Scouts: I’ve given Prof the day off. Lord knows she’s more than deserved it. Most people may not realize that she does the majority of the heavy lifting around here. I mostly just slap a video on it and paste a few links in. So let’s all have a quick Prof appreciation day!
Mets 3, Phillies 6 – Scouts: This one was a big of a snooze fest until the 9th, where the Mets took a 3-1 lead, forcing the Phillies to wake up and score some runs. They did indeed, thanks to a pair of homers, a two run shot by Maikel Franco that tied it up, and the final dagger, the three run shot by Jean Segura that walked it off in spectacular fashion.
Rangers 3, Tigers 1 – Scouts: I honestly did not realize that Texas was 9 games over .500. Every-time I cover them it seems like they are struggling. I guess I need to change my perception of the team. They are actually pretty good! Joey Gallo picked up homers 18 and 19, and Ariel Jurado threw 7 shutout innings.
Rays 5, Twins 2 F/18 – Scouts: If you had fallen asleep 3 or 4 times in this one, well I don’t think anyone could have blamed you. This one went 18 LOOOOOOOONG innings, with a 15 inning stretch where no one scored. Finally, Tampa of Canada ended everyone’s misery and drove in a few runs in the 18th.
Pirates 10, Astros 0 – Scouts: Joe Musgrove was handed 4 runs before he ever stepped on the mount, and he made it 3 more runs than he needed. Musgrove shut out the Houston offense for 6 strong innings, and his bullpen picked up the rest, dominating the usually potent Astros lineup.
Mariners 2, Brewers 4 – Scouts: The BrewCrew got things back on track after a few painful losses, thanks to a 4 run 4th, featuring Orlando Arcia’s 3 run homer.
Braves 7, Cubs 9 – Scouts: Craig Kimbrel did what he was hired to do and shut the door in the 9th, preserving a 2 run lead over the Braves, and ruining Prof Appreciation day. Thanks jerk!
Nationals 8, Marlins 5 – Scouts: This isn’t someguyinva appreciation day, but the Nats went ahead and won anyways, and had quite a bit of fun in doing so. Juan Soto, Matt Adams, Victor Robles, and Kurt Suzuki all homered in the game. I’d say it was a contest, but let’s be real, they were playing the Marlins.
Dodgers 12, Rockies 8 – Scouts: The Dodgers are on another one of their hot streaks, winning their 12 consecutive wins, and scoring 12 runs in celebration. Pitching, was…let’s say not great in this one. In true Dodger fashion, the Dodgers smacked 6 homers in the contest, to Colorado’s 1.
Diamondbacks 5, Giants 1 – Scouts: Alex Young held the Giants to just 1 run over 5 innings and the bullpen held the door shut.
Athletics 3, Angels 8 – Scouts: Would you believe that the Angels haven’t had their full lineup all season long? Well, last night they did and they showed off exactly what they were designed to do. Score runs in bunches. Two in the second an 3 in the third and Oakland never had a chance. Both Kole Calhoun and Shohei Ohtani racked up two-run homers.
