Yankees’ Happ cruises to win over A’s
J.A. Happ allowed one run on two hits over six innings in a win over the Athletics on Tuesday. Happ remains unbeaten since being acquired from the Blue Jays at the trade deadline. He’s 6-0 with a sparkling 3.10 ERA and 40/9 K/BB ratio across seven starts in a Yankee uniform. The 35-year-old southpaw served up a solo homer to Stephen Piscotty in the second inning, but that was the only tally against him in this one. He struck out five and only issued one walk.
Twins’ Gibson takes loss to Astros in last start
Kyle Gibson lost after allowing four runs -- two earned -- in seven innings to the Astros on Monday. Gibson gave up homers to Alex Bregman and Yuli Gurriel. The other runs were considered unearned because of a Jorge Polanco error, so it goes down as Gibson's 16th quality start in 28 tries this season. He's had a fine year; he just hasn't looked quite as strong lately.
