Dallas Keuchel pitched a complete-game against the Yankees on Thursday, but took the loss after allowing three runs on seven hits with no walks and five strikeouts.
Keuchel was out dueled by Brandon McCarthy who threw a complete game shutout. Keuchel continues his career year and despite the loss he is now 10-9 with a 3.12 ERA. His next start will come at home against the A's who he pitched a complete game against back on July 30th allowing one earned run on four hits while striking out five.ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
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
