Just getting back from vacation? Let’s get updated. Marv Albert called his last game. Dylan Bundy puked all over the Yankee Stadium mound. ESPN is still the worldwide leader in in-house chaos. Bobby Bonilla got paid again for doing nothing. So did Mayor Bill de Blasio. And if you roughed it by spending your week camping outdoors, remember Trevor Bauer’s week was rougher than yours.
Believe it or not, the Marlins are as close to winning a division title as the Yankees. The Dodgers are in Miami, and they’re hot. Tony Gonsolin (1-0, 2.81 ERA) goes for L.A. Tony has made four starts this year, totaling 16 innings, striking out 22 but walking 13. The Fish hope Pablo Lopez (4-5, 2.97 ERA) can improve after throwing a one-hitter. Lopez hit Ronald Acuna Jr. with his first pitch and was tossed. Lopez allowed just two runs over his previous 13 innings, winning both games. Play 20 units on the home-dog Marlins.
Good game. Better result. Down 8-5, the Rays came back to clip Cleveland, 9-8. Brandon Lowe with a grand salami for Tampa. Comeback win has us at -1,353 beliveaus.
