Preview: Pirates at Brewers
Gracenote
Sep 13, 2018

The Milwaukee Brewers continue to close in on the franchise's first postseason berth since 2011 but are looking at bigger things. The Brewers will try to stay with the Chicago Cubs in the battle for first place in the National League Central when they host the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday in the opener of a three-game series.

Milwaukee, which has one series left against a team with a winning record -- at St. Louis from Sept. 24-26 -- and plays nine of its final 15 games at home, owns the top wild card spot in the NL and is lurking 1 1/2 games behind the Cubs in the Central after taking two of three at Chicago earlier this week. "We won two out of three and put ourselves in a spot where the division is within reach," Brewers manager Craig Counsell told reporters. "You feel like now, really, you take care of your own stuff. You play well, and you feel like you've got a chance to be there." The Pirates are resigned to the spoiler role the rest of the way and will have a say in how the NL Central shakes out with six more against Milwaukee and a four-game set at Chicago down the stretch. Pittsburgh will try to cool the Brewers with right-hander Chris Archer on Friday while going up against Milwaukee lefty Gio Gonzalez.

TV: 8:10 p.m. ET, AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh, FS Wisconsin (Milwaukee)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Pirates RH Chris Archer (4-7, 4.56 ERA) vs. Brewers LH Gio Gonzalez (8-11, 4.40)

Archer turned in quality starts in each of his last two outings but could not get enough run support to find the win column, picking up a pair of no-decisions. The North Carolina native allowed three runs on five hits and three walks in six innings against Miami last Friday while striking out six. Archer endured his worst start since joining Pittsburgh at Milwaukee on Aug. 26, when he was lit up for six runs on seven hits and a pair of walks in four innings.

Gonzalez won his Brewers debut Saturday, striking out seven while scattering three hits and an unearned run across 5 2/3 innings against the San Francisco Giants. The Florida native went winless in his last four starts (0-3) with the Washington Nationals before being traded and struggled all season to find consistency. Gonzalez pitched well at Pittsburgh with the Nationals on July 11, surrendering two runs and six hits in six innings, but suffered a loss while coming out on the wrong end of a 2-0 final.

WALK-OFFS

1. Pirates OF Gregory Polanco underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a dislocated left shoulder.

2. Milwaukee CF Lorenzo Cain is 9-for-17 with four runs scored in the last four games.

3. Pittsburgh rookie INF Kevin Kramer is 1-for-8 with six strikeouts in his last two games.

PREDICTION: Pirates 5, Brewers 4

Preview: Dodgers at Cardinals
Gracenote
Sep 14, 2018

The Los Angeles Dodgers won the series opener and look to pull even for the National League's second wild-card spot when they visit the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday for the second contest of their four-game series. Los Angeles won a 9-7 slugfest on Thursday to put the heat on the Cardinals and remain 1 1/2 games behind first-place Colorado in the NL West.

Manny Machado went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBIs in Thursday's victory, with the blast being his first since Aug. 30. The Dodgers are 4-3 on their 10-game road trip and have scored eight or more runs in three of the victories. The Cardinals, who trail Milwaukee by three games for the first wild card and are 4 1/2 behind the Chicago Cubs for first in the NL Central, are just 5-7 this month after going 22-6 in August. Catcher Yadier Molina (hamstring) returned to the lineup after a six-game absence and went 0-for-1 with a walk before leaving after four innings with St. Louis trailing 8-1.

TV: 8:15 p.m. ET, SportsNet LA (Los Angeles), FS Midwest (St. Louis)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Dodgers RH Walker Buehler (6-5, 3.09 ERA) vs. Cardinals RH Jack Flaherty (8-6, 2.92)

Buehler lost to the Rockies in his last turn as he gave up four runs and six hits over six innings. The 24-year-old is 3-2 with a 4.07 ERA in nine road starts compared to a solid 2.32 ERA in 11 appearances (10 starts) at home. Buehler allowed three hits and registered nine strikeouts over seven scoreless frames in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Aug. 22, when he was matched up against Flaherty.

Flaherty is 4-0 over his last seven starts and has allowed fewer than two runs in five of those outings. The 22-year-old settled for a no-decision in his last turn as he gave up three runs and four hits in five innings against Detroit. Flaherty registered 10 strikeouts while giving up just one hit - a solo homer by Joc Pederson -over six innings in the recent no-decision against the Dodgers.

WALK-OFFS

1. Cardinals RF Marcell Ozuna recorded two hits and two RBIs on Thursday and is 16-for-39 with five homers and 13 RBIs during his nine-game hitting streak.

2. Los Angeles RF Matt Kemp notched two hits in the series opener and is 5-for-13 with three RBIs over his last three contests.

