Ramos drove in four runs in the first two innings against Verlander and the Tampa Bay Rays went on to a 5-2 win over the Astros on Saturday.
”I wasn’t sharp http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-justice-hill-jersey , but also I didn’t have luck on my side,” Verlander said. ”I made an adjustment during the third inning that I thought was good, but it was too little too late.”
Verlander (9-4) gave up the most runs (5) and hits (9) of any of his 23 starts since his trade to Houston late last summer. He struck out eight in a season-low five innings after coming in with a major league-leading 1.82 ERA – though it was 4.34 in six June starts. The Astros have lost his last three starts.
Matt Duffy finished with three hits, including two in the first two innings, to help the Rays win for the seventh time in eight tames to move to .500 (41-41) for the first time since June 1.
”I gave up three hard-hit balls, all to the same guy. The rest of `em, nobody hit the ball hard,” Verlander said.
Ramos got the Rays on the scoreboard with a two-run double in the first Ben Powers Jersey , and made it 5-0 with a two-run single in the second. Those two at bats summarized Verlander’s day.
”The first at bat, I put him in a 3-1 situation where, bases loaded, he knows a heater’s coming, and he hit it off the wall. So that’s my fault,” Verlander said. ”His next bat I got a ground ball up the middle on a slider, which is kind of what you’re looking for. But it found a hole.”
Tampa Bay has held opponents to two runs or fewer in five straight games for only the second time in franchise history.
”The way these guys are throwing right now, we’re tough to beat http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-iman-marshall-jersey ,” said Kevin Kiermaier, who scored in each of the first two innings.
Alex Bregman got the Astros on the board with a two-run homer in the sixth off Vidal Nuno. It was Bregman’s 16th home run and his fifth in six games.
”They’ve been throwing the ball well over there, and we haven’t really been able to put anything together,” Bregman said. ”Verlander was a little unfortunate today with some of the weak contact that went for hits, but we’ve got to do a better job of putting up runs for him.
Nuno (2-0) got the win after pitching 4 2/3 innings of relief, giving up two runs and four hits while striking out four. Sergio Romo pitched ninth for his seventh save in 11 opportunities.
Ryne Stanek pitched the first inning for Tampa Bay, giving up a single to Jose Altuve, Houston’s only hit in the first four innings.
Adeiny Hechavarria made a fielding error on George Springer’s grounder in the top of the sixth just before Bregman’s homer. It ended a streak of 94 games and 319 chances in which the Rays’ shortstop had not committed a miscue. It was the longest errorless streak in franchise history for a shortstop. Hechavarria’s last error had come on July 30 Trace McSorley Jersey , 2017 at Yankee Stadium.

When the new Collective Bargaining agreement was agreed upon in 2011, NFL players were guaranteed to receive at least 47% of revenue accrued over the previous season. Teams are also required to have spent 89% of their cap by the 2017 season. Combine these two figures with the fact that teams are allowed to carry over their unused cap-space from the previous season, it is inevitable that teams will be throwing an unnecessary amount of cash to less-than-deserving players.Look across the league at many big-name players and you will see mediocre numbers with a contract that reflects past accomplishments or jersey sales more than their on-field performance. Teams nowadays are also more willing to overpay for a player that has thrived in a system, in hopes of that player turning around their franchise. This theory has seldom turned out for NFL GM’s. It is a startling trend in the NFL that appears to be gaining steam rather than dying out.Though this isn’t always the GM’s fault. It is the GM’s job to scout good talent, encourage players to leave the franchise they have had success at, to join your team in hopes of increasing their chance at winning. Sometimes that player gets lazy and less interested in risking their body after earning his big payday Ed Oliver Jersey , and sometimes that player has simply peaked and is now watching their game decrease.As the NFL’s popularity grows every year, the salary cap will in-turn increase, resulting in teams being more likely to throw that extra cash at under-deserving players. Here is a look at 15 players that have been granted a contract beyond what their worth is as a player.*All stats were taken from Pro-Football-Reference.com.
