TAMPA Cam Ward Jersey Womens , Fla. (AP) — Brayden Point and the Tampa Bay Lightning had a big-time response after a lopsided loss at Arizona over the weekend.Point had a career-high five points with a goal and four assists, defenseman Braydon Coburn scored twice, and the Lightning rallied from an early two-goal deficit to beat the New Jersey Devils 8-3 on Tuesday night.“We controlled the majority of the play,” Lightning star Steven Stamkos said.Point has seven goals and seven assists in 11 games this season.“He’s a real tenacious player,” Devils coach John Hynes said. “He’s extremely competitive. He’s a high-skilled player that plays the game the right way all the time. He’s a difficult player to play against.”Stamkos got his 350th career goal and added two assists for Tampa Bay, which was coming off a 3-1-1 trip that included a 7-1 loss in Arizona on Saturday.“It’s always nice when you get an accomplishment like that,” Stamkos said.Nikita Kucherov had two goals and an assist, and Tyler Johnson and Ryan McDonagh had the other Lightning goals. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves.Kucherov left with 6 minutes left in the second after taking a shot near the inside of his left knee but returned early in the third.Miles Wood, Travis Zajac and Kyle Palmieri scored for the Devils, who started a seven-game trip. Keith Kinkaid stopped 31 of 38 shots before being replaced five minutes into the third by Cory Schneider http://www.islandersfanproshop.com/authe...ech-jersey , who allowed a goal on six shots in his first game after offseason hip surgery.“In general, we weren’t good enough to be able to win the game,” Hynes said. “They were better, basically, in every facet of the game. We’ve got to learn lessons from it and address some things. We’ve got some things to talk about tomorrow.”Point scored 31 seconds into the second as Tampa Bay went up 3-2. Kucherov and Stamkos added power-play goals later in the period that made it 5-2.After Wood and Zajac scored in the opening 5:04, Coburn tied it at 2 with first-period goals at 7:30 and 13:30.“The game just slipped away,” New Jersey center Nico Hischier said. “We didn’t play our game. We stopped forechecking, we stopped hitting them.”Coburn stopped a 38-game goal drought and has 46 goals in 861 NHL games. He scored just once in three of the previous four regular seasons. It was his second career multi-goal game, with the other coming on Oct. 31, 2009 Anders Lee Jersey , while with Philadelphia.“Every nine years,” Coburn said with a smile. “It was real nice to be able to chip in offensively.”Coburn had a third-period shot go wide.“It would have been a cool feeling,” Coburn said of a potential hat trick.Tampa Bay’s penalty kill had not allowed a goal in 24 chances at home before Palmieri got his ninth goal, which cut the deficit to 5-3 on the Devils’ second power play late in the second. Taylor Hall assisted and extended his point streak to eight games (10 assists, 12 points).Johnson, Kucherov and McDonagh all scored in the third.NOTES: Lightning D Victor Hedman (shoulder) missed his second straight game and will be re-evaluated this weekend. LW Ondrej Palat (foot) also sat out his second consecutive game and is day-to-day. … Devils LW Marcus Johansson (illness) returned after missing one game, D Ben Lovejoy (lower body) was activated off injured reserve and D Eric Gryba was assigned to Binghamton of the AHL.UP NEXTDevils: Play Thursday night at Detroit.Lightning: Host Nashville on Thursday night. Just over a year ago, Lauren Boyle was searching the internet for information on leukemia after husband Brian’s blood test showed serious irregularities.Now, she’s hoping to tell the hockey world her story.Lauren Boyle will be unveiled Thursday as the NHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer ambassador after her family’s turbulent 14-month ordeal. The New Jersey Devils forward who doubles as her husband and father of their two children recently announced his cancer is in remission, and she’s thankful for that and a “miracle” diagnosis that their now 3-year-old son is not after all battling the disease.“I just pray Andrew Ladd Jersey , that I can help anyone if they need it, whether it be advice or what got us through day to day from little things like how we changed Brian’s diet to praying or just how we spent our time,” Lauren Boyle said. “I would like to also raise money for research. It’s incredible what they can do with the right time and money.”Research helped develop a pill that Brian began taking twice daily the night in September 2017 he found out he had Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. And research not long after helped a doctor at Boston Children’s Hospital determine their son, Declan, had Arteriovenous malformation of the mandible rather than fatal carcinoma of the mandible — at odds of 1 percent.Lauren Boyle’s story should bring awareness to the NHL and NHL Players’ Association’s Hockey Fights Cancer initiative this month just as Nicholle Anderson’s did a year ago. The wife of Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson beat throat cancer and served in this ambassador role in 2017.Before the two women met at the NHL Awards in June when Brian received the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication, the Boyles went through a roller-coaster time that featured the birth of their second child, news of his cancer and Declan’s scare. In that time, they managed everything about Brian’s life and at times had to put hockey aside so he could accompany her to pick up their son from surgery because of concern he could bleed out while she was driving.“One time there was a snowstorm and we had to charter a plane, which we don’t really have business doing Anthony Beauvillier Jersey,” Lauren said. “But it is what it is and you’re going to just do whatever it takes to save your son.”Brian played in the All-Star Game, helped the Devils make the playoffs and now has four points in nine games. As Declan navigates a difficult but not impossible road through AVM that has so far included nine operations and the loss of some teeth, he was glad to see his father sometimes gets one or two knocked out.“We told him that the tooth fairy came early,” Lauren said. “Brian got a high stick a week or two ago and Declan was kind of happy to see that someone else gets boo-boos, too.”

SAN FRANCISCO — Two teams playing out the string of losing seasons will open a three-game series Monday night when the San Diego Padres visit the San Francisco Giants.Padres right-hander Bryan Mitchell (1-4 Michael Pineda Jersey , 6.16) and Giants lefty Derek Holland (7-8, 3.57) each will face the same opponent as in his last start, although they did not go head-to-head last week in San Diego.The Giants got home runs from Brandon Crawford and Evan Longoria off Mitchell in a 4-2 win at San Diego last Monday.Article continues below ...The 27-year-old went five innings, allowing four runs and nine hits, in falling to 0-2 with a 7.88 ERA in two career starts against San Francisco.Holland pitched last Tuesday’s 5-4 victory in San Diego, but he didn’t stick around long enough to get the win. He was pulled after giving up all four Padres runs in five innings, with one of his five hits allowed being a home run by Franmil Reyes.The 31-year-old has a 1-1 lifetime record and 6.39 ERA against the Padres in five starts.The Giants (72-84), losers of four straight, have clinched fourth place in the National League West Fernando Rodney Jersey , while the Padres (62-94), who have dropped two in a row, are assured of finishing last.They were flip-flopped at the end of last season, when the Padres won 71 games and the Giants just 64.Both teams are coming off series where they had a chance to play spoiler, and the Padres did a better job of it.They got home runs from Hunter Renfroe and Freddy Galvis in a 5-3 win over the NL West’s top team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, on Friday night, before getting rolled 7-2 and 14-0 in rematches over the weekend.Eric Lauer, who pitched the win over the Dodgers http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic...eed-jersey , is scheduled to oppose the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner in the series finale Wednesday.The Padres have lost 10 of 16 against the Giants this season, but not because of Renfroe. He’s recorded two doubles, three home runs and seven RBIs against San Francisco despite having started just nine of the games.The Giants flew home Sunday night after having lost three straight to the St. Louis Cardinals, who needed the wins in their pursuit of an NL wild-card spot. Crawford hit a two-run homer to account for all the San Francisco scoring in a 9-2 loss Sunday in the series finale.Crawford has been a key to the Giants’ success against the Padres this season, going 19-for-53 (.358) with two doubles, two triples, a home run and eight RBIs in 13 starts.The otherwise meaningless series pits two young players who so far have made the most of their September opportunities.The Padres’ Reyes, a 23-year-old outfielder who made his major-league debut in May, has gone 22-for-63 (.349) in September with three homers and 10 RBIs.The Giants http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic...uer-jersey , meanwhile, have gotten surprising production from 25-year-old backup catcher Aramis Garcia, who made his debut on Aug. 31. He’s gone 12-for-34 (.353) with two homers and five RBIs this month. PITTSBURGH (AP) — Dexter Fowler’s difficult season has taken another downturn as the St. Louis Cardinals outfielder has sustained a broken left foot and will wear a walking boot for one month.Fowler was put on the 10-day disabled list prior to Saturday night’s game with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Second baseman Kolten Wong was activated from the 10-day DL.Fowler was examined by team doctors. He’ll be reevaluated after a month in the boot.The 32-year-old Fowler was removed in the eighth inning of Friday night’s 7-6 loss to the Pirates. Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said Fowler was injured earlier in the game when he fouled a ball off the foot.Fowler is hitting just .180 with eight home runs and 31 RBIs in 90 games. This is the second year of his $82.5-million, five-year contract.“He was finding his feel at the plate, putting some good swings on the ball and getting the opportunity,” Mozeliak said. “Sometimes things happen for a reason. Hopefully, this gets him to a spot where he can come back better next year, though we haven’t ruled out seeing him again this year.”Wong had been out since July 22 with left knee inflammation. He is hitting .216 with seven homers and 24 RBIs in 91 games.

