The 2022 Major League Baseball season began a couple a weeks ago, so I thought it would be a good idea to give an update on the teams standings. Currently, in the American League the teams that are in the lead in their division are the Cleveland Guardians, Toronto Blue Jays, and the Los Angeles Angels. In the National League the Saint Louis Cardinals, New York Mets, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are in leading their division. Overall, the team with the most wins throughout both leagues is the New York Mets. As of right now the Mets have 10 wins and only 4 losses. The team with the worst record is the Cincinnati Reds. They have the most losses between all of the teams right now with currently 11 losses and only 2 wins.
The Brewers are currently in second place in the central division and only have one less win than the Saint Louis Cardinals. The Brewers currently have had 8 wins and 5 losses so far this season. They have had a rough start to the season, but hopefully as the season goes on they will start to perform better and be more consistent. A few updates on the Brewers players is that right now Andrew McCutchen has the highest batting average for the team at .261. Willy Adames and Rowdy Tellez each have 7 runs for the team which is the most out of all of the other players. Tellez also has 3 home runs for the Brewers which is the most out of everyone else.
Below is a little information on the standings for the Brewers Players:
On Milwaukee 4/14 day the Brewer’s ended the game with a win! This is exciting after they have had a rough start against the Chicago Cubs. They ended up winning the series against the Baltimore Orioles after the Cubs series. Right now the Brewers record is 4 wins and 3 loses. The score of last night’s game on 4/14 ended up being Milwaukee Brewers 5 and the St. Louis Cardinals 1. The Brewers had a total of nine hits and the Cardinals had a total of five. The Brewers did end up having two errors. The Brewers had a good start to the game with getting at least one run in the first three innings. They play another game tonight against the Cardinals at 7:10 pm for the second game of the series.

I will be going to the game this evening and I hope that they can pull off another win. I am looking forward to going to my first game of the season. I wish the weather was a little bit nicer though so I could enjoy tailgating before the game. It will still be a lot of fun though being able to go and watch the game. Maybe it will start to warm up soon and fans will be able to tailgate with nice weather. I know that is one thing I am really looking forward to doing this summer.
The Major League Baseball 2022 season started yesterday on April 7th. It is exciting that the season has officially began. One of the major events that happened this past opening day was that the Diamondbacks beat the Padres with a walk-off home run. Until then the Diamondbacks did not have a single hit until the 9th inning. Seth Beer a left fielder for the Diamondbacks hit the winning home run. The ironic thing about Beer having a walk-off home run for the Diamondbacks is that it was also National Beer Day. What a crazy coincident. Below is a picture of the Diamondbacks celebrating.
Below are some of the final scores from Opening Day:
Mets: 5 Nationals: 1
Astros: 3 Angels: 1
Diamondbacks: 4 Padres: 2
Cubs: 5 Brewers: 4
Royals: 3 Guardians: 1
Cardinals: 9 Pirates: 0
Reds: 6 Braves: 3
Most of the games were pretty close scores. The Cardinals however dominated the game against the Pirates. The Cardinals had a total of three home runs throughout the game and did not let the Pirates score at all.
Unfortunately, the Brewers could not pull through with a win against the Cubs. It was a close game throughout, but the Brewers could not finish with the win. Hopefully they will step up their game and win the series.
It will be exciting to watch this season and keep up with all the different teams and players. I will be going to my first Brewers game of the season a week from today when they play the Cardinals. The Cardinals came out strong for Opening Day so it should be a good series to watch.
The new Major League season is approaching. There are a few new rules this 2022 season that you should know about.
To start off, the rosters are now 28 players instead of the original 26 players. This will be in effect between both sides until May 2nd. The reasoning behind this is because the lockout lasted long, and it gives the teams some time to find their completed roster without a rush.
Another new rule is that the pitcher can be the designated hitter for the whole game even if they stop pitching. This lets the pitcher stay in the game without having to pitch all nine innings.
There will now be a universal designated hitter. Now there will be designated hitters in both the American and National League. This is definitely one of the bigger changes to the MLB this year and will be interesting to see it come into action.
Now when there are extra innings there will be an automatic runner that starts on second base. This was a new rule due to the pandemic and it continues through the 2022 season as well.
Lastly, when there is a doubleheader games will be nine innings now. They used to be seven for the last couple of seasons because of the pandemic, but they now have changed back to nine.
These new changes to Major League Baseball will make for an exciting 2022 season. The new season is just around the corner and I am very excited. I will be going to my first MLB game of the season in just a couple weeks for a Brewer game. That time of year is finally coming!
