Surging Marlins unload on Brewers
The Marlins came into Tuesday night’s game against the Brewers in Milwaukee with MLB’s worst offense. They ranked last among all 30 teams in runs, runs per game, OPS, home runs, total bases, RBI, and slugging percentage. Could we go on? We could go on.
In this one, though, some combination of Miller Park, Chase Anderson, the Milwaukee Bullpen, the Milwaukee defense, and the awakening Marlins offense allowed Miami to put 16 runs on the board. Coming in, the 2019 Marlins hadn’t scored more than nine runs in game. On Tuesday, they put beat that figure in fifth inning alone, when they scored 11. That’s a franchise record for runs scored in a single inning. Speaking of which …
Bochy wins 1,000th with Giants
The Giants topped the Mets in extras, which gave them their 25th win of the season. Longtime San Fran manager Bruce Bochy came into the night with 999 wins in his 12-plus seasons in the Giants dugout High-level calculus will tell you that he needed just one more win to reach 1,000 for this Giants career. He got it:
For his career, Bochy 1,951 wins, so he might get to 2,000 this season. He’s actually 27 games below .500 for his managerial career, but his three World Series wins and four pennants (one with the Padres) mean he’s almost certainly headed for the Hall of Fame.
Stat of the day: Alonso becomes second Mets rookie to reach 20 HR
With a blast off Giants’ Madison Bumgarner, Mets rookie outfielder Pete Alonso pushed his home run total to 20 on the season. Alonso ranks third in MLB with his 20 homers, behind Brewers’ Christian Yelich (22) and Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger (20).
Alonso, 24, is just the second Mets rookie to reach 20 home runs in a season. The other was Darryl Strawberry, who holds the franchise rookie record with 26 HR.
Getting to 20 that soon also puts Alonso in elite company among rookies:
Alonso is now batting .260/.340/.618 for the year.
Choo hits milestone homer
Here’s Shin-Soo Choo of the surprisingly relevant Rangers hitting his 200th career home run:
At the same time, he also made a bit of history:
For those wondering, Hideki Matsui got to 175 MLB home runs, and Ichiro retired with 117 home runs in MLB. That’s also Choo’s 11 home run of the season. The 36-year-old is now batting .303/.388/.558 for the year. That’s coming off an All-Star season in 2018. In related matters, Choo is at 34.1 WAR for his MLB career. He’s not in any serious Hall of Fame discussion, of course, but that’s a darn nice career.
