64-86 - Lineup leaves Sampson high and dry again, Rangers fall 3-0

Jacob deGrom’s stellar season: Start #30

The righty kept his streak alive against a potent offense. Jacob deGrom’s thirtieth start came against a Red Sox team that is averaging over five runs per game, which is the best in the majors, and they are toward the top or at the top is almost all the other offensive categories. They are also one of the toughest teams to strike out and had a MVP candidate in the lineup. This game also featured a premier pitching match-up between two Cy Young contenders and the ERA leaders in their respective leagues. Chris Sale and Jacob deGrom of course squared off in college and they were finally...
