George Springer’s solo home run in the first inning proved to be the game’s final score. Springer hit a home run over the left-centre field fence off starter Logan Allen in the first inning. His 14th of the season.

They could have scored more runs, but they didn’t. He was 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position and stranded eight.

The offence didn’t go his way, including a Vladimir Guerrero Jr. double with runners on first and second in the fifth inning and a failure to capitalise on a bases-loaded opportunity in the eighth.

Instead, the mound held up. Starter Kevin Gausman set the tone with seven innings of four-hit, six-strikeout ball.

He relied heavily on his four-seam fastball (48 per cent) and splitter (44 per cent) two-pitch arsenal, but it was more than enough.

The seventh inning was the key. He gave up a double to Oscar Gonzalez and then a well-hit line drive to Cole Calhoun, but centre fielder Dalton Bashaw made the catch in front of the fence. Gaussman then threw out the runner at second base to get out of the jam.

The bullpen followed suit. Eric Swanson worked the eighth and left-handers Tim Mayza and Jordan Hicks split the ninth. Hicks recorded his 11th save of the season.
