And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

Jul 7, 2014, 5:00 AM EST

Corey Kluber AP

Indians 4, Royals 1: You can’t stop Corey Kluber, you can only hope to contain him. And I don’t mean that in the ironic, 1990s-Dan Patrick way. I really mean it. He allowed only one run on four hits while pitching into the ninth while striking out 10 in this one, but he’s been doing this stuff all year. His record is only 8-6, but he has struck out 137 dudes in 125.2 innings while walking only 30. He’s sporting a 2.86 ERA and a WHIP of 1.18.

Marlins 8, ,Cardinals 4: Henderson Alvarez is the National League’s Corey Kluber (i.e. that dude you really didn’t realize was having a fantastic season, but by gum he sure is. One run allowed in seven innings here, a 2.27 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP on the season. While his record is nothing to write home about, the Marlins have won his last ten starts.

Angels 6, Astros 1: Garrett Richards allowed one run in seven and a third while striking out 11 and notching his tenth win of the year. His ERA is 2.71, his strikeout rate is great, he has the lowest batting average against in the AL and he doesn’t walk too many dudes. Didn’t make the All-Star team, though, because. Well, I don’t know exactly. He’s in that final five thing with a bunch of other pitchers, including our friend Corey Kluber, but gee zooey, what’s a guy got to do?

Pirates 6, Phillies 2: The sweep. Jeff Locke gave up two runs — only one earned — on three hits and a walk in eight innings. Both Marlin Byrd and A.J. Burnett returned to face their former mates in Pittsburgh. It went better for Byrd, who homered, than it did for Burnett.

Diamondbacks 3, Braves 1: The Braves’ nine-game winning streak comes to an end thanks in part to a two-run homer to Paul Goldschmidt. B.J. Upton‘s 11-game hitting streak came to an end too, thanks in part to B.J. Upton.

Mets 8, Rangers 4: The Mets scored five in the first and cruised from there. Which is probably the least Mets thing to happen in quite some time, but every dog has his day. Anthony Recker hit a three-run homer in the first. Recker? Damn near killed him! Wait.

Reds 4, Brewers 2: Jay Bruce was 0 for his last 26 before hitting a tie-breaking two-run homer in the eighth. That’s two of three from first place Milwaukee and 10 of 15 overall for the Reds. I feel like this NL Central race is gonna get freaky and crazy within the next month or so.

Nationals 2, Cubs 1: Denard Span‘s wheels helped win this one. He led off the eighth with a hit that would’ve been a single for most guys but he busted hard out of the box and just beat the tag sliding into second. Two outs and an intentional walk later, Ryan Zimmerman singled in Span for the go-ahead run. Otherwise, a nice pitching duel between Jake Arrieta and Jordan Zimmermann.

White Sox 1, Mariners 0: Hector Noesi is on his third team of the season and yesterday he faced his first team this season, shutting them out into the seventh inning. The Sox had just two hits and scored their lone run on a wild pitch. In other news, how a 1-0 game with only seven hits in it lasts close to three hours is a bloody mystery.

Editor’s Note: Hardball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $25,000 Fantasy Baseball league for Monday night’s MLB games. It’s $25 to join and first prize is $5,000. Starts at 7:05pm ET on MondayHere’s the FanDuel link.

Yankees 9, Twins 7: The Yankees took a 9-0 lead and then held on just hard enough as the Twins charged back. Jacoby Ellsbury homered, doubled and drove in four. More impressive: Derek Jeter and Ichiro Suzuki each had three hits. Not bad for a couple of dead guys.

Dodgers 8, Rockies 2:  Matt Kemp had four hits and drove in two, Adrian Gonzalez drove in three and Juan Uribe had three hits as L.A. takes three of four. Josh Beckett allowed three hits in five scoreless, but still threw 82 pitches and it took him around an hour and a half to get that far. This is somewhat comforting to me. I had begun to grow discombobulated by quick and efficient Josh Beckett starts. This, however unwatchable it was, does restore some semblance of normalcy to the cosmos.

