CHICAGO (AP) -- With the wind blowing out on a warm Saturday at Wrigley Field Christian Vazquez Jersey , the San Diego Padres and Chicago Cubs appeared to be headed for a wild finish.Then Chicago's bullpen took over.Steve Cishek, Brandon Kintzler and Pedro Strop combined for 3 1/3 perfect innings in relief of Kyle Hendricks, and the Cubs held off the Padres for a 5-4 win."It didn't look like a one-run ballgame the way they were pitching," Hendricks said. "Coming in attacking the strike zone and making huge pitches when they had to, that was awesome to see."Cishek replaced Hendricks after Austin Hedges' sacrifice fly trimmed Chicago's lead to 5-4 with two out in the sixth. With a runner on third, Cishek retired Freddy Galvis on a grounder to second.Cishek then worked the seventh and Brandon Kintzler got three outs before Strop earned his seventh save."It was a tough day to pitch here," Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo said. "We scored early and we hung on."Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber homered during Chicago's five-run second inning. Jason Heyward added three hits and drove in a run for the NL Central leaders.Hendricks (8-9) allowed five hits, struck out seven and walked none in his second straight win.San Diego became the first team in the NL with 70 losses. Hedges homered for the second straight day, and Manuel Margot doubled in a run.Padres right-hander Walker Lockett (0-2) allowed five runs and nine hits in five innings. Lockett started in place of Joey Lucchesi http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-fred-lynn-jersey , who was scratched on Friday because of an illness.Lucchesi was able to do his pregame work on Saturday and was sent back to the team hotel as a precaution. The left-hander is expected to start on Sunday.Schwarber led off the big second with his 20th homer. Addison Russell added a two-out RBI single and Rizzo followed with a drive to center for his 17th of the season, making it 4-0 Cubs. Heyward capped the five-run burst with an RBI single."I just let the game speed up on me a little bit on me and got a little fast out there," said Lockett, who was making his second start and third major league appearance.San Diego was hitless before closing the gap with a three-run fourth. Travis Jankowski led off with a bunt single, advanced to second on Hendricks' throwing error and scored on Margot's double. Renfroe hit a sacrifice fly with one out before Hedges connected for his eighth homer.ROSTER MOVESThe Padres put outfielder Wil Myers on the 10-day disabled list with a left foot bone bruise. The move is retroactive to Friday.Outfielder Franmil Reyes was recalled from Triple-A El Paso. Reyes has played 38 games for the Padres this season, batting .221 with six homers and eight RBIs in 104 at-bats.This is Myers' third stint on the DL this season."There's a good amount of swelling still in there, but hopefully, in three to five days I'll turn the corner and start putting pressure on it again," he said.TURNAROUNDStrop had an easy 12-pitch outing after struggling through 26 pitches and giving up two runs on Friday. He got the save after the potential tying run was thrown out at the plate in another 5-4 win for the Cubs."As a reliever Wade Boggs Jersey , you don't have time to be thinking about rough ones," Strop said. "You've got to be able to put those bad ones away sooner than later and focus on the moment."TRAINER'S ROOMCubs: RHP Yu Darvish (triceps and elbow injuries) threw a 55-pitch bullpen session. He said he was pain-free and "very optimistic" about returning to the rotation. He has made just eight starts this season and last pitched on May 20.UP NEXTCubs ace Jon Lester (12-4, 3.22 ERA) looks to bounce back from a recent rough stretch in the finale of the four-game series. The left-hander is 0-2 with a 7.07 ERA in his last three starts. Lucchesi (5-6, 3.74 ERA) goes for the Padres. New York Mets star Yoenis Cespedes is likely headed right back to the disabled list, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post.The left fielder is reportedly "leaning toward season-ending surgery." That would presumably fix the calcification in both his heels, an injury he first discussed Friday. Per Steve Gelbs of SNY, the recovery time is eight to 10 months.Cespedes missed over two months with what was described as a hip injury and then sat out after playing just one game.He met with a foot specialist Monday, perAnthony DiComoof MLB.com, and it's clear the injury will require more attention.Considering the Mets are far out of contention with a 40-57 record entering Tuesday http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-carlton-fisk-jersey , there doesn't seem to be any reason to force Cespedes onto the field. That he is owed $58.5 million over the next two seasons only creates more reason for caution.If the injury requires almost a year of recovery, it's better to get it repaired sooner rather than later.The 32-year-old had been struggling, and his .262 batting average is by far his lowest in four years. He does have nine home runs and 29 RBI in just 38 games, but it wasn't enough to help the Mets much.Though he created some excitement in his return to the field Friday, finishing 2-for-4 with a home run against the New York Yankees, it seems that was just a cameo.Cespedes and the organization will hope the pending procedure can solve the problem and keep him on the field.

The red-hot Tampa Bay Rays turn to their second straight "opener" when they go for the sweep of their three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday at The Trop.Diego Castillo was the reliever starting Saturday's game as Ryan Yarbrough winning his 14th game of the season in relief. Sunday Danny Salazar Jersey , it will be Ryne Stanek, who faced one batter in relief Saturday and Yonny Chirinos is set up to work the long "relief" stint.Whatever manager Kevin Cash does these days seems to be working.Article continues below ...The Rays are 13 games over .500 for the first time in five years. They have won six of their last seven and 15 of their last 18 overall, have won 10 straight at home and are keeping their long shot wild card hopes alive."We're enjoying coming to the field each and every day," a sizzling Kevin Kiermaier, who had two more hits Saturday, told Rays radio after the 10-5 victory that sent the Orioles to their 101st loss of this dreadful season. "We know that we're on the outside looking in right now but if we just coming to the field each and every day and playing the way we have been of late, we can make things really interesting if other teams scuffle down the road."All we can control is us and what we do every day and that's what we're focused on right now and that's why the results have been so good as of late."The Rays have outscored the Orioles 24-7 and struck out 25 Baltimore hitters in the first two games of the series.The Rays (77-64) were supposed to have faced former teammate Alex Cobb, who has come on following a 2-14 start (after signing late). But the veteran right-hander has a blister, pushing him back until Tuesday. Instead, left-hander Josh Rogers (1-1, 4.35 ERA), one of three young pitchers acquired from the New York Yankees in the Zach Britton deal, will make his third major league start.Rogers has worked 10 1/3 innings in two starts and has his first big league win under his belt. There had been talk he would be shut down having reached 150 innings for the season http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-trevor-bauer-jers ey , but he will work Sunday.The Orioles, who had been 8-8 against the Rays heading into this series, are steaming toward the club record of 107 losses and sit at 41-101 with 20 games remaining.David Hess, who was hit in the eye with a football prior to Friday night's game and was seen in the dugout wearing an LSU football helmet after returning from the doctor, worked five innings and took the loss Saturday. He allowed seven hits and six runs -- two earned -- in falling to 3-10 (two of his wins are against Tampa Bay).A nightmarish first inning in the field four unearned runs put the Orioles in the hole Saturday and they never made it back."I like the way he finished," manager Buck Showalter