Jake Peavy gave up three runs, six hits, and one walk while punching out nine over seven innings in the loss to the Astros Saturday.
The veteran had to be peeved he couldn't muster at least a no-decision after striking out a season-high nine batters. Instead, he fell to 1-8 in on the year after losing his career-worst eighth straight. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
