PORT ST. LUCIE Randy Johnson Jersey , Fla. (AP) After spending his entire career with the Cleveland Indians, Michael Brantley likened joining the Houston Astros to going to a new high school.Those first day butterflies quickly dissipated, and the outfielder is fitting in famously with his new teammates. He has already moved into a leadership role on this veteran team.One of the best things about this locker room is when I came in, everybody was willing to help and make me feel comfortable and talk, he said. You come in every morning, you look around and everybodys smiling and playing cards, and its just a great atmosphere all-around that they created.The free agent outfielder signed a $32 million, two-year contract with Houston in December after spending his first 10 seasons with the Indians.Manager AJ Hinch has admired Brantley and is just as impressed after seeing him up close for the past couple of weeks.He fits in perfectly, Hinch said. He could walk in all 30 clubhouses and immediately garner the respect that he deserves. Hes very professional. Hes very consistent.Houston wasnt lacking in veteran leadership with a team which includes Jose Altuve, George Springer, Josh Reddick and Yuli Gurriel. Brantley has still managed to make a mark.Hes quickly become a very important person in our clubhouse A. J. Pollock Jersey , Hinch said. Hes someone I know our position players will look up to or will look to when it comes to maintaining the balance that it takes to be a position player for us.The career .295 hitter gives the Astros an upgrade to an outfield anchored by Springer and adds a left-handed bat to a predominantly right-handed lineup. Hes enjoyed camp so far and used it as a chance to bond with his new teammates on and off the field.The whole goal of spring training is developing a relationship with your teammates and getting comfortable with reads and breaks and just getting back into baseball shape, he said. But also learning what the guy wants next to you and learning how you can help and what you can do to make your teammates better.The three-time All-Star hit .309 with 17 homers, 36 doubles and 76 RBIs in 143 games last season, making 134 starts in left field. His best season came in 2014, when he finished third in AL MVP voting after hitting 20 homers with 97 RBIs both career highs.Hes excited about the possibility of helping the Astros win another World Series after they took their first title in 2017. And with the group of guys hes joining, he will be careful to simply be himself instead of trying to do too much to wow his new teammates.You know how good everybody is in this locker room so Im just going to come in and try to do exactly what Im doing, and if that helps the team win games thats all I care about, he said. SAN DIEGO (AP) Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. have given the San Diego Padres a whole new dynamic.Machado got his first two hits with San Diego and Tatis almost got his first big league home run, settling for his first double and first run as the Padres beat the San Francisco Giants 4-1 on Friday night.Ian Kinsler homered for San Diego, which is 2-0 for the first time since 2011.The Padres came within three outs of their second straight shutout before Evan Longoria homered leading off the ninth against Phil Maton. Kirby Yates came on and earned his second straight save the hard way, loading the bases with one out before striking out Gerardo Parra and Brandon Belt.The 17 scoreless innings to start the season by San Diego are the most in team history http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/auth...-greinke-jersey , topping the 14 to open the 2008 season. Left-hander Joey Lucchesi (1-0) allowed three hits in 5 1/3 innings, struck out seven and walked one.Machado went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts in his Padres debut on Thursday. He struck out in his first two at-bats Friday night before lining a single to left off Derek Holland in the fifth. That advanced Wil Myers, who scored on Franmil Reyes sacrifice fly to make it 4-0. Machado singled again in the seventh off Mark Melancon.Feels great, get it over with, Machado said. Even better with that W. It was a good day all around.Manager Andy Green said Machado might have been over-aggressive on opening day.I saw more enthusiasm out of Manny when Fernando gets hits than when he gets hits, Green said. He probably didnt have the five at-bats he envisioned to start his Padres career, but after he struck out before the two hits he got, he was dancing in the dugout with Franmil between innings. He knows hes good. He knows hes fine. Good to get a couple of hits Im sure but there was no panic there, no concern by anybody.The signing of Machado to a $300 million, 10-year contract early in spring training has energized a fan base desperate for a winning team. The Padres also promoted top prospect Tatis, who had two hits on opening day and just missed hitting his first home run when he doubled off the wall in center in the second Friday night to move Eric Hosmer to third. They both scored on Manuel Margots single. Tatis slid home and celebrated with Hosmer.I show my emotions and thats how I feel Shelby Miller Jersey , said Tatis, whose father played in the big leagues.Did he think his fly ball was gone? No, Tatis said. I was just glad I was on base.Machado has been impressed with Tatis.Hes an athlete, plays the game the right way as well, he said. He brings a lot to this ballclub. We just need him to keep doing what hes doing, and if he can do that were going to be a very good ballclub. He brings it every day. Thats what you need on your ballclub. Everybody else in here is feeding off of that energy and as a ballclub thats what we need.Kinsler homered leading off the third. He walked to begin the fourth and tried to score on Myers double to right but was thrown out, a call that was upheld after review.Holland (0-1) allowed three runs and four hits in four innings, struck out five and walked two.There were just a couple pitches that got away, Holland said. Youve got to give the credit to those guys. I made some good pitches on a few guys. The one Tatis hit off the wall, youve got to give the guy credit, he went out and got it. Hes a big league hitter. Hes up here for a reason.Hes carrying himself very well Chris Owings Jersey , Holland added. Give the kid some credit. He came in opening day, did his thing. Weve just got to keep doing what we can to figure him out right now. I dont think any of us got to really see him in spring.UP NEXTGiants: Dereck Rodriguez, who was 6-4 with a 2.81 ERA as a rookie in 2018, is scheduled to start Saturday night. He had a 1.29 ERA and 13 strikeouts in two starts against San Diego.Padres: LHP Nick Margevicius is scheduled to make his big league debut. The 22-year-old was 10-8 with a 3.60 ERA in 23 appearances in 2018, including 22 starts, between Low-A Fort Wayne and Single-A Lake Elsinore.

