MINNEAPOLIS. - Jose Berrios pitched 5 2/3 shutout innings and Alejandro Kirk had a two-run single to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to a 3-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins in the rubber match of their three-game series on Sunday afternoon in Minneapolis.
May 28 - Anthony Santander homered and later drove in the tie-breaking run with a ninth-inning single as the visiting Baltimore Orioles rallied from a pair of six-run deficits to stun the Boston Red Sox 12-8 on Friday night in the opener of a five-game series.
SAN DIEGO -- The Dodgers and Padres have produced some of the most memorable games of the 2021 season. Wednesday night’s 5-3 Dodgers win at Petco Park topped them all, jam-packing every situation into a 16-inning, five-hour rollercoaster.
TORONTO. - At the age of 45, I'm old by today's standards. When I graduated high school in 1993, most of the world hadn't heard of the internet and the idea of Sony and Microsoft making game systems was a laughable idea. This was an era when baseball was THE national sport. Major League Baseball, my favorite sport as a child, averaged over 30 million viewers in its 1991 World Series between the Braves & Twins, including an obscene 50 million viewers for game 7. It has seen a steady drop over 3 decades to under 12 million viewers per game each of the last two years. Many reasons factor into this alarming statistic including increased strikeouts and pace of play, but I feel it all comes down to what a changing audience wants.
TORONTO. - Para los fanáticos del beisbol y especialmente de los Azulejos de Toronto (yo los llamo “Los Azulejos de Canadá”, porque son el único equipo de Grandes Ligas en este país), han sido uno de los tres o cuatro equipos que ha hecho más “ruido” (los otros son los Padres, Mets y Atlanta) en el mercado de fichajes de la MLB, pero sin llegar a concretar ningún fichaje de renombre, lo cual enardeció a los fanáticos y empezaron a llover las críticas y con toda la razón.
