And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

May 29, 2013, 6:53 AM EDT

New York Mets Lucas Duda reacts after he hit to get winning run against New York Yankees in New York

Mets 2, Yankees 1: Yesterday I cracked that Mariano Rivera, who was asked to throw out the first pitch by the Mets, would likely throw the last pitch in the “Yankees likely victory over the Mets.” Shows ya what I know. The greatest closer in the history of baseball came into the ninth with a one-run lead and promptly gave up a ground rule double and two singles. Those, along with a Brett Gardner error, gave the Mets the 2-1 walkoff win. Matt Harvey gets the no-decision, but he struck out 10 in eight shutout one run innings.

Braves 7, Blue Jays 6: The Braves are representative of the disturbing, destabilizing  growing inequality between rich and poor in this great nation. Except instead of money, they have catchers. Two homers for Brian McCann, one for Evan Gattis.

Nationals 9, Orioles 3: Two homers for players developed by the Braves are the new inefficiency. Adam LaRoche goes yard twice and drove in four. Roger Bernadina and Tyler Moore went deep too. Davey Johnson said he wouldn’t shave until the bats woke up. Now, despite the Nats’ biggest offensive day in a month and a half, he’s saying he won’t shave because he doesn’t want to jinx it. OK.

Rockies 2, Astros 1: Jose Veras, like Mariano Rivera, couldn’t stop the opposition in the ninth. That’s the first and last time anyone makes even the vaguest comparison between Veras and Rivera. Michael Cuddyer had three hits, including an RBI single in the ninth, driving in Troy Tulowitzki, who had doubled just before.

Reds 8, Indians 2: If this was the NBA or NFL some commentator would say the Indians are being “exposed” in recent days. Thankfully the baseball season is so long and varied that such analysis is poppycock. Eh, who am I kidding someone is going to say it anyway, even if it’s just a rough patch for Cleveland. The Reds rapped ten hits off Zach McCallister. Xavier Paul was 3 for 4 with a couple driven in.

Pirates 1, Tigers 0: We’re blacked out of Pirates game here in Cbus, so the girlfriend couldn’t watch this. As we were going to bed she checked the score online and found that it was still 0-0 in the tenth inning. I said “wow, who’s pitching?” She said “Jose Ortega, so they’re probably going to lose soon.” It came one inning later on a Neil Walker bomb. Now, if someone would just explain to me why Pirates games are blacked out here in Cbus. Rick Porcello got a no-decision despite eight impressive shutout innings.

Twins 6, Brewers 5: A long day at work, but a good one for Aaron Hicks in this 14 inning affair. He scored the winning run on a sac fly, doubled and homered in this one. Earlier he made a leaping grab at the center field wall to rob Carlos Gomez of a home run. And what did you do yesterday? Play 15 games of minesweeper, have lottery fantasies and read baseball blogs? Well, heck, if so you actually had a pretty good day too. It’s how I spent the bulk of the years 2001-2009.

Phillies 3, Red Sox 1: Cliff Lee had thrown just 95 pitches in tying up Red Sox bats and he probably coulda finished the game, but Charlie Manuel brought in Jonathan Papelbon to close out out. Why?

“Kind of wanted to see it, if you want to know the truth,” Manuel said after the former Red Sox closer finished off the 3-1 victory over Boston on Tuesday night. “Pap likes drama. Might as well like it with him.”

Charlie Manuel: master troll.  In other news, Terry Francona comes to Boston with the Indians the other day and gets cheered. Papelbon comes to Boston with the Phillies and gets booed. Whatever, Sox fans.

Dodgers 3, Angels 0Hyun-Jin Ryu with a two-hit shutout in this brisk, two hour, eleven minute affair.

Rays 7, Marlins 6: The Rays were down four, but no lead is safe for the Marlins. Desmond Jennings drove in the winning run with a two-out single in the bottom of the ninth to hand Miami its seventh straight loss. Our friend Old Gator informs us that the Marlins own the worst record in professional baseball in all of North America at this time, including Mexico and the minors. He further informs us that the 1962 Mets were 15-37 through 52 games. The Marlins are 13-39.

Cardinals 4, Royals 1: The 1oth straight home loss for Kansas City. The Cards are now 20-9 on the road. Carlos Beltran with a two-run homer.

