Astros punch out Tigers 6-3. Hold off late rally

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports Cole dominates. Bregman smashes 31st HR. Perhaps one might hope that when the best team in baseball plays the worst team in baseball, that the best team would win every game in a four game series. Well, the Astros did lose a game, and although a sweep seemed tantalizingly close, as Meatloaf would say, three out four ain’t bad. Gerrit Cole was as outright filthy dominant tonight as Justin Verlander was last night, except no home runs. No runs, period. In seven innings Cole allowed only two hits, one walk, and fanned twelve. Having missed two starts due to...

Scoreboard overshadows Ariel Jurado's complete game as Rangers drop series-opener vs. White Sox

CHICAGO - On the one hand, Ariel Jurado pitched his first career complete game and did something a Ranger hadn’t done since Cliff Lee.On the other: What Cliff Lee did was allow six runs in a complete game.What Jurado most offered the Rangers Thursday in a 6-1 loss to Chicago was a warm body to soak up innings on a night when the bullpen desperately needed rest. The combination of an adequate Jurado and a somnambulant offense did just the trick. It was the first time since Lee’s first start after the Rangers acquired him in 2010 that a Ranger pitcher allowed six or more runs in a complete...

Cubs 1, Giants 0: Kyle Hendricks puts another masterpiece on the board

Photo by Quinn Harris/ After a slugfest Wednesday night, pitching dominated Thursday afternoon. Because baseball, of course. Wednesday night, the Cubs and Giants combined for seven home runs and 23 runs in a game where the lead changed four times. So of course, Thursday afternoon featured zero home runs and a single run that scored after an error and a double play might have ended that inning, with the Cubs coming out on top 1-0, sweeping the three-game series and moving their record at Wrigley Field to an amazing 44-19 (.698). Both Kyle Hendricks and former Cub Jeff Samardzija were...

NYY News: Probably shouldn’t have passed on Patrick

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Cashman probably should have just paid Corbin last winter; Boone’s sticking with Happ in the rotation; Yanks have been awful in Oakland of late; Debating if Chapman is the best southpaw reliever ever. NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: While J,A. Happ has been a disaster this season, Patrick Corbin has flourished. In fact, he has been flat-out dominant over the past few months. While Happ was getting clobbered in Oakland, Corbin was tossing eight scoreless innings against the Pirates. Once again, it brought up the opportunity to beg the question: should the Yanks have just...

Chris Flexen recalled from Syracuse, Ruben Tejada designated for assignment

Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports Flexen recalled to supplement a bullpen stretched out after Marcus Stroman’s early departure Wednesday. Prior to Thursday night’s series finale against the Cleveland Indians, the Mets recalled right-handed pitcher Chris Flexen from AAA Syracuse. Rather than another pitcher, the Mets designated infielder Ruben Tejada for assignment to clear room on the 25-man roster. In eight appearances—including one start—earlier this season, Flexen pitched 13 innings for the Mets, recording three losses while pitching to a 6.92 ERA (5.67 FIP), with an unsightly 13...

Cardinals 6, Rockies 5: Bullpen can’t hold the lead—again

Photo by Michael B. Thomas/ The Rockies only had one hit after a Nolan home run gave them a 5-2 lead. The Rockies were unable to hold a lead and unable to come back after giving up that lead, losing 6-5 to the Cardinals on Thursday after the start was delayed 52 minutes by rain. Up 5-2 in the sixth, Rockies pitchers gave up two-run home runs in back to back innings to give the Cardinals the lead. That, and the Rockies couldn’t manage a hit after the sixth inning, so any comeback was DOA. The Rockies are now 58-70. Home Run Derby The Cardinals scored in the fourth, sixth, and seventh...
