May 28 MLB Simulation Results


A nail-biter in the Bronx today.  Byron Buxton with a leadoff single against Gerrit Cole.  Buxton steals 2nd base, takes third on an error by Gio Urshela (10) and eventually scores on a Nelson Cruz sac fly.  1 hit, 1 run, and that was ALL of the Minnesota offense today AND THAT WAS ENOUGH!  The Yankees struggled to get just 3 hits off of Jake Odorizzi through 6 2/3 as he picks up win number 5.  Gerrit Cole had a great day fanning 13 over 8 1/3 giving up just the 1 hit and 1 unearned run in the tough luck loss.

The Royals win streak wasn’t a streak after all and ends at 1 as the Red Sox batter them 13-3.  Rafael Devers 3-5 with his 14th home run and 4 RBI and Jose Peraza adds a 3-6 day with 3 RBI and 3 runs scored.  Eduardo Rodriguez gives up 10 hits, including Jorge Soler’s 15th jack, through 8 innings to pick up win number 7.

Houston’s still home and home means victory for them as they take out the A’s 5-4.  Carlos Correa (12), Michael Brantley (9) and Abraham Toro (2) all blast balls out of the park today.  Khris Davis 1-4 to get down to .279.

It took 11 innings for the Mets to score a run in their game against the Phillies.  Brandon Nimmo drives in Amed Rosario as the Mets win a 1-0 shutout.  Rick Porcello pitches the first 8 2/3 giving up just 3 hits.  Jake Arrieta pulled after just 9 pitches with a mild shoulder strain.
