The Yanks have been struggling all season to find someone who could man the keystone while contributing...

Boxscore Breakdown #149: It was fun while it lasted – Astros 6, Angels 1

The winning streak is no more. The Angels were on one of the most impressive and dominant rolls of the 2014 season, so it is only fitting that they end the streak by laying a total egg. It isn’t a big deal, they were going to lose eventually, but I don’t think anyone saw it ending with Dallas Keuchel just laying waste to them. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Run Expectancy...
