MLB Veteran and Sportslynx client Tony Kemp came through in the clutch this past weekend for the Houston Astros. The Astros were playing at home against the Cleveland Indians, and Saturday’s game featured late scoring innings off both team’s bullpens. Kemp came into the game as a pinch hitter in the 10th inning, and was able to take a sinker from Indians pitcher Adam Cimber over the right field wall.
Kemp has been in the Astros organization since he was drafted out of Vanderbilt in 2013. He made his MLB debut in 2016, and has 485 plate apperances at that level under his belt. Most of those appearances came with the Astros last season (294), where he hit for .263/.351/.392.
