And That Happenedby Craig Calcaterra
June 01, 2012
There were only three freakin' games last night. Three! How is this fair? Bah! Bah, I say.
Tigers 7, Red Sox 3: Max Scherzer continues to be non-disastrous, which is what the Tigers really need from him. Delmon Young and Quintin Berry each had three hits for Detroit. Alex Avila had one hit in the box score and one hit to the face while catching -- foul ball -- which left him bloody and forced him out of the game.
Rockies 11, Astros 5: Carlos Gonzalez' reign of terror continues (3 for 4, HR, 2B, 3 RBI). Michael Cuddyer drove in three as well. Astros starter Bud Norris probably needs a hug. He gave up nine runs on seven hits in less than two innings. It's OK, Bud. The bad men in the white pinstriped jerseys aren't there to hurt you anymore.
Brewers 6, Dodgers 2: Milwaukee sweeps the Dodgers in the four game series. Zack Greinke allowed one run over six. The Matt Kempless-era, Part II, of the 2012 Dodgers has not gotten off to a rousing start. Gloom and doom is afoot, people. Gloom and doom.
As you probably know, I basically simulpost ATH here and over at HardballTalk at NBC. Over there -- because it's my site and I don't mind polluting it with off-topic stuff -- I added a giant digression to the end of today's recaps to make up for the lack of baseball content. It's about Bob Dylan. I sorta feel odd about putting it all here, though, because again, not my site. If you're interested, though, here it is.
