SEATTLE (AP) — nd him and returned to his recent form.Ramirez allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings Aaron Judge Jersey , and the Seattle Mariners‘ bullpen shut down the Baltimore Orioles the rest of the way in a 2-1 victory Monday.Ramirez (2-3) allowed two hits, struck out five and walked none. The right-hander is 2-1 in five starts since coming off the disabled list on Aug. 12, but he gave up seven runs on nine hits in three innings against the Padres on Aug. 29.“The only difference tonight is I was throwing better strikes and quality strikes,” Ramirez said. “I attacked the hitters and tried to execute every pitch. I had control of my slider at any point of the count.”That start in San Diego was the only time since Ramirez returned to the rotation that he has allowed more than three runs.“That’s what he’s capable of doing, but it has to be on the edges and not the middle of the plate,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “I thought Erasmo threw the ball really well. He had a good cutter and his command was pretty good.”Edwin Diaz struck out the side in the ninth for his 52nd save and 26th one-run save, both of which lead the majors. Zach Duke, Nick Vincent and Alex Colome combined to pitch 2 2/3 scoreless innings before Diaz finished off the three-hitter.“They battled, but I made good pitches with my slider,” Diaz said. “I just go pitch by pitch. That’s what I tell myself.”Ryon Healy had an RBI single and Dee Gordon added a sacrifice fly, both off Josh Rogers (1-1), who made his second major league start and allowed four hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings.“That’s a really good lineup they got over there Gleyber Torres Jersey ,” Rogers said. “But I was pretty confident the whole time. I was pretty calm and just trying to give the team a chance to win and get deep in the game.”The Mariners were coming off a four-game split at Oakland that dealt a setback to their playoff hopes. The Orioles, who have the majors’ worst record, have lost four straight, scoring two runs or fewer in three of those games.“It’s kind of struggling,” manager Buck Showalter said of the Orioles’ offense. “We face a guy tonight that’s had his issues and we just aren’t swinging the bats very well. We’re getting behind in a lot of counts and swinging at pitches out of the zone, uncharacteristically.”Jonathan Villar homered off the right-field foul pole in the fourth for Baltimore. Healy tied it in the bottom of the inning with a single to center after Rogers walked Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz.Gordon’s go-ahead sacrifice fly followed Cameron Maybin’s leadoff triple to the wall in right-center in the fifth. Maybin had two hits after Servais told him before the game to “let it rip.”“He talked to me about being more aggressive,” Maybin said. “That’s what I did and I’ll continue to work on it. It’s going to take everybody right now down the stretch. Everybody has to bring the energy and have fun and see where the chips fall.”ROSTER MOVESThe Orioles recalled C Chance Sisco and RHP Jimmy Yacabonis from Triple-A Norfolk. Sisco was the DH Monday, going 0-for-3. Yacabonis entered in the sixth and did not allow a hit in 1 2/3 innings.TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: 1B Chris Davis was a late scratch because of an illness.Mariners: LHP Marco Gonzales (strained neck) pitched a bullpen session Monday. Gonzales was placed on the 10-day DL on Aug. 27, retroactive to Aug. 24. “Marco may have one more bullpen outing before we try to bring him back into the rotation,” Servais said. DH Nelson Cruz was in the lineup after fouling a pitch off his right ankle on Sunday. “It’s really sore today, but you can’t keep that guy out of the starting lineup,” Servais said.UP NEXTRHP Alex Cobb (4-15 Tyler Austin Jersey , 5.11 ERA) will make his 26th start of the season Tuesday for the Orioles. Since Aug. 1, Cobb is 2-1 with a 2.66 ERA in six starts, including a complete-game victory on Aug. 18. LHP Wade LeBlanc (8-3, 3.71) will make his 23rd start of the season for the Mariners. LeBlanc pitched seven scoreless innings in a 7-1 win at Oakland on Aug. 30. CINCINNATI (AP) — During Yasiel Puig’s six seasons in LA, the Dodgers won at least 91 games and made the playoffs each year, reaching the World Series twice. The outfielder knows nothing but winning at the major league level.Hello, Cincinnati.An offseason trade transplanted Puig to the other side of the country and the standings. He’s now playing for a Reds team that’s lost at least 94 games for four straight years and has taken up full-time residency in the NL Central basement.The weather is very different in Cincinnati. So is what passes for chili. The baseball? Puig will soon find out if that’s palatable, too.“I’ve been with the Dodgers for six years, and six straight years we’ve been in the playoffs,” Puig said during a visit on a subzero winter day to look for a house. “I hope this is not a year we’re going to be out in October, you know? I come here to bring this team to the playoffs again.”He’s got some reinforcements joining him. The question is whether they’ll be enough to make much of a difference.The Reds are trying to morph from down-and-out rebuilder to overnight contender. They made three offseason deals, including one that brought Puig http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , Matt Kemp and left-hander Alex Wood from the Dodgers. They overhauled their rotation and their outfield in an attempt to become relevant again.It’s an unusual strategy for a rebuilding team. Four of the players they acquired are eligible for free agency after next season, along with second baseman Scooter Gennett, their best hitter the last two years, so there’s no telling what comes next.For now at least, the Reds are worth watching again.“We’re going to do something better,” Puig promised.Some things to watch as the Reds celebrate the 150-year anniversary of fielding the first professional baseball team and open the season at home against the Pirates:FAMILIAR NAME AND NUMBER: First-year manager David Bell gives the Reds a little nostalgia in the dugout. Bell’s grandfather, Gus, and father, Buddy, played for the Reds. He’s wearing their No. 25. Bell significantly changed the players’ routines in spring training, and he explored using reliever Michael Lorenzen in center field, another indication he’s open to new things. He’ll get a lot of the focus in his first season managing in the majors.NEW FACES: The starting rotation has been the biggest problem the last few years Miguel Andujar Jersey , and it has a whole different look with the addition of Wood from the Dodgers, Sonny Gray from the Yankees and Tanner Roark from the Nationals. Often-injured Anthony DeSclafani and Luis Castillo are the holdovers. If the rotation can be merely above-average, the bullpen and the offense are good enough to get the Reds back to respectability in a tough division.VOTTO: Former NL Most Valuable Player Joey Votto is coming off one of his worst seasons with only 12 homers, 67 RBIs and a .284 average. The Reds’ highest-paid player — he’s owed $25 million annually through 2023 — turns 36 in September. He said last season was “a bit of a shock,” and he worked on his swing in the offseason. A return to his norm would help the Reds’ offense significantly.ROOKIE TO WATCH: Infielder Nick Senzel was taken second overall in the June 2018 amateur draft, Cincinnati’s highest pick since 1983. The Reds are trying to turn him into a center fielder who could fill Billy Hamilton’s role. How quickly he settles in at his new spot will be one of their more interesting subplots.JULY: Gennett was interested in getting an extension over the offseason, but the Reds were taking more of a wait-and-see approach to how things turn out. Most of the players they acquired in offseason trades also are eligible for free agency after the season, which leaves the Reds in an interesting spot. What will they do when the trading deadline approaches in July? How much will their position in the standings dictate their financial decisions? It’ll be a very interesting month in Cincinnati.
