And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

Yankees 9, Red Sox 6: All of the fireworks. All of the intrigue. All of the A-Rod. But this game really came down to the bullpens. The Yankees’ was fresh and effective, the Red Sox’ wasn’t. Our more thorough write-up can be read here. For now the Red Sox probably need to think less about which rats they want to punish and more about how to get guys out and how to protect a division lead which has been cut in half since Tuesday.

Marlins 6, Giants 5: Hero of the game, Jeff Mathis. He homered and hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth that just eluded Andres Torres‘ dive. Worst part: The home run sculpture in the outfield in Miami got jammed and did not go off after Mathis’ home run. Which, jeez, if I had to play for that owner and that team the least I’d want is that sculpture to spin around and fart all over itself.

Tigers 6, Royals 3: Chalk up another win for Max Scherzer — his 18th — and another homer for Miguel Cabrera, his 40th. I’d be rather shocked if this wasn’t your Cy Young -MVP combo in the American League this year. The Tigers won three of five in this rare five-game series and I feel like that’s enough to put any hope of anyone in the AL Central challenging them to rest.

Phillies 3, Dodgers 2: That’s the end of the Dodgers’ ten-game winning streak thanks to not one but two ninth-inning errors from Hanley Ramirez. For the Phillies it was the first win — and first runs scored — of the Ryne Sandberg Administration.

Orioles 7, Rockies 2: Chris Davis went 4 for 5 with a double, a homer and a couple driven in. The homer was his 45th. Adam Jones had three hits including a two-run homer. So weird that last year they needed all the runs but had an awesome bullpen, this year they have been scoring just fine but have needed better relief. Baseball, man. Baseball.

Braves 2, Nationals 1: Julio Teheran tossed six scoreless. The Braves won two of three and now have a 15.5 game lead. All of this stupid beanball crap has reflected poorly on the Braves in my view — and Braves fans booing Harper like they did here is dumb — but it’s not going to amount to the stuff of rivalry until next year, it seems.

Rays 2, Blue Jays 1Jose Lobaton hit a walk-off home run in the 10th. This goes with his walkoff triple on Friday. Now all he needs is the single and double for the walkoff cycle. That’s a thing, right?

Diamondbacks 4, Pirates 2: Sixteen innings. The Dbacks held the Pirates scoreless in the last 13 of those. Adam Eaton had four hits including the go-ahead double in that final frame. The Pirates dropped two of three — Saturday’s game in ugly fashion allowing 15 runs on 20 hits, this one with no punch at all — and have lost three straight series. Their division lead is down to one game. They need to find a way to stop the bleeding.

White Sox 5, Twins 2Alexei Ramirez homered and had three RBI. Hector Santiago pitched in and out of trouble but got the win. After the game his manager, Robin Ventura, said it was like a root canal watching him pitch. He really did. Which, well, thanks, skip.

Reds 9, Brewers 1: Homer Bailey allowed one run in eight innings. Not that he needed to be so good, as Wily Peralta fooled no Reds batters and coughed up seven runs on eight hits in four and a third. Ryan Hanigan drove in three.

Mariners 4, Rangers 3: Kyle Seager with a go-ahead double in the ninth on a pitch from Joe Nathan at which he probably had no business swinging. The M’s take two of three from Texas.

Cardinals 6, Cubs 1: Adam Wainwright struck out 11 in seven innings to snag his 14th win. Jon Jay drove in four with a homer and a double. After a rough stretch St. Louis has now won five of seven and are only a game behind the Pirates. Now they get the pleasure of facing the punchless Brewers for three games. After that, though, 17 straight against teams that would be in the playoffs if the season ended today.

Astros 7, Angels 5: Matt Dominguez hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the seventh inning and the Astros take two of three. They took two of three from the A’s before that, so that’s a pretty nice stretch for them. Mike Trout left the game with some hamstring tightness, but he doesn’t think it’s serious.

Padres 4, Mets 3: A walkoff homer for Will Venable to lead off the ninth. He also drove in a run in the fifth. He now has a 15-game hitting streak.

Athletics 7, Indians 3: Chris Young and Alberto Callaspo homered in the fifth inning. Josh Donaldson drove in three. Lots of good defense from the A’s too.  Oakland is now only a half game behind Texas. Cleveland has lost six of its last seven in the Coliseum.

  1. uyf1950 - Aug 19, 2013 at 6:36 AM

    The Yankees did indeed go 7-3 over their last 10 games as I had hoped they would before the start of those games. A-Rod also the the last laugh on both Dempster and the Red Sox for their childish behavior of trying to take him out of the game.

