Armadillo: Tuesday's six-pack

-- Duke 68, Wisconsin 63-- Badgers' bench played total of 52 minutes in two games; would've loved to have seen Duke-Kentucky.

-- Not to say Duke gets preferential treatment, but by my count there are 8 former Dukies analyzing basketball on TV; next most? Best I can do is UCLA, with three.

-- Big 14 is now 0-6 in national title games since 2000; six different schools lost

-- San Jose Sharks will miss the NHL playoffs for first time in ten years.

-- If I hear much more about Eldrick Woods' practice rounds, I'm going to puke.

-- Could someone explain to me why George Raveling is in the Hall of Fame? Not to be disrespectful, but what has he done to be a Hall of Famer? Someone help me.....

**********


Armadillo: Tuesday's List of 13: Wrapping up Opening Day........

13) Rockies 10, Brewers 0-- Rough day for Milwaukee, which lost Ryan Braun to a ribcage injury and got crushed in home opener-- it was 10-0 in 4th inning. Colorado's pitcher Kendrick even had two hits. Guess it was an omen for the Badgers too-- bad day in Cheeseland.

12) Mets 3, Nationals 1-- Scherzer was throwing no-hitter in sixth inning when Nats botched a short pop-up in centerfield, then Duda knocked in couple runs with Mets' first hit of game. Mets' third run scored after another Desmond error. Bartolo Colon was tough for the Metropolitans.

11) Braves 2, Marlins 1-- Only the Marlins could have a rain delay in a home game in a domed stadium; how about closing the damn roof when you know it is going to rain???? By the way, it rains most every day in Miami at 5:00 or so.

10) Reds 5, Pirates 2-- Cueto was brilliant for seven innings, Reds bullpen let Pirates tie it, then Todd Frazier hit 3-run homer to send fans home happy. It is tough to recognize Andrew McCutchen without his dredlocks.

9) Dodgers 6, Padres 3-- This is where I complain about fact that two of my fantasy baseball starters are hurt already. Baseball is a sport where a guy went on the DL this spring after he got hurt while sneezing. Lineman on the Patriots played a Super Bowl with a torn ACL.

8) Blue Jays 6, Bronx 1-- Didi Gregorius got thrown out stealing 3rd in bottom of 8th inning, with two outs and Jays leading 5-1, with Teixeira up. On bright side, you can get a 28-ounce steak in their fancy restaurant in their stadium for $62, so there's that. Toronto has no excuses this year; they're a good team.

7) Tigers 4, Twins 0-- 12 years ago, Dave Bliss was basketball coach at Baylor; one of his players killed a teammate, and Bliss told his players to portray their dead teammate as a drug dealer to conceal the fact that Bliss was breaking rules in how he funded the player's scholarship.

Bliss is 71 now and somehow, Southwestern Christian University in Bethany, OK has hired him to be their basketball coach. I swear, if they hired me it would have been better that hiring this creep. Scumbag is too kind a word for him.

6) Orioles 6, Rays 2-- Not sure how much $$$$ Buck Showalter makes, but I'm sure it ain't enough; the job he has done in Baltimore is really excellent. Not a lot to like about the way the Rays are looking; plus they have pitching injuries..

5) Royals 10, White Sox 1-- I've never heard of a pitcher having a cramp in his pitching thumb, but that is what drove Ventura out of the game. We get excited about Opening Day, but overreact to Opening Day results; its a long season.

4) Mariners 4, Angels 1-- Just glad the A's didn't open against King Felix this year; we've done that way too many times. Its cool that it looks like Hernandez will pitch his whole career in Seattle, even if they are our divisional rivals.

3) Astros 2, Indians 0-- JD Martinez bats 5th for Detroit, a really good team; he got released (RELEASED?!?!?!?!) by the Astros last March. How does the GM of the Astros explain that one to his owner? Doesn't he have any assistants who will tell him when he's about to do something stupid?

2) Red Sox 8, Phillies 0-- Weird situation here, as most people expect Hamels to be on the Red Sox by the end of July, and here he is, pitching against them. Pedroia and Ramirez both hit couple taters. Not lot of optimism in Philly.

1) A's 8, Rangers 0-- Sonny Gray was tremendous, A's broke 10-game skid on Opening Day. Its only one game of 162, but Ike Davis at 1B is a huge upgrade defensively over the suspects who played there last year. Jesse Hahn starts for Oakland tonight; he went to high school with Matt Harvey of the Mets.

Giants' Peavy to miss Tuesday start, Vogelsong in

When the San Francisco Giants take on the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday, it's going to be Ryan Vogelsong getting the ball for the reigning champs, per Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Jake Peavy was initially scheduled to make the start but said himself Monday that he's going to be skipped this time around. The veteran was roughed up in his final two Cactus League outings, allowing 13 runs over just 6 2/3 innings.