Giants 5, Padres 3: Tim Lincecum would very much like to pitch against the Padres forever. Two starts after no-hitting them, he allowed one run while pitching into the seventh. Overall, Lincecum had tossed 23.1 scoreless innings before Brooks Conrad hit a homer in the seventh. After the game Bruce Bochy and Lincecum each talked about how this resurgence may be the real deal, and that after several years of talking about how he has to make adjustments and learn to reinvent himself, he finally has. I hope so, because I really think baseball is more fun when The Freak is dominating, but I think I need to see more than three starts against poor offenses before I’ll buy in.

Athletics 4, Blue Jays 2: Jeff Samardzija made his Oakland debut and he immediately showed why the A’s wanted him. He allowed one run on four hits and a walk in seven innings, helping the A’s finish off the sweep against the Jays. Samardzija also learned yesterday that he made the NL All-Star team. He won’t pitch, however, and he’ll actually be in the AL dugout. He’ll still get more run support doing that than he ever got in Chicago.

Orioles 7, Red Sox 6: The O’s and Red Sox played a day-night doubleheader on Saturday and then went 12 innings here. The Orioles blew a 6-1 lead in the seventh but then David Lough hit a triple in the 12th and then scored on a J.J. Hardy single to give Baltimore their sixth win in seven games.

Rays 7, Tigers 3: Rick Porcello had been on a roll, but his roll was slowed by the Rays, who scored seven runs on 11 hits off him. David Price, in contrast, was in control until the ninth when he gave up a leadoff homer and then lost his mojo and couldn’t get the complete game, but by then it was academic. Tampa Bay took three of four from the Tigers and have won 8 of 10 overall.

    “Derek Jeter and Ichiro Suzuki each had three hits. Not bad for a couple of dead guys.”

    Ichiro Suzuki is doin pretty well hittin .294 so far this year Craig, not to mention a .316 BA avg in the month of July. As usual he’s still a contact hitter and not drivin the ball out but he still finds away to put balls in play… He’s far from “dead” in Baseball, he can still play 3-5 yrs of Baseball unless his body tells otherwise, whether it’s in the Major Leagues or the NPB.

    And dang! 9 game winnin streak snapped for the Braves… Better look forward in the next game and put this one in the box.

    • unclemosesgreen - Jul 7, 2014 at 6:16 AM

      I really hope he plays a couple of bonus NPB seasons. I’d love to see him play OF / closer. He can pitch!

      • renaado - Jul 7, 2014 at 6:39 AM

        “I really hope he plays a couple of bonus NPB seasons.”

        There’s a high chance he will, Japan Times and Jsports has stated back in 2012 durin an interview that he’d consider playin back to his home country once he’s done with the MLB and play back again to the Orix Buffaloes for 1 year, the team where he first embarked on a wonderful and memorable journey in the Baseball world that opened the horizon of possibilities…

        A player/manager is a possible role if he comes back in Japan.

      • aresachaela - Jul 7, 2014 at 6:52 AM

        Ichiro-san DAME!! :-(

  2. miguelcairo - Jul 7, 2014 at 5:30 AM

    Boston in last place. Maybe if their bats were going as well as their mouths, they’d at least be better than Tampa, who’s 9-2 their last eleven.

    • unclemosesgreen - Jul 7, 2014 at 6:04 AM

      No one even knows if you root for a team because all you do is show up and throw shade. Your hate and ignorance are pathetic.

  3. unclemosesgreen - Jul 7, 2014 at 6:25 AM

    Yo Janessa – I know you’ve been ruthlessly conditioned to expect sports doom – but Corey Kluber is really really good. And so is Cody Allen. Have a good one.

  4. uyf1950 - Jul 7, 2014 at 6:28 AM

    The Yankees won but they made what should have been a laugher into a nail biter. It’s not the first time and I doubt it will be the last time that happens. But as they say a win is a win. Now they head to Cleveland for 4 games.

    • aresachaela - Jul 7, 2014 at 6:54 AM

      Kuroda got quacked out there.

      • Old Gator - Jul 7, 2014 at 11:42 AM

        AFLAC!

    • happytwinsfan - Jul 7, 2014 at 9:09 AM

      FYI
      We decided to give Jeter an extra special surprise gift. When the plane lands in Cleveland, you’ll find Nolasco in the pet section of the luggage area. Enjoy, he’s just adorable when he rolls the ball around and all he requires is twice daily litter changes and 42 million dollars over the next 3 1/2 years.

