We’re running a bit behind tonight, so let’s make it short and sweet.
Jorge Soler hits his 14th home run to put Kansas City up for good over the Angels. They win this one 4-3.
Ramon Laureano goes 4-5 with 3 doubles. His final double in the bottom of the 9th scores Marcus Semien to end the Rangers’ day. Oakland 5, Rangers 4. Khris Davis 1-4 and down to .293. Hey Davis, COME ON DOOOOOWN!
Pedro Severino was 3-5 with 4 RBI and Anthony Santander with his 6th home run as the Orioles top the Blue Jays 9-6.
Jose Martinez, Austin Meadows, and Kevan Smith all with 2 hits as the Rays beat the Red Sox 3-1. Tyler Glasnow goes 6 innings giving up the 1 run in the no-decision. Andrew Benintendi with another 2 hit performance and Collin McHugh with his first loss in a Red Sox uni.
The Twins put an end to Chicago’s winning streak. Byron Buxton hits his 9th with Alex Avila and Marwin Gonzalez both with 3-run shots as this one ends in a 10-6 score.
Wil Myers with the game winner today in San Diego’s 5-4 victory over the Marlins. Myers steps in in the 9th and deposits a Ryne Stanek offering into the cheap seats for his 4th of the season.
Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant combine to go 4-8 with 2 home runs and 4 RBI as the Cubs take down the Pirates 9-6. Jacob Stallings 2-3 with 4 RBI in the loss.
Yadier Molina with his 6th home run and Brad Miller adds his 4th to go along with 4 RBI as the Cardinals beat the Braves 9-3. Jack Flaherty gives up 2 runs over 6 innings to extend his perfect record to 8-0 on the year.
Aaron Judge with another 9th inning home run. Today’s, his 9th of the year, helps keep the Yankees from getting swept by the Brewers. Yankees win this one 3-1. Ryan Garcia gives up 1 run over 7 innings to move to 3-2 on the season.
Wilson Ramos jacks 2 out of the yard today to give him 7 on the year and Noah Syndergaard picks up his 1st victory of the year by going 5 2/3 giving up 1 run as the Mets beat the Diamondbacks 8-1.
It is with great sadness that I inform you that the Twins designate Hanley Ramirez for assignment; and
The Dodgers put Brusdar Graterol with a tired arm.
That’s your Thursday trip around the diamond! Damn you, work! You’re always getting in the way!
