On this Friday, the Houston Astros came from behind to beat the Oakland Athletics 8×3 with the help of the three Cubans in their lineup. For the sidereals, Yulieski Gurriel, Yordan Alvarez Y Aledmys Diaz They had great performances to contribute to the sidereals’ 55th win this season.
You have to start precisely with Gurriel. The initialist seems to revive little by little with the wood. In fact, this time he tripled in five legal at-bats, with two singles, his 24th double and his 25th RBI, the last Astros score on the California night. His average closed the night at .233.
Álvarez also continued his superb offensive display this season, going 1-for-4 with a long double (11) that almost left the park. His biangular served to produce the first hairline of his club and number 60 for him in the year, the first Cuban to reach that figure. He also scored twice, walked one and struck out twice (.311).
Finally, Aledmys is still on fire and this Friday he doubled in five valid chances, with his fifth double, one return to the draw and two strikeouts (.231). In the last four games, he has seven hits in 18 official chances (.389), with three doubles, two homers, four RBIs and three runs scored.
Moving on to the loss suffered by the Chicago White Sox 7 × 5 against the Detroit Tigers, louis robert Y Joseph Abreu They did their best to avoid the whitelegs’ setback, but their effort was not enough.
Robert drove in the first two streaks for the White Sox with his 10th home run of the year, a 449-foot blast in the bottom of the first inning. La Pantera went 2-5, with two RBIs (45), one run scored, one strikeout and his first error of the season (.291). After suffering a small slump, the Cuban centerfielder is batting .302 in his past 10 games, thanks to two doubles and three homers.
In Abreu’s case, Pito extended his streak of games with at least one hit to 13, going 2-5. The man from Cienfuegos reached 22 doubles, scored once and swallowed two chocolates (.292). His string is the best among active strings in the Major Leagues.
Also for Chicago Yoan Moncada he saw action solely on defense, covering third base (.184).
This is how it went for the rest of the Cubans who saw action this Friday in the Major Leagues:
Jose Iglesias (Colorado Rockies) doubled in trio of valid chances, with a single and double (18), in addition to a run scored and one out on a steal attempt (.297). With 999 lifetime hits, Candelita was one of the thousand.
Another one who had a good night is Jose Adolis Garcia (Texas Rangers), tripling four legal times at bat, with his fourth triple included (.252).
For the Tampa Bay Rays, Yandy Diaz He went 1-5, with a double (15), runs scored and two strikeouts (.293). Your partner Randy Arozarena he missed all four legal at-bats he consumed (.255).
Jadiel Hernandez (Washington Nationals), 3-1, with a strikeout (.273). William Heredia (Atlanta Braves) was in right field (.121).
Nestor Cortes Jr. (New York Yankees) pitched just 3 2/3 innings against the Boston Red Sox. The Cuban left-hander allowed eight hits (two home runs), four earned runs, walked two and struck out four (2.74 ERA).
Raisel Iglesias (Los Angeles Angels) had a gray night against the Baltimore Orioles. In 0.2 innings, he allowed four hits, three earned runs, struck out one, threw a wild pitch and recorded his fifth loss of the year (2-5) and his third blown save. His ERA closed the day at 4.50.