  5. aresachaela - Jul 7, 2014 at 6:49 AM

    Yes!! Above the .500 mark, Kuroda’s not at his best SO WHO CARES!? A win is a win and the offence is AMAZING XD!!

    • nbjays - Jul 7, 2014 at 9:46 AM

      Yankees offense hasn’t been “amazing” in a few years. Even with the home run friendly Yankee stadium, they have a losing record at home. When Yankee fans are celebrating one game over .500, you know the end times are approaching.

      • aresachaela - Jul 7, 2014 at 10:58 AM

        WHA!? But it was always high scoring games when I watch :-(

      • nbjays - Jul 7, 2014 at 12:45 PM

        Maybe so, but they still have a run differential of -32, meaning opponents have scored 32 more runs than they have over their 87 games. Believe it or not, that is a worse run differential than Tampa Bay.

      • proudlycanadian - Jul 7, 2014 at 7:56 PM

        Did you lose your power during the storm?

      • nbjays - Jul 7, 2014 at 10:46 PM

        Yeah, we were out from 6:30 Saturday morning until about 2:30 Sunday afternoon. Could have been a lot worse, as there are still lots of people without power and some estimates say it may be Wednesday or Thursday until everything is restored.

  6. unclemosesgreen - Jul 7, 2014 at 6:54 AM

    It is only fitting and proper that Brandon McCarthy should begin the process of Borg assimilation in the city where it all began for The Boss. We will see Wednesday if his new prosthetic arm and ocular targeting system are online and fully functional, but the real test doesn’t begin until he starts a game in the New Borg Collective Hyperspace Launch Pad.

    It should be noted that many assimilation attempts end in failure and what’s left of the organism is then discarded (see, e.g. Alfonso Soriano, Dean Anna.)

    Somehow the Borg will manage to avoid the robotic Corey Kluber impersonator who has been destroying the psyches of AL hitters for his last 43 starts. This will be assistive in their efforts to demonstrate the futility of all resistance. Borg is one.

    • aresachaela - Jul 7, 2014 at 7:10 AM

      Who/what the heck is a Borg?

      • unclemosesgreen - Jul 7, 2014 at 7:45 AM

      • aresachaela - Jul 7, 2014 at 8:00 AM

        This is AWESOME!! I really need to watch Startrek now XD!!

      • renaado - Jul 7, 2014 at 8:07 AM

        And I thought I was the oblivious one…

      • aresachaela - Jul 7, 2014 at 8:13 AM

        LOL LOL LOL.

        Sorry, wasn’t born when this came up, nor do you though.

    • lukedunphysscienceproject - Jul 7, 2014 at 9:21 AM

      I actually heard an explanation for this trade that made sense yesterday from the Yankees’ announcers. They basically said (and I am paraphrasing here)- “they both stink, but McCarthy can stink for more innings per start, since he is an actual starting pitcher”.

  7. Homesforsaleinfriscotx - Jul 7, 2014 at 8:19 AM

    ” but gee zooey, what’s a guy got to do?”

    Five year olds are cracking up all over America

  8. historiophiliac - Jul 7, 2014 at 8:26 AM

    Psst, your parenthetical is open.

    • Old Gator - Jul 7, 2014 at 10:47 AM

      And your question mark is hanging out.

      • jimeejohnson - Jul 7, 2014 at 10:52 AM

        You have succeeded in confusing second language learners.

  9. philliesblow - Jul 7, 2014 at 8:34 AM

    The only thing that lasted less time than Porcello’s shut out streak this weekend was the Ronda Rousey – Alexis Davis fight.

  10. Eutaw's Finest - Jul 7, 2014 at 8:39 AM

    In Florida just south of Tampa for the week with family and thoroughly enjoy sporting my “currently 1st place and I know it’s early but let me enjoy it” O’s gear around town! Fans around town remain very optimistic about their Rays with the way they are playing now. And rightfully so (not so much short term, more so long term and with the potential trade haul for Price after the A’s forked up their top prospect for JS and Hammel).

    On a side note I’ve tried to tune into the local sports station on FM. Very unimpressed. Makes me appreciate 1057 The Fan in Baltimore much much more.

