And then Moustakas hits one to the moon, MIL up 6-3 now.
And I know it’s a hitters park and the ball is juiced but 1.5 HR/9All 15 of Verlander's Ks last night were swinging, pretty crazy.
Also if there is any question who is the front-runner to start the ASG and to win the Cy Young in the AL, this should settle it:
"Justin Verlander is on pace to become the 1st qualified pitcher in the modern era (since 1900) to allow fewer than 7 baserunners per 9 IP.
Justin Verlander (6.9 in 2019)
Walter Johnson (7.2 in 1913)
Pedro Martinez (7.2 in 2000)
Addie Joss (7.3 in 1908)"
That catch was insane. Don't look now, the Giants have won four in a row. They probably shouldn't just give MadBum away (only b/c they are already stuck with awful contracts for Cueto, JS, Longoria, and MM).Mike Yastrzemski ends a Giants win by making a diving catch that his grandpa would have been proud of.
Highest scoring 4 game series in MLB history, Mike Axisa says the two teams were .379/.429/.645 for the series combined. That is ridiculous.This is insane even for Coors Field... last 3 SD @ COL scores: 16-12, 14-8, 13-13 (ongoing)
Thursday’s 9-6 was the most normal game of the series!!
And in the end, here is what that series produced:A real Coors field game tonight, the Rockies were beating the Padres 11-5 going into the 9th but 6 in the 9th and now 5 in the 12th have SD up 16-11. Hunter Renfroe had a HR in both of those innings as well as one earlier in the game, but somehow he only knocked in 5 of their 16 runs. But COL should not give up hope yet, they just need a last minute TD drive to steal this.
