MLB Opening Day Takeaways: Dodgers Falters vs. Rockies, Angels Will Storm Late Back and Giants Lost in the 10th

The 2021 Major League Baseball season is underway as the opening day begins on Thursday afternoon. Unfortunately, with the rain of the Orioles-Red Sox game and the Covid-19 issues between Washington and Washington players canceling out the Primetime Mets-Nations tilt, it wasn’t a full-fledged slate of goodness.

The next issue left us without a game that started between 4:10 and 10:05 p.m. Bad schedule, right?

Here’s a look at the day’s scores.

The biggest solution to this is that the teams that played were only 1/162 this season. Which is 0.62 percent. Don’t freak out and overreact! (At least not more.) Let’s run a day of baseball action that really happened.

Rough start and silver lining for champs rule

This is a testament to how talented the Dodgers are. Clayton Kershaw didn’t have good stuff, he made two mistakes, he threw three wild pitches, committed a baseless gaff that turned the two-run home RBI into a single and out, he was 3 for 16 with the runners in the scoring position. And they left 14 men at the base. And yet, they still have a tying run at the top plate of the ninth and were able to win the game against the Rockies very well.

Credit the Rockies for the win, but beware of the rest of the baseball ball as the Dodgers played one of their worst potential games and still have a good shot to win.

Angels return late to storm

The White Sox struck in Anaheim first and then took a 3-1 lead below the fifth inning. Going to the bottom of the eighth they had a 3-2 lead, but there was a problem. The angels had their order ready to go to the top and that means trouble.

The Angels deserve credit for returning, of course, but the White Sox sure opened the door. The middle one David Fletcher Grounder became single when reliever Aaron Boomer decided to get his piece instead of letting go of his defense. Shohai Ohtani reached the pick of a fielder while Nick Madd was in second place to find the drill force.

He brought Mike Trout to the plate, and he delivered a game-tying single. After a strikeout and a walk, Albert Pujols, bouncing high and bounced the ball to the third base. Oh Hatani took such a big leap to the home plate line, the White Sox third baseman Yon Moncada had no choice but to go first with the play. The Angels took the lead and the new close Raisel Iglesias closed the door with ease in the ninth.

Giants melt down, come back, lose on the walk

The Giants had a 6-1 lead to go down in the eighth inning. It should be early. And while the Miners got some big hits, the Giants actually gave him this.

Walk and two singles followed the walk and strikeout. It was a 6-2 lead of the Giants that loaded the bases and one out. Jarlin Garcia then walked into the run (Taylor Trammell did a great plate appearance job, so, give him credit again) making it -3–3. Giants reliever Tyler Rogers came on and doubled Dylan Moore who scored two runs to make it 6-5. Then Rogers hit a batter. Then there was the weak ground of the first base that Brandon Belt threw (we could argue that he should have been caught, but he ended up in the outfield and that’s really important), allowing two runners to score.

It was six places for the Mariners. They trailed 6-1 at the bottom of the eighth and took the lead before the ninth.

Of course, they only took a one-run lead and giants pinch hitter Alex Dickerson decided his team would not go in peace. Running his house – muscular in the opposite field on the 0-2 count – tied things up.

Alas, it was Mariners Night after all. The Giants couldn’t find their free runner home in 10 and then the Mariners.

And, get this, all the Mariners were at the bottom of the 10th B hadx. There were three plates presented and all three were gone. The night ended on a walk off walk!

Good for Mariners, Rough for Giants.

Dominated by the Astros Booze

One of the biggest fans of Besab. They announced their presence with the authorities on Thursday, showering the Astros with booze.

The Astros took him from there. Zac Greenke allowed just three hits in six scoreless innings. Michael Brantley drowned and doubled in his 3 for 4 days. Alex Bragman also home and doubled while running two home runs. Jordan Alvarez ran three home runs.

Unlike the other two dramatically late ones, the game was never really in doubt.

Bieber Stars but no support

2020 A.L. Sai Young winner Shane Bieber joined the elite company by striking out 12 batsmen, but the Tigers took a 3-0 lead in ninth place without a run. Things got interesting with a two-run Roberto Perez shot, but Tigers reliever (close?) Gregory Soto inspired Cesar Hernandez to put out, with one runner and Jose Ramirez on the deck, the game ended.

D-Becks makes history; Pedres still wins

The 2021 Arizona Diamondbacks is now the answer to the Trivia question. They became the first team in baseball history with a four-homer innings. However, Pedres cannot be denied. They were later in the sixth and then out of the seventh with a good 7 and 8-7 lead to win. Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado got 10 hits together, giving them 10 hits. They won despite giving up four runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings.