    The Yankees playoff hopes are still slim but they have caught up to one of the teams the Royals and are now only 1.5 games behind the Indians in their quest to move “up the ladder” towards the wild card.

    The Yankees have 12 more games this month I’m thinking taking 8 of the 12 should help them make up still more ground on both the Indians who are immediately ahead of the Yankees and the Orioles who are just ahead of the Indians. We’ll see how all of this shakes out.

    • proudlycanadian - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:02 AM

      Congratulations to the Yankees in winning the series against Boston even though Kuroda and Sabathia had rough outings. I believe that 7 of those 12 games you mentioned are against the Jays. Toronto’s starting pitching has improved this month; however, their hitting has regressed slightly. I think that the Yankees would be lucky to win more than they lose against the Jays. It should be a fun 4 game series in NY beginning with a double header on Tuesday.

      • uyf1950 - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:09 AM

        proudly, o ye of little faith. Why do you doubt my crystal ball. We’ll see how close I am in a few days time.

      • proudlycanadian - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:28 AM

        Miracle Max will only work for you if the cause is just, so he will not be working for the Yankees this season.

      • uyf1950 - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:37 AM

        proudly, my friend you make your own luck. The Yankees may or may not make the postseason but one thing I can assure you of. They have the capability to wreak havoc on several teams postseason chances. That might be justice enough, this season.

      • proudlycanadian - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:09 AM

        I think that most Yankee fans would be very happy if their team helped knock the Red Sox out of the playoffs this season.

      • dirtyharry1971 - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:55 AM

        Yea gotta be careful with the jays, after all they been hell on other AL East teams. 21-33 is the tune they beat them too!!! That has to be like what> .400 ball?

      • Old Gator - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:06 AM

        Ah, our resident Artificial Stupidity is up early this morning – with its typically stale and predictable cant, I see!

    • fanofevilempire - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:10 AM

      Yankees have to play everyone in the division ahead of them, game on,
      Dempster just showed what a idiot he is and Yankees players have showed they
      behind Alex so I hope this will wake up the sleeping GIANT.
      Game on!

  2. beelza - Aug 19, 2013 at 6:59 AM

    Taking four pitches to hit ARod is cowards move, it’s a punks move. I’m no fan of any team from NY, Boston, or LA. O’Nora should be disciplined for not tossing Dempster. How many Boston pitcher’s hit Yank batters post-warning? I’ve got no problem with hitting ARod, the way Dempster did it is cheap. What warranted the plunking anyhow? Do they have a history? Was Dempster selected by his team to exact some measure of revenge?

    How can Mike Illitch possibly afford to keep Miggy and Scherzer? Maybe making them equal and sole proprietary partners of the Detroit Red Wings. Whatever, I hope they both stay.

    • heyblueyoustink - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:19 AM

      If I was Dempster, I would have walked out there with a high powered bean bag gun to send my message to ARod.

    • jm91rs - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:27 AM

      Dempster spent so much time in the NL I doubt they could even have too many previous appearances there. It is crazy that he didn’t switch his tactic after accidentally missing him on the first 3 pitches.

  3. kcrobert10 - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:19 AM

    Congrats to the tigers. The royals just don’t have enough this yr to get the job done but the foundation is laid for the next few yrs this is going to be one very tough team to beat. Also wow in Boston I mean purposely throwing at him multiple times and no ejections. Hmmm maybe some in baseball really do have it in for Alex.

    • detroitr1 - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:50 AM

      I went to two games of this series. The Royals don’t get enough credit for how good they’re becoming. The Royals could be in first place if their run didn’t coincide with the Tigers playing teams that seemed to be struggling in the same stretch. The athleticism on the team is the stuff of highlight reels. Moore needs to find a way to keep Shields.

      • sportsdrenched - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:54 AM

        and Santana.

      • kcrobert10 - Aug 19, 2013 at 10:13 AM

        Well shields is signed for next yr we will see after that. The major lose after this yr will be Santana but he does seem to be enjoying his time here in kc maybe he would like to stick around. Guthrie is signed 2 more yrs as is butler and gordon. The rest are all young in arbitration yrs so they have the makings of a very very good young club. I do think a change in manager is needed I personally would like to see Charlie Manuel take the rains next yr. Also Duffy needs to be in the rotation not yoyoed back and forth from Omaha. That kid has some nasty stuff.

  4. rockthered1286 - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:27 AM

    I like the equation over the past few days in Baltimore: put up a good chunk of runs, keep a good lead into the late innings and keep Jim Johnson away from the bump. Effective and fan friendly.

