  • LEADING OFF: Dbacks streaking into weekend, Scherzer returns
    September 7, 2017

    A look at what's happening all around the major Friday:


    SWEET 16?

    Mike Clevinger and the Indians try to extend their franchise-record winning streak to 16 games when they begin a series against Baltimore. Clevinger (8-5, 3.50 ERA) has delivered a pair of scoreless outings during Cleveland's streak and has perhaps found his footing after an inconsistent start to his big league career. Orioles lefty Wade Miley (8-11, 4.91) will try to slow a lineup that slugged five homers Thursday night against the White Sox.

    STREAKING SNAKES, TOO

    The Diamondbacks can stretch their club-record winning streak to 14 games in the opener of a set against the Padres. The run includes six victories over the NL West-leading Dodgers, and Arizona even led for 97 consecutive innings - the second longest span in the majors since 1900 - before the Dodgers scored first on Wednesday night. Patrick Corbin (13-11, 3.83) has a pair of victories during this streak, and he'll seek another against San Diego's Jordan Lyles (0-2, 6.71).

    TO THE MAX

    Max Scherzer hasn't lost a start since June 21, and he'll go for another victory when the Nationals host the Phillies. Scherzer (13-5, 2.19) is 5-0 with a 2.37 ERA in his past 11 starts, including five effective innings versus Milwaukee last time out before exiting with a bruised calf after being struck by a line drive.

    FEELING FINE?


    Chris Archer (9-8, 3.76) is set to return after throwing just eight pitches in his previous outing before exiting with forearm tightness. The Rays right-hander gets a tough draw in the Red Sox and left-hander Drew Pomeranz (14-5, 3.36), who lost last time out against the Yankees to end a 14-start unbeaten stretch.

    COME ON IN

    The Braves are offering free tickets to fans from Florida, Georgia and South Carolina displaced by Hurricane Irma. During a four-game series against the Marlins which began Thursday night, the Braves will give a complimentary ticket to anyone showing a valid Florida ID. The offer also is open to residents of Georgia and South Carolina counties under mandatory evacuation orders. Braves president of business Derek Schiller says he hopes the offer ''can help take their mind off the storm for a few hours.''

      • Friday’s six-pack

        — Chiefs 42, Patriots 27— Alex Smith played really well, going 28-35 for 365 yards, four TD’s.

        — Kareem Hunt is first player since Billy Sims in 1980 to gain 180+ yards from scrimmage and score 3+ TD’s in his NFL debut.

        — Chiefs had the ball up 21-17 with 7:10 to go in 3rd quarter; KC was still +$155 on the live line.

        — Indians 11, White Sox 2— Cleveland has now won 15 games in a row, outscoring opponents 109-28.

        — Rockies 9, Dodgers 1— Clayton Kershaw lasted only 3.2 innings, allowing four runs.

        — Florida, Florida State, Miami, South Florida all cancelled their football games this weekend because of Hurricane Irma.

        ***********************************

        Friday’s List of 13: NFL knowledge with the season here…….

        13) Dallas Cowboys haven’t played in a Super Bowl since the 1995 season; Russell Wilson, Ben Roethlisberger both won a Super Bowl in their second season- Dallas is hoping Dak Prescott gets a championship in his second season.

        12) Roethlisberger has played all 16 games in only three of his 13 NFL seasons; he missed one game in four other seasons.

        11) Teams who have rebuilt/are rebuilding their offensive lines:
        — Vikings have four new starters on the offensive line.
        — Broncos, Ravens, Chargers, Lions, Rams all have three new starters.

        10) Indianapolis Colts have eight new starters on defense; their QB and center are both out to start this season.

        9) Lot of people are touting the Buccaneers to be a playoff team this year; after watching Hard Knocks this summer, I wasn’t overly impressed by anything about them, other than coach Dirk Koetter is a very calm person. Even when he curses someone out, it is done quietly.

