    MIAMI — Tuesday’s game — a 2-1 New York Yankees victory over the Miami Marlins in 12 innings — marked the return of Giancarlo Stanton to Marlins Park.Stanton and the Yankees will try to win their fifth straight game when they conclude the two-game set in Miami on Wednesday.Stanton Gerardo Parra Jersey , who was the 2017 National League MVP while playing for the Marlins, was traded to the Yankees over the winter in a cost-cutting move.Article continues below ...“I don’t think there were any hard feelings,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said when asked about Stanton and the trade Tuesday. “There weren’t any bad parts.”Stanton agreed.“We know what the (financial) situation is over there,” Stanton said. “We understand what they have been through. I’m just happy to be here. I always miss Miami. I miss the city.“It’s cool to be back. It was cool flying in and driving over the bridge. I miss everything about the city.”Miami feels the same about Stanton. The fans — attendance at Marlins Park was much bigger than usual with an announced crowd of 26,275 — gave Stanton a standing ovation when he came to bat in Tuesday’s first inning.Stanton went 2-for-6 with a double and three strikeouts, and the Marlins honored him with a video tribute in the second inning.The Yankees (79-46) are in second place in the American League East and have won four straight games to move within eight games of the first-place Red Sox. They have also won 11 of their past 15 games since being swept in a four-game series at Boston.Miami (50-77) is in last place in the National League East and had its modest two-game win streak snapped Tuesday.On Wednesday, Stanton will face a Marlins pitcher who is not a former teammate. Rookie right-hander Trevor Richards (3-7, 4.28 ERA) has below-average speed on his fastball (90.9 mph).But Richards, armed with an effective changeup, has been better at home (2-3 http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-todd-helton-jersey , 3.27 ERA) than on the road, and that could give him a boost Wednesday.However, after posting a 1-0 record and a 2.30 ERA in five July starts, Richards has lost his way. In three August starts, he is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA.Richards will face veteran right-hander Lance Lynn (8-8, 4.68 ERA), who was acquired by the Yankees from the Minnesota Twins on July 30.In four games with the Yankees — including three starts — Lynn is 1-0 with a 2.61 ERA.Lynn is also 4-1 with a 3.75 ERA in eight career games (six starts) against the Marlins.However, the Yankees will likely be without closer Aroldis Chapman, who was trying for his 32nd save of the season Tuesday when he exited the game in the 12th inning after six pitches because of an apparent arm injury.Tommy Kahnle got the last three outs for his fourth career save and his first since 2016 in his 200th career game.The feel-good story for Miami on Tuesday revolved around rookie left fielder Austin Dean, who jumped on the first pitch of the bottom of the fifth inning for a leadoff homer to left-center.Dean Nolan Arenado Jersey , who crushed an 87-mph splitter, got his first major league hit last week — a home run. This homer was his first base hit at Marlins Park, and perhaps more heroics are in store for him Wednesday. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay reached its high-water mark of 2018 by just putting the ball in play.A throwing error on Kevin Kiermaier’s bases-loaded grounder in the bottom of the ninth inning helped the Rays complete their first season sweep of an American League opponent with a 4-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night.“A win is a win,” Kiermaier said. “We’ll take it any way possible.”Tampa Bay swept the four-game series and finished 7-0 against the lowly Royals this year. The only other season sweep in team history that included multiple series was a four-game wipeout of the Marlins in 2013.Jake Bauers drew a leadoff walk from Brian Flynn (4-4) in the ninth and went to third on C.J. Cron’s single.After Joey Wendle grounded out and Willy Adames was intentionally walked to load the bases, Kiermaier grounded a 3-2 pitch to first baseman Ryan O’Hearn, who made a wild toss to the plate.“We always say, ‘Put the pressure on the defense,'” Kiermaier explained. “Anytime you put the ball in play, you at least give yourself a chance.”Sergio Romo (3-3) worked a perfect ninth and the Rays improved to a season-high six games over .500 (67-61) with their fifth consecutive victory. It is Tampa Bay’s sixth winning streak of at least five games this year.Kansas City Charlie Blackmon Jersey , which has lost five in a row and 17 of 21, fell a franchise-record 52 games under .500 at 38-90 and was eliminated from the playoff race.“We wanted to salvage one at the end of the series,” Flynn said. “You don’t want to be the guy that comes in here and gives that one up.”The Rays tied it at 3 when Matt Duffy scored from second on bad throw to first by second baseman Whit Merrifield on a potential double-play grounder hit by Cron.Tampa Bay appeared to go up 4-3 later in the seventh on Kiermaier’s grounder, but the run was taken away after a replay review determined Adames made an illegal slide at second base. The call was changed to an inning-ending double play.“There were a lot of odd things that took place in that game,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.Alex Gordon had an RBI single in a two-run fifth against Tampa Bay starter Tyler Glasnow that put the Royals ahead 3-2.Adames hit a run-scoring infield single against Danny Duffy during a two-run third.Duffy, making his first start in 12 days due to a left shoulder injury, allowed two runs and six hits over five innings.“The last start I felt really bad,” Duffy said. “This start I felt really good.”Lucas Duda drove in a run with a first-inning single and had a potential two-run extra-base hit taken away with two outs in the third on a leaping catch by Rays right fielder Carlos Gomez.Glasnow allowed three runs, five hits and three walks in five innings. He struck out eight.TRAINER’S ROOMRoyals: INF Adalberto Mondesi (hamstring) was out of the lineup. … RHP Ian Kennedy (left oblique) will throw a simulated game Friday. … OF Jorge Bonifacio (lower back stiffness) missed his third straight game.Rays: OF Tommy Pham (dislocated right ring finger) felt soreness hitting off a tee but could play this weekend.ROAD TRIPFormer Royals George Brett, Mike Sweeney http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-jake-mcgee-jersey , Bret Saberhagan and Reggie Sanders will visit U.S. troops at four locations in the Middle East next month as part of a USO trip.
