Red Raiders in the Pros - Week 8

A Red Raider performs large on the big stage of the Fall Classic

Josh Tomlin - SP (Cleveland Indians)

Two weeks ago we brought up Tomlin and his stellar pitching in the postseason after a shaky regular season. He started game 3 for Cleveland in Wrigley, and had a fantastic game. The wind was blowing heavily, but he pitched 4.2 scoreless innings, allowing only 2 hits, paving the way for the Indians 1-0 win. The game was more special for Josh as his father, who suffers from a condition that causes him to be paralyzed from the waist down, was in the stands. Josh said when the game would get too fast for him, he would find his dad in the stands, and his presence alone would calm him down. Josh is set to start tonight in Game 6 against Arrieta for the Cubs, in what could be a World Series clinching game for the Indians.

Danny Amendola - WR (New England Patriots)

Amendola only had 4 passes thrown his way, but he made the most of them with 3 receptions for 29 yards including a score in the Patriots 41-25 rout of the Bills.

Michael Crabtree - WR (Oakland Raiders)

In an NFL game that went to overtime, but actually crowned a victor, Raiders QB Derek Carr was busy and had Mahomes-like numbers with 59 pass attempts and over 500 yards. Crabtree was 2nd on the team in receiving with 108 yards on 8 receptions. Amari Cooper’s 173 yards helped the team win the game, but Crabtree continues to be a key cog n the Raiders high-scoring offense.

DeAndre Washington - RB (Oakland Raiders)

DeAndre received his quota of 5 carries for 32 yards in the OT win over the Bucs. That was the 4th game of 8 this season that Washington has carried the ball 5 times. He continues to be a small part of the Raiders offense, who do not generally rush that often.

Kerry Hyder - DE (Detroit Lions)

Kerry had 4 tackles this week, 2 solo, and 1.5 for loss. He was held off the sack sheet again, but continues to be a presence on the Lions defensive front.
