Daniel Murphy #20 of the Washington Nationals game winning double in the tenth inning scores Bryce Harper #34 (not pictured) during a baseball game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Nationals Park on April 14, 2017 in Washington, D.C. The Nationals won 3-2 in ten innings.
"This is going to change".
Shawn Kelley (2-0) relieved with the bases loaded and got Maikel Franco to ground into a forceout. "It is behind us".
"So, you never want to get behind on a guy like that, but I battled the best I could, and got 3-2, got into a pretty good count right there and got a good pitch to hit". He should be even better against them in this meeting as he attempts to get back in the win column.
Harper bashed his second home run of the game - a three-run effort - in the bottom of the ninth to lead the Nationals to a 6-4 win against the Philadelphia Phillies in Major League Baseball on Sunday. It's tough. I wouldn't say demoralizing. "He had a great at-bat against Gomez".
The Phillies suffered a demoralizing 6-4 loss to the Washington Nationals on Sunday afternoon.
He went seven strong innings Saturday, allowing four hits and a pair of runs.
Philadelphia has its own bullpen issues.
"Today I didn't give myself a chance to get ahead (in the count) because the balls weren't moving down", Treinen said. Carrasco gave up two runs, four hits and five walks in 6 2/3 innings.
Mackanin decided not to go with lefty reliever Joely Rodriguez, who was available.
Daniel Murphy went 0 for 4, stopping his 10-game hitting streak.
Though by coincidence in a mysterious and thankless scheduling process, the Phillies would play 12 of their first 15 games against either the Nationals or the Mets.
Anthony Rendon hit an RBI single since in the third, but the Phillies took a 2-1 lead in the fourth after Hernandez and Howie Kendrick both reached on bunt singles.
Pinch-hitter Asdrubal Cabrera tied the score in the ninth with a two-out, two-run single off David Phelps (2-1). However, only one of the runs was earned as an error by left fielder Jayson Werth loomed large. His solo homer just eluded the leaping grab of center fielder Adam Eaton, who is listed at 5 feet 9.
ATLANTA - Bartolo Colon was masterful for seven innings, with the only hit the 43-year-old gave up a homer, and Atlanta improved to 3-0 at SunTrust Park with a victory over San Diego.
Going up against the 2016 NL Cy Young victor and facing the prospect of stumbling to their worst start in 20 years, the St. Louis Cardinals played their best game of the young season. A blown save and a propensity to give up the long ball hasn't helped manager Dusty Baker's team, and fans alike, gain any early confidence. "Whatever works for him". "It makes it a lot easier for us".
White Sox 2, Twins 1: Dylan Covey allowed one run on five hits while pitching into the sixth inning of his big league debut and Matt Davidson hit a solo home run in the seventh to lift Chicago.
One of Gonzalez's most frustrating innings was the top of the third, when he threw 16 pitches and only six strikes.
"I made a mistake and he made me pay", Benoit said. "Do we put a full shift on (the right side of the infield) or keep someone over (to cover the third base side with the runner on second)". While Eickhoff was the team's most consistent and reliable starter in 2016, he had two one-month stretches where he wasn't able to pick up a win.
Chatwood (1-2) struck out four and walked one, lowering his ERA from 6.35 ERA to 3.54. The Phillies have had plenty of trouble getting it to the back of their bullpen with barely five innings per start from the rotation yet it has to comfort Pete Mackanin to know he has reliable people ready to go.
McCutchen's run-scoring grounder brought home pinch runner Alen Hanson in a three-run eighth as the Pirates (6-6) completed their first three-game sweep of the Cubs since September 5-7, 2014.