told MASN's post-game show. "We didn't help him very much. I counted four or five errors only one on the board it took him a while to find his step and gain his confidence but I like the way he finished."He dug himself a pretty good hole but didn't sit around feeling sorry for himself."Showalter added, "You can always take something from it but you just gotta not make the same mistakes. It's a problem that a lot of our guys are having it's command of the fastball in the strike zone. You're trying to go in you leak it out over the middle of the plate, you try and go away and you jerk it middle in. You pay for those things but we didn't help him either." The season began poorly for both the Kansas City Royals and the Cincinnati Reds, and then it got worse.The story is the same in both cities. Not enough hitting. Not enough pitching. Certainly not enough bullpen. Veterans that didn't produce, prospects that didn't develop as expected.Now, two franchises that enjoyed major success only a few years ago -- the Royals winning the World Series in 2015, the Reds winning 97 games in 2012 -- can't wait for this season to be over. And, especially Edwin Encarnacion Jersey , for this September to be over.Article continues below ...The Royals and Reds begin a two-game series that's about as meaningless as it gets Tuesday night at Great American Ball Park. The Royals (54-102) already are assured of losing 100 games and finishing last in the AL Central. The Reds (66-91) won't drop that many, but they've been all but doomed to a last-place finish in the NL Central since losing 15 of their first 18 games.Royals left-hander Eric Skoglund (1-5), winless for nearly five months, opposes right-hander Matt Harvey (7-9), a pending free agent who could be making his last start for the Reds.If either club was hoping to salvage a dreadful season with a strong September, it hasn't happened, even with the addition of prospects from the minors.The Reds are 9-13 this month but, glaringly, they've lost eight of 11 as their offense has simply disappeared. They've been one of the majors' best-hitting clubs most of the season -- three of their four starting infielders were chosen for the All-Star Game -- but the Reds have been shut out in four of their last seven games and five of their last nine. And they scored only one run in another of those losses.They finished off a 3-7 road trip in which they were limited to 12 runs by losing to the Miami Marlins 6-0 on Sunday, their third defeat in the four-game series.This isn't the sign of a team that's playing to gain some momentum for the start of next season."It'll be good to get home," said Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman, who still doesn't know his fate for next season. "It's been a long trip. Hopefully we'll be a little energized when we get home and start swinging the bats a little better."The Royals are a more respectable 11-11 in September, but they've dropped six of eight despite splitting a four-game weekend series in Detroit.Skoglund will be facing the Reds for the first time. He hasn't won since April 28 against the Chicago White Sox Andrew Miller Jersey , but he pitched three-hit ball over six scoreless innings in a 2-1 Royals loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates in 11 innings last Tuesday."I felt comfortable out there," Skoglund said. "I was able to make some pitches and just continue to help me build off that confidence-wise. I was able to get through that sixth inning pretty easily. I felt good."He's already been told by Yost he'll get one more start next weekend."Every game I try to take something out of it," Skoglund said. "Try to work and learn and implement everything I can into every situation. I can use this (start) and continue to keep the ball rolling."Harvey is one of the Reds' few pleasant surprises this season, going 7-7 after they acquired him from the New York Mets in early May.He had a rough start his last time out, allowing seven runs on seven hits over 5 1-3 innings in a 7-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday. But Harvey shut out the Chicago Cubs for six innings on Sept. 14, giving up four hits, although he didn't figure in the decision as the Cubs came back to win 3-2.Harvey allowed four runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings of a 4-3 loss at Kansas City for the Mets on April 3, 2016. He also faced the Royals in Game Five of the 2015 World Series when he lobbied to start the ninth with a 2-0 lead but couldn't finish it and the Royals won the title in the 12th. The Reds swept a two-game series in Kansas City earlier in the season, winning 5-1 in 10 innings on June 10 and 7-0 on June 11. For the Royals, those losses came during a stretch in which they lost 15 of 16.

ATLANTA (AP) From the perspective of manager Brian Snitker http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authentic-alex-colome-jers ey , the addition of right-hander Kevin Gausman means the Atlanta Braves added help in all the right places for their push to win the NL East.Snitker applauded four trades made by general manager Alex Anthopoulos."I feel really good," Snitker said. "We talked about what you would like to have, and I think he hit all the boxes. Bullpen depth, starting pitcher, maybe a bat off the bench. I think they did a great job."The Braves acquired Gausman and veteran reliever Darren O'Day from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for four prospects Tuesday. The Braves also added outfielder Adam Duvall, acquired from the Reds late Monday, and relievers Brad Brach and Jonny Venters in the last five days.Atlanta didn't part with any of its top prospects in the process, either.The Orioles acquired Triple-A right-hander Evan Phillips, Class A infielder Jean Carlos Encarnacion and two Double-A prospects catcher Brett Cumberland and left-hander Bruce Zimmerman. Baltimore also received international signing bonus slot money."We're always reluctant to move some of our higher ranked guys," Anthopoulos said. "... We like the guys we lost. There are certain guys that are more high-profile. We didn't go into the trade deadline saying we refuse to move on our top prospects. Certain guys are harder to acquire than others. For the right deal for the right player, we're open to it."The Braves entered Tuesday's trade deadline a half-game behind first-place Philadelphia and five games ahead of third-place Washington in the NL East. The Phillies have also made a push, adding catcher Wilson Ramos and left-hander Aaron Loup on Tuesday after picking up infielder Asdrubal Cabrera last Friday. The Nationals traded away reliever Brandon Kintzler but otherwise stood pat at the deadline."We were just trying to make the team better," Anthopoulos said. "Obviously it's going to be a tight race in the East. Philadelphia made some nice moves. The Nats, we know how talented they are. ... It's going to be tough. We want to win the division, as all the other teams do, but even the wild card is going to be challenging."Duvall joined the team Tuesday and has been designated for a platoon role, with most of his starts coming against left-handers. He'll play left field James Paxton Jersey , with rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. moving to center and Ender Inciarte moving to the bench against left-handers.Duvall, hitting .205 with 15 home runs and 61 RBIs, also gives the team a powerful pinch-hitter.Duvall said the platoon role "doesn't really matter to me.""I'm excited to be here," he said. "However they use me, I'll go in there and do my best and hopefully win some ballgames."O'Day had season-ending surgery on his left hamstring July 12 and was acquired to be part of Atlanta's 2019 bullpen.Gausman, 27, was 5-8 with a 4.43 ERA in 21 games started for Baltimore. He is under team control through 2020."Really excited to go to a team that's playing really well right now, playing meaningful games," Gausman said, adding he was excited about his role after talking with Anthopoulos."I think it's a good fit," Gausman said. "After talking to their GM, I think they really liked me and have some things that can help me."This is the second deal between the teams in three days. Atlanta acquired Brach from Baltimore for an international signing slot Sunday.Gausman adds experience to a rotation that has lost rookie Mike Soroka and right-hander Brandon McCarthy to injuries.Anthopoulos said he didn't feel he had to add a starting pitcher because he likes the depth provided by prospects, including left-hander Kolby Allard, promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett to make his debut Tuesday night against Miami."We were just looking at the right value and the right deal," Anthopoulos said.Allard is expected to be sent back to Gwinnett following Tuesday night's game.