Six, six glorious days of baseball have passed us by. What did you miss today with tedious things like work and chores? Let’s look at what was MLB day 6.

  • KANSAS CITY 1 DETROIT 0

Sometimes the MLB.com headline is an instant classic:

  • YANKEES 11 RAYS 4

Mr. Gregorious humbly omits the fact that he provided 2 homers and collected 8 RBI in the game. His teammate Giancarlo Stanton collected five (5!) strikeouts.

  • SEATTLE 6 SAN FRANCISCO 4

  • BOSTON 4 MIAMI 2

Marlins starting pitcher Jose Urena (7 IP 4 H 1 R 1 BB 7K) out-pitched Red Sox Chris Sale (5 IP 5 H 1 R 0 BB 6 K) . That ladies and gentleman is why you love baseball because you never know what’s going to happen.

  • TORONTO 14 WHITE SOX 5

In a game that featured 5 home runs, including the White Sox Avisail Garcia hitting a league longest (this year) 481 foot bomb, the Blue Jays 7-run bottom of the 8th did not include a homer.

  • METS 2 PHILADELPHIA 0

Why the movie guide to review a Mets game? The “thumbs down” now “thumbs up” phenomenon that is Todd Frazier (who collected the game winning RBI) was the old way to judge movies. “The Dark Knight” Matt Harvey trying to write a dramatic third installment in his Mets career where he returns to lost glory is currently rated “Certified Fresh”.

  • ATLANTA 13 WASHINGTON 6

  • MILWAUKEE 5 ST. LOUIS 4

History was made in this game as it was the first time in league history a game started with back-to-homers and ended with back-to-back homers. The Cardinals Dexter Fowler and Tommy Pham started the party, the Brewers Christian Yelich and Ryan Braun turned off the lights.

  • HOUSTON 10 BALTIMORE 6

  • ANGELS 13 CLEVELAND 2

Is there a silver lining for the Indians in this blowout loss? Yup.

  • ARIZONA 6 DODGERS 1

This what happened immediately after the Dodgers pulled starter Clayton Kershaw.

  • SAN DIEGO 8 COLORADO 4

For those interested in learning more about him (as I was), here’s the best article I found on him.

  • TEXAS 4 OAKLAND 1
