Oct. 2 11:52 PM PT12:52 AM MT1:52 AM CT2:52 AM ET2:52 ET6:52 GMT14:52 11:52 PM MST1:52 AM EST2:22 AM VEN10:52 UAE1:52 AM CT-Cole Hamels fell to 11-6, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk in 3.0 innings, as the Texas Rangers lost to the Oakland Athletics 5-2 on Sunday. Hamels struck out five, ending the game with a 4.20 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hamels just wasn't himself during the season's stretch run, going 2-5 with an uncharacteristic 6.12 ERA over his final eight starts. With his strikeout rate sharply declining from his usual levels as well, the four-time All-Star may be overvalued in 2018 fantasy drafts.
