Both were at home — against the Texas Rangers on Aug. 25 and the New York Mets on Friday. Against the Mets, Suarez allowed two hits and no walks with five strikeouts in seven innings.Suarez, the winning pitcher in each outing, gave up five hits and three walks with 10 strikeouts in the starts.

In two starts against the Rockies, Suarez is 0-1 Marwin Gonzalez Jersey , 3.00.“He has good stuff,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “He’s a four-pitch guy that will throw any pitch anytime. And I think his confidence has grown. It’s part of maturing as a pitcher to have the confidence to throw any pitch anytime for a strike. He’s been able to do that. Has got good movement on his pitches.”The Giants drafted Suarez in the second round in 2015 out of the University of Miami. He made it to Double-A Richmond for 19 starts in 2016 and went back there the following season before finishig the year at Triple-A Sacramento. Suarez, who turns 26 on Tuesday, has given the Giants a huge lift this season after starters Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija were lost to injuries. Cueto and Samardzia are out for the season.“He’s a guy that we thought a lot of the last couple years, even going back to Richmond when he pitched there,” Bochy said. “He’s not really surprising us. Obviously a nice shot in the arm with what he’s been doing. He’s had a couple hiccups. That’s where he’s getting better, I think, with his pitching — just figuring out ways to limit the damage and stay out there.”Senzatela, who is 2-4 angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-mike-trout-jersey , 4.37 in eight starts this season, pitched well in his last outing Friday at San Diego, giving up one run and four hits in six innings before the Rockies’ bullpen stumbled in what became a 7-0 loss to the Padres.He is 4-0, 3.26 in six games (four starts) against the Giants, including a win this year July 3 at Coors Field when he held them to three hits in seven shutout innings in Colorado’s 8-1 win.Catcher Chris Iannetta, who was behind the plate for Senzatela’s last start at San Diego, said: “It’s just all command. His ability to command as many pitches as possible in the strike zone is his key to success. When he does that, when he executes his pitches, it’s a tough at-bat for the opposing hitters. When he falls behind and he has to throw the fastball over the middle of the plate, it swings in the hitter’s favor a little bit Kole Calhoun Jersey , so it’s harder.”Iannetta said Senzatela’s changeup “definitely is his second-best pitch.” And against the Padres, Iannetta said Senzatela “had the slider going, had the changeup going and the fastball to both sides (of the plate).” Joe Robbins/Getty ImagesThe Philadelphia Phillies have upgraded at catcher by acquiring Wilson Ramos from the Tampa Bay Rays.The Phillies announced the deal afterMLB.com's Mark Feinsandfirst reported the move.Per Joel Sherman of theNew York Post, the Rays will receive a player to be named later.Injuries hampered Ramos early in his career, including a torn ACL in his right knee during a game in 2012 and hamstring problems early in 2013.The 2016 season, however, was the first time the Venezuelan played at an All-Star level. He set career-highs in batting average (.307), slugging percentage (.496), home runs (22), doubles (25) and hits(148) for the Washington Nationals.Unfortunately for Ramos Garrett Richards Jersey , 2016 came to a premature end Sept. 26 when he tore the ACL in his right knee again after landing awkwardly while trying to catch a throw from the outfield.Betting on Ramos' upside and stability behind the plate, the Rays signed him to a two-year deal. He only appeared in 64 games last season, but he hit 11 home runs. He was named to the AL All-Star team in 2018 with a.297/.346/.488 slash line in the first half.Ramos is on the disabled list with a hamstring injury he suffered July 14 against the Minnesota Twins.The Rays have been a pleasant surprise with a 53-53 record so far after dealing Evan Longoria, Jake Odorizzi, Stephen Souza Jr. and Corey Dickerson in the offseason. The problem is they play in the same division as the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, who are the top two teams in the AL by record.Philadelphia leads the National League East by 0.5 games over the Atlanta Braves. Jorge Alfaro has been the Phillies' primary catcher this season and has a .254/.305/.398 slash line with seven homers.Ramos' bat will be a significant upgrade for the Phillies as they chase their first playoff appearance since 2011.
