a spirited reminder of his days - elaine95 - 01-31-2019

Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesFollowing a full Friday of postseason MLBaction http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/adrian-peterson-jersey , the American League takes center stage for a pair of American League Division Series Game 2 showdowns.The Houston Astros commenced their title defense with four long balls and another Justin Verlander gem to take an early lead over the Cleveland Indians. Both division champions have another ace in tow for the second bout at Minute Maid Park.Reigniting their storied rivalry in October, the Boston Red Sox pegged J.A. Happ for five runs before the New York Yankees could hand a lead to their dominant bullpen. After escaping with a 5-4 triumph, they will rely on David Price to reverse his playoff struggles against a rival that has routinely given him trouble.With tons of star power on display, let's break down each of Saturday's pivotal Game 2 matchups.MLB Playoff BracketALDS: Houston Astros 1, Cleveland Indians 0ALDS: Boston Red Sox 1, New York Yankees 0NLDS: Milwaukee Brewers 2, Colorado Rockies 0NLDS: Los Angeles Dodgers 2, Atlanta Braves 0 ALDS Schedule: Saturday, Oct. 6Cleveland Indians at Houston Astros: 4:37 p.m. ET on TBNew York Yankees at Boston Red Sox: 8:15 p.m. ET on TBSLive Stream:TBS Watch Live Cleveland Indians vs. Houston AstrosThe Cleveland Indians will attempt to even the series behind Carlos Carrasco.Brian Davidson/Getty ImagesGame 1's battle between former AL Cy Young Award winners went far better for Verlander than Corey Kluber, who ceded home runs to Alex Bregman, George Springer, Martin Maldonado and Jose Altuve in a 7-2 loss.Springer stayed hot on the grand stage by depositing his eighth dinger in 25 career postseason bouts:MLB Stat of the Day MLBStatoftheDayGeorge Springer has hit a dinger in FIVE STRAIGHT #postseason games. That ties him with former Astro carlosbeltran15 for 2nd-longest streak in MLB history. FDyFAuaDRaThe onerous task of silencing Houston's young studs now falls to Carlos Carrasco. After tossing 5.2 scoreless frames in last year's 1-0 ALDS loss to the Yankees, Cleveland's overlooked ace netted a 3.38 ERA and career-high 231 strikeouts this season.He will face one of the few teams able to deploy another elite hurler. In his first season with the Astros Authentic D.J. Swearinger SR Jersey , Gerrit Cole posted a 2.88 ERA and 276 strikeouts, the AL's second-highest clip behind Houston's Game 1 victor.Sports Info Solutions SportsInfo_SISLargest Increase in Strikeout Rate - 2017 to 2018Gerrit Cole 11.2 percentage ptsBlake Snell 9.8Patrick Corbin9.2Justin Verlander 9.0Largest declineCorey Kluber -7.7Clayton Kershaw -5.9In addition to de-emphasizing a sinker that yielded a 132 weighted runs created plus (wRC+) last season, the strikeout percentage on Cole's four-seam fastball soared from 24.5 to 32.8 percent. Per David Barron of the Houston Chronicle, the 28-year-old righty credited the Astros for unlocking his ace ceiling."They're really forward-thinking," Cole said. "They have a system analytically that's really advanced and is designed ... for the player to better themselves. And then A.J. [Hinch] plays his hand accordingly on how he wants to design the lineup or the defense and whatnot."It won't be easy to score off Cole, but Cleveland still needs an early lead. Although the strength of 2016's World Series run, the bullpen betrayed the AL Central champions by allowing a 4.60 ERA this season.On Friday, the Astros tacked on three insurance runs鈥攖wo against Cody Allen鈥攁t the backsliding unit's expense.The Astros, on the other hand, are so flush with bullpen options that Joe Smith, Brad Peacock and Chris Devenski didn't even make the ALDS roster.This advantage鈥攁nd Houston's superfluous power鈥攚ill make all the difference in a well-pitched game from Cole and Carrasco.Prediction: Astros 4, Indians 3New York Yankees vs. Boston Red SoxMasahiro Tanaka will look to replicate last years postseason success.Jim McIsaac/Getty ImagesRemember Cleveland's 1-0 loss started by Carrasco last year? Masahiro Tanaka tossed seven shutout innings on the other end of the pitchers' duel.It was the first of three sensational playoff turns for the righty, who yielded 13 baserunners (10 hits and three walks) and two runs through 20 frames. For those who justifiably dismiss October as old news D.J. Swearinger SR Jersey Elite , his 2.85 second-half ERA offers a more recent dose of success.Tanaka is nearly unhittable when effectively commanding a devastatingslider that flummoxed opponents to a .173/.227/.318 slash line and 27.4 strikeout percentage this season. Yet he also surrendered a 6.26 ERA in four starts against the Red Sox, who hit sliders better than any team in baseball.Despite Tanaka's 2018 struggles against the potent AL East rival, viewers will hear far more about Price's well-documented difficulties combatting the Bronx Bombers.Price has stumbled to a 4.90 ERA in 250 career innings against his long-term adversary. Although this marks the former AL Cy Young Award winner's ninth playoff appearance for a fourth AL squad, he has yet to encounter the Yankees in the postseason.Talk of his overall October shortcomings will also resurface if he falters. He lowered hiscareer playoff ERA to 5.08 by tossing 6.2 innings from the bullpen in last year's ALDS.Price is also rolling into October with a 2.25 ERA after the All-Star break. And at least the game takes place at Fenway Park, where he posted a 2.98 ERA.Christopher Smith SmittyOnMLBDavid Price has