Scores in bold.
Diamondbacks (12-11) 12 AT Pirates (12-8) 4 – Through 6 innings the Pirates led 4-1. The D-backs put up 7 in the 7th and 4 more in the 8th to blow out the Pirates. They scored 12 runs on 17 hits with only 2 homers.
White Sox (9-12) 12 AT Orioles (8-16) 2 – The White Sox scored 4 runs in 3 innings and rolled over Baltimore. Only one player didn’t record a hit and Jose Abreu led the team with 3 hits and 5 RBI. James McCann drove in 4 for a White Sox Lineup that produced 12 runs on 15 hits.
Royals (7-16) 3 AT Rays (15-8) 6 – The Rays regrouped after the Red Sox sweep and took the first game of the series from the Royals. Mike Zunino hit his 1st homer of the year and 1st as a dad. The Rays became the 3rd team to reach 15 wins on the year.
Brewers (13-11) 5 AT Cardinals (13-9) 13 – The Cardinals continued the trend of teams busting out offensively on the night. Paul Goldschmidt hit his 9th bomb of the year and Dexter Fowler homered and had 4 hits driving in 4. With the extraordinary Christian Yelich start you’d expect this team to be a little better than 2 games over 500.
Phillies (12-10) 1 AT Mets (12-10) 5 – Steven Matz gave up 1 run and 3 hits over 6 innings. Jeff McNeil hit his first homer of the season. The Phillies managed only 3 hits and committed 3 errors.
Twins (13-7) 9 AT Astros (13-9) 5 – This game featured plenty of offense Monday night as the teams combined for 23 hits and 14 runs. The Twins had hits from all but 1 of their players. Jorge Polanco homered, had 4 hits, and drove in 4.
Nationals (10-11) 5 AT Rockies (10-13) 7 – Nolan Arenado had 3 hits including his 1000th of his incredible career and then turned a game ending double play. After Tyler Anderson left the game the Rockies put up 6 innings of scoreless relief. The Rockies have come back from a horrific start to the year and are now one of the hotter teams in baseball.
Yankees (12-10) 4 AT Angels (9-14) 3 F/14 – J.A. Happ and Matt Harvey pitched well but neither factored in the decision in the late inning contest. Gio Urshela proved to be more than a defensive stalwart when he picked up RBI in the 12th and the 14th. The Yankees are doing a solid job navigating through a minefield of injuries in the early part of the season.
Rangers (12-9) 1 AT Athletics (12-13) 6 – Chris Bassitt threw 5 shutout innings in his 2019 debut. Stephen Piscotty homered and drove in 3 for Oakland. The A’s held the Rangers powerful offense to just 1 run.
