Austin Dean’s first home run of the season not enough to slow down the Nationals

Austin Dean’s first home run of the season not enough to slow down the Nationals

Max Scherzer held the Fish at bay and the Nationals bullpen did not implode against the Fish. The Marlins got beat around by the Nats tonight. The offense was on display throughout the game for the Nats. The Fish was not able to keep up. Max Scherzer did his thing, and Dan Straily struggled some what. It was another long game for the Fish. Dan Straily: 6 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 2 HR Max Scherzer: 6 IP, 5 H, 0, 1 BB, 7 K, 0 HR The Nats started the offense off tonight in the second inning. Dan “the man” Straily gave up a solo shot to Ryan Zimmerman. The 90 mile per hour pitch caught...

The bullpen is still bad, Royals lose 5-3

Jakob Junis wasn’t bad though As we have seen many times this season, an early lead is no match for the Royals bullpen. A rapid fire rally jump started the Royals but a really bad bullpen blew up the car in a 5-3 loss to the White Sox. Chicago starter and Old Friend James Shields stayed out of trouble for the better half of seven innings but ran into an old-fashioned keep-the-line-moving Royals rally in the 3rd. Starting with Alcides Escobar, four of the next five Royals got hits, including a Whit Merrifield RBI double and a Salvador Perez RBI single. The 5th Royal was Alex Gordon, who...

Red Sox activate Ian Kinsler, place Rafael Devers on 10-day disabled list

Part expected, part surprise It was a good news/bad news type of day at Fenway on Friday. As expected, they activated Ian Kinsler off the disabled list. This was obviously good news, as he was acquired to be their everyday second baseman but hasn’t been able to fill that role due to injury. He went down with a hamstring injury during the second game of the Yankees series, but will be back in action at Fenway Friday night. The expectation was that a pitcher — likely Hector Velazquez — would be optioned to make room for the second baseman since the team has been playing with a short...

And not only that, but hosts his own charity golf tournament at Windross Farm in New Zealand. I now commit myself to figuring out a way to watch Adams play a full round of golf.

The Angels tried to Ranger the Rangers but the Rangers would not be Ranger’d Remember last night’s game when the Rangers allowed a bunch of early runs and spent the rest of the evening clawing their way back only to heroically triumph over the hated Angels in the end? Tonight’s game was kind of the opposite of that with Texas scoring five runs in the second innings as they batted around. Afterward, it was the Angels who starting to chip away at the lead over the rest of the game until they were within a run and ready to force feed the Rangers a taste of their own medicine.