-- Masterpress/Getty ImagesDiverging payrolls and franchise histories will frame Wednesday's American League Wild Card Game as a David vs. Goliath tale. Don't fall for it.Hosting the elimination game for the second straight year, the New York Yankees have made a dozen playoff appearances since Michael Lewis publishedMoneyball in 2003. The Oakland Athletics, the franchise that was featured in that bestseller http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-marcell-oz una-jersey , entered 2018 with stunted expectations following three consecutive last-place finishes in the AL West.Despite the self-writing narratives, this is far from an epic mismatch.The Yankees became the first 100-win team relegated to the Wild Card Game since MLB instituted the new format in 2012. Yet the A's also tallied more wins (97) than any prior AL participant. They also brandish more triumphs than any National League squad vying for the Commissioner's Trophy.Oakland may lack New York's deep pockets and championship banners, but it has taken a similar path to the elimination game. For all the unanswered suspense of who will start for each franchise, these teams made it this far because of a strong lineup and loaded bullpen.Those strengths could come in handy against the Boston Red Sox. Only one will earn the chance to take down the 108-win juggernaut in the American League Division Series.AL Wild Card Game: Oakland Athletics at New York YankeesDate: Wednesday, Oct. 3Time: 8:05 p.m. ETTV: TBSLive Stream: TBS Watch Live Yankee Stadium Hosts Another Home Run DerbyAaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton led the Yankees to a record-setting 267 home runs this season.Mike Stobe/Getty ImagesDespite playing seven weeks without superstar slugger Aaron Judge, the Bronx Bombers belted a record-setting 267 home runs. They made the most of Yankee Stadium's cozy dimensions with a .474 slugging percentage and .351weighted on-base average (wOBA) at home.Per MLB.com's Bryan Koch, manager Aaron Boone touted the team's home-field advantage."In a lot of ways, we're built for our ballpark," Boone said. "Our power plays for a lot of our guys, especially our right-handed hitters. They use that right field to their advantage. I think it's played out that we've been a very good team at home. I love the fact that our fans will get to be making the right kind of noise for us."Judge, whose .352/.471/.699 home slash line would make Babe Ruth blush, is one of seven probable starters to notch a wOBA above .367 at home. For context, Francisco Lindor earned a .368 wOBA.By the way, that list doesn't include Giancarlo Stanton, who hit .229 at Yankee Stadium. A far cry from last season's MVP-clinching finish, he batted .213 with five homers in September. Yet there's hope for a strong postseason debut, as the 28-year-old masher went 10-for-23 with four walks Miles Mikolas Jersey , three doubles and three homers during the final week.Know who else will enjoy swinging for the short porch? The A's.According toESPN.com, only Marlins Park and ATT Park were less conduciveto home runs than the Oakland Coliseum. That didn't stop the A's from registering MLB's third-most home runs(227) and fourth-highest slugging percentage (.439).No team earned more long balls (136) and a higher wOBA (.341) on the road than Oakland. After crushing an MLB-best 48 homers鈥攁nd hitting .247 for the fourth straight year鈥擪hris Davis gets a chance to inflict more damage on a national platform.Pay special attention to Matt Chapman, who batted .311/.388/.596 on the road and .309/.371/.591 in the second half. He's also a strong favorite to snag a Gold Glove with an MLB-high 30defensive runs savedfrom the hot corner.While he won't win, the third baseman should appear on most MVP ballots:Baseball Reference baseball_refMatt Chapman is the first Athletics hitter to break 8+ WAR in a season since Jason Giambi in 2001.Before Giambi, the last As hitter to do it was Rickey Henderson in 1990 su4liPtLiX ck5bm6pRNXStephen Piscotty also swung a sizzling bat with eight September homers. While Ramon Laureano arrived far too late to join Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar in the AL Rookie of the Year race, the center fielder amassed a 2.0 WAR in 48 games.One would expect a scoring bonanza if not for all the shutdown relievers waiting in the bullpen.Battle of the BullpensBlake Treinen should make his presence felt from Oaklands bullpen.Abbie Parr/Getty ImagesRemember when the Baltimore Orioles lost 2016's 11-inning Wild Card Game without using closer Zach Britton? That was dumb, and neither New York or Oakland will make the same mistake or sidelining their premier late-inning arms.Then again, Britton is now New York's fifth-best reliever.With Chad Green, David Robertson, Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman at his disposal, Boone could eschew a starter altogether and rely exclusively on his power pitchers. As noted by The Athletic's Marc Carig, the unit set all-time marks in strikeouts per nine (11.4) and WAR (9.7).Joe Girardi yanked Luis Severino one out (and three runs) into the first inning of last year's Wild Card Game.Boone has yet to name his starter as of Monday morning, but expect either Severino, Masahiro Tanaka or J.A. Happ to operate on a similarly short leash with no margin for error.The A's, on the other hand, may not waste any time turning to their bullpen. Per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, "it'sbecoming ever more likely" the team will open with a reliever after testing the tactic with Liam Hendriks late in the season."It's something we've been tinkering with some and trying to take a look and seeing what the best fit is going forward Bud Norris Jersey ," A's manager Bob Melvin said on Saturday.MLB.com's Jane Lee also said they are leaning toward starting Wednesday's game with the 29-year-old reliever:Jane Lee JaneMLBAll signs point to Liam Hendriks opening the game in New York, and I would imagine the A鈥檚 just bullpen their way through the entire game.While Hendriks posted a 4.13 ERA in 24 innings, the 29-year-old righty has thrown 11.2 scoreless innings dating back to Sept. 4. He has allowed six hits and two runs in 8.2 frames as Oakland's opener.Athletics relievers didn't induce whiffs (8.8 K/9) with nearly as much success as the Yankees, but their 3.37 ERA ranked a tick above their opponent for third behind the Houston Astros and Chicago Cubs.The club can thank Blake Treinen, who is having an epic campaign on par with Britton's 2016:Susan Slusser susanslusserCloser Blake Treinen lowers his ERA to 0.78, the lowest in major-leaguehistory among pitchers with a minimum of 75 innings pitched.The 30-year-old has recorded six or more outs in 10 outings, so the question is not if, but for how long, Melvin will deploy his closer.It's not a one-man show. Lou Trivino posted a 2.92 ERA and 82 strikeouts in 74 innings. Jeurys Familia allowed all three runs in the New York Mets' 2016 NL Wild Card Game loss to the San Francisco Giants, but he finished this season wielding a 3.13 ERA and 10.4 K/9.A vital proponent to San Francisco's 2014 title run, Yusmeiro Petit ceded one run in his last 13 outings. He could be quickly called upon to stop any early bleeding in a prolonged outing.Excluding Ryan Yarborough鈥攚ho pitched multiple innings in relief of the Tampa Bay Rays opener鈥攐nly Jesse Chavez (93.1) logged more innings than Petit's 93 from the bullpen.While the Yankees possess the bullpen edge, the A's could narrow the pitching gap by eschewing their patchwork rotation altogether. Each squad will feel an urgency to score early and often.Advanced stats courtesy of FanGraphs unless otherwise noted.

