TODAY'S STARTING PITCHERS:
Blake Snell's command abandoned him once again in his last start as he walked a season high five batters before departing with two outs in the fifth inning. Snell has now pitched just over 11 innings over his past three starts. In his last start, Snell allowed just two runs, despite the five walks, while he gave up four hits, and he also picked up three strikeouts.
Dallas Keuchel Scouting Report:
It's been a down year for Keuchel. He's still been pretty good, but now his Cy Young caliber self of recent seasons. A lot like Chris Archer, Kecuhel suffered a miserable start to the season, but since the start of June, he has reversed that trend. During his last start, Keuchel allowed two runs on five hits, one home run, while he walked one and struck out seven over eight innings pitched on the 21st against the Orioles in Baltimore.
