TWIB Notes- Phillies Edition

The Hits! Cedric Mullins, the Baltimore Orioles center fielder, was 2-4 with a triple and a double, while scoring 2 runs and the Baltimore Orioles beat the the Washington Nationals. These two teams will be aligned together next season, so are more fireworks like this expected?

The Runs! Mitch Garver helped his team muscle past the Philadelphia Phillies, 9-6. The San Francisco catcher belted 3 home runs. He drove in 5 runs and scored three times. This from @Johnny Rose – Blue Jays and TWIB Reporter, “He was running here, he was running there, he made the bases look like a track meet. Speaking of meeting him, I sure would. I would like to meet him in our dugout. Call me Mitch.”

“Strikeouts and Season ending plays! We have it all on This Week in Baseball, Phillies Edition!”

LEADING OFF!
Padres Top Dodgers in Extra Innings. The San Diego Padres extended their winning streak.

The San Diego Padres got a stellar performance from pitcher Nate Pearson, who handcuffed the Los Angeles offense en route to a win, 5-2, at Dodger Stadium. Taylor Williams earned his 2nd save in 3 chances.

San Diego needed the clutch hitting of Victor Caratini to notch the win. The catcher hammered a 3-run home run in the top of the 11th inning to put the Padres on top, 5-2. For the game, Caratini had 1 home run and 1 single in 5 at-bats.

“A new role we have decided to accept with open arms is being a thorn in LAs side for as long as humanly possible. A little taste of their own medicine, so to speak.” said @DP – Padres.

Around the AL
Yankees Top Athletics, 6-0, Behind King! Michael King pitched a gem in leading New York to a 6-0 victory over the Oakland Athletics. New York is now riding a 4-game win streak.

King, now 8-2, scattered 2 hits over 8 innings for the Yankees.

“This level of focus will win us a lot of ballgames,” King said after the game.

What the CEL!
The Las Vegas Rat Pack downed the New Jersey Pioneers and clinched the season series 2-0. Yes that’s right the Rat Pack has won the season series once again over the New Jersey Pioneers, their expansion counterparts. What do you win @Leitao – Rat Pack? The right to pick 33rd instead of 34th in the rookie draft! Good Work!

“That’s all for this Week folks! Join us again next week for This Week in Baseball, Phillies Edition!”