Athletics 6, Giants 3: Five in a row for the A’s and 10 of 11. Giants starter Michael Kickham was tattooed. “Michael Kickham” would also be an excellent name for the lead character in a straight-to-video martial arts movie from the late 80s.

Padres 6, Mariners 1: Eric Wedge is flat wrong in saying that sabermetrics ruined Dustin Ackley. Sabermetricians hate Edinson Volquez and he ruined the M’s bats last night. So QED or whatever. Who ruined Brandon Maurer last night? I’m gonna say some combination of anarchists and the environmentalist movement.

Cubs vs. White Sox: POSTPONED: You must be somewhere in London. You must be lovin’ your life in the rain. You must be somewhere in London walking Abbey Lane.

  1. redguy12588 - May 29, 2013 at 6:59 AM

    The pirates have gone against verlander 3 times in the last season and a half. That’s just not fair.

  2. indaburg - May 29, 2013 at 7:01 AM

    Old Gator failed to inform me that the Feesh are such an offensive juggernaut. 12 runs in two days against my Rays? Oh, wait…

    • nbjays - May 29, 2013 at 7:40 AM

      Sad thing is, those 12 runs represent a good week’s allotment of runs for the Feesh. Shame to waste them on a couple of losing efforts.

      • Old Gator - May 29, 2013 at 8:28 AM

        Before we start giving credit to the Feesh batters, let’s face it – the Razed peetching was awful for those two games, just awful. What the hell has gone wrong with Jeremy Hellickson? He used to be adorable. Team Tumulus was just lucky that the Feesh hurlers (and yes, I am cognizant of the alternative idiomatic meaning of that word) decided to pick the last two games to become icky as well.

        Ryan Webb, who until late last week was pretty reliable out of the boolpen, suddenly has all kinds of problem getting outs. Problems? Right now he couldn’t get a drag queen out of the closet. A. J. Ramos has launched more rockets than the Tyuratam Cosmodrome. If you’ve got a situation where you need someone to come into a men on base situation and get your guys back to the dugout, he’s the go-to guy. Two or three pitches and pow! Steve Cishek, last year’s un-Heath Bell, has finally internalized all the pointers Bell must have bestowed upon him. Used to be that the Feesh could be counted on for a succession of low-scoring losses – scores like 2-1, 3-2 or even, once in a while, 4-3 on a very good night at the plate. Now, their boolpen is the Polish cavalry of the NL East. Brave, determined, horribly overmatched, Have fun playing with the Panzers, boys.

        Bad teams have a tendency to be totally out of sync. The can sometimes hit. They can sometimes pitch. They just can’t do both at the same time. Kevin Slowey, your 2013 poster boy for non-support, had a decent outing and left with a two run lead that Ryan Webb gave back so quickly Slowey must have sprained his neck watching the line drives sail into the outfield. Five runs must have looked like Thanksgiving dinner – a perfectly done turkey (and again, your resident semiotician is aware of the idioms lurking on the table) with cornbread, pecan and apple stuffing, giblet gravy laced with sauterne, roasted marrows, homemade cran-raspberry jelly, fresh steamed corn on the cob and a big field greens salad with goat cheese, walnuts and dried blackcurrants in a white wine vinagrette dressing, freshly brewed Galapagos coffee shade grown in volcanic soil, and I won’t even mention the pies and cakes on the sideboard. And then it was as if someone had let the Weimeraner, the great Dane and the coon hounds get into the dining room while they were watching the last ten minutes of the football game.


        The Razed and the Feesh have now repaired to Macondo Banana Massacre Field to continue this travesty. Someone offered me a teecket. I demurred, since the great jazz and blues vocalist Mel Dancy will be playing at the world famous Luna Star Cafe in North Macondo tonight. Then again, I almost would have demurred if Neil Diamond were going to show up and lip synch “Sweet Caroline.” Almost.

        We’ll be tracking the progress here on out – or regress, if you prefer – of the Feesh as they battle the 1962 Mutts for the world haplessness title this season. The Astros, bad as they are, don’t seem to have the enthusiasm or gravitas to plunge past the Feesh and compete effectively for it.

        in other news, this is the Feesh’s second consecutive seven game losing streak in a row. I called it right here, you will remember, the day after they snapped the last one.

