Episode 053: Carnage at Comerica

Matthew and Toby return to Three Up, Three Down for some deeper baseball banter, starting with the brawl(s) between the Yankees and the Tigers. Other items discussed: Rich Hill’s remarkable oh-so-close-to-a-no-hitter performance; some tough words for the St. Louis Cardinals from Rally Cat’s legal team; Ian Kinsler being a jerk (paraphrasing Matthew here); a sort-of happy ending to an ugly homophobic incident in Oakland; and the ludicrous story of a Cleveland pitcher being struck by lightning on the field in 1919.

And for the first time, the boys open up the Listener Mailbox to take some questions from Battery Mates Nation.
