Kyle Gibson came through with another great seven innings on Monday to help us hit the under. The Twins lost 4–1 because they couldn’t solve Dallas Keuchel, who threw six innings without allowing an earned run.
Jake Odorizzi hasn’t had his finest year; it hasn’t been a disaster, either but he’s thrown over 140 innings for the fifth straight season, which is worth something. He won’t reach 200 but he may get to 187, which would be a career-high.
The win on Monday made it three in a row for the the ‘Stros, who kept pace with the A’s, who beat the Yankees on Monday. They remain 2.5 games up on Oakland.
Framber Valdez has made two starts and one appearance out of the bullpen and he’s been great on the whole. He got the win out of the ‘pen and split his two starts, despite giving up just one run in each.
Twenty-Four years old out of the DR, Valdez has given up six hits and two runs in over fourteen innings pitched so far. He’s only struck out ten and walked seven, though. That doesn’t fill me with confidence ahead of the playoffs but he’s a name to keep an eye on as we traverse September.
