    Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness: D-backs 8, Dodgers 2: Everybody is rested for the Rockies

    MLB

    The Dodgers had enough of winning and dropped the rubber match against the Diamondbacks by a score of 8-2.

    Oh well.

    The only reason I'm bothering to do a recap is because it was Tony Gonsolin's debut, and boy did I feel bad for him.

    The Joy of Sox: G82: White Sox 8, Red Sox 7

    Chris Sale (6-6-5-1-10, 102) had a horrible first inning for the second straight start, giving up three runs on four hits, a walk, and a hit batter, throwing 34 pitches. Nine innings later, Matt Barnes surrendered a two-run homer to Jose Abreu, which wiped out the Red Sox's 7-6 lead and resulted in an 8-7 loss.

    The Red Sox trailed 5-2 and 6-3 before rallying after the seventh inning stretch. J.D. Martinez, who hit a two-run dong in the first, doubled home Rafael Devers (3-for-5, three runs) in the seventh. Mookie Betts drove in the first run in the eighth and scored, along with Brian Johnson (who pinch-ran for Brock Holt), on Xander Bogaerts's single, giving Boston what turned out to be a short-lived one-run lead.

    Fansided: Nationals: Can Patrick Corbin Dominate Miami Again?

    When Washington Nationals' starter Patrick Corbin faced the Miami Marlins on May 25, he had one of the best performances of his career.

    The left-hander pitched a complete game shutout, striking out five and allowing just eight balls to leave the infield. At that time after his dominant performance, Corbin improved to 5-2 with a 2.85 E.R.A. and was looking like one of the most dominant pitchers in all of baseball.

    Since that game, Corbin has looked like a shell of his early-season self, and up until his last start against the Phillies, he had not gone more than five innings since the shutout victory.

    Wade leblanc is set to pitch so ignore Matt Carasiti and his stats since he's just doing the new open trend. Leblanc sucks but he does do a decent job limiting lefties which should help with this lineup. The issues is the righties crush too. The sample size is small but I like Houser so far and this is as close as a lock as I'm seeing and I'm taking the brewers at -200

    I've been saying for a while that Odorizzi has some regression comeing and not to pay attention to that 2.58 ERA. His Siera has been hovering over 4 all season and his ERA is a 7.2 his last two games. I'm not saying he's horrible by any means but he's not elite. I think he gets hit around today and I really like the rays in this one.

    McCovey Chronicles: Giants vs. Rockies, 6/26

    MLB

    Hopefully, we've all fully absorbed Bumgarner's brilliant start last night because it's Samardzija Time!

    One thing about The Shark's month of June worth watching is that in his four starts, he's allowed 1, 3, 4, and 5 earned runs (yes in that order). Will he swing back around today to register just 2 earned runs allowed to complete the set or will he go for 6?

    RF -- Charlie Blackmon
    CF -- David Dahl
    3B -- Nolan Arenado
    1B -- Daniel Murphy
    LF -- Raimel Tapia
    2B -- Ryan McMahon
    C -- Tony Wolters
    SS -- Garrett Hampson
    SP -- German Marquez

    The Brandon Belt leadoff experiment generated an 0-for-3 with a strikeout and sacrifice fly, which isn't exciting, but there you go.

    Phillies Nation: Phillies look to stay hot, win third straight over Mets

    It's crazy how baseball works. Two days ago, the Philadelphia Phillies were entering a four-game series with the New York Mets after being swept by the Miami Marlins in a weekend series. Hitting coach John Mallee and manager Gabe Kapler - at least in the court of public opinion - were sitting on scalding-hot seats, as the Phillies had lost seven consecutive games.

    And then the Mets came to town.

    After the most lifeless offensive performance of the season Sunday, the Phillies have scored 20 runs in the first two games of their four-game series with the Mets, winning both games in come-from-behind fashion.

    I'm semi nervous about this pick because i've often seen a kid get called up and pitch great because the other team doesn't have anything on him to really prepare. But with that being said, I like how the bats line up for the dodgers and i'm hoping nerves get the best of Gonsollin and he shells out a few bombs of his own. I like the over 10 because look across todays score board, every game has a ton of runs! Welcome to 2019 MLB

    Cincinnati.com: Jose Peraza's Reds-Angels fielding blunder shared by MLB Twitter account

    MLB

    Jose Peraza appeared to lack awareness about the number of outs when he caught Shohei Ohtani's sacrifice fly at the warning track and didn't immediately throw it toward the infield, allowing pinch-runner Wilfredo Tovar to score from second base on the play during the seventh inning of the Cincinnati Reds' 5-1 loss Tuesday night to the Los Angeles Angels.

  • Keuchel getting used to the new team and Darvish still trying to get his confidence back. Both with something to prove. I like the Braves today though.
