There was no other player the Angels would have rather had up to bat in that situation. Down, 2-1, in the fifth inning, the Angels had loaded the bases with one out against D-backs right-hander Matt Koch, bringing Mike Trout to the plate. Arizona pitching coach Mike Butcher jogged out to the mound to briefly strategize with Koch, but his counsel proved of little use against Trout, who promptly lined a first-pitch fastball to center field for a two-run, go-ahead single that helped lift the Angels to a 5-4 win over the D-backs on Tuesday night at Angel Stadium.
Albert Almora Jr. ripped a walk-off single to right field in the 10th inning to give the Cubs a split in a day-night doubleheader vs. the Dodgers. Kris Bryant led off the 10th with a triple into the right-field corner off Brock Stewart, and the Dodgers intentionally walked Javier Baez to set up the game-winner from Almora.
The Cardinals leaned on a timely rally and an abundance of homers for a back-and-forth victory over the Phillies. Matt Carpenter led the way with 3 RBIs on a double and a ninth-inning homer -- his third in as many games. Tommy Pham and Kolten Wong both added solo shots. The Phillies' bats were equally lively. Odubel Herrera and Carlos Santana both collected their 11th homer of the season. Phillies third baseman J.P. Crawford left the game with a fractured left hand after being hit by a pitch. Philadelphia starter Vince Velasquez tossed 6 1/3 strong innings, racking up 8 K's, but the bullpen couldn't slam the door on the Cards.
This week, Major League Baseball offers fans another unique viewing experience with the continuation of its digital-only broadcasts. Wednesday's Braves-Blue Jays matchup will stream live in the United States exclusively on Facebook. The finale to the two-game Interleague series at Rogers Centre is one of 25 streaming broadcasts scheduled for 2018 as part of MLB's partnership with Facebook.
Each day in the MLB standings, you see a snapshot of a moment in time that vanishes almost immediately. When a game is played, it's not a data point of just one game; you have to keep in mind the game's context. That's why, when I look at the standings, I use a little tool called Simple Ratings System (SRS).
