Analysis: Kiermaier is only 6 for 31 against New York.

7/4/2015 Dan Straily, Hou, P
Straily was a dud in his season debut Friday.

Analysis: Straily, recalled from Triple-A Fresno and making his first start for Houston, allowed five runs - four earned - six hits and three walks in 4 2-3 innings. It's not clear if he will start again.
7/4/2015 Mookie Betts, Bos, CF
Betts was 2 for 6 on Friday.

Analysis: Betts was caught stealing so that hurt his fantasy owners. They can take solace in the fact that he is 10 for 25 in his last five games.
7/4/2015 Pablo Sandoval, Bos, 3B
Sandoval was 2 for 5 with two RBIs on Friday.

Analysis: Sandoval has still been a puzzling failure with a .717 OPS for the last-place BoSox.
7/4/2015 Xander Bogaerts, Bos, SS
Bogaerts was 2 for 4 with three runs on Friday.

Analysis: Bogaerts has a .825 OPS at home so he is a product of hitter-friendly Fenway Park.
7/4/2015 David Ortiz, Bos, DH
Ortiz was 2 for 3 with two RBIs on Friday.

Analysis: In truth, 'Big Papi' has made his fantasy owners unhappy this year with a pathetic .753 OPS. Maybe he will redeem himself after the All-Star break.
7/4/2015 Preston Tucker, Hou, LF
Tucker was 2 for 5 on Friday.

Analysis: Tucker is a rookie enduring growing pains so be patient with the kid.
7/4/2015 Alex Presley, Hou, LF

Analysis: Presley made his season debut and figures to get more action with rising stud George Springer on the DL.
7/4/2015 Evan Gattis, Hou, DH
Gattis was 2 for 4 on Friday.

Analysis: Gattis is finding his groove with a .313 average in his last 12 games.
7/4/2015 Carlos Correa, Hou, SS
The irrepressible Correa hooked up his fantasy owners Friday.

Analysis: Correa went 3 for 6 with his first Fenway dinger to up his OPS to a robust .890, though he also committed an error. His enthusiasm is contagious. "It's a fun game, and that's why we love it," Correa said.
7/4/2015 Jose Altuve, Hou, 2B
Altuve hooked up his fantasy owners Friday.

Analysis: Altuve had three hits and two RBIs and is batting .395 during an 11-game hitting streak, though he also committed an error Friday.
7/4/2015 Anibal Sanchez, Det, P
Sanchez's no-hit bid for the Detroit Tigers was broken up Friday.

Analysis: Sanchez's no-hit bid was broken up when former Detroit teammate Ezequiel Carrera lined a single to left with one out in the eighth inning. Given an 8-0 lead, Sanchez wound up allowing four runs, three hits and three walks in 7 1-3 innings, and left after 117 pitches. He was bidding to become the sixth pitcher to throw no-hitters in the AL and NL.
