MIAMI   [url=http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-mickey-mantle-jersey]Mickey Mantle Jersey[/url] , 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 doesnt lack for confidence. The Dominican native with the golden right arm his fastball has reached 102 mph wasnt too happy earlier this summer when he was still in New Orleans, which is Miamis 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 shouldve 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, 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 [url=http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-yogi-berra-jersey]http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-yogi-berra-jersey[/url] , 4.66 ERA), a 25-year-old native of Canada.Pivetta took the road less traveled to the majors fr om 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, 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 [url=http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-roger-maris-jersey]Roger Maris Jersey[/url] , 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 Wednesdays 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 thats all you have, New Orleans manager Arnie Beyeler said. He needs to continue to develop his fastball command. LOS ANGELES (AP) Manny Machado caught his wifes first pitch before the game and hit a three-run homer to notch the first 100 RBI season of his career.It cant get any better than this, Machado said.Except maybe reaching the World Series and winning.The Dodgers 7-2 victory over the San Diego Padres kept their NL West lead at 1 games over Colorado, which won 5-1 at Arizona.Machado had been eager for a memorable moment since being traded to the Dodgers on July 18 from Baltimore.He borrowed a page from a popular script: homering on his bobblehead night.We fed off that, manager Dave Roberts said. Hes trying like heck and he wants that signature moment. Hopefully tonight alleviated some of the pressure for him. Machados homer was one of three by the Dodgers in the game, giving them a National League-leading 222 on the season and breaking the club record of 221 set last year.We have great hitters here, Machado said. Were all confident. We know the team we have. Rich Hill became the Dodgers first 10-game winner [url=http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-phil-rizzuto-jersey]Phil Rizzuto Jersey[/url] , allowing one run and four hits in seven innings. The left-hander struck out seven and walked none.Hill (10-5) has been stellar since the All-Star break with an 8-1 record. In his 12 second-half starts, the Dodgers are 9-3.Im just excited we won and were keeping pace here, Hill said.Machado caught a nice toss from his wife Yainee Alonso, whose brother is Indians first baseman Yonder Alonso.I think shes got the best (arm) in the family, Machado said.Then reminiscent of Manny Ramirez (2009) and Yasiel Puig (2015) homering on their bobblehead nights, Machado launched his 36th long ball of the season to right-center on the first pitch from rookie Jacob Nix (2-4). Machado had 24 homers with Baltimore before being traded on July 18.Fans responded with chants of Manny! Manny!The Dodgers batted around in the third, when Justin Turner doubled down the left-field line to drive in a pair of runs. Machados shot scored Turner and Max Muncy, who was hit by Nix, giving the Dodgers a 6-0 lead. Yasmani Grandal hit his 24th homer off Brad Wieck in the sixth and Joc Pederson went deep in the first for his seventh leadoff homer of the season.San Diegos first run came on Hunter Renfroes 25th homer with two outs in the sixth, leaving him one shy of tying his career high set last year.The Dodgers bullpen struggled in the ninth.After getting a quick out, Yimi Garcia allowed a double to Austin Hedges. Tony Cingrani came on and hit Eric Hosmer before giving up a single to Wil Myers that loaded the bases. Manuel Margot followed with an RBI single.That forced Roberts to bring in closer Kenley Jansen, who struck out the final two batters to earn his 37th save.I didnt expect to use him, Roberts said.Nix gave up a career-high-tying six runs and six hits in 2 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked none.Made the mistake to Machado and the mistake to Cody Bellinger [url=http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-brett-gardner-jersey]Brett Gardner Jersey[/url] , and I paid for it, he said.LASORDAS BIRTHDAYHall of Fame manager Tom Lasorda turned 91 on Saturday, and the sellout crowd of 53,536 cheered him when he was shown on the videoboard. Hes in his record 69th season with the Dodgers, the longest tenure anyone has had with the franchise in Brooklyn and Los Angeles. Lasorda led the club to World Series titles in 1981 and 88.FAN ON FIELDA man ran onto the field from the third-base side in the middle of the eighth inning. He reached center field, wh ere he was quickly tackled by about nine security personnel. They removed him through the center field gate.UP NEXTLHP Joey Lucchesi (8-8, 3.74 ERA) goes for the Padres in the series finale. The third straight rookie to start in the series, Lucchesi is 0-2 with a 5.00 ERA in two starts against LA. LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (5-3, 2.18) starts the Dodgers last home game before they end the regular season on the road. Ryu has given up three earned runs in 11 2/3 innings of two starts against the Padres.
