Let’s see owned baseball on April 22, 2019

Earning Full WOBs:

Dexter Fowler got 4 hits, including a homer, driving in 4 and scoring 3 as the Cardinals won a slug fest against division rival Milwaukee, 13-5.

J. A. Happ threw 7 strong innings, allowing 3 hits, 2 runs and struck out 5 Angels. He did not get the decision but the Yankees topped the Angels in 14 innings, 4-3.

Steven Matz held the Phillies to 1 run over 6 innings to earn the 5-1 decision for the Mets.

Jorge Polanco went 4 for 5 with a homer, 4 RBI and 2 runs scored to lead the red hot Twins past Houston, 9-5.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Brian Dozier reached base 3 times, including a homer, in the Nationals 7-5 loss to the Rockies.

Hunter Dozier went 2 for 2 with a homer and a walk but the Royals dropped the 6-3 game to Tampa Bay.

Matt Harvey allowed just 3 hits and 2 walks over 6 innings, striking out a pair of Yankees. The Angels fell in 14 innings, 4-3.

Joe Musgrove threw 6 strong innings, allowing 3 hits and struck out 5 Diamondbacks along the way. But the Pirates bullpen melted down in the lopsided 12-4 final.

Nobody cares if you report a trade or signing first. Meanwhile the Happ for Saunders deal is odd and why weren’t the Yankees in on Nick Markakis?

It is a first reported episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Hey Phillies… you call this a Pennant Defense?

Seriously… I thought you guys were ready for a 3rd straight World Series appearance going into this weeks series against the Astros, who aren’t exactly world beaters.

On Monday the Phillies were 2 1/2 games out of first place and were up 3 games in the loss column over the Giants.

And the Braves were thrashed apart by the Rockies, including blowing a 10-1 lead yesterday. This should have been the moment that the Phillies made their big move in the standings.

And what did they do? They dropped FOUR AT HOME TO THE ASTROS!!!!

They not only GAINED nothing but they let the Giants tie them in the loss column for the Wild Card.

They got great starts out of Blanton and Hamels and a monster clutch homer out of Jimmy Rollins. And tonight had Roy Halladay against former Phillie J. A. Happ.


And now they have to go west and play the Padres. This SHOULD have been the week where the Phillies made a run at the best record in the National League… instead of wondering if the Giants, who are hosting the lowly Diamondbacks, will overtake them.

Then again, the Diamondbacks could be a problem for the Giants… they have nothing to lose… just like the Astros.
