Baseball's back! One game, anyway. Lance Lynn, the best season of his career at age 32, hit 11 and became the first MLB pitcher in 12 wins while the Rangers fired Astros 5-0 on Thursday night. And Alex Bregman has misrepresented the previous quote by John McGraw.
Bregman, before his all-star start, only played shortstop because Carlos Correa was in IL. The hope of Astros did not have to join him, after leaving the game in the third inning after taking Shin-Soo Choo's ball on the chin.
"He blew when I got there," manager Astros A.J. Hinch said, and Bregman needed four stitches to close the wound. The more about is that Bregman appeared disoriented, touching the area around his left ear. Hopefully his jaw is beaten by a blow, but the Astros will be examined thoroughly.
"He will answer everything now," Hinch says. "Whatever happens as you run through the process, the protocol. He'll see every specialist he needs to make sure he's OK."
Bregman is not available to answer questions after the game. Even after the defeat, Astros has seven games ahead of the division. If Bregman needs a little time, he'll have it.