Adrian Beltre was back in Texas Mike Piazza Jersey , still with the Rangers on Wednesday after a road trip that ended on the same day as the non-waiver trade deadline.That doesn't necessarily mean that baseball's active career hits leader will finish this season, the last on his contract and maybe the last of his Hall of Fame-caliber career, with the last-place Rangers.The possibility remains that, in the right situation, Beltre could get dealt to a contending team in August for a shot at finally winning a World Series title."More or less knowing where I'm going to be for the next who knows," Beltre said after the non-waiver deadline passed Tuesday when the Rangers were in Arizona. "I cannot sit here and say 100 percent I'm going to finish the season here, which I'd be happy to do. But you never know what comes up."Beltre, 39 and in his 21st big league season, has been to the World Series only once . That was in 2011, his first season in Texas.Rangers general manager Jon Daniels was in constant contact with the Beltre in the weeks leading up to the non-waiver deadline, letting the veteran third baseman know when other teams inquired about him. Beltre, who could veto any trade, also gave the GM some feedback on the teams that made sense to him and why."If he was going to go somewhere, it was going to be somewhere he could win, but also somewhere he could play and contribute," Daniels said. "He didn't want to be a cheerleader. He was very clear about that. He also was very clear that he didn't want to go somewhere that would lead us to not getting a good deal."Beltre http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-andre-ethier-jers ey , who described the last couple of weeks as "a lot of thinking" and "wait and see," said nothing got close enough for him to have to make a decision. He said there weren't many teams willing to meet his requirements."I didn't want to be a bench player, and it didn't work out," Beltre said, not identifying any potential teams.The Rangers, who swept three games at defending World Series champion Houston before splitting two interleague games in Arizona, had a day off Wednesday before starting a seven-game homestand. They play four games against Baltimore, the opponent when Beltre got his 3,000th career hit last year, and three against Seattle, one of his former teams.Beltre, a four-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glove Award winner, is a .287 career hitter with 3,127 hits and 467 homers. His average this season is the same, .287, with five homers and 33 RBIs in 75 games that include 21 starts as the designated hitter.Like pretty much all Texas players Chase Utley Jersey , Beltre will be put through trade waivers this month. If Beltre is claimed by another team, the Rangers would have two days to work out a deal or pull back the waiver claim. If he clears waivers, a deal could be made with any club.Daniels said he would keep an open communication with Beltre like he has throughout the process.Beltre has indicated that if he plays another season, he'd like to finish his career with the Rangers. When Daniels was asked if he expected Beltre to play again next year, he said he didn't know."I don't know that he knows," the GM said. "What he's told us is very similar to what he said publicly, which is he's going to digest everything, go home and be with his family, see how his body feels in the winter."I don't know if that's November, December, January," Daniels said. "I don't know what exactly the timeline is, and I don't think it's really fair of us to ask him right now."-- PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have been baseball's best first-inning team and they added to those numbers with Paul Goldschmidt's two-run homer Wednesday night.The way Clay Buchholz has been pitching, it was more than enough.Goldschmidt homered to set the all-time mark at Chase Field, Buchholz pitched seven scoreless innings and the Diamondbacks earned a 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels."It seems like every day. This team is pretty amazing when you look at the runs scored in the first inning," Buchholz said.The Diamondbacks have a knack for jumping on teams early Kirk Gibson Jersey , leading the majors in first-inning runs with 109.Goldschmidt increased the total with his two-run shot off Odrisamer Despaigne (2-2), passing Luis Gonzalez with his 96th homer at Chase Field. Goldschmidt had three hits to extend his hitting streak to 14 games and has reached safely in 27 straight.Buchholz (7-2) yielded four hits and struck out seven with no walks for his eighth straight game of at least five innings and three runs or fewer allowed.David Peralta also hit a two-run shot to homer for the third straight game. The Diamondbacks have won six of seven to maintain a 1 1/2-game lead in the NL West over Colorado."It all started with Clay tonight," Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. "He goes out and gives us seven scoreless and really set the tone for us for the course of this game."The injury-depleted Angels had five hits -- two by Rene Rivera -- and lost for the fifth time in six games."I thought we had some pretty good looks at him (Buchholz), hit some balls hard, but he got in his rhythm and started to change some speeds midway through," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.Buchholz has been sharp the past two months, entering Wednesday's game 5-1 with 2.00 ERA over seven starts, including his 10th career complete game against San Diego last Thursday. He kept the Angels off balance most of the night, allowing three singles and a double.Despaigne gave up five runs and seven hits in four innings against Texas on Friday in his second start since being acquired from Miami on Aug. 14 for cash. The right-hander served up Goldschmidt's first-inning homer and a run-scoring single to Nick Ahmed in the fourth.Despaigne allowed three runs and five hits in four innings."He made a couple of mistakes: One to Goldschmidt and the other one to Ahmed," Rivera said. "Besides that he was OK. His pitch count was a little high but overall he did OK."PUJOLS' PLAYAngels 1B Albert Pujols made a spectacular play in the sixth inning to take a hit away from Steven Souza Jr. Souza hit a ball off the end of the bat down the line and Pujols made a diving stop, tossing the ball to pitcher Ty Buttrey as he was rolling over to get the out.PERALTA'S RUNPeralta has been one of the best hitters in baseball in August, going 21 for 51 with eight homers and 14 RBIs in his past 12 games. He has six homers in nine games and 25 on the season after going 2 for 4 against the Angels."I keep saying it, he's on his way to having a special year," Lovullo said.TRAINER'S ROOMAngels: 2B David Fletcher was replaced by Kaleb Cowart in the fourth after fouling a pitch off his left knee in the top half. Scioscia said Fletcher is day-to-day with a bruise and hopes to have him back Friday against Houston.UP NEXTAngels: LHP Andrew Heaney is 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA in two starts against the Astros going into Friday's game.Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley is 4-0 with a 3.26 ERA over his last eight starts heading into Friday's home game against Seattle.

NEW YORK (AP) -- With shoulder-length dreadlocks and a well-crafted beard Matt Kemp Jersey , Andrew McCutchen spent his 20s forcing the baseball spotlight to shine bright on small-market Pittsburgh.Now, a clean-cut McCutchen is coming cross-country to one of the sport's grandest stages."Just gonna take me a sec to get used to my freshly shaved face," he joked on Twitter.The playoff-contending New York Yankees acquired the former NL MVP from the San Francisco Giants on Friday for two prospects. The teams announced the deal on the last day for trades to be done for players to be eligible for the postseason. McCutchen is expected to arrive in time to debut Saturday against Detroit, when he'll play right field, filling in for the injured Aaron Judge."We're getting a really good player," manager Aaron Boone said, adding that "I think his reputation precedes him. This is as high a character person as we have in our game and I know he'll fit well in our room."McCutchen already knows one of his new teammates well -- Neil Walker, who played with the then-long-haired McCutchen in the minor leagues, then joined him in helping the Pirates end a 20-year playoff drought in 2013. McCutchen won that season's NL MVP Award."I saw him for the three years that we made September, postseason pushes, elevate his game to the next level," Walker said. "Not that he needed to do that, but you saw him be the player that he's capable of being when the spotlight's on him. That's fully what I expect when he steps in here."Walker and McCutchen spoke Friday morning. McCutchen's dreadlocks have been gone for a few years, but he was concerned about the beard he's worn for nearly his entire 10-year career. The Yankees have a longstanding policy banning facial hair."I told him he needed to shave his face," Walker said. "He wasn't super happy about that."But he's really excited http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-hank-aaron-jersey , I'll tell you that. He's a guy that more than anything wants to win."The 31-year-old McCutchen is hitting .255 with 15 home runs, 55 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. His .357 on-base percentage trails only that of Judge (.398) and Aaron Hicks (.365) among qualified Yankees. He was a five-time All-Star with Pittsburgh.McCutchen has been the Giants' regular right fielder since being acquired from Pittsburgh last offseason. He will fill that spot for the Yankees, who have been without Judge since his wrist was broken by a pitch in late July. New York originally thought Judge could return within three weeks, but