May 9 MLB Simulation Results

broken bat

The Red Sox are slowly coming back to Earth as they drop another one to the Yankees 8-2.  Giancarlo Stanton hits his 11th of the year to highlight the offense.  Matt Hall should have stayed in the hall, or at least Triple A.  He gives up 7 hits, 6 walks and 4 runs over 5 innings to see his ERA settle at 9.35.  Might want to send him back down.  Positive news for the Sox…Andrew Benintendi goes 3 for 3 with his 5th home run and is now hitting .341.  Must be time to ship him off, right front office?

Ryan Mountcastle continues to rake.  Today he goes 3 for 4 with his 7th jack and is now batting .330.  The Orioles clip the Angels’ wings 9-5.  Future first ballot hall of famer, Albert Pujols, hits his 660th career home run to tie Willie Mays for 5th on the all-time list.

Jonathan Schoop goes 4 for 5 with a homer and 4 RBI as the Tigers take a 12 inning bite out of Cleveland 11-10.  Francisco Lindor hits hist 12th in the loss.

Brandon Lowe had a career day going 4 for 5 with 2 doubles and 2 home runs while driving in 7 in Tampa’s 14-5 victory over the Rangers.

Yordan Alvarez pops his 8th home run and Josh Reddick, replacing an injured Kyle Tucker, hits a 9th inning grand slam to end Seattle’s day.  Astros take this one 7-4.

Eddie Rosario and Miguel Sano go a combined 7 for 10 with 2 home runs and 6 RBI as the Twins beat the Royals 10-8.

Matt Chapman and Mark Canha each hit home runs off of the now 0-7 Tanner Roark and Jesus Luzardo gives up 4 hits and no runs through 6 1/3 as the A’s pick up a win over the Blue Jays 5-1.

Kolten Wong and Harrison Bader both with 2 hits and an RBI in the Cardinals’ victory over the Mets 5-3.  Jeff McNeil the bright spot for the Mets going 2 for 3 with his 8th home run.  McNeil is now hitting .331.

The Cubs’ corners were on fire today.  Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant team up for a 6 for 10, 2 home run and 5 RBI day as the Cubs take down Washington 8-5.  Yu Darvish throws 7 innings of shutout ball to pick up his 3rd win.

Vince Velasquez gives up 1 run on 3 hits through 6 2/3 as the Phillies 4-hit the Pirates in a 3-1 game.  Velasquez now seeing his ERA under 4.00.

In the bottom of the 9th, pinch hitter Jedd Gyorko drives in Christian Yelich in a Milwaukee 1-0 walk-off over Arizona.  Luke Weaver with 8 innings of shutout work while Brandon Woodruff goes 6 strong of the same.

Austin Riley hits a single in the bottom of the 9th to tell Marcell Ozuna to COME ON DOWWWN, as the Braves walk-off against the Marlins 3-2.

It looks like they kept score during batting practice today as the Reds put up 18 to Colorado’s 16.  9 home runs in all today with Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story both cranking 2.  Blackmon eventually left this one with a strained abdominal and could miss up to 5 week.

Kevin Gausman was a force today.  Over 8 innings he scattered 7 hits and struck out 9 as the Giants shut out the White Sox 3-0.

In the bottom of the 10th, Mookie Betts blasts his first walk-off home run in Dodger blue.  LA takes today’s game over the Padres 3-2.

Transactionally speaking:

Sergio Romo is back from rehab for the Twins…corresponding move was to designation Tyler Clippard for assignment;

Baltimore removes Jose Rondon from the 40-man roster; and

The Angels activate two-way star Shohei Ohtani.

That’s your Saturday trip around the diamond!

      1. That stat sucks!!! I don’t care if it’s a fact, I call FAKE NEWS!!! As for yesterday, take comfort in knowing that it took a fall and an injury to largely keep me off many of my favorite sites. I’m back and just in time to see the sim finally get it right!
