Pirates 3, Red Sox 5

Phillies 4, Reds 3

Indians 8, Rangers 5

Mariners 0, Astros 3

Oakland Athletics 4, Los Angeles Angels 2

Tigers, White Sox game postponed due to rain.


Lets recap some games:

The Orioles season ended in 2016 when a Toronto Blue Jay had a walk-off home run in the AL Wild Card game. Last night The Orioles redeemed themselves and took the win when Mark Trumbo hit a historic walk-off home run in the 11th inning.

San Diego Padres:  the Padres allowed the Los Angeles Dodgers to score 14 runs on 14 hits, with four home runs. But hey they did manage to get 3 runs in so maybe they aren’t horrible…

Kansas City Royals… What the heck were you doing? 3rd basemen Mike Moustakas crushed the ball in the top of the 4th and scored the only run for the Missouri team. The 2015 World Series champions started their season with a struggle but I believe they have great things in store for this season…( I hope). The Twins had a tribute video for Ventura who recently died in a car accident. It was a class act and was awesome to see the two teams come together and honor his life. #RipAce

Texas Rangers looked like they had the win in the bag with a 5 to 1 lead. Then Jose Ramirez hit a two-run homer and later first baseman Edwin Encarnacion hit a game-tying homer.The Indians scored 3 more runs in the 9th taking the win. Insane game to say the least.

We are excited to have baseball back in our lives again. Have any predictions who will win the 2017 World Series? Leave your comments below!
