MLB Tuesday Results and Scores: Underdogs Rule the Day
Tampa Bay Blown Out by Blue Jays
The MLB Tuesday results and scores show it was a good day to bet underdogs. Favorites were just 6-9 on the day and showed a $675 loss. Betting $100 on each underdog would have yielded a profit of $496. Totals were 6-9 on the day, moving the season record to 353-351-30. Home MLB teams were 7-8 on the day.
Five of the 15 games were decided by just one run, but there were also five games decided by five or more runs.
Blue Jays Hammer Tampa Bay
The MLB Tuesday results and scores show it was an ugly day for the MLB leaders, Tampa Bay. The Rays had lost by more than five runs just once all season before being thumped 20-1 by Toronto.
Things were so bad in Tampa that catcher Christian Bethancourt was brought in to pitch in the ninth inning. The Blue Jays pounded out 27 hits and scored nine runs in the ninth inning.
Yankees Rally Against Baltimore
The New York Yankees managed to take the opener of a key three-game series against Baltimore. The Yankees entered the bottom of the ninth trailing 5-4.
But an Aaron Judge home run tied the game and the Yankees won it in the 10th. Anthony Volpe’s sacrifice fly was the game-deciding swing of the bat. Judge moved into a tie for third place for the MLB leaders in home runs. It was his 14th round-tripper of the MLB season.
Dodgers Pummel Atlanta
The Los Angeles Dodgers aren’t underdogs often, but on Tuesday they were the largest of the season. Spencer Strider was roughly a -200 over Bobby Miller, who was making his MLB debut.
Strider didn’t pitch bad, but Miller was solid, helping the Dodgers to an 8-1 victory. Miller allowed one run in five innings and Will Smith and J.D. Martinez each knocked in three runs for L.A.
Brewers Blank Astros
The MLB Tuesday results and scores have the Brewers getting a strong start from an unlikely source in Colin Rea. Rea picked up his first win of the season and lowered his ERA to 4.71 after pitching into the sixth inning against the Astros. Houston managed five hits in the contest.
Giants Rally From Early Deficit
One of the better games played on Tuesday, was the San Francisco Giants and Minnesota Twins. The Twins led 3-0 after five innings, but San Francisco scored two in the sixth and two more in the seventh to get the win. Michael Conforto hit a two-run homer in the seventh to help Alex Cobb earn the victory.
Rockies Hold Off Marlins
No lead is ever really safe in Coors Field and Colorado saw a 5-1 lead turn into a 5-4 advantage, but were able to hold on against Miami to get the win. The Marlins outhit Colorado 11-7 but the Rockies made the most of their hits. Austin Gomber earned the win for the Rockies, improving to 4-4 on the season.
Seattle Edges Oakland
The Oakland A’s jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead at Seattle, only to see the Mariners score three runs in the fifth. Back-to-back home runs by J.P. Crawford and Ty France accounted for the Seattle runs. Neither team scored after that and Paul Sewald earned his 10th save of the season, holding Oakland at Bay in the ninth inning.Follow us on Twitter