3. St. Louis 3B Jedd Gyorko (groin) went 1-for-5 with an RBI on Thursday in his first start since Aug. 28.

PREDICTION: Cardinals 3, Dodgers 2

Preview: Twins at Royals
Gracenote
Sep 14, 2018

The Kansas City Royals took the first step toward avenging last weekend's series loss and attempt to take another when they host the Minnesota Twins on Friday for the second contest of their four-game set. Kansas City lost two of three in Minnesota before beginning a seven-game homestand with three wins in four contests, including a series-opening 6-4 triumph on Thursday.

Salvador Perez and Jorge Bonifacio hit back-to-back homers during a four-run sixth inning for the Royals, who were held without a hit over the first five frames. Perez also recorded a double as he has hit safely in eight of his last nine contests, registering four home runs and nine RBIs in that span. Rookie Jake Cave notched two of Minnesota's seven hits, including a two-run blast in the second inning, to improve to 6-for-16 during his modest four-game hitting streak. Robbie Grossman doubled and drove in a run for the Twins, who have won their last two series after losing five in a row.

TV: 8:15 p.m. ET, FS North (Minnesota), FS Kansas City

PITCHING MATCHUP: Twins RH Jose Berrios (11-11, 3.83 ERA) vs. Royals RH Jorge Lopez (2-4, 3.72)

Berrios' winless streak reached six starts as he lost his third straight outing Saturday despite allowing just one run and three hits in six innings against Kansas City. The setback dropped the 24-year-old Puerto Rican to 2-1 with a 1.80 ERA in three turns versus the Royals this season and 2-2 with a 4.53 mark in eight career starts. Berrios has not won since defeating Kansas City at home on Aug. 4, when he gave up two runs and five hits over seven frames.

Lopez was the reason Berrios took the loss on Saturday as he carried a perfect game into the ninth inning in Minnesota, but he issued a walk to the leadoff hitter and yielded a single before being lifted. The 25-year-old, who also hails from Puerto Rico, came away with his second straight victory after losing each of his first three starts following his acquisition from Milwaukee in the deal involving Mike Moustakas. Lopez made 10 relief appearances for the Brewers this season but hadn't made a start since 2015, when he got the call in each of his first two major-league appearances.

WALK-OFFS

1. Twins C Mitch Garver was kept out of the lineup Thursday but was progessing nicely, according to manager Paul Molitor, one day after taking a foul ball to the mask that forced his exit from a victory over the New York Yankees and undergoing concussion tests.

2. Perez is the ninth player in Royals history record back-to-back seasons of at least 25 home runs.

3. Minnesota SS Jorge Polanco is 7-for-21 over his last five games.

PREDICTION: Twins 6, Royals 2

Preview: Mariners at Angels
Gracenote
Sep 14, 2018

The Seattle Mariners put together a solid performance in the opener of a 10-game road trip and look to beat the host Los Angeles Angels again Friday in the second contest of a four-game set. Seattle recorded an 8-2 victory over the Angels on Thursday and are 8 1/2 games behind the Oakland Athletics for the American League's second wild-card spot with 16 to play.

Slugger Nelson Cruz smashed a three-run homer for his 50th career blast against the Angels and he stands four away from his fourth career 40-homer campaign. "I guess I've been playing a lot of games," Cruz said in a postgame television interview. "I trust my routine and execute it." Justin Upton homered for the Angels, who lost for only the second time in their past eight games. Mike Trout went 2-for-3 to continue his torrid hitting against Seattle as he is 27-for-59 with six homers, eight doubles, one triple, 10 RBIs, 14 walks and 15 runs scored this season.

TV: 10:07 p.m. ET, ROOT Sports Northwest (Seattle), FS West (Los Angeles)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Mariners TBA vs. Angels RH Matt Shoemaker (2-0, 3.45 ERA)

Original scheduled starter James Paxton is in Seattle after being diagnosed with pneumonia and the club will use the bullpen approach in his absence. Manager Scott Servais declined to reveal who will start during Thursday's postgame press conference. "We'll let you know. Like what, I'm going to text somebody tonight, 'Oh, you're starting' and give them a chance to get nervous?" Servais said. "No reason to. We'll start a bullpen guy. Those guys don't need much heads-up. We'll come up with somebody."

Shoemaker, who recently returned from a forearm injury, is making his first start at Angel Stadium in 15 months. The 31-year-old missed more than five months with the injury and has allowed three runs and nine hits over 10 innings in two outings since his return. Shoemaker is 4-4 with 4.33 ERA in 14 career appearances (12 starts) against the Mariners.

WALK-OFFS

1. Mariners RHP Felix Hernandez (ankle) didn't make the trip to Anaheim but Servais is hopeful the former star will pitch again this season.

2. Los Angeles DH Shohei Ohtani is 14-for-33 with four homers, four doubles and 11 RBIs in September.

3. Seattle SS Jean Segura (illness) has missed three straight contests and OF Cameron Maybin (illness) has sat out the past two.

PREDICTION: Angels 6, Mariners 4

Preview: Rangers at Padres
Gracenote
Sep 13, 2018

Catcher Austin Hedges is putting his best foot forward as he battles rookie Francisco Mejia for a starting role with the San Diego Padres. With two homers during his team's three-game winning streak, Hedges aims to continue his surge at the plate on Friday as the Padres (59-88) begin a six-game homestand with the opener of a three-game series against Texas Rangers (62-84).

