M's bats put on ice in Atlanta heat, Shutout 1-0

Atlanta - Julio Teheran was electric for Atlanta, and an RBI single from the newest Brave Andre Ethier was all they needed to top the Mariners in this one. The Mariners wasted what may have been the best start of Taijuan Walker's young career, as he went 6.2 innings and struck out nine hitters, but he was out matched by Teheran, who kept Mariners hitters off balance all day, and did not allow an extra base hit in the game. The Mariners now get a day off before a four game series in Tampa Bay. It will be James Paxton (3-3, 3.56 ERA) taking on Alex Cobb (7-4, 3.99 ERA) in the opener.

Romero's pinch-hit blast powers Mariners to win

Atlanta - The Mariners had another pitching battle on their hands, once again locked up at 1-1 late after the Braves tied it in the 7th inning on a Sac Fly, but rookie Stefen Romero followed up his two hit performance Sunday with some heroics to lead off the 8th. He battled until he got a hanging pitch from Luis Avilan that he promptly belted into the left center field seats at Turner Field, and the Mariners won their 2nd straight to kick off this southeastern swing. Chris Young was excellent for the Mariners going seven strong giving up just the one run on the Sac Fly. Fernando Rodney continued his dominance coming in for a 1-2-3 9th inning with two strikeouts in the process. The Mariners look for the quick two game sweep tomorrow when they send Taijuan Walker (4-5, 4.25 ERA) to the mound to face Julio Teheran (5-4, 3.15 ERA).

BOSTON, MA - The All Star break is here and not a moment too soon for the ailing Red Sox offense. They have hit so poorly it's a wonder they win any games, but their pitching has been great, so great that the AL East is still within their grasp. It's going to be a tough run to the end of the season with five teams within 5 games of the division lead, everyone but the Yankees have a shot.

MLB Standings - Updated: Jul 16, 2015
Tampa Bay5442-
NY Yankees415613.5

The AL East has lost a little shine, losing the "hardest division" crown to the NL West for the moment. Fans can always fall back on the "they are so good they hurt eachother's records" argument, but it's hard to deny the Dodgers and Diamondbacks. LA (61-34) and Arizona (59-37) hold the best records in baseball, and if 2014 is any indication it won't change between now and the end of the season.

Mid-Season MiLB Moves

Not too many surprises down on the farm, most of the big moves have been in the works for some time. The vast majority of the moves involved bringing guys from AA Portland to AAA Pawtucket in anticipation of a shot at making the majors in 2016.

RHP Leonys Bravo : Promoted to AAA after breezing through a half-season in Portland. 12-3, 2.15ERA and 194K in 150.2IP. Time to see if he will be ready for 2016 or if 2017/18 is more likely.

1B Isaac Koufax : Nobody blocking him in Pawtucket, so Boston felt they might as well give him a shot. Glove can play at any level, but his .299BA with 18HR has really surprised evaluators.

OF Rico Berroa : Much like Koufax, nobody blocking him and can play defense in the majors right now. .291BA and 17SB were eye openers and helped him earn a promotion to AAA.

RHP Roddy Gibson : Looked better than expected through Rookie and Class A-Advanced, moves into a AA Portland rotation that was decimated by promotions to start 2015 and instantly becomes their ace. Really exciting young talent that has coaches buzzing.

CHICAGO, IL - The Red Sox headed back to the AL Central this week for a showdown with the White Sox, and they would need to keep winning if they wanted to keep things close in the East. Archer, coming off three straight games where he has struck out 14 or more would have to continue pitching well. Torii Hunter would get the nod in LF today with Mookie Betts needing a day off.

Outside of Archer, this game was pretty boring while highlighting some of Boston's issues with scoring runs. Boston opened the scoring in the 1st thanks to a throwing error that put Jackie Bradley Jr. on 2nd, and then a Xander Bogaerts single drove him in. Blake Swihart would make it 2-0 in the 2nd with an RBI double that would easily score Hunter from 3rd.

Bradley Jr. is quietly having a very good season.

Archer cruised through the White Sox hitters, walking a few but striking out most of them. Bogaerts made it 3-0 in the 5th with a solo-HR and Archer took a seat after 7IP. Archer finished the day with a single hit, 4BB, and 16K which puts him on a record shattering pace. Bradley Jr. added a solo-HR of his own in the 9th and Boston closed out the game 4-0 on another Archer gem. Bogaerts was the only Boston player that did much, going 3/5 with a HR, 2RBI, and 2SB. The Red Sox hammered out 12 hits but only managed 4 runs.

