No structural issues for Zack Greinke; Houston Astros eye his playoff help

No structural issues for Zack Greinke; Houston Astros eye his playoff help”

The Astros and A's have combined for 11 home runs in two games of the series.

Including his opening-round playoff start at Minnesota on September 29, when he lasted only four innings (one run, two hits allowed) in a 4-1 Astros win, Greinke has not gone more than five innings in any of his last four starts. Valdez didn't allow the A's much else, and those two homers couldn't overcome the. He walked three batters and struck out just one in that start.

Travis d'Arnaud broke a seventh-inning tie with a home run as Atlanta erupted for six runs in the frame en route to a victory over Miami in Game 1 of their National League Division Series in Houston. Ronald Acuna Jr. led off the first with a home run, and Marcell Ozuna drove in two runs with a single and a double for the second-seeded Braves, who won for the third straight time in the postseason after having swept the Cincinnati Reds in the best-of-three first round. He began and dropped the card against the Chicago White Sox, giving up three runs and six hits at 3 1/3 innings with five strikeouts and no walks. Chris Bassitt didn't get out of the fourth in Game 1, allowing three runs and nine hits.

The Houston Astros need to win just one more game to advance to their fourth straight American League Championship Series.

Springer also extended his Astros postseason-homer record to 17. Manaea gave up four runs and five hits in 4 2/3 innings.

Stanton had two homers and four RBIs for NY, including a booming three-run shot that cleared the second-deck seating area in left-center field at Petco Park.

Instead of Greinke (3-3, 4.03 ERA in 12 starts this season) starting on Wednesday, two weeks shy of his 37th birthday, right-hander Jose Urquidy (1-1, 2.73) will take the mound with the Astros leading the best-of-five series 2-0. The Dodgers ended up with four hits and two walks in the rally, which also featured a run-scoring wild pitch.

During the regular season, Urquidy made five starts and totaled 29.2 innings of work, during which he pitched to the tune of a 2.73 ERA.

Houston turned three double plays, including one to end the game.
