That probably could have been scored an error, but he did hit it very hard. Gallo was batting .314/.425/.636 with nine home runs and 31 RBI in 34 games this season at Double-A Frisco when the Rangers decided to promote him to cover for Adrian Beltre’s thumb injury. Gallo had 42 home runs last year in the minors.
WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.
He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.
Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.
The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.
Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
