Curveballs for Jobu

Curveballs for Jobu is Offbasepercentage's daily trip around the ballparks.

Today's honorary bat boy is Pete O'Brien.

Orioles 5, Redsox 2. It's always nice when a jerk no one likes loses as was the case Tuesday when the O's defeated Josh Beckett. After the game, Beckett announced he has added a 9th necklace in preparation for his next start. With the win, Baltimore completed a 17-10 month of August, which officially makes them the favorites to win the 2019 AL East title. Marco Scutaro: 0-for-4.

Reds 8, Brewers 4
Astros 3, Cardinals 0

The staff at Jobu would like to officially put an end to the NL Central race. Tuesday's win for the Reds put them seven games up on the Cards, who when asked to come up to the plate and hit against Houston, declined.

Bluejays 13, Rays 5. Another home run by Brady Anderson-his 43rd-keyed a 10-run sixth inning for Toronto.

Pirates 14, Cubs 7. I had to check this statistic several times before publishing it, but the Pittsburgh win Tuesday was its fifth in the last 43 road games. 5-38. Somewhere, Spanky Lavalliere weeps while soaking in a bubble bath prepared by Jose Lind.

Royals 10, Rangers 9. Matt Treanor: 1-for-5.

Marlins 1, Nationals 0 (10). Chad Tracy singled in the only run in the bottom of the 10th to lead Florida to a win in front of an announced crowd of 11.
