And That Happened

Yankees 3, Braves 0: Ivan Nova shut out Atlanta for seven innings and four relievers handled the last two. Atlanta didn’t even get a runner to third base all night. The Yankees have won four in a row, nine of 11 and are now tied for first place in the AL East.

Nationals 6, Blue Jays 3: And the Nats take advantage of the Braves loss to extend their lead in the NL East. Bryce Harper had three hits and drove in a run. Adam LaRoche hit a two-run homer. The big news here, though, was Brandon Morrow leaving after just nine pitches with an oblique injury.

Marlins 4, Red Sox 1: Miami finally wins one after a six-game losing streak. Meanwhile, Boston loses another. Seventh time in eight games, actually.

Angels 3, Dodgers 2: The Dodgers jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first with help from a bad pickoff throw at the second that Mike Trout made worse when trying to field it in center. But Trout homered in the fourth, singled in a run in the sixth and Albert Pujols won the sucker with an RBI single — scoring Trout — in the ninth. Trout is on pace to score approximately 1,349,593 runs this season. Approximately.

    Also of note on the Yankees/Braves game, despite having a 3 run lead in the 9th and, thus, a save situation, Rafael Soriano was nowhere to be seen.  Could this have something to do with ugly blown save against the Mets the day before?  You know, the one where he was burned by Ike “Interstate” Davis?  Well, no, he had a blister.  But couldn’t the blister be a psychosomatic reaction to getting figuratively burned?  No.  And by “no” I mean “yes”.  And by “I” I mean the New York media.  Go forth, New York Post!

    The odd thing is the Yankees used both Corey Wade and Boone Logan in the 9th to end the game.  And that was voluntarily as it was a 1-2-3 inning.  So no one got a save.  Isn’t that grounds for a grievance?

    Also of note in the same game, Brian McCann hit the ball real hard 4 times and got an O-fer for his troubles, the highlight being posterized by a Nick Swisher wall catch in right.  I suspect that kinda feels like getting dunked on by Steve Nash.