        Koetter got the head coaching job because of how he’s helped Jameis Winston develop as a QB; would’ve liked to have seen some of that behind-the-scenes teaching on Hard Knocks.

        8) Carolina Panthers lost six games by 3 or less points last year; teams like that often make a quantum leap forward if they get some breaks the next season, but Carolina was also 15-1 the year before, so maybe last year was the correction.

        In any event. Cam Newton’s shoulder is the Panthers’ most important variable.

        7) Do you think Bill Belichick will retire when Tom Brady does?

        6) Oakland Raiders have five new starters on defense; Derek Carr has been terrific at QB as a Raider, but he is 1-5 against the Chiefs.

        5) Minnesota QB Sam Bradford’s passes traveled an average of 6.24 yards in the air LY, the shortest average pass of any starting QB, which helps explain why he completed 70% of them.

        Bradford’s best WR is Michael Floyd, who is suspended for the first four games this year.

        4) Baltimore Ravens were 8-8 LY, losing three games they led with 2:30 to play; since June 1, Ravens have lost four starters for the season with injuries. Joe Flacco didn’t take a snap in the preseason games and they have three new starters on the OL. I’m a skeptic.

        3) Arizona Cardinals have only five outdoor games this season; three of their road games are in domes. Cardinals also have six new starters on defense this season.

        2) New Orleans Saints have been 7-9 the last three seasons; they’ve got six new starters on defense this year. Will they run the ball more this season to protect that defense, and aging QB Drew Brees? They’ve added Adrian Peterson, so it is a popular theory.

        1) Last two years, Chargers are 7-17 in games decided by 8 or less points; they’ve got 10 starters back on defense and a rookie coach who hired two former head coaches as coordinators, which seems like a smart move.

                    September 9, 2017


                    CLEVELAND (AP) Edwin Encarnacion and the Cleveland Indians won their 16th straight game, extending the best streak in franchise history by beating the Baltimore Orioles 5-0 Friday night.

                    Encarnacion hit a three-run homer in the first inning into some trees next to Heritage Park, the team's hallowed area where past Cleveland stars and teams are immortalized.

                    Mike Clevinger (9-5) improved his chances to pitch in the postseason with six strong innings as AL Central leaders became just the third team in the expansion era - since 1961 - to win 16 straight in a season.

                    Cleveland's string is the longest in the majors since Oakland won 20 straight in 2002. The longest winning streak in major league history is 21 by the 1935 Chicago Cubs.

                    The 1916 New York Giants had a string of 26 wins and one tie.

                    Encarnacion hit his 34th home run, connecting off Wade Miley (8-12).

                    PADRES 10, DIAMONDBACKS 6


                    PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks' team-record 13-game winning streak ended when Manuel Margot drove in four runs that led San Diego.

                    Down 8-0, the Diamondbacks scored twice in the fifth and then added four more runs in the sixth. Padres reliever Craig Stammen retired two batters with the bases loaded to preserve an 8-6 lead.

                    Jordan Lyles (1-2), in his second start for the Padres, pitched into the sixth.

                    The Padres rocked Patrick Corbin (13-12) for eight runs on 11 hits, seven for extra bases, in 4 1-3 innings.

                    ROCKIES 5, DODGERS 4

                    LOS ANGELES (AP) - DJ LeMahieu doubled home the go-ahead run and Colorado sent NL West-leading Los Angeles to its eighth straight loss.

                    The Dodgers blew a 4-1 lead in the first behind Yu Darvish (2-3), who was chased after giving up four runs in the fifth.

                    Los Angeles still owns the best record in baseball at 92-49, but has equaled its longest skid since May 2013. The majors' best team at home this season has lost seven straight at Chavez Ravine for the first time since August 1999. The Dodgers have dropped 13 of 14 overall.

                    Chris Rusin (5-0) won in relief and Greg Holland got his 38th save.

