Rasmussen struck out Matt Chapman before being replaced by Colin Fauche, who gave up back-to-back pushback walks to Alejandro Kirk and Santiago Espinal to make it 1-4.
Danny Jansen wanted to step down due to a double hit by the shortstop in the ongoing crisis with the bases loaded,온라인카지노 but second baseman Brandon Lowe made a catch error and allowed 2 runs to make it 1-6.
