Corey Kluber allowed two runs on five hits and four walks while fanning four batters over 5.1 innings against the Red Sox on Sunday.
After a rough stretch, Kluber bounce back nicely on Sunday, but was unable to get back in the win column, settling for a no-decision. He is now sitting 6-4 with a 3.35 ERA and 1.26 WHIP through 15 starts, while holding down a 108:26 K:BB rate. His low walk rate has been one of the main reasons for his early success, but has now walked eight batters over his last three starts, so hopefully he will be able to get his command back on track as he attempts to trend back in the right direction. He will take on the Rick Porcello and the Tigers his next trip to the mound, which is scheduled for Friday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Dallas Cowboys are hold off on placing Tony Romo on Injured Reserve in hopes of still making the playoffs.
Oh Jerry. Look, the most reductive outlook you could possibly have on Dallas' playoff chances is that the Cowboys are only two games out of the division lead. But that's ignoring the fact that they're also tied for the worst record in NFC and just one win better that the two worst teams in the league. If the Cowboys were smart, they'd be taking the perspective that they have a very, very good shot of getting a great draft pick. But it sounds like they're taking an approach that's going to cost them draft slots on the belief that Matt Cassel is leading them to the playoff. Freakin' Jerry. Analysis: Brett Talley
Chandler Parsons is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game.
Parsons has been sitting out in back-to-backs this season and will apparently continue to do so for now. The last time Parsons sat, Dirk, Felton, Williams and Matthews all played over 35 minutes, and no other bench guys saw even 20 minutes in Parsons' absence. So if you're looking for an uptick in usage for any Mavs, you should probably count on the other starters getting the extra work. Analysis: Brett Talley
