Gubie Tuesday: A Bee Delay and Devastating Mike Trout News

April 30, 2024

It was a real roller coaster of a day for baseball. It was announced that Mike Trout will require knee surgery. I expected this from Rendon not Trout.

Things just got weirder from there. The Dodgers game was delayed due to an invasion of bees. There was a bench clearing brawl in Milwaukee. A bee keeper got red of the bees and threw the first pitch for the Dodgers/Diamondbacks games. Ohtani had the chance to get a grand slam but a wild pitch blew it. The Dodgers took the lead with a balk. It was 11 PM and the game went into extra innings. The Dodgers ended up losing in the bottom of the 10th to a walk-off home run. The Angels also lost today.

Arby’s was a proud sponsor of bonus baseball tonight. Plenty of time for commercials. Between checking in on the bee situation and watching Lopez vs Lopez, I didn’t see many commercials on Bally Sports.
