TWIB Notes

Leading Off
In the middle of a mediocre season from pitcher Josh Lindblom of the Milwaukee Brewers a gem of a pitching performance sure helped things look a little brighter. He helped his team top the Colorado Rockies, 1-0, in National League action at American Family Field. In his stand out performance Lafayette, Indiana, native Josh Lindblom twirled a one hitter around three walks and seven strikeouts. The triumph puts Milwaukee at 54-38 for the season.Lindblom earned the win, going 8 strong innings for Milwaukee. Colorado hitters could do next to nothing against the right-hander.”Josh was throwing free and easy,” said Milwaukee manager .

Around the AL
In Houston the power was turned on before an electric crowd.  The  Houston Astros lit up home plate and pushed across twenty runs in a beat down of the  Detroit Tigers. Eight of the nine starting players in the Houston lineup had a hit in this game with many providing multiple hits in the outing.Cavan Biggio made an impact in the 20-3 Houston win over Detroit. Biggio, who is tied for 9th in the AL in runs scored with 61, was 4 for 5 with a home run, a double, 2 singles, and a walk. He scored 3 runs and drove in 5. The win gives Houston a season record of 56-39.Alex Bregman, who led the AL in wins above replacement with 7.5 in 2019, contributed to the Houston win with a 3-run home run in the bottom of the eighth. For the game, the third baseman had 3 hits in 6 at-bats with 2 home runs, 1 single, 3 runs scored, and 5 runs batted in.Nate (Astros) was complaining early in the season when he said, “This is now the 2nd draft in a row where I’ve lost my top pitching prospect for the year in the first sim.” This team hitting performance brings a smile to all our faces and we hope you approve as well Nate. It was great to watch.

What the CEL!
Las Vegas Gets Riveting Walk-Off Win. He is usually known for his speed but a 3-RBI performance from designated hitter Hernan Perez, who is tied for 10th in the in stolen bases with 3, led the Las Vegas Rat Pack to a win over the New Jersey Pioneers, 9-7. Las Vegas reliever Mike Hibbs picked up the win to move to 4-3. Williams Jerez suffered the loss. The Pioneers, now 26-50, have lost 4 in a row. Considering these losses are all against the same team, there is likely no reason for concern.Eddie Paxil NJ and Commish commented in his state of the league address.
“It’s going to be a big OMLB weekend. I finally had an idea on how to vote for realignment . I’m going to post the options in an article on the main website after doing the article points and link it in the vote. Look for that and a few other things this weekend.
