The day of Thursday, August 2 in Major League Baseball left several interesting stories and the Dominican Republic took the cameras in several aspects despite the fact that the day only had thirteen games.
The highlight of the Dominicans yesterday was the performance of Ramon Laureano, the Oakland center fielder went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and four RBIs including a home run. This was Laureano’s twelfth home run and he reached 27 RBIs with an average of .227 in 76 games.
The Athletics won eight runs for seven in this game and without a doubt the work of the number 22 and central patrolman was fundamental. On the part of the Los Angeles Angels, the defeated Magnerius Sierra had action, but it was totally irrelevant. Sierra only batted in one at-bat and missed the same
Two other Quisqueyans who stood out were those of the Toronto Blue Jays, Teoscar Hernandez y Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Both homered in their squad’s nine-run victory over the Minnesota Twins.
Hernández dispatched his only hit in five at-bats in the sixth inning, with this home run he has 16 this season.
For his part, Vladdy Guerrero disappeared the ball in the eighth chapter and took two players ahead. In five shifts he had two hits and reached the figure of 22 home runs in the campaign.
rafael devers in the loss of Boston vs. Kansas City he was the best of his squad. In the same first inning he put his team ahead with a single to left to bring two teammates to the rubber. Although he later went empty for the next two turns, he raised his RBI stat and now he’s only one out of 60.
by pitchers Johnny Cueto he had an enviable performance despite the fact that his team did not accompany him and therefore suffered defeat. In eight full innings he allowed eleven hits, only three runs and struck out four batters. Cueto racked up his fifth loss and has an excellent 2.91 ERA in 15 games and 96 pitched innings.
