Quick Recap of Last Night
Sonny Gray had his curve working, and cruised through 6 IP (3H, 1R, 2 BB, 9K) to lead the reds to a 7-1 stomping of the De2roit Tigers.
Dansby was 1-3, but that was about all the offense in this game. Mets won 1-0 on a Cespedes dinger.
The Buccos lost a close one to the Cards 5-4, and Bryan Reynolds had an 0-4 night.
The Dodgers stomped the Garlic Fries yet again (9-1 this time), and Yaz went 0-3 with a BB.
And if you stayed up late, you got to see former Vanderbilt commit Matt Olson walk it off with a grand slam in the 10th to give the A’s a 7-3 win over the Angels. With the lefty Andrew Heaney on the mound for the Angels, Kemp was on the bench, but he did come in to pinch run at one point.