  With the NFL trade deadline creeping up quickly (Tuesday at 4 p.m. EST) , the Los An
Posted by: linchao - 12-15-2018, 03:08 AM - Forum: Rockman EXE Beast+ - No Replies

With the NFL trade deadline creeping up quickly (Tuesday at 4 p.m. EST)  , the Los Angeles Rams are reportedly looking at EDGE options for trade.

Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer claims the Rams (among others) are looking for edge rushers to Authentic Austin Blythe Jersey trade for. He name dropped guys like Dante Fowler Jr. from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Leonard Floyd from the Chicago Bears, and even mentioned teams calling about Jadeveon Clowney from the Houston Texans (though not the Rams specifically).Floyd and Fowler are both former first round picks with the former’s cap hit coming in at $4.3m on the season and the latter at $7.3m on the season. The remaining names that were dropped in the report (Clowney, Bruce Irvin) weren’t directly linked with the Rams, and it likely has to do with their cap hits coming in at $12.3m on the season and $8.25m on the season.Peter King of NBC Sports is now reporting similar news also claiming the Rams after an EDGE:There is also an interesting tidbit in there that teams around the league have had interest in trading for benched RG Jamon Brown though the Rams likely see enough value to keep him around unless the compensation becomes greater. It wasn’t pretty, but the Rams scratched and clawed their way to 5-0 with a tough 33-31 victory at Seattle. Heading into the game, there were a few narratives in play: a) the Rams would waltz into the Clink and destroy the shorthanded Seahawks, or b) winning on the road against a proud divisional opponent is never easy. Obviously, scenario “b” is what transpired.Here’s a look at Sean Wilkinson’s Five Rams to watch and how they performed on Sunday.ILB Mark BarronIn his season debut, Mark Barron logged 48 snaps (80%) and registered 9 total tackles http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/...old-jersey , 5 of which were solo. His presence was felt, as he was able to lay some lumber on the Seattle RBs. Still, the Seahawks’ success on the ground was a big factor in the game, and though Barron’s return was welcome, the LB unit as a whole was once again underwhelming. Barron’s injury was more than likely a high ankle sprain and not an achilles issue, as was widely speculated — if it’s indeed behind him, look for him to return to form against the Bronco’s talented RB duo.RB Todd GurleyIt’s strange when you’d call a 3-TD, 100 all-purpose yardage game ho-hum, but Todd Gurley has set such a high standard that his solid showing on Sunday was just that. His 3.5 YPC wasn’t exactly awe-inspiring, but on the Rams’ final scoring drive http://www.ramsauthorizedshops.com/authe...lib-jersey , he did have a few nice 6-yard carries to help put us in position to win. He was also denied a TD on a questionable review. With the Rams’ success throwing the ball, it’s only a matter of time before Gurley breaks a few long runs, but he was unable to best his season-long rush of 23 yards on Sunday.K Cairo SantosNewly signed K Cairo Santos almost cost the Rams the game on Sunday with a badly missed PAT, but he recovered to nail the game-winning 39-yarder when the pressure was really on. Given the state of place-kicking this season — Mason Crosby, anyone? — we’ll take it. Also: Santos looked like an NFL kicker, something no one ever said about Sam Ficken. A solid first game for the GZ placeholder.CB Sam ShieldsTwo weeks ago, I picked Troy Hill as one of my Rams to watch, but Marcus Peters was activated in a game-time decision, and Hill played just 2 snaps. This week, Hill got the nod over Vikings’ punching bag Sam Shields Youth John Johnson Jersey , as the veteran CB was on the field for just 10 plays. He continues to show a nose for the ball, with one near-INT in his limited action. Though Hill looked pretty solid opposite Peters (who did not), Shields likely remains a valuable part of the LA secondary as Wade Phillip’s rotates personnel.DL Ndamukong SuhIn what was probably his best game as a Ram to date, Suh registered 7 total tackles (3 solo) and a sack. He also had a sack negated by a defensive holding penalty. Not only is the big fella getting sacks and pressures from all over the line, he’s getting them at critical moments in games. While we’re all sitting around feeling sorry for ourselves (at 5-0!) and our lack of sacks, Suh is quietly having a badass season so far. If you want to nitpick, you can implicate him for some of the Rams run-stopping woes, but from here it looks like 93 is doing his job and doing it well.

