    PHILADELPHIA — The Mets took the phrase “never say die” to a completely different planet. Down six runs in the ninth, the Mets put together a seven-run rally against two Phillies pitchers, including closer Corey Knebel, to mount the comeback of all comebacks. It was pandemonium in the City of Brotherly Love as the Mets beat the Phillies, 8-7, at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday night in the unlikeliest win of their season to date. “I’m trying not to be giddy,” said the typically business-as-usual manager Buck Showalter. “That’s a good club over there. We’ll make everybody know that as long as we got some outs, we got a chance. “A night like tonight makes you realize what could be.” Starling Marte began and ended the rally when he led off the ninth inning with an infield single to short. When the Mets batted around the order, Marte put the punctuation mark on the game with a go-ahead RBI double off the centerfield wall to score a hustling Brandon Nimmo from first. But, in the clubhouse after the game, Showalter...
    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — By the midpoint of last season, the three pitchers — and lockermates — who made up the back end of the Giants’ bullpen had developed an inside joke. Seemingly every game, Dominic Leone would work the seventh. Tyler Rogers would work the eighth. And the ninth belonged to Jake McGee. “We were like the ‘Big 3′ toward the end of the season,” McGee said recently, with Rogers seated to his right and Leone to his left inside the home clubhouse of Scottsdale Stadium, an arrangement that mirrors the one inside Oracle Park. But then, in August, McGee strained his oblique, sidelining him for a month and opening the door for Camilo Doval and his 100-mph fastball to establish himself as the preferred ninth inning option. McGee saved 31 games, but when time came for manager Gabe Kapler to turn to a reliever late in all three National League Division Series games that the Giants led, it was Doval who got the call. So, is there room for a Big Four? “It’s definitely interchangeable,” McGee said. “(Doval) is...
    Wednesday, October 20, 2021. 12:34 p.m. Summary BOSTON – Jose Altwe scored a draw in the eighth inning and the ninth Houston offense on Tuesday night arose with seven runs. The American Championship Series is tied with two wins on each side. “Now it’s a three-game series with two home games,” Alway said after the game. In a series dominated by Boston offense in particular, the teams traded home runs in the first inning, and then both pitchers hit six zeros in a row on the Fenway Brock scoreboard. Carlos Correa doubled Jason Castro’s single after two strikeouts in ninth place. But it was a start for Houston, with Boston intimidating his pitchers with 10 home runs from the start of the series, including three Grand Slam records in two matches. “They’ve been doing it for us throughout this series,” said Astros manager Dusty Baker. We can do the same. “ After Alex Breckman scored a solo Homer in the Green Monster seat in the first inning, Sander Bogarts sent a ball down Lance Town Street to...

    The Boston Red Sox blew a 7-1 lead to the Rays while giving up the game-tying run in the ninth inning on an inside-the-park home run. It’s funny how quickly fortunes can change in baseball. One minute, you’re scoring six runs in the second inning to take a commanding lead against a division rival. The next, you’re giving up an inside-the-park home run to tie the game in the ninth inning. A loss under any circumstances would have produced the same results for Boston, but to do it in such a ridiculous way only pours salt on the wound. Next: Playoff bracket if the season ended now

    The left handed Andrew Heaney surprised many fans of the New York Yankees with a brilliant outing against the Boston Red Sox in the MLB. Heaney allowed a home run by Xander Bogaers in the first inning, after that he did not allow more touchdowns in 7 innings he pitched, leaving the game in the hands of Zach Britton who threw a perfect eighth inning, but the same did not happen with Aroldis Chapman. Chapman received the game 5-1 in the ninth inning, that’s when Hunter Refore hit a solo home run, Xander Bogaers walked and JD Martinez had another hit. Aroldis Chapman had no choice but to deliver the ball to Lucas Luetge with two running backs and two outs in the MLB.

