Game Thread 7/2: Houston Astros

New, comments

Prior to the game, Clayton Kershaw was sent down to make room for Hiroki Kuroda on the active roster. I do like this move overall, because we really do need to limit Kershaw's innings this year, and this could make him available for a stretch run. It also removes the slim chance he could have recieved arbitration this year. However, Kershaw is certainly a better pitcher than Eric Stults, so losing him does make the team worse in the short term.