ATLANTA (AP) — After the Atlanta Braves leaned heavily on their youth in a breakout season http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-...isk-jersey , a lack of experience and depth finally caught up to them in October.The Baby Braves ran out of steam in the NL Division Series, falling to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2 on Monday. Manny Machado delivered the crushing blow, a three-run homer in the seventh inning against Chad Sobotka, a rookie who made Atlanta’s postseason roster despite appearing in only 14 regular-season games. Los Angeles won the series 3-1.The Braves scored a combined two runs in their three losses.“We didn’t hit,” Freddie Freeman said. “Bottom line. Too many opportunities left out there.”Sobotka was the second straight rookie reliever, after Max Fried, used by manager Brian Snitker in the game.The Braves lost their ninth consecutive playoff series since sweeping the Astros in the 2001 division series. Still, the team has good reason for optimism after improving from 90 losses in 2017 to win their first NL East title since 2013.The Baby Braves enjoyed their postseason moment in the spotlight Sunday night, when 20-year-old rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. became the youngest player to hit a postseason grand slam and rookie Touki Toussaint earned the win in relief. The 6-5 win kept the Braves from being swept in the series.But the kids certainly had their struggles. Acuna’s slam was a highlight, but he batted just .188. Ozzie Albies hit .200 and appeared to miscommunicate with right fielder Nick Markakis on Yasiel Puig’s popup Monday. Johan Camargo was hitless in the series.“I think probably after we won the division, they probably sat around and thought about the playoffs,” said Snitker of the group of young players. “But until you actually experience it, the intensity, just the electricity that’s involved in that. And like I say, if a team makes the playoffs, they’re pretty good.”There was obvious disappointment in the Braves clubhouse.“We didn’t win the World Series. It’s a lost season in my book,” Freeman said.Added Acuna through a translator: “That’s just baseball. Not everything goes the way you want it to. We did everything we could under our control. We put in maximum effort.”Snitker said the young players will benefit from their first postseason.“I think it’s just been a great experience for all those young guys to have experienced the postseason at such a young age,” Snitker said. “I hope they remember how good it felt when we clinched the division. And as they head to their offseason and their workouts and when they get to spring training, you know, they’ll have an eye on the prize there.”The veterans weren’t much of a help, either. Markakis had one hit in 12 at-bats, and Inciarte was 3 for 14. Reliever Jonny Venters created a jam that allowed David Freese to deliver a pinch-hit, two-run single off Brad Brach in the sixth Monday. Even Freeman, an All-Star, couldn’t match his usual production, going 4 for 16 with a homer.Atlanta’s thin bench was a glaring disadvantage Pedro Martinez Jersey , especially when compared with the Dodgers’ impressive depth.Kurt Suzuki, pinch-hitting for Braves starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz, gave Atlanta the run with a two-run single off Rich Hill in the fourth . But Snitker’s other options on a thin bench included Ryan Flaherty, who hit .217 in the regular season, Lane Adams, Lucas Duda and backup catcher Rene Rivera.Duda just missed hitting a three-run homer off Kenta Maeda in the eighth, pulling the deep blast foul, before ending the inning with a fly ball to center.Atlanta’s depth took a hit when shortstop Dansby Swanson was left off the postseason roster with a hand injury.Charlie Culberson, normally a utility player, was forced into a starting role. Culberson was 1 for 4 on Monday and hit only .167 for the series.“It’s one of those things where everyone didn’t expect us to be here,” Culberson said. “We love to prove people wrong, but we’re pretty upset about not making it past the Division Series. … We’re looking forward. With everyone getting postseason experience this year, now we know what to expect and we have bigger goals in mind.” The Baseball Writers' Association of America announced the finalists for each major MLB award earlier this week, including the three players in the running for the AL and NL MVP awards.In the American League, Boston Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts, Cleveland Indians infielder Jose Ramirez and Los Angeles Angeles center fielder Mike Trout finished in the top three in the balloting.On the National League side, it was Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado, Chicago Cubs infielder Javier Baez and Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Christian Yelich as the leading vote-getters.With the field now trimmed to three, it's time for some updated look at each MLB race, complete with odds and predictions.AL MVPMookie BettsBillie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/Getty ImagesOddsMookie Betts, RF, Boston Red Sox: 1-4Mike Trout, CF, Los Angeles Angels: 17-3Jose Ramirez, 2B/3B, Cleveland Indians: 19-1Stat ComparisonBetts:186 OPS+ http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-...rez-jersey , 84 XBH (32 HR), 80 RBI, 129 R, 30 SB, 10.9 WARRamirez:150 OPS+, 81 XBH (39 HR), 105 RBI, 110 R, 34 SB, 7.9 WARTrout:199 OPS+, 67 XBH (39 HR), 79 RBI, 101 R, 24 SB, 10.2 WAROutlookMLB MLBYour 2018 AL MVP finalists:mookiebettsmrlaparaMikeTrout xLG3flO3CkBetts was runner-up to Trout in the 2016 voting, and those two will dominate the balloting once again this year.However, it's Betts who is the clear front-runner this time around.The 26-year-old led the AL in batting average (.346), slugging percentage (.640) and runs scored (129) as one of the driving forces behind a juggernaut offense in Boston.With 30 steals and 32 home runs, he was one of just two 30/30 players around baseball this year.Betts was also his usual brilliant self defensively in right field, tallying 20 DRS with a 21.1 UZR/150 to win his third straight Gold Glove Award.Mike TroutMasterpress/Getty ImagesWhile Trout had another excellent season鈥攍eading the AL in walks (122), on-base percentage (.460), OPS (1.088) and OPS+ (199)鈥攈e did it while playing for sub-.500 Angels team that finished a distant fourth in the AL West.Fair or not, playing for a winning team still factors heavily into the voting.After finishing third in the voting a year ago, Ramirez actuallyimproved in a number of statistical categories, including OPS+ (145 to 150), home runs (29 to 39) Bill Lee Jersey , RBI (83 to 105) and steals (17 to 34), to join Betts as a 30/30 player.However, a case can be made that he wasn't even the best player on his own team, as Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor (131 OPS+, 38 HR, 92 RBI, 25 SB, 7.9 WAR) is headed for a top-10 finish in the voting as well.In the end, the biggest surprise on the AL side was that Ramirez finished ahead of Red Sox slugger J.D.

It's whether he'll win it unanimously.There have been just two unanimous NL winners in the past 15 years鈥擜lbert Pujols in 2009 and Bryce Harper in 2015.Javier BaezJonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesBaez should scoop up the majority of the second-place votes after turning in a breakout season with the Cubs.The free-swinging infielder showed a slightly more refined approach at the plate, trimming his strikeout rate (28.3 to 25.9 percent) and improving his hard-contact rate (32.4 to 35.8 percent) in the process.His quick-twitch athleticism was still on full display on a daily basis, though, as he was a game-changer on the basepaths and defensively at second base and shortstop, along with his gaudy offensive numbers.Arenado edged out the likes of Freddie Freeman, Paul Goldschmidt and Matt Carpenter to finish third in the voting.As usual, he filled up the stat sheet while playing excellent defense at third base for a contending Rockies team.However, his dramatic home (1.105 OPS, 23 HR, 62 RBI) and road (.772 OPS, 15 HR, 48 RBI) splits water down his overall stat line.Prediction:Yelich wins NL MVP unanimouslyAll stats courtesy of Baseball Reference and FanGraphs, unless otherwise noted.