ST. PETERSBURG http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authent...tt-adams-jersey , Fla. (AP) Trevor Bauer, Gerrit Cole and Alex Wood won their salary arbitration cases Wednesday, giving players a 6-3 advantage over teams to ensure a winning record in consecutive years for the first time since 1989-90.Bauer won his hearing for the second straight year and was awarded $13 million by James Darby, James Oldham and Sylvia Skratek instead of the Cleveland Indians $11 million offer.Cole was given a $13.5 million salary by Gil Vernon, Steven Wolf and Walt De Treux rather than the Houston Astros offer of $11,425,000.Wood will get $9.65 million instead of the Cincinnati Reds $8.7 million offer, Dan Brent, Andrew Strongin and Phillip LaPorte decided.Bauer and Cole topped the previous high for a salary awarded in an arbitration hearing, $10.5 million won last year by Boston outfielder Mookie Betts.Bauer, a 28-year-old right-hander, was a first-time All-Star last year and finished sixth in AL Cy Young Award voting after going 12-6 with a 2.21 ERA, second behind Tampa Bays Nate Snell. Bauers right leg was broken Aug. 11 when hit by a line drive, and he did not return to the mound for the Indians until Sept. 21.Bauer won a $6,525,000 salary last year in a case decided by Strongin, Wolf and Robert Herzog, who ruled against Clevelands $5.3 million offer.Minnesotas Kyle Lohse (2005, 06), Houstons Collin McHugh (2017, 18) and Tampa Bays Jake Odorizzi (2017 Wilmer Difo Jersey , 18) also won in consecutive years.Cole, also a 28-year-right-hander, received his second All-Star selection last year and went 15-5 with a 2.88 ERA. He made $6.75 million. Houston has lost five straight cases since beating catcher Jason Castro in 2016, falling to McHugh twice, reliever Ken Giles last year and shortstop Carlos Correa this year.Wood, a 28-year-old left-hander, was 9-7 with a 3.68 ERA for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 27 starts and six relief appearances last year, when he made $6 million. He was acquired by the Reds on Dec. 21 along with outfielders Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp.Cole and Wood are eligible for free agency after this season, and Bauer is eligible after the 2020 season.Players will finish with a winning record for the third time in four years but just the fifth time since 1996 and 11th time since arbitration started in 1974.Oakland closer Blake Treinen and Tampa Bay outfielder Tommy Pham also won their cases this year, while Washington outfielder Michael A. Taylor, Nationals reliever Kyle Barraclough and Toronto reliever Ryan Tepera lost.Detroit pitcher Michael Fulmer asked for a raise from $575,200 to $3.4 million on Wednesday, and the Tigers argued for $2.8 million. A decision by Matt Goldberg, Robert Herzog and Elizabeth Neumeier is expected Saturday.Fulmer was the 2016 AL Rookie of the Year and an All-Star in 2017. A right-hander who turns 26 on March 15, Fulmer was 3-12 with a 4.69 ERA in 132 1/3 innings last year. He didnt pitch for the Tigers between July 14 and Aug. 24 because of a left oblique strain, then didnt pitch after Sept. 15 because of a torn right lateral meniscus.New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino is the only player still scheduled for a hearing.Pitcher Aaron Nola avoided a hearing by agreeing to a $45 million, four-year contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.The 25-year-old right-hander set career bests last year when he was a first-time All-Star, going 17-6 with a 2.37 ERA. He would have been eligible for free agency after the 2021 season.Nola gets a $2 million signing bonus, $4 million this year, $8 million in 2020, $11.75 million in 2021 and $15 million in 2022. Philadelphia has a $16 million team option for 2023 with a $4.25 million buyout.Eligible for arbitration for the first time Brian Goodwin Jersey , he had asked for a raise from $573,000 to $6.75 million. The Phillies had offered $4.5 million.Among the more than 175 players who were eligible for arbitration this year, Nola is the first to get a deal of more than one guaranteed season. Arizona left-hander T.J. MacFarland and Milwaukee catcher Manny Pina agreed to contracts that included 2020 club options. HOUSTON (AP) This postseason may be best remembered for its bullpen openers. Just not in the AL Division Series between the Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians.Relief pitchers are covering entire games for other championship contenders this October, but the Astros and Indians are ready to roll old school, starting with Cy Young Award winners Justin Verlander and Corey Kluber facing off in Game 1 on Friday.I love starters, Astros manager AJ Hinch said Thursday. Why? Because Ive got good ones. I think thats the easiest way to fall in love with a rotation and have that mindset, do I want my starters to go deep in the game? Yeah, theyre good.Cleveland knows the feeling. This series will feature some of the best pitchers in the American League, with Clevelands Carlos Carrasco opposing two-time All-Star right-hander Gerrit Cole in the second game Saturday, and Mike Clevinger of the Indians and 2015 Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel pitching in Mondays Game 3.Verlander, a 14-year veteran, believes the AL West champion Astros and AL Central champion Indians have the top two rotations in the AL. He thinks the performance of each teams starters will be paramount to success in this series.Us and the Indians probably being 1 and 2, however you like to slice it, us and them, them and us, he said. Pick your poison. We both have very defined starters who have a great track record and have good stuff. This should be a really fun series.Kluber pitched well in the postseason in 2016 when the Indians fell to the Cubs in the World Series. But he struggled in the ALDS last year against the New York Yankees while dealing with an aching back. Hes feeling healthier this time around and expecting a stronger performance.Whether a game I pitch or a month I have or a year I have is good or bad, the way I look at it is Im looking forward to the next one not dwelling on previous outings or games, whether theyre good or bad, he said.Some things to look for as the Indians and Astros open this best-of-five series.CORREAS BACKHouston shortstop Carlos Correa hit .268 with 13 homers and 49 RBIs in the first half this season but struggled with a back injury for most of the second half. He missed about six weeks and hit just .180 with two homers and 16 RBIs in 37 games after the All-Star break.Though it wasnt bothering him Thursday, the top overall pick in the 2012 draft said he isnt sure that the problem is completely behind him.One day I wake up and Im fine and one day I wake up and my back is tight again, he said. Right now http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authent...tt-adams-jersey , I feel great. I feel ready to go and hopefully it doesnt come back.MORTON AND BAUERHoustons Charlie Morton and Clevelands Trevor Bauer could end up starting Game 4, if necessary. However, they might also come out of the bullpen before that if any of their starters struggle. Manager Terry Francona has indicated Bauer could be used to eat up multiple innings like Andrew Miller did for the Indians in the last couple of postseasons.Our job now is to take who we have now and get the best out of them. If we get where we want, my guess is that Trevors going to be used a ton, Francona said.DONALDSONS SEASONThird baseman Josh Donaldson, the 2015 AL MVP, spent most of the season on the disabled list with various injuries before being traded from Toronto to Cleveland on Aug. 31. He looked good in li ...

