Now that the MLB regular season is officially over, the debate of who should be the American League MVP can finally be put to rest. Sorry Yankees fans, but it’s still not D.J. LeMahieu.
The home run is the most exciting play in baseball. Whether it’s leading off a game or walking one off, there’s nothing quite like watching a man and a 34+ oz bat drive a little, leather ball 400 feet in a split second. But in 2019, things are getting a bit ridiculous when it comes to the long ball.
The Boston Red Sox ownership terminated their partnership with former president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski after midnight Sunday night. The more I read into their situation and the path of the franchise; it did not seem like the worst idea to me. In fact, it may have been the right move in the end.
ECU continued its rampant pace as it won all five of its game this week, with an in-conference sweep of UConn this weekend. ECU starter Jake Agnos set new season-highs Thursday with 8.2 innings of one run ball and 14 strikeouts. There was a double header Saturday that started with a seven-inning game, which ECU took 5-2. In game one, the Pirates threw four different pitchers, with none going more than 2 innings. Spencer Brickhouse led ECU to the sweep-clinching win in game two of the double-header. He drove in five of the nine runs they scored and hit two bombs that put the game out of reach of the UConn comeback. A four-run eighth inning propelled the Pirates past UNCW Tuesday. Another big eighth inning against Old Dominion helped ECU stave off a late comeback Wednesday.