Scott Taetsch/Getty ImagesThe Washington Nationals reportedly agreed to trade starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez to the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday CJ Wilson Jersey , according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.The Nationals will receiveminor-league infielder Gilbert Lara and minor-league catcher KJ Harrison in exchange for Gonzalez, perUSA Today's Bob Nightengale.The move will bolster a Brewers staff that has been decimated by injuries to Brent Suter (Tommy John surgery) and Jimmy Nelson (shoulder surgery).An 11-year veteran, Gonzalez is 7-11 with a 4.57 ERA and 1.53 WHIP this season. He's logged his highest walk rate per nine innings (4.3) since 2009.He's been especially shaky since the All-Star break with a 6.55 ERA, 32 strikeouts and 22 walks across 44 innings.ESPN Stats amp; Info ESPNStatsInfoGio Gonzalez has a 6.53 ERA since the start of June (73rd out of 74 qualified SP during that span, ahead of only Bartolo Colons 7.01 ERA).Gonzalez has a 6.75 ERA in 5 career starts at Miller Park, including a 9.82 ERA in 3 starts there over the last 3 seasons.But with few options ahead of Friday's waiver trade deadline, the Brewers couldn't be picky as they continue to pursue a National League playoff spot. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Whit Merrifield had never hit a game-ending home run — not in middle school http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authent...ias-jersey , high school, college or as a pro — so he tried to admire his shot into the seats Saturday night.The only problem? First base coach Mitch Maier wasn’t sure it was gone.“I heard him yell, ‘Run! Run! Run!” Merrifield said, so he took off running.His two-run shot with one out in the ninth inning was plenty deep, though, landing in the outfield seats and giving the Kansas City Royals a back-and-forth 5-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.“I’m going to have to get Mitch back for that,” Merrifield said with a smile.The Orioles took the lead in the top of the ninth, when Trey Mancini homered to lead off and Tim Beckham added a two-run double for his fourth hit of the night. But when Mychael Givens (0-7) came on to close things out Cody Bellinger Jersey , he promptly walked Brett Phillips on four pitches to start the inning.Cam Gallagher sacrificed Phillips to second, and Merrifield cracked a 0-2 pitch an estimated 415 feet to left field, giving the young Royals their sixth win in seven games this homestand.It’s their best seven-game stretch since July 2017, and includes the first two games in this three-game series between the worst two teams in the major leagues.“I think it gives us confidence,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “When your players have confidence, it gives us confidence too. You can see it in their faces that they continue to gain confidence.”The Royals’ Jason Hammel squandered another solid start by Heath Fillmyer, though that’s hardly new. The 24-year-old Fillmyer allowed two runs on nine hits and a walk over seven innings, striking out six Chris Taylor Jersey , yet was stuck with his sixth no-decision in his last eight starts.Jake Newberry (1-0) wound up earning his first big league win in relief.“Pretty cool,” he said, “to get it on a walk-off homer.”The Orioles took an early lead on John Andreoli’s sacrifice fly and Beckham’s homer on a 3-1 pitch from Fillmyer. But the Royals answered in the bottom of the fourth when Phillips hit his second homer of the season — the 35th allowed by Dylan Bundy, tying an Orioles single-season record.Kansas City pulled even in the sixth on Brian Goodwin’s base hit, then took the lead when Rosell Herrera shrugged off a 3-for-31 slump with an RBI single.The game went back-and-forth one more time after that.“It’s just closing. There’s pressure in different situations. There’s finality in that inning,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of their fateful ninth. “It’s a great job if you’re good at it.”BUNDY IS BETTERBundy wound up allowing three runs on eight hits and a walk in 5 1/3 innings. He also struck out eight in his best performance in about three weeks. “Yeah, I thought so too,” he said. “Still got room to improve http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authent...ncy-jersey , obviously, but the breaking pitches were a little bit sharper.”MINOR LEAGUE DEALThe Royals announced a two-year extension with Idaho Falls to remain their rookie-level farm club in the Pioneer League. Eleven current members of the big league club played for the Chukars.ROYALS MOVESThe Royals, who traded C Drew Butera to Colorado on Friday, recalled C Meibrys Viloria from Class-A Wilmington. C Salvador Perez has been dealing with a sprained thumb, and Cam Gallagher is the only other catcher on the 40-man roster. Viloria was hitting .260 with six homers at Wilmington.ORIOLES MOVESBaltimore recalled INF Breyvic Valera from Triple-A Norfolk, and he’ll join the club in time for Sunday’s game. Valera appeared in one game with the Orioles last month, going 1 for 4, after arriving as part of the July 18 trade of Manny Machado to the Dodgers.TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: OF/DH Mark Trumbo (right knee inflammation) will have arthroscopic surgery in Baltimore http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authent...ing-jersey , manager Buck Showalter said. It is expected to take place Thursday or Friday.Royals: LHP Eric Skoglund (sprained UCL) was due to make a rehab start with Triple-A Omaha on Saturday night. Skoglund (1-5, 6.70 ERA) has been out since late May.UP NEXTRHP Jorge Lopez (0-3, 7.90 ERA), part of a late-July trade with Milwaukee, tries again for his first win for the Royals when he faces Orioles RHP David Hess (3-8, 5.08) in the series finale Sunday.

Much like the Philadelphia Phillies http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authe...rth-jersey , Vince Velasquez has struggled since early August. The right-hander will be on the mound Saturday night as the Phillies face the Miami Marlins in the second game of a three-game series in Philadelphia. Velasquez will try to help the Phillies win their first series since Aug. 5 — which also came against the Marlins at Citizens Bank Park.Velasquez (9-11, 4.30 ERA) has a 6.66 ERA and a 1.644 WHIP over his last six starts, and opponents have a .900 OPS against him in that stretch. The Phillies are 2-4 in those outings, and they’ve fallen out of the playoff race with a 12-23 record over the last six weeks. Article continues below ...Philadelphia beat Miami 14-2 on Friday. With 16 games remaining, the Phillies are 7 1/2 games behind the first-place Atlanta Braves in the National League East and five games back of the St. Louis Cardinals in the race for the second NL wild-card spot.Velasquez gave up five runs on seven hits in four-plus innings against the New York Mets last Sunday on a rainy afternoon at Citi Field. It marked the fifth time in six starts that Velasquez has gone four innings or fewer.“I was missing spots kind of the whole game and the conditions got the best of me,” Velasquez told the Delaware County Daily Times after the outing. “I can’t let that happen.”Velasquez has a 2-1 record and a 2.08 ERA in three starts against the Marlins this season. The 26-year-old is 4-2 with a 2.57 ERA and 1.000 WHIP in nine starts against Miami in his career.The Marlins were not sure who would start on Saturday as of Friday night. Manager Don Mattingly said it would likely be a bullpen game with the team playing its sixth contest in five days.The Phillies are hoping their offense from Friday night carries over to Saturday against whichever pitcher the Marlins use.The 14 runs they plated were the most since a 17-5 win over the Pirates on July 6. The Phillies hit five homers on Friday night, including a pair by Aaron Altherr and the 31st of the season by Rhys Hoskins.“Big night for Rhys, and really up and down the lineup, we got contributions Bryce Harper Jersey ,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said after Friday’s win. “I thought we had a good offensive approach all night.”Hoskins, who was starting at first base for just the third time this season on Friday, has four homers and seven RBIs in his last six games. He is now hitting .253 with an .868 OPS this season, and Hoskins’ 31 homers tied him for the eighth-most in the National League.Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto hit his team-leading 21st homer of the season Friday night. It improves on a career-high for Realmuto, who has 71 RBIs.Miami (57-90) has lost six of its last seven games, and the team has hit the 90-loss mark for the first time since finishing 71-91 in 2015. Philadelphia, meanwhile, is 10-7 this year against the Marlins, and the franchise has hit 75 wins for the first time since finishing 81-81 in 2012. WASHINGTON (AP) — In what could be one of his final games for the Nationals Stephen Strasburg Jersey , Bryce Harper added another accomplishment to his impressive resume.Anthony Rendon homered and drove four runs, Harper reached 100 RBIs in a season for the first time and Washington beat the Miami Marlins 7-3.Juan Soto and Matt Wieters also homered for the Nationals, who broke it open with four runs on three pitches in the fourth inning.Harper started the big inning, driving in his 100th run with a sacrifice fly that scored Adam Eaton and put Washington ahead 3-1.