Scouts: So I made the executive decision to give Prof the day off today. Partially as a thank you for covering during my mini-vacation, and partially because there’s literally four games to cover, only two of which are of any interest at all. I will try my best to continue her tradition of Girl Power Friday…with a twist.
Marvel released the first shots of Captain Marvel yesterday. It’s now 100% official. Scott Pilgrim is that guy who used to date Captain Marvel, and had to take out Captain America, and then Superman because of it, with an assist from The Punisher. It’s in Captain Marvel’s honor that we celebrate the music of a great love story.
Padres 6, Reds 2 – Scouts: Francisco Mejia smoked his first two dongs in his first two at-bats to power the Padres over the Reds. That’s quite an impression sir. Hunter Renfroe also hit a homer for Los Padres. Schott Schebler and Mason Williams went yard for the Reds.
Cubs 6, Nats 4 F/10 – Scouts: Well, at least the Nats probably won’t be looking at .500 anytime soon. After doping another one to the Cubs, the Nats are looking up at that magic number. David Bote doubled to drive in the winning run and then scored the bonus run to put this one to bed.
Spiders 9, Blue Jays 4 – Scouts: Francisco Lindor went yard twice as part of a 4-5, 4 RBI evening. The Spiders lowered their magic number to lucky number 7.
Braves 7, D-backs 6 F/10 – Scouts: Atlanta bounced back from a three game sweep vs the Red Sox to take one in extras against the very hot D-backs. The Braves bullpen continues to disappoint, blowing another late lead, but were bailed out by a wild pitch that allowed Dansby Swanson to score.
