AL EAST

Tampa Bay (1-0) at Baltimore

TB   0 0 0 0 4 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 - 5
BAL 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 4

W-Colome (1-0)
L-Gausman (0-1)

HR-Schoop (1), Davis 2 (2), Casali (2), Jaso (1), Joseph (1), Longaria (1)
SB-Parades (1)
E-Kiermaier (1), Hardy (1)
GW-Longoria (1)

Evan Longoria's one out homer in the top of the seventeenth inning broke a string of eleven shutout innings by the Oriole bullpen, keeping the Rays in the winner's bracket of the AL East. All nine runs scored in the game were driven in by way of the home run, with Chris Davis' second blow of the game sending it to extra innings with two out in the bottom of the ninth.

AL WEST

Seattle (1-0) at Minnesota

SEA 0 1 0 0 0 4 0 0 3 - 8
MIN 0 0 2 0 0 0 1 0 0 - 3

W-Walker (1-0)
L-Gibson (0-1)

HR-Herrmann (1), Gutierrez (1)
E-Boyer (1)
GW-Gutierrez (1)

Franklin Gutierrez came off the bench to drive in five runs for the Mariners, and the pitch-to-contact Twins pitching staff was typically and predictably lacking against Seattle's power, The Twins led for more than half of the game after Chris Herrmann's two run homer, but the third time through the order proved devastating to Kyle Gibson, and Gutierrez put the finishing touch on the game with a three run shot in the ninth.

NL EAST

Atlanta (1-0) at Miami

ATL 4 1 0 0 0 0 3 0 0 - 8
MIA  0 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 2 - 4

W-Teheran (1-0)
L-Koehler (0-1)
S-Cunniff (1)

HR-Garcia (2), Mathis (1)
SB-Peterson (1)
GW-Garcia (2)

Tom Koehler is dreadful and the Braves pummel the overwhelmed Marlins. How dreadful? Julio Teheran, the winning pitcher for Atlanta and noted poor hitter smacked two doubles off the wild Koehler (5 walks in 3 IP.) Later reliever Edwin Jackson added a two run double off Miami reliever Mike Dunn. But really the red hot Adonis Garcia's first inning grand slam was about all the Braves needed, although the Fish scrapped late to make it semi-respectable off of Atlanta's not too respectable long relievers.

I know there are folks who seem to dislike extra inning games, but aside from those instances when they come at inconvenient times (one more before bed) I really find them entertaining. May play havoc with both teams' bullpens though. Now that I think about it, it is probably one of my longer games, quite possibly the longest in these tournaments. I'll have to look it up at some point.

NL WEST

Milwaukee (2-0) at Arizona

MIL 0 2 0 0 2 1 1 0 0 - 6
ARI  0 0 2 0 1 1 0 1 0 - 5

W-Lohse (1-0)
L-De La Rosa (0-1)
S-Rodriguez (1)

HR-Lind (2)
E-Segura (1)
GW-Lucroy (2)

Not exactly a back and forth affair (the lead never actually changed hands after Lind's homer) but a tight one nonetheless. Jonathan Lucroy's two run double in the fifth put the Brewers ahead, and every D-Back thrust was met until the end of the game, when K-Rod shut the door. Lucroy ended the game with a couple of doubles and three ribbies, while battery mate Kyle Lohse was effective enough (5 IP/1 ER.) Brewers are now 3-0 and are hitting like the Wallbangers of old.

AL EAST

Baltimore (0-1) at Detroit (2-1)

BAL  0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 - 2
DET 0 0 0 4 0 1 0 0 X - 5

W-Gorzelanny (1-0)
L-Chen (0-1)
S-Feliz (1)

HR-Romine (1), VMartinez (2)
E-Kinsler (1), Greene (1), Flaherty (1), Parra (1)
GW-VMartinez (2)

A flub in the outfield by the usually reliable Gerardo Parra opened the door for the resurgent Victor Martinez, and that one poor inning doomed the Orioles and ushered them out of the tournament. V-Mart doubled home the "other" Martinez (JD) and utility man Andrew Romine belted a three homer a couple of batters later to seal the deal. Detroit got another fine performance from it's beleaguered bullpen; five relievers threw five scoreless innings, punctuated by Neftali Feliz, who turned back the clock by striking out the side. The elder Martinez added a homer later in the game, and looks more like his 2014 version when he roped all offerings, bad news for the AL East.

AL WEST

Minnesota (0-1) at Oakland (2-1)

MIN  0 0 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 - 2
OAK 0 0 2 1 1 0 0 0 X - 4

W-Hahn (1-0)
L-Pelfrey (0-1)
S-Pomeranz (1)

E-Davis (1)
GW-Vogt (1)

Jesse Hahn pitched a marvelous 7 2/3 innings before tightness in his forearm forced his removal, and Oakland got enough situational offense to claim the victory and eliminate the Twins from the tourney. Steven Vogt drove home the game winner on a fielder's choice, and added an RBI double two innings later to pace the A's. Oakland turned four double plays in the game, and looks like a team that may sneak up on a contender or two if their young rotation can hold up. Or maybe that's just the wishful A's fan in me...

