Two Beers: Stephen Piscotty, St. Louis Cardinals: Piscotty stepped to the plate with the Cardinals trailing 5 to 2 in the bottom of the eighth and blasted a three run homer which capped an epic four run inning. The Cards went on to win the game when…
One Beer: Aledmys Diaz, St. Louis Cardinals: Diaz had a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth, plating Tommy Pham and sending the Cardinal faithful home happy. The Cards have won seven of their last ten and now trail the Cubs by 6.5 in the NL Central.
One Beer: Francisco Liriano, Pittsburgh Pirates: FINALLY! Liriano looked like a front-line starter last night against the Brewers in their 5 to 3 win in PNC Park. Liriano went 6.1 in the winning effort, striking out 13 Brewers along the way without any walks. The Pirates could really use Liriano down the stretch, as they sit just three games back of the second wild card spot.
One Beer: Dustrin Pedroia, Boston Red Sox: Pedroia was 5 for 5 last night with three runs scored in Boston’s 13 to 2 win over Minnesota. Pedroia’s average is now .304 on the year and the team stands alone in first place in the AL East.
One Beer: Mark Reynolds, Colorado Rockies: With the Rockies leading 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh, Mark Reynolds unloaded on delivery from Braves reliever Hunter Cervenka. The ball traveled an estimated 484 feet and is the second longest home run of the year. The Rockies took the game from the Braves, 7 to 3. The ten year pro is also hitting a modest .277, which is 40 points over his career average.
