Tampa Bay’s shutout streak ended at 27 innings
Tuesday night John Kruk Jersey , tying the club record.But the Rays‘ pitching staff continued its roll behind ace Blake Snell to win their second game over the Kansas City Royals at Tropicana Field.Now, Tampa Bay sends Ryne Stanek to the mound against Kansas City’s Jakob Kunis in the third game of the series Wednesday night.Article continues below ...Snell, winning his 15th game of the season to further become part of the Cy Young talk, gave up a run in the fifth inning, but struck out 11 through six as he lowered his ERA to 2.07.The Rays won their third straight to go to four games over .500, matching their high-water mark for the season.“It’s amazing,” Willie Adames, who had three hits, including a home run, Tuesday, said of Snell (15-5). “You’ve been watching Snell the whole year — he’s been dealing this year. He’s been having a great year — he has great talent.”And the Rays have allowed one run during the mini winning streak.Told the 27 innings tied the club mark set in 2013, manager Kevin Cash said, “It’s awesome. And we’re doing it with a bunch of young pitchers. I have no idea when (it was done last) but the guys that we’re asking to do it it’s been a huge team effort, pen effort http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authen...ski-jersey , starter effort, opener effort. It’s pretty rewarding to hear that.”Reminded the Rays went to the playoffs in 2013, Cash said, “We better get going.”The Royals have scored one run in 25 innings since a six-run second inning at Chicago on Sunday.“We struck out 16 times tonight,” said K.C. manager Ned Yost. “It’s not acceptable. Just way, way too many punchouts.”Asked about Snell, he said, “He’s tough. He’s an All-Star — not an All-Star by accident.”Kunis is 6-11 with a 4.76 ERA. He has thrown three straight no-decisions — all Royals losses — but has allowed four earned runs in 16 1/3 innings in the three starts.He is 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA in two games (one start) against the Rays. Last year, he struck out 10 in 6 2/3 innings in defeating Tampa Bay.The current Rays are just 1-for-6 lifetime against Kunis.The Rays lost Tommy Pham to a dislocated right ring finger in Tuesday’s game. They announced x-rays were negative and said he is day-to-day.For K.C., Jorge Bonifacio was a late scratch with lower back stiffness. Rookie Ryan O’Hearn, a left-handed hitter, went into the lineup against tough lefty Snell and hit his first home run off a left-hander. That ended the Royals’ scoreless streak at 20 straight innings.Yost didn’t have much of an update on Bonifacio.Before the game, Yost said signs are pointing toward Danny Duffy coming off the 10-day disabled list to start the series finale Thursday night. Duffy threw a bullpen session Monday and reported no after-affects Tuesday.“I’m not going to put it in cement yet,” Yost said. “We’ve still got a couple of days to go Mike Schmidt Jersey , but it looks that way.”Said Duffy, out with left shoulder impingement that required an anti-inflammatory injection: “It went well. (My shoulder) loosened up as it went. This time of year, everyone has something going on (injury-wise), so I’ll give it a shot.“I feel like I’m at the point where I’m good. I feel like if whatever percentage I have left in the tank is good enough to dominate; I’ll give it a go.” MIAMI — On Wednesday night, Miami Marlins rookie right-hander Sandy Alcantara will get another chance.Alcantara (1-0, 1.80 ERA), set to face the visiting Philadelphia Phillies in the rubber game of a three-contest series, will be making just his second major league start.Still, he doesn’t lack for confidence. The Dominican native with the golden right arm — his fastball has reached 102 mph — wasn’t too happy earlier this summer when he was still in New Orleans, which is Miami’s Triple-A affiliate.Article continues below ...“I have to wait for (the Marlins’) decision,” Alcantara said in Spanish at that time. “But I feel I should’ve been in the majors a long time ago. Sometimes it makes me mad. I attack hitters so that they know I should not be in the minors.”Alcantara, 22, finally made his first major league start on June 29, beating the New York Mets while allowing three hits Mitch Williams Jersey , five walks and one run in five innings.Immediately following that game, however, Alcantara landed on the disabled list due an infection in the armpit area.Now Alcantara will be matched up against Phillies right-hander Nick Pivetta (7-10, 4.66 ERA), a 25-year-old native of Canada.Pivetta took the road less traveled to the majors — from Canada to New Mexico Junior College and then the Washington Nationals, who drafted him in the first round in 2013.Last year, Pivetta made his major league debut, flashing a high-powered fastball that averages 94.8 mph.Pivetta has a 4.28 ERA in 16 home appearances this year, including 15 starts. On the road, Pivetta has been worse — a 5.19 ERA in 12 starts.In six career starts against the Marlins, Pivetta is 2-1 with a 5.83 ERA.The Phillies are counting on Pivetta because they gained a game on the first-place Atlanta Braves on Tuesday. The Phillies are now three games behind Atlanta in the National League East.“We have a ton of confidence,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told philly.com.The Phillies certainly played with confidence on Tuesday, getting three RBIs each from Cesar Hernandez and Asdrubal Cabrera in a 9-4 win over the Marlins.Carlos Santana also homered and had two RBIs for the Phillies, and Jake Arrieta struck out a season-best 11 batters to earn his 10th win of the season.Cabrera http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authen...ash-jersey , acquired from the New York Mets on July 27, hit a two-run double and a solo homer. He has 23 homers this year — seven of them against Miami and five of those at Marlins Park. In fact, Cabrera has a home run in four straight games against the Marlins.Hernandez, who went 2-for-3 with two walks, a single and the triple, snapped out of a slump — he had gone 1-for-18 in his past five games.As for a hot Marlins hitter heading into Wednesday’s game, watch out for catcher J.T. Realmuto, who homered twice on Tuesday. He has 20 homers this season as a first-time All-Star.Realmuto will also be in charge of guiding Alcantara from his crouch behind home plate.“(Alcantara) throws hard, but they will hit you as you go up levels if that’s all you have,” New Orleans manager Arnie Beyeler said. “He needs to continue to develop his fastball command.”
