Topps Now: May 22, 2019

Time to get going again.

On May 22, 2019, Michael Chavis won the game in the 13th inning against the Blue Jays in a wild game.  Boston led by a run in the bottom of the ninth inning, but couldn't get the job done (a frequent problem this year unfortunately).  The Blue Jays tied the game.  Boston took the lead in the 12th inning on a Mookie Betts home run, but again, the bullpen gave it back to Toronto.  Michael Chavis, who was on a tear in May homered in the 13th inning, and this time, Heath Hembree held onto the lead to give Boston the win.  Chavis has cooled significantly since May, but is still having a very good rookie campaign.

  1. I haven't been paying attention to the AL ROY race but I imagine that he's still in the top 5 at least.
