Whenever you limit a man with 417 career bombs to a double in a key situation, a part of you might be relieved. Cruz went oppo against Houston's Zack Greinke in the 3rd, barely scoring Max Kepler from first base.
Astros CL Ryan Pressly followed Javier's three shutout, hitless innings with a 1-2-3 9th (including an iffy check-swing K of Sano), sealing the 3-1 victory and an upset sweep of the three-game series. Minnesota finished the series with seven total hits and a slashline of .119/.246/.153 (even WITH Cruz's contributions.)
#3 seed Minnesota won 36 times during the regular season, tied with Oakland for second-most in the AL. #6 seed Houston stumbled into the playoffs with three straight season-ending losses and a 29-31 record. Who would YOU wager on?
