sportingnews.com photo file: San Francisco Giant broadcaster Duane Kuiper (in photo) along with brothers Giants TV producer Jeff Kuiper and Oakland A’s TV broadcaster Glenn Kuiper (not in photo) will attend their father’s funeral this weekend and will be on bereavement from their broadcasting work.

On the MLB The Show podcast with Matt:

#1 Giants broadcaster Duane Kuiper, A’s broadcaster Glenn Kuiper, and Giants TV producer Jeff Kuiper will all fly to Racine, Wisconsin in preparation of the funeral for their father Henry, who passed away at age 94. Henry was a auctioneer and a farmer locally in Racine and allowed a restaurant to be built on his property. He also was involved in fast pitch baseball and would not let Duane drive the tractor on the family farm because Duane could not drive the tractor straight, leaving ziz zags embarrassing the farming community.

#2 San Diego Padres’ Fernando Tatis Jr. will sit out the rest of the 2019 season with a back injury. Tatis was a candidate for the 2019 Rookie of the Year award, hitting .317, 13 doubles, 22 home runs, and 53 RBIs in 84 games.

Andrew Benintendi and Mitch Moreland got RBI triples and Sox pitcher Rick Porchello pitched six innings, giving up only one run in the victory. For the O’s, it was their fifth straight loss.

#4 Big win for the Minnesota Twins on Friday night with a narrow 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers. The Twins maintain a 1.5 game lead in the AL Central over the second place Cleveland Indians. The Twins’ Max Kepler and Jonathan Schoop got two-run homers in Arlington Texas.

#5 The Los Angeles Dodgers are just simply running away with it in the NL West. They picked up another victory over the Atlanta Braves 8-3 at Sun Trust Stadium. LA’s Cody Bellinger hit for home run number 41. The Dodgers’ Max Muncy and Justin Turner both hit home runs in the victory Friday night.

file photo from Cincinnati.com: Former Miami Marlins Tony Perez (left) and Andre Dawson (right) who were fired by Marlins owner Derek Jeter will most likely skip Jeter’s Hall of Fame induction in Cooperstown.

On the MLB The Show podcast with Matt:

#1 Former Miami Marlins Andre Dawson, Jeff Conine, Tony Perez and Jack McKeon most likely will not attend Marlins owner and former New York Yankee great Derek Jeter’s Hall of Fame speech at his induction. The four former players and McKeon the manager were unceremoniously fired when Jeter took over as team owner.

#2 It was the Houston Astros’ Gerrit Cole who was the pitcher who reached 200 strikeouts the fastest in the majors this season. Now, the team who has reached 200 home runs the fastest, are the Minnesota Twins making no secret they’re a fences swinging club.

#3 Speaking of home runs, the Boston Red Sox Mookie Betts’ three-home run game. He’s the fourth player in the last four days to hit three runs in a game.

#4 The New York Mets’ Robinson Cano, who had hit only six home runs all season, got three home runs on Tuesday starting the multiple home run derby for the last four days.

#5 The San Francisco Giants’ Madison Bumgarner sweepstakes is over, according to sources.

#3 The Houston Astros pitcher Gerritt Cole is the second fastest pitcher to reach 200 strikeouts in baseball history and he did it against the Oakland A’s in a 11-1 rout.
