Chicago White Sox at Yankee Stadium

ATLANTA (AP) — Ryan Braun’s spectacular catch in left field was just what the Milwaukee Brewers needed with another potential loss looming.With a runner on second base and the Brewers down one run to the Braves with two outs in the seventh inning Rich Hill Jersey , Braun ran hard to his right and dove to rob pinch-hitter Ender Inciarte of extra bases.Milwaukee followed up Braun’s play with a three-run eighth and got a 4-2 win over Atlanta on Saturday night that will help its NL playoff chances.“I don’t think it’s too much of an exaggeration to say it felt like a season saver,” Braun said. “We’re well aware of where we’re at and how things have gone. Sometimes those things can snowball a little bit.”Mike Moustakas hit a two-run double in the eighth inning and Josh Hader recorded a two-inning save to close out the Brewers’ rally.The Braves began the game leading the NL East by one percentage point over the Philadelphia Phillies and had won nine of 12. Milwaukee snapped a two-game skid and pulled within two games of the NL Central lead.The Brewers’ offense came to life in the eighth. Reliever Jesse Biddle (3-1) let the first batter, Christian Yelich, reach on an error when he dropped the ball at the bag after catching first baseman Freddie Freeman’s underhand toss. Lorenzo Cain singled, and both runners scored on Moustakas’ double.Biddle faced two more batters and gave way to Dan Winkler, who walked his first batter and gave up Erik Kratz’s run-scoring infield single.It was the first time the Atlanta bullpen had blown a save opportunity since June 27 against Cincinnati. Before the eighth, Biddle had a 1.87 ERA in 29 appearances since May 19.“It was one of those days where, shoot, he came out, he threw strikes, and they hit it http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-alex-wood-jersey ,” Braves catcher Kurt Suzuki said. “You’ve got to tip your hat sometimes. Biddle’s been great.”Moustakas, in his 14th game since coming to Milwaukee in a trade with Kansas City, is hitting .285 with eight RBIs in 49 at-bats. But he said Braun’s big grab was the difference.“That catch definitely turned the game for us,” Moustakas said. “It got us going. It got us a little momentum. Seeing him going out and laying out like that and saving the game for the most part, that’s huge. We were able to rally the next inning and let our bullpen do the job.”Hader hadn’t pitched in three days and was plenty rested to make his 16th two-inning appearance and earn his sixth save in such situations this year. He retired all six batter he faced, striking out three to pick up his ninth save in 12 chances overall.Corbin Burnes (3-0) earned the win after facing four batters in the seventh.The Brewers went ahead in the first on Braun’s RBI single to shallow center. Ronald Acuna Jr. tied it by leading off the bottom of the first with his 14th homer, and the Braves made it 2-1 in the fourth when Freeman reached on a double and slid his left leg safely onto the plate to beat a tag attempt on Nick Markakis’ single.Braves starter Julio Teheran allowed one run, two hits and two walks in six innings. He struck out six, improving from a rough three-start stretch in which he gave up 15 runs — 13 earned — over 15 innings.Brewers starter Wade Miley gave up six hits, two runs and one walk with no strikeouts in six innings.STILL HOTBraun went 2 for 3 and is batting .375 with eight RBIs over his last 14 games. … Freeman went 1 for 3 and is batting .360 during a 13-game hitting streak.TRAINER’S ROOMBraves manager Brian Snitker confirmed that RHP Anibal Sanchez will start Tuesday at home against Miami despite getting hit by a liner in his last start and leaving a no-decision at Washington after facing seven batters.LONG SKIDSAtlanta SS Dansby Swanson singled in the seventh, but he’s 3 for 26 this month and his average has dropped 36 points since June 5 to .238. … Milwaukee INF Jonathan Schoop grounded out as a pinch-hitter in the seventh and is 5 for 35 since arriving in a trade from Baltimore.UP NEXTBrewers: RHP Chase Anderson (7-7 Starlin Castro Jersey , 3.81) will pitch for the first time in Atlanta as he makes his fourth career start against the Braves. Anderson received no-decision in his last start, Tuesday against San Diego, allowing four runs and five hits in 4 2/3 innings.Braves: LHP Sean Newcomb (10-5, 3.15 ERA) carried a no-hitter into the ninth inning of his last home start, a 4-1 win over the Dodgers two weeks ago. He is 2-0 with a 1.31 ERA in his last three