Here's to a great week!
Indians 7, Tigers 2
Tigers 9, Indians 2
The Tribe split a doubleheader on Sunday with the Tigers. The end result is a bit disappointing, especially, after winning the first game and looking good doing it. Cody Anderson battled in game one and got some help from his bullpen, while Trevor Bauer struggled a lot in game two, giving up six runs in just three innings of work.
After Sunday's bombing, Bauer owns a rather unsightly 4.71 ERA on the year. Here's Bauer:
"When I pitch well, the team has a chance to win, but the nights where I don't pitch well, I can't even keep it close enough to let the team compete and have chance. That's the worst part of it, the bad nights, we don't even have a chance."
Chisenhall is making the transition to outfield look better and better as this season winds down. The former third baseman made an amazing catch in right field in the sixth inning of game two yesterday, chasing down a Rajai Davis smash at the end of the track. Statcast gave Chisenhall a route efficiency of 97 percent on the play and measured him covering 73.9 feet on the play. Impressive stuff indeed.
Here's the highlight:
Around the League
The Astros got to Huston Street late on Sunday to sneak away with a huge 5-3 win over the Angels. Houston currently holds a 1.5 game lead in the American League West.
Rich Hill was fantastic yesterday for the Red Sox, throwing seven shutout innings and striking out ten in Boston's 2-0 victory.
The Nationals wretched season continues. Harper, however, isn't expected to miss substantial time.
