Verlander dominates in Bronx, sneers fans best

The biggest matchup in the first part of this week is at Yankee Stadium, with two of the best teams in the field Baseball in an ALCS rematch. The Astros took this in large part thanks to the continued dominance of 35-year-old Justin Verlander.

Verlander only allowed one run (a solo Greg Bird Homerun) in 6 2/3 innings, while he frayed five and did not leave. He is now 7-2 with a 1.11 ERA and 0.71 WHIP.

Since joining Astros last season, here's what Verlander has done: 12-2, 1.09 ERA, 0.69 WHIP, 141 K, 20 BB, 115 1/3 IP.

Just ridiculous.

When Yankee's fans boasted Verlanders as he left the field, he came through with a mocking hat tip:

Got one day.

Gio Dominates Beltway

The Nationals visited the Orioles to begin the final incarnation of the Battle of the Beltway, which was about as one-sided as their records suggested. National starter Gio Gonzalez went 7 2/3 scoreless innings, leaving only six goals and two walks. His ERA has dropped to 2.10 and it seems to be a pretty sneaky character, right? How many people are talking about his achievements so far this season?

This catch!

The Red Sox had some fun with the Blue Jays in the matinee action, especially with Andrew Benintendi's Day (3 for 4 with a Triple, Home Runs and 4 RBI) and JD Martinez's # 17 , Homer. How about this catch from Jackie Bradley Jr.?

Yowza.

Montgomery, Rizzo lead Cubs over fighting pirates

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo had a terrible April, but he was well in May, putting together one of his better games on the season's plate on Monday. He started the scoring with a solo shot:

He would end up going 3 for 4 with three RBI.

On the hill, Mike Montgomery was brilliant in his first start of the year. Yu Darvish was placed on the handicapped list, so the Cubs brought Montgomery out of the bullpen and he was perfect through four innings. He would end up working 5 2/3 innings (he is still not fully outstretched, but has reached 76 positions). He allowed only two strokes – one of the infield variants – while beating five without a walk. Fifty-four of his 76 playing fields were strikes and he also commanded the zone.

At the end of the pirates they have lost eight of their last 10 games. They were in first place before this track started and are now in fourth place, only three games over .500.
