Last Night in Baseball History

Scores in bold.

Cardinals (2-3) 6 AT Pirates (1-2) 5 F/11 – The Pirates jumped out to a 4-0 lead, and a Colin Moran homer in the 8th put them up again, but they still took the loss. The Cardinals kept plugging and picked up the winning run on a passed ball in the 11th.

White Sox (1-3) 3 AT Indians (2-2) 5 – It was a pitching duel as Ivan Nova pitched 7 innings of 1 run ball and Mike Clevenger struck out 12 over 7 scoreless. The Indians lineup has been a bit strange because of some nagging injuries and in 3 games they only scored 5 runs. They scored 5 last night, they took the lead with 2 bases loaded walks.

Tigers (2-3) 1 AT Yankees (2-2) 3 – The Yankees used a strong 5 innings from Domingo German and a great performance from the Bullpen to shut down the Tigers. Gary Sanchez and Brett Gardner homered, and the Tigers only managed 2 hits. The Yankees may have lost Miguel Andujar for the year as he tore his labrum.

Brewers (4-1) 4 AT Reds (1-2) 3 – Christian Yelich failed to homer but scored the winning run on an RBI double by Ryan Braun in the 9th. Yasmani Grandal collected 3 hits.

Orioles (3-1) 6 AT Blue Jays (2-3) 5 – The Orioles put up a 4 spot in the 1st and David Hess pitched 6 and 1/3rd no-hit innings. The Bullpen imploded, but the Orioles lead held up. Jonathan Villar and Trey Mancini went deep.

Cubs (1-3) 0 AT Braves (1-3) 8 – The Cubs committed 6 errors! Ronald Acuna homered for the Braves who scored 8 on 12 hits. Kyle Hendricks gave up 7 runs, but only 2 of them were earned.

Rockies (2-3) 1 AT Rays (4-1) 7 – Brandon Lowe and Kevin Kiermaier homered, and the Rays used the opener to hold down the Rockies. Nolan Arenado notched 3 hits in the losing effort.

Mets (3-1) 7 AT Marlins (2-3) 3 – Pete Alonso hit a 3 run bomb in the 9th for his first career blast. Starlin Castro homered and picked up 3 RBI.

Astros (2-3) 2 AT Rangers (2-2) 1 – Brad Peacock pitched 6 and 2/3rd and only gave up 2 hits. Robinson Chirinos hit a go-ahead double and Carlos Correa had 3 knocks.

Red Sox (1-4) 0 AT Athletics (4-3) 7 – Aaron Brooks pitched 6 shutout innings and the A’s shut down the Sox. Khris Davis hit his 5th homer of the year. The Red Sox were held to just 4 hits.

Angels (1-4) 3 AT Mariners (6-1) 6 – Felix Hernandez started the year with a win. Jay Bruce homered, and the Mariners continued their hot start.

Giants (2-3) 4 AT Dodgers (3-2) 2 – Chris Taylor and Alex Verdugo homered to give the Dodgers an early lead, but that’s all the offense they could muster. Brandon Belt helped the Giants with a home run and an RBI double

Diamondbacks (0-0) 10 AT Padres (0-0) 3 – The D-backs combined for 10 runs and 15 hits. Merill Kelly is an incredible story of perseverance as he toiled in Korea for years before getting his first call-up. Fernando Tatis Jr. picked up home run number 1 with a laser into left.
