Settling the Scores: Sunday’s results

62 Comments

A lot of really amazing performances yesterday. Madison Bumgarner was a one-man gang, homering and tossing a 14-strikeout shutout. Zack Greinke also homered and outdueled Anthony DeSclafani of the Reds. Chris Sale struck out 15, but didn’t homer. He may claim it was because he was playing in an American League home park and there was a DH, but maybe he just didn’t want it bad enough. Shelby Miller had a no-hitter into the eighth, but didn’t even get a win. That’s a fine how-do-you-do. At least the Braves won the game on a Cameron Maybin walkoff.

And then there the leaders in the National League East. The Mets got swept by the Pirates. But that’s OK as far as the standings go because the Nationals got swept by the Giants for their sixth straight loss and eighth loss in their last ten games. They’re under .500 now. The NL East: not-so-impressive.

Apologies for no full And That Happened today. It’s my kids’ first day of school and they’re old enough now to where I can truly embarrass them in front of their friends while I take pictures and stuff so there’s a lot on my plate this A.M.
