Drew Hutchison tossed seven shutout innings Friday allowing six hits, no walks, and with three strikeouts in the 4-0 road win over the Orioles.
Hutchison continued his pattern of success on the road as he improved to 4-1 with a 1.79 ERA in nine starts away from the Rogers Centere compared to polar opposite results at home where he is 1-3 with an outlandish 8.72 ERA. Fortunately for his fantasy owners Hutchison's next start will be on the road on Wednesday, although that could still be a little bit debatable as it will be in hitter friendly Yankee Stadium, but what may be more concerning is that the Yankees are a predominantly left-handed hitting team so proceed at your own risk.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
