SAN DIEGO – It is pretty clear how San Diego Padres manager Andy Green is approaching the final games of the 2018 season.The final series against the Arizona Diamondbacks is a continuing audition process for the three rookie pitchers in the Padres’ rotation.Each game features a Padres rookie going out against a Diamondback veteran.Article continues below ...On Friday night Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey , rookie left-hander Eric Lauer held his own against Arizona veteran Patrick Corbin, and the Padres won the game 3-2 in 15 innings.Saturday night will feature Padres right-hander Jacob Nix making his ninth major league start, while Arizona goes with Zack Godley. And in Sunday’s season finale, the most seasoned of the Padres’ rookie starters, left-hander Joey Lucchesi, faces another veteran left-hander in Arizona’s Robbie Ray.The fact that the three rookies have started consecutive games on the final two weekends of the season — at Dodger Stadium and the final home weekend at Petco Park — is no coincidence.“I wanted to see them in the pressure at Dodger Stadium and again at home over the final three days of the season,” said Padres manager Andy Green. “It’s a chance to make the most of the situation.”The 22-year-old Nix, the Padres’ third-round pick in the 2015 draft, will also be seeking some redemption Saturday night.He will be facing the Diamondbacks for the second time. And the first time didn’t go very well. In fact, it was the worst outing of his eight major-league starts. On Aug. 16 at Petco Park, in his second major league start, Nix gave up five runs on five hits and two walks with a strikeout in just two-thirds of an inning against Arizona. One of the hits was a three-run homer by David Peralta.His most recent start didn’t go particularly well, either. Last Saturday night at Dodger Stadium Baker Mayfield Jersey Elite , Nix gave up six runs on six hits in just 2 1/3 innings.Overall, Nix is 2-4 on the season with a 6.81 earned run average, a .303 opponents’ batting average and a 1.88 WHIP. Nix is 2-2 in five starts at Petco Park with a 4.67 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP and a .279 opponents’ batting average. Left-handed hitters are batting .314 against Nix while right-handers are hitting .290.Godley will be making his 33rd appearance of the season for the Diamondbacks and his 32nd start. He is 14-11 with a 4.75 ERA, a .261 opponents’ batting average and a 1.46 WHIP.Godley has not won a decision in September and has lost four straight starts since Aug. 29 – the most recent defeat coming on Sunday against the Rockies although he allowed only two runs on six hits over five innings.Godley is 2-1 this season against the Padres despite a 5.24 ERA in five games (four starts). He has given up 13 earned runs in 22 1/3 innings.He is 3-4 lifetime against the Padres with a 5.40 ERA, allowing 35 runs in 58 1/3 innings over 14 games (10 starts). He is 0-3 with a 6.55 ERA during his career at Petco Park, where he has given up 16 runs in just 22 innings.Godley is 8-6 on the road this season with a 5.52 ERA in 17 starts. ATLANTA (AP) — Brian Snitker has a two-year contract for only the second time in his 43 years with the Braves.It’s little wonder that Snitker, who turns 63 on Wednesday, said Monday he never assumed he’d be asked to return as manager even after leading Atlanta to a surprise NL East division title and its first playoff berth since 2013.“I’ve been around long enough to know you’re never guaranteed tomorrow in this business,” Snitker said after his two-year deal was announced by general manager Alex Anthopoulos. The deal includes a club option for 2021.Snitker began his long run with the Braves as a minor league player in 1977 and spent 20 years as a minor league manager in addition to stints as Atlanta’s bullpen coach and third base coach. He said his only previous two-year contract came when Bobby Cox became general manager in 1985.Now, as a leading candidate to be NL manager of the year, he again has more than a one-year contract.“It does give you a sense of accomplishment, I guess http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-tre_davious-white-jersey ,” Snitker said. “I feel really good about it. I feel good I have the opportunity to stay around longer and be a part of this.”Pitching coach Chuck Hernandez will not return. All other members of Snitker’s coaching staff also received two-year deals.Anthopoulos said it was his suggestion to replace Hernandez, who he said is “open-minded” about possibly returning in another capacity. Anthopoulos said Snitker had to be talked into replacing Hernandez.“The human being he is, I think he would have had continuity there. … I had some concerns. The more we talked about it, he understood,” Anthopoulos said.Snitker said “I was that guy” who was reassigned in 2013, moving from Atlanta’s third base coach to Triple-A Gwinnett’s manager.Snitker said Hernandez is a “wonderful, really good pitching coach,”“I get that in the process sometimes you want to go in a different direction,” he said.Anthopoulos wouldn’t elaborate on his concerns with Hernandez. He said there is no timeframe on hiring a new pitching coach and said the search could include internal candidates.Snitker was named interim manager in May 2016 after Fredi Gonzalez was fired. Snitker will be heading into his third full season as the club’s manager in 2019.Anthopoulos said he was impressed with Snitker’s leadership from the dugout.“When we did hit a bump in the road, lost four games in a row, he was steady,” Anthopoulos said. “Some guys panic.”After a third straight 90-loss season in 2017, the Braves improved to 90-72 with some of baseball’s best young talent http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-christian-mccaffrey-jersey , including Ronald Acuna Jr., Ozzie Albies and Mike Foltynewicz. They lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in four games in the NL Division Series.“I love everything about what’s going on here from the front office to the organization,” Snitker said. “The whole thing is really solid. It’s got that vibe of what I remember from years ago.”The extension is sure to be met with approval in a young clubhouse. The players constantly praised Snitker and how he always had their back.“He did a remarkable job,” star first baseman Freddie Freeman said. “It’s really hard to handle 25 to 35 personalities, and he’s one of the best at it.”Anthopoulos said the team’s payroll will rise in 2019. Right fielder Nick Markakis is a free agent and adding bullpen help and a catcher to share time with Tyler Flowers could other priorities.The team boasts a deep supply of respected pitching prospects, creating the possibility Anthopoulos could look for an offseason trade instead of free agency to boost the lineup.Snitker became a manager for the first time in the Class A South Atlantic League at 26, and his star seemed on the rise when he joined the big league club as a bullpen coach in 1985.It didn’t last. He returned to the minors the following season, settling into a largely overlooked career as an organizational jack-of-all-trades. He managed at every level of the minors, from the rookie leagues to Triple-A, and got two more stints as a coach for the big league team.
