Game 163. Sorry, Game 1… Let’s start with the good news. Encouraging night at the plate for Mark Teixeira, and lights out stuff from Dellin Betances and Vidal Nuno in relief. Betances hit 99mph on the gun, with 2 Ks. Nuno stuck out the side.
The not so good news in a tough game to watch : At the outset the defense was a mess, and no one could figure out Houston’s starter Cy Young Scott Feldman, whose fastball topped out around 88mph. Carlos Beltran ruined his no-hit bid with a single in the 4th.
CC Sabathia found somewhat of a groove by the 3rd, but the damage was already done. Here’s a recap. And here’s the box score.
Kuroda-san needs to restore order tomorrow!
