Last Night in Baseball History April 9th

Scores in bold.

Indians (7-3) 8 AT Tigers (7-4) 2 – The Indians hit 4 homers and scored 8. Corey Kluber pitched 6 strong innings and only surrendered a lone earned run.

Blue Jays (4-8) 7 AT Red Sox (3-9) 5 – The Red Sox received their World Series rings before the game. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. stole home. The Blue Jays scored 7 runs with 10 hits and they did not hit a home run. Mookie Betts and Mitch Moreland homered for Boston in the loss.

Rays (9-3) 10 AT White Sox (3-7) 5 – The Rays continued their hot start. Austin Meadows had 4 hits and got on base 5 times from the leadoff spot. Yoan Moncada went deep in the loss. The Rays scored 10 runs on 13 hits.

Marlins (3-8) 0 AT Reds (2-8) 14 – This was probably the most complete performance for any team so far and it came from the slumping Reds. Luis Castillo gave up just 2 hits over 7 dominant innings. The Reds hit back to back to back home runs in the 6th. The Reds scored 14 runs on 16 hits.

Athletics (7-8) 13 AT Orioles (5-6) 2 – The A’s scored 5 runs in the 2nd, which was plenty for Brett Anderson who gave up 2 runs in 6.2 innings. Jurickson Profar homered, had 4 hits, and had 5 RBI. We usually think of Centerfielders robbing home runs or laying out to make an impossible grab, but Ramon Laureano is making a name for himself with his cannon of an arm.

Nationals (5-5) 10 AT Phillies (7-3) 6 F/10 – Bryce Harper and Maikel Franco homered early to give the Phillies the lead. The Phils lead 6-1 until the 6th when it all began to unravel. Victor Robles went yard in the 9th to tie it and force extras. In the 10th, Juan Soto hit a 3-run shot. The Nats Bullpen pitched 6 scoreless.

Dodgers (8-4) 0 AT Cardinals (6-5) 4 – Yadier Molina hit 2 RBI-doubles and Paul Goldschmidt homered for the 6th time. The Cards used 6 different pitchers to shutout the Dodgers.

Yankees (5-6) 3 AT Astros (7-5) 6 – George Springer hit the go-ahead double in the 8th. Jose Altuve crushed a ball for his 3rd. Gerrit Cole gave up 3 runs in 7 innings. The Yankees injury woes continue with Luis Severino being shut down for at least 6 weeks with a lat strain.

Mariners (11-2) 6 AT Royals (2-8) 3 – Jay Bruce hit his 7th homer of the year to lift the hottest team in baseball. The Mariners banged out 15 hits from up and down the Lineup. Marco Gonzales threw 6 solid innings and picked up his 4th win.

Braves (7-4) 7 AT Rockies (3-9) 1 – Max Fried was brilliant again. This time going 6 innings without an earned run. Ronald Acuna and Dansby Swanson homered to lift Atlanta.

Twins (6-3) 14 AT Mets (6-4) 8 – Jacob deGrom wasn’t himself, but that shouldn’t take away from the Twins. They launched 6 longballs. Mitch Garver and Jonathan Schoop each homered twice. Pete Alonso also hit 2 in the loss. The Twins scored 14 runs on 17 hits.

Rangers (5-6) 4 AT Diamondbacks (6-5) 5 – The Rangers lead 4-2 going into the 9th but couldn’t hold on. Jarrod Dyson hit a 2-run shot to end it. Mike Minor’s start was wasted, he went 7 and gave up 2.

Padres (7-5) 2 AT Giants (4-8) 7 – Kevin Pillar hit a bases clearing double and had 4 RBI. Derek Holland pitched 7 innings of 1-run ball. Hunter Renfroe hit his 4th bomb of the year in the loss.

Brewers (8-4) 8 AT Angels (6-6) 11 – The Angels scored 6 in the 1st inning and rolled to their 5th win in a row. Tommy La Stella homered twice and had 4 RBI. Mike Trout left the game with a groin strain and will be day-to-day.