starts but lost the last time he faced the Brewers, giving up five runs, five hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings July 8 at Milwaukee. BALTIMORE (AP) — Despite all the injuries, and regardless of the deficit they face in the AL East, the New York Yankees won’t let up in their quest to put a strong finish on a heck of a season.Luke Voit went 3 for 3 with a two-run homer to help Luis Severino earn his major league-leading 17th victory, and New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 Sunday night to complete a four-game sweep.The Yankees have won eight of nine to move within six games of first-place Boston in the AL East, the closest they’ve been since Aug. 1. Boston owns the best record in the majors http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-bour-jersey , and New York is a close second .“We’re not thinking about Red Sox,” Severino said. “We’re thinking about our game, and thinking about winning every day. At the end of next month, if it’s going to be close or not, we don’t know. But we’re going to play hard every day.”Rookie Miguel Andujar also had three hits and two RBIs for New York, which outscored the Orioles 27-12 during its first four-game sweep in Baltimore since August 2003.Severino (17-6) allowed four hits and two earned runs in 5 2/3 innings, striking out eight. The right-hander was 2-4 with a 7.26 ERA over his previous six starts before returning to form against the Orioles, who own the worst record in the big leagues (37-94) and rank last in the AL in batting average.“That’s first-half-of-the-year dominant fastball,” manager Aaron Boone said. “The slider was still a little inconsistent for him. But I thought stuff-wise and being able to pitch with his fastball, he was electric. So hopefully another step forward for him.”David Robertson worked the ninth for his fourth save.Even though the Yankees are without slugger Aaron Judge, catcher Gary Sanchez and closer Aroldis Chapman Kyle Barraclough Jersey , they found a way to dispose of the Orioles.“Look, this was really nice,” Boone said. “I tonight, honestly, we were dragging a little bit, just with the road trip and the doubleheader yesterday. So for us to be able to grind that win out…”The Orioles have lost eight straight, one shy of their season high. Baltimore has endured five losing streaks of at least seven games this year.Dylan Bundy (7-13) pitched five innings, giving up four runs and six hits — including his major league-leading 34th home run.“Everybody is frustrated with the way their season is going personally, so it’s affecting us as a team,” Bundy said. “But I think we’re all trying to get better.”Voit got New York started with a two-run drive in the second inning, his third homer with New York since being traded from the Cardinals on July 28. All three long balls have come within the last three games.Andujar doubled in two runs in the third to make it 4-0 http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-wittgren-jersey , and Voit singled and scored on a wild pitch in the sixth for a 5-1 lead.In the Baltimore half, after Trey Mancini hit a leadoff homer , a throwing error by shortstop Gleyber Torres led to Severino’s exit and an unearned run.300 ON HOLDNew York slugger Giancarlo Stanton went 0 for 5 with four strikeouts and remains one homer shy of 300 for his career. He was 1 for 15 with eight strikeouts in the series.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: Sanchez (groin) will begin a rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre. “He’ll be there playing several games this week getting ready to go,” Boone said. … SS Didi Gregorius (left heel) will be evaluated by a doctor Monday. Boone hopes Gregorius and Sanchez will return for a road trip that begins Sept. 3 in Oakland. … Judge is still “waiting for that pain to get out” of his fractured right wrist, Boone said. “Once that fracture is healed, then we go.”Orioles: Rookie CF Cedric Mullins was bothered by a sore hip and missed his first game since being recalled from the minors on Aug. 10. “I’m hoping it’s a short-term thing,” manager Buck Showalter said. Mullins was batting .309 with five doubles and two homers in 15 starts.UP NEXTYankees: Masahiro Tanaka (9-4, 3.90 ERA) starts Monday night in the opener of a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox at Yankee Stadium. The right-hander is 4-0 with a 2.23 ERA in five career starts against the Sox.Orioles: Baltimore concludes the homestand with a three-game set against Toronto beginning Monday.
