Rangers Pitching Ravaged by Kieboom
Thursday, May 28th, 2020
It doesn't happen very often, but it did for Carter Kieboom today -- a 5-hit effort. He went on a rampage at Globe Life Field and paced the Nationals to a 31-3 win over the Texas Rangers.

After his dynamite batting performance, the Washington third baseman told reporters that he "just tried to get in a good count and have a good at-bat. That's all I can control."

His philosophy paid dividends today. He slammed 5 hits in 7 tries and put his name in the record book. Carter Kieboom singled in the 1st, singled in the 2nd, hit a two-run home run off Joe Palumbo in the 3rd, hit an RBI single in the 4th, struck out in the 5th, hit an RBI single in the 6th, walked in a run in the 6th and struck out in the 8th.

Thus far this year Kieboom is batting .271 with 10 home runs, 36 RBIs and 38 runs scored.

Arraez Hits in 20 Consecutive Games
Thursday, May 28th, 2020
Win or lose, Luis Arraez just keeps on getting base hits -- game after game after game. He picked up 2 more today and has now stretched his hitting streak to 20 games.

The Minnesota Twins left fielder went 2-for-4 today, but it wasn't enough to win the game. His club was defeated 7-2 by the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

"It's amazing to watch him hit right now, but I don't think anybody's really mentioning it," one of his teammates said. "We just don't want to jinx him."
Luis Arraez struck out in the 1st, doubled in the 3rd, singled in the 6th and grounded out in the 8th.

This year Arraez has batted at a .353 pace with 66 hits, 3 home runs, 13 RBIs and scored 24 times.
Chen Whitewashes Kansas City, 7-0
Wednesday, May 27th, 2020
It was not a good day at the plate for the Kansas City Royals. They came up empty when it mattered against Boston Red Sox left-hander Wei-Yin Chen, who scattered 4 hits across 9 innings and held the Royals scoreless.

"We had 4 hits so I know he wasn't completely untouchable, but he was close," Kansas City manager Mike Matheny said later.

Chen chalked up 4 strikeouts and no walks in the 7-0 Red Sox win.

Thus far this season Chen has posted a 2-2 record, started 4 games, struck out 24 batters in 34.2 innings and compiled a 4.15 ERA.