Vogelsong went 8-13 with a 4.00 ERA last season. Rubby De La Rosa will take the bump for the D-Backs.


Wind blowing in at Wrigley Field Tuesday

Wind will blow in from right field at roughly 15 miles per hour when the Chicago Cubs host the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field Tuesday evening.

Furthermore, forecasts are calling for a 45 percent possibility of showers as the game progresses.

The Cubs are priced at -120 while the total remains off the board.



MLB roundup: Red Sox rock Phils in opener

PHILADELPHIA -- Clay Buchholz combined with two relievers on a three-hit shutout, and the Boston Red Sox hit five home runs to batter the Philadelphia Phillies 8-0 in the season opener Monday afternoon.

Dustin Pedroia and Hanley Ramirez each hit two homers for Boston, with the second by Ramirez a ninth-inning grand slam off reliever Jake Diekman. Mookie Betts went deep of Phillies starter Cole Hamels (0-1).

Buchholz, making his first Opening Day start after going 8-11 with a 5.34 ERA in 2014, did not allow a hit until Ryan Howard doubled on an 0-2 pitch with two outs in the fourth. Philadelphia's Carlos Ruiz and Grady Sizemore also lashed back-to-back singles in the seventh, though Buchholz escaped the inning unscathed.

Red Sox relievers Junichi Tazawa and Tommy Layne each worked a scoreless inning in relief.

A's 8, Rangers 0

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Sonny Gray took a no-hitter into the eighth inning, and Ben Zobrist belted a two-run home run on his first swing for Oakland, helping the Athletics snap a 10-year losing streak on Opening Day.

Gray retired 21 of the first 23 batters he faced before Rangers left fielder Ryan Rua laced a two-strike single to right field to open the eighth. Playing with an entirely new cast behind him than in the 2014 opener with the exception of second baseman Eric Sogard, Gray was pulled with a 7-0 lead after he threw 98 pitches in eight innings. He allowed just the one hit and one walk while striking out three.

Stephen Vogt added a three-run, eighth-inning homer to boost Oakland's lead to 7-0.

Tigers 4, Twins 0

DETROIT -- David Price retired the first 13 batters he faced and fell one out shy of a complete-game five hitter, getting home run support from J.D. Martinez and Alex Avila in pacing Detroit to a victory over Minnesota.

Manager Brad Ausmus was booed when he came out to visit Price after the left-hander gave up a two-out single in the ninth, and he got booed again when he yanked the starter for closer Joe Nathan following an infield single by the Twins first baseman Joe Mauer.

Nathan got formers Tiger right fielder Torii Hunter to look at a called third strike to end the game and record the save.

Dodgers 6, Padres 3

LOS ANGELES -- Shortstop Jimmy Rollins hit a go-ahead three-run home run in the eighth inning, and Los Angeles rallied for a victory over San Diego.

Rollins, who was making his Dodgers debut, tagged reliever Shawn Kelly (0-1) by driving a pitch over the wall in right with one out in the eighth.

Dodgers reliever Joel Peralta (1-0) tossed a scoreless inning for the win. Chris Hatcher earned his first career save. First baseman Adrian Gonzalez also homered for Los Angeles.

Padres center fielder Matt Kemp, a former Dodger, went 2-for-4 and drove in all three San Diego runs.

Marlins 1, Braves 2

MIAMI -- Right fielder Nick Markakis drove in two runs, including the game-winner, as Atlanta defeated Miami.

Jason Grilli, Atlanta's new closer after Craig Kimbrel was traded Sunday, got the save, his first with the Braves. Grilli struck out Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton and first baseman Michael Morse in a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

Atlanta pushed across the winning run in the sixth, breaking a 1-1 tie. Center fielder Eric Young Jr. led off with a double, advanced on a sacrifice bunt and scored on Markakis' ground out to second baseman Dee Gordon. The speedy Young slid under the tag of catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Blue Jays 6, Yankees 1

NEW YORK -- Right-hander Drew Hutchison pitched six outstanding innings, and Toronto opened the season with a victory over New York.

Hutchison, the youngest Opening Day starter in franchise history, allowed a solo home run to left fielder Brett Gardner among three hits. After going 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA in four spring training appearances, the 24-year-old struck out three, walked two and threw 57 of 93 pitches for strikes.

Former Yankees catcher Russell Martin had a two-run single, and first baseman Edwin Encarnacion slugged a two-run home run for Toronto, which scored five times in the top of the third inning against right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (0-1). Blue Jays rookie second baseman Devon Travis added his first career home run.

Rockies 10, Brewers 0

MILWAUKEE -- Corey Dickerson and Nolan Arenado homered, and Kyle Kendrick threw seven shutout innings as Colorado cruised to an Opening Day victory over Milwaukee.

