Winners and losers from first week of MLB season

Winners and losers from first week of MLB season The MLB season is one week old. For some teams, it’s been a smooth start to a long journey. Others have hit a great deal of turbulence. Coming into the year, most power rankings would have had the Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox, and New York Yankees at the top in some order. But one week in, that’s been anything but the case. But teams like the Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers also came into the season with high expectations that thus far, have been met. The first week of the 2019 MLB seasons produced its share of winners and losers. These were the most notable among them.

You get what happened in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway. Kyle Busch raced not to lose, while his teammate, Carl Edwards, raced with purpose—bumped Busch—and became the first driver That, and more, in this week’s reprisal of winners and loser from Richmond .

Read on for some winners and losers from Sunday’s Toyota Owners 400. Richmond was the site of Stewart’s first career win, and now the worst start to his career keeps going. Watching his teammate/employee Busch lead nearly 300 laps and win the race is good medicine.

Cole CusterHe won Friday night’s Xfinity race, giving him his second victory of the season. This is what he needs to do to make a move to Cup. Last September, car owner Gene Haas was asked about Custer (who had two career Xfinity wins at the time) possibly moving to Cup to replace Kurt Busch for this season. Haas said then: “We think Cole is a good talent. I think he’s talented. He’s very marketable. I think a lot of things are positives, but he has to win the Xfinity (Series) before he really move up to Cup racing.”

LOSERS

Kyle LarsonContact led to a tire rub. Even after pitting, he still had problems and hit the wall to finish last in the 37-car field. Larson has not finished in the top 15 in the last four races. He’s placed 37th or worse in two of the last three races.

Check out who’s this week’s winners and losers at Richmond . Leaving Richmond in the top 12 is important and this team is in the top 12 and looking for more. The US Army Chevy was one of the three best cars out there on Saturday, had they not hit Mark Martin and lost those positions he would have

No. 20 Cup team Erik Jones qualified second only to lose that starting spot when his car was among eight that failed inspection before the race. That forced him to start at the rear. He steadily moved into the top 10 but then two slow pit stops doomed him. On a night that a JGR car won, Jones saw his hopes go away. Now this is the only team at JGR that has yet to win a Cup race this season.

Hendrick Motorsports None of its cars was a factor. Jimmie Johnson finished 12th, Willam Byron 13th, Chase Elliott 15th and Alex Bowman 17th.

Truex said it felt like "driving on snow" at Richmond finish.
Joe Gibbs Racing's Martin Truex Jr said his final stint on the way to a NASCAR Cup Series victory at Richmond was "like driving in the snow". The one-time Cup champion had to hold Clint Bowyer off for over 70 laps as the SHR car appeared to have the late-race advantage before Joey Logano increased the pressure when he moved into second with 15 laps to go. Truex won by 0.178s over Logano and explained his poor-handling Toyota in the final stint was the reason for a close finish.