given up 16 homers against the Yankees as a member of the Red Sox. 13 have come at Yankee Stadium, only 3 at Fenway Park.Yet the Yankees belted an MLB-high 82 long balls against southpaws during the season while stamping the second-best wRC+ (115) behind the Astros. Boston ranked second in wRC+ (116)versus righties, so don't be surprised if either or both starters are knocked out early.A battle of bullpens would favor the Yankees, and manager Aaron Boone should not hesitate to open the reliever floodgates. Pounded for a 7.91 ERA the third time through the order, Tanaka earned a 2.61 ERA in 120.2 previous innings.New York's starter just needs to hold the fort down for four or five frames before Boone unleashes his late-inning power pitchers on Boston.Prediction: Yankees 6, Red Sox 4 Note: All advanced stats are courtesy of FanGraphsunless otherwise noted. NEW YORK (AP) — Julio Teheran delivered a final pitch, watched the shortstop drift back to make a nice catch and walked off the mound clapping his right hand and glove together.After the game, Braves manager Brian Snitker applauded Teheran, too.Teheran looked sharp in his last audition to become part of Atlanta’s playoff rotation http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/d.j.-swearinger-jersey , throwing two-hit ball for six innings Thursday night in a 4-1 loss to the New York Mets.“That’s the way I wanted to finish the regular season,” Teheran said.The NL East champion Braves didn’t start first baseman Freddie Freeman and center fielder Ender Inciarte, and they were minus injured shortstop Dansby Swanson for the second straight game.Teheran (9-9) allowed one run, struck out five and walked two, and trailed 1-0 when he exited. The start came exactly a week before the Braves are set to begin the postseason against the NL West champs, either Colorado or the Los Angeles Dodgers.In the race for home-field advantage in that matchup, Atlanta and Colorado are 89-70 and the Dodgers are 88-71; the Braves don’t own either tiebreaker, having lost the head-to-head season series against both clubs.Teheran won just one of his last 10 outings, but Snitker observed, “he’s pitched better than this record.”Plus this: Opponents hit only .196 against him, besting Greg Maddux (.197 in 1995) for the lowest mark in franchise history, the Braves said. All-Star Mike Foltynewicz could top him — he’s at .198 going into Friday night’s start at Philadelphia.The 27-year-old Teheran started for the Braves the previous time they made the playoffs in 2013 and has long been a key piece of their staff, but his place this October is uncertain. He’s been inconsistent at times Steven Wright Jersey , albeit more steady down the stretch.Snitker hasn’t said who will pitch in the playoffs. Foltynewicz, Kevin Gausman and Anibal Sanchez are considered likely to lock down the first three starts in the best-of-five NL Division Series, perhaps leaving Teheran and Sean Newcomb and maybe even rookie Touki Toussaint to compete for the fourth spot.“I got in the back of my mind what I’m thinking,” Snitker said, without revealing any details.“This isn’t tryout camp,” he said, adding, “I think the total body of work speaks for itself.”Teheran gave up a leadoff double to Brandon Nimmo in the first and a home run to Kevin Plawecki in the third.Pinch-hitter Devin Mesoraco connected for a three-run homer off Brad Brach in the seventh that made it 4-0.Ronald Acuna Jr. hit an RBI single in the eighth.The Braves beat New York in the opener of this three-game series for their sixth straight win. But Mets starters Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom and Jason Vargas combined for 21 scoreless innings in the set, and New York finished 6-13 against Atlanta this year.Vargas (7-9) needed just 77 pitches for seven shutout innings in his best start of the year.“Good job,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. “He finished the season strong for us.”Vargas gave up three hits, walked none and struck out six, pitching in light rain in the later innings. The 35-year-old lefty tied for the major league lead with 18 wins last season with Kansas City but struggled early after signing a $16 million http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-craig-kimbrel-jersey , two-year deal with the Mets.Vargas went 5-1 with a 2.62 ERA in his last eight starts.Robert Gsellman worked the ninth for his 13th save. He struck out Freeman with two on to end it.WRIGHT YOU AREMets third baseman David Wright didn’t play despite scattered chants of “We want David!” Activated this week, he hasn’t played in the majors since May 2016 because of neck, back and shoulder injuries. The Mets have planned for him to start Saturday night at Citi Field against Miami.The 35-year-old team captain left a spirited reminder of his days in the clubhouse before the game. A bottle of tequila was put in each teammate’s locker, with his No. 5 and the message, “Thanks for the memories.”TRAINER’S ROOMBraves: No update on Swanson, diagnosed this week with a partially torn ligament in his left hand. A progress report is possible over the weekend. Swanson’s status remains uncertain for Atlanta’s playoff opener next Thursday. Charlie Culberson again took Swanson’s place.UP NEXTBraves: Foltynewicz (12-10, 2.88 ERA) pitches at Citizens Bank Park to open the final series of the regular season. Last Saturday, he took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning against the Phillies in the division clincher.Mets: RHP Corey Oswalt (3-3, 6.08) starts at home vs. RHP Jose Urena (8-12, 4.07) and the Marlins.
