Twins 6, White Sox 3 (10 innings): The offense finally comes through

Luis Arraez can hit a little bit. | Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports A fun Fourth of July finish For nine innings, the script of this game seemed all too familiar. It was low scoring like so many have been this season. There was a short, yet effective start by a Twins starting pitcher. And the Twins bullpen allowed the opposing team to tie the game. But then, the 10th inning happened. In the first two innings of the game, the Twins had five baserunners. None of them scored, however, and the visiting squad grounded into two double-plays in the first two frames. On the...

Want to know what someone outside of the U.S. thinks of our policies? Hey, we’ve got a guy in the pen. | Quinn Harris/ The closer slams the door on gun lawlessness Liam Hendriks was activated for the July 4 game against the Twins — day that happened to coincide with a horrific mass shooting during a parade 25 miles north of Chicago, in Highland Park. Pregrame, Hendriks stood in front of his uniform and a shirt reading “Stars & Stripes & Reproductive Rights” as he fielded questions about his return. Hendriks is known for allyship, as he’s become the face of...

Unruly Seattle cousins cause ruckus at family picnic, defeat Padres 8-2

Photo by Denis Poroy/ Mariners get up to no good in America’s Finest City, win big behind strong effort from Flexen, young stars Rodríguez and Raleigh Maybe it’s the tongue-in-cheek forced rivalry between the two clubs, maybe it’s the fact that the Padres and Mariners share a facility in Arizona and see a lot of each other, but there’s something about a series against the Padres that always feels a little more familiar than a random interleague series. Today the Mariners visited their cousins down south and despite the Padres possessing the better record and...

Diamondbacks 8, Giants 3: Windependence Day

Photo by Norm Hall/ Beer, hot dogs and a Diamondbacks victory. Happy Fourth of July! Record: 36-44. Pace: 73-89. Change on 2021: +14. After falling behind early, it looked like this was going be a rocky Independence Day for the D-backs. But they battled back, helped by some particular ineptness on the part of the Giants, to take the opening game of the series. While there may have been no fireworks after this contest, the Diamondbacks provided plenty during proceedings, with some great defense, base-running and relief pitching in particular. I was a little late...

Mets 7, Reds 4 - Mets top Reds behind Dom Smith’s double

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports The first baseman had a rare bright moment, landing the decisive hit in a 4th of July win. With their biggest offensive output since June 17th, the Mets topped the Reds 7-4. Both Brandon Nimmo and Francisco Lindor went deep, Taijuan Walker was excellent aside from one mistake, and Dominic Smith knocked a loud double that proved to be the difference. All-in-all, not a bad day to celebrate the holiday. It seemed the Mets were in for a game that frustrated viewers in the same way many of their summer games have. They stranded the bases loaded...
