The Red Sox are on Fire

The Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox continued their winning ways, beating Tampa Bay 10-3 on Saturday. The Red Sox are now 7-1 to start the season, things seem to be clicking on all aspects of the game for this team. Both Chris Sale and David Price have been un-hittable in their first two starts of the season. David Price looks like he has what it takes to be a CY-Young candidate right now with a 0.00 ERA in 14 innings pitched. After a rough season, Xander Bogaerts is crushing the ball this year, hitting .371 in 35 at-bats with two HR and nine RBIs.

Shohei Ohtani

Contrary to how things have been going this season for Ohtani, he will be seen making his second start of the season at home against Oakland. Ohtani is crushing the ball at the plate with 18 at-bats this season and is hitting .389 with three HRs and seven RBIs. Giving him more home runs in his 18 ABs then the Miami Marlins have in their 273 ABs this entire season.

Brewers vs. Cubs

The Brewers-Cubs began their first series of the season in Miller Park on Thursday. The Cubs took game one of the series 8-0 with a great game from Jon Lester. Pitching six innings and only surrendering three hits while striking out six Brewers, Lester is looking really good on the mound right now. He also broke out his first bounce pass of the season, throwing out Braun at 3rd base.

The Cubs had no problem figuring out Brent Suter on Thursday, he went five innings giving up eight hits and five runs (four earned). The Brewers struggled on the mound, in the field, and at the plate on Thursday. The Brewers were able to bounce back Friday, after a short start from Woodruff, the bullpen was able to carry the load to the 9th inning where Orlando Arcia hit the game winner. Saturday was a great pitching performance for both teams. Davies made a much-needed six-inning start for the Brewers giving up one run. Darvish matched Davies inning for inning on the mound also going six strong innings and giving up one run. The Brewers were able to take the lead off of a Lorenzo Cain sacrifice fly to score Jett Bandy. To the 9th inning, we go with our new closer Jacob Barnes on the mound, this is where the wheels fell off…watch the Brewers give up four runs below.

Christian Yelich

Yelich was placed on the disabled list this morning, retroactive to April 5th with a right oblique injury. The Brewers are calling up right-handed pitcher Taylor Williams from triple-A Sky Sox. Williams the Brewers #18 prospect, was in his first year with Triple-A and has quickly made the jump to the MLB.

Andrew McCutchen

McCutchen has his welcome to San Fransico game against the Dodgers on Saturday. McCutchen had six hits on Saturday including a walk-off home run in the 14th inning.