Walk-off error leads to Mariners win

Seattle - It was a strange way to end such a well played game, but in the 10th inning it was a defensive blunder right after a defensive gem that gave the Mariners a salvage of the three game series. After a two out double by Stefen Romero, Michael Saunders came up and hit a rope that looked for all the world it would get past Ian Kinsler for the game winning RBI. Kinsler dived to his left and made an outstanding play on the ball, only to look in horror split seconds later as his throw to first sailed into the dugout, awarding Romero, who was rounding third, the advance home to clinch the victory. The Mariners will look to carry this momentum with them across the country as they head to Atlanta to take on Ervin Santana (7-0, 2.96 ERA) and the Braves, Chris Young (2-5, 3.99 ERA) will get the start in the opener.

Monster 6th Inning Leads Brewers to Victory

By Andrew Kovalchuk, MLB.com Journalist, April 25, 2014

MILWAUKEE- The first I-94 series of the new season did not disappoint, as the Cubs (9-12) and Brewers (12-10) squared off.

The Brewers took the lead in the very first inning after leadoff man Jean Segura homered, putting Travis Wood (3-0) in the hole early. On the other side of the ball, Brewers starter Marco Estrada (2-1) did not allow any runners on base until the third, when rookie 2B Javier Baez walked and stole second. A liner from C Welington Castillo would move Baez to 3rd, and when Emilio Bonifacio walked, it would become very promising indeed. However, Ryan Sweeney grounded into a tailor-made double play, and the Cubs came away with nothing. The Brewers would make them pay in the bottom of that very inning when they added another HR, this one a solo shot from Carlos Gomez.

The Cubs showed some signs of life when Anthony Rizzo doubled and Nate Schierholtz drove him around in the fourth. But the chance to tie the game, and the excitement around Baez's first major league hit, were dampened when Schierholtz was thrown out at home.

The next inning, Wood allowed a couple men on base, and was promptly pulled. But relief pitcher Carlos Villanueva didn't help matters, as he gave up four runs, capped off by a three-run HR from Mark Reynolds, making the game 6-1.

The Cubs would load the bases in the ninth in an attempt to make the game closer than it really was, but a groundout would end the game. To add insult to injury, loading the bases gave middling relief pitcher Michael Fiers the first save of his career and one that he really didn't earn.

Anthony Rizzo's 3-for-4 day with two extra-base hits was impressive, and he will hope to continue that production in the other two games of the series. Javier Baez's first hits also couldn't have come at a more impressive time, as he was 2-for-3, getting on base 3 times. Welington Castillo is finally looking to break out of his cold streak, and is doing just that with consecutive multiple-hit games. The Brewers didn't have any notable performers, but they will hope for better from Ryan Braun, who could not manage a hit today.

Games 2 and 3 follow tomorrow and Sunday.

Hey, guys, I'll be playing a Franchise in MLB the show 14 as the Seattle Mariners. This is just an intro, as I will not be starting until Mizzou's final roster comes out (should be this weekend, or even early next week at the latest) so expect the first post then. I'll post my 25-man roster/lineups/rotation/bullpen and a season out look for the 2014 season. I'm mainly posting this for myself but I still hope a lot of you are seeing this.

*Daniel Bryan celebrated his WWE championship win to kick off Raw. Ally Dolph Ziggler congratulates him but notes he should be next in line after defeating the higher power of Triple H at Wrestlemania. Predictably, the Game interrupts. He announces the fat has been trimmed off the Authority, including Andre the Giant, Batista, and Ted DiBiase.

The theme played and out came Randy Orton, Kane, and Alberto Del Rio. This is the new Evolution, who intend to return Raw's power back to the Authority. Wade Barrett and Sheamus are also hired temporarily in the vein of the Acolytes and another will be added. Kane is Director of Operations and mostly manager. Hunter blames the Shield for dropping the ball and not completing their objective. He insults them for not being able to take out our "diminutive" hero after months of hounding him.

*The COO says he's proud of the B+ player and his buddies for their rebellion's sudden success. But their popularity will dwindle and he will systematically destroy all of our false idols. In the end, it always goes back to the Game. He claims he runs this show, this business, and he has cut down every last of our favorites as they try to rise to the top. So sayeth the Game, he cannot be stopped in his quest for ultimate power and for Raw to be sculpted in his vision. He will pursue Daniel Bryan and his teammates to the bitter end, whether he needs help or not. Daniel Bryan is the next sacrificial lamb to be taken down for attempting to threaten the throne.

