And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

Apr 23, 2014, 6:35 AM EDT

Jose Fernandez Getty Images

Marlins 1, Braves 0: I talked about how awesome 1-0 pitching duels are just last week. I wish I had saved that ode for this one. Braves pitchers struck out 13 hitters, didn’t walk any and allowed only one run and lost. That’s pretty mind-blowing. Not as mind-blowing as Jose Fernandez was, of course. He struck out 14 and allowed only three hits in eight shutout innings. And the game was so fast. Two hours and eight minutes. I mean, you could play this game almost five full times in the same amount of time it takes to play my new favorite song (be sure to watch through to the end):

Angels 7, Nationals 2: There went 499 and 500 for Albert Pujols. He has eight on the year and has an OPS of .956. Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got something to say, but nothing comes out when they move their lips — just a bunch of gibberish –and mother****ers act like they forgot about El Hombre.

Rays 7, Twins 3:  David DeJesus drove in three and David Price was effective, but let’s talk about the weird here instead: Price was hit by a comebacker right in the, urm, um, midsection in the top of the fourth. He was fine, though. This is why you wear a cup, gentlemen. Also, Great Moments in Instant Replay: Yunel Escobar took ball four, the umps were confused about the count, checked instant replay and still got the darn count wrong. Escobar ended up striking out on the 4-2 pitch.

Royals 8, Indians 2Moustakas’ three-run homer, Eric Hosmer had four hits and James Shields was on point. This has been the blueprint for the past couple of year, but only Shields has read the plans and adhered to them consistently before last night.

Reds 4, Pirates 1: Johnny Cueto with his second straight complete game. The only blemish here was a homer given up to Andrew McCutchen in the ninth.

Blue Jays 9, Orioles 3Brett LawrieMelky Cabrera and Edwin Encarnacion each hit homers. It was Encarnacion’s first of the year. He watched it go out and rounded the bases with his right-arm-cocked chicken wing thing. No one got in his face and barked at him afterward. They just played baseball. Imagine.

Tigers 8, White Sox 6: Miguel Cabrera finally woke up, going 3 for 5 with a homer and an RBI double. Of course, a lot of Tigers hit against Sox’ spot starter Charlie Leesman, who filled in for Chris Sale.

Cardinals 3, Mets 0: Adam Wainwright shut the Mets out into the seventh inning but had to leave when he hyperextended his knee fielding a ball. He says he’s OK. No one asked if the Mets think they’ll be OK after being shut out, but we presume so.

Yankees 9, Red Sox 3: Masahiro Tanaka continues to be relatively unimpressed with major league hitters. I’m sure he wouldn’t say that, but no one has really challenged him yet (7.1 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 7K 0 BB). The Yankees, meanwhile, scored eight runs — only three earned — off Jon Lester. Jacoby Ellsbury‘s return to Fenway in enemy colors started off well for him: he tripled to lead off the game and then robbed Grady Sizemore of a hit with a nice catch. He later hit a two-run double.

Editor’s Note: Hardball Talk‘s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $40,000 Fantasy Baseball league for Wednesday night’s MLB games. It’s $25 to join and first prize is $6,000. Starts at 7:05pm ET on WednesdayHere’s the FanDuel link.

Cubs 9, Diamondbacks 2: Mike OltMIKE OLT! — hit a three-run homer. The Cubs have won three of four. Arizona has dropped four straight.

Padres 2, Brewers 1: A Chase Headley homer in the 12th ended up winning it, but a big assist goes to the Padres pen who tossed six shutout innings. The Brewers’ four-game winning streak is snapped.

Rangers 5, Athletics 4: Former Athletic Mike Choice hit a two-run single in the ninth to help the Rangers rally. After the game he said “you always want to do something good against the ex.” I have no idea what he’s talking about. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go shave and put on my best clothes because my ex-wife has a meeting near my house this morning and I need to look my best on the off-chance that she stops by to say hi to the kids before they go to school.

Rockies 2, Giants 1: Always fun to see a pitching duel in Denver. Franklin Morales allowed one run on five hits over seven. Madison Bumgarner allowed two runs in eight. All the runs came on solo homers and the game was over in 2:41.

