Settling the Scores: Friday’s results

15 Comments

Look, I may have been on the clock on Friday night, and I may be posting this Saturday morning, but if you think I’m gonna do a full-blown Saturday “And That Happened,” well, you just don’t know my kids very well.

They’re eating Lucky Charms and watching the Cartoon Network and I’m sure they plan on absolutely killing me today with six and eight year-old stuff today, so you’re lucky I can even find the darn scoreboard right now.

But I do know that Henderson Alvarez pitched a Maddux last night and Albert Pujols went 0 for 4. Some things you don’t need to be coherent to know.

Indians 6, Rangers 3

Marlins 9, Padres 8

Brewers 6, Giants 4

Blue Jays 4, Angels 0

Twins 3, Mariners 2

Braves 9, Rockies 8

Orioles 6, Red Sox 4

Nationals 4, Phillies 3

Astros 5, Cardinals 4

Diamondbacks 5, Mets 4

Cubs 5, Dodgers 4

Tigers 5, White Sox 4

Reds 6, Pirates 1

Rays 7, A’s 2

Yankees 6, Royals 2

Astros claim Buddy Boshers off waivers from the Twins

The Astros announced on Monday that the club claimed reliever Buddy Boshers off waivers from the Twins.

Boshers, 29, had been designated for assignment by the Twins last week. Across parts of three seasons, the lefty compiled a 4.59 ERA with a 78/25 K/BB ratio in 86 1/3 innings in the big leagues.

Boshers has handled left-handed hitters much better than right-handed hitters, holding them to a career .621 and .793 OPS, respectively. If he makes the 25-man roster out of spring training, the Astros may use him as a LOOGY — a left-handed one-out guy. As of right now, Tony Sipp is the only lefty in the ‘pen.