      • indaburg - May 29, 2013 at 8:28 AM

        It just demonstrates how ineffective the Rays pitching has been. Even the hapless Feesh can score. This is going to be a long season. Roberto Hernandez goes tonight. I expet the Feesh to score a baker’s dozen tonight.

      • Old Gator - May 29, 2013 at 8:45 AM

        Indy, quick question – did the Trap decommission their beloved morbidly obese predator drone? I haven’t been there in a while – I don’t have a prescription for Lexapro to sustain me for three hours in that crypt – but I do have wonderful memories of watching it dive into the empty third deck seats or get stuck in the girders. It would be a shame if they took away such an unending source of delight for their fans.

      • stex52 - May 29, 2013 at 10:57 AM

        OG, I shouldn’t have read your comment while sitting at a desk before lunch. I feel like I hit a food porn site and will never make lunch. Shouldn’t one of those “FBI” ransomware notes covered my screen while I was reading you?

      • Old Gator - May 29, 2013 at 12:33 PM

        Well, think of it this way: Feesh fans, like most dogs, are coprophagiac.

        Feel better now?

      • indaburg - May 29, 2013 at 12:38 PM

        OG, predator drone in my beloved warehouse? En englais, s’il te plait. You mean the birds that occasionally nest there?

      • stex52 - May 29, 2013 at 1:57 PM

        I don’t know, Inda. I got “blimp” out of his description. But OG will have to enlighten us.

      • Old Gator - May 29, 2013 at 2:26 PM

        “Blimp” is the correct answer! Give him the antidote!

        Indy – there used to be a min-camera blimp buzzing around inside the Tropicana Bubo. It was always going out of control and getting stuck between the catwalks or drifting mindlessly into the upper decks. I guess your response means the Razed’ legal department finally figured it was better to scrap it than to wait around to get sued by some “traumatized” fan(s).

      • indaburg - May 29, 2013 at 4:28 PM

        I forgot about the purposeless mini-blimp. I never understood its raison d’etre. It’s been gone for a long time. Had you called it a zeppelin, I would have known what you meant.

      • stex52 - May 29, 2013 at 4:37 PM

        Now Inda, why use one word to describe something when 5 will do?

    • proudlycanadian - May 29, 2013 at 8:35 AM

      On a positive note for the Rays, they were the only AL East team to win yesterday.

      • indaburg - May 29, 2013 at 9:41 AM

        Very true. Ugly wins count the same as pretty ones in the standings.

        If we can just tread water until Price comes back healthy and Hellickson can return to his normal form, the Rays will be in good shape. The bullpen is awful–the worst in the AL– but it is overworked because of the starting rotation’s ineffectiveness outside of Cobb and Moore. The Shields-Davis trade is not looking good for 2013. The Rays would be in 1st place, I am convinced, if they still had those two. I am convinced of a lot of things this morning.

      • proudlycanadian - May 29, 2013 at 9:50 AM

        Hellickson is the question mark. Is the pitching form we are seeing now the new normal?

      • gerryb323 - May 29, 2013 at 11:43 AM

        Agreed on Hellickson. For the last couple years his advanced stats have been screaming regression, but he somehow kept sliding by unafflicted by that disease.

        Well, it seems to finally have caught up with him. I’m sure Eric Wedge would agree it’s sabermetrics’ fault.

      • indaburg - May 29, 2013 at 12:34 PM

        I agree, Hellickson’s stats have screamed regression. His BABIP has been historically fantastic. However, I expected regression to maybe an average AL pitcher. I would even be ok with mediocre at this point. This isn’t regression. This is devolution.

  3. kcrobert10 - May 29, 2013 at 7:23 AM

    Got to love our loveable losers hear in kc. How much longer till football season ah shoot I forgot they suck to. Good thing we have the best bbq in the world to comfort our suffering here in kcmo.

  4. philliesblow - May 29, 2013 at 7:35 AM

    Why are Pirates games blacked out in Cbus? Probably a territory rights issue. Distances between cities: Cbus to Cincinnati – 107 miles, Cbus to Pittsburgh – 185 miles. Cbus to CLeveland – 143 miles, Cbus to Detroit – 204 miles. MLB probably considers the Cbus market to belong to Cincinnati or Cleveland.

