Scouts: I am so very ready for this long weekend coming up ahead. It’s been a very long past few weeks and I’m ready for the break and the rest. You know, It’s quite amazing how much longer the season feels when your team is a gigantic dumpster fire and all you can do is sit back and watch it burn.
White Sox 4, Yankees 5 – Scouts: A three run comeback that was punctuated by a walk-off home-run by Neil Walker.
Nationals 5, Phillies 4 – Scouts: Max Scherzer struggled for the first time in a long time, but that’s okay because his good buddy Anthony Rendon bailed him out with a two-run shot in the 9th, and the Nats are suddenly looking like the team we all thought they were.
Blue Jays 5, Orioles 12 – Scouts: I’m not really sure what is going on here, the O’s are scoring runs in bunches and winning ball games. When Chris Davis of all people goes 3-5 with 3 RBI, you know you done messed up.
Marlins 7, Red Sox 8 – Scouts: Oh Miami. You just had to go and Met things up. Score 5 in the 8th to take a 3 run lead, you give that up immediately. Score another in the 9th to take another lead, and an fielding error ends the ballgame.
Brewers 7, Reds 9 – Scouts: Anthony DeSclafani picked up the win despite a shaky performance, but it was just enough to hold back the Brewers who really can’t afford to lose games like this one.
Twins 1, Spiders – Scouts: Carlos Carrasco struck out 11 on his way to his 16th win on the season.
Rays 5, Braves 9 – Scouts: The Braves picked up 4 in the 5th and 4 more in the 8th to get themselves a 4.5 game lead in the East. The win ended a 8 game winning streak for the Rays.
Dodgers 8, Rangers 4 – Scouts: Manny Machado continues to be worth everything the Dodgers paid for him and more, driving in 4 runs en route to the Dodger’s 4th consecutive victory.
Oakland 4, Astros 3 – Scouts: Man this has been a great series. Oakland moves to a game and a half of Houston when they broke open the tie in the 9th off a ground-rule double by Nick Martini.
Tigers 2, Royals 6 – Scouts: Maybe the Tigers should have called out to work sick today. Jakob Junis pitched a complete game, moving him to 4-0 against the Tigers, who just can’t seem to figure him out.
Pirates 2, Cardinals 5 – Scouts: Jack Flaherty is still pushing for that Rookie of the Year vote, giving up just a single run over 7 dominant innings.
Rockies 3, Angels 2 – Scouts: Kyle Freeland has been quietly having a Cy Young type season. The lefty picked up his 12th win, lowering his ERA to 2.90, best among lefty starters in the NL.
Mariners 1, Padres 2 – Scouts: Seattle gave it a pretty good run, but they are now 5.5 games out of the Wild Card, and 7 back of the division, and losing to teams like the Padres sure isn’t helping matters. Jacob Nix dominated over 8.1 innings allowing just a solo home run to Nelson Cruz.
D-Backs 0, Giants 1 – Scouts: This one remained scoreless until Bruce Bochy tabbed Gorkys Hernandez to pinch-hit in the 9th. With Steven Duggar on second, Gorkys delivered a walk-off single to left to put this one to bed.
Mets 1, Cubs 1 – SUSPENDED – Scouts: Here is one you don’t see every day. This one was all tied up in the 10th, when the rains came. After a 53 min delay, it was decided to just pack it all up, and pick up where we left off tomorrow. Gameplay stopped on a 2-0 count to Michael Conforto with 0 outs.