Astros 5, Mariners 2: Remember when people were all like “hmm, maybe the Mariners are better now” a couple of weeks ago? Haha, that was a riot. Collin McHugh was called up from Oklahoma City to take Scott Feldman‘s start and didn’t walk a batter while pitching into the seventh. The crowd at Safeco Field numbered 10,466 and was the fifth-lowest in park history. Six of the seven lowest have come when the Astros were in town. Some draw, eh? The Mariners have dropped eight in a row and ten of eleven, however, so that crowd ain’t all on Houston.

Phillies 3, Dodgers 2: The Dodgers were shut down by the Phillies’ starter for the second straight night — this time A.J. Burnett — but really lost this when Carl Crawford and Hanley Ramirez got their wires crossed on a short Carlos Ruiz fly to left in the 10th. The next man up, Domonic Brown, doubled him in.

  1. renaado - Apr 23, 2014 at 6:44 AM

    Braves vs Marlins game there is freakin epic! Every pitch truly puts me at the edge of my seat, not to mention both teams combined 28 strikeouts in that game. I really love games like this especially a pitching duel bein shown to it’s finest.

    • aresachaela - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:05 AM

      If you want me to put a cherry on top of that, NO WALKS ON BOTH SIDES XD!!

      • mgv38 - Apr 23, 2014 at 8:27 AM

        Doug Eddings being behind the plate helped.

  2. uyf1950 - Apr 23, 2014 at 6:46 AM

    Another quality outing by Tanaka. Four starts in his MLB career all 4 he went at least 7 innings and has an ERA of 2.15 and WHIP under 1. The offense is clicking with all 3 major position signings hitting very well. I think most would have to admit this is not your 2013 Yankees but a much improved team. A cood combination of pitching, defense, power and speed.
    Just one more word those of us myself included that thought Ichiro was done at this point have to eat our words. He’s doing very well also.

    • uyf1950 - Apr 23, 2014 at 6:47 AM

      correction: …”good” combination….

    • aresachaela - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:13 AM

      I really don’t want Ichiro to be gone with the Yankees or retired right now, I want to see him play there until he gets one of those prized World Series rings. ICHIRO-SAN!! GANBATTE KUDASAI XD!!

    • Kevin S. - Apr 23, 2014 at 9:12 AM

      But you see, UYF, he only did it against the Red Sox, a terrible, no good last place team. I mean, his 35/2 K/BB ratio, 2.15 ERA, 7.1 IP/GS and AL-leading 1.85 xFIP all look impressive, I’ll grant you, but he’s done it all against the Blue Jays, Orioles, Cubs and Red Sox. Are any of those in the top eight in runs scored? Nay, I say nay. If he faced a *real* offense, he’d be a maybe above-average starter. Checkmate, Yankee fans.

      • uyf1950 - Apr 23, 2014 at 9:25 AM

        My friend It’s a lucky thing you picked “top 8” and not top 9 because then the Jays would have made it. Maybe part of the reason none of those teams are in the “top 8” is because they faced guys like Tanaka and Pineda. Double Checkmate.

      • Kevin S. - Apr 23, 2014 at 9:28 AM

        Yes, I did that deliberately – I actually looked for the most ridiculous way I could exclude all four teams from the top-whatever offensive category. I’ve been finding I need to lay on a triple layer of sarcasm these days for people to get it.

      • aresachaela - Apr 23, 2014 at 9:31 AM

        I saw a lot of Tanaka’s games back in 2013 where he was undefeated there in Japan. Tanaka can take down any giants in Baseball, He’s tenacity and him striving to improve much more will help him win ballgames there in the US.

      • aresachaela - Apr 23, 2014 at 9:33 AM

        OH!! And checkmate!! Your king has been eaten XD!!

      • Kevin S. - Apr 23, 2014 at 9:36 AM

        Yeah, he’s been utterly ridiculous so far. I have no idea what level he’ll pitch at going forward, but so far it’s not a stretch to say he’s been the best pitcher in baseball in 2014.

      • spudchukar - Apr 23, 2014 at 11:14 AM

        It would be an incredible stretch to suggest Tanaka has been the best pitcher in Baseball to date. Even if one uses the questionable xFIP, he is a distant second to Fernandez, who has one more start.

