Dallas Keuchel pitches shutout in front of crowd wearing Dallas Keuchel beards

Dallas Keuchel pitched a complete-game shutout in a 4-0 win against the Yankees on Thursday night. It was his second shutout this season and third of his young career. He gave up just six hits, walked one and struck out a career-high 12 to move his record to 9-3. So, what is it? What powered him to his dominance over the Bronx Bombers? Um, duh, guys. BEARDS:

Yes, Keuchel's Korner made its debut on Thursday in all of its Keuchel beard glory and it's the only reasonable explanation for the lefty's excellent start. Because there's nothing more powerful than the power of the beard.
