SUN, JULY 16, 2017 - Grilli (2-5) took the loss Sunday in Kansas City after allowing the winning run on two hits and one walk with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning. Grilli was acquired from the Blue Jays earlier this month to shore up Texas' disastrous bullpen, but this outing suggests he isn't an upgrade in high-leverage situations. Tasked with pitching the bottom of the ninth in a tie game, Grilli promptly loaded the bases with one out. He gave Rangers fans hope by striking out Jorge Bonifacio, then induced a weak flyball from Lorenzo Cain, only to see right fielder Shin-Soo Choo lose sight of the ball in the sun. Grilli was still charged with an earned run as a result, increasing his ERA to 6.56 on the season.