        Other metrics, some of which are more telling, early in the season, rate Tanaka much lower. He is 27th in ERA, among pitchers with 4 or more starts, 19th in FIP, and tied for 8th in WAR.

        No doubt Tanaka is off to a great start. His walk rate is especially impressive. But like many asserted, his fastball is still straight, and when he makes a mistake with it Big Flies are likely, thus his 4 HRs allowed.

        To his credit 3 out of 4 starts have been against good offensive teams in 2013. That may not end up so and certainly wouldn’t include the Sox in 2014, and the O’s aren’t showing much thump either, but his efforts haven’t come against chumps in 75% of his outings.

        But to date, Lee, Archer, Sanchez, Eovaldi, Hernandez, Wainwright, Sale, Gray, Darvish, Kazmir, Ryu, Perez, Lester, Buehrle, T. Wood, McCallister, Strasburg, Harang, Vargas, Cueto, Samardzija, Chavez, Gallardo, Feldman, A. Wood, Tillman, Wacha, Teheren, Shields, Volquez, Mefjia, Cashner, Ross, and Kohler can make valid arguments that they have been as good or better.

      • uyf1950 - Apr 23, 2014 at 2:50 PM

        Whether Tanaka is the best, 2nd best or the 100th best pitcher right now isn’t really the point. The point is he’s pitched outstandingly in 4 consecutive games his only 4 games as a MLB player. And I doubt there is a MLB team, GM or Manager that wouldn’t love to have him on team.
        As for right now I’ll take the roughly $25MM per it cost the Yankees to sign him (contract plus posting fee) over the 10 year deal the Mariners gave Cano every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

      • spudchukar - Apr 23, 2014 at 4:51 PM

        Which might be meaningful if it in any way related to what I wrote. I realize any constructive criticism regarding the play of Pinstripe players, comes with the automatic UYF defensive barrage, but I guarantee you the St. Louis Cardinals would be the first to take you up on your challenge. We have plenty of Tanakas, but no Cano.

    • unclemosesgreen - Apr 23, 2014 at 9:41 AM

      Tanaka’s last professional loss came 8-19-12. Since then he’s 31-0.

      If Pineda stays healthy, that would make 2 very good starters 25 years old or younger. They could be fun to watch for a long time.

      • Kevin S. - Apr 23, 2014 at 11:11 AM

        Didn’t he lose a playoff start last year? Not that pitcher wins mean dick (hi, Alex Wood!), but, you know, accuracy and all.

      • unclemosesgreen - Apr 23, 2014 at 11:15 AM

        No one counts playoffs for anything when it comes to streaks. What a totally pointless, nit-picky comment. It actually makes me a little sad for you.

      • Kevin S. - Apr 23, 2014 at 11:22 AM

        The NCAA does (more nit-picking!), but more to the point you said he hasn’t lost a professional start since 2012. That’s factually inaccurate. And with that, I’m done arguing about pointless statistics.

      • moogro - Apr 23, 2014 at 1:25 PM

        More meaningless:

        Longest pitcher win streak:
        New York Giants‘ ace Carl Hubbell won 24 games in a row over the 1936 and 1937 seasons. The streak spanned 27 games – including two saves and a no decision.

      • unclemosesgreen - Apr 23, 2014 at 1:30 PM

        That streak also spanned approximately 2,000 screwballs.

  3. janessa31888 - Apr 23, 2014 at 6:53 AM

    Id like to know where our starting rotation ranks right now. Its got to be near the bottom. Danny Salazar just doesn’t have it right now (or Carrasco or Kluber either). And of course, two thirds of the lineup cant hit right now either. Yep, I can see why we were predicted to finish third this season. I know, I know, its only April, but there isn’t much to be excited about around here.

    • uyf1950 - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:03 AM

      If you’re really interested the Indians starters rank 28th out of the 30 MLB teams in ERA and WHIP and 27th in IP’ed. But it still is very early in the season plenty of time for them to come around. Good luck,

      • janessa31888 - Apr 23, 2014 at 3:06 PM

        Thanks. Currently its been Zach and pray for rain.