    New York Yankees: 3 Major takeaways from the Yankees sweep of the White Sox William Parlee May 24, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees went into last night’s finale with the Chicago White Sox hoping for a sweep after two successful starts against the AL Central’s top team. And a sweep is what they got, it wasn’t easy, but nevertheless, they got their second sweep of the season. Annoyingly the Sox kept fighting back, but in the end, a Walk-off walk did them in. The final score was the New York Yankees 5 and the Chicago White Sox 4. Going into the ninth inning, the Yankees had gone 23-0 after leading in the eighth inning, and it took a walk-off walk by Aaron Judge in the bottom of the ninth to make it 24-0 after eight. It was Aaron Judge’s first walk-off win of his career. Jameson Taillon got the job done Jameson Taillon found out early in the game that his four-seam fastball was working, and he stuck with it getting...
    OAKLAND — Ramon Laureano hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday night to enable the Athletics to retain their hold on first place with a 6-5 win over the Houston Astros at the Coliseum. Laureano’s fly ball to center scored Mark Canha, who opened the inning with a walk and advanced to third on a single by Seth Brown, sending the crowd of 4,838 home happy. The Athletics, 26-17, are 1 1/2 games up on Houston, which was hoping to move in to first place. Yusmeiro Petit (5-0) pitched a scoreless top of the ninth and was the winning pitcher. Laureano hit a pair of home runs for the Athletics, his ninth and 10th of the season, while Matt Olson hit his 10th in the sixth inning. Kyle Tucker hit his 10th home run for Houston. Starting pitcher Sean Manaea, who was at his best during his last two innings of work, ended up with a no decision after giving up 10 hits and three earned runs in six innings. He...
    Matt Chapman was the hero of the day for the A’s, hitting a go-ahead double in the ninth inning off closer Diego Castillo to score Jed Lowrie from first base and secure the A’s 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday. With the win, the Oakland A’s split a close four-game series with the Rays at Tropicana Field. Of the four games, the largest margin of victory was the Rays’ two-run win on Wednesday. The rest came within one run. Chapman had given the A’s a 2-1 lead earlier off Rays starter Shane McClanahan. In his first Major League start, Tampa’s top pitching prospect McClanahan first inundated the A’s with a fastball that, at times, reached 101 mph with movement and a mid-90s mph slider. But the A’s lineup fought fire with fire. Tony Kemp singled off him to lead off the third and moved to second on a wild pitch, but he was tagged out at home from second on Mark Canha double. Ramón Laureano scored Canha on a first-pitch double into the...

There are always situations in flux and developments to discuss, but it hasn't been complete pandemonium the way it was most of last year.

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — In a condensed 60-game season in which the Giants won 29 games, five different pitchers recorded a save for first-year manager Gabe Kapler. Four of those pitchers –Trevor Gott, Tyler Rogers, Sam Coonrod and Tony Watson– had multiple saves, but for much of the season, the Giants didn’t have a reliever emerge as the preferred candidate to preserve a ninth-inning lead. Kapler’s closer-by-committee approach wasn’t necessarily popular with fans, but it did allow the Giants to learn a lot about a young bullpen and which relievers were capable of handling the stress of high-leverage situations. What exactly did a front office led by Farhan Zaidi determine? The Giants needed more veteran arms. As the club prepares for the 2021 season in which ending a four-year playoff drought is the team’s primary objective, left-hander Jake McGee has become the front-runner to be the Giants’ closer. “I’d be very comfortable with Jake McGee in the ninth inning based on his track record, his composure, his track record, his success so far this camp,” Kapler...

    Authorities investigating large religious event in Nashville with maskless crowds Best sales in October on home goods, appliances, tech and more. The Dodgers World Series hopes could hinge on sorting out ninth-inning pitching crisis It seems we've been asking this same question every October since 2013: Who or what can stop the Los Angeles Dodgers from winning a World Series? Unfortunately for the Dodgers, the answer to that question has also proven to be repetitive. More often than not, it's the Dodgers themselves. Each successive season during this run, nearly a decade long now, has led L.A. to the same destination — disappointment. And there's one glaring reason that trend could continue in 2020. We’ll phrase this new concern in the form of a different, more optimistic question: If the Dodgers do manage to win the 2020 World Series, who will manager Dave Roberts have called upon to get the final out? It’s a question Roberts admittedly didn’t have an answer to before Los Angeles opened the National League Championship Series — its fifth in eight seasons — Monday...
    SAN FRANCISCO — The last-place San Francisco Giants dominated the first-place Oakland A’s for eight innings at Oracle Park on Friday, smacking three home runs and cruising to a five-run advantage thanks to a smooth outing from starter Johnny Cueto. Baseball games, of course, don’t end after eight innings. Another jaw-dropping defensive mistake from a Giants defense that has made dozens in the first three weeks of the season gave life to an Oakland rally before A’s right fielder Stephen Piscotty clubbed a game-tying grand slam in the top of the ninth against Giants closer Trevor Gott. With a new extra-inning rule in effect, the A’s took their first lead of the game without recording a 10th inning hit thanks to a Mark Canha sacrifice fly and held on to deliver the Giants a crushing 8-7 defeat after closer Liam Hendriks shut down San Francisco’s offense. With one on, one out and one already in thanks to Matt Olson’s solo home run into the left center field bullpen in the top of the ninth, Gott induced a grounder to first...
    New York Yankees Recap: Judge wins it for the Yankees in the ninth By: William Parlee July 31, 2020 PrevPreviousNew York Yankees receive great news on Gleyber Torres injured elbow ShareTweet0 SharesIn the New York Yankees game last night with the Baltimore Orioles, all the predictors were way off.  It was a night filled with ups and downs and a ninety-four-minute rain delay as it poured at Orioles Park at Camden Yards. Those who predict game scores thought that they might be right on when the Yankees took a huge lead in the first inning.  Those predictions ranged from 6-1 to 9-2.  The final score was the Yankees 8 and the Baltimore Orioles 6. At the top of the 1st inning with a man on base, Oriole pitcher John Means hit Gleyber Torres in the elbow, causing Torres to crouch to the ground in pain. Medical staff checked him out, and he remained in the game until the fourth innings when he was taken for x-rays that turned out negative.  It...