    • proudlycanadian - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:30 AM

      Baltimore does have a good chance to catch Boston.

      • dirtyharry1971 - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:56 AM

        NOBODY and I mean NOBODY is gonna catch the jays for last place, they almost have that puppy locked up!! Congrats!!! I hope they make last place shirts for them and they bring out the bubbly and celebrate when they clinch, they deserved it this year!!

      • Old Gator - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:08 AM

        Our resident Artificial Stupidity resorts to all-caps when it realizes that nobody is paying attention. It’s like crying shark! in a crowded theater.

      • dirtyharry1971 - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:48 AM

        That’s totally not true gator bait, you comment and follow me around like a lost little puppy dog on here not to mention I by far get the most thumbs down for my posts which means my job is working. So keep those thumbs down coming baby!!

      • proudlycanadian - Aug 19, 2013 at 10:40 AM

        Harry has a job? Who knew? He seems to spend a lot of time following the Jays and the posts by Jays fans.

      • Old Gator - Aug 19, 2013 at 11:34 AM

        I have been trying to quantify our resident Artificial Stupidity’s maturity level using the most advanced supercomputers available, the Royal-McBee in tandem with my Babbage Difference Engine.

        I found the first even integer of Pi, but otherwise, no luck so far.

        Oh and Poor Dim One Note Harry, aside from the fact that you view the cumulative disdain of this board for your mere existence as evidence of your success – more evidence, really, for your inherent sociopathy – let’s count all the times you couldn’t spell “Alzheimer’s” correctly during the last three or four days as evidence of who’s following who around like a one-Artificial Stupidity hyena pack.

      • APBA Guy - Aug 19, 2013 at 11:46 AM

        At the risk of sounding like Poor Dim Harry, in that I’ll be repeating myself endlessly, can we please ban Harry? He adds nothing, ever.

      • proudlycanadian - Aug 19, 2013 at 12:14 PM

        Banning Harry is up to Craig. I do not think that I am in any position to ask Craig to ban Harry.

    • historiophiliac - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:44 AM

      Hey, tell your boy Crush to knock it off. Sinceriously, can’t he stick to doubles or something? Go, O’s!

      • Gamera the Brave - Aug 19, 2013 at 10:35 AM

        “Sinceriously”…
        Very Lewis Carroll of you.

      Nuh uh! Doubles are Machado’s domain. Crush hits dingers… it’s his thing. If Miggy wants another Triple Crown, he’s gotta earn it. ;-)

  5. Shafer's Dealer - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:36 AM

    “Braves fans booing Harper like they did here is dumb”

    I can get past your love affair for Alex Rodriguez (besides, its good for business right?)….. but calling the Braves fans ‘dumb’ for booing a pompous, arrogant prick like Harper?
    I guess you only get to see your balls every other weekend.

    • unclemosesgreen - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:00 AM

      So much wrong here that you get your own breakdown.

      – I can’t get past the fact that you think the consistently negative coverage that A-Rod gets here is some kind of ‘love affair.’
      – Craig is a Braves fan calling out his own for doing something that is objectively ‘dumb’
      – You’re ready to call Harper, a 20-year old, a pompous arrogant prick? That is the act of, well, let’s just say the thumb is pointing right back at you.
      – Making some kind of joint custody joke mixed with another masculinity-based jab just winds you down on your childish, juvenile, rancid comment.

      If there’s something you can do to be less of a prick you should do it.

    • stex52 - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:18 AM

      Hey Shafer. Pro Football Talk called. One of their adolescent potty mouths didn’t show. They wondered if you could cover for them. We said it was fine with us.

    • bravojawja - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:36 AM

      You’re not helping, dude.

    • natstowngreg - Aug 19, 2013 at 10:24 AM

      I expected that Craig would not take kindly to Braves fans’ behavior. He did not disappoint. If my fellow Nats fans exhibited that kind of behavior, I wouldn’t take kindly to it.

      I agree that it’s not that much of a rivalry right now, beyond being in the same division. To have a rivalry, the teams need to be playing for something. Right now, the Nats aren’t good enough to be playing for something. In a sense, this makes Fredi Gonzalez engaging in an “unwritten rules” beanball fest look even more petty than it was. I’m disappointed Davey couldn’t resist the temptation, though there was much provocation.

      It was inevitable that the slurs on Young Mr. Harper would return. Never mind how many times he was thrown at over the past two Braves-Nats series. It’s just too easy to slam Harper based on a stereotype. It’s a substitute for thought.