  4. Old Gator - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:00 AM

    El Keed made the Braves look even worse last night than he did on that epic night back in September when he violated all those unwritten rules and engendered the juvenile ire of twin-soul jackwagons Wuss Johnson and Mudhead McCann. And you could see in his expression when he walked out there at the beginning of the game that that’s exactly what he intended to do. His fastball, hitting 100 on several occasions, must have looked smaller than a Higgs boson to the Atlanta wanna-hitters; his changeups in the high eighties must have seemed to be stopping in mid-air before proceeding by comparison, and some of his sliders and curveballs were breaking towards Salty’s target like wire-guided antitank rockets. Eleven of his fourteen Ks ended with it.

    And it’s lucky he was that good because his teammates were having their own problems with Braves starter Alex Wood, he of the Roberto Benigni windup, who lost his second 1-0 decision this season. Interessin’ note: this was ackcherley the Feesh’s first win on the road all season. It hauled them up to proximity with the strange attractor again. Tonite I guess we find out of the fox can finally reach the grapes. A win coupled with a Feelies loss would enable them finally to stick their heads out of the basement again.

    • groupofsevenrules - Apr 23, 2014 at 8:23 AM

      Only three more nights of late shift and then I can get back to relaxing with a brew and watching some ballgames as they actually happen. I need sleep too badly right now to replay this game but it looks like a true classic. Your Keed is truly amazing, Gator – but is he enough to save the team’s season? I doubt it. Colour me skeptical.

      Meanwhile I will dream of dancing sugarplums and Casey Janssen striding in from the pen once more. Some day. Over the rainbow….

    • Francisco (FC) - Apr 23, 2014 at 10:18 AM

      Aha, another OG post I read without having to Google anything. I should get a gold star or something.

      • Old Gator - Apr 23, 2014 at 2:10 PM

        No one gets gold stars anymore. They get microchipped.

    • nbjays - Apr 23, 2014 at 1:55 PM

      Gator, some of that stuff El Keed was chucking up there looked like Bugs Bunny pitches.

      • Old Gator - Apr 23, 2014 at 2:18 PM

        You checked the video, eh? Yeah, how in Buddha’s name would you hit that stuff? I don’t know if you’re old enough to remember an ancient Ivan Tors-created TV series called The Man and the Challenge, starring George Nader and your countrywoman Joyce Meadows as the Platonic love interest (there was no other kind on TV in the late 1950s – even married couples had separate beds). Well, there was one episode where Dr. Glenn Barton (Ging) took a drug that slowed his perceptions down so much that if you shot an arrow past him he would see it approaching so slowly that he could grab it by the shaft in mid-air. (If I’m not mistaken, the point of this exercise was to help the highway patrol catch a lunatic named “the Dropper” who would attract a motorcycle cop by speeding, then kill the cop by dropping logs out the back of his car through a hatch in his trunk).

        Anyway, maybe if the Braves took some of that stuff they would be able to hit El Keed. Otherwise, they’re just gonna have to wait for him to break another unwritten rule and throw another distracting hissy fit.

      • nbjays - Apr 23, 2014 at 3:50 PM

        Late 1950s? That was just a bit before my time; I’m a 1962 model year.

  5. dan1111 - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:01 AM

    Is it wrong that I am really enjoying the Diamondbacks’ season so far?

    • Old Gator - Apr 23, 2014 at 8:16 AM

      Nope. They earned your derision with all their silly Rambo posturing. Now their record is the statistical equivalent of Jan Brewer’s complexion.

    • stex52 - Apr 23, 2014 at 8:24 AM

      Probably. But who cares? In the privacy of our own homes we can root any way we want.

    • Kevin S. - Apr 23, 2014 at 9:14 AM

      Rany basically asked the same question on Twitter the other day. As I said to him, if that’s wrong, I don’t want to be right.

  6. aresachaela - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:01 AM

    YEANKEES WIN!! What an amazing outing by Ma-Kun against the Redsox right there, 7 1/3 innings striking out seven giving up only 2 runs both back to back shots against Ortiz and Beard man there! Guess I’ll be buying Momoiro Clover Z Cd’s right now!! HAHAHAHAHA XD!!

    • renaado - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:18 AM

      Achaela, if you do wanna have some Momoiro Clover Z cd’s like you said here. I’d suggest you just have to download it on your phone, cause buying a cd like that here in the Philippines is like finding a Jeter signed autograph ball in a trash.

