KEEP IN THE PARK 
…Felix has allowed 7 home runs this season and just four in his last 20 starts (145.0 IP) since April 26…is on pace to allow just 9 home runs this season which would be the fewest allowed in club history by a pitcher with 200.0+ innings…

 holds club record (12 in 1995), followed by
