Adolis García knocked in a run and collected two hits, but Texas fell to Los Angeles 5-3. The outfielder is tied for second in MLB with 55 runs batted in and is now hitting .258 on the campaign. The native of Ciego de Ávila, Cuba also sports a .807 OPS.
Yennier Canó continues to be a dominant figure on the mound in relief for the Baltimore Orioles. Last night the right-hander pitched a scoreless inning in the team’s 4-2 win over Toronto. Although he allowed three hits the flamethrower also struck out one and his last seven games has a 1.23 earned run average.
Luis Robert hit his 17th roundtripper of the season, drove in a run and scored a run, but his efforts could not stave off a 5-4 defeat for White Sox at the hands of the Dodgers. The “Black Panther ” as he is called by the Cuban faithful watched his average fall to .269 also has 36 RBIs on the campaign.
These two deserve to be All-Stars.