    The Tigers loss wasn’t Ortega’s fault, he just received no run support. Of all people, the girlfriend should recognize that.

    • historiophiliac - May 29, 2013 at 7:56 AM

      Ironic that Porcello has such a great outing (new personal record for SO — what?) and then Miggy et al do not. Of course, if Cutch was Inge 2.0 that would’ve helped us too. It must have been the rain. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

      Do not look for reason in the blackout policy. It will only drive you mad. (I feel like this point begs for a Brazil reference, but I hated that movie, so it must beg on. Thumb away on that, folks.)

      For the girlfriend: Stop jinxing us, woman! >:(

      • detroitr1 - May 29, 2013 at 8:02 AM

        Yeah, I’m not sure why she is calling out Ortega in a 1-0 loss. We seem to struggle against sinker ball pitchers. I’m going to go with that instead of saying that Cabrera/Prince have looked lost as of late. I had to pull out my reading glasses with Porcello’s strikeout line.

      • indaburg - May 29, 2013 at 8:37 AM

        The blackout policy, I am convinced, arises from a personal vendetta Selig has against the Midwest. Y’all know what you did.

        Btw, there is a blurb in the paper that the Rays are going to make an announcement today regarding Misogynist Du Jour Josh Sale: (scroll down midway)
        I am convinced my personal appeals to Joe Maddon and Evan Longoria on Twitter have something to do with this.

      • Old Gator - May 29, 2013 at 8:49 AM

        He aint no misogynist. He just dont like gurls.

      • proudlycanadian - May 29, 2013 at 8:56 AM

        The jinxing will probably change once her status is upgraded.

      • indaburg - May 29, 2013 at 12:40 PM

        PC, what do you consider a status upgrade?

      • proudlycanadian - May 29, 2013 at 5:35 PM

        A ring or two.

    • jwbiii - May 29, 2013 at 10:18 AM

      Here ya go

      The only spot in the Lower 48 that’s not in at least one team’s territory is the Everglades National Park, which is nice if you happen to be an old gator.

      • dan1111 - May 29, 2013 at 12:18 PM

        Poor Iowa! How did the entire state end up in the blackout territory for the Twins, Brewers, Cubs, White Sox, Royals, and Cardinals?

      • jwbiii - May 29, 2013 at 12:38 PM

        Las Vegas is bad, too. No Padres, Dodgers, Angels, Giants, A’s, or Diamondbacks.

      • historiophiliac - May 29, 2013 at 12:52 PM

        Sheesh, and I thought it was bad that I am blacked out of 4 markets with no MLB team in-state.

      • spudchukar - May 29, 2013 at 2:57 PM

        No longer, but 2 years ago, Kansas City was blacked out in Central Idaho. You know for all those possible Idaho attendees to Kaufman.

  5. ryand17 - May 29, 2013 at 7:39 AM

    You can compare Veras’ and Rivera’s last names. They share many of the same letters.

  6. themuddychicken - May 29, 2013 at 7:47 AM

    To be fair, the Sox fans did also cheer Papelbon earlier. They played a video before the game in honor of Papelbon, showing his career with the Red Sox, and the crowd gave him a pretty good hand. Though it did change to boos once the in-game situation arose.

    • heyblueyoustink - May 29, 2013 at 9:03 AM

      ” To be fair ”

      You haven’t been in this part of town very long, have you?

      ” Deserves got nothing to do with it.”

  7. detroitr1 - May 29, 2013 at 7:56 AM

    Jason Grilli struck out Miguel Cabrera effortlessly.

    Now, if you’re a Pirates fan, you’re thinking “big deal, he’s been lights out all season.” Non-Tigers fans should understand how bizarre that is. Grilli (and even Rodney for that matter) was for years “that guy” in the Tigers pen. You know which guy I’m talking about–every team has ‘that guy’ (Coke occupies the space now). It’s a guy that would destroy your team’s momentum (typically carries an ERA north of 4). He’s the guy your likeable manager brings in at situations that make no sense and of course blows the game up like the Gas Can that he is. He is (or was in our case) the guy that serves up involuntary souvenirs to fans in the bleachers.

