Week 1 EGI
One week down, and here are the most exciting games so far. I rolled the first few games into this one for a complete look at the season so far. In the future, I’ll provide a breakdown of both the top 10 games of the week, and a running total for the season.
|Red Sox Tigers||8-Apr||59.81|
|Red Sox Tigers||5-Apr||52.00|
|Blue Jays Indians||5-Apr||51.97|
Somewhat surprisingly, four of the games from opening day made it into the top 10. Yankees @ Rays top this list with their opener on April 6th. The teams traded early runs with rocky starts by both James Shields and CC Sabathia. However, the real fireworks came at the end, as the Rays put runners on first and third with no one out in a one-run game in the 8th. David Robertson struck out Stephen Vogt, Jose Molina, and Matthew Joyce in order to end the threat. Then in the 9th, the Rays jumped on Mariano Rivera with a single and a triple to tie the game. After two intentional walks and a strike out, Carlos Pena ended the game with a single to left.
The second game of the week was the Red Sox @ Tigers. This game featured two blown saves by the Red Sox and a two multi-run comebacks by the Tigers in their last at bats. The Tigers rallied via a Miguel Cabrera homerun in the 9th and an Alex Avila homerun in the 11th. Notably, Avila was down to the Tigers last strike when he hit his. This 13-12 game is also the highest scoring of the year so far.
Through the first 95 games, the Tigers have been the most interesting to watch.