                    ATHLETICS 9, ASTROS 8

                    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jed Lowrie singled home the winning run in the ninth inning after Boog Powell's tying home run, and Oakland snapped Houston's seven-game winning streak.

                    Marcus Semien hit a grand slam for the Athletics.

                    Josh Reddick homered, doubled twice and drove in four runs for the AL West-leading Astros. Jose Altuve and Yuli Gurriel added two-run homers.

                    Blake Treinen (2-4) got the win. Ken Giles (1-3) took the loss.

                    Houston starter Collin McHugh exited after just three innings because of a fingernail injury. The Astros had won 10 in a row at the Coliseum.

                    MARINERS 4, ANGELS 3

                    SEATTLE (AP) - Ben Gamel hit a three-run homer to give Seattle an early lead, Mike Leake overcame first-inning problems to pitch six solid innings, and the Mariners snapped a three-game losing streak.

                    Leake (2-0) allowed two earned runs and struck out five, as Seattle got a needed victory to continue hanging around the edges of the AL wild-card race.

                    Los Angeles starter Ricky Nolasco (6-13) was unable to make it out of the fourth.

                    NATIONALS 11, PHILLIES 10

                    WASHINGTON (AP) - Michael A. Taylor raced for an inside-the-park grand slam when center fielder Odubel Herrera misplayed his line drive, and Washington eliminated Philadelphia from postseason contention.

                    Herrera misread Taylor's hit off Jake Thompson (1-2) in the third inning, taking a few steps in before leaping as the ball soared over his head. Herrera chased it down on the warning track and threw to the infield, but shortstop J.P. Crawford missed up the third-base line with his relay, allowing Taylor to slide home safely.

                    Taylor set a career high with five RBIs and matched a personal best with four hits. Trea Turner homered and drove in three, and Max Scherzer (14-5) allowed four runs over six innings.

                    Washington has won five straight and reduced its magic number for winning the division to three. Philadelphia is the first team in the majors eliminated from playoff contention.

                    Herrera extended his hitting streak to 21 games, longest in the majors this year.

                    RED SOX 9, RAYS 3

                    BOSTON (AP) - Drew Pomeranz did not allow a hit until the fifth inning and gave up two runs over six and Mookie Betts hit a three-run homer for the Red Sox.

                    It was the third straight victory for the Red Sox, who lead the second-place New York Yankees by 4 1/2 games atop the AL East.

                    Pomeranz (15-5) struck out seven, allowed two hits and walked two en route to tying Chris Sale for the team lead in victories.

                    Jesus Sucre hit a two-run homer for the Rays, who have homered in a season franchise record 18 straight games.

                    Chris Archer (9-9) was roughed up for a season-high eight runs, six earned, and nine hits in three-plus innings.

                    Betts clanged his homer off Pesky's Pole in right field in the first inning.

                    BREWERS 2, CUBS 0


                    CHICAGO (AP) - Ryan Braun hit his 300th homer and Jimmy Nelson combined with three relievers on a five-hitter as Milwaukee beat Chicago in the first regular-season Friday night game at Wrigley Field.

                    Milwaukee pulled within four games of Chicago for the NL Central lead.

                    Braun hit a two-run drive in the first inning against John Lackey. Nelson pitched four-hit ball over five innings before leaving with a sore right arm, and the Brewers opened the weekend series on a winning note after dropping four of five.

                    Nelson (12-6) struck out seven and walked two while winning his third straight start.

                    Corey Knebel worked the ninth for his 33rd save in 38 chances.

                    Lackey (11-11) settled down after Braun connected, holding the Brewers to two runs and four hits over seven innings. He struck out nine and walked two.

                    RANGERS 11, YANKEES 5

                    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Martin Perez won his seventh straight start after playoff-hopeful Texas rallied from an early four-run deficit and beat the AL wild card-leading Yankees.

