Matt Strahm San Diego Padres

A home run by Suarez in the first inning the only blemish on his pitching line over eight. Desclafani also pitched well. The only other run over nine innings came on a Tatis homer in the third. Dietrich homered in the top of the 11th with a man on. Tatis walked in the bottom of the 11th and stole his way around to third, then scored on a ground out by Hosmer.

So two outs, down a run, the bases empty. Time for the mellow crowd of 33,000, what's left of it, to clear out of Petco, right?

Nope. Machado was the next batter. He singled to left on a 1-0 pitch. Will Myers was up.

He took a mighty cut at the first pitch, a 93 mile-an-hour slider from Lorenzen, and fouled it back.

He took the next three pitches -- all borderline 97 mph fastballs -- for balls.

With the count 3-1, he swung right through a 93 mph slider down the heart of the plate.

With the count full, he swung more cautiously at a 92 mph slider, but this one had perfect location, down and away, and he missed it.

Now the few remaining Padre fans could go home.

If I had more time, I'd watch the condensed game to see I have this right.

When I see what looks like a great game, I love to read the play-by-play at ESPN and imagine the action.

Seth Lugo New York Mets

Vargas pitched better for four innings than Lugo did for two, but Lugo gets the W. Rules are rules.

Grayson Greiner Detroit Tigers

As I think about it some more, I'm wondering if I blurted out $3 because I noticed Greiner's slash line in spring training.

I don't think I did. 

And I still wish I got Phegley.

Alex Patton Alex

Hit his first homer of the year last night. In three games this week is hitting .455. When I put in a $6 bid for Phegley on Monday, finally giving up on Greiner, who I unaccountably spent $3 to buy in the auction (the bid you see above was the bid on my sheet), I realized, the baseball gods being what they are, the hits would immediately start dropping in. 

Fortunately someone else bid $7 for Phegley.

Corbin Burnes Milwaukee Brewers

11 HR in 17 innings pitched has to be some sort of record.  

Gary Cruciani Megary
Kyle Higashioka New York Yankees

Struck out three times against the Royals last night. No one else on the Yankees struck out once.

Corbin Burnes Milwaukee Brewers

Sent to San Antonio yesterday. He wasn't great in spring training but there's nothing that suggests the looming disaster. You could even say he was the victim of an unlucky BABIP.

Michael Lorenzen Cincinnati Reds

We should get his pitching stats tomorrow.

Cincinnati Reds β€” The Reds used Raisel Iglesias and Jared Hughes to get through the tied ninth and tenth innings, so when the Reds scored two in the eleventh, they used Zach Duke and Michael Lorenzen to close things out. Duke retired two, but Fernando Tatis Jr. scored on a walk, two stolen bases, and a groundout. Lorenzen came in and got the last out after a single. Lorenzen has gotten into a lot of games for the Reds β€” not always as a pitcher β€” but he’s not in the hierarchy at this point. 

Hierarchy remains: Iglesias | Hughes | Garrett.

Charlie Blackmon Colorado Rockies

Two outs in the bottom of the 12th, runner on first, team traiing by a run, the count 1-2. What were the odds Blackmon would hit his first homer of the year?

Not great, but that's what he did.

Phillies collected 17 hits and left 19 men on base.

Showing the highlights -- and the low -- takes 3:34.

Cody Allen Los Angeles Angels

Pounded in the ninth. Ty Buttrey owners rejoice.

No, I'm not one of them. But I do have Hansel Robles and think I'll hang onto him for another week.

Alex Patton Alex

A tough start for the Oracles, no denying it.

But notice who got Jordon Lyles on Sunday.

An $11 overbid. No one's perfect.

Ty France San Diego Padres

The struggles of Kinsler and Urias have prompted SD to give this guy time at 2B in AAA, where he is hitting .455 with 4 HR over the last 10 games.  34th round draft pick who played for Tony Gwynn at SD St., so the fans should love him.

John Thomas Roll2

C'mon, Alex, please put an end to this blatant team-shaming here on your web site. At least make Howard blur out some of the less fortunate owners who are in the fantasy ghetto.

Somebody is having a good week :-)

Tyler White Houston Astros

Kyle Tucker is struggling at AAA, but Yordan Alvarez is hitting 318/455/841 with 7 HR in 44 AB.

brilliantly put!  Think of the New York teams' luck with buying out arbitration years.

Jacob deGrom New York Mets

So the "strep throat" has traveled to his elbow and he is getting an MRI. Is the Strep Elbow yet another example of the ineptitude and mendacity of the Mets' medical team?

I am twisted up like a pretzel from kicking myself for not bidding enough on him during our first FAAB run.

Who is this guy? He puts a serious charge in the ball.