five weeks later, he's yet to even grip a bat in a frustratingly slow recovery."This is something that really helps us here and now," Boone said. "And even when Aaron comes back, it's another really good player to give us options to match up things how we want to. It's just another really good player in the fold, but we believe Aaron will absolutely be back."New York had the second-best record in the majors and was 8 1/2 games behind AL East-leading Boston going into a game Friday night against Detroit. The Yankees expect to activate injured catcher Gary Sanchez (groin) on Saturday and could also get shortstop Didi Gregorius (heel bruise) off the disabled list this weekend.San Francisco is getting infielder Abiatal Avelino and right-hander Juan De Paula and is also sending cash to New York. The Giants also agreed to send the Yankees $1.2 million to cover just less than half of the more than $2.45 million remaining on McCutchen's $14.75 million salary. McCutchen can file for free agency after the season.McCutchen thanked Giants fans on Twitter "for the love and support you gave not only to me, but my family as well.""Now, I'm ready to throw the pinstripes on and get to work. @Yankees let's go!" he added. Giants executive VP of baseball operations Brian Sabean was sad to deal McCutchen, but the Giants are 7 1/2 games behind Arizona for the NL West."I hope he wins a ring," Sabean said of McCutchen. "He's invested a lot in the game, he's the real deal. We need more McCutchens in the game."Sabean said San Francisco would consider signing McCutchen as a free agent this offseason.The 23-year-old Avelino was hitting a combined .287 with 15 homers, 66 RBIs and 25 steals at Triple-A and Double-A. He was ranked the Yankees' 23rd-best prospect by MLB.com.De Paula is a 20-year-old starter who has pitched well with short-season Staten Island, going 2-2 with a 1.71 ERA and nearly a strikeout per inning. He's ranked as New York's 26th-best prospect on MLB.com.Slugging prospect Chris Shaw was called up from Triple-A Sacramento to fill McCutchen's spot. ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves need to win three straight games against the Los Angeles Dodgers to avoid suffering a ninth consecutive playoff elimination dating to 2001.First Deion Sanders Jersey , though, the Braves need to worry about scoring a run as the best-of-five National League Division Series moves to SunTrust Park in Atlanta on Sunday night.The Dodgers, trying to make the NL Championship Series for the third consecutive year, won 6-0 and 3-0 in Los Angeles while holding the Braves to nine combined hits and issuing no walks.Article continues below ...The New York Giants in the 1921 World Series are the only other team to be shut out in the first two games of a postseason series."We've just gotta go back home, regroup and win a game," Braves manager Brian Snitker said.It may not get much easier for the Braves in Game 3 as the Dodgers turn to rookie right-hander Walker Buehler as they go for a sweep of the NL East champions.Buehler, who had a 2.03 ERA after the All-Star break, pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings Monday in the NL West tiebreaker against Colorado that gave the Dodgers their sixth straight division title."Obviously this will be my first playoff game, but (Game) 163 has got to be somewhere between a regular game and a playoff game," said Buehler, who finished with an 8-5 record and 2.62 ERA. "I'm just going with the same game plan, and try and stay under control."Buehler beat the Braves in his only regular-season start against them as the 24-year-old allowed a run and two hits over 5 1/3 innings at Los Angeles on June 8.Worse yet for the Braves, that was when their offense was one of the best in the NL. That began to change in the second half and took a dive in September.The Braves are batting .145 in the two playoff games and have one extra-base hit, leaving the team with few answers after being completely stymied by Hyun-Jin Ryu and Clayton Kershaw."I can probably move guys around," said Snitker http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-julio-teheran-jers ey , who will bat Ender Inciarte second. "The same guys are going to be out there. We are what we are. We've just got to hope. I'm not sure moving guys around, giving them different looks in the lineup, when you're swinging the bats like we are, is even the answer."Right-hander Kevin Gausman was slated to start Game 3, but Snitker changed his mind Saturday and will go with left-hander Sean Newcomb.Newcomb, who pitched two scoreless innings of relief in Game 1, had a no-hitter through 8 2/3 innings against the Dodgers in Atlanta on July 29, but had his ups and downs the rest of the season while finishing 12-9 with a 3.90 ERA.The Braves are 10-25 in postseason games since last winning a series in 2001, when they swept Houston in the NLDS. Atlanta hadn't made the playoffs since 2013, when it lost 3-1 to the Dodgers in the NLDS.The Braves were 1-3 against the Dodgers in Atlanta during the regular season, with Newcomb getting the only win, and 2-5 overall versus Los Angeles.

OAKLAND Scott Schebler Jersey , Calif. (AP) -- Bob Melvin might have a little better understanding of the anxiety other teams feel when his Oakland Athletics come roaring back in the late innings.Seattle nearly did it to the A's. These AL West rivals are among the best at staying in games until the very end despite a big deficit.Jed Lowrie drove in four runs to back Sean Manaea, and the A's held off a late Seattle rally to beat the Mariners 7-6 on Monday night in a matchup of playoff contenders."We've done that a few times before," Melvin said of his club's comebacks. "The other end of it doesn't feel so great. ... They have a deep lineup and obviously with their record in close games there's no quit in them as well."Manaea (11-8) pitched into the eighth and bounced back from a season-low 2 2/3 innings against the Dodgers his last time out.Second-place Oakland moved 2 1/2 games ahead of the Mariners, who had momentum coming off a four-game sweep at first-place and defending World Series champion Houston. Seattle had won six of eight. The idle Astros had their lead trimmed to two games over the A's."It's really fun right now. Coming out with a strong effort and you see the crowd getting into it, I was really taking my time and appreciating everything," Manaea said. "You can definitely feel it, feel it everywhere. Every game means something and that's how we're playing."Jean Segura and Nelson Cruz hit consecutive RBI singles with two outs in the eighth Scooter Gennett Jersey , and the Mariners -- who like the A's have a knack for late-inning rallies -- nearly pulled off a comeback. Seattle loaded the bases with none out in the ninth on three walks by Jeurys Familia before Blake Treinen relieved and allowed a run on a wild pitch and Mitch Haniger's two-run single before closing it out for his 31st save. Cruz struck out swinging to end it with runners on first and second.Matt Chapman hit a two-run double in the sixth, his third double of the game. That matched the Oakland record that he last accomplished on June 12 against Houston.Manaea gave up two runs and five hits in 7 2/3 innings as the A's won for the fourth time in five games and moved a season-high 23 games above .500 (71-48). The left-hander faced the minimum through three despite allowing a baserunner in each of the initial two innings -- getting a caught stealing in the first and double play in the second.The Mariners challenged Chapman's double in the third while Chapman was checked by athletic trainer Nick Paparesta following a headfirst slide that tore his batting glove. The call stood after review, and Lowrie doubled down the left-field line moments later.Lowrie hit RBI singles in the first and sixth innings. Only an announced crowd of 10,400 fans were on hand to see his productive night.Seattle lefty Marco Gonzales (12-8) allowed four runs and eight hits over five innings, struck out four and walked three. Gonzales lost his third straight start after winning five in a row from June 29-July 29.CANO'S RETURNSeattle's Robinson Cano is scheduled to return Tuesday from his 80-game suspension for violating baseball's drug agreement.The All-Star second baseman was suspended May 15 after he tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic that can be used to mask performance-enhancing drugs. He tuned up with Class A Everett and Triple-A Tacoma.Manager Scott Servais plans to use Cano -- who is ineligible for the postseason if Seattle makes the playoffs -- around the infield. Servais will have a sit-down with Cano once the infielder arrives in Oakland to stress not trying to do too much."We need to be smart in breaking him in," Servais said. "He wants to get going George Foster Jersey , he wants to contribute right away. He's missed playing, he's missed his teammates and being around this whole thing. I know he wants to come in and do a lot. But again small little things."TRAINER'S ROOMMariners: Already lost for the season, RHP reliever Sam Tuivailala will have surgery on his strained right Achilles tendon, and it's unclear whether he will be recovered in time for spring training. He was hurt last Wednesday during a rundown against Texas. He was acquired from St. Louis ahead of the trade deadline. ... RHP Dan Altavilla (UCL sprain in pitching elbow) will throw another live batting practice session soon then likely begin pitching in minor league games within a week. ... RHP Juan Nicasio had a second opinion on his inflamed right knee and is back playing catch.Athletics: RF Matt Joyce is hitting soft toss and off a tee in the cage and should be hitting on the field sometime this week. ... RHP Jharel Cotton (Tommy John surgery), RHP Andrew Triggs (nerve irritation in pitching arm) and RHP Paul Blackburn (elbow tendinitis) all played catch -- the first time for Cotton and Blackburn. Manager Bob Melvin is optimistic Blackburn and Triggs will pitch again this year once rosters expand Sept. 1.UP NEXTSeattle LHP James Paxton (10-5, 3.63 ERA) looks to win his second straight start when he opposes RHP Mike Fiers (7-6, 3.40) http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-tom-seaver-jersey , making his second start since the A's acquired him from the Tigers last week. Don鈥檛 expect to see Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer in pinstripes this season.According to Fancred'sJon Heyman, the New York Yankees are "not likely" to acquire the right-handed starter prior to Tuesday鈥檚 non-waiver trade deadline. Heyman explained it doesn't make "much sense" for the American League East鈥檚 second-place team to trade for him unless it moves Sonny Gray.Archer has a 4.31 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 102 strikeouts in 96 innings this season after posting an ERA over 4.00 in each of the last two years. Despite the solid but unspectacular numbers, he is still just 29 years old and finished with a sub-3.50 ERA three straight seasons from 2013 through 2015.The two-time All-Star would also bring an element of team control that many deadline acquisitions don't,seeingas how he isn鈥檛 set to be an unrestricted free agent until 2022, perSpotrac.While the Yankees are 5.