Kendrick, a veteran right-hander in his first season for Colorado, scattered seven hits struck out six without a walk. He even chipped in on offense, scoring a run and accounting for a pair of the Rockies' 16 hits on the day.

Colorado wasted no time getting to Brewers right-hander Kyle Lohse, who gave up three first-inning doubles and found himself in a 4-0 hole after left fielder Dickerson smacked a 1-2 slider into the picnic area in right.

Orioles 6, Rays 2

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Chris Tillman took a shutout into the seventh inning, and Baltimore hit three home runs on the way to a win over Tampa Bay in the season opener.

Alejandro De Aza scored as the first batter of the season, then added a two-run home run. Steve Pearce and Ryan Flaherty also went deep for the Orioles. Tillman lasted 6 2/3 innings, giving up one run on four hits.

It was a disappointing debut for new Rays manager Kevin Cash, whose team committed an error on its first fielding chance and didn't get a hit until the fourth inning. Tampa Bay got a solo home run by Evan Longoria.

Mets 3, Nationals 1

WASHINGTON -- Bartolo Colon allowed one run in six innings, and New York beat Washington Nationals on Opening Day.

Colon allowed just three hits while striking out eight. He outdueled Washington starter Max Scherzer, who did not allow a hit in the first five innings. However, the Mets scored three unearned runs off Scherzer, as Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond committed two errors.

Mets first baseman Lucas Duda struck a two-run single in the sixth with two outs to give his team a 2-1 lead on New York's first hit of the season.

Royals 10, White Sox 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Yordano Ventura limited Chicago to one run in six-plus innings before leaving with a cramping right thumb as Kansas City beat the White Sox. The Royals snapped a six-game Opening Day losing streak.

Ventura allowed four hits -- one a solo homer Jose Abreu to lead off the seventh -- walked one and struck out two. He went down in agony after throwing a strike to Adam LaRoche in the seventh. He will be evaluated later in the week, but the Royals do not believe the injury is serious.

The Royals' offense included a three-run home run by Alex Rios, who went 3-for-4 in his Kansas City debut.

Mariners 4, Angels 1

SEATTLE -- Felix Hernandez turned in yet another dominating Opening Day performance, leading Seattle past Los Angeles. Hernandez improved to 6-0 with a 1.49 ERA in eight career openers, all with the Mariners.

Hernandez allowed two hits and one run over seven innings while striking out 10, walking one and hitting a batter. It marked the third time the Venezuela native recorded at least 10 strikeouts in an Opening Day start.

The Angels took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when center fielder Mike Trout, the reigning American League Most Valuable Player, hit a solo homer off Hernandez on the eighth pitch of the at-bat. In a matchup of two All-Stars, Hernandez went on to strike out Trout the next two times they faced.

Reds 5, Pirates 2

CINCINNATI -- Todd Frazier's tiebreaking, three-run home run in the eighth inning lifted Cincinnati past Pittsburgh on Opening Day. Right fielder Jay Bruce also homered for the Reds.

Cincinnati starter Johnny Cueto allowed just four hits in seven scoreless innings and fanned 10, a career high for Opening Day. Cueto was denied the victory when Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutcheon hit a two-run, game-tying homer in the eighth off right-hander Kevin Gregg.

However, with runners on first and third in the bottom of the eighth, Frazier crushed a 1-1 pitch from Pirates left-hander Tony Watson (0-1) and sent it sailing 432 feet to left field.

Astros 2, Indians 0

HOUSTON -- Dallas Keuchel worked seven shutout innings, and a revamped bullpen preserved his effort in Houston's win over Cleveland.

Keuchel allowed three hits and three walks while recording four strikeouts, including a critical whiff of Brandon Moss after Carlos Santana and Yan Gomes stroked consecutive singles to open the seventh inning. After he fanned Moss, Keuchel coaxed a pair of grounders back to the mound to strand Santana and Gomes, close the inning, and preserve his one-run lead.

Cleveland's Corey Kluber, the reigning American League Cy Young Award winner, gave up two runs on three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings. George Springer's sixth-inning single knocked in the first run, and Jake Marisnick's eighth-inning sacrifice fly capped the scoring.

Giants 5, Diamondbacks 4

PHOENIX -- Left-hander Madison Bumgarner gave up one run in seven innings, and center fielder Angel Pagan had three hits and two RBIs as San Francisco beat Arizona in the season opener for both teams.

Bumgarner, the 2014 World Series MVP, gave up six hits, struck out three and walked one in the first Opening Day start of his career.

Pagan had two doubles and a single, driving in runs in the third and fifth innings against Arizona right-hander Josh Collmenter (0-1). Giants second baseman Joe Panik had three hits and scored two runs, and shortstop Brandon Crawford had two hits and drove in two runs, helping the Giants take a 5-1 lead in the fifth.
