All 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)"

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. :)

Blackmon leads off with a HR against Yates, 16-12 now.

Edit: But Yates gets the next three guys and ends the fun, 16-12 final.

And I know it’s a hitters park and the ball is juiced but 1.5 HR/9

Yordan hits 4th HR in first 5 games. Dude looks like a young Papi. Astros are going to be impossible to stop once they get all their guys back.

Mike Yastrzemski ends a Giants win by making a diving catch that his grandpa would have been proud of.
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).

Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire was just ejected for arguing balls & strikes... at which point he went to the plate to give the umpire an earful, then turned and kicked dirt across the plate. Indians hitter Oscar Mercado was in the batter's box and line of fire, so Gardenhire apologized for getting him dirty and walked off the field.

Tigers reliever Victor Alcantara might want to drop his habit of staring at his feet prior to his delivery. It just led to a Leonys Martin straight steal of home.

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!!

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.

And in the end, here is what that series produced:

Thu: Col 9-6

Fri: SD 16-12 (F/12)

Sat: Col 14-8

Sun: SD 14-13 (check out that line score, below)

92 runs in a 4-game series. New MLB record.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
SD 3 2 3 0 0 0 2 0 4 14 15 1
COL 6 3 0 0 1 3 0 0 0 13 19 1

Just crazy at Coors. Also the 2nd most hits in a four game series ever. 130 hits were just 2 behind the record set in 1922. Amazingly the last 11 Rox went down in order yesterday. Winning run scored when a pinch hitting Padre pitcher drew a walk after Bud Black ordered 2 ibb'to load the bases.