                    Elvis Andrus had three hits, including the tiebreaking two-run single in the fifth that put the Rangers up 7-5.

                    Perez (12-10) became the first Rangers pitcher to win seven straight starts since Kenny Rogers set the club record in 2005 with eight in a row. The left-hander allowed five runs, only two earned, while giving up eight hits over 5 2/3 innings.

                    Nomar Mazara homered for Texas, which stayed within 2 1/2 games of Minnesota for the AL's second wild card.

                    Andrus, hitting .400 (28 of 70) over his last 16 games, also had two doubles.

                    Masahiro Tanaka (11-11) had won his last three starts.

                    TIGERS 5, BLUE JAYS 4

                    TORONTO (AP) - Third baseman Jeimer Candelario started Detroit's first triple play in 16 years, Nicholas Castellanos slugged his third career grand slam and the Tigers beat Toronto.

                    With runners at first and second, Candelario backhanded Kevin Pillar's grounder and stepped on the bag. Second baseman Ian Kinsler took his feed and made a quick turn for the second out, and his throw to first narrowly beat Pillar for the Tigers' first triple play since Aug. 1, 2001.

                    It was the first time Detroit had a triple play and a grand slam in the same game.

                    Castellanos hit his slam off Marcus Stroman (11-7) in the third inning, and Kinsler added a solo shot in the seventh.

                    Buck Farmer (4-2) allowed two runs, one earned, in five innings. Shane Greene got his seventh save.

                    TWINS 8, ROYALS 5

                    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Eddie Rosario homered and drove in four runs, helping Minnesota beat Kansas City.

                    Rosario had a sacrifice fly in the first inning, hit his 21st home run in the third inning off Ian Kennedy (4-11) and knocked a two-out, bases-loaded single in the fourth. Rosario has 10 home runs and 28 RBIs in his past 30 games.

                    Ervin Santana (15-7) gave up four runs and five hits over five innings for the victory. He is 4-0 in nine starts since a July 21 loss. His 15 victories are tied for the AL lead.

                    Matt Belisle pitched the ninth for his seventh save.

                    CARDINALS 4, PIRATES 1

                    ST. LOUIS (AP) - Luke Weaver pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning and also drove in a run, helping St. Louis improve its postseason hopes.

                    The Cardinals have won seven of nine, pulling within four games of the NL Central-leading Cubs. St. Louis is even closer in the chase for the second wild-card spot.

                    Pittsburgh has lost three in a row.

                    Waver (5-1) has won four straight decisions. He gave up seven hits, walked none and struck out seven in 5 2/3 innings.

                    Juan Nicasio made his St. Louis debut and got four outs for his third save.

                    Trevor Williams (6-8) allowed four runs in 4 2/3 innings.

                    METS 5, REDS 1

                    NEW YORK (AP) - Jose Reyes homered twice, Seth Lugo pitched six shutout innings and New York beat Cincinnati for its third straight win.

                    Travis Taijeron got the Mets started when the 28-year-old rookie led off the second with his first major league home run. New York, which leads the National League in homers, has won 17 of its last 19 games against the Reds - including eight straight at Citi Field.

                    Reyes went deep off Amir Garrett (3-7) in the fifth, scoring Lugo and giving New York a 4-0 lead. Reyes also clubbed a solo shot in the third, becoming the 13th player to hit 100 homers in a Mets uniform.

                    Lugo (6-4) allowed four hits and walked one in his first win since July 25. A.J. Ramos got two outs for his 27th save.

                    CHICAGO (AP) - Pablo Sandoval snapped his 0-for-39 skid with a three-run homer, and Matt Moore pitched San Francisco past Chicago in an interleague game between last-place teams.

                    Denard Span also homered and Brandon Crawford had three hits with an RBI for the Giants, who have won back-to-back games after losing seven of eight.

                    Sandoval went 1 for 3 with four RBIs. His previous hit was a single on Aug. 25 at Arizona.