PHOENIX (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks had chances

:  liny195 @ 16.4.2019, 5:51
to win in the ninth inning http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-tebow-jersey , again in the 10th, and the next three innings after that.After all those chances and more than 4 1/2 hours of baseball, David Peralta finally ended it with his first walk-off home run.Peralta hit his second solo homer off the game off the top of the wall in the 14th inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied from a two-run deficit in the ninth to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 on Monday night.I always wondered what it felt like to hit a walk-off homer, Peralta said. Its something you cant even describe.Phillies starter Jake Arrieta allowed three hits in eight scoreless innings, leaving with a 2-0 lead.His chance at a fifth straight win came undone in the ninth.Peralta hit a one-out solo homer off Seranthony Dominguez, and Steven Souza Jr. followed Eduardo Escobars double with a tying single. Luis Garcia replaced Dominguez and walked two to load the bases, but got pinch hitter A.J. Pollock to ground out.Yoshihisa Hirano (3-2) didnt allow a hit the final two innings, with Jorge Alfaro just missing a homer to right for the final out of the 14th.The Diamondbacks kept putting runners in scoring position, but failed getting that crucial hit until Peralta hit the first pitch he saw from Austin Davis (1-2) off the wall and out in left-center. Peralta was mobbed at the plate after ending the Phillies five-game winning streak with one swing.This is the type of baseball we were used to playing last year http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-tebow-jersey , done it in spurts this year and couldnt have come at a better time, Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said.Arrieta underwent a massive turnaround in July, going 4-0 with a 2.80 ERA in six starts after going 0-4 with a 6.66 ERA in June.The right-hander is second in the NL at inducing groundball double plays with 19 and got another in the second inning to strand Escobar after a leadoff double.Arrieta was lifted after 110 pitches and seemingly in great position, only to watch it go up in smoke with the ninth-inning blowup.He pitched great and we definitely strive to win baseball game like that for a starting pitcher who performs like Jake did, Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said.Arizonas Zack Godley matched Arrieta nearly pitch for pitch until Odubel Herrera hit a run-scoring triple in the seventh inning and Jorge Alfaro followed with a sacrifice fly.Godley allowed two runs on five hits and struck out seven in 7 1/3 innings.DOMINGUEZS STRUGGLESAfter Dominguez gave up the two runs in the ninth, Kapler did not hesitate to bring him out. The right-hander has 12 saves this season, but has been struggling of late and Kapler didnt want to take a chance the game would end in the ninth.This is not his best. I am not blind, Kapler said. I understand the reality is he is not pitching his best right now, but we are not wavering in our confidence whatsoever. We cant wait to get him back out on the mound because we understand how good he is and the talent will prevail.YOSHIS AT-BATIn the 13th inning Jose Reyes Jersey , Lovullo faced a dilemma: Hirano was due up third, but Lovullo wanted him to come back to pitch the 14th to save his bullpen. Lovullo initially told Hirano not to swing, but then relented after the Japanese rookie pleaded.Hirano had yet to have an at-bat in the majors and was 2 for 21 during his career in Japan, but nearly won the game before grounding out, sending a flare to right that landed just foul with a runner on second base.It would have been a monumental moment in Arizona Diamondbacks baseball, Lovullo said. The fact that he made contact is a miracle, but it speaks volumes about what these guys are trying to do.TRAINERS TABLEDiamondbacks: 3B Jake Lamb is expected to have left shoulder surgery on Aug. 15 to repair a frayed rotator cuff. Pollock did not start for the second straight game to rest his fatigued legs.UP NEXTDiamondbacks RHP Zack Greinke is coming off his first loss in nine starts heading into Tuesdays game against the Phillies after giving up two runs in six innings of a loss to the San Francisco Giants. Phillies RHP Nick Pivetta allowed six runs in 2 2/3 innings in his only career start against Arizona. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Houston Astros manager AJ Hinch does not expect Lance McCullers Jr. to rejoin the starting rotation this season when he returns from a forearm injury.Hinch said Sunday it is unlikely McCullers, who is 10-6 with a 3.93 ERA Jeurys Familia Jersey , would be able to rebuild his stamina to the point where he could start.I guess never say never cause once you get on the mound and get going things can progress a different way, but I think the focus will be and probably should be shorter stints, Hinch said.McCullers has been on the disabled list since Aug. 5, one day after he left a start against the Los Angeles Dodgers early because of a muscle strain.Hinch also said McCullers rehabilitation program was being slowed down because of a continued lack of progress, but he is still targeting September for him to resume throwing off the mound.We knew it was September until we were going to consider doing anything. Then we thought we could be a little bit more aggressive with him, but were going to put that on pause and just have him do a throwing program, Hinch said.Hes feeling pretty symptom-free. I think his throwing has been fine, but kind of the re-evaluation of him, weve decided to push it back.Hinch is not sure how he will structure his rotation down the stretch without McCullers. Left-hander Framber Valdez could be an option to start after allowing one run in 4 1/3 innings to earn the win in his major league debut at Seattle on Tuesday. The Astros could also take advantage of September call-ups to address the vacancy.As the rules change where we can expand the rosters Mike Piazza Jersey , you could see a spot going to somebody that steps up and takes the ball and is very reliable for every five days. You could see that spot change. You could also see us be creative with the bullpen and have a bullpen day every now and then, Hinch said.But Hinch is wary of being too experimental given how closely contested the AL West is.Weve got to continue to put really good pitchers out there and not be too much trial and error because of the race that were in, but I could see it being used a lot of different ways. My preference would be for somebody to step up and throw the ball very well and have our normal rotation, Hinch said.

