Eric Thames bashes his way into Brewers' record book

Frederick Owens | 29 April, 2017, 20:56

Milwaukee Brewers' Eric Thames scores past Cincinnati Reds catcher Stuart Turner during the fourth inning of a baseball game Monday, April 24, 2017, in Milwaukee.

Perez's three-run homer capped that inning. Garza got off to a late start this season because of a groin issue. He also hit 37 home runs and brought in 121 runs.

Davis was lifted after Arcia's two-run homer and Jonathan Villar's base hit in the third. "He wasn't on the slider, and then 3-2, he was on the slider". Note of some interest: The Reds set an all-time record for home runs allowed last season.

The Rockies' relievers came through once again after starter Tyler Anderson wore down. Schebler doubled in a run in the ninth. Teams that so far have had very little information to go on when it comes to how to pitch to him will presumably have a much fuller idea the next time.

The Rockies' bullpen is now 6-0 with a 2.62 ERA, which is tops in the NL.

Cubs 1, Pirates 0: Kyle Hendricks rediscovered his 2016 form, limiting Pittsburgh to four hits over six innings to outduel Gerrit Cole. "It's just a matter of carrying that over into the game". His final line wasn't pretty: 11 hits, eight runs (seven earned) and a walk to go along with a pair of strikeouts.

Naturally, like any other time a player who's mainly struggled in Major League Baseball turns things around and becomes an offensive juggernaut seemingly overnight, whispers about performance-enhancing drug use that are malicious in tone surface whether they are founded, or nothing more than speculation.

Franco also hit a grand slam in a 5-4 loss to the Mets on April 12.

Cardinals move up 9 spots to draft DB Budda Baker

David Peralta homered and singled twice for the Diamondbacks, whose 9-2 start at home ties the best in club history.

Thames singled, walked and scored twice.

Wi.Peralta pitched to 3 batters in the 6th. In the seventh, Archer hit Seth Smith with a pitch, and Jones followed with a drive deep into the left-field seats. "It is really the on-base stuff". He has played six games against them and homered in all six games. He fouled three different pitches off his left foot during his first-inning at-bat and continued to play until the injury stiffened enough to prevent him from running.

All of which is to say: let's be careful when it comes to Eric Thames.

The Rangers (9-11), the AL West champion the past two seasons, missed a chance to reach.500 for the first time this year.

REDS TEAM TRENDS: The Reds have dropped six of their last seven games overall and are just 1-5 in their last six divisional games. Brewers fans know that Thames is all about RBI's so it is no surprise that his first recorded hit scored a run. Anderson is 2-0 with a 2.92 ERA in two career starts against Atlanta. With two runners on, Odubel Herrera singled to load the bases.

After the game, Thames was subjected to a drug test administered by Major League Baseball as part of its anti-doping program. His ERA rose from a big league-best 0.44 to 1.40.

Astin gave the Reds 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief. He walked four and struck out one.
