The Mid-Week Stretch

Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers faced the Reds for a three-game series at Miller Park this week. Overall, it was an awful series for the Brewers offense. They made the Reds pitching look like all-stars, and if it wasn’t for two 2-run home runs from Eric Thames on Tuesday and Wednesday the offense may not have scored a run those two games. Luckily, the Reds offense is just as bad, if not worse, then the Brewers.  A loss and two 2-0 wins against the Reds doesn’t sit well with me. They need to rebound against Miami this weekend.

Boston Red Sox

Boston continued their red-hot season, traveling to Anaheim and beating up on Shohei Ohtani Tuesday night. Ohtani faced his first team that wasn’t from Oakland, California this season and did not fare well, going 2 innings with 4 hits, 2 walks, and 3 earned runs. Including a lead-off home run to Mookie Betts who later on hit two more home runs on Tuesday night. Ohtani left the game after two innings with what they are calling a “blister.” The Red Sox won again Wednesday night against the Angels 9-0 improving to 15-2 this season. In two games the Sox have hit nine HRs and officially have the scariest offense in baseball. Will they go 160-2?

Bryce Harper

My NL MVP did some crazy, borderline dark magic stuff Monday against the Mets. Crushing a broken bat home run to right field of deGrom. You have to check it out below!

 

Cincinnati Reds

The Reds fired their Manager Bryan Price this morning after a bad season last year, where Price was rumored to be on the hot seat, and an even worse start to this season with a 3-15 record. Overall, Price was 279-387 and never really seemed like a good fit for the Reds.

Jed Lowrie

Jed has started this season hotter than anyone else in baseball, leading his Oakland Athletics team to a 9-10 start. In his 81 at-bats, Jed has 28 hits, 6 HRs, 21 RBIs with a .346 batting average. Leading the AL in hits, home runs, and runs batted in.