The Chicago Cubs are coming off their fourth straight

:  liny195 @ 16.4.2019, 5:37
postseason appearance Wade Davis Jersey , but that doesn't mean franchise star and 2016 National League MVP Kris Bryant is staying put in the Windy City.According to Buster Olney of ESPN.com, the Cubs let other teams know that they're "willing to discuss trade proposals for almost all of the players on their roster, including Bryant."Per Olney, the Cubs tried reaching a long-term contract extension with Bryant last year, but they were never able to hammer out a deal. Bryant can test free agency after the 2021 season.The Cubs followed up their 2016 World Series championship with a trip to the 2017 NLCS, but they were embarrassed by the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games. After winning 95 games in the regular season this year, the Cubs had to play the Milwaukee Brewers in an NL Central tiebreaker game.advertising Credit: Matt Marton-USA TODAY SportsChicago then had to play the Colorado Rockies in the NL Wild Card Game, which they lost. Olney detailed that there's "concern within the organization about the clubhouse culture," with recently fired hitting coach Chili Davis saying it wasn't easy working with the players.Injuries derailed much of Bryant's 2018 season http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic...d-bettis-jersey , as he batted a mere .272 with 13 home runs and 52 RBI, a significant regression from the 39 homers, 102 RBI and .292 BA he had in 2016.For the Cubs, ending their 108-year World Series drought was supposed to only be the beginning of something special. Loaded with so much young talent and impact veterans, some thought this group would form the next great dynasty.advertisingBut key players from that championship team have left, while Bryant has struggled to piece together that MVP form again. It's no guarantee that the Cubbies actually trade their franchises star, but it's interesting enough that they're listening to offers for him.This is a situation to monitor closely as the season progresses. ATLANTA (AP) Ronald Acuna Jr. had a case of jitters before he stepped in the batters box for the first time Tuesday night.He had homered in the leadoff spot twice in a doubleheader the day before, so even Acuna wondered if it could happen again.I wasnt sure Id be able to hit another home run like that, he said through a translator. At first I laughed a lot Adam Ottavino Jersey , but then I got nervous again.He didnt stay nervous for long.Acuna became the youngest player in major league history to homer in five straight games, hitting a leadoff shot on the first pitch and adding a three-run long ball in the seventh inning to help the surging Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 10-6.Freddie Freeman hit his 20th homer to tie it in the sixth, and Dansby Swanson had a tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh as the NL East-leading Braves won for the 13th time in 17 games to take a two-game lead over Philadelphia. Atlanta is 16 games over .500 for the first time since winning the division five years ago.The 20-year-old Acuna homered on Miamis first pitch for the second straight night and became the first player to hit a leadoff homer in three consecutive games since Baltimores Brady Anderson went deep in four straight in 1996. On Monday, he became the fourth player in major league history to hit leadoff homers in both games of a doubleheader.You see him smiling, Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte said. Its contagious what hes doing. Hes best leadoff hitter Ive ever seen. Hes the best player Ive ever seen. Hopefully hes going to continue to help us in the long run.Acuna went deep to left-center in the first off Trevor Richards and homered to right-center, his 19th of the year, off left-hander Adam Conley to give the Braves a 10-6 lead in the seventh.Freddie and I were looking at each other, manager Brian Snitker said. He was in the hole, and we were like Pat Valaika Jersey , My God, are we seeing this? And the explosions when he hit em, too. I dont know. Its pretty good.J.T. Realmuto drove in four runs for Miami, hitting his 15th homer to tie it at 2-all in the third and lining a two-run single in the fourth to give the Marlins a 5-4 lead.Acuna, who went 3 for 5 and enjoyed his first multi-homer game, has homered in seven of his last eight games and is hitting .358 with 12 homers, 25 runs and 24 RBIs since moving to the top of the batting order, a stretch of 24 games beginning after the All-Star break.We really didnt have much of a conversation about it, the rookie said. I just showed up one day and saw my name in the leadoff spot. I didnt think that much about it.After Acuna and Charlie Culberson homered on back-to-back pitches to make it 2-0 Daniel Castro Jersey , Atlanta took a 4-2 lead in the third inning on Johan Camargos RBI double and Inciartes RBI triple. Kurt Suzukis RBI single chased Richards in the fifth and made it 5-all.Braves starter Anibal Sanchez gave up seven hits, two walks and five runs four earned with six strikeouts in five innings.Jesse Biddle (4-1) earned the win despite scuffling in the sixth, giving up Christopher Bosticks pinch-hit, RBI double and hitting Realmuto with a pitch to load the bases with no outs. The left-hander escaped with a strikeout and a double play.I could feel the momentum change right there, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. They came right back and scored on us.Richards allowed 10 hits, five runs and two walks and struck out three in 4 1/3 innings. Conley (3-3) allowed five hits and five runs in two innings.Acuna has been the hottest Brave lately but he hasnt been alone. Since getting shut out by Zack Wheeler and the New York Mets on Aug. 4, Atlanta has scored 67 runs and hit 21 homers in the last 11 games.Freeman stayed hot in the season series with Miami and is hitting .439 with eight homers and 16 RBIs in 14 games this year against the Marlins.Acuna tied the Atlanta record of homering in five consecutive games, a mark Brian McCann set in 2006. The only other major leaguer younger than 21 to homer in four straight games was Miguel Cabrera for the Marlins in 2004.I think this is the first time Ive ever been hot, hot http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic...d-bettis-jersey , Acuna said. It feels good, and you definitely show up with a lot of confidence.The Marlins have lost 13 of 15 and began the game tied with San Diego for the NLs worst record.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: Mattingly said the team will wait a couple of days to see if INF Miguel Rojas goes on the disabled list with a left ankle contusion.Braves: RHP Brandon McCarthy, on the DL since June 28 with right knee tendinitis, threw off the mound with no apparent problems and will spend the next two weeks on a rehab assignment. McCarthy will work in relief if hes able to return when rosters expand next month. The 35-year-old has gone 6-3 with a 4.92 ERA in 15 starts.DESPAIGNE DEALTThe Marlins traded RHP Odrisamer Despaigne to the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for cash considerations. Miamis 40-man roster is now at 39.UP NEXTMarlins: RHP Jose Urena (3-12, 4.74 ERA) will make his team-high 24th start. In three starts this year against the Braves, Urena is 0-3 with a 6.75 ERA.Braves: RHP Kevin Gausman (6-9, 4.27) will make his second start against the Marlins since Atlanta acquired him in a trade with Baltimore. Gausman is 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA in two starts for the Braves.