    And now he (like Rodney last year) is one of the best closers in the game. The lesson here is, if your team needs bullpen help, look for scrubs that played for the Tigers and make him your closer or setup man.

    • wonkypenguin - May 29, 2013 at 11:10 AM

      Isn’t the official name of this phenomenon “LaTroy Hawkinsism”?

  8. proudlycanadian - May 29, 2013 at 8:16 AM

    A certain Braves fan who shall remain nameless listed their squeaker 1 run win second. Yesterday, he listed their 9 to 3 loss near the bottom. The 4 game series between former World Series opponents now moves to Atlanta. Should be fun. Are the Braves fans feeling lucky behind today’s starter?

    • Craig Calcaterra - May 29, 2013 at 8:21 AM

      If you’re looking for patterns in how I list games, you’re going to be in for some disappointment. I tend to put good individual performances or particularly exciting games first to go with a picture, but after that I just list them in random-ass order.

      • proudlycanadian - May 29, 2013 at 8:29 AM

        Thanks for the explanation Craig; however, as a Jay’s fan, I found Mondays game between the Jays and Braves to be more exciting than Tuesday’s. For me, yesterday’s game began with a sinking feeling due to inept fielding and the loss of Morrow.

      • Old Gator - May 29, 2013 at 8:37 AM

        Craig seems blissfully unaware of the subtle ordering principles that dominate the unconscious, like differential equations plotted for Mandelbrot sets. It’s just as well. Let’s just hope none of his deep thoughts penetrate to those depths and make him too self conscious to keep on weaving pretty patterns in the ether.

      • historiophiliac - May 29, 2013 at 9:45 AM

        A man who promises to disappoint up-front. Refreshing.

      • indaburg - May 29, 2013 at 2:19 PM

        ‘Philac, most men make that promise. We just choose not to listen.

      • historiophiliac - May 29, 2013 at 2:29 PM

        Spoken like a married lady. 😉

  9. gigab0t - May 29, 2013 at 8:49 AM

    “Yesterday I cracked that Mariano Rivera, who was asked to throw out the first pitch by the Mets, would likely throw the last pitch”

    and you weren’t wrong!

    • nbjays - May 29, 2013 at 10:15 AM

      That first pitch must have worn him out, hence the blown save.

  10. dluxxx - May 29, 2013 at 9:23 AM

    I went to bed after the 10th inning of the Twins game, so I missed the end. I did, however, see Hick’s spectacular catch and his home run. Props to GoGo on his hat tip after Hicks robbed him.

  11. sportsdrenched - May 29, 2013 at 9:54 AM

    From now on until the new GM takes over, I will only be paying attention to the Royals for their comedic value. It’s how Royals fans survive.

    Their last home win was on 5/5, they won’t get an opportunity to win until 6/4. A month without a home win that’s #royalling

    • paperlions - May 29, 2013 at 10:00 AM

      Trust the process!

  12. paperlions - May 29, 2013 at 9:59 AM

    Lost in the relative abundance of good pitching performances yesterday was Tyler Lyons allowing only 2 hits and a walk over 7 innings while allowing only one run. Even a Joe West strike zone couldn’t defeat him. Seriously, West may has well have held his middle finger out to Mujica during the 9th inning, check out the 3 easy strikes that West called balls:

    Lyons has pitched 7 innings in each of his starts, allowed 1 run each time, 1 walk each time, 6 total hits, and has thrown only 81 and 89 pitches in those two road starts. I am seriously starting to think the Cardinals may have some sort of voodoo they are using on their MiLB organizational arms.

    • historiophiliac - May 29, 2013 at 10:38 AM


      • paperlions - May 29, 2013 at 10:50 AM

        Are you booing the failure to mention that Lyons was an OSU Cowboy, or the implication that his success may be derived from PERs (Performance Enhancing Rituals)?

      • historiophiliac - May 29, 2013 at 10:52 AM

        I only care about the OK report. Lyons kinda counts (you could shout out to the Frying Pan, yes) — but I needs reports on the others too.

