Struggles through four innings Bassit allowed four runs on nine hits (including two homers) in his four-inning start in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Astros on Monday, striking out four while walking none.
Impact The outing was a far cry from the seven-inning, one-run performance Bassitt managed in Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series against the White Sox. The Astros had runners on base in each of Bassitt's innings, though it took until the fourth for them to break through, with a solo shot by Alex Bregman followed two batters later by a two-run homer from Carlos Correa. Bassitt threw 73 pitches, so it's conceivable he could pitch in some capacity on short rest in Game 5 on Friday, if necessary.