“I think for me it’s just going out there and trying to score runs and doing the things I can. If I can get to 100 runs, 100 walks and 100 RBIs, it’s pretty cool,” said Harper, who has 126 walks and 99 runs scored. “I’ll take that any day of the week.”His previous high was 99 RBIs in 2015, when he won the NL MVP Award. Harper http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authe...lez-jersey , a pending free agent, got a standing ovation from the sparse, rain-soaked crowd and congratulations from his teammates.Asked if he’s thought about this possibly being his final home series at Nationals Park, Harper said: “I think for me if I’m worried about that, I’m not worried about my at-bats that night or the game. I’ve got two more games at home and we’ll see what happens on Wednesday.”After Harper’s milestone, Rendon and Soto homered back-to-back on the next two pitches from Sandy Alcantara (2-2). Rendon lofted a two-run shot down the left-field line, and Soto lined one into the visitors’ bullpen in left-center to make it 6-1.Rendon extended his on-base streak to 32 games, the longest active streak in the majors.“He’s Mr. Steady,” manager Dave Martinez said of Rendon Anthony Rendon Jersey , who has 23 homers and 87 RBIs in 131 games. “His all-around game, defense, offense, he’s the guy that keeps our offense together.”Justin Miller (7-1) allowed one unearned run in the fifth in relief of Stephen Strasburg, who was pulled after throwing 100 pitches over four innings. Strasburg gave up a run on three hits and four walks while striking out five and hitting a batter.Strasburg hasn’t lost since returning from the disabled list on Aug. 22.Peter O’Brien had two hits for Miami, which had won three straight. The Marlins left 10 men on base, five in the first two innings.“Yeah we had a lot of chances,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “(Strasburg) threw close to 40 (pitches) in the first and had guys out there. Even after they score we still got guys out there, have a chance to get right back in it there and not able to do anything.”Alcantara allowed six runs on seven hits and five walks in four innings.The Nationals trailed 1-0 in the first when Rendon’s double scored Eaton and Harper.QUOTABLE“It’s sad that he doesn’t get the recognition that he should as one of the best third basemen in the game. I think it’s not fair because he definitely is a big-time player — a superstar player — every single day” — Harper on Rendon.TRAINER’S ROOMMarlins: Mattingly expects RHP Jose Urena http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authe...phy-jersey , who experienced leg cramps last time out, to make his next scheduled start Friday in New York. “He ran yesterday,” Mattingly said. “It looks like he’s going to be fine. He’s getting an extra day (Thursday) anyway. I think he’ll start.”Nationals: RHP Tanner Roark went home Sunday to be with his wife after the recent birth of their third child. He is still slated to start Wednesday.UP NEXTMarlins: RHP Jeff Brigham (0-3, 5.84) makes his fourth major league start and first against Washington.Nationals: RHP Max Scherzer (17-7, 2.57) needs 10 strikeouts to reach 300 for the season. He’s 4-0 with a 2.67 ERA against the Marlins in 2018.

The Boston Red Sox haven't been playing their best baseball of late http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authen...olz-jersey , but they remain favorites to win the 2018 World Series.OddsShark posted the latest Fall Classic odds Monday, with Boston coming in at +350 (7-2) to win the title. The Red Sox have an MLB-best 98-46 record and have spent most of the regular season lapping their competition.The defending champion Houston Astros come in just behind Boston at +400 (4-1). Those are far and away the two best odds, as the Chicago Cubs are the National League favorites at +650 (13-2).All it takes is one look at run differentials to see why Boston and Houston are the favorites. The Astros have outscored their opponents by an MLB-best 239 runs. The Red Sox are 20 runs behind that number at 219, and no other team in baseball is better than plus-150 (New York Yankees).The Los Angeles Dodgers lead the NL in run differential and are +700 (7-1) to win the World Series despite being in danger of missing the playoffs. The Dodgers are 0.5 games behind the Colorado Rockies for first place in the NL West and would not win a wild-card spot if the season ended today. They are one game behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second wild card.The Cardinals and Arizona Diamondbacks probably represent the best dice-roll odds. St. Louis is +2600 (26-1) despite being a wild-card team at the moment. The Diamondbacks are +2200 (22-1) and are only 2.5 games out of first place in the NL West.The Cardinals and Atlanta Braves have the exact same record (79-64), but Atlanta is +1200 (12-1) and has only scored 20 more runs this season than St. Louis.Colorado is probably the worst bet on the board at +1400 (14-1), given the team has been outscored this season (minus-11 run differential) and feels likelier to miss the playoffs than make a deep run. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Playing with a sore hand and a banged-up left leg, the Oakland Athletics‘ Jed Lowrie would be the first to confirm that winning ugly is way better than losing.Lowrie homered and moved over 1,000 hits for his career, and the Oakland Athletics held on for an 8-7 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday, their ninth win in 11 games.Lowrie took no issue with a potential blowout turning into a nail-biter, a rare occurrence for Oakland’s bullpen.“Who cares?” Lowrie said. “We won.”The A’s took the series against the Angels by winning the last two games. Oakland, which currently occupies the second AL wild-card spot, moved within 2 ½ games of first-place Houston in the AL West. The Astros have lost four straight.Oakland is now 36-12 over its last 48 games Aaron Altherr Jersey , the second-best record in baseball over that stretch, behind the Boston Red Sox. The A’s have taken 13 of their past 16 series.Angels manager Mike Scioscia went with a bullpen day, but the strategy backfired when reliever Taylor Cole (0-3), making his first career start, allowed three runs on three hits in 1 1/3 innings.“It becomes more of a ‘Who’s fresh?’ game than a matchup game with the bullpen,” Scioscia said. “You try to do your best to put guys in good spots, but right now we’re not there. We’re looking at whoever’s available to give us innings. We try to line ’em up as best we can, but we’re not as efficient as it is if you have the functionality of having starters get to a certain point in the game, which right now we just don’t have.”Lowrie doubled to left field in Oakland’s three-run first inning, giving him 1,000 hits over 11 seasons. It was also the 250th double of his career. Lowrie’s 1001st career hit was his 18th homer this season, a two-run shot during a four-run fourth for the A’s.“It was a lot of hard work that has gone into (1,000 hits),” said Lowrie http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authen...ley-jersey , who took a grounder off his hand early in Sunday’s game and has spent the last month recovering from a bone bruise in his left leg. “It’s one of those big round numbers that is exciting and memorable, so it’s a pretty special moment.”Marcus Semien had three hits for the A’s and reached base four times, a day after hitting a pair of home runs. Lowrie also had a walk as he reached base three times.Los Angeles trailed by as many as four but pulled within a run in the eighth inning on Shohei Ohtani’s two-run single off Jeurys Familia. Blake Treinen struck out the side in the ninth for his 30th save in 34 opportunities. A’s pitchers matched a season high with 16 strikeouts.Rookie Francisco Arcia homered for the Angels. The homer, his third, came one day after Arcia pitched a scoreless mop-up inning. Justin Upton had two hits for the Angels, including an eighth-inning double that gave him an extra-base hit in five consecutive games.A’s starter Trevor Cahill allowed four runs on seven hits with a walk over 4 2/3 innings.“I think it was the first game this year when I didn’t have my changeup, which has been kind of my go-to and my savoir, especially if the fastball command isn’t there,” Cahill said.Fernando Rodney (4-2) pitched a scoreless inning in relief to earn his first victory for the A’s. Rodney has two scoreless innings with Oakland after being acquired from the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.“Today is a day when you need a guy like him,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “We feel like we have a deep ‘pen, but on days like this is when you need an extended bullpen with that kind of depth.”OHTANI ON TRACKScioscia reiterated Sunday that he expects Ohtani to pitch again this season. While the two-way rookie from Japan has returned to designated-hitter duties, he has not pitched since June 6 because of a sprained right elbow ligament.Ohtani will have what will amount to a medium-intensity bullpen session Monday in San Diego, where the Angels will open a three-game series. He would then work higher-intensity bullpens, followed by pitching to hitters Richie Ashburn Jersey , before his return.Scioscia would not specify when he expects Ohtani to pitch again, but the likelihood is mid-to-late September.“The goal is pitching again this year and we feel that is attainable,” Scioscia said.TRAINER’S ROOMAngels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (left adductor strain) returned to the 10-day disabled list following his rough outing Saturday, when he gave up seven runs on 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings against the A’s. … SS Andrelton Simmons was a late scratch from the lineup with left knee soreness and is day-to-day. … C Rene Rivera (arthroscopic knee surgery) was expected to play in a game at Single-A Inland Empire on Sunday and Monday, with the Angels hoping he can return to the active roster during the upcoming road trip to San Diego, Texas and Arizona.UP NEXTA’s: LHP Sean Manaea (10-8, 3.50 ERA) will take the mound Monday at home against the Seattle Mariners, having lasted just 2 2/3 innings in a start against the Los Angeles Dodgers last week.Angels: LHP Andrew Heaney (7-7, 3.96 ERA) will start Monday at San Diego, his first career appearance against the Padres.