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the AL East and a middling 13th in the league in starting pitcher ERA, perESPN.com http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , the rotation has stabilized of late thanks to the emergence of Gray. He has allowed just two earned runs in his last 16.1 innings, giving New York a weapon alongside the newly acquired J.A. Happ, Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia.With Happ now in the rotation and Gray bouncing back, there is less need for Archer as New York pursues a spot in the postseason.

Rob Carr/Getty ImagesMajor League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred received some criticism recently for saying that Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout could do more to market himself Albert Pujols Jersey , but the seven-time All-Star isn't here for the drama.Trout addressed the situation on Wednesday, via the Angels:Angels AngelsStatement from Mike Trout: qM7h2SXoPBThis comes hours after the team issued a statement defending the face of its franchise:Angels AngelsToday, the #Angels released the following statement on OF Mike Trout: xFLURtZ4bTManfred made headlines with his comments onThe Dan Patrick Show, noting that Trout keeps a low profile:The commissioner referenced an article byBill Shaikinof theLos Angeles Times. In it, the outfielder was asked why he isn't viewed as marketable as Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James."I have no idea," Trout told Shaikin. "I don't really think about it like that."The general consensus among baseball fans is that Trout is the best player in the game today鈥攁nd he has plenty of hardware to back up the argument. He is a former Rookie of the Year, a two-time American League MVP (to go with three second-place finishes and a fourth-place result) and a five-time Silver Slugger.Despite being the best player in the league and playing in the Los Angeles market, he is nowhere near the celebrity that James is...or even some middling NBA players. PerAdam Kilgoreof theWashington Post, the awareness category of Trout's Q Score is on the same level of Brooklyn Nets forward Kenneth Faried, who was recently traded as part of a salary dump.Baseball is coming off an era where its best players were among the biggest stars in America. The likes of Derek Jeter, Ken Griffey Jr. http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-stan-musia l-jersey , Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa were household names. Now, the best player in the world can go largely unnoticed.Trout has produced in the national spotlight鈥攚hen he's been given the opportunity. He has two All-Star Game MVP awards on his resume and also homered in the event this year. However, he struggles to gain attention because he plays on the West Coastandhasn't had many chances to shine on the postseason stage, as the Angels have made the playoffs just once in his first seven seasons.Manfred may want to see Trout step up and find ways to promote himself, but it appears as though the Angels star is focused on baseball, and only baseball. MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Justin Turner and the Los Angeles Dodgers know all about performing in the postseason.Backed into a tough spot Saturday, the red-headed slugger delivered once again.Shut down for most of the afternoon, Los Angeles staged another late rally and Turner hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning to lift the Dodgers over the Milwaukee Brewers for a 4-3 victory that evened the NL Championship Series at a game apiece.The high-powered Dodgers had two measly singles off Wade Miley before breaking through against one of baseball's best bullpens. After forcing the Brewers to use six relievers in Milwaukee's 6-5 victory Friday night, the NL West champions put that extended look to good use in Game 2 Roger Maris Jersey , especially against faltering All-Star Jeremy Jeffress."As long as we have outs left, we know we're in the game," Turner said.Milwaukee wasted a terrific performance by Miley in its first loss in three weeks, ending a 12-game winning streak that produced free burgers for its fans as part of a promotion by a local restaurant chain. Orlando Arcia and Travis Shaw homered, and Lorenzo Cain robbed David Freese of a two-run drive with a leaping grab over the wall in center .Miley pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings in his second career playoff start and had two hits in his first multihit game since 2014."We were in really good shape with the effort that Wade gave us," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. "He pitched beautifully."The best-of-seven series moves to Dodger Stadium for Game 3 on Monday night. Walker Buehler pitches for Los Angeles and Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball for Milwaukee.Miley handed a 2-0 lead over to his bullpen and Shaw tacked on a solo drive in the sixth , delighting a yellow towel-waving crowd of 43,905 at Miller Park. But that was the last run for the Brewers, and the Dodgers finished off their rally this time around after nearly taking Game 1.Cody Bellinger got Los Angeles on the board with an RBI single in the seventh, chasing Corbin Burnes and stopping an 0-for-15 slide in the playoffs that landed him on the bench at the start of the game. Austin Barnes forced in another run with a bases-loaded walk off Jeffress, but the right-hander escaped when pinch-hitter Yasmani Grandal bounced into a double play.The Dodgers went right back to work in the eighth. Chris Taylor reached on a leadoff single before Turner hit a long drive to left off Jeffress http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-matt-carpe nter-jersey , admiring the ball with his bat pointed toward the sky before rounding the bases and participating in several different celebrations with his giddy teammates on his way to the dugout.Turner bounced back after striking out a career-worst four times in Game 1."It felt good," Turner said. "I knew it was a homer, and it's cool to run around the bases and see all your teammates going crazy, jumping up and down waiting for you."Jeffress also struggled in Game 1, allowing two hits while only recording one out. He was charged with two runs and six hits in 3 1/3 innings in three appearances in the Division Series against Colorado, including a blown save in the opener."It's intense baseball games, man," Jeffress said. "They're going to be like this for the rest of the postseason. We're going to battle, they're going to battle. Just be ready."Los Angeles has scored eight runs against Milwaukee's bullpen, all in the seventh inning or later."The more you face the relievers, the easier it's going to get Tim McCarver Jersey ," Bellinger said.It was Turner's seventh career playoff homer. He was co-MVP of the NLCS last year with Taylor when Los Angeles made it to the World Series for the first time since 1988.The Dodgers are making their sixth straight appearance in the playoffs while the upstart Brewers are in the postseason for the first time since 2011. That advantage in experience seemed to pay off -- especially when Turner came up with the big blow."He personifies everything that I believe in as a baseball player, as a professional. ... He's the glue for our club," manager Dave Roberts said.Save for Yasiel Puig snapping his bat over his leg after striking out swinging with the bases loaded in the seventh, Los Angeles stayed steady as Milwaukee tried to hold on. Pedro Baez got four outs for the win, and Kenley Jansen worked the ninth for the save. Jansen broke NL MVP-favorite Christian Yelich's bat for a groundout with a runner on second for the final out.REMEMBER WHENFormer major league slugger Prince Fielder threw out a ceremonial first pitch. Fielder said Counsell helped him a lot when they played together in Milwaukee."There was one time I was thinking about bunting and he told me if I bunt, he'll punch me in the face," a chuckling Fielder said.UP NEXTChacin had his worst start of the season at Los Angeles on Aug. 2, allowing nine runs, eight earned, and five hits in 4 1/3 innings in a 21-5 loss. The veteran right-hander is 5-5 with a 4.96 ERA in 12 career starts at Dodger Stadium. Buehler is making his second career start against Milwaukee. The rookie right-hander tossed seven innings of five-hit ball in a 1-0 loss to the visiting Brewers on July 31.

