He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for 5/30/19

Prof: Happy Friday, everyone. Sorry about missing the post yesterday; I wasn’t able to post due to technical difficulties. But I’m here now, so let’s go! Since it’s Girl Power Friday, I’m going with an OG empowerment icon, Joni Mitchell.

 


Brewers 11, Pirates 5Prof: Milwaukee continued their winning ways by creaming Pittsburgh. Mike Moustakas went 4-6 with two homers, Yasmani Grandal went 4-6 with one homer, and Eric Thames had a single homer.

 

Twins 3, Rays 14Prof: So the Rays went HAM in the third and fourth innings – six and five runs a piece. Tommy Pham (2-2), Austin Meadows (2-5), and Avisail Garcia (3-4) were the heroes of the game offensively, while Charlie Morton gets the decisive win.

Royals 4, Rangers 2Scouts: All four of KC’s runs came tanks to the long ball.  First Jorge Soler jacked a three-run homer, then Adalberto Mondesi added an insurance run with a solo shot in the 7th.

 

Spiders 4, White Sox 10Scouts: The White Sox have won 4 straight, as the offense absolutely went to town on Carlos Carrasco and Dan Otero.  Jose Abreu hit a two-run homer and ended the night with 3 RBI’s, while Yonder Alonso and Eloy Jimenez each picked up a pair of RBi’s respectively.

Cardinals 5, Phillies 3Prof: Try as they might, the Phillies wasn’t able to catch up with St. Louis in this more lopsided than advertised game. For the Redbirds, Jedd Gyorko had a two run homer and Jordan Hicks gathers yet another save.

 

Giants 3, Marlins 1Prof: It’s cool to see the name Yastrzemski back in baseball. This time it’s the legendary Hall of Famer’s grandson Mike, who plays in the outfield for San Francisco. Young Mike Yaz hit an RBI single in the seventh inning to begin the Giants’ comeback, capped by a ground rule double from Brandon Crawford in the eighth inning.

Diamondbacks 10, Rockies 11 F/10Prof: So many runs. So many homers. So many back and forths between these two NL West teams, who are running neck and neck in the standings. Colorado wins despite allowing a run due to an error in the eighth inning – Ian Desmond and Nolan Arenado tied it up in the bottom of the eighth, while Daniel Murphy’s RBI single in the tenth gained the W.

Mets 0, Dodgers 2Scouts: The Dodgers don’t always rely on the bat, they also have some pretty decent pitching as well.  MLB.com is calling Hyun-Ji Ryu the left-handed Gregg Maddux, which personally I think might be a bit much, but Ryu is having himself a pretty good season.  Ryu went 7.2 innings of 4 hit ball, shutting out the Mets.  He improved to 8-1 and lowered his ERA to 1.48 on the season.

 

Angels 9, Mariners 3Scouts: Shohei Ohtani was given the day off due to match-up reasons, but that’s ok, the Angels didn’t need him anyways.  Hey, remember when Seattle was the hottest thing around?  With the loss they are now 11 games UNDER .500.  We all knew it wasn’t going to last, but man they are absolutely abysmal right now.

Red Sox, Yankees – PPD

  1. I tried to post prior to the start of tonight’s game pointing out that the ain;’t going nowhere Clevelanders are on the verge of losing second place to the maybe going somewhere White Sox in a year or two. But Word Press fucked up. So I now report to you that the Rays went with the opener thing and the Twins are up 1 – 0 going into the second. With average luck they’re up 2 – 0.

  2. should be 5 -3 Twins. Rays got the disadvantage of the lowest payroll but also have the advantage of a shit hole homefield. The Trop has no place in MLB.
