BOSTON — Back on June 10
after allowing 13 hits and five earned  Robinson Cano Jersey , runs in a start against the Texas Rangers, Dallas Keuchel was 3-8 with a 4.45 ERA in his final season before potential free agency.The left-hander is 8-2 with a 2.62 ERA since as he tries to pitch the Houston Astros to a sweep of their three-game series with the Boston Red Sox in Sunday night’s series finale at Fenway Park.Rick Porcello, a 16-game winner who has had his second-half struggles, goes for the Red Sox, who have lost their first home series in the last 11 thanks to losses Friday and Saturday.Article continues below ...The Astros, maintaining their 3 1/2-game lead over the winning Oakland A’s in the American League West, rallied for a 6-3 victory Friday night and got homers from Alex Bregman and Martin Maldonado in Saturday’s 5-3 win — their seventh straight and 14th in their last 17 games.Jake Marisnick made an outstanding running catch of an Andrew Benintendi drive with the bases loaded and two outs in the fourth inning. He also had a sacrifice fly.Bregman’s homer was his career-high 30th of the season, something he called “a nice little accomplishment.” He joins Morgan Ensberg as the only Astros third basemen to reach 30 — and his torrid streak has vaulted him into the MVP conversation.Boston’s Mookie Betts ripped his 40th double of the year Saturday, making him the first player in MLB history with four straight seasons of 40 doubles and 20 stolen bases.The Red Sox scored in the ninth inning and had first and third with one out against Roberto Osuna, but J.D. Martinez grounded into a double play to end it.“Any time he comes up, regardless of the score, we feel that he’s gonna barrel something,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora Felix Hernandez Jersey , the bench coach for last year’s Houston champions, said. “Just a good pitch by Osuna, and he got him to roll over and that was it.“I don’t know what the numbers are with men in scoring position (3-for-13), but it felt like we had traffic in both games and we haven’t been able to cash in. They made some pitches too — you’ve got to give them credit.”Keuchel has won his last two starts to climb above .500, yielding three earned runs in 12 innings.He is 0-1 with a whopping 9.88 ERA in three games (two starts) in the regular season against Boston. But he went 5 2/3 innings, allowing one run, in winning Game 2 of last season’s American League Division Series.Porcello is 16-7 with a 4.20 ERA. He has won his last two starts, but gave up five runs in 10 innings in those games and is 2-3 with a 5.73 ERA in his last six outings.He beat the Astros on June 3 in Houston, going 6 1/3 innings and allowing two earned runs — and is 2-1 lifetime against them.The current Red Sox are hitting a combined .219 lifetime with four home runs against Keuchel. Ian Kinsler is 10-for-33, but Mitch Moreland (likely to sit) is 1-for-13, Steve Pearce 2-for-19 with a home run, Martinez 1-for-9 and Xander Bogaerts 1-for-7 with a homer.The Astros on the roster have hit a combined .268 with four home runs against Porcello. Marwin Gonzalez, who returned as a pinch runner in the ninth inning Saturday Hisashi Iwakuma Jersey , is 3-for-7 and Josh Reddick 3-for-10, and Maldonado is 2-for-9 with a home run.Lance McCullers Jr., out since Aug. 4 with a right forearm strain, threw his second bullpen of the week Saturday — 30 pitches, all fastballs.“Honestly I couldn’t have hoped for a better pen today,” McCullers said. “It’s a good step forward. I still have a couple more boxes to check before we start getting into games, but this was a big step for me.”Cora indicated before the game that Brandon Phillips will get his second start with the Red Sox in Sunday night’s game. He hit a two-run, ninth-inning homer to win Wednesday’s game in Atlanta. Al Bello/Getty ImagesThe New York Mets agreed to trade veteran second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera to the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.The Phillies will send right-handed pitching prospectFranklyn Kilome, who is currently in Double-A, to the Mets. According to MLB.com, Kilome is the Phillies' 10th-ranked prospect.Ken Rosenthal Ken_RosenthalDouble A RHP Franklyn Kilom茅, listed at 6-6 Ken Griffey Jersey , 175 pounds, is the #Phillies鈥?No. 10 prospect, per MLBPipeline. In 19 starts at Reading this season, he is 4-6 with a 4.24. ERA. Per MLB Pipeline, 鈥淧ure stuff-wise, Kilom茅 is as good as just about any pitching prospect in system.鈥滵espite turning 32 in November, Cabrera is sporting the best power numbers of his MLB career. Through 98 games, he's slugging a personal-best .488, while his 18home runs and 58RBI have him on pace to challenge his career highs in those categories (25 and 92, respectively)as well.As the 2018 season went on, it became a matter of when rather than if the Mets would trade Cabrera.New York got off to an 11-1 start before the wheels completely fell off. At 43-57, the Mets are 14games back of the Phillies in the National League East and 11.5games off the final NL wild-card spot.With the Mets out of the playoff race for all intents and purposes, it made little sense to keep a player who's hitting free agency this winter. Cabrera had far more value to New York as a trade asset rather than the everyday second baseman.The Mets could have extended a one-year qualifying offer to Cabrera at the end of the year http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authen...uki-jersey , thus netting themselves a draft pick if he turned around and signed elsewhere, but the qualifying offer was worth $17.4 million last year. That would have been a steep price to pay for one year of Cabrera's services if he had accepted it and returned to the Big Apple.The allure of acquiring Cabrera for Philadelphiais obvious. If his offense regresses slightly in the second half of the year, he still averaged 16 home runs and 61 RBI with a .261/.321/.425 slash line over his previous five seasons, per Baseball Reference.The Venezuelan has a solid baseline for a middle infielder.While the Mets have used Cabrera exclusively at second in 2018, he can seamlessly shift between second base and shortstop, the latter of which was his primary position for much of his time in the majors.The Philliesdidn't have many options to upgrade their offense, particularly through the middle infield.The asking price for Manny Machado was astronomical compared to what they had to surrender for Cabrera. Likewise, the Cincinnati Reds were in a position to demand more for Scooter Gennett since he's under team control for 2019. Brian Dozier is battling through a disappointing season, thus diminishing his value as a deadline target.Cabrera addresses a clear need for Philadelphia,and he should make an impact over the stretch run.
