now at thirteen homers, Tyler Flowers mashed one, and even old man Joey Bats went in for a dinger, driving in three himself. Julio Teheran continues to be great on road trips. My heart is full.
Rays 2, Royals 1 – Prof: Notable for Adeiny Hechaarria’s sweet break dancing moves against Salvy Perez in the sixth inning! Matt Duffy drove home all the runs for the Tampa Bay Sea Creatures.
Reds 7, Giants 10– Scouts: Andrew McCutchen doubled twice, and Brandon Belt homered the Giants to victory. You know, for a game which featured 17 runs, not a whole heck of a lot of interesting things happened.
Spiders 3, Tigers 6 – Prof: Player of the game was Nico Goodrum. Who? Historio, help! Mike Fiers gets the win.
Rockies 6, Padres 4 – Scouts: Daniel Castro, Noel Cuevas, and Guardo Parra all went deep for the Rockies.
Athletics 6, Red Sox 5 – Prof: So, is Sean Manaea legit? Or is he just lethal against Boston? Last time he matched up against them, he pitched a no-hitter. This time, he went six innings and allowed three earned runs, but still got the win. Khris Davis, Matt Joyce, and Matt Olson went yard.
Astros 1, Angels 2 – Scouts: Andrew Heaney outdueled Lance McCullers Jr, striking out 10 over 8 and holding the Astros to a single run. Justin Upton singled in the winning run for the Halos as the Angels take first place in the division away from the Astros.
Brewers 7, D-Backs 2 – Scouts: Arizona’s bullpen crumbled in this one, giving up 2 in the 7th and another 3 insurance runs in the 9th. Tyler Soladino worked his ass off for the 28th inside-the-park home run in Brewers history.
Mariners 1, Twins 0 – Prof: The game was delayed due to weather for a while, and I guess the players were further delayed for one reason or another because it was a pretty slow outing. Here, in full, is the summary of how the lone run was scored: Segura sacrificed to first, Gordon to third, Segura safe at second on throwing error by first baseman Morrison. Gordon scored on throwing error by first baseman Morrison.
