Blues Bounce Back, Goodell Says Four Too Much, Rutschman Goes First In MLB Draft, Buehler Dominant On The Mound

Grace Higgins | June 4th, 2019

The St. Louis Blues’ 7-2 loss in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals forced them to make changes to their lineup for Game 4 on Monday night against the Boston Bruins. And those changes worked a charm for them, leading them to a 4-2 win that was led by Ryan O’Reilly’s two goal. The first of them came just 43 seconds into the game, and the second proved to be the winner, coming in the third period with less than ten minutes to go. Vladimir Tarasenko kept up his ridiculously hot goal scoring form as well, while Alex Pietrangelo had two assists. The visiting Bruins got equalizing goals from Charlie Coyle and Brando Carlo, which came shorthanded, but in the end they fell and allowed the series to be evened up at two games apiece.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell caused quite the stir on Monday, further reiterating that he believes that four preseason games is far too much for the league. This idea has long been mooted by owners, as they think it would be better to go with an 18-game regular season with only a couple of preseason games beforehand. Players, however, are against this, as it’s seen as more chance of an injury to occur. Both sides make a lot of sense with their arguments, so it will be interesting to see if there is some sort of compromise brokered when the new collective bargaining agreement is forged- or if they will avoid the issue entirely and keep it as is.

The Baltimore Orioles selected first in Monday’s MLB Draft, and with the first pick, they went with Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman. The 21 year-old comes off a season that saw him hit .411 and slam 17 home runs, all while throwing out nearly half of all runners that dared to try and steal on him. That came a season after helping lead the Beavers to the National Title. He is the seventh catcher all-time to be taken with the #1 overall pick and the first to go in the spot since 2001 when Joe Mauer was chosen by the Twins. He turned out OK, wouldn’t you say?

On the field itself, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler was just about unhittable on Monday night, allowing just two measly hits in eight innings of work as his team went on to a 3-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Opposition pitcher Robbie Ray was very good as well, going seven innings and giving up all three runs. Combined, they had 20 strikeouts and they each gave up a homer. Unfortunately for Ray, his was a three-run shot by Corey Seager that ended up winning the game for the visiting Dodgers. A Christian Walker home run in the following inning, the fifth, proved to be too little too late, with Kenley Jensen shutting the door and recording the save. LA remains 9.5 clear of the pack in the NL West as a result of the victory.