      • aresachaela - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:26 AM

        HAHAHAHAHA XD!!!!!!! You fall for it again Ren!! I may be a Yankees and Ma-Kun fan, but I don’t wanna download a song that I don’t even understand XD.

      • renaado - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:48 AM

        Cut me some Achaela, your jokes truly are “cough” the best that I didn’t even knew you were even makin one.

      • aresachaela - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:54 AM

        That “cough” is highly SUSPICIOUS!! HAHAHA XD!!

    • gloccamorra - Apr 23, 2014 at 4:40 PM

      So, I guess you’re not worried about the Yankees’ negative run differential?

  7. detroitr1 - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:24 AM

    Not too long ago, the Blue Jays had a game in freezing temperatures at Target field and their bullpen had a rough outing. At the time, I thought ‘yeah, that was one bad outing, but has anyone seen Phil Coke pitch on a nightly basis?’

    Last night, Verlander leaves the game and the score was 8-2. Phil Coke exits without completing his inning and it’s 8-6.

    At least Miggy found his swing again.

    • philliesblow - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:31 AM

      I knew there was a reason this advertising phrase wasn’t used anymore….

    • historiophiliac - Apr 23, 2014 at 8:29 AM

      What was Beautiful Brad thinking??? Ok, Coke gets a couple of outs but after he gave up 2 hits — why didn’t he pull him then? I have no idea why he did not pull him sooner. And, also, why they keep going to him? That was so infuriating.

      • timmmah10 - Apr 23, 2014 at 9:30 AM

        Hist – Brad gave Coke just enough rope to hang himself with. Expect a release or DL stint…

      • stex52 - Apr 23, 2014 at 10:17 AM

        I expect TImmah is right. Brad has to make some decisions. He was afforded the luxury of a big lead and he took it to give Coke his chance. Pretty sensible to me.

      • historiophiliac - Apr 23, 2014 at 10:29 AM

        I really don’t understand why he had to give him a chance. I knew what Choke was going to do. How do they not?

        Also, this butts us back up against our ongoing problem, which is they did NOT beef up the BP enough this off-season. Putkonen is on the DL. We may lose Reed. Rondon is out. Joba is our workhorse? Sigh.

  8. proudlycanadian - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:34 AM

    All 12 runs in the Jays / Orioles game were the result of 3 run homers. Cruz got things started with a blast against Dickey. Encarnacion’s homer tied the game. Lawrie’s homer gave the Jays a 3 run lead and Melky’s homer ended the scoring. 4 three run homers in one game is very unusual.

    • nbjays - Apr 23, 2014 at 11:38 AM

      Yep! Jays win the battle of the 3-run dingers, 3 to 1.

  9. proudlycanadian - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:38 AM

    It is a bit early to say that the Last place Red Sox must have at least a split in the remaining 2 games of the Yankee series as thy are only 3.5 games behind; however, a Yankee sweep would leave the Sox 5.5 games back. On paper, the match ups of Pineda against Lackey and Sabatha against Dubront seem to favor New York.

    • uyf1950 - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:58 AM

      Hello my friend. While the Yankees starting pitching with just a few exceptions has looked very strong compared to the Red Sox another major difference in the Yankees success has been their offense. The Yankees are outperforming the Red Sox in virtually every major offensive category there is. Hopefully they can keep it up.

      BTW looks like the Jays have finally gotten the monkey off their backs with a pretty decent start this year. Good luck to your guys. You will have to forgive me if I hope the Jays only finish in 2nd place in the AL East and make the postseason that way at the end of the year.

      • proudlycanadian - Apr 23, 2014 at 8:01 AM

        Of course, I will “forgive” you. On the other hand, I am hoping for a finish higher than second place.

      • uyf1950 - Apr 23, 2014 at 8:13 AM

        @ proudly, I would expect no less from you or Jays fans.

    • aceshigh11 - Apr 23, 2014 at 11:23 AM

      No, I don’t think it’s too early, especially not with the way they’re playing. If they want any hope of contention later this year, they cannot dig themselves into a hole that deep this early.

      No one in the AL East is running away with the division, but no one can afford to sink too deep too early, either.

