He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for

Prof: There are waaaaay too many games today for preambles and rambles. But as a special treat, you get more tunes chosen by yours truly. Two days in a row, wow! Let’s get crackin’.

Scouts: Prof has selected one of my absolute favorite cover bands. The Gimmie Gimmies. And I cannot more highly recommend them. If you haven’t heard of them before, do yourself a favor and do a deep dive on either Youtube or Spotify for them. Each album is a themed album, from Country, to Divas, to Rock, to Punk. They do fantastic covers and have too many great covers to post here. Anyways, there are too many games today, so some of my recaps will be abbreviated. Help us out in the comments!


Orioles 11, Mets 2Scouts: All DJ Stweart does is hit homers. John Means looked like the stud they hoped he’d become, and with the win the Orioles are now just a half game back of the Yankees for the playoffs. Suck it ESPN!

Yankees 1, Blue Jays 2Prof: The Yankees are on a heck of a skid and yet, still at .500. Maybe not for long. Losing five in a row is rough. Meanwhile, Buffa-ronto continues to play excellent, exciting baseball. Jonathan Davis hit a two run dinger and that’s all the Jays needed to secure that bag.

Brewers 3, Tigers 8Prof: Oh, what a world we live in, where one of the worst teams in baseball last year not only rolled up on, but now has a better record than, a team that was one of the finest in the game. The Tiggers got their claws. “Jungle Red!” (Here’s hoping the film buffs know this reference!) Jeimer Candelario came to play. The Detroit infielder went 2-4 with 4 RBI.

Red Sox 5, Phillies 6 F/7 Game 1Prof: Bohm’s away! Alec Bohm, that is. The Philadelphia rookie sensation saved the day with a two out, two run single in the seventh inning. Earlier in the contest he hit a two run single, while Didi Gregorius hit a dinger, and Bryce Harper scored on an error.

Red Sox 5, Phillies 2 F/7 Game 2Scouts: Bobby Dalbec has homered in 4 consecutive games, a Red Sox record for a rookie. He also singled in a run in the 7th. Maybe it would be a good idea to pitch around him for a while.

Rays 3, Nationals 5Scouts: After sweeping the two game set vs the Rays, the Nats have won two games in a row. If they win one more it’s called a winning streak. If they want to start ripping stickers off the life sized cutout of Margaret Whitton, they’re gonna have to go through division leader Atlanta to do it.

Royals 8, Spiders 6Prof: Them BBQ Boys broke a seven game losing streak thanks to some timely RISP and a smackaroo from good ol Whit Merrifeld. Greg Holland gets the win.

A’s 4, Astros 2 F/7 Game 1Scouts: Oakland’s had a rough go if it lately, losing their best record in the AL status, but they got a big shot in the arm when Khris Davis had a break out game, picking up a pair of RBI’s on a homer and a double. Oakland will be counting on Davis to return to form if they want to make a serious playoff run.

Astros 5, A’s 4 F/7 Game 2Scouts: Houston ended a 6 game losing streak and got a little payback, coming back down 4-0 to tie it in the 4th, and finally break away for the win with a sac fly in the 7th. The win puts Houston just a game over .500.

Reds 0, Cubs 3Scouts: Alec Mills gave the Cubs 6 strong innings teaming up with his bullpen to shut out the Reds. All three Cubs runs came off triples oddly enough.

Angels 1, Rangers 7Scouts: Lance Lynn dominated, throwing 7 innings of shut out ball for the Rangers.

Twins 7, Cardinals 3 F/7 Game 1Prof: Big bomb energy in this match-up. Donaldson, Cruz, and Sanó all went yicketty, and Jose Berrios struck out eight.

Twins 4, Cardinals 6 F/7 Game 2Scouts: St. Louis split the twin set thanks to a 5 run 3rd inning which knocked Randy Dobnak out of the game. St. Louis is just three games out of the division lead behind the Cubs.

Mariners 5, Giants 6Scouts: Down 5-1 in the third, the Giants began to slowly peck and crawl back into the game, and before anyone knew it, they were taking the lead on a Darin Ruf homer in the 7th.

Marlins 8, Braves 0Prof: The Feesh rolled into Cobb County and put a goose egg on the Braves. Fresh off the farm, the young man stuck on the mound for Atlanta didn’t stand a chance. Brian Anderson went 3-3 with an RBI, while Jorge Alfaro, Garrett Cooper, and former Bravo Matt Joyce went yard. Oh. And my small child Max Fried is on the DL. 2020 continues to be savage.

White Sox 4, Pirates 5Scouts: Pittsburgh walked it off thanks to Kevin Newman’s fielders choice. There was a play at the plate, however catcher yasmani Grandal was credited with a missed catch error and the game was over. Not exactly the best way to lose a ballgame.

Rockies 5, Padres 14Scouts: Woof, this was a whoopin’. Wil Myers hit a Grand Slam in the 1st, and a solo shot in the 7th. Austin Nola also picked up 4 RBI’s.

Dodgers 10, Dbacks 9Scouts: LA picked up their 31st win on the season and at this point they are just toying with people. The Dodgers scored 4 in the 7th to tie it up, and then scored 4 more in the 10th. Gavin Lux homered twice and racked up 5 RBI’s in the win.

  1. Don’t look now, but the Nats have won four of five, and are 16-25, which is the identical record they had last year after 41 games. I only know this because it’s mentioned in my pinned tweet.

    Of course, after 60 games (which just happens to be the length of this season*) they were 19-31, but a guy can dream, can’t he?

  2. The Tiggers are still a bit shy of .500 but only 1 game back for the 2nd wild card. Sure, the expanded playoffs are a gimmick, but after 3 straight seasons of 98 or more losses it’s nice to have a little bit of a reason to watch. In this afternoon’s game Daz Cameron will make his major league debut, which is the 10th time this season the Tiggers have a player doing that. Wonder what the record is for most debuts in a season. Cameron was part of the return from the Asterisks when we gave away Verlander. And if you want to feel really old, Daz is the son of former gold glove winning outfielder Mike Cameron.

  3. Yikes! The Brewers just drubbed the Tigers 19-0. 13 extra base hits, 5 homers, all 10 Brewers with a plate appearance reached base at least once.

    1. No worry. The Tigers last four games are against the Royals and they only have to suffer at the hands of the Twins two more times. If the O’s can’t take the Yankees out of the playoffs the Tigers will.

      1. It’d be interesting if the Yankees ended up with their first losing season since 1992 and missed even the expanded playoffs in a year when they were one of the preseason favorites to win a pennant.

      1. Meanwhile the Falcons defeated the Dolphins 29-8.
        Who’d have thought the Brewers would put up 19 runs but be 10 runs short of the high score of the day?
