JML update, April 6, 2018 (games of April 5)

Posted on: April 6th, 2018 by Ron Kaplan

Ryan Braun had his first double and first stolen base of the season as the Milwaukee Brewers (4-3) lost to the visiting Chicago Cubs, 8-0. He basically walked to second against Jon Lester, who is notoriously bad at holding runners on. But Braun was caught almost immediately when he tried to steal at third.

Ryan Sherriff allowed one hit in .2 innings as the St. Louis Cardinals (3-4) lost to the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks, 3-1.

Neither Richard Bleier nor Danny Valencia appeared for the Baltimore Orioles (2-5) who ruined the Yankees home opener with a 5-2 win.

Maybe that will shut them up (for the moment): Gabe Kapler‘s Philadelphia Phillies won their home opener, shutting out the Miami Marlins, 5-0.

No games for the LA Dodgers (Joc Pederson); LA Angels (Ian Kinsler), Toronto Blue Jays (Kevin Pillar); or Houston Astros (Alex Bregman).
