On a day the sports world was rocked by the horrible bus accident that killed half the SJHL Humboldt Broncos, MLB Day 10 did it’s best to ease the pain.

Every once in a while you have a game where the umpire wants to be in the headlines. This was one of those games.
Home plate umpire Marty Foster just had one of the most inexcusable ejections I have ever seen. Rendon never said a word. Good for Dave Martinez for getting his player’s back. #Nats pic.twitter.com/Hk4DwmP86Z

PHILADELPHIA 20 MIAMI 1
What do you in this situation other than post the offensive stats of the team that scores 20?
I suppose one could hope the mercy rule finds the MLB?
This is why there should be a knockout rule in the MLB. 10 after 7 innings. Now I heard the Marlins are cancelling the rest of the season to compete in the 12 & under Cooperstown tournament. @mlb #mlb #marlinsvsphillies #marinstocooperstown #smhmarlins #shakeotoffitsonlyonegame #longseason #keepyourheadsupfish #firstawayseriesoftheseason #toughloss #mlbimplementthatruleplease #trustthejeterprocess

WALKOFF. Andrew McCutchen, SO CLUTCH.

COLORADO 3 ATLANTA 2
A literal “walk off”!

OAKLAND 7 ANGELS 3
Expect some poo to be thrown at the Angels after tonight in regards to their 6-man rotation idea.
JC Ramirez has given up three runs, walked five and thrown 55 pitches over two innings vs. the A’s. It’s not what you want.