CHICAGO — On a day when a national report suggested that his job might be in jeopardy should his Chicago Cubs not make a lengthy postseason run this fall Miguel Gonzalez Jersey , manager Joe Maddon characterized the lineup he has planned for Wednesday as “interesting.”But before Maddon can unveil that lineup, his team heads into Wednesday with some unfinished business against the New York Mets. Heavy rains suspended Tuesday’s game with the Cubs and Mets knotted 1-1 in the top of the 10th inning. The game was suspended following a 53-minute delay and will resume at noon CT on Wednesday. The originally scheduled series finale will begin 45 minutes following the conclusion of the suspended game. Article continues below ...The Cubs will enter Wednesday having won six straight games and in position to maintain their current lead in the National League Central. Chicago’s success made Tuesday’s news surrounding Maddon’s future even more head-scratching. Maddon characterized a USA Today report surrounding his job security as “dumb” and told reporters he would like to continue with the Cubs beyond 2019 when his current contract is up. For now, Maddon is focused on the business at hand and called the conjecture in the USA Today report “uninteresting.”“I’m under contract,” Maddon told reporters Tuesday, according to the Chicago Tribune. “I’m very happy with what I’m doing. When the time is appropriate, I’m sure we’ll discuss it further, but I don’t really understand (the report).”Once Tuesday’s game is concluded, Cubs’ right-hander Alec Mills (0-0, 1.71) will make his second major league start in the series finale. Mills was solid in his big-league debut when he allowed just one run and three hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Cincinnati Reds. Now, with the pressure of pitching in the majors out of the way, Mills will attempt to settle in Wednesday against the Mets. “Any time you can get something under your belt and get more used to it, it’s better,” Mills said this week http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authen...son-jersey , according to the Tribune. “…The guys here are very welcoming. It makes it easier to feel like you fit in and deserve to be here.”Mills admitted to reporters that nerves were a factor in his starting debut last week. And although his stuff many not be overpowering, he has to work with what he has.“I got to beat (hitters) early,” Mills said.On Tuesday, the Mets shipped outfielder Jose Bautista the Phillies to allow the veteran slugger to go to a contending team. General manager John Ricco told reporters that the deal was done more to “do right by Jose” rather than about what the Mets got in return. After New York signed Bautista in May, he hit .204 with nine home runs in 83 games. Now, after dealing him on Tuesday, the Mets will give Brandon Nimmo, Michael Conforto and Dominic Smith more consistent playing time in the outfield.But they do so without losing sight of what Bautista did.“He came to us when we had some injuries and needed some stability,” Ricco told reporters, according to the team’s official website. “He’s not only provided that but did a lot more.”Jason Vargas (4-8, 6.96) will start for the Mets. Vargas has won his last two starts and is coming off an impressive six-inning outing against the Washington Nationals in which he did not allow a run and surrendered just three hits while striking out eight. Vargas is 2-0 with a 4.35 ERA in five career starts against the Cubs. The final divisional series participant will be determined Wednesday at Yankee Stadium, as the New York Yankees host the Oakland Athletics in the American League Wild Card game.Unlike the frantic pace the National League teams played at the last two days, the Yankees and Athletics had two days off between the end of the regular season and the one-game playoff.After the AL Wild Card winner is determined http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authen...ada-jersey , the National League Divisional Series begins Thursday, with the Colorado Rockies, who beat the Chicago Cubs in 13 innings Tuesday, facing the Milwaukee Brewers and the Atlanta Braves squaring off against the Los Angeles Dodgers.The Dodgers could be seen as the favorite to win the NL pennant because of their sustained success this decade and their World Series appearance from a year ago.However, the Brewers appear to have all the pieces in place to make a serious run at the championship, while the young Braves enter with no fear, and the Rockies are riding a wave of momentum following Tuesday's Wild Card win.Updated Playoff Odds (via OddsShark)AL Wild-Card Game (Wednesday, October 3)Oakland (+120; Bet $100 to win $120)) at New York Yankees (-140; Bet $140 to win $100)NLDS (Thursday, October 4)Colorado at Milwaukee (Odds not available)Atlanta (+180) at Los Angeles (-210)PredictionsYankees over AthleticsIt's been difficult for some teams in the Wild Card games to benefit off home-field advantage,and the Cubs were the latest example of that Tuesday.However, Yankee Stadium has a different vibe to it during the postseason, and it's one the home team should feed off in the first few innings against the Athletics.It also helps the Yankees that Luis Severino, who went 19-8 in the regular season Welington Castillo Jersey , is taking the mound for the game.The 24-year-oldis 22-13 in his career at Yankee Stadium with an ERA of 3.68 and 287 strikeouts in 46 starts.Frank Franklin II/Associated PressThe one thing Severino must focus on against Oakland is keeping the ball down because one mistake up in the strike zone could lead to a game-changing home run.Severino hasn't achieved a ton of success against the A's in his career, as he's 1-1 with a 5.23 ERA in four starts, but he's only given up one home run in 20.2 innings.Oakland's Liam Hendriks is making his first career postseason start, but he isn't the traditional playoff starting pitcher.The 29-year-old is a reliever who has pitched two innings in a game twice this season, which means we'll see some sort of platoon pitching out of the Athletics.Ben Margot/Associated PressWhile that strategy could work, it doesn't give the pitchers an opportunity to settle into a rhythm on the mound, like Severino will have.By platooning the pitching staff, Oakland manager Bob Melvin might not be able to get the matchup he wants for every key at-bat, which opens the door for one of the Yankees' many home-run hitters to make a difference.With an opportunity to face the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS facing them, the Yankees will come out motivated at home and jump on the Oakland pitching staff early.The lead provided by the likes of Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge will allow Severino to work with less stress and shut down Oakland's lineup.Once Severino gives way to the Yankees' bullpen, the game will be out of reach and the Yankees will win their second straight Wild Card game.Brewers over RockiesIt's hard to pick against the Milwaukee Brewers in the NLDS given the run they've been on.Milwaukee won its final seven regular-season games and then captured the NL Central tiebreaker over the Cubs Monday afternoon.Christian Yelich, who has 36 home runs and 110 RBI while hitting .326, seems like an unstoppable force that the Rockies' pitching staff is going to have a tough time containing.Morry Gash/Associated PressYelich isn't the only threat in the Milwaukee lineup http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-...ton-jersey , as Travis Shaw and Jesus Aguilar both mashed