2.93 ERA in 28 career antworten

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers are heading home with a pair of series victory and Christian Yelich swinging one of the hottest bats in the majors.Yelich hit his first career grand slam Nolan Ryan Jersey , Keon Broxton added a three-run homer, and Milwaukee earned a 9-4 victory over the Washington Nationals on Sunday.He hit .444 (12 for 27) with four homers and 14 RBIs during the Brewers’ 4-2 road trip to Cincinnati and Washington. Milwaukee is in second place in the NL Central, five games behind Chicago, but it moved a half-game ahead of St. Louis for the first wild card spot.“We had every kind of game you can have here,” Yelich said. “Some rain, we had some extra-inning ones with Cincinnati. Overall, it was a good trip.”Things haven’t gone so well for Washington, which dipped back below .500 and has dropped three of its last four. The Nationals walked 11 batters Sunday, matching the team record since the club moved to Washington in 2005.Starter Jefry Rodriguez (2-2) issued seven walks while allowing seven runs in 4 2/3 innings.“All I was really trying to do was get ahead on the hitters and throw the ball pretty much own the middle,” he said.It didn’t work out that way , but he wasn’t hit hard until the fifth. Working with a 4-2 lead, Rodriguez retired two of the first three batters that inning, but yielded a Manny Pina single and then Broxton’s blast to center.Manager Dave Martinez pulled Rodriguez after another single and a walk, but reliever Tim Collins fared no better. His first six pitches were balls. Yelich hammered the seventh to left center for his 27th homer. The seven-run outburst matched Milwaukee’s highest-scoring inning of the season.Yelich has reached base safely in 19 consecutive games and has homered nine times in that span.“He’s clearly taken a jump in his offensive play,” Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. “The second half has been something to behold. The home runs are coming at a pretty good pace and he’s having moments, especially on this road trip, where he’s doing kind of superhuman things, really cool things, ‘He didn’t just do that’ kind of things.”Reliever Brandon Woodruff (3-0) pitched four scoreless innings to earn the victory.“This is Brandon Woodruff’s game,” Counsell said. “I know Yeli hits a home run and Brox hits a three-run homer Cole Hamels Jersey , but to deliver four innings of scoreless relief in that situation is absolutely huge.”Milwaukee starter Junior Guerra allowed four runs in three innings.TRAINER’S ROOMBrewers: Milwaukee’s active roster is at 34 after recalling RHP Corey Knebel from Triple-A Colorado Springs and RHP Zach Davies from Class A Wisconsin. INF/OF Nick Franklin was activated from the 60-day disabled list and outrighted to Colorado Springs.Nationals: LHP Sean Doolittle (left toe inflammation) threw a simulated game Sunday. Martinez said he hopes Doolittle will be activated later this week. . RHP Erick Fedde (shoulder), on the disabled list since July 5, will be activated and start Tuesday against St. Louis.BROXTON’S BOMBBroxton was 1 for 11 this season with runners in scoring position, including grounders to end the first and third innings, before his homer in the fifth.“I had men on base all day today,” Broxton said. “Those are the times I’m talking about, when we need those runs. I’m glad I was able to come up the third time around and get those guys in.”WILLIAMS DEBUTSRHP Austen Williams pitched two innings in his major league debut, the beginning of what figures to be a month-long audition for a spot in the Nationals’ bullpen next season. He struck out Mike Moustakas to open his appearance and finished with two strikeouts and two walks.“It’s awesome,” Williams said. “It’s hard to describe it other than that. It’s a special moment in my life and something I’ve worked really hard to achieve.”UP NEXTBrewers: Davies (2-5, 5.23 ERA) hasn’t started a major league game since May 29 because of a shoulder injury and will get the ball Monday as Milwaukee begins a three-game series at home against the Chicago Cubs.Nationals: RHP Max Scherzer (16-6 , 2.22), who is one strikeout away from his fifth 250-strikeout season in a row, starts Monday against St. Louis as Washington’s 10-game homestand continues. DENVER — The Colorado Rockies will begin a crucial 10-game homestand Monday against the San Francisco Giants followed by three games against the Los Angeles Dodgers and four against the Arizona Diamondbacks.The Rockies, Dodgers and Diamondbacks are locked in a tight National League West race. Colorado is in second place, a half-game behind the Dodgers and a half-game ahead of the Diamondbacks.Winning a second straight game Sunday in San Diego enabled Colorado to salvage a split of a four-game series with the Padres and conclude a 3-3 road trip. The victory also left the Rockies 1 1/2 games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second NL wild-card spot.Article continues below ...The Rockies are 8-5 against the Giants this season and 5-1 at Coors Field. Left-hander Tyler Anderson (6-7, 4.79 ERA) will start for the Rockies and try to rebound after struggling in August. Left-handed ace Madiso Bumgarner (5-5, 2.68) will start for the Giants.Despite losing five of the past eight games, the Rockies have gained a half-game in the standings during that stretch. They are 34-30 at home, including 11-7 since the All-Star break.In the Rockies’ 7-3 win over the Padres on Sunday, key late-game relievers Scott Oberg (2.64 ERA) and Adam Ottavino (2.01) each pitched a scoreless inning. Both have worked in two straight games and three of the past four.After the victory Martin Perez Jersey , Rockies manager Bud Black said, ” ‘Otto’ will be down (Monday). Oberg will be down. And the other guys who pitch in relief, if it’s a tight game with the Giants, have to come through for us. That’s what it’s going to take.”Improvement from Anderson could determine whether it’s a tight game. He gave up seven hits and six runs on Aug. 26 against St. Louis and lasted a career-low two-thirds of an inning as the Cardinals romped 12-3.The Rockies pushed back Anderson’s next start, and he will take the mound with seven days’ rest and hoping to improve his wayward command.Anderson went 0-4 with an 11.39 ERA in five August starts and allowed nine homers in 21 1/3 innings along with a .368 batting average and 1.174 OPS by opponents. He has gone nine starts since he last won July 4 when he blanked the Giants on two hits for eight innings at Coors Field.Anderson is 1-2 with a 4.11 ERA in five starts against the Giants, including two this season in which he’s 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA.Bumgarner threw seven shutout innings Tuesday against Atlanta but ended up with a no-decision in the Giants’ 1-0 win. He has allowed two or fewer earned runs in six of his past seven starts — the exception when he gave up a season-high five earned runs on Aug. 18 at Cincinnati — going 2-2 with a 2.11 ERA during that stretch while holding opponents to a .199 average and .676 OPS.Bumgarner is 12-8 with a 2.93 ERA in 28 career starts against the Rockies, including 0-1 with a 1.38 ERA in two starts this year. He’s 5-6 with a 3.93 ERA in 14 starts at Coors Field.In the past eight games, the Giants’ starters have a 1.20 ERA (seven earned runs, 52 1/3 innings). But San Francisco has scored three or fewer runs in six of its past nine games.The Giants (68-70) have dropped three of their past four games, including the final two of three to the New York Mets after trading right fielder Andrew McCutchen to the New York Yankees for two prospects just before the Aug. 31 trade deadline.The Giants acquired McCutchen last winter. No longer the middle-of-the lineup force he was in Pittsburgh Jurickson Profar Jersey , McCutchen noneheless played regularly for the Giants. But they are mired in fourth place, and with McCutchen eligible for free agency after the season, a trade, while not welcome, made sense.“Contrary to some other general managers, our front office, we don’t necessarily relish the trade deadline and being involved in this,” Giants executive vice president for baseball operations Brian Sabean told the San Jose Mercury News. “You’ve got people going out the door that you’re invested in and you’re never really sure of the return, etc. We all know the drill.”
