For now, that's going to be where the feel-good story of Harrison's return ends. The left-hander allowed six runs in his first start for the Rangers and the offense missed out on chances to bail him out as the Arizona Diamondbacks...

Boxscore Breakdown Game #6: Quit pulling my Weave – Astros 7, Angels 4

We should’ve known better than to think the Angels could sweep the mighty Astros or have their ace (if that is still what you want to call him) actually pitch well against one of the worst lineups in baseball. Run Expectancy Rundown Kole Calhoun has really had some bad RE24 performances in this series. At the same time, I don’t know how much you can punish him when he saw 28...

Yesterday the Padres traded Anthony Bass to the Houston Astros for the rights to the first pick in today’s Rule 5 Draft.