      • paperlions - May 29, 2013 at 10:58 AM

        Kozma didn’t play, I guess the Cardinals figured he, Holliday (who DHed), and Lyons all together just wouldn’t be a fair fight. Holliday had a couple of hits, including a HR…but he also bounced into an inning ending double play with runners on the corners when he could have broken the game open.

      • historiophiliac - May 29, 2013 at 12:56 PM

        My sister posted on FB yesterday that OU won the Big 12 baseball championship. I asked her when she’d ever watched an OU baseball game, which forced her to admit she had never done so. She probably couldn’t tell you who holds the records for most wins in Bedlam baseball competitions. So annoying.

      • spudchukar - May 29, 2013 at 11:06 AM

        They also sat Molina.

    • sportsdrenched - May 29, 2013 at 11:35 AM

      Lyons had a better start against the Royals, than he had against the Storm Chasers a few weeks ago.

      Wacha will probably do just as well.

  13. aceshigh11 - May 29, 2013 at 10:00 AM

    It’s funny…I checked the Sox-Phillies score online last night, and saw it was 2-1 Phillies.

    I said to myself…Cliff Lee must be on the mound. Sure enough…

    Luckily enough, the Mets pulled off a near-miraculous feat against the Yankees, so no ground was lost in the AL East.

  14. spudchukar - May 29, 2013 at 10:48 AM

    The new Cards Phenom of the week is Tyler Lyons. Two consecutive 7 inning 1 run outings. Granted it was against the Padres and slumping Royals, but both were road wins. The secret to his success is simple, keep the ball down and throw strikes. He doesn’t wow anybody with his stuff, although he does possess a pretty good breaking ball, but he manages to keep hitters off stride, and so far few balls have been centered.

    The Cards finish May with home games against the Royals and an encounter with the struggling Giants. Two out of three would situate them 18 games over .500 entering June, when they have a tough stretch against the Giants, D-Backs, and Reds, but then the next 24 games are:

    3 @ NY Mets
    3 @ FLA Marlins
    4 vs CHI Cubs
    3 vs TEX Rangers
    2 @ HOU Astros
    3 @ OAK A’s
    3 @ ANA Angels
    3 vs MIA Marlins
    4 @ CHI Cubs
    3 vs SD Padres
    3 vs PHI Phillies

    After that the road gets rough with plenty of games against Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati, but those 24 games could elevate the Red Birds even more.

    • paperlions - May 29, 2013 at 10:52 AM

      When you are the steam roller, ain’t no road too rough. :-)

      • spudchukar - May 29, 2013 at 11:01 AM

        Well Yeah, but at some point the Cards will return to earth. But the easier stretch comes at a good time for the newly crafted rotation. A chance for the young hurlers to get their feet wet, gain some confidence, and prepare themselves for the tough match-ups in the last two months of the season.

      • paperlions - May 29, 2013 at 11:11 AM

        Agreed. The Cardinals season actually started off with a tough stretch, until recently, they had played very few teams that were below .500. They got a little lucky while their offense and bullpen were struggling, but now the offense is coming around (the list of OBP in the lineup is pretty impressive, everyone is getting on base), the bullpen has settled down…and only the rotation is somewhat of a question mark due to injuries.

      • spudchukar - May 29, 2013 at 12:09 PM

        Yeah, the Reds have played a much more favorable schedule to date. The Pirates, not so much.

    • spudchukar - May 29, 2013 at 10:55 AM

      Er, that should read the “those 34 games”.

  15. APBA Guy - May 29, 2013 at 12:05 PM

    Jarrod Parker is slowly righting the ship, though after watching last night’s game I think he was extremely lucky, as he continually missed his spots but did so down, with the obliging Giants chipping in by making weak contact on his centered mistakes. The A’s continue to generate offense, made easier by a very nervous rookie pitcher opposing them.

    Tonight the series moves to the more luxurious AT&T. There will be some A’s fans there, but the proportion is more in the Giants favor as fewer tickets are available to the A’s fans due to the much greater season ticket sold percentage at AT &T. Milone v Lincecum tonight.

  16. deathmonkey41 - May 29, 2013 at 12:08 PM

    The Yanks have wasted two very good performances by starting pitchers the last two nights. Blah.

  17. Stiller43 - May 29, 2013 at 2:01 PM

    This is the most pirates talk ive seen here ever. Nice change
