  Currently In First Place in the NL East, the Miami Marlins Should Quarantine Straight Into the Playoffs The Miami Marlins should consider a season-long quarantine right into the postseason.At 2-1, with a .667 winning percentage, the Miami Marlins sit atop the National League East. Based on that small sample size, it is incredibly likely that they make MLB's expanded 16-team playoff.

RED-HOT COLE . Gerrit Cole tries for his 20 th straight regular-season win when he pitches for the Yankees at Tampa Bay. The Marlins have rapidly become the most surprising team in the majors and now try for their seventh St. Louis is next scheduled to play Monday at home against Pittsburgh.

McNeil led off the game with a home run, his eighth, on the first pitch thrown by Alcantara. It was McNeil's second leadoff homer of the season. The Mets were leading 4-2 in the eighth when Rosario hit a fly ball to right-center that was misplayed by the Marlins ' outfielders, dropping in for a single.

HOME AT LAST

Miami finally gets to play its pandemic-delayed opener at Marlins Park, which has a new look for 2020 thanks to cozier dimensions and a switch to artificial turf. Also, there will be a first-place team in the home dugout when the Marlins (8-4) host Atlanta.

The Marlins departed for a season-opening three-game trip more than three weeks ago. Their 23-day road odyssey was necessitated by a coronavirus outbreak that infected at least 18 players during the opening weekend in Philadelphia. Miami’s season was suspended for a week and the schedule scrambled, including the postponement of eight games at Marlins Park.

Cole ready to make Yankees home debut against Phillies

  Cole ready to make Yankees home debut against Phillies Gerrit Cole probably did not anticipate his home debut as a New York Yankee taking place inside an empty stadium during the summer, and against an opponent a week after originally being on the schedule. One thing Cole probably envisioned, however, was Aaron Judge wielding a hot bat.Cole will be on the mound Monday night against the Philadelphia Phillies and Judge will attempt to homer in a career-high sixth straight game when the teams begin their rescheduled home-and-home series. The teams are scheduled to play four straight games with two games apiece in New York and Philadelphia.

In making his team- leading 15th start and second straight against the Marlins , Mikolas went six innings. He scattered six hits and struck out four. Miami has lost nine of its last 11 games. Carpenter, who went 3-for-4, hit his 10th home run with one out in the third for a 1-0 St. Louis lead .

Harrison, Marlins seek 7 th straight victory. Francisco Cervelli crushes a three-run home run down the right-field line, giving the Marlins a 3-0 lead in the top of the 2nd inning.

“You feel like you’ve got a quick trip,” manager Don Mattingly said. “You pack hardly nothing, and the next thing you know, a month later, you’ve got to pay rent again.”

World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg is scheduled to make his second start of the season for the Washington Nationals at Baltimore, still dealing with a nerve issue in his pitching hand. “We’ve talked to him. He’s adamant about trying to pitch through this right now. But we’re going to keep a very close eye on him,” manager Dave Martinez said. “We’ll see how far he can get.” Strasburg said he felt the problem in his right hand while allowing five runs in the fifth inning of his season debut last Sunday.

The star right-hander was ejected from the stands Thursday during Washington’s loss to the New York Mets for arguing balls and strikes in the third inning. Strasburg, sitting in Section 121 at Citi Field in this season of social distancing, was apparently unhappy with plate umpire Carlos Torres' strike zone. The usually stoic Strasburg doffed his cap as he walked up the staircase on his way out and appeared to be grinning underneath his blue mask.

The setup Friday in Baltimore will be unusual. First, the clubs will complete a game suspended because the grounds crew couldn’t unfurl the tarp properly when it rained in the top of the sixth inning Sunday with the Orioles leading 5-2 at Washington — so the Nationals will be the “home” team for the resumption Friday — and then they’ll play the day’s originally scheduled game.

TWENTY SOMETHING

Yankees newcomer Gerrit Cole (3-0, 3.22 ERA) gets his first taste of an old rivalry and again goes for his 20th consecutive regular-season victory when New York hosts Boston in the opener of a four-game series. Cole, who signed a $324 million, nine-year contract in the offseason, is trying to tie Roger Clemens, Jake Arrieta and Rube Marquard for the third-longest streak ever. Hall of Famer Carl Hubbell leads the list with 24 wins in a row, followed by Roy Face with 22. Cole’s only loss since May 2019 came in Game 1 of the World Series last October, pitching for Houston against Washington.

  LEADING OFF: Hitters slumping, cutdown day, Scherzer's exit A look at what's happening around the majors today: OFF BASE Star hitters Christian Yelich, Gary Sanchez, Hunter Pence and others are slumping badly in a season where hitters across the majors are struggling to find base hits. The league-wide batting average entering Wednesday’s games was .232, down from .252 last year. It’s the lowest mark ever, below the .237 average posted in 1968, despite the addition of the designated hitter to the NL. CUTDOWN DAYCuts are coming for players around the majors as teams trim their active rosters from 30 players to 28, per plans agreed to by MLB and the union before the start of this virus-shortened 60-game season.

NOT JUST YET

St. Louis’ series opener in Chicago against the White Sox was postponed to Saturday, giving the Cardinals an extra day to recover from a COVID-19 outbreak.

The Cardinals, who haven’t played since July 29, were finally set to resume their season Friday. But the first game of the series was pushed back to a straight doubleheader Saturday afternoon, the beginning of an extended stay in the Windy City for the Cards.

There was no word from Major League Baseball on the postponement, but John Mozeliak, the president of baseball operations for the Cardinals, confirmed the move in a conference call with reporters. Mozeliak also said the team will play doubleheaders Monday and Wednesday against the Cubs at Wrigley Field after the NL Central rivals had a series postponed last weekend.

The Cardinals’ season has been derailed by the coronavirus. Star catcher Yadier Molina and infielder Paul DeJong are among the players who tested positive. The defending NL Central champions have played just five games, winning two.

MILE-HIGH REMEDY?

The Texas Rangers have gone four games without a home run for the first time in nearly five years. Maybe a mile-high trip will end that drought, with the Rangers opening their first series in Colorado since 2016. Texas has had 157 plate appearances — all in its spacious new ballpark with a retractable roof — since Joey Gallo’s two-run homer in the sixth inning Saturday night against the Angels in a 2-0 home victory. Arizona is the only major league team this season with a five-game homerless streak (July 25-29).
