Comedy Central Report, 6/26


Borrowing from the media’s name for the National League Central, the Comedy Central Report is a daily feature which recaps all the previous day’s games in which a central team played. Keep track of all six teams vying for the most mediocre division title in baseball.

Pirates DNP
Recap: I feel as though in the short existence of Doubt About It I have been rather pessimistic about the Pirates. This afternoon, though, expect a pro Pirates article. Yes, that's right, I will defend this sorry excuse for a team. Until then, enjoy this screencap from a previous Pirates' game.



Brewers dominate Astros 6-1
Recap: Ben Sheets pitched a solid game and Prince Fielder hit another homerun. The guy is absolutely ridiculous.

All You Need to Know: Just to remind you, back in 2002 the Pirates drafted Bryan Bullington with the first overall pick. B.J. Upton went next and Prince Fielder went 7th.

Cubs lose lead then come back, win 10-9
Recap: Alfonso Soriano plays the hero again, hitting a two run single in the bottom of the 9th to win the game.

All You Need to Know: Patrick Kane, the #1 draft pick in this year's NHL draft, threw out the ceremonial first pitch. He looks like a 14 year-old boyscout. To serve as a comparison:

Patrick Kane: 5'10'', 162 lbs
Sidney Crosby: 5'11' 200 lbs



Mets walk-off on Cardinals, 2-1
Recap: Shawn Green hit a walk-off homerun in the bottom of the 11th to win it for the Mets. Mike Maroth, who the Cardinals recently acquired from the Tigers, pitched 7.1 innings allowing only 2 hits and 1 ER.

Cardinals Stat of the Day: No stat today, just a picture of the always likable Tony La Russa.



Reds DNP
