Diamondbacks hit 5 HRs in a 18-7 rout of Nats, Strasburg

Diamondbacks hit 5 HRs in a 18-7 rout of Nats, Strasburg PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona seems to have Stephen Strasburg's number this season. The Diamondbacks hit three of their five home runs off Strasburg in an 18-7 victory over the Washington Nationals on Saturday night while knocking him around for the second time this season. They have seven homers and 15 runs against him in two starts. "Sometimes things line up well," Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. "Sometimes thing work in this game in a very mysterious way. It was a tremendous challenge for us, and they were ready to go. BOX SCORE: DIAMONDBACKS 18, NATIONALS 7 "We had a really good offensive approach against a really good pitcher.

The Washington Nationals tied a franchise record with eight home runs , including two apiece by Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman, and Max Scherzer pitched six innings of three-hit ball in a 15-2 rout of the fading Milwaukee Brewers . Post to Facebook.

WASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals staged their own version of the Home Run Derby, with Michael Blazek serving as the unwilling batting practice pitcher. Washington tied a franchise record with eight homers and matched two major league marks during a prolific third inning that highlighted

WASHINGTON – If the Milwaukee Brewers thought the Washington Nationals would come out dispirited and lifeless after losing an agonizing 14-inning marathon the previous evening, they were wrong.

Very wrong.

BOX SCORE: NATIONALS 16, BREWERS 8

The Nationals came out slugging Sunday and never stopped, knocking eight balls out of the park in a 16-8 pounding of the Brewers at Nationals Park. So much for any momentum the visitors had mustered after pulling out an uplifting 15-14 victory on Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Pitching takes a holiday as Angels rout Porcello, Red Sox

Pitching takes a holiday as Angels rout Porcello, Red Sox Los Angeles had the lead just four batters into the game, and the visitors scored seven to put things away in the seventh.

The Nationals go off for eight homers, including four straight in a five-homer 3rd and a pair each by Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman. The American League consists of the following teams : Baltimore Orioles; Boston Red Sox; Chicago White Sox; Cleveland Indians; Detroit Tigers; Houston

Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun celebrates his home run in the fifth inning. The Nationals increased their lead to 11- 8 with yet another home run , a two- run shot to center in the seventh by Mark Loretta holds the franchise mark with 59 consecutive errorless games at short during a single season

Brewers starter Chase Anderson was battered early and often, allowing nine hits, including three home runs, and 10 runs in only 2⅓ innings. Washington continued its long-ball assault off Aaron Wilkerson, who was called up overnight from Class AAA San Antonio and had little sleep before surrendering four home runs.

Despite that amazing 5-hour, 40-minute triumph in the second game, the Brewers dropped two of three to the Nationals, who lead the wild card race. Not exactly the way they hoped to open a six-game trip that now moves on to St. Louis.

Unlike the previous evening, when the teams swapped leads in a see-saw slugfest, the Nationals removed all doubt in this one by building a 13-0 lead after only three innings. By that point, they already had slugged five home runs.

Bryce Harper homers twice, Phillies break out for 11 runs to rout Cubs in Charlie Manuel’s first game as hitting coach

Bryce Harper homers twice, Phillies break out for 11 runs to rout Cubs in Charlie Manuel’s first game as hitting coach J.T. Realmuto stepped on home plate, traded celebratory jabs to the gut with Rhys Hoskins and high-fived his other waiting teammates. And all around them, Citizens Bank Park rocked with a two-syllable chant that surely went straight through your television set and into your living room. "Char-lie! Char-lie!" The place hadn't been so loud since, well, since when? At least since the season's opening weekend when the Phillies, so full of hope and promise, swept three games from the Atlanta Braves. No, this felt even louder. This felt as loud as the days when Charlie Manuel was here in uniform and Cole Hamels stood atop the mound.

Daily Recap: Abreu hit his first two home runs among six for the White Sox in rout over the Rockies. The American League consists of the following teams : Baltimore Orioles; Boston Red Sox; Chicago White Sox; Cleveland Indians; Detroit Tigers; Houston Astros; Kansas City Royals; Los Angeles

The Nationals tied a major league record with five home runs in an inning, including four consecutive in third inning. It marked the first time in the history of the franchise that four consecutive batters homered and eighth time in MLB history a team hit four straight homers in a game, most recently

After using 10 pitchers in the 14-inning game, the Brewers were hoping Anderson would continue the surge he had been on since the all-star break. He had posted a 2.84 ERA over seven starts in the second half, including a 1.86 ERA in three August outings.

Some seemingly catchable balls eluded the Brewers’ sluggish defense but Anderson just couldn’t keep the ball in the park. Matt Adams blasted a three-run homer off the facing of the second deck in right-center with two down in the first inning and Victor Robles followed with a shot to center to make it 4-0.

