Andrew Albers lasted just two innings Tuesday, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks in a loss to the Indians.
Albers' first start in the majors since 2013 didn't go very well, as the Twins handed him a 2-0 lead and then a 4-1 lead and he coughed them both up. The Twins need to have Jose Berrios and Tyler Duffey learn at the big league level, but they're the Twins, so they'll probably give Albers another shot on Sunday versus the White Sox.
Evan Gattis hit his 22nd home run of the year in Tuesday's win over the A's.
Gattis hit the solo blast off A's starter Kendall Graveman in the seventh inning. It was his only hit in three at-bats. It's shaping up to be another typical year-end stat line for the 30-year-old, as his 22 homers and 55 RBI are paired with a .246/.312/.484 line in 101 games. His catcher eligibility makes it all worth it, though.
Kendall Graveman allowed three runs over seven innings in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.
Graveman gave up only four hits while walking one in his seven innings of work, but two of those hits were solo homers. That, coupled with a good start from Astros righty Collin McHugh, stuck Graveman with his ninth loss of the season. Even so, it was another good turn from the 25-year-old, who now has a 3.96 ERA in 26 starts after a brutal beginning to the year. Graveman will look to get back in the win column Monday against the Angels.
Andrew Miller struck out two in a scoreless inning to record his 12th save of the season Tuesday in a win over the Twins.
It was Miller getting the save chance over Cody Allen in this one, and things started off poorly when Logan Schafer lead off the ninth with an infield single. Miller then rebounded with a strikeout, lineout and flyout to nail down the one-run win. Out of the Tribe's last four saves, Miller and Allen have two apiece as Terry Francona continues to play matchups.
Tuesday night's game between the Rockies and Dodgers was postponed due to rain in Denver.
The game will be made up with a split doubleheader on Wednesday. Tyler Anderson was scheduled to pitch for the host Rockies on Tuesday night at Coors Field and it was supposed to be Rich Hill making his second start for the visiting Dodgers. Anderson will handle the early game for the Rockies on Wednesday and Hill is going to pitch the later game for Los Angeles.
