Angels’ Heaney shuts down Orioles in last start
Andrew Heaney allowed one earned run, five hits and a walk with two strikeouts over six innings in a win against the Orioles on Wednesday. Heaney threw 54 of his 86 pitches for strikes in the quality start, picking up his first victory of the season. This was his longest start of the season and the one run and five hits allowed tied a season best. It also helped he was working against the lowly O's. His next scheduled start is likely to come at Coors Field against the Rockies. If he makes it through that start relatively unscathed then he will be worth trusting in mixed fantasy formats again.
Gray pitches well for Rockies vs. Cubs
Jon Gray allowed just one run and three hits over seven innings in defeating the Cubs on Tuesday. Gray was terrific with the wind blowing out at Wrigley. He immediately allowed a homer to Anthony Rizzo in the bottom of the first, but he gave up just two additional hits and walked one. He's lowered his ERA from 7.09 to 4.99 by allowing one run over his last two starts.
