Scouts: Summer is beginning to come to a close. Schools are gearing up to start up again, (if they haven’t already). Do you have any last plans you are trying to squeeze in before the kiddos all head back to their day jobs?
Mariners 6, Athletics 7 – Scouts: The comeback that wasn’t. Seattle picked up 5 runs in the final two innings, but ultimately Nelson Cruz struck out with two down and two men on to end the threat.
Giants 5, Dodgers 2 – Prof: Kershaw went 8 innings and had 9 strikeouts. MadBum went six. Both get a no decision.
Marlins 1, Braves 9 (game 1) – Prof: Lookie, lookie, lookie, here comes Touki! Toussaint’s MLB debut was a successful one, while RAJ and Ozzie Albies continue to show that the future is bright.
Marlins 1, Braves 6 (game 2) – Scouts: Folty does it all(ty). All Ronald Acuna Jr. does these days is lead games off with homers, but it was Mike Foltynewicz who took center stage in this one, going 8 innings, allowing just one run, and even driving in one of his own. Freddie Freeman hit his first homer since July 30th and the Braves are looking like the king of the East again.
Mets 8, Yankees 5 – Prof: Jacob deGrom gets a win, Luis Severino gets the loss, and the Mets hit a bunch of home runs. Welcome to Bizzaro New York.
White Sox 5, Tigers 8 – Scouts: Nicholas Castellanos racked up 5 hits including a two run homer in the 7th.
Spiders 10, Reds 3 – Prof: My kiddo Scooter Gennett hit a solo dinger, but alas. No match for the Magical Land of Clevinger (haha).
Diamondbacks 3, Rangers 5 – Scouts: Bartolo Colon reached down in the tank for one more miracle win, this time over coming a two-run first inning to hold off Zack Greinke, the third win against a Cy Young Award winner on the season for Colon.
Blue Jays 1, Royals 3 – Scouts: In the race to the bottom, KC seems to be confused. You aren’t going to beat out Baltimore for the first draft pick if you keep playing games like this fellas!
Angels 6, Padres 3 F/10 – Scouts: Justin Upton flashed the leather, robbing Eric Hosmer of a go-ahead homer, then went right out and hit a two-run shot of his own in the 10th to win the game.
Nationals 6, Cardinals 7 – Prof: Another day, another walk off against the Nats. This time it was Paul DeJong with the ninth inning dagger to the heart.