New Jersey Devils fans came to the Prudential

:  laiyongcai92 @ 15.4.2019, 5:47
NEWARK Noah Hanifin Jersey Womens , N.J. (AP) Center to jeer Ilya Kovalchuk. The home team certainly didnt give them a reason to cheer.Tyler Toffoli scored twice in 35 seconds early in the third period to spark the Los Angeles Kings to a 5-1 victory over the Devils on Tuesday night.Toffoli, who had the overtime winner Monday against the New York Rangers, helped send the Kings to their third win in four games.Adrian Kempe, Dion Phaneuf and Kovalchuk also scored for Los Angeles. Jack Campbell made 29 saves and Anze Kopitar had three assists.It was the first game in New Jersey for Kovalchuk since he left the Devils in 2013 to continue his career in Russia. He signed with the Kings as a free agent last summer.Kovalchuk was booed loudly when his picture appeared on the scoreboard as one of the Los Angeles starters. The hostile reception continued throughout the game whenever he hit the ice, and especially when he handled the puck.He returned the favor, scoring with 2:24 remaining to boost the lead to 5-1.Thats not something youre expecting, but thats OK, Kovalchuk said of the game-long razzing. You know thats their emotions, and thats how they react, so thats what I think. I was happy when I scored. Thats always the best answer.Pavel Zacha scored for New Jersey, and Keith Kinkaid stopped 20 shots.The game was tied 1-all before the Kings scored three goals in the first 1:52 of the third period.Toffoli started the outburst on a power play 32 seconds in. He took a flip pass from Kopitar and rifled the puck under the crossbar before striking again just 35 seconds later.To start the third period with the power play was huge, and we went in with the plan of getting the puck to the net, Toffoli said. Kopitar found me in the slot and we put it in. It kind of kept rolling from there. We took over the game in the first two minutes, and did a good job and did the right things necessary to win.Phaneuf added his first of the season on a point shot that glanced off a New Jersey defender, and suddenly the Kings were in control.Kempe opened the scoring at 6:21 of the first period with a shot from the slot that handcuffed Kinkaid.It was the only goal of the opening period and Kempes third in the last two games.The momentum shifted New Jerseys way to start the second as the Devils fired nine of the first 10 shots of the period. The pressure paid off when Zacha evened the score at 3:31 on a sensational setup by Jesper Bratt. Skating behind the Kings net Brian Gibbons Jersey Womens , Bratt fed a no-look backhand pass to the slot where Zacha slammed it home.It was another disheartening loss for the Devils, who have been unable to generate positive momentum in a season that has slipped away from them.It seems like we put together a good game here and there, captain Andy Greene said. Its not like were not working hard. Theyre mental mistakes. It just seems when that happens, were getting busted for it. The goals are happening. Were letting them in. We compound one mistake into two or three.NOTES: Jeff Carter, who sustained a lower-body injury in the Kings victory Monday night over the Rangers, is sidelined day-to-day, according to coach Willie Desjardins. Nate Thompson returned for the Kings after missing two games with the flu. The game began a season-high four-game homestand for the Devils, who play nine games at the Prudential Center in February.UP NEXTKings: At the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday.Devils: Host the New York Islanders on Thursday. T.J. Oshie stepped to the microphone and apologized for his voice.It was hoarse from days and nights of celebrating the Washington Capitals Stanley Cup triumph and fans now had gathered on the National Mall after the championship parade. Oshie had enough left to start a chant among the tens of thousands of fans: Back-to-back! Back-to-back!With a full voice and the shortest summer of his career behind him, Oshie hasnt changed his tune that the Capitals can repeat.If we continue with our style of play and everyone chips in like we did, I think we have a really good chance, Oshie said. I know the odds are against us, we had a short summer, everyone else has a couple more months of training on them. But we still have all the pieces.Even though the Pittsburgh Penguins went back-to-back in 2016 and 2017, the odds are against Washington repeating despite bringing back an almost identical roster from last years run. What the Capitals showed teams gunning for the Cup in 2019 is how a championship window is never closed as long you make the playoffs. The Penguins , Boston and Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference Jaroslav Halak Jersey Womens , and the San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues in the West, take note: Previous postseason success and failure is little indication of whatll happen next.They dont give up after a lot of tough years, Blues winger Vladimir Tarasenko said of the Caps. They work on their game, play hard and finally reach their goal. This is really good example for us. I think thats what we need to try to do.The race to the playoffs begins with the Capitals and Vegas Golden Knights not favored to make it back to the Cup Final, Sidney Crosby ready to take back the trophy he has hoisted three times, Connor McDavid looking to lift the Oilers back into contention and an influx of talent in the West again threatening to make this spring another heavyweight rumble.San Jose added two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Erik Karlsson, St. Louis traded for center Ryan OReilly and Minnesota changed general managers to take another run at an elusive title. Tampa Bay kept its deep core together, Boston is hoping for better health and Pittsburgh is loading up for another shot with Crosby eager to one-up career rival Alex Ovechkin again.Hes very determined this year, said Colorados Nathan MacKinnon, who like Crosby is a native of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. With the Penguins, its Stanley Cup or nothing for them. They have a great team. But Sids their leader. Sids the best player in the world and hes ready, for sure.The Capitals run through the playoffs mirrored the Penguins three championships over the past decade in that they were built on stellar goaltending and center depth. Like Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and a host of third-line centers, Washingtons Evgeny Kuznetsov Steven Kampfer Jersey Womens , Nicklas Backstrom and Lars Eller showed they could match up against anyone and control games at home and on the road.They were pretty deep, obviously, in the middle or anywhere, really, Bruins center Patrice Bergeron said. Obviously the center position I think is something that has a lot of impact in different ways in the game.The Blues can now go down the middle with OReilly, Brayden Schenn and Tyler Bozak, and the Maple Leafs signing of John Tavares gives them a 1-2-3 punch of the former Islanders captain, Auston Matthews and Nazem Kadri.Matthews, Kadri and the Maple Leafs pushed Washington to six games before losing in the first round in 2017 but now have the horses to contend with anyone in the league. With Cup expectations hovering over the center of the hockey universe, the Capitals years of playoff roadblocks and eventually breaking through make for another important lesson for the Maple Leafs.Thats really how hard it is, Matthews said. Its not easy. Its not just a walk in the park. Just because we added John Tavares doesnt mean its going to be a walk in the park for the Toronto Maple Leafs in the playoffs. We still got to get there and no matter who youre playing, its going to be a battle.One battle the Capitals now face is trying to avoid an ...

