It’s a holiday, so ATH is off, celebrating the economic and social contributions of workers everywhere.  It is, however, tipping a cap to Chipper Jones, who did some freakin’ work last night, hitting a walkoff homer for the second time against Philly this year. The man was, is and always will be a beast.

As for  the scores:

Braves 8, Phillies 7
Tigers 4, White Sox 2
Dodgers 5, Diamondbacks 4
Rockies 11, Padres 10
Mariners 2, Angels 1
Giants 7, Cubs 5
Athletics 6, Red Sox 2
Brewers 12, Pirates 8
Royals 6, Twins 4
Reds 5, Astros 3
Rays 9, Blue Jays 4
Nationals 4, Cardinals 3
Orioles 8, Yankees 3
Mets 5, Marlins 1
Rangers 8, Indians 3

    Is Larry the only person who played baseball yesterday?

      Verlander beat Sale in a game that had post season and possibly Cy Young implications. Also, in the Cy Young race, Weaver gave up 2 solo homers and lost while Price gave up 2 fluke runs and won. In the home run race, Edwin hit his 37th homer.

    Jason Bay’s Grand Slam means he’ll drive in more runs this season (18) then millions earned (16).

    I’m sure he’s relieved to get that monkey off his back.

    Mammo Yicketty’s away for Ol’ Chipper – top sport.

    Cy Young’s pretty much down to Price, JV and King Felix now. I think either Price or JV gets if theymake the playoffs unless King Felix continues to dominate and the other two dont’t.

    Still can’t believe that of all people Bay hits a grand slam against the fish.

      These days, anyone could hit a grand slam against the Feesh. And this is a team that never heard the word “comeback.” I stopped bothering to watch the game after the first after a quick shot of the dugout showed twenty five Rainbow Warriors shrugging with their eyes. I think Justin Ruggiano drew the short straw that meant he had to go out and drive in the one run that might bestow faux respectability on a bunch of guys who are not so much mailing it in for the rest of the season as stuffing notes in used beer bottles and could care less when a stray tide deposits it at some unsuspecting sunbathers’ feet. Otherwise it was a teepical Feesh game, with guys dying on base (1 for 7 RISP) and more missed opportunities than a Middle East peace conference.

      After tearing it up on the road, hitting in the five spot, Slobbering Ozzie decided that there’s no success so profound that he can’t find a way to mess with it, so he moved the Iron Giant back into the cleanup spot where he became instantly useless. Disorientation?

      Let’s see some of the kids now, Ozzie. What else is left?

    Karl Ravitch tweeted after the game that something “magical” seems to be happening with Chipper and the Braves. The Braves are 4-6 in their last 10 games and appear primed for another September collapse. Yes, that’s truly magical.

      Ravech has been eclipsed by Bertiaume in terms of quality on BBTN, although Karl is still considered the #1 host by ESPN. Extremely unfortunate, as his time is long past.

    Just another Phils phan that can’t wait for Chipper Jones to retire.

  8. APBA Guy - Sep 3, 2012 at 12:52 PM

    The A’s score 33 runs and only surrender five in the sweep of the Red Sox. Based on what went on in the clubhouse and on the field, I think Valentine’s end has come. Things aren’t going too well in Liverpool either, where the Gunners blanked the Fenway Sports Groups’ team 2-0 over the weekend, keeping them in the “relegation zone”. Time for John Henry to rethink his approach to running his teams.

    Back to the A’s: Brett Anderson has profited handsomely from some great defense in his 3 starts, especially Cespedes’ throw yesterday to nail Scotty Pods at the plate in the 6th. Bret’s 3 starts have followed similar patterns: 4 very strong innings, a little drift in the 5th, then clear signs of fatigue in the 6th, and depending on the pitch count, maybe getting into the 7th.

    Still, 2 more HR’s yesterday (Drew and Seth Smith, both were no-doubters). The A’s have been very fortunate to face Minnesota, Cleveland, and Boston over their last 13 of their last 16 games to go 14-2. That ends today with a 3 game set against a highly motivated Angels team.

    “celebrating the economic and social contributions of workers everywhere.”

    I think it possible that you are confusing Labor Day with May Day, comrade.
