He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for 7/22/19

Scouts:  Looks like Marvel has announced Phase 4, and there’s a lot to chew on for long time comic fans.  There’s a ton of new movies, shows, and specials that will be on the new Disney streaming service.  Personally I’m looking forward most to “What If…?”  Which was always a series of fun comics that lived outside the bounds of normal cannon.  It proposed a lot of fun scenarios such as What If Venom merged with the Punisher, and What If The Hulk had Bruce Banner’s brain.  (Something at the time was unthinkable.)  It’s something that’s a nice departure from the franchise, where they can just throw caution to the wind and have fun.  What was your favorite announcement from this year’s Comic Con?

 

 

 

 


Red Sox 9, Rays 4Prof: Boston was able to find their mojo again, getting seven runs in the third inning, including three home runs. Andrew Benintendi went 3-5 with a ribbie and JD Martinez had four RBI of his own.

Cardinals 6, Pirates 5 F/10Prof: All you really need to know about this was that these teams scored more in extras than in regulation, and Paul Goldschmidt hit a grand slam in the tenth inning to save the day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spiders 7, Blue Jays 3Prof: Jason Kipnis, Jose Ramirez, and Orlando Mercado all had good days at the plate, with Mercado going 2-4 with 2 RBIs himself. Mike Clevinger went seven innings and struck out seven. Imagine my surprise when I saw that out of the Magical Bullpen of Cleve emerged Tyler Clippard! I thought he was out of the league!

Reds 6, Brewers 5Scouts: The Brewers took one to the chin today as Eugenio Suarez took the game into his hands and made his mark.  Suarez smoked a two run homer in the 7th and once again in the 9th to stun the Brewers who thought they had it wrapped up when they scored 4 in the 8th.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marlins 1, White Sox 9Prof: Abreu! Moncada! and James McCann (and Ryan Goins)! All of these White Sox stars (and Ryan Goins) homered against the Feesh last night. Abreu and Moncada also had RBI singles and doubles, too. Ivan Nova threw his ninth career complete game, and his first since 2017. Congrats, man!

Athletics 1, Astros 11Prof: It’s a tale of two pitchers in Houston. The first is Gerrit Cole, currently 11-5, who went seven innings, struck out eleven, and was helped out by an onslaught of big time moonshots from his brethren. On the other hand, we have the saddest boy, Homer Bailey, who lived up to his name by giving up three homers and only lasted two innings. Don’t worry, Mr. Bailey, you’ll always have two no-hitters to your name.

 

 

 

 

Yankees 6, Twins 8 – Scouts: Minnesota reminded people they aren’t dead just yet, by really putting one over on the Yankees.  The Twins jacked 5 homers, and turned a triple play just because they could.

 

 

 

Orioles 3, Diamondbacks 6Scouts: Fresh off of taking two of three from Boston, Baltimore choked it up against Robbie Ray and the D-Backs.  Former Oriole Adam Jones, whom no one wanted in the off-season went 3-4 with a RBI.

Cubs 4, Giants 5Scouts: The Giants just keep winning.  They are still only a game above .500 but right now they are the hottest team in the league.  Chicago thought they were going to escape with a victory, but San Francisco had other plans launching a hit parade in the 8th to pick up 3 runs.

Rangers 3, Mariners 7Scouts: Time keeps on slipping, slipping for Texas who have now lost 8 straight and are now 6.5 games back from the Wild Card spot.

Rockies, Nationals – PPD (Rain) – makeup date 7/24

  1. The Astros / A’s recap makes me think of the SportsCenter commercial where Kenny Mayne said the line “It must be a Homer, Simpson, cuz the pitcher just said ‘D’oh!'”

    Something is suspicious about the Twins / Yankees score.

  2. I’m running out of pejoratives for this Feesh team. Last night was another one of their roll-over-and-play-dead games.I think they’re still collectively concussed from being flattened by the Bums like that. Four straight losses, five of six, shut out for the fifteenth time on Sunday, and so forth. Twenty six games under the strange attractor and falling fast at 32 feet per sec., per sec. The good news is, that’s as fast as they can fall in Earth’s gravitational field (“Once in a while you can get shown the light / in the strangest of places, if you look at it right” – Grateful Dead).
