Scouts: Sorry for the late post folks, I had back to back to back all day meetings today, and I just didn’t have a lot of time to cover all the games.
It was announced today that Mando Season 2 will begin on October 30th, so in honor of that, have some awesome Mando tunes.
Cardinals 16, Reds 2 – Prof: A lot of high powered offensive onslaughts last night, and here’s the first on our docket. The Birds on the Bat got hella hot. Brad Miller, a hot corner guy and erstwhile DH, had two dingers and seven ribbies. That’s a heck of a night. Kolton Wong went 4-4 with two RBI of his own.
White Sox 2, Twins 3 – Scouts: Minnesota finally ended their skid with a big time win against the White Sox. Down 2-0 early, they were able to mount a late game comeback, fortified by Byron Buxton’s robbery in left center.
Mets 5, Orioles 9 – Scouts: Baltimore’s back on the winning track, and they are proving they can win in all sorts of crazy manners. They even did this thing called a bunt. You may have heard of it. If not, ask your grandpappy about it. Oh yea, and they also hit three homers. But yea, that bunting thing. Wild right?
Braves 10, Red Sox 3 – Prof: The Braves got their mojo back. Marcell Ozuna had three HRs. Yes! And six RBI to boot. Sir, I am thrilled you’re in Atlanta this year. Oh, and this happened:
Cubs 8, Pirates 7 F/11 – Scouts: It took a little while, but the 21-14 Cubs finally took down the 10-23 Pirates in extras. After blowing a 6-1 lead they held in the 5th, and then taking a lead in the 10th and blowing that, they finally took the lead in the 11th and made that one stick. It’s almost as if Pittsburgh didn’t want to lose. How rude!
Tigers 12, Brewers 1 – Scouts: Detroit picked up their 6th consecutive victory and despite being just a game over .500 have their eyes on a potential playoff run. Josh Lindblom and the Brewers bullpen got absolutely lit up in this one. Not a single pitcher escaped without giving up at least a pair of runs.
Nationals 0, Phillies 6 – Prof: Aaron Nola had an excellent evening. The Philadelphia ace went eight innings, only giving up two hits. Meanwhile, the sublime Andrew McCutchen had a three run dinger. The Nats are broken. What’s going on?
Rays 3, Yankees 5 – Scouts: New York finally won one against Tampa and it took everything they had to do it. Looks like everyone is all fired up too, as teh benches cleared in the 9th after Aroldis Chapman thew one a few inches past Mike Brosseau’s head. Brosseau ended up striking out to end the game, and that’s when the jawing occurred. It’s really sad to watch both bullpens slowly jog onto the field after the game is over in an empty stadium when clearly everyone just wanted to go home.
Blue Jays 2, Marlins 3 – Scouts: Starling Marte took no time in showing off his talents and proving his worth to the Marlins. Marte hit the go ahead home run in the 8th, a victory over the Blue Jays that pushed Miami to a game over .500.
Giants 23, Rockies 5 – Scouts: Oh boy, I saw this score and knew it would be a nightmare to recap. I mean how can you properly do 23 runs justice? SF scored a run in every inning but the 9th. 7 in the 6th. And they got a good performance out of Kevin Gausman to boot. Alex Dickerson went 5-6 with 6 RBI’s on three homers. ALSO tallying 6 RBI’s was Donovan Solano and Brandon Crawford. I only counted 4 homers, although to be fair it’s hard to tell with all this action.
D-backs 3, Dodgers 6 – Scouts: All they do is win win win. Seriously, they are 3 games away from a 3-1 ratio. That’s absolutely nuts man.
Spiders 10, Royals 1 – Scouts: Big time win for the team from the Land of Cleve whom is apparently still investigating changing their team name. (Hint hint, we’ve already come to the conclusion for you, so just do it already.) Zach Plesac gave up just 4 hits and 1 run over 6 strong innings. Meanwhile Matt Harvey only lasted 1.1 innings, and in giving up 5 runs raised his ERA to 15.43. Oof.
Rangers 6, Asterisks 5 F/10 – Scouts: Was this the first game Houston has played in a few months? I can’t even keep track anymore. Either way, it wasn’t a pretty game for the former trash can bangers as the Rangers came from behind to tie it up in the 9th, and then score the winning runs in the 10th, thanks to a balk and a throwing error.
