He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for 5/23/19

Prof: Girl Power Friday is upon us! Next week, your favorite neighborhood Prof will be posting the Monday post a little late, but I’ll make it up to you all with some extra special tuneage, etc. So let’s get started on today’s music… one of my favorite groups of the 90’s and 2000s, the Dixie Chicks.

Scouts: I just wanted to briefly wish everyone a fantastic holiday weekend.  I will be taking the day off for some much needed R&R, so you’ll have Prof all to yourselves.  Please treat her well and I’ll see you all again on Tuesday!

 


White Sox 4, Astros 0Scouts: Luis Giolito was the main man in this one, pitching a complete game shut out against the Astros, allowing just 4 hits.

Nationals 4, Mets 6Prof: Man. Carlos Gomez’s shoe flew off, and then he hit a three run homer in the eighth inning to bring New York back from behind. Davey Martinez was ejected, and I don’t really have a lot of info on this development, to be honest. We can go to our roving Nats reporter, SomeGuy, for the deets. Once again, we have super rookie Pete Alonso giving the Mets a lift. I think the rookie of the year will be a hard fought battle between Mr. Alonso and…

 

Braves 5, Giants 4 F/13Prof: Austin Riley. He’s a beautiful badass. This dude just got called up last week and he’s already mashed five homers, including one yesterday. Riley was also the difference maker in the thirteenth inning, with an RBI single to drive home Dansby Swanson.

 

Rockies 6, Pirates 14Prof: No moonshot into the river, but still four dingers in this whoopin’. Josh Bell went 3-4 and Colin Moran went 3-5.

Yankees 6, Orioles 5Scouts: Sigh.  Baltimore stormed back in the 8th to tie it up, only to walk in the winning run in the 9th.

 

Red Sox 8, Blue Jays 2Scouts: Ryan Weber pitching in just his 4th game this year, making he first start on the season provided Boston a much needed 6 innings of 3 hit ball, giving the offense enough time to get into the Toronto bullpen.

 

Marlins 5, Tigers 2Scouts: Miami’s on a bit of a roll lately.  After making it look like they were going to lose a 2-0 shutout, Garrett Cooper stepped up big with a Grand Slam in the 9th.  I’d say it left Tiger faithful in shock, but let’s be honest, watching a bullpen blow a sure win is nothing new in Detroit.

Phillies 9, Cubs 7Prof: Aaron Nola looked sharp. Jon Lester, not so much. The Phightin’ Phils beat Chicago in the Friendly Confines to split the series. Jean Segura’s two run homer made the difference in this game.

 

Twins 16, Angels 7Prof: Wow! Eight home runs from Minnesota, and three from Los Angeles of Anaheim of Southern California. So many homers. But let’s talk about the  Twins. First of all, they absolutely destroyed Matt Harvey – eight earned runs in 2 and 2/3 innings. I imagine the former Dark Knight getting a Vaudeville hook. Did you know that these eight home runs ties a franchise record for most dingers in a game?

 

Rays 7, Spiders 2Prof: The Rays have put several rabbit’s feet in their uniforms, because they really got a little lucky in this game. Tampa gets a three run, inside-the-park home run brought to them by some lousy fielding and Kevin Kiermaier getting a Mario-style Power Up.

  1. The Nats got another good effort from {STARTING_PITCHER} and enough hits, especially from {PLAYER} and {OTHER_PLAYER}, to take a lead into the late innings, but the bullpen, this time in the form of {RELIEVER}, failed to hold the lead, and the Nats lost again.

    Davey Martinez got ejected following the ejection of Howie Kendrick, who was tossed after being called out on a checked swing; Howie didn’t think he swung, and wanted the home plate umpire to check with his colleagues, but he home plate ump was having none of that, and demonstrated that he would brook no challenge to his authority from mere mortals such as a player and a manager.
