Starting Nine: Clanging into History
Will Harris came set to the belt for his 0-and-1 offering to Washington’s Howie Kendrick, and Astros catcher Robinson Chirinos hopped to his right to give Harris a target away from the right-handed swinging designated hitter.
The pitch may have caught a bit too much of the plate for Harris’ liking, but still was low and somewhat outside. Kendrick, however, kept his head on the ball and took the pitch to the opposite field.
