, who won their fourth straight, 5-3, in the opener Friday, need to win what would seem to be an attainable but hardly simple 12 of their final 21 games to finish over .500.Things are bleaker for the Marlins (56-85), who have lost three of five. They need to win seven of their last 21 games just to avoid losing 100 games for the third time in team history.Article continues below ...“No one wants to be part of a 100-loss team,” starter Dan Straily said going into what was a no-decision Friday. “Everyone in this room should want to avoid 100 losses. There’s only way not to do that.”The Marlins hit triple digits in losses in 1998 (54-108) and 2013 (62-100).Straily left in the fifth Friday with a strained left oblique but is considered day to day, the club said.Pittsburgh might have hit a setback Friday when right fielder Gregory Polanco left the field with some assistance in the sixth after an awkward leaping slide into second on a double. The Pirates reported he had pain in his left knee and left shoulder.Miami left-hander Wei-Yin Chen (6-9, 4.64 ERA) is scheduled to start against right-hander Ivan Nova (7-9, 4.35 ERA) Saturday.Chen has thrown more than 100 pitches in three of his past four starts. He is coming off a 6-3 win last Saturday against Toronto when he held the Blue Jays to one run and three hits, tied a career high with eight innings pitched and at one point retired 14 batters in a row.“He’s been really good for a while now,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “It’s good to see that confidence in him. We’re seeing a guy that we thought we had a couple of years back before all this elbow stuff went down.”Chen has no lingering issues from elbow and shoulder problems that plagued him in recent years.“I probably feel the best over the last two or three years,” he said, adding that he’s also putting a big effort into preparation.“I’ve been trying to study hitters, watch videos دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, and talk to (catcher J.T. Realmuto) a lot. I do the homework day in and day out, and I think that helps me execute the pitch during the game.”Saturday’s game will be a test of whether he can do that on the road. He has a 1.77 ERA in 12 home starts, but a 9.35 ERA in 10 road starts.Nova’s last start was supposed to be Sunday, but instead he was granted a leave from the team for personal reasons.He has not pitched since Aug. 28, when he gave up four runs and six hits in 3 2/3 innings in a 5-2 loss to St. Louis. The Cardinals had 11 runners against him, five of them reaching on doubles.“It was on and off, on and off. I didn’t put it together, and it wasn’t my best effort,” Nova said.He is 5-5 with a 3.87 ERA over his past 14 starts.The Marlins might be a timely opponent. Nova is 3-0 with a 1.25 ERA in three career starts against Miami, including a 7-3 win April 15 when he struck out nine. Corey Kluber can take another step toward a third Cy Young Award when he opens the Cleveland Indians‘ three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night at Tropicana Field.But the ace right-hander can do something else even more important — pitch his team even closer to clinching the American League Central.It won’t be easy against the red-hot Rays.Article continues below ...Tampa Bay, still a long-shot wild-card hopeful, completed a sweep of a three-game series with an 8-3 victory against the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday. The Rays have won seven of their last eight and 16 of their last 19 games, are 14 games above .500 for the first time this season and have won a franchise record-tying 11 straight in their building.They are 32-8 at the Trop since June 11.The Rays, who outscored the woeful Orioles 32-10 in three games دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, are 24-11 since the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.“Good way to wrap up the series,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said after Sunday’s game. “We had an opportunity to (get a three-game sweep) in Toronto and fell a little bit short. Today, the guys came out and put some pressure on their young pitcher (Josh Rogers), which is good to see. Brandon Lowe with the big (three-run) home run. Kind of the separator right there.”Despite losing in Toronto and the Twins winning at home Sunday, the Indians, running away with their division, are in position to clinch in St. Petersburg. Their magic number is five, so it’s clearly just a matter of time.The Rays went to Cleveland from Aug. 31 through Sept. 2 and won twice, losing only to Kluber, who allowed no runs and two hits in seven innings.Kluber (18-7, 2.75 ERA), who is 2-0 with an 0.66 ERA in his last two starts, goes for his MLB-leading 19th victory. He is 7-1 in his last nine starts as he tries to hold off other Cy contenders, including Tampa Bay’s Blake Snell.Kluber is 5-2 with a 2.17 ERA in nine career games against the Rays and 2-1 with a 3.38 in four starts at Tropicana Field.Reliever Diego Castillo will be the “opener” for the Rays on Monday night for the second time in three days as Tampa Bay goes to its new formula for success for the third straight game.MVP candidate Jose Ramirez provided a Cleveland highlight in Sunday’s loss دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.
, joining Joe Carter and Grady Sizemore as the only Indians players with 30 home runs and 30 steals in a season.“I feel really happy about that,” Ramirez said through a translator. “I kind of feel the same way about both (homers and steals).”Teammate Francisco Lindor, who hit his 34th homer of the season, said, “Not a lot of people do it in history. It’s a special number. He’s having a great season, and I’m very happy for him.”The current Rays roster is a combined 11-for-57 (.193) against Kluber. Carlos Gomez, who homered Sunday, is 1-for-8 (.125), but the hit was a home run. Ji-Man Choi is 1-for-7 (.143).The Indians are expected to activate Andrew Miller from the 10-day disabled list before Monday night’s game. He has been out — for the second time this season — with a left shoulder injury since Aug. 29.Tommy Pham, bothered by a hamstring, started at DH for the Rays on Sunday and extended his hitting streak to a career-high 13 games.
