MLB Games Recap : Guerra brilliant and Cubs back on track

MLB Games Recap

Monday took a weird turn for the Brewers and the best team in baseball needed to get back on the right direction. FanPicks (click to play) has your MLB Games Recap.

Guerra brilliant versus the Nats

Brew Crew’s Junior Guerra won against Nats Max Scherzer. That’s right! He won denying any run to score in a 1-0 victory. This gives Milwaukee his first victory in four games. Martin Maldonado scored the unique run of the meeting, with his third home run of the season. Guerra (6-1) gave up two hits in seven and one-third innings of work. He struck out seven  and conceded two walks. The 31 years-old rookie also allowed no runs in the game prior to Washington. He is now victorious in his last three starts. Scherzer (9-6) threw 114  pitches in six innings. He allowed one run and four hits and three walks. The ace also struck out seven hitters.

The highlight (or blunder) of this game came in the first when, after two outs, Ryan Braun presents himself to the plate and hits a single. Nationals manager Dusty Baker immediately came out of the dugout to speak with empire Cory Blaser. After a small consultation between all of the empires, the decision was to call a third out on Jonathan Lucroy. Turns out that within the starting lineup sheets given to the empires and Dusty Baker, Lucroy was the intended hitter, followed by Braun. Only the press gallery had received the sheet with Braun hitting in third spot, his regular spot in the lineup. Braun came back to hit in the second but failed to reached first base this time.

Chicago back on track

Kris Bryant knocked his 24th long ball of his campaign in a 10-4 Chicago Cubs win over the Cincinnati Reds. This win puts an end to the four game Chicago skid. Bryant’s homer scored two points on the board. However, the National League home run leader had to leave three innings later because he got hurt to his left leg. Among the other Cubs home run hitters, both Willson Contreras and Addison Russell blasted one out of the park. Contreras already collected five homers since making the big league back on June 17th. Kyle Hendricks (7-6) spaced out one run and four hits in five innings and one-third of work for Chicago.