BOX SCORE: Nationals 16, Brewers 8

It only got uglier from there. Adam Eaton tripled in two runs in the second and Anderson allowed four more runs in the third, including a three-run homer by Brian Dozier. Wilkerson took over that inning and was tagged for back-to-back homers by Anthony Rendon (two-run shot) and Juan Soto.

Mike Moustakas provided two offensive highlights for the Brewers with a three-run homer off Erick Fedde in the fifth and two-run homer in the ninth off Kyle McGowin. But Eaton homered off Wilkerson in the bottom of the fifth and Soto got him again to make it 15-4.

Thames' HR in 14th, Yelich's 2 help Brewers beat Nats 15-14

Thames' HR in 14th, Yelich's 2 help Brewers beat Nats 15-14 WASHINGTON (AP) — After witnessing two dozen runs and multiple comebacks over nine innings, Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell knew he had never seen something quite like the Brewers' game against the Washington Nationals. He couldn't have guessed there would be another five innings of back-and-forth wackiness between the two National League playoff contenders. Eric Thames hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the 14th inning, and Milwaukee finally held on for a wild 15-14 victory Saturday night.

Washington hit eight home runs in the game, two shy of the major-league record and one short of the National League mark . In the process, they went from having a cushy lead in the National League Central over the Chicago Cubs to second place before those teams meet this weekend at Miller Park.

The National League, originally founded in 1876, consists of the following teams : Arizona Diamondbacks; Atlanta Braves; Chicago Cubs; Cincinnati Reds; Colorado Rockies; Los Angeles Dodgers; Miami Marlins; Milwaukee Brewers ; New York Mets; Philadelphia Phillies; Pittsburgh Pirates

With his worst performance in the majors, and one of the worst statistically in Brewers history, Anderson saw his ERA for the season balloon from 3.78 to 4.54. And the consecutive pummelings by Washington’s offense did nothing to improve the overall numbers for Milwaukee’s pitching staff, which has had a rough year.

Utility infielder Hernan Perez pitched the eighth for the Brewers and surrendered the final home run of the day, Dozier's second of the game. The eight homers by Washington matched the franchise record set on July 27, 2017 against the Brewers, the day Perez made his major-league pitching "debut."

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Peralta gets sent out: Needing fresh arms after the Saturday night 14-inning marathon, the Brewers optioned right-handers Freddy Peralta and Ray Black to Class AAA San Antonio and recalled righties Jay Jackson and Aaron Wilkerson, who was scheduled to start Sunday for the Missions. Peralta made it an easy choice to send him down with another dismal outing, retiring none of the four hitters he faced in the sixth inning while allowing four runs. After pitching some significant relief innings coming out of the all-star break, Peralta lost command of his pitches and was terrible in six August appearances, allowing seven hits, 10 walks and 10 runs in four innings (22.50 ERA). “He had two great weeks where I thought his confidence had soared,” manager Craig Counsell said. “Then, we had about four or five appearances where I think he lost some confidence. It started in a couple of appearances with walks, which he had trouble with before. Last night, he got hit. I still believe he’s an important part of this year. We’re going to need him in September. It’s a little step back for him. Hopefully, we can get him some confidence and get him going again.”

9 craziest moments from Brewers' 15-14 win over Nationals

9 craziest moments from Brewers' 15-14 win over Nationals Trying to encapsulate the 15-14 mania of Saturday's 14-inning contest, these are the nine craziest moments from a Brewers victory on Aug. 17.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Nationals tied a franchise record with eight home runs , including two apiece by Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman, while Max Scherzer pitched six innings of three-hit ball in a 15-2 rout of the fading Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.

The Nationals rallied to tie it on Juan Soto’s two- run homer in the third and Adam Eaton’s three- run blast in the fourth. Both came off Brewers starter Jordan Lyles, who also departed after four innings. Braun and Trent Grisham homered in consecutive innings off Nationals reliever Matt Grace to make it

Almost out of players: As remarkable as the Saturday night marathon was, it would have got infinitely more interesting had it gone to 15 innings. Counsell said he was prepared to use shortstop Orlando Arcia to pitch and figured the Nationals would have gone to a position player as well. “The 15th inning was going to be position players pitching,” he said. Plus, both catchers, the Brewers’ Yasmani Grandal and Washington’s Kurt Suzuki, were beginning to cramp in the heat and humidity, with the backups already out of the game. Counsell kept Grandal out of the lineup Sunday. “He was hurting during the game pretty significantly,” Counsell said. “He lost an excessive amount of weight during the game. He’s available and could catch if he had to, but it’s better that he gets time off. He’s sore today from dehydration.”