CHICAGO (AP) -- Corey Kluber spread the credit for his first 20-win season Shane Greene Jersey , and admitted it's "a nice, round number."Kluber struck out 11 in seven scoreless innings and won his 20th, and Brandon Guyer hit a go-ahead solo homer in the seventh inning as the Cleveland Indians shut out the Chicago White Sox 4-0 on Monday night.Kluber (20-7) hit 20 victories for the first time after recording 18 wins in three of the four previous seasons. The reigning Cy Young award winner is the first 20-game winner for the Central Division champions since Cliff Lee went 22-3 in 2008, and the first Indians pitcher to win 20 games with 200 or more strikeouts since Gaylord Perry did it in 1974."Twenty wins is cool. It's a nice, round number, but as long as we won the game that's obviously the angle," Kluber said."It's a cool accomplishment, something to be proud of, but I think it just means I gave us a chance to win a lot of times. There's times when they probably picked me up and I got credited with a win. We're all pulling for each other to get to those numbers that mean something."Kluber may have downplayed the significance of 20 wins, but his teammates and manager didn't."We were all nervous for him. He probably wasn't, but we were because it probably meant more to us than it did to him," Indians manager Terry Francona.Cleveland is also the first team to have four pitchers with 200 strikeouts in a season. Kluber ran his total to 216 Sparky Anderson Jersey , while Carlos Carrasco has 217, Trevor Bauer 215 and Mike Clevinger 202.The Indians tied the Chicago Cubs for the major league lead with 17 shutouts.Adam Rosales gave the Indians an insurance run with a home run off reliever Nate Jones to left for his first of the season in the ninth inning. Brandon Barnes and Edwin Encarnacion then added RBI singles. It was Rosales' first home run since Sept. 4, 2017, when he was with Arizona.Indians relievers Andrew Miller and Cody Allen pitched a perfect eighth and ninth, respectively, and combined with Kluber to retire the final 17 batters.Dylan Covey didn't allow a run over six innings. He scattered six hits and struck out seven with one walk in the no-decision. He has pitched 12 consecutive innings without allowing a run against Cleveland."Kind of a different lineup today than it was last time. Some of those guys hadn't seen me. But, yeah, definitely a big confident booster for me. I've known all year that I have had this stuff, just been trying to find that consistency with it," said Covey.Covey was relieved by Ian Hamilton (0-2) after throwing 96 pitches over six innings. Guyer greeted Hamilton in the seventh by hitting his third pitch into the left-field seats for his seventh home run of the season.The White Sox threatened in the second inning. They had runners on first and third with one out, but Kluber finished the inning by getting Tim Anderson and Jose Rondon swinging."He's a Cy Young-type pitcher. With guys like that, when you have certain opportunities http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-jack-morris-jersey , and you don't get many, you got to be able to get at least one point across and hopefully your guy is able to contain them on the offensive side," said White Sox manager Rick Renteria.Kluber struck out the side in the third inning and then posted his seventh double-digit strikeout game of the season when he got Daniel Palka swinging to end the fifth."For the most part, I had pretty good command of my pitches. I don't think there was one that really stood out. It was just being able to throw all four pitches and mix them in the right spots and keep them off balance," Kluber said.Kluber has struck out 10 or more batters in three of his last four starts and retired his final 11 batters.PLAYOFF PICTUREThe Boston Red Sox clinched home-field advantage through the postseason with a 6-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night. That means Cleveland will open the Division Series at the AL West winner.IMMEDIATE IMPACT?White Sox first round pick Nick Madrigal threw out the first pitch. Madrigal, who was selected fourth overall in the 2018 draft from Oregon State, may be on the fast track to join the White Sox. "It's kind of out of my control at this point. Whatever the organization needs me to do, but I can definitely see this being a home for me hopefully sometime soon," said Madrigal. He hit .303 with seven doubles and 16 RBIs between the Arizona League, Class-A Winston Salem and Class-A Kannapolis.TRAINER'S ROOMIndians: C Roberto Perez wasn't in the lineup after leaving Sunday night's win over Boston with a bruised right shoulder. Francona said there were no lingering concerns. "He could've stayed in the game if we needed him to."White Sox: 1B Jose Abreu remains out with a right thigh injury. His status to return this season is uncertain. ... 2B Yoan Moncada had the night off.UP NEXTIndians: Francona said RHP Trevor Bauer won't throw more than 60 to 65 pitches in Tuesday's scheduled start, his second after missing 35 games with a stress fracture in his lower right leg. Bauer's performance Tuesday, Francona added Michael Fulmer Jersey , will determine whether he starts Sunday's season finale at Kansas City.White Sox: RHP James Shields (7-16) is scheduled to make his 33rd start of the season on Tuesday. He is 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA in his last five starts. Jonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesChicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon is opting to remain at a distance while MLB investigates domestic violence allegations against Cubs shortstop Addison Russell."I'm not involved in that at all," Maddon said Tuesday on 670 The Score'sBernsteinMcKnight Show. "It's a league situation. There's a process in place to deal with this between the players' union and MLB and of course Addison's involvement too. I'm totally not in that picture right now."In aposton her personal blog, Russell's ex-wifeMelisa Reidy-Russell alleged the 2016 All-Star had been emotionally and physically abusive toward her:"Emotional/verbal abuse started way before I even realized, eventually it started to be an everyday thing. Being blamed for just about anything that went wrong, name calling, intimidating me with personal force, manipulating me to think I was the problem, destroying my personal things, threatening me to 'send' meour son home to my parents as if I was privileged to be living in our home. Basically, I felt like I was nothing, a nobodyI was nothing without him,I couldn't do anything without him. After he would calm down from his angry spells Leonys Martin Jersey , I'd always get the most sincere apologies, making me believe how sorry he washe's working on bettering himself."Maddon told 670 The Score he hadn't readReidy-Russell's post and didn't plan to because "anybody can write anything they want these days with social media, blogging, etc." He's awaiting the full results of MLB's findings into the matter.In astatementthrough the MLB Players Association, Russell called the allegations "completely false."MLBplacedRussell on administrative leave in wake of the allegations. The leagueinitially launchedan investigation into similar allegations against the 24-year-old in 2017 and left the case open.Although Russell's stay on administrative leave ends seven days after it's triggered, MLB can move to extend the designation for another seven days until it's ready to make an official ruling.Houston Astros closer Roberto Osuna was on administrative leavestartingMay 8 after he was charged with assault in Toronto. He remained there until MLB officiallygave hima 75-game suspension June 22, with his time on administrative leave counting toward his suspension.