Brewers Take Down Nationals In Slugfest, Rays Plate One But Win In Extras, Thomas Takes Huge Lead Into Sunday At BMW

Grace Higgins | August 18th, 2019

It’s not everyday that you see tons of runs scored in a Major League Baseball game. OK, maybe it does happen everyday. But it’s usually not anything like the kind of game that took place, on national television mind you, on Saturday between the Washington Nationals and the Milwaukee Brewers. It might well have started slowly, but in the end it didn’t disappoint a bit. In total, 29 runs were scored in a hectic 14-inning contest that ultimately saw the visiting Brewers hang on and win 15-14 for what could prove to be a crucial win. In the melee, your top performers, of course, included Christian Yelich. Yelich had two home runs and four RBIs in the win, going 5-6 and raising his batting average to a ridiculous .333 in the process. All in all, the Brewers ended up hitting a team-record seven home runs in the victory. On the Nationals side, Adam Eaton and Victor Robles impressed. Eaton drove in three runs via a home run, while Robles collected three hits and three RBIs, two of which prolonged the game in the ninth and 13th frames. Washington is now 5.5 back of the Braves in the NL East, while the Brewers are just one off the pace of Chicago and St. Louis in the NL Central.

It was not the display of two offensive juggernauts like in the Nationals and Brewers game, but the Tampa Bay Rays and Detroit Tigers still managed to play out an extremely memorable 13-inning game in Tampa on Saturday. The game’s first- and only- run would have to wait until the bottom of the 13th when Mike Brosseau came up clutch with an RBI single that drove in Eric Sogard. That was the first run they had plated since Wednesday, ending a run of 29 innings without one, somehow. The incredible part of it, though, was the pitching performance that the Rays put on. In all of those innings, their pitchers combined to strike out 24 men while walking precisely none of them. That is a club record for the six pitchers that participated, showing exactly why Tampa are such a big threat should they indeed make their way to the playoffs. In the modern game, it’s hard to see such a highly effective bullpen, and that’s what they have, by the looks of it.

After three rounds of this year’s BMW Championship, it looks like the tournament is Justin Thomas’ to lose. The American golfer besieged a course with no teeth on Saturday by shooting an -11 61 to hand him a six shot edge over Tony Finau and Patrick Cantlay ahead of Sunday’s final round. He began with five straight birdies and even made a nice eagle 2 on the 16th hole. He would end up breaking the course record by two shots with the showing. Tiger Woods, meanwhile, had a decent day, shooting a 67 and putting himself in with a chance to make the top 11. It’ll take another fine day and some luck, but he does have a chance at Medinah to book his place in the season finale in Atlanta.
