Matthews was hit in the face by a line drive while pitching in a http://www.authenticwarriorsstore.com/Jordan_Bell_Jersey Packers charity softball game over the weekend. He fell to the ground after he was hit by the ball off Lucas Patrick’s bat and walked off the field holding his face in his glove before being taken to a nearby emergency room.
Jose Altuve’s two-run homer off reliever Matt Bush gave http://www.officialchicagoblackhawksshop.com/Adidas-Pierre-Pilote-Jersey the Astros their biggest lead in the seventh.
Coming into the game, Hader had struck out 70 batters in 35 innings, including a whopping Authentic Pierre Pilote Jersey 23 lefties in 35 at-bats. Lefties were hitting .057 off him, while Heyward was hitting .158 off lefty pitchers. How could anything positive happen for the Cubs?
Just know the guy has good stuff, and he’s not going to give you a lot to hit in Jordan Bell Jersey the zone, so if something is there, keep it simple, Heyward said Monday after the Cubs’ 7-2 win in 11 innings. Take what he gives you. Hard single to right.
Heyward turned on a 95 mph fastball and drove it into right field at an exit velocity of 107 mph, the second-hardest hit ball off Hader this season, according to Statcast. Ben Zobrist came around to score.
For two seasons, that was a pitch Heyward never would have hit hard, but times are changing for him. One big hit might be a fluke, but several in a week could have a lot more meaning.
His setup is entirely different, manager Joe Maddon said. And with that, he’s making a better pass at the baseball. He’s just set better. You can see how the ball is coming off the bat. It’s kind of snapping. There is no push in his swing. It’s all snap right now. That’s the difference.