      • Old Gator - Aug 19, 2013 at 11:46 AM

        It’s also a substitute for reality. If anyone has shown himself to be an exemplary young gentleman the past two seasons, it’s Harper. He had his moments when he first came up, caught flak for it, and learned his lesson. He’s repeatedly shown far more dignity in the face of insults or provocations than those who have tried to inflict them. I admire the kid, and he’s well on his way to becoming the superstar everyone expect him to become. Deal with it.

    • duvisited - Aug 19, 2013 at 11:09 AM

      Funny thing is, I don’t think either of Friday’s plunkings of Harper were intentional. The crowd reactions probably didn’t help, though.

  6. unclemosesgreen - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:46 AM

    Dempster & A-Rod – (with apologies to Kat Hanna) *super-fucking yawn*.

    Look – Randolph and Mortimer Duke are squabbling. Or is it Loeb v. Ackman? 2 entitled rich guys in a squabble. And Ryan did something about it that hurt his shareholders, I mean team.

    Ego.

    • beelza - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:11 AM

      It is a super-yawn. I’s not like Sox are fighting for their lives trying to win the division, while holding off one of the best starting rotations in baseball, Tampa.

      • unclemosesgreen - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:14 AM

        There’s the floating devil carpets, the O-Crushers, the KC BBQ Boys, the Pinstriped Pinheads, lotsa good teams to worry about without letting personal idiocy intrude in the 2nd inning.

    • proudlycanadian - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:15 AM

      The Red Sox in a desperate attempt to hold off Tampa Bay, plan to call up their top prospect. The kid is a 21 year old shortstop. I think that his name is Humphrey or something similar.

      • unclemosesgreen - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:18 AM

        I reject your mischaracterization out of hand. The callup is due to Drew suddenly becoming the second coming of Dr. Strangeglove.

      • dirtyharry1971 - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:59 AM

        Don’t you wish your team was desperately in first place, 1993

      • Old Gator - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:09 AM

        Don’t you wish you could be occasionally coherent?

  7. johnnysoda - Aug 19, 2013 at 7:57 AM

    Pittsburgh’s next ten games are against below .500 teams. Hopefully they’ll use this next stretch of games to bounce back.

  8. voteforno6 - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:02 AM

    Between Bud Selig and the behavior of the Red Sox fans at that game, I’m almost to the point that I want Rodriguez to do well, just to stick it to them. This, coming from someone who’s never been a fan of his.

  9. historiophiliac - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:02 AM

    His Heterochromianess, y’all! 18-1 — and he didn’t even have lots of SO’s this time. No walks, and that’s impressive. Cancel your Saturday afternoon plans now, because his next outing is against Matt Harvey in New York. Must see TV.

    Two awesome statements from Chen re: Miggy:

    It was a good pitch. He shouldn’t have pulled it, but he did.

    He made it look like I just left it over the middle of the plate.

    And, so, Miggy is now tied with DiMaggio for career HR’s. And, for those of you keeping score at home, Little Sexy Fire’s BA is still north of Inge 2.0’s. Take that, haters and trolls.

    Eat ‘em up, Tigers! Or, take the day off. It’s cool.

    • blacksables - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:08 AM

      Have much coffee this morning?

      • historiophiliac - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:41 AM

        I was on my first cup there.

    • unclemosesgreen - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:10 AM

      I must have missed something, who is ‘lil sexy fire’ now?

      Why is all the MVP talk focused on Miggy and The Fish when the guy who is personally dragging his team into the playoffs is called “CRUSH”?!

      • historiophiliac - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:43 AM

        Little Sexy Fire is your recent gift to us. Thank you.

        ABBOY!

      • unclemosesgreen - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:50 AM

        Gotta be the Iggy to big Miggy.

        Good to see your Sawksenfreude is simmering along in its’ usual unseemly fashion.

      • historiophiliac - Aug 19, 2013 at 10:03 AM

        BTW. Dempster is no Dickslayer.

      • unclemosesgreen - Aug 19, 2013 at 10:04 AM

        Sawksenfreude, schlongenfreude – just another day in TMcT’s neighborhood.

      • unclemosesgreen - Aug 19, 2013 at 10:06 AM

        I think whenever Heterchromia-Man pitches you should wear sunglasses with one blue lens and one brown lens.

      • historiophiliac - Aug 19, 2013 at 10:11 AM

      • unclemosesgreen - Aug 19, 2013 at 11:03 AM

        I’ll get you a pair if I can douse you with champagne.

