Troy Tulowitzki goes 2-for-3 with two home runs, two walks, four RBI, and two runs scored in Monday's 8-2 victory over the Rangers.
Tulo is coming off NL Offensive Player of the Month honors and looks like he wants to earn that award for a second consecutive month as he has not skipped a beat as he continues to lead the Majors in multiple categories including average (.400), on-base percentage (.500), slugging (.730), and OPS (1.230) after Monday's game.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Nathan Eovaldi allowed four runs on seven hits with no walks and six strikeouts against the Mets on Sunday.
Eovaldi failed to build off his last outing and let the Mets get to him early, yielding four runs through the first three innings. Luckily the bats bailed him out and he was able to walk away with the no-decision after getting yanked in the fifth inning, having thrown 87 pitches (59 strikes). While Eovaldi showed some nice promise when he was with the Marlins, the move to the American League, the AL East and hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium has siphoned out what promise he actually had left. Being a fly ball pitcher in this environment does no bode well for strong ratios. He’ll face the Red Sox in Fenway for his next outing, one you probably want to keep him on the bench for.
