Prof: ‘Sup, fam. It’s 4th of July. Most of us have the day off, so we’re going to kick back today and be a bit chill. Scout has the rest of the week off, so it’s just you and me, y’all.
Twins 0, Brewers 2 – Who’s the best team in the National League? Your Milwaukee Brewers! The first NL team to 50 wins (although my Braves are breathing down their necks). Eric Thames continues to be a home run monster for the Brew Crew with a two run knock in the fifth.
Rays 9, Marlins 6 F/16 What the heck????? That’s nearly two games’ worth from two awful teams. This sounds like a CIA experiment.
Spiders 6, Royals 4 – Yan Gomes hit a grand slam in the sixth inning to put Cleveland over the top. Rookie pitcher Shane Bieber is now 4-0.
Red Sox 11, Nationals 4 – Wow, the Nationals are on a skid right now, and the Red Sox totally took them to town. Xander Bogaerts hit a three run dinger during a six run fifth inning. The Nats are now at an even .500 but it isn’t looking good to stay above that line if they keep playing this way.
Pirates 3, Dodgers 8 – Six mashed taters for LA, including two for young Max Muncy. Clayton Kershaw gets his first W in almost two and a half months. For Pittsburgh, the only guy who actually earned his paycheck was David Freese, who drove in every run.
