The Astros have to be absolutely exhausted after their two games on Thursday and Friday, but they are two wins richer so they can’t be complaining too much.One day after defeating the Mariners in 14 innings in Seattle, the Astros (44-21) flew back to Houston and defeated the Orioles in 11, but they got a little help in the process. Ruptured testicle sends Mariners’ Mitch Haniger to the IL Dud of the NightJose Urena gave up six earned runs on 11 hits in three innings of a 7-1 Marlins loss to the Braves. He also gave up a home run to Ronald Acuna which really has to sting. Kind of like an unnecessary beanball.You love to see it.#ChopOn pic.twitter.com/KffaO2X1YS— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) June 8, 2019HighlightJesse Winker made an amazing catch in foul territory in the Reds’ 4-2 loss to the Phillies.Cue the “Top 10” music. #BornToBaseball pic.twitter.com/E9Zw9UxQRh— Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) June 8, 2019What’s NextCardinals (31-30) at Cubs (35-27), 7:15 p.m. ET — The Cardinals seem to have weathered the storm that was the month of May and sit 3 1/2 games back of the National League Central Division-leading Cubs. Jack Flaherty (4-3, 3.76 ERA) has gotten through a bit of a sophomore slump to open the season and has given up three earned runs or less in each of his last seven starts. Jon Lester (4-4, 3.32) bounced back from three bad starts to toss seven innings of one-run ball his last time out. In the 11th inning with the game tied at 3, Robinson Chirinos doubled to left with Yuli Gurriel on base.The not-so-fleet-of-foot infielder then trucked around the bases and was waved around to go score, probably incorrectly. Related News The throw to the plate was in plenty of time to grab him too, but there is a reason the Orioles are 19-44 this season, not a ton is going right for them.And on this play, it simply came down to catching the baseball, which as a catcher, Chance Sisco has some experience in.The problem is he didn’t catch the ball and Gurriel was able to snake his way to home plate to score the winning run.#Safe!!! #YuliGurriel battles for home plate on a huge hit by #RobinsonChirinos. #Astros best #Orioles 4-3 in the 11th!! #KHOU11 pic.twitter.com/5ah0GknYHA— Shern-Min Chow 🙋🏻 (@ShernMinKHOU) June 8, 2019The play neatly summed up the season for both teams. Houston found a way to win again despite being without Jose Altuve, George Springer and Carlos Correa and the Orioles found a way to lose because it’s just really difficult for them to win right now.Studs of the NightDavid Peralta went 3 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs in Arizona’s 8-2 win over the Blue Jays.Brandon Woodruff matched a career high with 10 strikeouts while tossing six innings and allowing three runs in the Brewers’ 10-4 win over the Pirates.Marwin Gonzalez went 4 for 5 with an RBI in the Twins’ 6-3 win over the Tigers.
Two armed men on Saturday evening terrorised and robbed a businessman of cash and other items when they invaded his Overwinning, New Amsterdam home.Reports are that the businessman’s son was just about to lock the gate when he was confronted by a gunman.Deonarine Albert, 52, and his 25-year-old son, Roberto had just arrived home when the robbery took place.Guyana Times understands that moments prior to the robbery, Albert’s son-in-law returned home with his wife and left the gate open for the businessman to drive into the yard.However, the young man was held at gunpoint and escorted into the yard, where the bandits ordered the businessman into the house and demanded money and jewellery. He was gun-butted as the intruders made their demands.The bandits collected the man’s mobile phone, an undisclosed sum of cash, and a quantity of jewellery before making good their escape. This publication was told that as the men were leaving the scene, they discharged several shots.The Police were subsequently summoned to the scene where they were given access to the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) recordings. They were able to identify a white Toyota Spacio as the getaway car, but up to press time, they were still hunting for the two bandits.On October 11, 2016, bandits used a similar method to enter the Alberts’ home. On that occasion Roberto was beaten by three armed men who forced him to hand over $620,000 along with his car keys.They then fled the scene using the businessman’s car, which was later found abandoned at Savannah Park, New Amsterdam.It was reported that the men exited the vehicle and boarded a waiting car and made good their escape. The car, according to Albert, had in it $1,000,000 worth of phone cards, two laptops, and five cellular phones.To date, no one was prosecuted for that robbery.