over 30 home runs and Lorenzo Cain hit .308 at the top of the order.Milwaukee's bullpen has been as impressive as its lineup, with Josh Hader and his 143 strikeouts leading the way.If the Brewers enter the seventh inning with a lead in any of the NLDS games, it's going to be hard for the Rockies to come back.As for the Rockies, they have one day off before taking on the Brewers and won't have their first- or second-choice starter available for the games in Milwaukee.German Marquez and Kyle Freeland started the NL West tiebreaker and NL Wild Card game to get the Rockies to this point, which means they're likely starters at home in Games 3 and 4.Although they're at a disadvantage stamina-wise since Milwaukee will play Game 1 on two days' rest, the Rockies enter Miller Park with plenty of confidence, and that could spur an unlikely road win.The Rockies will play the Brewers tough, but Milwaukee will overpower its NLDS foe with its lineup and move on to the NLCS.Dodgers over BravesThe youth-versus-experience angle fits the Atlanta-Los Angeles NLDS perfectly.The Braves are making the first of what they hope is many playoff appearances led by the young core of Ronald Acuna, Dansby Swanson and Ozzie Albies.Atlanta will try to get off to a fast start behind ace Mike Foltynewicz, who went 13-10 and struck out 202 batters in the regular season.Los Angeles is countering with the combination of Hyun-Jun Ryu and Clayton Kershaw for Games 1 and 2 at Dodger Stadium.Ross D. Franklin/Associated PressWith their pitchers expected to limit the Braves to one or two runs, the Dodgers will try to break games open with the middle of their order.Max Muncy, Manny Machado, Yasmani Grandal Joey Votto Jersey , Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig are all capable of setting the tone in their first at-bat with a hit that drives in multiple runs, and the Dodgers have players in Joc Pederson and Justin Turner who are two of the best at getting on base for their power hitters.Silencing the entire Dodgers order is going to be a tough task for Foltynewicz and the Atlanta pitching staff, but if they can somehow win one game in Los Angeles, they might be able to contend in the series.Until proved otherwise, the Dodgers have to be favored in the series because of their power up and down the lineup, an impressive bullpen led by Kenley Jansen and the most playoff experience of any team in the NL.Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90.Statistics obtained from Baseball Reference.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Leave it to Antonio Senzatela to end Colorado’s longest scoring drought this season with his first hit in nearly five months.The right-hander pitched a pretty good game Jay Bruce Jersey , too.Senzatela pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning and also hit a two-run single as the Rockies topped the San Francisco Giants 3-2 on Sunday and moved back into first place in the NL West.Colorado jumped a half-game in front of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost 5-0 at St. Louis on Sunday night.“I knew they were big moments but I just really tried to stay in the moment and execute my pitches and then roll with it,” Senzatela said. “That at-bat I just tried to put the ball in play and I did. I got a good result and I helped the team to win.”The Rockies, blanked the previous two days, avoided a three-game sweep.Colorado also improved to 41-34 on the road this season, tying the franchise record for wins away from Coors Field set in 2009 and matched in 2017.Ian Desmond added two hits and DJ LeMahieu had a sacrifice fly for Colorado.The Rockies scored three times in the second against Dereck Rodriguez (6-4).Senzatela (5-6) pitched out of jams in the second and third, and left after giving up a single and a walk to open the sixth. The right-hander allowed one run and struck out five with two walks for his first win since July 28.“He’s still growing as a pitcher http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/au...ney-jersey ,” Colorado manager Bud Black said. “He’s still learning a lot. What we like about him is just the competitive streak he has and the toughness.”Four relievers finished, with Wade Davis retiring three batters for his NL-leading 40th save.The Rockies snapped their longest scoring drought this season in the second after a one-out error by first baseman Austin Slater.Desmond singled and Rodriguez walked Chris Iannetta to load the bases. Senzatela followed with his second hit of the season, a single to left. After Charlie Blackmon walked, LeMahieu hit a sacrifice fly to make it 3-0.Black called Senzatela’s single the biggest hit of the series for Colorado. Senzatela’s only other hit this season was on April 27 at Miami.“We had those opportunities on Friday and Saturday but we couldn’t capitalize,” Black said. “Today we did and ironically it’s just the pitcher.”Chris Shaw had a two-out RBI single in the sixth for the Giants.Slater singled in Joe Panik in the eighth to make it 3-2.Rodriguez allowed five hits and one earned run in six innings.“It’s a tough one to lose when you’re getting pitching like that,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. “We had some chances but we took a series. You try to take something from that and hopefully carry that into the next one.”ROOKIE LUCKRodriguez has yielded three runs or fewer in all 11 of his starts at AT&T Park this season. He has received two runs or fewer in support in his last four starts overall. “I just go out and throw the best game I can regardless of what’s happening offensively,” Rodriguez said. “The rest I let it take care of itself.”ODDS AND ENDSColorado has not been swept on the road this season. . The Giants lost to the Rockies for only the second time in the last eight home games between the two division opponents. . San Francisco 2B Joe Panik is hitting .364 (12 for 33) in his last 11 games. .

RHP Seunghwa Oh (hamstring) threw in the bullpen and could be available to pitch at some point on the road trip.Giants: 1B Brandon Belt remains day to day with a sore right knee.UP NEXTRockies: RHP Jon Gray (11-7, 4.80 ERA) pitches against the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Monday. Gray is 4-0 in 11 starts since returning from the minors.Giants: LHP Andrew Suarez (6-11, 4.33) faces the San Diego Padres on Monday in the opening game of San Francisco’s final road trip this season. Suarez’s 121 strikeouts are the 10th-most by a rookie starter in franchise history.__ CHICAGO (AP) — White Sox manager Rick Renteria was released from a Minnesota hospital on Tuesday after undergoing tests following an episode of lightheadedness.The 56-year-old Renteria was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center before Monday night’s 8-5 victory over the Twins. Renteria will return to Chicago on Wednesday and undergo further testing at Rush University Medical Center, according to the team.Bench coach Joe McEwing spoke with Renteria before Tuesday’s matchup with Minnesota.“Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family,” said McEwing David Wright Jersey , who is running the team while Renteria is gone. “He sounds good. He’s a very tough individual.”The White Sox also scratched All-Star first baseman Jose Abreu from their lineup for Tuesday’s game against Minnesota. The team says Abreu is being treated for lower abdomen pain after complaining of discomfort when he arrived at the ballpark.White Sox outfielder Leury Garcia was placed on the 10-day disabled with a Grade 2 strain of his left hamstring.