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- No pitcher ever has put together a season quite like Jacob deGrom's 2018 for the New York Mets.The 23 consecutive quality starts are a record. So are the 28 starting assignments in a row allowing three runs or fewer. The 1.77 ERA isn't too shabby Brock Holt Jersey , either.And he might just wind up with the fewest wins for a starting pitcher who earns a Cy Young Award, too. Boosting his bid for the NL honor, deGrom broke a quality-starts mark first established by Bob Gibson a half-century ago, allowing one run and three singles in seven innings to help the Mets beat the Washington Nationals 4-2 Friday night."He's just getting better and better. He's a special ballplayer. He goes out there every night and it's tough that he only has nine wins or eight wins or whatever he has," said Nationals slugger Bryce Harper, who went 0 for 3 against deGrom, including a pair of strikeouts and a chopper back to the pitcher. "He's one of the best in baseball -- from both leagues. You know what you're going to get out of him every single night and tonight he was pretty tough."About an hour after their loss ended, Harper and the Nationals officially were eliminated from contention in the NL East, dropping nine games behind the Atlanta Braves with eight remaining. Atlanta beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-5. Washington won the division each of the past two seasons under then-manager Dusty Baker; the club is 77-77 under rookie skipper Dave Martinez.Throwing fastballs in the 97-99 mph range, deGrom (9-9) struck out eight and walked one. Gibson in 1968 and Chris Carpenter in 2005 each had single-season runs of 22 quality starts. No one had done better. Until now."I want us to be in every ballgame that I pitch, so I guess that kind of is an accomplishment of a goal that I have," deGrom said. "So I want to continue to do that moving forward."His next start will be Wednesday against visiting Atlanta. That's for sure. Neither deGrom nor manager Mickey Callaway would rule out the possibility of an extra outing on short rest on the regular season's final day http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-rusney-castillo-jers ey , Sept. 30, at home against Miami.The right-handed deGrom has given up as many as four earned runs in only one of his 31 starts in 2018, back on April 10 against the Marlins.So Friday's game was pretty much wrapped up by the third inning, which ended with the Mets ahead 4-1 against Joe Ross (0-1).DeGrom is locked in what's considered a tight race for Cy Young honors -- and perhaps league MVP consideration, too -- with Nationals ace Max Scherzer, who is 17-7 with a 2.57 ERA and 290 strikeouts. Scherzer has won the past two Cy Young Awards in the NL, plus one in the AL when he played for the Detroit Tigers.In the Mets' 5-4 victory in 12 innings Thursday, Scherzer gave up three runs in seven innings and struck out 13.Entering Friday, deGrom boasted a majors-leading 1.78 ERA, 251 Ks and 45 walks, and ranked No. 1 in various other categories.DeGrom looked good from the outset, striking out leadoff hitter Victor Robles with a 98 mph fastball Chris Sale Jersey , then getting Harper to swing through a 99 mph offering to end the first inning. Harper missed a 93 mph slider to strike out again in the fourth."He's just able to do things other guys aren't," Mets teammate Jay Bruce said about deGrom. "He goes out there and it's been pretty automatic. He's either going to give up zero or one, pretty much every time he goes out there."TRAINER'S ROOMMets: Mesoraco hadn't played since leaving a game Sept. 3 because of a bulging disk in his back. He was 3 for 3 with a walk.Nationals: OF Adam Eaton was out of the starting lineup for the fourth time in five games, because of a sore and stiff left knee.UP NEXTRHP Corey Oswalt (3-2, 6.31 ERA) will start for the Mets on Saturday against RHP Austin Voth (0-1, 11.81), who will take RHP Tanner Roark's spot in the rotation.

LOS ANGELES (AP) It took 56 years for Dodger Stadium to see a game like this.Cody Bellinger hit a grand slam, Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig hit two homers each, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 21-5 on Thursday night.Brian Dozier and Justin Turner also went deep as Los Angeles finished with its highest scoring total at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers hit a season high-tying seven homers, and also set season highs for runs in a game, and in an inning when they had nine in the seventh."That is more indicative of our club offensively," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "You're going to have spells where you don't have hits and there will be bad at-bats when guys pitch well Steven Wright Jersey , but the last couple of nights, with a walk-off win (Wednesday), that can give you a shot in the arm and hopefully it continues."Clayton Kershaw (5-5) gave up two runs and five hits over six innings, winning his second consecutive start. He also won for the fourth time in his last six outings, while striking out seven with two walks.Christian Yelich and Jesus Augilar each hit home runs for the Brewers, who lost for just the fifth time in 13 games. Yelich's home run off Kershaw was his 16th. Aguilar, who went deep against Dodgers reliever Erik Goeddel, hit his 26th.But this game was all about the Dodgers' offense. The starting outfield of Pederson, Bellinger and Puig each had four RBIs. Acording to STATS LLC, the only other time that happened was in 1964, when the Milwaukee Braves' trio of Hank Aaron, Rico Carty and Lee Maye did it.Bellinger snapped an 0-for-13 slide when he lifted a 0-1 pitch from Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin off the right-field foul pole for his 18th of the season. It was his second grand slam this season and third of his two-year career."It was fun http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-craig-kimbrel-jersey ," Bellinger said. "You never expect to score that many runs, but when you do, you just try to take advantage of it at the plate and I think we did a good job of that today."Chacin (10-4) gave up nine runs and five hits with four walks over 4 1/3 innings. It was the right-hander's worst outing since giving up eight runs over 4 1/3 innings June 24 at home against the St. Louis Cardinals."They have a good lineup," Chacin said. "I feel like they always have a good lineup and they have good guys like (Manny) Machado and Dozier. They're going to be the team to beat in the National League and hopefully we play against them again."Infielder Hernan Perez and catcher Erik Kratz each made his third appearance on the mound for the Brewers.Pederson started the Dodgers' home-run binge when he led off the game with a drive deep into the seats in right field. It was the seventh leadoff home run of his career, with four of those coming this year. He added a three-run shot in the seventh to give him 16 on the season.Puig had a solo shot down the left-field line in the fourth inning and a two-run shot in the seventh to give him 14 on the season. Dozier, who was acquired from Minnesota at Tuesday's trade deadline, hit a three-run shot to left field in the fifth, his 18th.

It was the 10th time this season the Dodgers have scored 10 or more runs in a game.The Dodgers won the season series against the Brewers 4-3 after splitting the four-game series at home.DODGERS NOT FOOLEDDespite crushing the Brewers on Thursday, the Dodgers continued the theme postgame that Milwaukee is a team they could see in the postseason.Kershaw admitted he wasn't at his best despite earning the victory over six innings, and said a relentless Brewers offense was part of the reason."One of these days, maybe in the payoffs Tyler Thornburg Jersey , I'll figure out how to get Yelich out," Kershaw said. "He's swinging the bat unbelievably right now and fortunately our bats were a little bit hotter tonight."Kershaw was asked about how tough the Brewers lineup would be in October."All the way up and down the (Brewers) lineup (there are) a lot of guys are swinging the bats," Kershaw said.AX MAN COMINGThe Dodgers are expected to add new reliever John Axford to the active roster Friday for the start of a three-game series against the Houston Astros.
