Scouts: I will continue Prof’s Girl Power Friday tradition with a little Janis Joplin.
Yankees 12, Rays 1 – Scouts: New Yorks bats were hot last night! 4 homers! Let’s count them. There was Miguel Andujar in the 1st, Luke Voit in the 6th, Giancarlo Stanton in the 6th, and Giancarlo Stanton again in the 9th. CC Sebathia threw one of the most expensive pitches in history when he got himself tossed for intentionally plunking Jesus Secure, leaving Sebathia just two innings shy of a 500,000 bonus for innings pitched.
Phillies 3, Rockies 5 – Scouts: Colorado wins another big one, again off multiple homers. David Dahl has now homered in 4 straight games. Also going deep were Trevor story and Gerardo Parra. Colorado, who’s magic number has been reduced to 2, has now win 7 in a row, at the absolute most important time.
Pirates 0, Cubs 3 – Scouts: The Cubs really needed this one, reducing their magic number to 3, giving them a one game lead over the Brewers, who had the day off. David Bote provided the runs with a two RBI triple, while Jon Lester shut the Pirates down over 6 solid innings.
Braves 1, Mets 4 – Scouts: Jason Vargas was dominant in his final outing allowing just three hits over 7 innings. The Braves will have a few more warm up games, and then things will get very real, very fast.
Tigers 3, Twins 9 – Scouts: Willians Astudillo and Tyler Austin provided most of the spark, combining for 7 of the teams 9 RBI’s.
Spiders 1, Royals 2 F/10 – Scouts: Salvador Perez walked it off with a single in the 10th. Glenn Sparkman provided the the Royals the opportunity by allowing just 1 run over 5 innings.
Rangers 3, Mariners 0 – Scouts: Ariel Jurado shut out the Mariners for 6 strong innings, allowing just 2 hits, before giving way for the bullpen to come in and finish the job.
Houston, Baltimore – PPD