    • historiophiliac - Jul 7, 2014 at 9:48 AM

      Speaking of sports coverage, I understand announcers not wanting to be homers, but yours have gone so far as to become jinxes, man. It was the 7th yesterday and they started in about hopefully being able to hang on to the lead — and then the Sox suddenly came alive. Then in the 9th they were like maybe we can hang on to it…which, of course, sent the game into extra innings. I swear, they should’ve been enjoying the lead instead of talking crap about potentially failing. Worst ever. If you can’t say anything positive, at least blather on about a clubhouse story or something. Don’t call a loss when you have a win. Dang.

      • unclemosesgreen - Jul 7, 2014 at 9:54 AM

        They were successfully executing a stealth reverse jinx.

    • indaburg - Jul 7, 2014 at 12:04 PM

      Welcome to Tampa Bay. Don’t ya know you’re supposed to visit in January, not “Holy !@#/ It’s Hot!” July? Sports talk radio in the area is not very good. I apologize on their behalf. I listen to the Rays flagship station, 620 am, if I must listen.

      We are a surprisingly optimistic bunch for fans of a team 9 games under .500. The Rays are 17 of 25 (where has this team been all year?!) We’re not in the cellar. We are on the first rung on the ladder out of the cellar. When we trade Price, we’ll get a nice haul. Trust in Friedman. Their current performance may be too little too late (although as unlikely as it is… who knows?) but the future is going to be fine.

  11. scoutsaysweitersisabust - Jul 7, 2014 at 8:39 AM

    O’s almost blew one, but then pulled it out in the end. David Ortiz slipped on Lackey’s tears as he rounded first in the bottom of the 12th and was thrown out by approximately 45 steps. Good series win to put the Sox in the basement and help cement our first place standing.

    It’s a quick turn around as the team has to head back home to face the Nats in a weird 4 game set in two cities. (Seriously, what’s up with this schedule, the O’s had a night game at home before a day game in Boston which thankfully got rained out and turned into a doubleheader, then extra innings before heading RIGHT back home.)

  12. stex52 - Jul 7, 2014 at 8:43 AM

    After three weeks of real excitement where the Astros showed signs of life and a future, things have taken a turn out back toward the bad old days. The wheels pretty much came off as when Dexter Fowler went on the DL. But it would be too much to blame on that. 2-8 and seven losses in a row are a sad splash of the reality that much is left to be done. Altuve continues to be the on-base machine. But Springer defines the concept of feast-or-famine. He had two home runs, three SB and five RBI last week, but 13K’s. Singleton may not be quite ready for prime time after all. But probably more to the point; starting pitchers are not getting that 6-7 innings it takes to make a whole staff solid, fresh and ready.

    Hitting a hot Angels team didn’t help. But it’s back to the MLB bottom rung, and a lot of us were hoping the dip wouldn’t be that deep again. Perhaps Fowler’s return will spark a lot of other, better efforts.

  13. thomas844 - Jul 7, 2014 at 8:56 AM

    The NL Central is the best, most competitive division in the Majors, no matter how much ESPN tries to shove the AL East down our throats.

    • proudlycanadian - Jul 7, 2014 at 9:02 AM

      The east coast bias is all about ratings.

    • emdash01 - Jul 7, 2014 at 9:30 AM

      The AL West has a case too, though.

      • thomas844 - Jul 7, 2014 at 10:27 AM

        I agree. The only reason I’d take the NL Central right now is that they have 4 winning teams in the mix while the AL West has 3.

      • jarathen - Jul 7, 2014 at 11:45 AM

        They’re easily the two best by run differential, but the AL West still “wins”, +107 to +76. The Rangers and Astros have horrible run differentials, but the A’s have a monstrously good one and the Angels and Mariners are pretty darn good, too. In fact, you can add the run differential of the three teams in the positive in the NL Central and come up with +62, which is still less than the Mariners.

        That being said, even the worst team in the Central, the Cubs, are only -13, which is of course light years better than -76 and -87.

        What this tells us is that the AL West has two awful teams, two very good teams, and one transcendent team. The NL Central has one good team, two fair teams, and two mediocre squads.

      • jarathen - Jul 7, 2014 at 12:41 PM

        I realize my math didn’t check out. The NL Central is +48. not +76.

        In other words, it’s not even close.

