|Blake Snell and the surging Tampa Bay Rays are having success against some of the major’s best teams. Snell struck out 10 Robert Griffin III Jersey , reliever Diego Castillo fanned Jose Altuve in a key spot and the Rays wrapped up an impressive homestand by beating the Houston Astros 3-2 Sunday.
The Rays went 8-1 at Tropicana Field, taking three of four from the World Series champion Astros, sweeping three from the New York Yankees and winning both games against Washington. Tampa Bay set a team record by allowing no more than two runs in its sixth straight game.
”Everybody’s doing their part,” Snell said.
Snell tied Hall of Famer Walter Johnson (1914) with his 11th consecutive home start allowing one or fewer earned runs for the longest stretch in the AL since 1913, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
”He’s pitched like an All-Star,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. ”We knew we had a chance to have a special series and really special homestand, and I think he capped it off.”
Matt Duffy hit a two-out, two-run single in the seventh inning that put the Rays ahead 2-1 and Mallex Smith homered in the eighth.
Evan Gattis homered twice for Houston. The Astros went 0 for 14 during the series with runners in scoring position.
”We didn’t do enough to win the game or win the series.” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.
Snell (11-4) allowed one run and four hits in 7 1/3 innings. The lefty has given up five earned runs over 51 2/3 innings (0.87 ERA) at home this season.
Castillo replaced Snell with the bases loaded in the eighth with the Rays leading by a run. Castillo struck out Altuve in a 10-pitch at-bat and got a grounder from Yuli Gurriel to protect the lead.
Sergio Romo got his eighth save despite allowing Gattis’ homer in the ninth.
Charlie Morton (10-2) struck out 11 in 6 2/3 innings. The Astros led 1-0 when he left with runners at first and second, and Duffy greeted Chris Devenski with a bloop single down the right-field line. Joey Wendle scored from first base when right fielder Josh Reddick hesitated before throwing the ball back to the infield.
”I just kind of froze Jalyn Holmes Jersey ,” Reddick said. ”There’s no excuse for screwing that up. I’ve got to get the ball in, and even if I throw it home early, we’re still playing the ball game right now.”
Gattis, who had eight homers and 30 RBIs in June, put the Astros up 1-0 on his seventh-inning drive.
Jake Marisnick had a potential run-scoring extra-base hit tracked down in deep center by Smith with two outs in the fifth.
Smith’s homer was his first since last July 21, ending a 356 at-bat drought.
”I’m not worried about hitting home runs,” the speedy Smith said with a smile. ”I like to steal bases. Can’t steal bases when you hit homers.”
Astros: Gurriel returned after three days on the paternity list. . Reliever Joe Smith (right elbow soreness) could be back Tuesday.
Rays: CF Kevin Kiermaier was rested after making two diving catches Saturday. He dropped to 0 for 9, including eight strikeouts, against Morton by going down swinging as a pinch-hitter in the seventh.
Astros RF George Springer was out of the lineup for the second time in three days after tumbling into the stands chasing a foul ball Saturday. Hinch said Springer is ”beat up a little bit.” Springer Justin Bethel Jersey , mired in a 3-for-44 slide, was a pinch-runner in the ninth.
The Rays could move veteran players like RHPs Nathan Eovaldi and Chris Archer, and C Wilson Ramos before the non-waiver trade deadline. Also attracting interest is Tampa Bay’s bullpen. ”I imagine our front office will do what they always do, and that’s look to do what’s best for the organization going forward,” Cash said.
The Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals are among the teams with scouts in attendance recently.
Astros: LHP Dallas Keuchel (4-8) will go against Texas RHP Austin Bibens-Dirx (1-1) Tuesday night.
Rays: Eovaldi (2-3) faces Miami LHP Wei-Yin Chen (2-5) Monday night.
The Panthers players and coaches were having an OTA in Charlotte Tuesday, while just down the road in Atlanta, they were being sold to David Tepper.
And while many of the longer-serving players and coaches had close relationships with previous owner Jerry Richardson, the sense of being ready to move on was clear, after months of investigation into Richardson’s workplace misconduct (which triggered the sale).
Via Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer Austin Hooper Jersey , the Panthers seemed ready to move on.
“He’s got a sense and feel for football,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said of Tepper. “He’s been around it. He owned a small percentage of the Steelers. So he’s got a feel. It was good, and I know eventually we’ll sit down and talk football and talk about this team. . . .
“We really haven’t been able to get down to the details yet, but all in due time. I think it’ll be really good, he really seemed like a football guy.”
Rivera met Tepper and made a presentation about the team’s football side during his site visit earlier this spring.
But Rivera was also a Richardson supporter, and even broke down the team in the name of the disgraced owner, after the Sports Illustrated bombshell which detailed his sexual and racial harassment of employees.
Tight end Greg Olsen was also close with the previous owner, who helped the Olsen family through their son’s heart condition. But even he saw the value of clear air in front of them.
“I’m sure a lot of people are just ready for some closure, just ready for that transition to start Coby Fleener Jersey , and I guess today is the start of that,” Olsen. said “This transition has been inevitable for a little while, since it was announced that the team would be sold.
“I just think for a lot of people in the building, players, (can) just put all of this to rest. Move forward in the new direction that the team is going with.”
The league’s investigation continues since they want to make sure the issues didn’t extend beyond the owner, but for the most part, the Panthers were able to turn a page yesterday.
