I figured I’d have to jump through 50 hoops this morning in order to get my refund for last night’s rainout, but this email just popped into my box:
Your credit card will automatically be
credited the ticket price and convenience charges, and should post to
your account within 7 to 10 business days. Please note, the $3.35 per order processing fee, any ticketFast, or UPS delivery charges and in-store pick up charges are non-refundable.
Given that it’s the Yankees and Tickermaster we’re talking about here I didn’t expect that I’d have to do . . . nothing.
Of course, why they charged me “processing fees” and “service charges” despite the fact that I printed out the ticket myself and never interacted with a human being is an open question, but I’m in a good mood today and will refrain from attacking big monopolistic ripoff artists until, I dunno, next week.
Orioles third baseman Manny Machado and second baseman Jonathan Schoop teamed up to turn an impressive 5-4-3 double play in the bottom of the first inning of Monday night’s game against the Rays.
Steven Souza, Jr. led off the frame with a single. Corey Dickerson struck out, bringing Evan Longoria to the dish. Longoria sharply grounded a 1-2 fastball from Kevin Gausman to Machado, who showcased his strong arm with a perfect feed to Schoop at the second base bag despite his momentum taking him towards into territory. Schoop made an off-balance throw to first to complete the twin-killing.
The Orioles took the lead in the top of the third when Adam Jones hit a solo home run off of Ian Snell.
The Mets announced on Monday that starter Zack Wheeler has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a stress reaction in his right arm. Pitcher Tyler Pill has been recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Wheeler, 27, has a 5.21 ERA with an 81/40 K/BB ratio in 86 1/3 innings this season. He joins a long list of injured Mets, including rotation mates Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey, Tommy Milone, and Robert Gsellman. It’s not clear at the moment how long Wheeler will be out.
Pill, 27, has spent most of his season with Las Vegas, with which he has a 3.47 ERA over 13 starts. He has made three starts and two relief appearances in the majors this season as well.
