Astros’ Gerrit Cole, second in AL strikeouts, on bereavement list

Houston Astros starter Gerrit Cole, who is second in the American League with 169 strikeouts, was placed on the bereavement list, the team announced Tuesday.

To fill his roster spot, the Astros recalled outfielder Jake Marisnick from Triple-A Fresno.

The teams finished the game in a quick 2 hours, 18 minutes.

Padres center fielder Manuel Margot made a nice diving catch of Justin Turner’s fly ball cheap nfl jerseys in the seventh and then made a sliding catch of Chris Taylor’s sinking liner to end the eighth.

Dodgers: RHP Kenta Maeda (5-5, 3.24), the scheduled starter for the third game in the four-game series, is 4-3 with a 4.70 ERA in 10 career starts against San Diego.

Padres: Rookie LHP Joey Lucchesi (4-4, 3.27) is 1-1 with a 1.26 ERA in his last three starts.

For the sake of this space, I’ll skip talking about some of the players we talk about weekly. Dakota Hudson, Forrest Whitley, Francisco Mejia and Fernando Tatis Jr. will all be in the nation’s capital and are all represented on the weekly top-10 update.

Today the focus will be on some of the bigger talents that are a little bit farther behind on their road to the show due to age and experience. That said, these are names you want to know going forward because they will be the ones we talk about as early as next spring.

Ross (5-8) took a one-hit shutout into the seventh before it fell apart. Chris Taylor doubled with one out and manager Andy Green came out to check on the big right-hander. Green let Ross stay in, but he allowed Toles’ single on his 101st pitch and was pulled.

Sometimes you execute and they get enough of it, and that’s what happened tonight, Ross said.
