“It’s a very unexciting group of people.” President Trump weighing in on, no not the Orioles lineup, but the field of 20 Democrats debating in Miami. Split into two divisions and Bill de Blasio, as expected, ran last of 10 Wednesday. While Trump was unimpressed with the low-energy candidates he did say that Mike Pence, who needs to be tapped every now and then to make sure he’s still breathing, would once again be his running mate.
Getaway day for the Mets in Philly. Zack Wheeler is 6-5 after holding the Cubs to one run over seven innings. K-count soared to 108 on the year. Matched in the series finale against Aaron Nola, one of many underachieving Philly hurlers. Record stands at 6-2 but he owns a 5.55 ERA over his past four starts. Deserved a win last week. Took a tough loss instead, allowing one run while striking out 10 Marlins. Bullpens could make or break this one. 10 units on Philly.
Yankees down 5-0 thanks to James Paxton, came back and nipped the Jays 8-7. Tied at 7-all, Gleyber Torres provided the game-winning hit in the ninth inning. Wrong pitcher, right result. Up +52 munsons.