Thats part of what being a teammate is.(Domi) asked me, and I said, If you want to fight, lets fight,' Foligno said. Im sure our dads would be proud.Domi put the Canadiens on the board 90 seconds in. The forward powered up the wing and tried to feed Jonathan Drouin on a 2-on-1. The puck instead went off forward Eric Robinson, and Domi batted it past Bobrovsky for his 20th of the season.Byrons goal came nearly 16 minutes later. After Jesperi Kotkaniemis shot went wide of the net and off the backboard, Byron was first to the puck and buried it past Bobrovsky for his 11th of the season.The Blue Jackets drew one back in the opening moments of the second period www.officialsenators.com , when Anderson sniped one past Price.Foligno tied it in the third period when he put a rebound past Price.

Defenseman Jordie Benn hung along the boards and fed Tatar with a pass to Bobrovskys right, and he quickly tapped it past the goaltender.Tatar said he was trying to find the right position on the play, but he locked into place once his eyes met Benns.I got a little lost, Tatar said. I think Jordie looked at me and I just stopped there. He made a beautiful pass for sure.NOTES: Byron played in his 400th career NHL game. Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky suited up in his 800th career game.UP NEXTBlue Jackets: Play at Ottawa on Friday night.Canadiens: Host Philadelphia on Thursday night. UNIONDALE, N.Y.

The comeback was fueled after Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall delivered a blindside hit to New York captain Anders Lee Ottawa Senators T-Shirts Authentic , who needed eight stitches over his left eyebrow and lip to close his wounds.Normally mild-mannered Islanders center Josh Bailey responded by crashing into Kronwall and fighting with center Dylan Larkin.

Detroit has lost five of seven (2-4-1) while New York has dropped six of eight (2-4-2).Red Wings number one goalie Jimmy Howard started and took the loss Friday, when he made 28 saves, so backup Jonathan Bernier will likely be in net Saturday.

