The Blues could be even stronger next season
We knew the Washington Nationals’ bullpen was bad, but we figured the damage they did would be limited to games. Apparently, we were wrong. One Nationals fan grew so frustrated with the team’s relievers that he made sure to take shots at them in his obituary. A 68-year-old Nationals fan named Patrick Killebrew died peacefully June 20 “after […]
As usual, Sunday affords the baseball enthusiast a full schedule of games, including plenty of daytime action. Now let's jump right in … Final scores Minnesota Twins 4, Cleveland Indians 0 (box score) Baltimore Orioles 8, Tampa Bay Rays 5 (box score) Miami Marlins 4, Cubs 2 (box score)
The Washington Nationals’ bullpen woes have hampered the team all season, and one fan rubbed some salt in the wound with a tongue-in-cheek parting message. An obituary from Patrick Killebrew, 68, singled out Washington’s relief struggles as the final act he witnessed, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. It reads as follows: KILLEBREW, Patrick, “Pat,” age […]
After John Jaso’s fly ball cleared the center-field fence Friday night, there was a sense of excitement and relief in the Pirates’ dugout. Felipe Rivero had just defused a jam in the eighth inning, and thanks to Jaso’s home run, he would have a lead in the ninth.
The Tigers are hoping for another strong outing from veteran Anibal Sanchez when he faces the Padres on Saturday. San Diego will go with talented rookie Dinelson Lamet, who struck out a career-high 12 batters in his last start.
Buster Posey indulges in some southern hospitality every time he comes home to play the Braves. The Leesburg, Ga., native continued his career success Thursday night as he belted his 10th home run in the Giants’ 12-11 loss to the Braves at SunTrust Park.
The Pirates’ 4-3 loss to the Brewers on Wednesday night was a microcosm of their last month.
For the second straight night, the Mets will rely on a Southern Californian at Dodger Stadium. On Tuesday, it was Westchester native Robert Gsellman. Wednesday brings another rookie, San Dimas native Tyler Pill, who will be recalled to start opposite veteran left-hander Rich Hill.
Anthony RizzoThe Greatest Leadoff Hitter #HomeRun #Cubspic.twitter.com/xeJrviVtWW — Jen (@jenjencubed) June 21, 2017 Anthony Rizzo drew the ire of the San Diego Padres on Monday, running into catcher Austin Hedges in what Major League Baseball reportedly deemed a violation of Rule 7.13, or the Buster Posey Rule. He didn’t endear himself to them Tuesday, either. […]
The newest addition to the Phillies starting rotation is pitching like he’s been here before. With another serviceable outing Sunday, Ben Lively became the first Phillies starter to begin his Major League career with four consecutive quality starts since Brandon Duckworth in 2001.
Rick Porcello couldn't be further from his Cy Young form. The Boston Red Sox right-hander was shelled for a third consecutive start on Saturday, allowing seven runs (two home runs) off 10 hits over six innings against the Houston Astros to see his ERA balloon to 5.05 on the season. After what was a breakout […]
