Today’s 60 Second Lecture, take notes. 📝
Young studs across the country impressed in last nights games. On offense, Ronald Acuna and Gleyber Torres both hit 2 homers and for pitching, Chris Paddack and Mike Soroka had stellar outings, each giving up just 1 run in 6 and 8 innings respectively. Nights like this are great for baseball; the newest upcoming stars taking over the highlight reels in our sport. Paddack and Soroka are undeniably two of the best starters, not just rookies, in the National League so far this season and I can’t wait to see these guys flash their potential the rest of the year.
Next, two NL powerhouses went at it last night as the Phillies visited the Cubs in Chicago. The two first place teams battled into extra innings with the Phils eventually winning the game in the 10th after a JT Realmuto solo shot put them ahead 5-4. To me, this is a likely playoff preview. I say the Cubs win the next 2 and Philly closes it out with a dub for a 2-2 series tie; fun stuff in the Windy City.
Lastly, the Twins routed the Angels 3-1 yesterday in their 31st win of the season. Minnesota is 15 games above .500 and hold a 5 and a half game lead in the AL Central. This team is legit. Their run differential is second in baseball behind only the Astros, and at this point they’re the favorite to win this division.