  10. Old Gator - Aug 19, 2013 at 8:41 AM

    And speaking of Feesh, the breakdown of Tommy was kinda the exclamation point to this iceberg-ridden season. I didn’t bother to watch the game yesterday but it sounds like one of those “you take it, no you take it, no you take it” games the Feesh have been playing so often lately. They’re not so much a function of the better team winning than of the less worse team winning. On the bright side, I did make up a batch of multigrain buttermilk red huckleberry pancakes yesterday for brunch and a brew a pot of the dark roast Galapagos shade grown Arabica coffee that showed up in my mailbox on Saturday. Life is good despite the presence in my life of Scrooge McLoria, however peripherally.

    • unclemosesgreen - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:13 AM

      I’m sure it would have been difficult to watch the game whilst underground, humming ‘Misguided Angel’ and wedging sabots into Tommy’s gears.

      • Old Gator - Aug 19, 2013 at 11:40 AM

        Unk: no chance. The field is underridden by graboids. They’re small ones and mostly function to tug at the feet of Feesh infielders, causing errors. On the other hand, you know that Scrooge McLoria’s got mama hidden somewhere under there.

    • historiophiliac - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:40 AM

      That thing is hideous.

      • Old Gator - Aug 19, 2013 at 11:37 AM

        You probably can’t take your art without bilateral symmetry, either. You need to be strapped into a chair with your eyelids held open with surgical clips and lubricated with a saline solution drip feed and forced to watch an endless slide show of Jackson Pollacks. Then let’s see what you think of our beautiful Tommy.

      • historiophiliac - Aug 19, 2013 at 11:41 AM

        You’re not supposed to call them “Pollocks” anymore. That’s racist. It’s “Abstract-American” now.

  11. janessa31888 - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:04 AM

    Why cant we just get some good pitching? (Or hitting, too)
    Pretty pathetic right now, Tito.

  12. bravojawja - Aug 19, 2013 at 9:42 AM

    It’s nice to have somebody to boo now that Piazza is gone. It’s not like the Mets have done anything lately to bother booing Wright anymore.

    The question is, “Who will other teams’ fans boo now that Chipper is gone?”

  13. sportsdrenched - Aug 19, 2013 at 10:50 AM

    Thought the Royals had to win 4 of 5 from Detroit, and at the very least go 3 of 5 to continue any glimer of winning the division. I thought that was possible after sweeping the double header on Friday. But, you can only keep that type of talent down for so long, and sure enough they got up and busted out the whoopin sticks.

    Having Wade Davis still in this rotation is squarly on Dayton Moore, although, Duffy went the day before and even if Davis wasn’t in the rotation. Probably would have had to start in this series anyway.

    Dayton Moore’s loyalty to his favorites is costing this team games even though there are inexpensive better options availible.

  14. steelers88 - Aug 19, 2013 at 11:24 AM

    Same old Pirates.

  15. misterj167 - Aug 19, 2013 at 11:33 AM

    Meanwhile, on ESPN:

    “Another great game by the Nationals ruined by horrible umpiring, Doug.”

    “Absolutely, Bob. ESPN has filed a formal complaint with the league over the performance of the third base umpire, who, when given the opportunity, stole away any chance of baseball’s greatest player to hit what would have been the game-winning home run to continue the Nats momentum towards the division title.”

    “Plenty of games still left to play, Doug, so it’s a shame these decisions have to affect the pennant race so much. The umpire was clearly against Bryce Harper and jealous of the skill and class he brings to the game each and every day. And there’s no place in baseball for that kind of bias.”

    “I agree totally. Because if there’s one thing we at ESPN can’t abide, it’s bias.”

    “Exactly!”

  16. APBA Guy - Aug 19, 2013 at 12:05 PM

    The Beloved A’s take 2 of 3 from plucky Cleveland to pull within 1/2 game of division-leading Texas. The game featured some poor Cleveland pitching and base-running (I’m looking at you, former fan favorite Nick Swisher) and a quick hook by Melvin for Tommy Milone, who was replacing El Capitan. The “A” relief plus long-guy Otero went 4.1 and only 3 hits with no runs. No 9th inning drama from Balfour, which was refreshing. At that point it looked like Cleveland just wanted to get out of Oakland. Imagine that?

    More interesting was the car-b-que at the start of the game in, where else, the “A” parking lot. When you see a pall of black smoke rising in Oakland it usually means the professional demonstrators are back. But this time it meant that some “moran” had left his tail-gate coals alight in his vehicle and they ignited said vehicle, which in turn damaged some of its neighbors. “How Oakland” sniffed the SF residents.

    Anyway, the A’s play the Mariners at the Mausoleum for 3 with no King Felix to worry about. After that, the fun really begins:

    at Baltimore for 3
    at Detroit for 4
    Tampa for 3
    Texas for 3