The Buffalo Sabres have one more home game before they hit the road for the first time this season.They would like nothing better than to make it three wins in a row Thursday night when they host the Colorado Avalanche at KeyBank Center.It will conclude a four-game homestand that opened the Sabres season. They will play their next five games on the road.Article continues below ...After hearing boos when they dropped their season opener 4-0 to the Boston Bruins on Oct. 4, they have defeated the New York Rangers 3-1 on Saturday and the Vegas Golden Knights 4-2 on Monday.Jack Eichel, 21, the Sabres newly appointed captain, scored twice Monday to give Buffalo (2-1-0) more wins than losses for the first time since the third game of the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. It had been 457 games, dating to Jan. 24, 2013, since Buffalo had more wins than losses.The things you can control are your compete, your attitude and your work, Eichel said. If we do that and stick together and compete for each other, I think theres a lot of good things that can happen. I like the direction in which our group is going right now.The Avalanche (2-1-0) lost 5-2 to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday in their first road game of the season. Colorado will try to come out with more jump from the start at Buffalo.I dont want to take anything away from Columbus http://www.blackhawksshoponline.com/authen...forsling-jersey , because they had a good first period, Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. But we stood around. We werent ready to start. So, when you stand around, its pretty easy to move the puck around you. Its also the reason why we had three penalties in five, six minutes of the first period. When youre not moving your legs, and not skating, teams are going to move it around and youre going to take penalties. Thats what happened.Philipp Grubauer made his first start in goal for Colorado, with Semyon Varlamov, who had started the two wins, backing up. Varlamov is likely to start Thursday.After falling behind 2-0 in the first period Tuesday, the Avalanche tied the game before the Blue Jackets regained control with three third-period goals John Hayden Jersey , including one into an empty net.Second period was great, said Grubauer, who allowed four goals on 34 shots. First one and third one, thats where we ran into some trouble. You play the right way in the second (but) you have to play the right way for 60 minutes, not one period.The Avalanche must be prepared to play a Sabres team that is willing to work with Eichel leading the way.Hes made a commitment to do it every day, not just when were under the bright lights, Sabres right winger Kyle Okposo said of Eichel. Hes done a really good job in practice of setting the tone and setting the pace. Hes the best player on our team and if hes the hardest worker every day, the team is going to follow him.Its really, really early but weve put in the work throughout the summer and in training camp, Sabres right winger Jason Pominville said. Its a different vibe, a different atmosphere. Its definitely nice to be able to get the start that we have had for sure.Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian (lower-body injury) skated with the team Wednesday for the first time since he was injured Sept. 25 and will need more practice time before he returns to the lineup.Centers Vladimir Sobotka (upper body) Authentic Jonathan Toews Jersey , who was injured in the season opener, and Johan Larsson (lower body), who has not played this season, have returned to practice but coach Phil Housley said their status has not been determined for Thursday.Avalanche defenseman Patrik Nemeth (upper body) will return to the lineup Thursday and center Vladislav Kamenev will probably make his season debut. Nemeth was injured in the season opener Oct. 4 against the Minnesota Wild.Kamenev was recalled by the Avalanche Sunday after playing two games with the Colorado Eagles of the American Hockey League.

