The Mariners swept the Rangers this week, but are in the process of getting swept by that other team from the Lone Star State, the Astros. Seattle will start Tyler Anderson (6-8, ERA 4.10) on Sunday. Anderson has been stingy, allowing a total of two runs over his last two starts (both vs. the Rangers) covering 11 ²/₃ innings.
Tyler hasn’t been tagged with a loss in his last seven starts. He will have a difficult time keeping the streak alive. The Astros have put up 30 runs (at least that was the latest tally at edition) in their last three games. Houston’s Framber Valdez (8-4, ERA 3.16) took a loss at Kansas City, giving up nine hits over 6 ²/₃ after a dominating performance against the Rockies. Play 20 on the ’Stros.
The Yankees manhandled Kenta Maeda and the Twinkies 7-1. Gerrit Cole, sharp, tossing six shutout innings. Maeda was dull, allowing five runs over 4 ¹/₃ . Loss has us at -765 hrbeks.
