Leading off the April 6 MLB calendar, Seattle plates 2 in the 9th to top off the White Sox 5-3.
Over in Minnesota, Cleveland dropped the hammer with a score of 8-2. Francisco Lindor launched his third home run of the season.
By a score of 6-4, Baltimore showed the Yankees who was boss. Renato Nunez and Austin Hays both chipped in with 3 hits each while Mychal Givens notched his 4th save.
The Red Sox continue their winning ways one-upping the Rays 4-3. All 4 of their runs came in the 4th led by a 3-run shot off the bat of Jose Peraza.
The Royals pound the Tigers 11-3. Hunter Dozier was 3 for 4 with his 4th homer of the year and 3 RBI. How about a moment of silence for Al Kaline?
Shohei Ohtani won his first game of the year as the Angels beat the A’s 7-3. Ohtani threw 85 pitches over 5 1/3 giving up 3 runs while striking out 7.
The Brewers needed 9 pitchers to beat Cincinnati 5-3.
The 1-9 Marlins went to Washington to become the first team to lose double digit games, coming in second in this contest by a score of 3-2. Juan Soto collected 3 hits, one of them leaving the yard, and driving in 3. Max Scherzer strikes out 12, but didn’t factor into the decision.
The Phillies take one at home against the Blue Jays 6-4. Aaron Nola pitches 8 innings while strike out 8, and Bryce Harper continues his hot start by adding 3 more hits. He’s currently sitting at a .361 average.
Pittsburgh holds off the Cubs 3-2. Chicago’s only runs coming of Kyle Schwarber’s first blast of the year.
The Braves couldn’t find a way around the Padres, losing 3-2. Fernando Tatis, jr and Eric Hosmer both with 3 hits.
It took just shy of 5 hours for the Dodgers to put the Cardinals away. Cody Bellinger hit a game-tying home run in the 9th and it took Joc Peterson’s 14th inning moonshot to put this one in the books.
In our final match-up of the day, the Diamondbacks dismiss the Giants 5-2. Robbie Ray pitched 8 innings. His only mistake was a 6th inning pinch-hit home run by none other than Pablo “don’t call me ‘Fat Panda'” Sandoval. Sandoval now only needs 13 more home runs to match his entire Red Sox career output.
Aaaaaand that’s the end of this episode of the MLB daily recap.
