Moncada scoring Jose Rondon on a bases-loaded walk (8th Nov 18 at 8:22am UTC)
The San Diego Padres have played the spoiler role to acclaim against the Seattle Mariners.With Tuesday night’s 2-1 victory on Wil Myers’ tiebreaking double off Mariners closer Edwin Diaz in the ninth inning Kevin Kiermaier Jersey , the Padres have won all three games between the teams this season.“For us, it was a good team win. A lot of good guys did a lot of good things,” Padres manager Andy Green said. “Edwin Díaz, probably the best reliever in baseball, to step up and score off of him in the ninth inning was great.”Article continues below ...The Padres, who are in last place in the National League West, will go for a sweep of the two-game series and a sweep of the season series Wednesday afternoon at Safeco Field.Myers has been a Mariners killer in his career, hitting .377 in 61 at-bats against them with seven doubles and two home runs.Green also praised Myers for his defense at third base. He made a strong play and even stronger throw to end the seventh inning after the Mariners had runners at second and third with no outs and couldn’t score.“For me, it was the best day I’ve seen from Wil in a while. The best hit probably all day was the line out to left field; that ball was crushed. Then the big hit of Díaz to win the game, of course. I was really pleased with what I saw. And at third base, he put in a lot of work, getting in early before anyone else was around. He did a lot of really nice things (Tuesday).”The Mariners are still clinging to hope in the American League’s wild-card chase, but their chances are dimming by the day. Seattle is 8 1/2 games behind Oakland for the final playoff berth with 18 games remaining in the regular season.The Mariners have scored just five runs in three games against the Padres this season. They were 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position Tuesday and stranded nine on base — including three in the eighth inning. They also loaded the bases in the second before Dee Gordon grounded into an inning-ending double play.“Situational hitting, we didn’t execute, and we didn’t get any big hits,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said.The Padres might have lost Luis Urias, considered one of the second base prospects in baseball http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-alex-cobb-jersey , for the rest of the season.Urias pulled his left hamstring trying to beat out an infield grounder in the eighth inning and had to be helped off the field by Green and trainer Mark Rogow.“I don’t think it looks particularly good, given the amount of time we have left in the season,” Green said. “We’ll see how he responds to treatment. Hopefully it’s nothing big, but he’s doubtful at this point in time.”Padres rookie left-hander Joey Lucchesi (7-8, 3.59 ERA) is scheduled to start Wednesday against Mariners lefty Wade LeBlanc (8-3, 3.56).Lucchesi beat the Mariners 8-3 on Aug. 29 in San Diego, allowing one run on six hits in 6 2/3 innings while tying his career-high with nine strikeouts. LeBlanc is 0-1 with a 2.61 ERA in six career appearances against his former team, including one start. LeBlanc was a second-round pick of the Padres in 2006 and made his major league debut with them in 2008, staying in San Diego through 2011. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Brad Keller had another effective outing to keep up his impressive rookie season.Keller pitched seven strong innings to win for the fourth time in six starts, leading the Kansas City Royals to a 6-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.“He kind of struggled with his mechanics a little bit early, but he’s a kid who doesn’t give in,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He comes right at you with good stuff. … He got pitches to get outs when he needed to.”Keller (8-6) gave up one run and four hits and two walks while striking out six. He is 4-1 with a 1.62 ERA in his last six starts, lowering his ERA to 3.04 — leading all AL rookies.Yost isn’t quite ready to talk about Keller in the Rookie Of The Year discussion, but it’s not too far from his mind.“I haven’t paid attention to who his competition will be,” he said. “I’m very proud and pleased with the year that he’s put together. … He’s only going to get better.”Keller says it’s an honor to be in the discussion of top rookies, but it’s not his focus.“I don’t really look at that Wade Boggs Jersey ,” Keller said. “I just try to go out and help the team win. It’s just cool to be in the talks, but that doesn’t matter.”Whit Merrifield had two hits, two RBIs, and scored two runs for the Royals. He also stole two bases to increase his American League lead to 33 steals, including a league-best 12 of third base.The aggressiveness on the basepaths, especially since the All-Star break, has been key in the Royals starting to play better at home. They have 47 steals in 48 games since the break.“We have to force the issue at times,” Merrifield said, “be aggressive and good things happen.”Wily Peralta picked up his 10th save in 10 chances, despite walking two in 1/3 of an inning.The Royals have won a season-high seven straight at home — and 10 of 11. After starting 11-35 at home before the All-Star break, the Royals are 16-10 since the break. They need to win three of their final nine games to avoid tying the franchise’s worst home record (1998).Dylan Covey (5-13) allowed six runs — five earned — and six hits in 4 1/3 innings for the White Sox. He walked three and struck out four. He is now 0-6 with a 9.00 ERA in his last six starts. Over his last 11 outings, he’s 1-9 with an 8.59 ERA.Covey has struggled against the Royals, falling to 0-7 with a 6.37 ERA in nine career starts.The White Sox scored a run in the third when Avasail Garcia beat out an infield single, scoring Yolmer Sanchez from third. Garcia rolled it sharply to short, but Adalberto Mondesi appeared to take too long to release the throw to first.Mondesi made up for his gaffe with an RBI single as part of a three-run third for Kansas City. Merrifield blooped a single to short right field, scoring Brian Goodwin. Mondesi followed with a bunt single that scored Rosell Herrera. A bad throw by catcher Welington Castillo sent Merrifield to third. He scored on Alex Gordon’s sacrifice fly to the wall in right.The Royals added another run in the fourth. Ryan O’Hearn led off with a triple down the right-field line and scored on Jorge Bonifacio’s ground-rule double to make it 4-1.Hunter Dozier had a two-run single in the sixth to give the Royals a five-run lead.The White Sox pulled within three in the ninth against Royals relievers, with Tim Anderson driving in Ryan LaMarre with a single and Yoan Moncada scoring Jose Rondon on a bases-loaded walk.“We had some opportunities early http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-wilson-ramos-jersey , didn’t cash them in,” Chicago manager Rick Renteria said. “And then, we gave them a little scare here in the ninth.”JONES RETURNSPrior to Tuesday’s game, the White Sox returned RHP Nate Jones from his rehab assignment with Class A Winston-Salem, and reinstated him from the 60-day disabled list. He was placed on the disabled list June 13 with a pronator muscle strain in his right arm. He’s 2-2 and a 2.55 ERA in 27 relief appearances. Jones pitched a scoreless seventh inning against the Royals.TRAINER’S ROOMWhite Sox: OF Leury Garcia remains on the disabled list with a grade-2 left hamstring. “Doing better,” Renteria said. “(He’s getting) a little more activity. He’s still feeling some soreness, some tightness when he’s doing certain things.”Royals: OF Brett Phillips, who has been out since suffering a right shoulder contusion last Wednesday in Cleveland, continues to improve, according to Yost. Phillips took 30 more swings off the tee Tuesday. “I still don’t have a definite date (for his return),” Yost said before the game. “But he’s getting closer.”UP NEXTWhite Sox LHP Carlos Rodon (6-5, 3.11 ERA) will face Royals LHP Eric Skoglund (1-5, 6.45). Rodon has lost his two starts in September after the Sox won all five of his August starts (he was 3-0 in those starts). Skoglund missed more than three months of the season (86 games) with a strained left UCL. He has pitched two scoreless innings out of the bullpen since his return. He made five rehab starts, going 0-1 with a 3.54 ERA with three different minor league affiliates.