 
Jesse Hahn, Oakland P

I love 'em.  Especially for the ripple effect in managing subsequent games.

Routine is boring.

I didn't buy this game so I could manage everything on cruise control. biggrin

NL EAST

Miami (0-1) at Philadelphia (1-1)

MIA  0 2 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 - 3
PHI 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 4 X - 6

W-Gomez (1-1)
L-Barraclough (0-1)
S-Giles (1)

HR-Francouer (1), Asche (1), Altherr (3)
GW-Asche (1)

Adam Morgan of the Phils and David Phelps of the Fish both overcome so-so starts to set their clubs up for victory, but Jeanmar Gomez gives up a run scoring single to Christian Yelich to give Miami the late lead. Up a run in the bottom of the eighth, the Marlins turn to lefty Mike Dunn to face left handed-hitting Cody Asche. Asche turned Dan Jennings strategy on its head, taking Dunn deep for a game winning three run homer. It was the second game in a row Dunn was awful out of the pen, and two is all you get in this portion of the tourney. And someone throw a bucket of ice on Aaron Altherr; he is halfway to his 2015 home run total.

NL WEST

Arizona (0-1) at San Diego (1-1)

ARI 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 5 - 9
SD   1 0 0 0 0 2 0 1 0 - 4

W-Burgos (1-0)
L-Kimbrel (0-1)

HR-Pollock (1), Gyorko (2), Alonso (1)
SB-Amarista (1)
GW-Gosselin (1)

There is a strongly held belief among some baseball men that closers do not pitch well in non-save siutations. As if to prove that point, Craig Kimbrel, with his club deadlocked at four entering the ninth inning, proceeded to melt down in his non-save, but certainly critical appearance. He retired just one batter, but allowed five others to reach base, four of whom scored, and the Padres season was extinguished. Phil Gosselin's two run pinch single was the stroke of death, but Yasmani "El Tonque" Tomas and Jarrod "Longest name in baseball" Saltalamacchia contributed 3 ribbies a piece as the D-Backs stay alive. And extra props to Ambiorix Burgos, who got out of a bases loaded, no out jam with minimal damage in the eighth for a well earned relief win.

AL EAST

Tampa Bay (2-0) at Cleveland

TB   0 0 0 0 0 1 0 2 0 0 0 - 3
CLE 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 - 4
One out when winning run scored

W-Manship (1-0)
L- Andriese (0-1)

HR-Casali (3), Gomes (1)
E-Ramirez (1), Cabrera (1)
GW-Gomes (1)

If it's extras innings, it must be a Rays' game. One day after going 17 frames, Tampa forces OT again, as the unconscious Curt Casali ruins a terrific outing by Cory Kluber (7 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 9 Ks) with a two-run, pinch-hit dinger off Bryan Shaw. But Yan Gomes keeps the Rays from another dramatic win, ending things with his own walk-off in the eleventh, completing a three RBI afternoon at the Ballpark Formerly Known as the Jake.

 

Yan Gomes, Cleveland C

AL WEST

Seattle (2-0) at Los Angeles

SEA 0 0 2 2 0 0 0 0 1 - 5
LAA  0 0 0 0 0 2 0 1 0 - 3

W-Iwakuma (1-0)
L-Latos (0-1)
S-Wilhelmsen (1)

HR-Montero (1), Pujols (1), Morrison (1)
SB-Marte (2)
GW-Cano (2)

Robinson Cano and Jesus Montero both drove in a pair of runs, and Hisashi Iwakuma was solid enough (5 1/3 IP, 2 ER) to give the Ms their third straight victory. Injury-prone Angel starter Garrett Richards lasted one batter, and Matt Latos proved ineffective in his emergency role. Albert Pujols drove in a couple for the Halos, but it was not sufficient to keep the Angels of Anaheim out of the loser's bracket of the tournament.

NL EAST

Atlanta (2-0) at Washington

ATL   1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 - 2
WAS 1 2 0 0 0 0 0 1 X - 4

W-Scherzer (1-0)
L-Perez (0-1)
S-Papelbon (1)

HR-Taylor (1)
SB-Bourn (2)
E-Taylor (1)
GW-Escobar (1)

After a mildly rocky start, Max Scherzer pitches like one would expect, tossing eight innings with one earned run allowed, and scores a run to top it off. Denard Span crossed home twice for the Nats and reached base three times to pace the offense. The Braves bullpen did yeoman work after Williams Perez' predictably mediocre outing (2 2/3 IP, 3 ER), but Mad Max was just too tough.

 
Max Scherzer, Washington P
