Game Recap: McCullers, Marisnick do the Trick. Shutout, Home Run Beat Rays 1-0.

Astros stop Rays 5 game win streak in Tampa. Somebody had to lose tonight. There is no crying in baseball, and there are no ties. Two red hot teams, the Astros came in to Tampa having won 17 of their last 20 games, the Rays had a 5 game winning streak. The Astros batters have the highest OPS in baseball over the past month, but the Tampa Bay Rays have the stingiest pitching, with a team ERA over the last week at just 1.31. They were even better than that tonight, but Lance McCullers Jr. was better still. On a night when he had all his pitches going with command, and his curve had its old...

Borucki records quality start; no support as Jays fall 7-0

Blue Jays 0 Astros 7 Given the tough assignment of facing the defending World Champions and opposing one of baseball’s better starting pitchers in his Major League debut, Ryan Borucki turned in a solid effort and a quality start. Alas, he still came out on the wrong end as the Blue Jays were almost completely shutdown by Charlie Morton, and the bullpen let a close game turn into a blowout late. For good measure, when that was not enough, Jake Marisnick turned the tables and more or less returned the Grichuk trick from yesterday to first help keep the Jays off the scoreboard and then pad...