    • Old Gator - Jul 7, 2014 at 10:50 AM

      If you don’t like the taste of the AL East, try adding some razzberry flavoring…

      Nyuknyuknyuk….

  14. sometimesimisscandlestick - Jul 7, 2014 at 9:28 AM

    I would like to think that Timmy’s last three outings were the real thing too, but I’m still a little leery. If the Freak really has returned to form, then we may not have to look at acquiring more starting pitching for the stretch one, just one more good bat.

    • unclemosesgreen - Jul 7, 2014 at 9:55 AM

      I think this is his form – pitch well, pitch well, pitch well, blow up. Next blow up is right around the corner.

  15. historiophiliac - Jul 7, 2014 at 10:33 AM

    Shayna prognosticated last week that the Jays play to the level of their opponents, and I said we seem to do the same. This weekend was proof of that. We barely escape total loss to the Astros and lose the series to the Rays — the Rays! — but we sweep the A’s, who are a much better team, in between. Part of it is probably whatever rum and sacrifices burgie does, but clearly, we lack tWtW against non-challengers too. It makes me crazy.

    That said, you can’t leave men on base and expect to win. Also, clearly, fascism is fascism until someone connects, and then it all comes down like the Berlin Wall. Saturday, I assumed the team was just busy watching the World Cup like me (Oranje!), but yesterday, Porcello was handing out hits like candy at Halloween. My one consolation is that the Rays only got 7 runs out of 19 hits while we got 3 out of 7, which says something. Still, the lowlights were humbling. Speaking of, how embarrassing for Suarez. Does it get any sadder than falling down while running home on national TV? Poor kid. It was a great metaphor for the series though. Depressingly.

  16. clydeserra - Jul 7, 2014 at 10:44 AM

    This Jay’s -A’s series was the mirror image of the one at the rodgers centre. all the breaks went to the home team in either series.

    incidentally the run differentials in the series were by 1,2,3,and 4 runs.

    • Old Gator - Jul 7, 2014 at 10:52 AM

      That lacks the sublime symmetry of a Fibonacci series, but it’ll do OK for baseball.

      • clydeserra - Jul 7, 2014 at 10:56 AM

        I should note, they weren’t in order. 3, 1, 4, 2.

    • Shayna - Jul 7, 2014 at 2:30 PM

      Cue the gnashing of teeth and the rending of garments. I would ask what else could go wrong but I fear the Jays’ besetting demons would set about answering me. Oy! Especially painful was that 12-inning 1-0 loss over the weekend. Our pitching settles down, indeed–it starts looking respectable! and what happens? The bats die and the defence turns porous. Encarnacion out for weeks, Lawrie still weeks away, Lind hobbling like Quasimodo, and we’re so desperate for infield defence Gibbons sticks Bautista at first. A couple of pickups off the waiver wire but nothing substantial on the trade front. Colour me and other Jays fans a very dark blue.

  17. Old Gator - Jul 7, 2014 at 11:33 AM

    It was a surprising turnabout for the Feesh out there in Maull’s Barbecue Sauce and watery beer land. They bagged the series two t’ one, took down a really good reliever, put some serious runs on the board and handed Henderson Alvarez (of whom Corey Kluber is the imitation, not vice-versa) a victory. Speaking of which, the reason that Alvarez’ record is “nothing to write home about,” which should ackcherley be “nada que escribir a casa” to you, Jankee impeerialeest peeg, is that the boolpen has blown a such a triceratops pile of leads for him. So with a nice cushy seven run lead in the top of the eighth, how does Manager Mike instill a little excitement into a laugher? If you said, aw come on, he doesn’t bring in Goggles again, you were right! Two thirds of an inning later it’s 8-3 and Dan Jennings is out there trying to save a little wear and tear on Steve Cishek’s arm. Mission accomplished, more or less. There was nothing on Feesh Central this morning about Goggles being designated for collective amnesia, but one assumes that over the break the Feesh brainstem trust will assess the possibility of trading him to some local medical school for a fresher cadaver, or quietly having him whacked and dumped in the Everglades where the starving panthers, whose usual fare of raccoons and possums has been eradicated by pythons, can finish him orf if not.

