Prof: Random question – are y’all hot dog or burger people? Let us know in the comments. For the record – hot dogs are disgusting and burgers must have cheese and mustard. Ketchup is the devil. Pickle relish is sometimes good. Bratwursts are better than either of them.
Scouts: Prof, we can no longer be friends. Ketcup is AMAZING! Also Relish is disgusting and should be abolished from this planet.
Red Sox 4, Nationals 3 – Scouts: You know things just aren’t going the Nats way when Rick Porcello is smoking three-run doubles off old crazy eyes Max Scherzer.
Braves 5, Yankees 3 F/11 – Prof: Only 90s kids remember when the Braves and Yankees would meet up over and over again in the World Series. If they keep playing like this, then the kids of today will experience this, too. It was back and forth all game long, bringing excitement and heart attacks to both fanbases. The amazing Ronald Acuña Jr. went 2-5 but made it count, with an RBI double and the game winning two run homer.
White Sox 3, Reds 5 – Prof: The Reds can’t stop, won’t stop. After a solo Scott Schebler dinger, the Reds went six more innings in the lead before Chicago scored three runs. Then in the eighth, Cincinnati exploded for four runs and the come from behind win.
Rays 2, Marlins 3 F/10 – Scouts: See Miami! This is what I’m talking about when I say be competitive! You give the Rays a little bit of hope by allowing them to tie it up in the 9th, just so you can snatch it way with a walk-off single in the 10th.
Tigers 3, Blue Jays 2 F/10 – Prof: El Tigres getting saved thanks to Joe Churches (copyright 2018 Historio). Yes, it was Jose Iglesias who broke the tie in extras after a blown save. Two wins in a row. While most people would say that’s not a big deal, please consider that Detroit is coming off an eleven game losing streak. Two dubs is massive.
Twins 5, Brewers 6 F/10 – Scouts: I’ve never quite seen a team to just not enough to win every game like the Twins seem to do. Maybe it’s me but they seem to have a habit of playing JUST under the level of their opponent. Anyways, Travis Shaw tied it up in the 9th with a sac fly, and Brad Miller walked it off with a walk in the 10th.
Spiders 9, Royals 3 – Prof: Corey Kluber had a bit of a hiccup in the first inning, allowing two runs, but righted the ship afterwards, and gained the win. Francisco Lindor hit three-run home runs in the fourth and sixth innings. Fun fact – Frankie drove in Tyler Naquin and Rajai Davis both times.
Giants 2, Rockies 5 – Prof: Obviously I am happy because my Braves won, but even if the Yankees had reigned supreme, it would still be a great day, because Madison Bumgarner got the loss in this game against Colorado. Oh, everything’s coming up Milhouse! For the Rockies, Nolan Arenado went 2-3, and walked in an RBI in the seventh.
Cardinals 6, D’backs 3 – Scouts: Yadier Molina homered and picked up three RBI’s as Arizona is suddenly finding themselves in the middle of a funk.
Pirates 1, Dodgers 17 – Scouts: Holy CATS! This game was an absolute slaughter. Matt Kemp who we were just discussing yesterday, had the best performance of his life, tallying 5 hits, 4 RBI, and three-run homer and was a triple shy of the cycle.