Good signs for Jay

A trendy playoff pick, the Blue Jays went into the Bronx and beat the Yankees by Garrett Cole on the hill. Breakout offensive star in 2020 – Tiokar Hernandez, went 4 for 3 at home and Vladimir Guerrero looked great with a one line drive single and two walks. JS doesn’t have George Springer yet.

Hyun-Jin Ryu went 5/3 innings, allowing only two runs (both on Gary Sanchez Homer), but the real story on the pitching side was Blue Jess’s bullpen 4/3 scoreless innings when only two hits were allowed. .

The Yankees had a few late threats, but the Aaron judge struck twice, dispatching five people, to end those rallies.

Brewers storm back

The twins scored two runs at the top of the third inning and held the lead all the way until two outs at the bottom of the ninth. Some opacity, let the Brewers hang, as a hitter and a throwing error put Christian Yelich on a home run before putting two hooks on the base and then Travis Shaw, tying the game, doubled by two runs. The ninth game of three runs for the Brewers extended to the extras and the Brewers would push it forward.

Hello Phillies Bullpen?

The Phillies had the worst bullpen in recent memory last season. The kind of numbers they put in were the league’s notoriety (7.06 ERA, 1.79 WHIP).

On Thursday, the Phillies used four relievers – Archie Bradley, Jose Alvarado, Hector Neris and Connor Brogden – who scored just one hit in four runs in a stri / 3 scoreless innings. It’s not that they were facing a lineup full of pushovers, either, as this is the offense of high-octane brews.

A good outing from Jean Segura to Aaron Nola and a walk-in single will be the highlights here, but don’t fall asleep to that good bullpen performance.

A Florida duel

Kims and Marlins are the only offense in Miami with Austin Meadows solo homer together for just eight hits. Tyler Glassno (6 IP, 1H, 0ER, 0BB, 6K) and Sandy Alcantara (6IP, 2H, 0ER, 2BB, 7K) were brilliant. The game featured two batsmen from three of his most successful films – Marlins was frightened by first baseman Jesus Aguilar when he flew on a warning track with a game-bound home run in a few parks, but the Marlins were empty on the opening day.

The offense of cards is the initial unloading; Oh oh Eugenio

The Cardinals were bowled out for 11 in nine innings by just four innings in Cincinnati on Thursday. Sure, they only hit one in five scoreless innings after that, but who cares? 11 runs were high enough to win. New look Paul Goldsmith-Nolan Arenado Combo reached 6 for 10 with 2-3 in four places and two RBIs. How about rookie Dillon Carlson homer who scored three runs at first rate?

At the end of the Reds, I believe there is a silver lining giving the impression of seven runs even after the first six have been released. However, his potentially dubious decision to try on-star third baseman Eugenio Suarez at the startup resulted in two errors, which could end up costing him a game. In the first inning, with just one Cardinals score, Yadier Molina sent a regular grounder short, which could be an inning-ending double play, and Suarez booted it. Sure, he was in the hole, but Molina is the easiest in the bagb .l with his lack of speed.

Start shocking for the cubs

The Cubs are in fourth place to hit free agency many key players this season. It is possible that they will run one last playoff with the rest of their last core or be separated and sold out of the trading deadline. Thursday was a brutal start. Kyle Hendricks only survived three innings, issuing three walks for the first time exactly two years ago when the offense hit two in all games. The Cubs pitcher issued 11 walks and could have gotten worse this way, but the Pirates left a ridiculous 15 men at the base.

The offense of the Royals ’new look cannot be denied in the wild

The Royals allowed five runs at the top of the first innings. It’s very vague to see someone’s opponent score five runs before batting in the opener. No problem The Royals matched that five-spot with their own five at the bottom. They will then go 6-5 by two innings and 8-5 after the top of the third. But the Royals never stop beating. They scored many runs in four different innings – all “crooked numbers”. Kyle Isabel, Michael Taylor and Whit Maryfield all got three hits. Taylor, Maryfield and George Solar all went home. He was basically ruthless with the bat from start to finish.

The Royals had a record of 14 runs for the opening day. It was the longest nine-inning game in Royals’ early day history.

Oh, and get this (By Jeremy Frank on Twitter): This was today’s first opening day game in which the starting pitcher did not get five outs (1 2/3 innings). Royals starter Brad Keller went 1 1/3 innings while Rangers starter Kyle Gibson gave up after 1/3 innings. He faced eight batsmen, while allowing four hits and three walks with one out (strikeout).
