    Garrett is the starting pitcher tonight vs the Orioles. Big test for the rookie.

    yeah I would've benched him if I was at home earlier but he's doing fine so far. Neftali Feliz assured that my team is fucked up for the day though.

    Not bad. 12 K's through 7.
    2 runs.

    Reds can't score though. Jimenez shutting them down.

    My Royals are hanging in there. Up 1 on Bumgarner.

    They win this they are back to .500 within a reasonable division.

    Atlanta 1st Baseman Freddie Freeman has reached base in 12 consecutive plate appearances.

    His last 12 ABs went as follows:
    • Intentional Walk
    • Walk
    • Double
    • 2 Run Home Run
    • Double
    • Solo Home Run
    • Single
    • Walk
    • Walk
    • Single
    • Walk
    • Solo Home Run
    The MLB record is 17, set by the Orioles' Piggy Ward back in 1893.

    For the season, Freeman has a slash of .440/.553/.920

    Law enforcement sources tell us they spoke with multiple witnesses who said the woman was the aggressor -- and had spit several times and smacked the man before he retaliated.

    The 2 were cited for disorderly conduct and escorted out of the stadium.

    Not a fan of hitting a chick - better to just walk away, tell the stadium officials and have her removed. But it doesn't matter who you are...if you push it far enough, eventually someone will pay it back to you in spades.

    If you spit on someone you deserve to get punched, sex doesnt matter at that point.

    That would take a lot of restraint.

    Chris Sale is mowing people down so far this year for Boston.

    In 4 starts he's pitched 29.2 innings, given up only 15 hits and has 42 Ks with an ERA of 0.91
    His pitch count in those 4 games : 102, 111, 108 and 104.

    He served up a Golden Sombrero to Joey Bautista last night.

    Nice seats! Gotta love a pitching duel.
    What the hell is Escobar doing in this pic? Haha.

    He is doing what the Royals do best this year, not hitting.

    I did, but luckily the first 9 innings went so fast it really wasn't as late as I thought it'd be.

    LOL, not sure. He's a good guy. He threw balls out to every Royal fan or kid he saw. We scored two of them. One from Escobar and wife snagged a foul ball.

    I will give the Royals players alot of credit for being fan friendly. The core of the team was playing 5 years ago when they really sucked so they know how awful it is playing in front of 10,000 fans a night. Sal Perez could murder someone at home plate and people would find a way to justify it.

    Madison Bumgarner has been placed on the DL.

    He hurt himself in a dirt bike accident. Bruised ribs. Sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder.

    a guy like that shouldn't be allowed to even get near a bike at this time of the year.

    I'm a longtime proponent of "What happens in April means nothing" but fuck me the Jays are absolutely horrid.
