MLB Recap: 2nd No-Hitter, Rising Stars and Legends make History

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The 13th of September was a busy day in the MLB. There are young players who are turning heads, records being broken and history being made. There were a total of 17 games played today across the league, so we have a lot to unpack.

The Giants and Padres played a doubleheader today, because they had to make up a game from September 11th due to a false positive COVID-19 test. The Padres took game 1 behind Mike Clevinger getting his 3rd win of the year and pitching beautifully. He pitched all 7.0 innings and only allowed 2 hits and no runs. His team backed him up with 6 runs on 8 hits. In game 2 it was again all Padres, but this time the Giants got on the board. Wil Myers hit a home run and Machado and Profar both got RBI’s to sweep the doubleheader.

The Mariners and Diamondbacks met today, ending in a 7-3 Mariners win. Both teams have losing records and will most-likely not make the playoffs so these games should be used to develop and try out new lineups. The same goes for the Royals and Pirates game. The Royals have a 0.2% chance to make the playoffs while the Pirates have a 0.0% chance. The Royals dominated this worthless game 11-0.

Another doubleheader today was the Phillies playing the Marlins making up a game from August 5th. The Marlins swept the doubleheader and moved into second place in the NL East. Sixto Sanchez is a young pitcher whose stats so far are 5 games, 3-1 record, 1,69 ERA and 29 strikeouts in not only his first 5 games of the season but of his career. He also pitched all 7.0 innings today. He is off to a very impressive start and the same could be said for a third baseman across the diamond, Alec Bohm. Alec Bohm is the third baseman for the Phillies and he has a .330 average with 3 homers and 19 RBI’s in only 106 at-bats.

Some records were broken today which means history was made, and it was made by two different people. Albert Pujols hit his 660th homer today which ties Willie Mays for 5th n the All-Time home runs leader board. Another part of history that was made was Alec Mills throwing a no-hitter. It was the second of the year, the first was made on the South side of Chicago and this on the north side. History was made and both the Angels and Cubs got the win.

The Mets are running out of time to make it to the playoffs. There are only 14 games left on their schedule and after hammering the Blue Jays 18-1 on Friday they just dropped two straight. They have a tough schedule coming up with having to face the Phillies, Rays, Nationals and Braves, with 3 of those 4 teams having a better record. They would definitely need to win every series and possibly have to sweep both the Phillies and Braves which, with the start of September they have had is going to be very difficult. I am hoping to see sparks of last August and September in the next two weeks from this team.

Archie Bradley pitched for the Reds today and improved his record t 2-0 on the season, while his team picked up the win over the Cardinals. The Rangers beat the Athletics today with a score of 6-3. Frankie Montas got his 4th loss of the year while Lance Lynn picked up his 6th win.

The Dodgers just picked up the win against the Astros, winning by 7. It was the definition of a bullpen game for the Dodgers, they used a total of 8 pitchers, 7 of which only pitched 1 inning. Victor Gonzalez picked up the victory because he was the only pitcher to go more than one inning. Brusdar Graterol made his debut and only pitched the first inning ad struck out the side.

Russian GP – Race Preview

Russian Grand Prix can be a boring race so let's hope this race gets off to a great start. The only memory I have of the Russian GP is Valtteri Bottas letting Lewis Hamilton win. Last race at Mugello was an exciting race. With two red flags and one horrible crash. And Ferrari 1000 celebration wasn't the best either, but that might be because of the strict rules now during COVID 19. So I am happy...

Benny Leonard: Always A Champion

If you sat down with a group of boxing fans under the age of say, 50, and began to talk about whether Benny Leonard really is a Top-10 all-time fighter, you'd probably have a cacophony of voices barking at you about how great "Sugar" Ray really was.

IPL Talking Points

Efficient CSK get the job done again Before the tournament began, the Chennai Super Kings were touted to struggle by everybody analysing the game. But, on the opening day, post the opening powerplay overs, MS Dhoni proved once again why the IPL betting odds are always in their favor. From a position where they could have chased a tall score, CSK restricted MI to a chaseable total and then led by solid innings from...
