The Braves have dropped three straight

EntradaAutor: officialsbaseball Data: dj. nov. 08, 2018 8:01 am

PHOENIX (AP) — Evan Longoria’s last hit was the biggest one — a tiebreaking homer in the eighth.Longoria’s solo shot in the eighth led the San Francisco Giants to a 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.He drilled Diamondbacks reliever Archie Bradley’s 2-2 http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-scott-kingery-jersey , 97 mile-per-hour fastball with one out into the outcropping of seats in left-center field. It was Longoria’s 12th home run of the season.“You just try to get the barrel on the ball. I thought it might go,” Longoria said. “The wall is pretty high out there so you have to hit it pretty high. I’m glad it just scraped over.”The Diamondbacks’ loss and the Los Angeles Dodgers’ win Sunday created a tie for first place atop the NL West between the two teams.Bradley (3-3) entered the game leading the NL in holds with 30. He had not allowed a run to the Giants in 12 straight games against them.“Archie just made a mistake to a really good hitter,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. “I thought he threw the ball well outside of that.”Right-hander Ray Black (1-0) earned his first major league win with a scoreless seventh inning. The Diamondbacks loaded the bases in the bottom of the eighth with two outs against Giants relievers Tony Watson and Sam Dyson, but Dyson got Ketel Marte to fly out to end the inning.Will Smith retired the Diamondbacks in order with two strikeouts in the ninth for his seventh save.“The pitching was there and we needed it,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.Giants All-Star catcher Buster Posey returned to the lineup after missing Saturday’s game for concussion testing. Posey played first base and reached base twice.Both starters lasted 5 1/3 innings in no-decision efforts. The Giants’ Derek Holland allowed two runs on three hits and struck out six with two walks. The Diamondbacks’ Robbie Ray walked four and struck out eight, giving up two runs on seven hits.Steven Souza Jr.’s third home run of the season sailed into the left field seats and gave Arizona a 1-0 lead in the second inning. But the Giants tied the game in the third.Longoria, who had three hits on the day, beat the defensive shift with a two-out single to drive in Andrew McCutchen. He has reached base in eight of his last nine plate appearances.Marte bounced a single to right field to drive in Eduardo Escobar from second base for a 2-1 Diamondbacks lead in the fourth.The Giants had a chance for a big inning in the sixth. Longoria led off with a double and scored on Nick Hundley’s single, but Hundley was thrown out by left fielder David Peralta trying to reach second base on the hit. Austin Slater followed with a single and reached third base before the inning ended with Yoshihisa Hirano striking out Gorkys Hernandez.PREGAME ACCIDENTRay said he was thinking about a little boy he accidentally hit with an errant throw during pregame long toss. The boy Odubel Herrera Jersey , whom Ray believed to be 4 or 5 years old, was fine and did not have to leave the stadium.“If he wouldn’t have been all right, I don’t know how I would have went out there and pitched today,” Ray said.Ray and catcher John Ryan Murphy spoke to the boy and the two players signed autographs for him. “Him staying there and watching the game, that was big for me from a mental standpoint,” Ray said.WINNING AWAYThe Giants finished a six-game road trip to San Diego and Arizona with a 4-2 record after earning a series split against the Diamondbacks. It’s their first winning road trip this season and the first since going 4-2 at Pittsburgh and Detroit last year from June 30 to July 6.“It has been a while for us,” Bochy said. “It’s good to have a little success on the road.”TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: Posey, who left Friday’s game in the third inning after he took a foul ball to his mask, could catch in Monday’s game if he continues to feel OK http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-jorge-alfaro-jersey , Bochy said.Diamondbacks: IF Deven Marrero (strained oblique) played nine innings of a rehab assignment game with Triple-A Reno Saturday and was scheduled to play again Sunday. … OF Jarrod Dyson (groin strain) is hitting and throwing, but not doing serious running yet.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Dereck Rodriguez (5-1) is scheduled to pitch the opener of a two-game series against the Houston Astros Monday in San Francisco.Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley (12-6) pitches the series opener against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday at Chase Field. NEW YORK — The third time was the charm Tuesday night for the Philadelphia Phillies, who finally earned a win on a night in which the Atlanta Braves lost. The Phillies will look to continue a last-ditch attempt to get back into the National League East race Wednesday night when they host the New York Mets in the finale of a three-game series at Citizens Bank Park.The Phillies evened the series Tuesday night when Jorge Alfaro’s three-run homer capped a five-run sixth inning in a 5-2 victory. The win, coupled with the Braves’ 8-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, pulled Philadelphia within 5 1/2 games of first-place Atlanta, which has a magic number of seven for winning the division.Article continues below ...The Braves have dropped three straight, but the Phillies failed to make up ground when they lost to the Miami Marlins on Sunday and the Mets on Monday.Another win on Wednesday — when the Phillies’ Zach Eflin (10-7, 4.26 ERA) is scheduled to oppose the Mets’ Noah Syndergaard (12-3, 3.26) in a battle of right-handers — will provide Philadelphia some valuable momentum heading Thursday Josh Bell Jersey , when it begins a make-or-break four-game series in Atlanta against the Braves. The two teams are also scheduled to finish the season with a three-game series at Citizens Bank Park.“We have a chance, for sure,” Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola told reporters after he allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings Tuesday night. “Seven games against the Braves. Have to go over there, but just worry about what we can do and not really worry about the Braves right now.”With their third loss in four games, meanwhile, the Mets (70-81) ensured themselves a second straight non-winning season. They opened the month with 10 wins in the first 13 games, but the late run wasn’t nearly enough to undo the damage New York suffered in going 5-21 in June — the third-worst month, in terms of winning percentage, in franchise history.“We have to do everything we can to make sure a June doesn’t happen again http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-sean-rodriguez-jersey ,” first-year Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters Tuesday afternoon. “Because it derails your whole season.”Eflin stopped a three-start losing streak last Friday when he allowed one run over 6 1/3 innings as the Phillies beat the Marlins 14-2. It was the first time since June 27, a span of 11 starts, in which Eflin allowed fewer than two runs.Syndergaard won his third straight start last Friday, surrendering just three hits over seven scoreless innings as the Mets beat the Boston Red Sox 8-0. He has a 1.99 ERA and has allowed 26 baserunners while striking out 21 over 22 2/3 innings this month.Eflin is 1-3 with a 6.10 ERA in six career starts against the Mets. He split two decisions against New York over the past six weeks, giving up 10 runs over 9 2/3 innings. Syndergaard is 5-2 with a 2.96 ERA in nine career starts against the Phillies. He allowed four runs and 12 hits over 6 2/3 innings in beating Philadelphia on Sept. 8.