"Even last year, I think I did some things that you don't see a whole lot of catchers in the big leagues do," Hedges said after he belted his 13th homer in Wednesday's 5-4 victory at Seattle. "Driving runners in, hitting home runs. Now I think I've taken it up to putting together better at-bats, being able to hit for a better average, a better on-base percentage." Hunter Renfroe matched Hedges with a two-run shot of his own for his third homer in six outings and has hit safely in 16 of his last 18 games heading into a tilt with Texas, against which he went 4-for-11 during the teams' previous series in June. The Rangers won two of those three outings but are mired in a 1-6 stretch following Wednesday's 8-1 setback against the Los Angeles Angels. Joey Gallo launched his team-leading 36th homer for Texas' lone offense, giving him two blasts among his six hits and seven RBIs during a six-game stretch.

TV: 10:10 p.m. ET, FS Southwest (Texas), FS San Diego, FOX Deportes San Diego

PITCHING MATCHUP: Rangers Yohander Mendez (1-1, 5.27 ERA) vs. Padres LH Robbie Erlin (3-6, 4.42)

Mendez answered his first big-league win by overcoming a homer by Khris Davis to keep Oakland hitless the rest of the way in his four-inning start on Saturday. The 23-year-old Venezuelan walked three batters and struck out as many in that contest, matching the sum total in both categories of his previous three appearances in 2018. Mendez will be making his 14th career appearance and first versus San Diego.

Erlin, who leapfrogged fellow left-hander Eric Lauer in the rotation, dropped his third straight start on Saturday after yielding seven runs on eight hits in three innings of a 7-2 setback at Cincinnati. The 27-year-old was taken deep for the fourth consecutive contest after keeping the ball in the park in his previous seven appearances. Erlin received a no-decision at Texas on June 25, allowing one run on three hits in 2 1/3 innings.

WALK-OFFS

1. Texas OF Shin-Soo Choo went 6-for-14 in the previous series against San Diego.

2. Padres 1B Eric Hosmer has three homers, six RBIs and eight runs scored in his last eight games.

3. Rangers C Robinson Chirinos snapped an 0-for-16 streak with three hits on Wednesday, matching his total in six at-bats versus San Diego this season.

Preview: Rockies at Giants
Gracenote
Sep 13, 2018

The Colorado Rockies have kicked it up a notch in pursuit of their first division title in franchise history, posting a 9-3 mark in September to seize a 1 1/2-game lead in National League West. The Rockies (81-65) hope their good fortune travels well as they begin a crucial nine-game road trip against division rivals on Friday with the opener of a three-game series versus the spiraling San Francisco Giants (68-79).

Nolan Arenado homered for the second straight contest in Thursday's 10-3 romp over Arizona, improving to 8-for-20 with seven extra-base hits (four doubles, three homers), seven RBIs and eight runs scored during his last five games. The four-time All-Star is a robust 5-for-11 with two homers and five RBIs in his career against right-hander Chris Stratton for Colorado, which will visit the second-place Los Angeles Dodgers and third-place Arizona to wrap up the road trip. While the Rockies are ascending, the Giants have come up small as their demoralizing 11-game losing skid is the longest for the franchise since 1951. "It's never fun, obviously. Everybody comes out here and puts in the work, grinding daily, trying to do everything we can to win ballgames," said Giants first baseman Brandon Belt, who has seen his team muster just three runs in the last three contests.

TV: 10:15 p.m. ET, AT&T SportsNet-Rocky Mountains (Colorado), NBC Bay Area (San Francisco)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Rockies LH Tyler Anderson (6-8, 4.89 ERA) vs. Giants RH Chris Stratton (9-9. 4.99)

Anderson fell to 0-5 in his last seven outings after allowing four runs and five hits in 2 2/3 innings of a 9-6 setback versus the Dodgers. The 28-year-old was taken deep once in that contest, increasing his home run total to 11 in his last seven trips to the mound. Anderson owns a 1-0 mark with a 3.86 ERA in three appearances against San Francisco this season, highlighted by a dominant performance on July 4 in which he scattered two hits and struck out a campaign high-tying nine in eight innings of a 1-0 win.

Stratton fell to 1-2 with a 2.84 ERA while limiting the opposition to a .200 batting average in four games since being recalled from Triple-A Sacramento. The 28-year-old was taken deep twice and surrendered four runs on as many hits in a 4-3 setback at Milwaukee on Saturday. Stratton owns a 1-1 mark with a bloated 9.82 ERA in three appearances against Colorado this season, with a disastrous eight-run, 11-hit performance resulting in an 8-1 setback on July 3.

1. San Francisco 3B Evan Longoria is 9-for-27 in his last seven games overall and 13-for-41 with two homers and 10 RBIs versus Colorado this season.
