helping the Philadelphia Phillies rout the Nationals 12-2 on Friday night.
Herrera hit a tiebreaking two-run shot in the third for his 13th homer,
matching the club record for consecutive games with a long ball. He has
connected in six of his last seven overall.
The All-Star Game is at Nationals Park on July 17, and Herrera is putting
together a solid case for a spot on the NL squad.
”I’m playing hard, giving my best, so if it happens it’ll be great,” he said
via an interpreter. ”That’s what you work for.”
Herrera is hitting .472 (17 for 36) with six homers, 11 runs and 10 RBIs in
his last eight games. His season batting average is up to .308.
”I don’t think there’s any words for it. I mean it’s simply incredible what
he can do,” Phillies pitcher Zach Eflin said.
”The thing with Odubel is that he can shake off anything at any given time. …
It can look like he’s struggling and then next pitch he hits it 440 feet.”
Carlos Santana homered and drove in four runs for Philadelphia. Andrew Knapp
also connected and Nick Williams drove in three runs.
The Phillies had 15 hits in their fifth win in six games. They also moved
ahead of Washington for second place in the NL East behind Atlanta.
”To me, today was the first game where we really got blown out. That was a
blowout right there,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. ”We’ve just got to
keep our heads up, guys go home and rest http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.com/jahlani-tavai-jersey-authentic ,
come back tomorrow and do it again.”
Eflin (5-2) allowed baserunners in every inning except the first but limited
the damage to two runs over five innings in his fourth straight win.
Washington’s Tanner Roark (3-8) gave up six runs in 4 1/3 innings, and the
Nationals needed four relievers to finish the game.
”The last two starts I’ve left the bullpen out to dry,” Roark said, ”and I’m
just not happy about it.”
The Nationals have dropped eight of 11, including the completion of a
suspended game. They are in third place this late in the season for the first
time since 2013.
Michael A. Taylor extended his hitting streak to 13 games and drove in
Washington’s first run when he capped an 11-pitch at-bat with a double in the
HARPER DERBY BOUND
On Friday afternoon the Nationals tweeted: ”tfw Bryce announces he’ll do the
(at)MLB HR Derby if he makes the NL All-Star team…” accompanied by a GIF of
Harper celebrating in the dugout.
Chase Utley (twice in 2008), Bobby Abreu (2005), Mike Schmidt (1979) and Dick
Allen (1969) also homered in five straight games for the Phillies. Ken Griffey,
Jr. (1993), Don Mattingly (1987) and Dale Long (1956) share the major league
record with homers in eight consecutive games.

Philadelphia RHP Aaron Nola (8-2, 2.55 ERA) opposes RHP Erick Fedde (0-2,
5.63 ERA). Nola (seventh overall) and Fedde (18th overall) were both selected in
the first round of the 2014 draft.
The Red Sox ace said he didn’t hear the boos and insults.
By the second inning, the catcalls weren’t for him T.J.
Hockenson Jersey , anyway.
Sale pitched his latest Bronx gem, Rafael Devers went 5 for 5 with a
first-inning grand slam and Boston held New York to two hits during an 11-0 rout
Saturday night to take back baseball’s best record.
Sale (8-4) allowed only Giancarlo Stanton’s clean single over seven innings,
striking out 11. He has a 1.73 career ERA against the Yankees, best among
pitchers with at least 10 starts against them since 1920. His ERA at Yankee
Stadium is 1.86, second only to Seattle’s Felix Hernandez among pitchers with
”He looks like the best pitcher in the big leagues right now,” Red Sox
manager Alex Cora said.
Boston is a major league-leading 56-28, just ahead of the Yankees at 53-27.
New York held the best mark by percentage points after winning Friday’s series
Yankee Stadium hosted a season-high sellout of 47,125, and the crowd ripped
into starter Sonny Gray (5-6) after he gave up six runs in 2 1/3 innings. The
right-hander dropped to 0-4 with a 9.35 ERA against Boston since being acquired
by New York from Oakland last season.
”I expect to come out and perform and make it fun,” Gray said. ”The way I’ve
thrown the ball, I don’t think it’s been fun. I feel like we’re the best team in
baseball four out of five days, and then I come out and do that.”
Devers had a career-best five hits. He nearly socked another homer in the
seventh http://www.thebroncosfootballauthentic.com/dre_mont-jones-jersey-authentic ,
but right fielder Aaron Judge reached over the wall and knocked Devers’ shot
back into play with his glove. Devers ended up with a double following a video
Since June 5, the 21-year-old Devers has raised his OPS from .675 to
”We take it for granted because he’s talented and did what he did last year,
but he’s still a kid,” Cora said, adding that Devers has been working hard with
Boston’s staff to shore up the holes left in his game from racing through the
minor leagues. ”He’s staying with the program.”
Sandy Leon brought in Devers with a two-run homer into the second deck in
right field. J.D. Martinez had three hits and three RBIs, and Mookie Betts added
two hits and two walks as Boston piled up 17 hits.
Heath Hembree and Hector Velazquez closed it out with a hitless inning each.
Velazquez gave up a groundball single to Gleyber Torres in the ninth for New
York’s second hit.
New York had won seven consecutive games against left-handed starters and was
a major league-best 19-5 against them this season, but Sale had them spinning.
The Yankees hit just four balls out of the infield against Sale, and he retired
his final 16 batters.
”Got punched in the face last night, so you obviously want to respond well,”
Judge struck out three times against the lefty in three at-bats, giving him
13 punchouts in 18 career at-bats against Sale. That’s the most strikeouts for
Judge against any pitcher.
Torres also struck out three times against Sale during his first career start
in the leadoff spot. This was the fourth time New York was shut out this season,
all in the past 18 games.
Gray quickly disposed of Betts and Andrew Benintendi to open the
game http://www.cardinalscheapstore.com/byron-murphy-jersey-cheap ,
but a well-placed grounder by Martinez sparked a big first inning. After
Martinez’s infield single, Mitch Moreland’s walk and Xander Bogaerts‘ single,
Gray floated a waist-high 1-2 curveball that Devers lofted just over the
left-field wall. It was Devers’ second career slam – both this season – and his
14th homer of the year.
Benintendi and Martinez each added an RBI in the second, and Yankee Stadium
fans jeered loudly as Gray walked off in the third.
Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. caught Aaron Hicks’ drive in the
third while leaping and slamming into the wall in front of New York’s
Red Sox: Boston reliever Tyler Thornburg pitched two innings for Double-A
Portland on Friday and a clean inning Saturday with Triple-A Pawtucket, perhaps
a final hurdle for the right-hander before he returns to the majors following
surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome last June.
Yankees: Hicks was visited by a trainer after being hit by a pitch on his
right foot or ankle in the first inning. He remained in the game. … C Austin
Romine was pulled in the seventh inning and sent for a precautionary MRI with
left hamstring tightness. Results were negative, and he is day to day.
After the game, the Yankees optioned RHP Giovanny Gallegos to Triple-A
Boston LHP David Price (9-5, 3.66 ERA) and Yankees ace Luis Severino (12-2,
2.10) square off in prime time Sunday. Price is 7-1 with a 2.72 ERA in nine
starts since being diagnosed with a mild case of carpal tunnel syndrome that
caused him to miss a turn against the Yankees in early May. Severino had his
worst start this season vs. Boston on April 10, allowing five runs in five
innings, but then matched a season high with 11 strikeouts in a strong outing
against the Red Sox on May 8.