                    Avisail Garcia homered for the White Sox, who have dropped five straight.

                    Moore (5-13) allowed two runs and five hits in 6 2/3 innings. He won for just the second time in eight decisions.

                    Lucas Giolito (2-2) gave up five runs, three earned, and three hits in 5 1/3 innings. He was ejected by plate umpire Gabe Morales after he was lifted. White Sox manager Rick Renteria also was tossed, by crew chief Eric Cooper.

                    MARLINS 7, BRAVES 1

                    ATLANTA (AP) - Jose Urena allowed only three hits in 6 1/3 innings and added his first career RBI to stop Miami's five-game skid.

                    Urena (13-6) gave up a fourth-inning homer to Freddie Freeman but little else. Atlanta's only other hits off Urena were a second-inning single by Tyler Flowers in the second and a bunt single by Ozzie Albies in the sixth.

                    Miguel Rojas and Urena had back-to-back RBI singles off Mike Foltynewicz (10-12) in the second. Urena took a .077 batting average into the game and had not driven in a run in 69 career at-bats.

                    • LEADING OFF: Yankees-Rays moved to Citi Field; Sale's pitch
                      September 8, 2017

                      A look at what's happening all around the majors today:


                      CLOSER AND CLOSER

                      The Cleveland Indians try for their 17th straight win when Josh Tomlin starts at home against Baltimore. The longest winning streak in major league history is 21 games by the 1935 Chicago Cubs. The defending AL champion Indians have trailed only twice during their string and have outscored opponents 114-28. Gabriel Ynoa, recently recalled from Triple-A, makes his first start this season for the Orioles.

                      GOOD SEATS AVAILABLE


                      Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. at www.Mets.com/Irma and the Citi Field box office for next week's Yankees-Rays series, moved from St. Petersburg, Florida, to the Mets' home ballpark in New York due to Hurricane Irma. Field Level reserved seating will be $25, with no purchase fees. Major League Baseball considered other neutral sites, like Baltimore and Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, but hotel availability was limited in both cities, and in New York only the Rays need lodging. It was the Rays who opened their stadium to Houston and Texas after Hurricane Harvey. Now, they'll be guests of the Mets as the home team in the series. That means the Yankees - who are 2-0 at Citi Field this year, part of their four-game season sweep of the Mets - will again be the visiting team in their own city. Meanwhile, the Mets will be in Chicago to play the Cubs.

                      GOOD AS GOLD

                      Diamondbacks star Paul Goldschmidt was held out of the starting lineup Friday for the fifth straight game because of stiffness in his right elbow. The first baseman says he thinks he could play - he was hitting .314 with 33 home runs and 109 RBIs. Arizona is in firm control of the top NL wild-card spot and had won 13 in a row going into the start of a weekend series vs. the visiting Padres.

                      SALE'S PITCH

                      AL Cy Young Award candidate Chris Sale (15-7, 2.85 ERA) can polish his resume when Boston hosts Tampa Bay. The lanky lefty is a favorite to win his first prize as the AL's best pitcher, but he has struggled recently, going 1-3 with a 5.48 ERA over his past four starts, including a pair of losses to the rival Yankees. He's still piling up the strikeouts, though, and is four shy of matching his career best of 274.

                      PAIR OF 10s

                      Luis Severino and Andrew Cashner go head-to-head in a 12:05 p.m. local start at Texas following a night game in the series opener between the Yankees and Rangers. Severino (12-6) has allowed no more than one earned run in eight of his last 10 starts, going 7-2 with a 2.15 ERA during that span for New York. Cashner (9-9) is 6-2 with a 2.62 ERA in his past 10 starts for Texas.

                      JJ IS OK

                      Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy is off the disabled list after missing nearly three months because of a broken right wrist. He was activated from the 60-day disabled list Friday but didn't start at Cleveland. Hardy is batting .211 with three home runs and 21 RBIs in 64 games this season. Tim Beckham, acquired from Tampa Bay at the July 31 trade deadline, has taken over at shortstop and went into the weekend hitting .359 with seven homers and 20 RBIs since the deal.

