"That was a lot of fun," Beaty said. "We started pretty early today. Really good at-bats, getting people on base, and getting them over. It was a lot of fun."Milwaukee Brewers Face Masks

Andrew McCutchen led off the bottom of the first with a 445-foot blast onto Ashburn Alley past left-center field. On an 81-degree night with no wind, the Phillies looked poised to break out offensively against Mets lefty David Peterson, whom they had scored 12 runs against in 12 innings entering the night. McCutchen homered, Hoskins walked and Harper laced a single, but the inning ended on a hard-hit double-play ball by Bohm.Toronto Blue Jays Face Masks
The 2020 season slowed Bradley’s potential rise to becoming an everyday player in Cleveland. This came after a promising 2019 season in Triple-A that saw him hit 37 home runs and post a .912 OPS.
That’s bearing out in the numbers. The combined number of hit batters, wild pitches and passed balls — which we’ll call out-of-control pitches — is at an all-time high in the modern game. It’s almost a given you’ll see one each time you tune in — MLB was averaging 0.962 per game entering Wednesday. That’s up 36.3 percent up since 2011, and 13.4 percent from 2019, even. (Left uncounted are the injury-to-insult style swinging strikes that hit the bamboozled batter — a smaller genre that, anecdotally, also seems to pop up more than ever.)Atlanta Braves Face Masks
Update: The Cards' top pitching prospect was quite impressive this spring. He will begin at Class AA Springfield.
But you know what, none of that really matters. Glasnow pitched well in Monday night’s start vs. the anonymous Angels that not even George Knox, Roger Bomman or J.P. would watch. Glasnow improved to 4-1 on the year, as he threw six innings of four-hit ball, allowing three earned runs, walking four and striking out eight. He even struck out Upton once to get the Rays back to .500.Seattle Mariners Face Masks
