In the only MOT player action yesterday, Alex Bregman, batting in the leadoff spot, was 0-for-4 with a walk and a run scored as the Houston Astros (45-25) completed a three-game sweep of the host Oakland As with a 7-3 win. In fact, it was the eighth straight win for Houston.
Baltimore Orioles reliever Richard Bleier, who left Wednesday’s game with lat injury, is listed as “day-to-day” (aren’t we all?), but I’m willing to be he’ll go on the disabled list soon.
Gabe Kapler‘s Philadelphia Phillies (35-31) beat the visiting Colorado Rockies, 9-3.
And finally, remember Nate Freiman?
