Acuna, the dazzling Atlanta rookie, c Antworten

MIAMI (AP) — The Marlins hit Ronald Acuna Jr. Kenny Lofton Jersey , again.They couldn’t hit Sean Newcomb, again.onnected on a 432-foot blast for his 21st home run and got hit by another Miami pitch, though tempers stayed in check this time and the Braves went on to beat the Marlins 5-0 on Thursday night.It was the first meeting between the teams since the Aug. 15 game in which Miami starter Jose Urena earned a six-game suspension by plunking Acuna on his first and only pitch, sparking a melee where dugouts from both sides emptied onto the field twice.This time, no hysterics broke out.“In the moment I was a little upset just because obviously I’d been hit before in the previous series and then I got hit tonight,” Acuna said through a translator. “But, you know, those are things of the game.”In the end, it was more of the same for Newcomb and the Braves when they face the Marlins. Newcomb (11-7) allowed two hits and struck out eight in six shutout innings, improving to 4-0 with a 0.75 ERA in four starts against Miami this season. Atlanta improved to 13-3 against the Marlins this year, now winning each of the teams’ last seven meetings.“Just going with what’s working against them,” Newcomb said. “I’ve been staying aggressive and it’s been good. And it’s a divisional team, see them a good amount, so it’s one of those teams that you kind of step it up a little bit for.”Charlie Culberson and Ender Inciarte also homered for Atlanta , which remained three games ahead of second-place Philadelphia in the NL East.Marlins starter Elieser Hernandez (2-7) lasted three innings, giving up three hits — two of them homers — and three runs. He was relieved by Jarlin Garcia, who departed with one out in the fifth after Atlanta’s Nick Markakis lined a comebacker into his lower right leg and the ball ricocheted into foul ground on the third-base side.“Jarlin got hit pretty good,” said Marlins manager Don Mattingly, who indicated Garcia may miss some time. X-rays were negative.Acuna got hit in the sixth, with the Braves already up 5-0. Javy Guerra was pitching for Miami, and the first seven pitches he threw were strikes.The eighth wasn’t.Guerra’s 94-mph fastball to Acuna was high and tight, and appeared to hit the Atlanta star around the left wrist. Acuna slammed his helmet to the ground and yelled, but eventually made his way to first without any bench-emptying reprise of what happened in Atlanta last week.“I’d be angry too,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “It hurts. But he did exactly what he should do, go to first.”Guerra said he was merely trying to place a pitch, not hit Acuna.“We move on,” Guerra said.The Braves evened things up on the hit-batter front in the bottom of the sixth.Miami’s Brian Anderson got hit by Newcomb with two out. Braves catcher Tyler Flowers set up way inside — his glove behind Anderson, who took the pitch off the left arm. Home plate umpire Chris Conroy warned Newcomb, then both dugouts, and Anderson went quietly to first.Anderson got hit again in the eighth , this time with a 78-mph curveball from Jesse Biddle around the shin. Again, Anderson went to first without much in the way of extracurricular activity.Mattingly said he doesn’t expect any carryover to the final three games of the series.“It’s over,” Mattingly said.TRAINER’S ROOMBraves: C Kurt Suzuki (bruised left triceps) remained out of the lineup. Flowers started again, and played on three consecutive days for the first time since July 1-3.Marlins: OF Lewis Brinson (right hip) and OF/1B Garrett Cooper (right wrist) are nearing returns from the disabled list, and the Marlins are planning to get them around 100 at-bats in the final month.BRAVOThe Braves (72-55 this season, 72-90 in 2017) are the third MLB team to already match or exceed its win total from last year, joining Philadelphia and Oakland. San Francisco (63-66) is one win shy of matching its 2017 total and Boston (90-39) is three wins away from its mark of a year ago. Barring a massive collapse, this will be Atlanta’s first winning season in five years.CALLUP PLANSMarlins staff will discuss Friday who to call up when rosters expand in September — and they will be giving new faces some exploratory looks. “But you’re also playing teams in playoff hunts, and you’re kind of obligated to play your best team,” manager Don Mattingly said.UP NEXTRHP Mike Foltynewicz (10-7, 2.72) goes for Atlanta on Friday night against Miami and RHP Dan Straily (4-6, 4.60). Foltynewicz is 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA against the Marlins this season and 5-1 in his career when facing the Marlins. Straily is 2-1 against the Braves in 2018. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Madison Bumgarner followed up his worst start of the season with one of his best.Bumgarner struck out 11 batters in six innings and also drove in a run with an RBI single that helped lead the San Francisco Giants to a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.Bumgarner (4-7) bounced back from a rough start against the Dodgers when he allowed six runs in 3 2-3 innings with a sharp performance in what could be an audition for a contender looking to add a proven playoff performer down the stretch. The 2014 World Series MVP is in the final year of his contract and the struggling Giants could look to deal their best asset in hopes of adding prospects to the farm system.Article continues below ...“He’s shown that ability so many times to come off a bad start and put it behind him and wash it off and bounce back,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “He did that tonight. What a great game he threw.”Bumgarner said he made some minor adjustments between starts and it paid off. He retired the first 10 batters he faced with six strikeouts before allowing a solo homer to Ian Desmond.The only other run he gave up came in the sixth inning when left fielder Alex Dickerson appeared to lose a fly ball by David Dahl in the lights, leading to an RBI double that cut San Francisco’s lead to 3-2.“I’ve been getting caught just pitching to just one side pretty much every pitch,” he said. “These guys are too good to do that to. The plate is small enough as it is so you better use the whole thing.”Bumgarner preserved the lead by striking out Ryan McMahon to end his first outing with double-digit strikeouts since 2017. Bumgarner allowed two runs, three hits and three walks.Will Smith pitched the ninth for his 21st save in as many chances.Bumgarner also got into the act with his bat when he followed a two-out Danny Salazar Jersey , RBI single by Donovan Solano in the fourth inning against Chi Chi González (0-1) with one of his own to make it 3-1.González, who was making his first appearance in the majors since 2016, struck out the side in order in the first inning. He allowed three runs and six hits in five innings.“It’s a great comeback for Chi Chi from where he’s been,” manager Bud Black said. “He’ll be the first to tell you he wanted better results but when a guy comes back from Tommy John, a long haul back, then get back to the big leagues which is a goal for all players . we were all excited for him. He got off to a good start then it sort of got away from him as the game went on.”Tyler Austin added a pinch-hit homer in the seventh for the Giants to make it 4-2.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: INF Brendan Rodgers was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder impingement after hurting his shoulder on a throw over the weekend in Los Angeles.Giants: SS Brandon Crawford was back in the lineup after getting a day off Monday with mild hamstring tightness.RELIABLE RELIEFThe Giants finished the game with three perfect innings from the bullpen. San Francisco’s relievers have thrown 33 straight scoreless innings in the past eight home games against the Rockies, allowing just 12 hits.LEADING OFFBrandon Belt started as the leadoff hitter for the Giants for just the second time in his career. He struck out on three pitches in his first at-bat but drove in the first run with a sacrifice fly in the third inning. He will stay in the leadoff spot Wednesday.“It didn’t look too smart the first at-bat,” Bochy said. “I told him, ‘You’re supposed to make me look good, but three pitches and you sit down.’ He laughed.”GLOVE GIVEAWAYCatcher Buster Posey hosted 1,000 Junior Giants players before the game, giving each of them a ticket to the game and a free glove. Posey also took questions from the children at a ceremony held in the stands.UP NEXTJeff Samardzija (4-6), who pitched seven scoreless innings at home against the Rockies in April, gets the start in the series finale against German Márquez (7-3).__
