Prof: In other sports news (I know, I know), I’d like to give a hearty congrats to the St. Louis Blues for winning their first Stanley Cup in team history. My mom and her brothers grew up in St. Louis, and they are Cardinals fans. (I am not.) If they liked hockey, they’d probably be Blues fans. I’ve always had a soft spot for the team because even when they were decent, they were the underdogs. I’m a sucker for an underdog story. I hope StL enjoys this championship, because I would never in a million years send the same congrats for those birds on the bat. Haha. Today my choice for music is English emocore band Bring Me the Horizon.
Scouty is out today, on the IL.
Scouts: Sorry all, I’m feeling pretty under the weather today. I hope to be back tomorrow. Thanks to Prof for getting the post up.
Reds 7, Spiders 2 – Prof: Hey, remember when I said that Nick Senzel is shaping up to be Cincinnati’s MVP? I wasn’t lying. The powerhouse rookie joined veteran Sassy Canadian Joey Votto for back to back home runs right from the jump. The Reds got two more homers from their squad and the Tragical Land of Cleve loses at home.
Cubs 10, Rockies 1 – Prof: Cole Hamels is a nice looking gentleman. Dark, handsome, GQ looking dude. But on this day? It wasn’t just his face that looked good – Hamels was dead sexy on the bump and at the plate as well. What’s that, you say? Yes… Cole Hamels not only went seven innings and struck out nine, but he also had two RBI singles. When pitchers help themselves out, Lord, it gives me the vapors. Oh, and Javy Baez and Baby Babe Ruth both went yard.
Blue Jays 8, Orioles 6
Pirates 7, Braves 8 F/11
Tigers 3, Royals 2 – Prof: Same crap, different day. Once again in this series, a contest ends up 3-2. Granted, yesterday it was the Royals winning, but on Wednesday it was Detroit. Miggy’s sac fly RBI got the party started for Los Tigres. Shane Greene bags his 20th save.
Brewers 6, Astros 3 F/14 – Prof: Verlander struck out fifteen, gets a no decision. Baseball.
Mariners 9, Twins 6 F/10
Padres 2, Giants 4
Athletics 6, Rays 2 – Prof: A kid named Ramon Laureano had himself a day. First, he had an RBI single, then he hit his first career grand slam to rally Oakland to victory. Liam Hendriks got the win after holding off Tampa in late innings.
Rangers 3, Red Sox 4 – Prof: Mookie Betts won this game in the weirdest way – a bases loaded walk. In the ninth inning. Who does that? Guys, that’s just dumb.
Diamondbacks 2, Phillies 0
Cardinals 0, Marlins 9 – Prof: What kind of wizardry happened down in Miami? A rookie pitcher went seven innings and shut out a solid St. Louis lineup. Not only did Jordan Yamamoto win his MLB debut, but Garrett Cooper (who?) hit a grand slam. The Feesh are no longer on the skids, as this breaks a six game losing streak.