      • [citation needed] fka COPO - Apr 23, 2014 at 12:19 PM

        One thing working in the AL E’s favor is that no one outside of Oak is really running away with it. TX is a half game ahead of the Yanks and Detroit is 1.5 games behind. It’s an entire league of parity.

  10. chip56 - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:57 AM

    Re: Encarnacion.

    You’re right Craig, he ran around flapping his arm and the O’s didn’t care. On the other hand Nelson Cruz, Carlos Beltran and many others hit home runs last night jogged around the bases, exchanged high-fives and sat down. Does that mean they don’t enjoy playing the game as much as Encarnacion?

    • Old Gator - Apr 23, 2014 at 8:11 AM

      I don’t know. It’s your straw man. Why don’t you tell us, you nitpicking, bloviating ass?

        DH, now you are a caricature of yourself. We all know you do nothing but repeat yourself here, but to today you have taken it to a new level.

      • chip56 - Apr 23, 2014 at 12:53 PM

        So what you’re saying is that you don’t know the meaning of “strawman” “nitpicking” or “bloviating”? Because you used all three incorrectly.

      • Old Gator - Apr 23, 2014 at 2:08 PM

        Nope. “Strawman” is an argument that wasn’t there in the first place and which you created for the sake of being able to belch bile while attributing an inference to Craig’s post that wasn’t there in the first place; “Nitpicking” is singling out little details and inflating them to the stature of important points in a discussion. “Bloviating” means shooting your mouth (or keyboard) off loudly in a ranting or sanctimonious way. I used all three correctly. And you performed all three transparently.

    • nbjays - Apr 23, 2014 at 11:40 AM

      Flapping his arm? Either you are watching a different Encarnacion or you need your meds adjusted.

      • chip56 - Apr 23, 2014 at 12:54 PM

        I didn’t watch it – I based my “flapping his arm” off of Craig’s “chicken wing” comment.

  11. aceshigh11 - Apr 23, 2014 at 11:19 AM

    Good god, the Red Sox suck so far this year. This is embarrassing.

  12. happytwinsfan - Apr 23, 2014 at 11:21 AM

    i’m disappointed that i wasn’t able to make the ridiculously over the top post i had planned should the twins win, tigers, white sox, royals lose, leaving the twins in sole possession of first place. truth is i would have made it even had they wound up tied with the royals or white sox. i may yet get the chance.

    when the amazing young gibson looked to be taken off track by the failure to catch a high pop up in the first inning (they have a ball obscuring baggie on the ceiling of that place ??), i was thankful for the solace of the modern marvels 90’s tech episode. tonight’s alternative fare doesn’t look to be nearly as appealing. i’m counting on you boys!

    • Old Gator - Apr 23, 2014 at 2:09 PM

      Rest. Drink some wine. Take some vitamins. Come back tomorrow and let us have that raucous post. You know you can do it!

      • historiophiliac - Apr 23, 2014 at 2:18 PM

  13. APBA Guy - Apr 23, 2014 at 11:26 AM

    Was last night’s Texas/A’s game merely a replay of Monday’s game? It certainly seemed that way. Gregerson did what he’s been threatening to do all season: implode with the game on the line. Unfortunate timing. There is very little difference between the A’s and Texas this year. Again.

      two tough ones in a row. Last night is on the offense for not “stepping on the clutch” as Vince cotroneo (A’s radio #2 guy for those who don’t know) likes to say.

    Here on the west coast, I vacuumed and swept all the floors, cleaned up the kitchen, went to the grocery store, went to my doctor’s appointment, read ath… and I still have hours to go on the Bacon Pancakes video! It was good for housework, but when the house it quiet it is definitely challenging art. It’s turning me into Marina Abramovic.

    BTW, the ex- comments are really honest and funny.

    Dee Gordon stole the Dodgers back into the game, Crawford kept giving it back. He’s pretty good this year. As I try on this Dodger fandom thing, it can hurt. But not as bad as loving on Twins.

      The problem with the ex comments is that “best clothes” probably meant cargo pants and newest Batman t-shirt.

      You can get the Dodgers on TV? If so, you’re one of 11 people in Los Angeles.

    So as for David Price…would that be scored as a base on balls?
