Last Night in Baseball History April 8th

Scores in bold.

Rays (8-3) 5 AT White Sox (3-6) 1 – Blake Snell pitched 6 innings, gave up 1 run, and struck out 11. Hunter Wood pitched the remaining 3 innings to pick up the save. The Rays 4 runs in the first 2 innings were enough for Blake Snell, who has been dominant.

Pirates (5-4) 0 AT Cubs (3-7) 10 – The Cubs scored 6 runs in the 2nd and 2 more in the 3rd. They became the 4th team since 1900 to score 10+ runs in 5 of their first 10, and perhaps even more amazing they only have 3 wins. Jon Lester was pulled after 2 because of his hamstring but expects to make his next start.

Athletics (6-8) 4 AT Orioles (5-5) 12 – Trey Mancini homered and had 3 hits. The Orioles piled on 12 runs on 15 hits. Chris Davis set a major league record with 47 hitless at-bats.

Nationals (4-5) 3 AT Phillies (7-2) 4 – Rhys Hoskins went deep twice to lift the Phillies. Odubel Herrera also homered in the win.

Yankees (5-5) 3 AT Astros (6-5) 4 – Carlos Correa hit an infield single in the 8th to give Houston the lead. Jose Altuve homered. Masahiro Tanaka outdueled Justin Verlander through 6, but the Yankees lost.

Dodgers (8-3) 3 AT Cardinals (5-5) 4 – Hyun-Jin Ryu left early with a groin injury. The Cardinals found 4 runs in their 5 hits. Marcell Ozuna went yard and a wild pitch by Joe Kelly in the 6th, scored Paul Goldschmidt for the game’s winning run.

Mariners (10-2) 13 AT Royals (2-7) 5 – Edwin Encarnacion homered twice in 1 inning. Danial Vogelbach hit his 5th, Jay Bruce hit his 6th, and the Mariners cruised to their 10th win. Domingo Santana banged out 3 hits and 4 RBI.

Braves (6-4) 8 AT Rockies (3-8) 6 – Ronald Acuna homered in the 1st and Nick Markakis collected 3 more hits. Trevor Story homered and the Rockies scored all 6 of their runs in the 5th.

Padres (7-4) 6 AT Giants (3-8) 5 – Kevin Pillar hit a grand slam for his 1st homer in a Giants uniform. The 5-0 lead did not hold up as Fernando Tatis Jr., Wil Myers, and Franmil Reyes all went deep.

Brewers (8-3) 2 AT Angels (5-6) 5 – Mike Trout robbed Christian Yelich of a home run. Tommy La Stella, Andrelton Simmons, and Justin Bour all hit their 1st bombs of the year. The Angels have now won 4 in a row.
