Bauer was awesome in his previous outing as he put in his fifth consecutive quality start against the Texas Rangers. He traveled 6.2 innings giving up two earned off of four hits while striking out 11 and walking three. It was his first double-digit strikeout game of the year.
The former first rounder is having a career year as he owns a solid 10.26 K/9 compared to a 3.57 BB/9, while he has only given up three home runs in six starts. His 84.5% LOB% is bound to regress, but his 2.45 ERA is sure looking pretty right now.
Cleveland has not been fooling around in the last week despite only winning four of their last eight in that time. Their lineup has been abusing the baseball in that span as they are slashing .318/.380/.568 to go with a ridiculous 38 extra-base hits and 60 RBI.
New York Yankees
It was a nice bounce-back performance for Gray against the Houston Astros despite taking the loss. He went six innings giving up two earned off of four hits while striking out seven and walking four.
In his three previous outings before this one, Gray had given up 14 earned runs to go along with a 7:11 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 11 innings of work. With his struggles to induce strikeouts and his high walk rate mixed with a very unlucky .344 BABIP, you just new a string of bad starts was on the horizon, but it’s good to see him bounce back in his last start.
New York’s pitching has been carrying them through the last week as they’ve managed to win six of their seven contests. Their lineup has cooled off as they are only slashing .217/.278/.358 in that span while they have hit 23 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.
