Well with my favorite time of the year finally in the books, it’s time to look back on the best 2 days of the year… Opening Day.
Ian Happ of the Chicago Cubs led the league off with a home run on the first pitch of opening day against the Marlins with the juiced-ball era fully in swing. *wink wink*
Some dude named Matt Davidson hit 3 home runs against my hometown Royals. (I’m crying inside, Screw you Matt Davidson.)
Giancarlo Stanton blasted a home run in his Yankees debut at home, cause who the hell saw that coming?
Braves beat the Phillies on a Nick Markakis 3 run walk-off in a battle of the rebuilds
AND ON THE 2ND DAY OF OPENING DAY:
The Pirates beat the Tigers in a 13-10 slug-fest in the 13th inning.
Scherzer goes for 6 innings and 10K’s as the Nationals shut-out the Reds
In a game where both teams used a combined 14 pitchers, the Marlins beat the Cubs in 17 innings.
Nick Ahmed goes 3 for 4 with 5 RBI’s to lift the D-Backs over the Rockies 9 to 8.
WHAT TO EXPECT SUNDAY:
White Sox sweep the Royals ( as i curl up with a bottle of Jameson and remember 2015)
Ohtani goes for 7 innnings and 6 K’s as the Angles beat the A’s 5-2
Yankees beat the Blue Jays, (they shall be known as the “BJ’s” from this day forward) as Judge and Stanton both hit Dongs.
Pirates destroy agaisnt an apparently undecided Tigers rotation according to ESPN (Its the 3rd day of the season, get your shot together ESPN)
And Trevor Baurer returns to form and shuts-out the Mariners in a blow-out..
