I suddenly feel like the rabbit in Alice in Wounderland. No time, no time, I’m very late for a very important date! Sorry gang, my recaps are going to be quick and to the point today. Extremely busy and due to a massive accident on the highway I was late to get going in the first place.
Braves 5, Marlins 0 – Scouts: Ronald Acuna Jr, extracted revenge the right way. He smacked himself a very satisfying home run. He pimped it. He pimped it good. And he had every damn right to. Of course the coward Jose Urena won’t pitch in this series, which is sort of a favor for the Braves as they can’t afford to have anyone suspended at the moment. Of course, as a result of Acuna’s home run, he was plunked once more, this time by Javy Guerra. The Braves retaliated by plunking Brian Anderson twice. I expect to see more of this.
Royals 3, Rays 4 – Scouts: The Royals did their best Mets impersonation last night, gifting the Rays a walk-off error, completing a four-game sweep.
Reds 1, Cubs 7 – Scouts: Cole Hamels seems to be the only one in Chicago that can pitch these days. He went all 9, allowing just a single run.
Athletics 4, Twins 6 – Scouts: Kohl Stewart pitched his best start yet. The Rookie went just 4.2 but only gave up 3 runs and held back the potent Oakland offense enough to allow the Twins to scrap out a win.
Phillies 2, Nationals 0 – Prof: Huge game for young ace Aaron Nola – eight innings, no earned runs, and nine strikeouts – against the current best pitcher in baseball, Max Scherzer (who wasn’t too shabby himself with 7 innings and 10 K). Philadelphia finally scored in the seventh inning with a two run homer off the bat of Odubel Herrera.
Spiders 0, Red Sox 7 – Prof: A shutout for Boston and a win for David Price. A gigantic six run fifth inning as Adam Plutko got completely shelled. The Red Sox are at 90 wins now, which means they are absolutely getting to 100. Wild.
White Sox 2, Tigers 7 – Scouts: Matthew Boyd threw 6 solid shutout innings for the Tigers.
Giants 3, Mets 1 – Prof: (mutters to herself) I hate MadBum.
Padres 3, Rockies 4 – Scouts: Ian Desmond walked this one off with a two run homer.
