Prof: It’s Girl Power Friday and I’m riding solo. I had to work late, so we’re doing an abbreviated version today. Just some ladies who rock today.
Red Sox 7, Blue Jays 4 – The Red Sox won? Why, that’s unpossible! Actually, it’s a bit funny that Boston got the better of former Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz.
Brewers 3, Marlins 2 – Ryan Braun has worn Christian Yelich’s jersey underneath his own for two days now, and even though it’s definitely a placebo effect, give the Brewers something positive to hold onto. Brauny broke the tie with a two run homer in the third inning and the Feesh just couldn’t catch up.
Athletics 3, Astros 2 – The Astros got beaten by Homer Bailey. You can’t make this up, folks.
Reds 11, Mariners 5 – Eugenio Suarez is back at it. Homer #45 and he shows no signs of stopping. Freddy Galvis hit a grand slam, too.
Diamondbacks 1, Mets 11 – Break out the brooms, because New York swept the Gritty Snakes. The Mets hit a team record six home runs in this contest. Juan Lagares hit a grand slam AND a two run homer. My dude Michael Conforto went yard, and my favorite meme victim, JD Davis, did his thing and added an RBI single to the night. (877-RUNS-NOW).
Yankees 10, Tigers 4 (Game 1) – The Yankees can’t have anything nice, you guys. Edwin Encarnacion hit his fourth homer since coming back from IL, but now he’s hurt all over again. Y’all need to be careful with your old men, Yankees!
Yankees 6, Tigers 4 (Game 2) – Aaron Judge hit a two run dinger, and the Yankees just kept it moving.
Cardinals 10, Rockies 3 – SO MANY HOME RUNS. ALL THE HOME RUNS. DEVIL MAGIC, PURPLE DINOSAUR KILLERS, SAVE NOLAN ARENADO!
Braves 5, Phillies 9 – EVEN MORE HOME RUNS!!! Both teams had multiple moonshots, but the Phillies just had more.
Cubs 4, Padres 1 – It’s really great to see Yu Darvish back to relative good health, doing what he does best – shutting people down. Fourteen Ks and only allowed two hits in six innings. His excellent performance (along with Ian Happ, Kris Bryant, and Ben Zobrist at the plate) helped the Cubs remain tied for the second NL wild card slot.