    Even Signor Saltalamacchia pitched in yesterday. He dumped one over the fence for his first acute spasm of usefulness in nearly a month. I suspect seeing that scrawny spaventapasseri Yelich unload on one yesterday must have shamed him. Or maybe Salty made it through the stargate over to the Hill to Gian-Tony’s for some real Italian food and the homelike cooking reinvigorated him.

    And speaking of Italian food, Jimmee, if you’re out there this morning, here’s a great way to add some Pazuzu to your next meatball or eggplant hero: instead of slathering your hero roll with the quotidian matrix of butter, minced garlic and olive oil, try using bagna cauda instead. Here’s how: throw a half dozen or so nice sized garlic cloves, a sprinkle of crushed red pepper (or an eighth of a scotch bonnet, finely diced – wear goggles – a tin of flat anchovie fillets, including the olive oil, and maybe an additional tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil (that’s right, you’ll have to teach her to do everything, but the taste is sublime, especially with the anchovies) in a blender or food processor. Blend it on “liquefy.” Meanwhile melt a half a stick of butter in a shallow pan and then pour the anchovy and garlic blend into it, cook over very low heat until it bubbles, then let it sit and macerate for a while – preferably, until it reaches room temperature. Finish with a teaspoon (or more, to taste) of fresh squeezed lemon juice which you should stir in thoroughly. Pour into a container and chill in the fridge till it sets like butter. Then spread your hero roll generously with the stuff, put open faced under the broiler for a few minutes until the bagna cauda melts and the bread turns just a teensy bit crispy. Then grace with your favorite meatballs, or breaded eggplant slices, mozzarella and fresh grated Parmigian cheese (please, please, not that dried powdered stuff outta the plastic shaker jar) and a good kickass garden tomato or marinara sauce. Be sure to let it drip on your t-shirt while eating for the complete experience.

    So: now the Feesh head out to Phoenix for some smog n’ fun, to see if they can invert their won-lost record too, even if only by degrees.

    • happytwinsfan - Jul 7, 2014 at 11:43 AM

      You have inspired me yet again. White Castle for lunch today!

      • Old Gator - Jul 7, 2014 at 12:29 PM

        I once saw a fly land on a White Castle hamburger, walk around for a minute, and drop dead. I have since taken to leaving open faced White Castles around the house, and canceled our contract with Orkin.

        Incidentally, it seems to work really well on rats, too.

      • stex52 - Jul 7, 2014 at 1:17 PM

        That which does not kill me makes me stronger, OG. Not many White Castles around this neck of the woods. But I will pick up a bag if travelling through parts of the south where they are still common.

        I probably enjoy them because they are a rare-to-occasional indulgence. Familiarity might breed contempt.

      • historiophiliac - Jul 7, 2014 at 2:57 PM

    • groupofsevenrules - Jul 7, 2014 at 12:37 PM

      Exterminators aside, “bagna cauda” sounds like good stuff. I Googled it quickly and, apparently, there’s a Tuscan version made with heavy cream as well. I will make a batch this weekend. It is also used as a dip and a sauce. One online recipe suggests scrambling eggs with it. Now that sounds very, very nice.

    • umrguy42 - Jul 7, 2014 at 1:14 PM

      Knock the beer if you must, just don’t knock the Maull’s :p

  18. APBA Guy - Jul 7, 2014 at 12:25 PM

    Another very sunny day game, almost guaranteeing low scores at the Mausoleum. Interesting in that the first 8 innings were by new A’s pitchers, 7 from Sam and 1 from O’Flaherty. Toronto played, shall we say, “uninspired” yesterday, as if the loss of Encarnacion and the impeding escape from Oakland were of more immediate moment than the further drop in standings to the surging Orioles.

    Today begins the Bay Bridge series, with the rich kid Gigantes coming to the poor side of the tracks in Oakland. SF took two of three from SD over the weekend, so they are feeling good about themselves again, but their recent form has been horrible, something like a .300 winning percentage over the last 3 weeks. And without their igniter Angel Pagan, it could be a long Summer for a team that just a few weeks ago looked on track to return to the WS.

    Opposing the SF starter Ryan Vogelsong will be Jesse Chavez, who was retained in the rotation despite a concerning drop in velo. Brandon Moss-with a clear MRI yesterday-may get in a game this series, good news for the A’s.
