The Yankees unleash hell upon the Rangers 11-2. Gary Sanchez cranking out 2 dingers and adding a whopping 7 RBI. Gerrit Cole finally gets his first win as a Yankee, throwing 103 pitches over 6 innings while giving up 1.
Only in fantasy land would the Red Sox open up the season 13-5, but guess where we are? The Sox beat Oakland 8-1. Jackie Bradley Jr. raises his robust average to .215 (hmm maybe this is more realistic than I thought) going 3 for 4 with his second home run of the season.
Stephen Strasburg has the inside track on the Cy Young award going 8 innings while giving up just one run as the Nat’s beat the Mariners 4-2. Strasburg now stands at a 3 and 0 record on the year.
Ozzie Albies hits a 2-run 9th inning shot to cap a 3-run inning which was enough to end the Mets’ night. Final score of this one was 5-4.
In our final game of the day, Rhys Hoskins says “Hey Cody, you can’t go deep if you don’t play.” With the Dodgers idle today, Hoskins takes advantage by hitting his Major League Leading 9th home run. The Phillies’ first baseman now has 4 round trippers in his last 3 games. Zach Wheeler evens his record at 2 and 2 pitching 8 innings giving up 2 runs while striking out 5 and walking none.