                      • Saturday’s six-pack

                        — 85-year old Vince Dooley, the former Georgia football coach, threw out the first pitch before the Brewers-Cubs game. Dawgs play Notre Dame Saturday night, so lot of their fans were in Chicago last night to see the Cubs play.

                        — Indians 5, Orioles 0— Sixteen wins in a row for Cleveland.

                        — As of 9:30 Friday night, there were 2,649 entries in the Westgate Super Contest, at $1,500 a pop. First place will be over a million bucks.

                        — Pablo Sandoval homered last night, ending an 0-for-39 slump that was longest hitless streak EVER by a Giants’ position player.

                        — Miami Dolphins will practice in Los Angeles next week; Jaguars will stay in Houston Sunday nite until they can determine if it is safe to return to Jacksonville.

                        — New York-Tampa Bay 3-game series scheduled for the Trop next week has been moved to Citi Field in NYC because of Hurricane Irma.

                        **************************

                        Saturday’s List of 13: Things I’m looking for this weekend…….

                        13) Ohio State went to Norman and whacked Oklahoma 45-24 LY; now the teams meet in the Horseshoe, with two senior QB’s and two experienced offensive lines.

                        12) Ezekiel Elliott will play; unsure if Odell Beckham (ankle) will, but Giant-Cowboy games are usually fun, which is why they’re always in primetime games together.

                        11) Louisville plays Clemson next week, but first they visit a North Carolina squad that lost as a double digit home favorite to Cal last week. Trap game for the Cardinals.

                        10) Browns cut CB Joe Haden couple weeks ago; Steelers gave him $27M for three years about a half hour later. Haden meets up with his old teammates Sunday when Pittsburgh visits Cleveland.

                        9) Iowa’s offense didn’t look like much last week in a win over Wyoming. Hawkeyes usually beat rival Iowa State, but the Cyclones were 4-1 as a home underdog last year.

                        8) Super Bowl losers usually struggle the next year, especially in season openers (2-12 vs spread the last 14 years). Falcons are favored in Chicago after their 0-4 preseason. Mike Glennon makes his debut at QB for the Bears.

                        7) Pittsburgh beat Penn State last year, but the Panthers needed OT to beat I-AA Youngstown last week. Penn State crushed Akron last week. Revenge could be in the cards in Happy Valley.

                        6) Raiders/Texans both improved a lot last year; then both lost their QB late in the season. Oakland re-tooled its defense a lot in the offseason; this will be a good test for them.

                        5) Stanford has had the upper hand over USC for the last decade now; Trojans need to win this game to stake their claim to the top of the Pac-12. If you’re a Jet fan, watching this game might be more interesting than the game in Buffalo Sunday, seeing how USC’s QB Sam Darnold figures to be the first QB taken in next spring’s draft.

                        4) Jacksonville is going to try and play old school football, running ball more to protect its defense and its suspect QB. Houston Texans have obviously had tremendous distractions the last few weeks; for three hours, the Texans and their fans can block all that out, maybe.

                        3) Mike Riley used to be Oregon State’s coach; he didn’t do that well vs rival Oregon, but now he brings his Nebraska Cornhuskers to Eugene. There have been wildfires in Oregon this week that messed with the air quality in Eugene; the Ducks moved their practices closer to the ocean.

                        2) Can’t wait to see how Jared Goff looks after being coached this summer; Rams-Colts game is a little weird. LA doesn’t have Aaron Donald, its best defensive player. Indy doesn’t have its QB Andrew Luck, or its center.

                        1) Kansas hasn’t been 2-0 in football since 2011; they host a Central Michigan squad here that needed OT last week to beat a I-AA team. Jayhawks are favored to get to that 2-0 mark.
