Each day we’ll bring you the video highlights of MLB The Show 20 Players Tournament, and some of the trash talking if that gets to be more fun as we go here.
Last night, 13 different players were in action, with each team playing three or four games. All games are three innings, which makes them fly by and adds to the drama. And with that many games going a day, we’re going to have some walk-offs. And boy did we ever yesterday.
We start with the Rays Blake Snell, who has the advantage with plenty of experience playing in front of no fans at his home. But for this one he’s got some music bumping in the background as he walks it off, going yard with a digitized Mike Zunino for his third of FOUR wins on the day against Dwight Smith Jr. and the Orioles.
Snell-zilla is now 6-2 in the tournament, and appears to be a playoff contender.
How about some late game drama for the Giants and Hunter Pence, who walks it off as Buster Posey for the 3-2 win over Kansas City and Brett Phillips. And Lexi Pence jumps in for the celebration at the end as well.
But baseball can be so cruel, as in the very next game Pence got a perfect game thrown on him by Smith Jr. and the Baltimore Orioles. Granted it was only three innings, but at least one baserunner is usually nice.
But Soto got the best kind of revenge, with a 2-0 win over Josh Hader and Milwaukee, hitting this bomb as himself in the game.
