Dallas Keuchel gets no help from Astros
Posted 7:31 am, 11/08/2018
There was so much more to Dallas Keuchels first lo s of the season than Dallas Keuchel. The Astros hit into three inning- Willson Contreras Jersey ending double plays, they got shut out over six-plus innings by a rookie, and Houston went 0-9 with runners in scoring position in the 3-0 lo s.Keuchel may have been handed his first lo s of the year, but this lo s was on the lineup, not the former Cy Young winner.At the same time some props have to be given to Rays starter Austin Pruitt. Even though the Astros are mi sing two of their most dangerous hitters in Carlos Correa and George Springer, the former Houston Cougar Pruitt still held one of the best-hitting teams in the league scorele s over 6 1/3 innings while earning his sixth win of the season.Houston's lineup didn't do a good job, but Pruitt did his job with what he was given. Logan Morrison gave him a two-run lead Chicago Cubs White Jerseys in the first inning with his 28th home run of the seasonand Pruitt never looked back.Fortunately for the Astros, the Mariners lost, so Houstonmaintains its15-game lead on the division.Stud of the NightErvin Santana's start may not have been perfect, but the value of the Javier Baez Cool Base White Jersey complete game isso overlooked in today's gamethat his performance Wednesday deserves its just due. Santana to sed a complete game in 110 pitches, striking out nine and allowing just two runs on four hits and a walk in the Twins' 5-2 win over the Padres. With the trade of Brandon Kintzler, the Twins need to give their bullpen a rest every chance they get and Santana did just that, as he has all year long. This was his fifth complete game of the season. The next closest starter to that in the league this year has two.Dud of the NightPaul DeJong has been really good for the Cardinals this season, but an 0-for-5night with fourstrikeouts, four men left on base and an error is le s than ideal for the Cardinals even in a 5-4 win over the Brewers.HighlightGiancarlo Stanton is far more than a man that can hit the ball a county mile. He' Javier Baez Womens Cool Base Jersey s an athlete who was looked at by USC to play tight end and can do it all on thefield and probably could have done just as much on the gridiron as well. He showed off that athleticism with the catch of the night Wednesday on a Brian Goodwin fly ball to right field in the Marlins' 7-0 victory.Giancarlo called game. pic.twitter.com/SjLhLs8fBw MLB (@MLB) August 3, 2017What's Next: Addison Russell Jersey Yankees (57-49) at Indians (57-48) 7:10 p.m. ET Sonny Gray was one of the biggest names to be traded at the deadline Monday and he is set to make his Yankees debut on the road in Cleveland Thursday. Add that to the fact that he'll be facing off with Indians ace Corey Kluber this one is definitely a must-watch.