Finishing a tiring stretch

:  laiyongcai92 @ 22.3.2019, 7:18
ST. PAUL http://www.floridapanthersteamshops.com/au...h-yandle-jersey , Minn. (AP) with four games in six nights, the Minnesota Wild twice faced a two-goal deficit in the first to the dangerous Tampa Bay Lightning.Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau has learned a very important lesson about his team in the early part of this season, though. The Wild know they can come back from slow starts.Mikael Granlund scored 3:43 into overtime and Minnesota beat Tampa Bay 5-4 on Saturday night.Charlie Coyle, Marcus Foligno, Zach Parise and Jason Zucker all scored in regulation as the Wild rallied again in the third period. Minnesota has allowed the first goal in six straight games but is 4-1-1 in those contests.Id much prefer to start out 2-0 and then increase it, but its also a really good thing when a team starts to believe it can come back, Boudreau said. Ive been fortunate enough to be with some teams that in the third period when they were down, they said, OK, we know we can score goals. And they do.Its not what you want to have to rely on all the time but its nice to know that you never give up and you never think youre out of it.Alex Stalock made 27 saves for the Wild, who outshot the Lightning 11-4 in the third period.Yanni Gourde and J.T. Miller each had a goal and assist for Tampa Bay Womens Authentic Nick Bjugstad Jersey , which lost in its first road game of the season.Ryan Callahan scored his first of the season for the Lightning and Anton Stralman pushed the game into overtime with his first goal of the season with 4:58 left in the third after Minnesota took its first lead of the game.Youre playing well, youre feeling good, we were pressing, pressing, pressing, Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. We scored and then we probably got a little bit comfortable. Its funny, when we went behind, the desperation kicked in and showed a lot about our resiliency just to get a point out of the game.Andrei Vasilekskiy made 29 saves for the Lightning, who had their three-game winning streak snapped as they played on the road after a season-opening, five-game homestand.Tampa Bay got a quick start with goals from Callahan and Gourde within the first 10:50. Callahan was playing in his just his second game after recovering from an upper-body injury.Coyles goal brought Minnesota within one, but Miller scored before the end of the first to re-establish the two-goal advantage. The Lightning outshot the Wild 16-9 in the first.This one stings Roberto Luongo Jersey , Tampa Bay defenseman Ryan McDonagh said. We had it going on all cylinders there in the first period and felt good about ourselves. We cant let our foot off the gas pedal there against any team in this league, especially on the road. So, lesson learned.Foligno scored his first of the season for the only tally of the second period and Parise tied the game 10:45 into the third.Zucker gave the Wild the lead as they pressured Vasilevskiy. But Stralman, on just the teams third shot of the period, pushed Minnesota into overtime for the third time in five home games.I think were saving it in the first, as of right now, Wild forward Jason Zucker said. We need to try and fix that. As long as were getting the wins right now, I think were going to be happy with it.NOTES: Wild C Matt Hendricks missed his second straight game with a lower-body injury. Vasilevskiy had not allowed more than two goals in a game this season. Stalock started for the second time this season in place of Devan Dubnyk, who made 33 saves in a win at Dallas the previous night. Tampa Bay hasnt won in Minnesota since April 2, 2011, losing seven games in a row. The Wild were 0 for 2 on the power play. The Lightning have started the season 25 of 25 on the penalty kill. Tampa Bay started a season-high http://www.floridapanthersteamshops.com/au...trocheck-jersey , five-game road trip.UP NEXTLightning: Finish a back-to-back set at Chicago on Sunday.Wild: Host Los Angeles on Thursday. COLUMBUS, Ohio The Toronto Maple Leafs carry a four-game winning streak into Nationwide Arena on Friday night to face a team thats even hotter.The Columbus Blue Jackets (22-12-3) returned from the Christmas break on Thursday night with their fifth consecutive victory, a 4-3 win over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Pierre-Luc Dubois goal 31 seconds into overtime.The Maple Leafs (25-10-2) will be the more rested team, playing their first game since the layoff, but coach Mike Babcock said afterpractice on Thursday in Toronto that he doesnt think thats necessarily an advantage.Article continues below ...It concerns me a little bit that Columbus is playing just from the fact that if you watched this practice you know were a little bit rusty to say the least, Babcock said. But well be better tomorrow and get ready for them.Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly liked being able to have a practice before a game.I think we should all be fresh and ready to go, he said Weve got some big games coming up here. It works to our advantage to have a practice today and play tomorrow.The Maple Leafs kept their winning streak intact on Sunday with a 5-4 overtime victory over the Detroit Red Wings. John Tavares scored the tying goal in the final seconds of the third period and Kasperi Kapanen the winner in overtime.Tavares leads the Maple Leafs with 24 goals in his first season with the club and Mitchell Marner has a team-best 38 assists and 50 points.Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews was named this week in fan voting as the captain of the Atlantic Division team for the NHL All-Star game next month.To be selected is a huge honor and to be the captain of a division is pretty special, Matthews said. The 21-year-old Matthews has accumulated 19 goals and 34 points in 23 games this season.Its exciting for our franchise, Babcock said. Obviously, hes a good player and its a real compliment for him from the fans.The Maple Leafs are running into one of the hottest goaltenders in the league. Columbus Sergei Bobrovsky was honored as the NHLs First Star of the Week. Bobrovsky was given the first night of the Blue Jackets back-to-back off on Thursday after posting a 5-0-1 record with two shutouts in six straight starts. He made 34 and 39 saves in his last two games. Hes playing at the top of his game, really Adrian Kempe Jersey , with a lot of confidence and he gives us a lot of confidence and keeps us calm on the bench, Blue Jackets winger Cam Atkinson said. We expect him to make those saves, and its amazing what he does for morale and then our team on the ice and the bench. He picks us up when we need him. Although the Blue Jackets keep winning, coach John Tortorella was not particularly impressed with the how the team played last weekend at Philadelphia and New Jersey in victories.I thought we sucked in both games, he said. Its time to get back to work. Its simple. You had your break. Christmas is over. Its a National Hockey League season. I hope we play better after the break.Besides Bobrovsky, Atkinson has provided a significantcontribution for the Blue Jackets with four goals in the last four games and 23 for the season.Hes one of the top players in this league, Tortorella said. I think we feels that.Against the Rangers, the Blue Jackets let an early lead slip away before defenseman Zach Werenski scored the tying goal with 2:20 left in the third period and then Dubois ended it. Youve got to find a way to get points and thats what weve been doing, Werenski said. Its crunch time now. These are huge points. Ever ...

Hes a good player.Rookie goaltender Thatcher Demko was injured in warmups Monday Authentic Marcus Johansson Jersey , forcing Jacob Markstrom to make back-to-back starts. Green said Demko was returning to Vancouver to have an MRI on one of his knees.The Canucks recalled defenseman Guillaume Brisebois and junior goalie Mike DiPietro before facing the Capitals. Green figures DiPietro will be with the team through its game at Chicago on Thursday. ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis coach Mike Yeo turned to desperate measures to try and snap his team out of its roughest stretch of the season.Yeo decided that the fourth line would start the game Wednesday against the Detroit Red Wings.He told the players about his unorthodox choice minutes before they took the ice.It got a chuckle out of the guys, said Scottie Upshall, a member of the trio.The bold move paid dividends as Upshall scored a second-period goal and Carter Hutton made 35 saves to help the Blues snap a seven-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory.St. Louis won for the first time since beating Winnipeg 5-2 on Feb. 9.Alex Pietrangelo also scored for the Blues, who were coming off an 8-3 loss at Minnesota on Tuesday night.This is just what we needed, Hutton said.Upshall banded with Kyle Brodziak and Chris Thorburn to add some early-game energy.Those guys are workers Michael Hutchinson Jersey Womens , Yeo said.

After last night a lot guys put a lot of effort in.Brodziak agreed, I thought last night could have been pretty deflating. But we came back. Everybody refocused. This was big.The Blues were outscored 29-10 during the seven-game skid http://www.officialdevils.com/authentic-ad...les-wood-jersey , their longest since they dropped seven in a row from Dec. 26, 2009, to Jan. 7, 2010.Detroit fired 13 shots at Hutton in the third period.I thought we matched their intensity, Red Wings center Henrik Zetterberg said. The game was a little back and forth. It would have been nice to get the first goal Nico Hischier Jersey , but they got that one. And we still hung in there.Detroit coach Jeff Blashill was pleased with the effort, but not the result.I thought our guys played hard and competed hard, Blashill said. Weve got to just keep grinding.FREE FALLINGOn Dec. 10, the Blues were 21-8-2 and tied with Tampa Bay for the most points in the NHL at 44.NOTES: Howard made 23 saves.
