6-8 - Adorned in ugly hats, Rangers lose to Orioles 5-2

Photo by Richard Rodriguez/ And just like that, the winning streak is halted The Texas Rangers scored two runs and the Baltimore Orioles scored five runs. Finally blessed with a game where C.J. Nitkowski couldn’t pollute me ears, I settled in to watch the Rangers attempt to extend their winning streak to four games and move back to .500 on the season before BS Southwest switch over to a Mavs game an hour in without warning. Oh well, I didn’t want to see my favorite team wearing truck stop gift shop hats anyway. Regardless of my personal ability to enjoy tonight’s...

Diamondbacks 0, Nationals 1: We Don’t Need Another Zero

Diamondbacks 0, Nationals 1: We Don’t Need Another Zero

Photo by Greg Fiume/ Quite the contrast to last night’s game. Ah, offense. I remember it well. To start last night’s contest, the team combined to score 14 runs, while making the first seven outs. This evening? Not so much. Instead, Taylor Widener and Max Scherzer engaged in a classic pitcher’s duel, matching zeroes through the first six innings. It wasn’t quite an equal match. Mad Max was more dominant, holding the Diamondbacks to only one hit the first two times through the order. Kole Calhoun had a single with one out in the first inning. Their only other...

Joey Votto rocks Cleveland, Cincinnati Reds win series opener 10-3

Joey Votto rocks Cleveland, Cincinnati Reds win series opener 10-3

Photo by Dylan Buell/ ‘Twas a good return to GABP. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game If you somehow managed to both have your head under a baseball rock the last two weeks while also stumbling into a Cincinnati Reds blog late on a Friday night, well, you might still have one question running through your mind at the moment. Does Joey Votto still bang? Folks, Joey Votto does still bang. The Cincinnati 1B bonked another dinger on Friday against Cleveland, bashed a double off the top of the LF wall that nearly doubled that dinger output on the night, and...

That was a needed victory: Phillies 9, Cardinals 2

James Lang-USA TODAY Sports A much needed win early in the season April is too early for “must win” games. There is still a ton of baseball to be played, a lot of things that could still happen. But boy did this one feel like a must win for the Phillies. After playing pretty poor baseball for almost a week, they returned home to face a Cardinals team that was also not exactly playing great baseball themselves. With Zach Eflin on the mound and their rotation shuffled so that two of their three best pitchers going in the series, the table was set for the team to be...

Game 13 Thread. April 16, 2021, 9:10 CDT. Astros @ Mariners

Photo by Bob Levey/ The Astros go on the road fighting with one arm tied behind their back. Go Stros. The Astros are 6-6 and have lost their last five games, all at home. Tonight they send Jose Urquidy to the mound to face an old friend who in the past has been very kind to the Astros, Yusei Kukuchi. At the time of this publication, the Astros have not yet posted their lineup. Given the COVID injuries, it’s no surprise. It should be interesting though For more on this series. check out ckuno’s excellent analysis HERE. For Your Viewing and Listening Pleasure Game 1:...

Yes it’s an A’s fan but just one time | Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ First chance for fans to let the infamous Astros have it. Part of “it” will be Yusei Kikuchi. We’re a long way from 2017 and 2018, but the Houston Astros remain tainted by their cheating scandal, an open secret that broke wide open just after the 2019 World Series. Allegations of Astros cheating stretched far beyond the years MLB doled out their tap on the wrist for, of course, but with the lone punishments being minor fines, suspensions for GM Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch, and an...
