UPDATES & NEWS
Giancarlo Stanton had himself a night, smacking two home runs while driving in three RBI and a pair of runs scored in the Marlins 6-5 win over the Cardinals on Monday.
Stanton pummeled Shelby Miller in the first and third inning of the ballgame. They were home runs number 31 and 32 of the season. The massive effort pushes his season line to .292/.393/.568 with the aforementioned 32 home runs overlooked 10 stolen bases. He's having the massive season we've been waiting for and he's a surefire first round pick in next year's drafts. ANALYST:
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.
