Sears gives Yanks another scoreless gem in spot start
NEW YORK — It was a sun-splashed morning in late March as the Yankees held a closed-door meeting with the four dozen or so players still in camp, reinforcing that the year is long and there would be opportunities for all to contribute this season. JP Sears was listening.
Inserted into the rotation for his second spot start of the year, Sears has been among a group of impressive young pitchers summoned to help the Yankees build upon their Major League-best record. The lefty dazzled over 5 2/3 scoreless innings, walking off to a standing ovation during New York’s 2-1 victory over the A’s on Tuesday night.
Valdez boosts All-Star case with scoreless gem vs. Mets
NEW YORK — The Astros will be well-represented at the All-Star Game next month, with manager Dusty Baker and his coaching staff guiding the American League squad. Then there’s AL Most Valuable Player candidate Yordan Alvarez and AL Cy Young candidate Justin Verlander leading the way when it comes to Houston’s players.
They may have to make a little room on the flight to Los Angeles for left-hander Framber Valdez, who solidified his résumé as one of the best pitchers in the AL this year by throwing eight scoreless innings in the Astros’ 9-1 win over the Mets on Tuesday night at Citi Field.