ATLANTA (AP) — Braves manager Brian Snitker gave most of his everyday players some time off a day after Atlanta clinched the NL East.Lane Adams took advantage of a rare opportunity.“You see the fun the starters have day in and day out http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authe...ley-jersey ,” Adams said. “When I saw my name in the lineup I just wanted to go out, have fun, enjoy it and take it in because this is a special group, a special crowd and a special time for this organization.”Adams homered and drove in two runs, Anibal Sanchez won for the first time in nine starts and the Atlanta Braves used a lineup of reserves to win their fifth straight game, 2-1 over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.The loss dropped Philadelphia from postseason contention. Atlanta, the first NL team to qualify for the playoffs, eliminated the Phillies from the division race on Saturday. The Braves have the second-best record among NL division leaders at 88-68 and could earn home-field advantage in the NL Division Series with a strong performance during the final week of the regular season.The Braves mostly rested their regulars against ace Aaron Nola (16-6). Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis each had one at-bat in Atlanta’s final home game before walking off the field to standing ovations before the start of the second.“Everybody deserved it, but they’re the two guys that have posted up every day,” Snitker said. “They’re on a 162-game pace and kind of our guts. So I thought that was pretty cool they got to get recognized. It was very well deserved.”Among the other regulars to make an appearance, Ozzie Albies grounded out as a pinch-hitter in the fifth and Ronald Acuna Jr. flew out as a pinch-hitter in the eighth.Adams, filling in for center fielder Ender Inciarte, had an RBI double in the second and hit his second homer in the fifth.Sanchez (7-6) further secured his role as Atlanta’s No. 3 starter for the division series behind Mike Foltynewicz and Kevin Gausman, allowing four hits Trea Turner Jersey , one run and one walk in five innings. Sanchez won for the first time since Aug. 3 and has a 3.09 ERA over that span.“He’s been huge,” Snitker said. “What a great story that is. As far as being a complete pitcher and executing pitches, it’s pretty good. There’s a lot of knowledge there. He’s been doing it a long time and he’s been successful.”Scott Kingery’s eighth homer for Philadelphia tied it at 1-all in the third. The Phillies were swept in a four-game series in Atlanta for the first time since 1997.Nola gave up four hits, two runs and one walk with six strikeouts in six innings. He has surrendered nine homers in five starts this month and is 1-3 with a 4.55 ERA over that span.Nola wants to make one final start, giving him 33 for the season, as Philadelphia tries to finish above .500.“I think just going forward, everybody has confidence in each other,” he said. “To finish the year out strong is important to us.”Reliever Max Fried allowed three baseunners in the sixth and seventh for Atlanta. Sam Freeman faced the minimum in the eighth.Shane Carle pitched a shaky ninth to earn his first career save in two chances. He walked two batters and hit Kingery with a pitch before Wilson Ramos grounded out to end it.LOOKING AHEADPhillies manager Gabe Kapler said the team is committed to playing young talent like Kingery, J.P. Crawford, Odubel Herrera and Aaron Altherr in the final week. Veterans like Asdrubal Cabrera and Ramos who were acquired for the playoff run will be used in reserve roles. Kapler added that catcher Jorge Alfaro will play every day if his mild right quadriceps strain isn’t a bother.SOLID YEARNola has fallen off in September, but he’s still having a career-best season. He avoided injuries to surpass 200 innings for the first time and ranks second in the NL with a 2.45 ERA.BENCH QUESTIONSAtlanta has been waiting for Adam Duvall, who went 1-for-3 Sunday, to seize the role as the team’s primary source of right-handed power off the bench. But he’s been a bust, hitting .104 with no RBIs in 31 games http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authe...ers-jersey , a span 48 at-bats, since coming over in a trade with Cincinnati.DROUGHT ENDSSanchez got his first hit since April 9, 2014, a span of 54 at-bats, with a single in the third. He crossed first base with his arms in the air as the Braves’ dugout celebrated.ATTENDANCEThe Braves, playing their last regular-season home game, announced 2,555,782 tickets sold. Their home average of 31,519 fans ranks 12th in the majors in just the second season at SunTrust Park. The Braves have been better on the road (45-30) than at home (43-38).UP NEXTPhillies RHP Zach Eflin (11-7, 4.09 ERA) will try to win his third straight start as Philadelphia opens a four-game series Monday at Colorado. The Braves are off Monday and begin a three-game series Tuesday at the New York Mets with RHP Touki Toussaint (2-1, 4.30 ERA) on the mound. PHOENIX — The Los Angeles Dodgers ruined Arizona’s season.The Diamondbacks could do a little something about it this week.The Dodgers knocked Arizona out of first place in the NL West with three consecutive comeback victories on the first weekend of September, winning all three on their final at-bat by the same score, 3-2.Article continues below ...The Diamondbacks are 5-17 since as they prepare to host the division-leading Dodgers in a three-game series that begins Monday at Chase Field.“I feel like that was an extremely tough series … to give everything you have … this team was invested and we were in first place Joe Blanton Jersey , talking about good things happening at the end of this road,” Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said.“It definitely staggered us. Have we recovered? I would like to say we did, but our play has told us that we have not.”The Diamondbacks left that series in third place, and the Dodgers climbed back into first with a three-game sweep of Colorado last week. The Dodgers (87-69) will bring a 1 1/2-game lead over the Rockies into final week of the season and also are only one game behind Atlanta for possible home field advantage in the first round of the playoffs.“There were a couple more gut punches in that Atlanta series that may have been some key blows,” said Lovullo referring a series in which the Diamondbacks lost three of four the weekend after playing the Dodgers.“It was a lot to absorb. The L.A. series is one that maybe a lot of people will see as a target.”Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw (8-5, 2.45) is scheduled to oppose Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray (6-2, 3.92) in the first game of the series. Kershaw has made 14 straight quality starts.While the Dodgers are contending for a playoff spot, there will be no lack of motivation on the Arizona side.“It is hard to say you are going to pay people back in sports, because they are gifted athletes, too,” Lovullo said. “But we should make it as hard on them as possible to do what they are trying to do. “That will be my message to the guys. I certainly don’t want to see any team celebrate on our turf. I watched it last year and it was painful, and I don’t want to watch it again. We’ll make sure we give everything we have the next several days.”The Dodgers swept the Diamondbacks in the NLDS last season, finishing if off in Arizona.The Dodgers have won 15 of 22 games and have won nine of their last 11.They have a franchise season record 225 homers, setting the mark on newcomer Manny Machado’s homer Saturday night.“We have great hitters here Howie Kendrick Jersey ,” Machado told reporters Saturday. “We’re all confident. We know the team we have.”Machado, who had another homer Sunday, had one of the Dodgers’ four homers in the critical series against Arizona at the first of the month. Matt Kemp won the third game of the series with a three-run homer in the eighth inning Sept. 1, and his two-run walkoff double ended the Sept. 2 game.Kershaw will have one more start remaining after this unless the Dodgers have clinched a playoff berth by next weekend and opt to juggle the rotation to prepare for the playoffs. If Kershaw does make two starts, he could put himself high on the ERA leaderboard because he is only 11 2/3 innings short of qualifying. The Mets’ Jacob deGrom has a 1.77 ERA and will win the title, but Kershaw could nose out Aaron Nola (2.45) and Max Scherzer (2.57) for second.Kershaw has won his last five decisions and has not lost since July 21, when Milwaukee scored three unearned runs in a 4-2 victory. He has a 2.22 ERA during his string of 14 quality start and has faced the Diamondbacks four times this season, going 1-1 with a 2.42 ERA.Ray has won his last three decisions over 12 starts and has not lost since July 12. He has given up three runs or less in each of his last nine starts and two runs or less in eight of them. He is coming off a 9-0 victory over the Cubs in which he gave up one hit and struck out eight in six innings.Ray has faced the Dodgers once this season, a 3-1 victory on Aug. 30 in the first game of that series in Los Angeles. He is 7-3 with a 2.63 ERA against them in 14 career starts, the most he has faced any opponent.