*Cody Rhodes defended his newly-acquired Intercontinental championship against Austin Aries and Kevin Steen in a three-way dance. It was a solid 15-minute match with both Aries and Steen flashing their impressive movesets. Tag team maneuvers and nearfalls scattered around and there were plenty of brainbusters. Cody ultimately retains at 14:37 with a Cross Rhodes to Steen while Double-A was laid out.

*The Shield had their first matches since the split. Roman Reigns, in his FCW attire, lost to a returning Rock via a Rock Bottom on the outside. Dean Ambrose was able to complete a hook-n-ladder and a Dirty Deeds on Stone Cold, but ultimately the Texas Rattlesnake stomped a mudhole in him. He finished the second Shield loss with an Osaka Street Stunner. Seth Rollins, on the other hand, comes out victorious in a non-title match against Razor Ramon. He takes a Razor's Edge but fires back with a standing Shiranui as the only winning former member of the Shield.

*In an NJPW exhibition, Hiroshi Tanahashi defeated TENSAI. Highlights included a super-long pin-reversal sequence and Tana sending the 360-lb man crashing with a dragon suplex. The "Once in a Century Talent" delivered a Styles Clash for the win, showcasing Japan's star players in the process.

*Dolph Ziggler was matched up with Randy Orton in a swap of Wrestlemania opponents. We saw an RKO, a super kick, and a punt attempt reversed into a second super kick. The second one busted open the "face of the WWE". At the 10:46 mark, Orton rolled up Ziggler for a sneaky win, perhaps stating he deserves a rematch against Bryan. Even with the loss, Dolph cemented his status as the next potential contender to the WWE champion with yet another great performance.

*It was apparent that this long and drawn-out brawl meant either Daniel Bryan or Triple H needed to weaken the other or target a particular body part. For HHH, he went directly at the legs, maybe signaling for a Figure Four going back to Naitch. Bryan in turn tried to wear down the Game's arms, useful in the case of a YES! Lock later on. One running knee was not gonna end it. Hunter powered ahead with a spinebuster and a lifting Pedigree that bloodied the champion. At the conclusion, DBry hit a rolling elbow and a second Busaiku knee to retain. For his efforts, Corporate Kane beat him down with a pipe.

Post WM-30!

So yes, in case you guys didn't know, I finished up my 4-day Wrestlemania XXX. Took awhile for me to get back into the game and complete the last few matches but the details are back on pg.77 or something. Main-event wasn't finished because my write-up of it did not go through. -____-
At the end of Wrestlemania 30, two new champions were christened. Allies took down rivals decisively. They will now split up their team as they take on leadership of Raw and Smackdown. Who knows what obstacles will stand in front of them next? We're on the road to Extreme Rules.

Remind you of anybody?

Tigers get to Felix, blow past Mariners 7-1

Seattle - The red hot Felix Hernandez even wasn't enough to stop the buzzsaw that is the Detroit Tigers right now. Detroit notched their eighth win in a row Saturday night by pounding the King and his subject to the tune of a 7-1 margin. Victor Martinez did the most damage for the Tigers with a two run double in the fourth, followed up with a solo shot the next inning that effectively was the knockout blow for the M's. Who are on the wrong end of a streak themselves losing four in a row, and falling back in the division once again. Now the Mariners have the unenviable task of trying to avoid a sweep tomorrow against one Justin Verlander (5-4, 4.08 ERA), as they send Hisashi Iwakuma (3-5, 3.93 ERA) to the mound to face him.

KANSAS CITY, MO - The Red Sox hit the road for a long trip through the AL Central, and their first stop was a date with James Shields. Chris Archer has been as hot as any pitcher could be after his last two starts, but with Boston's hitting almost non-existent he might need to be even better.

Archer and Shields went at it right away, with Shields using his off speed arsenal to keep Boston's hitters grounding out and popping up. Archer, as usual, picked at the corners and racked up strikeout after strikeout along with a walk or two mixed in. Finally in the 6th inning someone broke the deadlock, Eric Hosmer waited patiently until Archer missed on a fastball high and tight that ended up right over the plate and finished in the outfield grass.

Shields was very sharp today.

Shields left after 6.2IP having shut out the Red Sox, and Archer left after collecting 14K in 7IP and allowing only the single run. The pens duked it out, with Boston continuing to struggle, and then Greg Holland came in to finish things off. In the end Boston outhit the Royals, but they just couldn't string anything together.
