Cal Ripken Jersey
Rich Hill to start season finale against Giants"On Saturday afternoon Chris Davis Jersey , the Dodgers won their game against the Giants and grabbed the last National League playoff spot. Amidst the small celebration of clinching their sixth straight postseason appearance, the Dodgers still had not announced their starting pitcher for Sunday’s season finale as they were waiting for the result from Coors Field.The Nationals ended the Rockies eight-game winning streak and thus, the Dodgers and Rockies were tied for first.But that wasn’t the only news from Denver.After that game was finished, word came out that the Nationals had decided not to start Max Scherzer against the Rockies on Sunday.According to National’s beat writer Chelsea Janes, Scherzer “was surprised the Nationals were considering starting him in the finale, but he agreed. He , Martinez, and general manager Mike Rizzo decided that if the game could eliminate a team from playoff contention, he would pitch it. If the game had playoff implications, he would probably pitch it.”However once both the Dodgers and Rockies clinched their playoff spots and the Cardinals were eliminated, the Nationals decided to sit Scherzer and start Erick Fedde.A few hours later, the Dodgers informed the media that they had decided on Sunday’s starting pitcher.Let’s get this out of the way Cal Ripken Jersey , if the Dodgers win on Sunday, the worst-case scenario is a game on Monday at Dodger Stadium to determine who hosts the National League Divisional Series against the Atlanta Braves.Given that none of the five National League playoff participants know for sure where they will be playing their first official 2018 National League postseason game, Sunday should be filled with plenty of scoreboard watching.Sunday’s Games with National League Playoff Implications12:05 p.m. PDTBig Grinodgers (Rich Hill) at Giants (Andrew Su谩rez)12:05 p.m.:Braves (Kevin Gausman) at Phillies (Ranger Su谩rez)12:10 p.m.:Rockies (Tyler Anderson) vs. Nationals (Erick Fedde)12:10 p.m.:Brewers (Gio Gonzalez) vs. Tigers (Spencer Turnbull)12:15 p.m.:Cubs (Mike Montgomery) vs. Cardinals (Jack Flaherty) GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Sonny Gray has stiffness in his right elbow and was scratched from his scheduled start in the Cincinnati Reds‘ spring training opener against the Cleveland Indians on Saturday.Gray experienced stiffness after a bullpen session on Monday. The Reds said he is not being sent for an MRI.“It is nothing I’m overly worried about. I’ve dealt with this in the past,” Gray said Friday. “I’ll start throwing in a couple of days. I wanted to go out there and throw the first game of spring but it was everyone’s decision not to push it.”Tanner Roark, acquired from Washington , will start in his place.“We’re being very cautious,” rookie manager David Bell said. “Sonny’s made progress the last couple days. We can slot him back into the rotation when he’s ready.”Gray, a 29-year-old right-hander, was acquired from the New York Yankees last month and agreed to a $38 million, four-year contract with the Reds.
