we had some tough luck Antworten

A look at what’s happening around the majors today:ASCENDING ASTROAlex Bregman has homered in three straight games for Houston , part of his surge since making the All-Star team. The third baseman has reached base safely in 31 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the majors, and looks to extend the string at home vs. Minnesota. Bregman tops the AL West leaders with his career-high 28 home runs and has 72 extra-base hits, the most by an Astros player since Lance Berkman’s 79 in 2008.OHTANI UPDATEThe Angels are hopeful Shohei Ohtani will make his next start as scheduled Sunday at Chicago against the White Sox. The two-way rookie was evaluated a day after making an early exit in his return to the mound. He was pulled after 2 1/3 innings at Houston when his velocity drastically dropped — Ohtani hadn’t pitched in the majors since June 6 because of a strained right elbow.Ohtani, who continued to be a designated hitter while his elbow recovered, wasn’t in the starting lineup Monday night at Texas. That’s been the pattern on days after he pitches.LISTLESS LINDORFrancisco Lindor thinks the Indians need a spark. The star shortstop said after a 5-1 loss to Kansas City on Monday that Cleveland’s “energy is down.” The Indians have lost three straight but still lead the AL Central by 14 games. Their magic number to clinch the division was trimmed to 12 after Minnesota’s loss to Houston.“I don’t know why,” Lindor said. “Personally, my energy is down. We’re at that point in the season where guys are dragging their feet a little. We have to go back to playing the Tribe Way and not taking any pitch for granted. We’ll be fine.”CLOSING DOWNCardinals closer Bud Norris is likely to get a day off after two straight poor outings. Norris gave up a tying home run to Bryce Harper in the ninth inning at Washington on Monday, and the Nationals won in the 10th. On Sunday Blake Swihart Jersey , Norris was tagged for two homers and three runs in the 10th inning by the Reds in a loss at Busch Stadium. Norris is 28 for 33 on save chances.REINFORCEMENTSThird baseman Rafael Devers and infielder Brandon Phillips are set to join the Red Sox in Atlanta for their game between division leaders. Devers has been on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring. The 37-year-old Phillips, who went to high school in the Atlanta area, will make his Boston debut. Phillips signed with the Red Sox in late June.NICE STARTYankees lefty J.A. Happ (15-6, 4.00 ERA) pitches at Oakland in what could be next month’s matchup for the AL wild-card game. Happ is 5-0 with a 3.38 ERA in six starts since being traded from Toronto to New York in late July. SAN DIEGO (AP) If he keeps pitching this well, Derek Rodriguez will be in the discussion for the NL Rookie of the Year Award.”That would be one thing that my dad never got, so that would be nice,” Rodridguez, the son of Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez, said after pitching seven strong innings in the San Francisco Giants‘ 3-2 , 10-inning victory against the staggering San Diego Padres on Tuesday.Brandon Crawford singled in the go-ahead run with two outs in the 10th inning and Andrew McCutchen homered for the Giants, who swept the two-game series and won their third straight game.Rodriguez was in line for his sixth victory against one loss before Reyes Moronta allowed the Padres to tie it at 2 in the eighth on Manuel Margot’s RBI grounder.Rodriguez held San Diego to one run and three hits while striking out a career-high seven and walking three. It was the second time in 10 big league starts that he went seven innings.Rodriguez settled down after allowing Wil Myers‘ single and Eric Hosmer’s RBI double with two outs in the first. The Padres got a runner as far as second only one other time against Rodriguez.He gave the Giants a solid effort a day after they had to go 13 innings to beat the Padres. Rodriguez threw 112 pitches.”I just went out there and pitched my game. They asked me in the top of the seventh if I felt good and I did and I went out there for the seventh,” he said. ”I don’t think I’ve ever thrown that many pitches in my life. That was a good one.”Manager Bruce Bochy marveled about how reliable Rodriguez has been since making his big league debut on May 29. His 2.59 ERA ranks first among NL rookie pitchers.“It’s a shame we couldn’t get a win for him with that effort,” Bochy said. ”But we had some tough luck. The first five innings we hit the ball hard but didn’t have much to show for it. He kept it close.”The Padres lost their seventh straight, dropped to 2-9 since the All-Star break and lost for the 14th time in 16 games. San Diego finished July at 5-20, their second worst month by percentage in club history.”It’s been a struggle,” Padres manager Andy Green said. ”Those guys in there are giving absolutely everything they’ve got. I think the harder thing for us has been flushing the previous days and not letting that carry-over effect, kind of the hangover effect, of not getting it done , impact the next day’s at-bats. It’s human nature. As professionals at this level we got to do a better job flushing that, leaving that behind.”Evan Longoria tripled leading off the 10th against Phil Maton (0-2) and scored on Crawford’s single to right.Tony Watson (4-4) pitched a perfect ninth for the win, and Will Smith pitched the 10th for his sixth save.McCutchen homered to right leading off the fifth versus lefty Clayton Richard, his 11th. Gorkys Hernandez hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth.Richard allowed two runs and five hits in five innings, walked three and struck out one.Green said the pitching staff kept the team in the game.”Can’t expect a staff to hold a team down into extra innings every single day and give the opportunity to keep coming back,” he said. ”We’ve just got to string together a lot more constructive at-bats if we want to win baseball games.”TRAINER’S ROOMPadres: Placed rookie LHP Eric Lauer on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left forearm and recalled RHP Walker Lockett from Triple-A El-Paso.STILL HEREReliever Kirby Yates, who pitched the ninth, had been one of a trio of Padres pitchers rumored to be on the trade block. None of them were moved.”I mean, honestly I didn’t think anything was going to happen Jason Heyward Jersey ,” Yates said. ”I want to be part of this movement that sticks around for the next few years.”UP NEXTGiants: LHP Madison Bumgarner (3-4, 3.06) is scheduled to start the opener of a four-game series at Arizona on Thursday night.Padres: LHP Robbie Erlin (1-3, 3.47) is scheduled to start the opener of a four-game series at the Chicago Cubs on Thursday night. He replaces Luis Perdomo, who went on the disabled list with a shoulder injury Saturday.—
