He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for 9/5/18

Prof: We’re going back, back, back with today’s music choices. Side note, who else thinks “Tales of Brave Ulysses” sounds an awful lot like “White Room”?


Angels 9, Rangers 3Scouts: Doctors recommended that Shohei Ohtani receive Tommy John surgery to repair his right elbow.  So how did he respond?  By hitting a pair of homers en route to a 4 hit performance.


Cubs 6, Brewers 4Scouts: Hot at just the right time, the Cubs have a 4 game lead after winning a crucial game against the Brewers.  Daniel Murphy supplied the offense, with three hits, including a lead-off homer to get things started right.


Twins 1, Astros 9Scouts: Alex Bregman smacked his 29th homer, part of a 5 RBI night that helped the Astros pick up their 12 series sweep of the season.

Giants 3, Rockies 5Scouts: Trevor Story went on a tear, jacking three homers, including one 505 foot monster blast, and one that literally knocked him off his own feet.


Cardinals 7, Nationals 6Prof: Ayyyyyyyyyye, we got hitters over here! But don’t forget Miles Mikolas, who gets another win and has fully redeemed himself from only a few years ago. It’s like he was a different man. Anyway, Matt Adams, newly reunited with the Cardinals, hit two homers against his former team.

Reds 2, Pirates 3Prof: It should come to no surprise that the losing pitcher in this contest was Homer Bailey, a man who has only one win on the season and I swear that one was a fluke. Actually, that’s really harsh. He honestly didn’t do that much worse than Jameson Tallion, the Pirates hurler. It’s just that there was one more RBI for the Bucs than for the Reds.


Rays 3, Blue Jays 10Prof: Breaking News! Aaron Sanchez – not the famous taco expert – earned a W for the first time in three months! The Rays were pecked to death in the first inning, where Toronto hit seven against Tyler Glasnow. The unkindest cut was made by Aledmys Diaz, who hit a three run homer in that first inning.

Phillies 1, Marlins 2Scouts: Man, is Philly really blowing it.  Not that long ago, they were in control, looking down at everyone, and now they are 3 games out of first and losing to a team that they really should be whooping up on.  Sandy Alcantara went 7 shutout, 2 hit innings, leaving the Phillies searching for answers.


Mets 7, Dodgers 3Prof: I’m always surprised when the Dodgers cough one up, because it’s always to the most unusual suspects. It was a fruitful night for New York, with Kevin Plawecki, Brandon Nimmo, Michael Conforto, and Amed Rosario doing the heavy lifting.

Tigers 10, White Sox 2Scouts: A pretty meaningless game in the standings, but at least our resident Histo got to have some fun.  Jeimer Candelario, Mikie Mahtook, Ronny Rodriguez, and JcCoby Jones all homered for the Tigers.  Every starter had at least one hit.

Red Sox 9, Braves 8Prof: Dan Winkler? A.J. Minter?


The Braves had this game in their hands until the eighth inning, when Boston stopped being polite and started getting real. (Please tell me at least one of y’all get that.) Six runs against a worn out and at times bewildered Atlanta team, which led to the Red Sox’s biggest come from behind win of the season.


Royals 1, Spiders 3Prof: The Klubot is now head and shoulders above the rest, having now won eighteen games, the best win-loss in the majors thus far. Kluber also went 6 2/3 innings and struck out ten. Smooth sailing for the baseball robot. Your offensive player of the game was Jason Kipnis, who went 2-3.

Yankees 2, Athletics 8Scouts: Wow, Luis Severino and the Yankees got absolutely steamrolled by the A’s.  In what was a potential Wild Card preview, the Yankees have got to have some fears about their entire situation.  Severino gave up 6 runs on 6 hits in 2.2 innings in what was one of his worst outings on the season.

Orioles 2, Mariners 5Scouts: The day after a clubhouse brawl that sprawled into the hallway, the Mariners were smacking back to back homers and laughing and having a good old time.  Cruz and Span were responsible for the power, and MIke Leake was able to keep the O’s dangerous bats under control.

  1. Regarding the Cream tunes, yes, those two have the descending chord thingy in common. Plus, there’s only twelve notes–only so many ways you can combine them…

    At least Aaron (not the taco guy) Sanchez is doing alright

    1. I know, it’s just funny. It’s like they plagerized themselves. But then again Dave Matthews has been writing the same song for about 30 years so *shrug


  2. I think I’ll get this out now so I don’t post a downer on Saturday that no one wants to comment on because they don’t want to be insensitive and don’t know what to say.

    Erick died at 5 AM this morning.

    And an hour before that my bi polar son got started watching a movie, ordered his wife to make him breakfast. Yesterday he tried to order her to move into her parents house so he could have their house to himself. This matches the pattern of the previous episodes and seems to be related to a med change implemented about a month ago. Jesus.

    1. You’re right, Idk what to say (I never do) and even when I do it doesn’t come out right–just look at my posts!–but please keep posting if you can, I really do like your updates.


      1. Disagree. You write pretty well.

        Update: a couple of hours ago I texted my son Tony who I love more than fucking anything suggesting that we watch sundays Viking game together. So far no response. you see when his delusions kicked in in 2015 and 2017 the first stage was I hate my wife and the second stage was my father is a central figure in a conspiracy against me disguising my true parentage. I think a ‘crisis intervention’ this weekend is as likely as not. and there’s a good chance that it will just be the first of several, like the last times, before there is a resolution.

    2. all of you throw a dry towel over your shoulder. like the last times I feel like i’m going into a pitch black tunnel because I don’t know what is going to happen and what i’m going to do when it does. but Eric’s cousin Ralph will be here tomorrow like he was today and was in 2015 and 2017. He is my torch.
