Ross Stripling got past the San Diego Padres despite not having his best stuff and now can look forward to his first All-Star Game.
And his defending NL champion Los Angeles Dodgers grabbed sole possession of first place in the NL West for the first time this season, by a half-game over the Arizona Diamondbacks, after beating San Diego 3-2 on Thursday night.
The Dodgers spent much of April and May in fourth place. They were tied for first on https://www.cheapjerseysstoreus.com/ July 5, an off day.
Stripling said it’ll be more important if the Dodgers are still in first place on Sunday.
If we can be in first place in three days cheap jerseys heading into the All-Star break, that’s a good feeling, he said. Obviously the Diamondbacks have put a good season together, but we’ve been grinding along with them and able to hold our heads and get into first place is cool.
After going 11-11 with Texas last season, Cashner is 2-9 with a 4.56 ERA and is 0-4 in eight starts since May 21. He gave up five runs in 6⅓ innings against the Yankees on Tuesday after retiring the first 13 batters.
Baltimore recalled right-hander Yefry Ramirez from Triple-A Norfolk. The rookie could start in Cashner’s place on Sunday against Texas.
The Twins hustled through that third inning. Brian Dozier singled and took second on a wild pitch. Then as he attempted to steal third, Grossman swung at a high pitch for an awkward-but-effective hit-and-run. Polanco later stole third base, too, though he was ultimately stranded.
You’ve got to try to create against him when you get a chance, Molitor said.
Gibson took it from there, continuing his renaissance with his longest start on the 2018 ledger. He dropped his ERA to 3.42, more than a full run lower than his career mark. He also has by far the best strikeout rate of his career, just short of an average of one per inning.
