Happy Dog-ust 1st!
It’s going to be a long month for the Minnesota Twins. Michael Pineda (4-5, 3.86 ERA) throws at Busch Stadium on Sunday, where the Red Birds always fly higher. Pineda has watched 19 runs score over his past 33 ²/₃ innings. The Cardinals weren’t exactly sellers at the trade deadline, but they are only a couple of games better than the Cubs, who sold everything but a bucket of bubble gum and sunflower seeds.
We had Adam Wainwright (8-6, 3.51 ERA) when he four-hit the “Guardians” over seven strong. Wainwright has allowed three runs over his past 14 frames. Taking the Cards, at home, for 20 units.
Home Sweet Home! After 670 days away, the Blue Jays are now 2-0 at the Rogers Centre after crowning the Royals 4-0. George Springer hit two dingers off K.C.’s Mike Minor. Alek Manoah pitched a gem, allowing just two hits over seven strong. Victory has us -983 kipkeinos.
