#1 A look at what’s happening around the majors to von zhangzk 07.09.2019 05:29

Odubel Herrera has homered in five straight games Will Grier Jersey , tying a Philadelphia record. Chase Utley (twice in 2008), Bobby Abreu (2005), Mike Schmidt (1979) and Dick Allen (1969) also connected five in row for the Phillies. Ken Griffey, Jr. (1993), Don Mattingly (1987) and Dale Long (1956) share the major league record with homers in eight consecutive games.

Herrera now takes aim against rookie right-hander Erick Fedde (0-2, 5.63 ERA) at Nationals Park.


Clayton Kershaw is set to make an unexpected return from the disabled list, starting for the Dodgers in a marquee matchup against Mets ace Jacob deGrom. Kershaw has been sidelined since June 1 with a lower back strain. The three-time Cy Young Award winner and 2014 NL MVP originally was scheduled to make a rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Oklahoma City at Omaha, but heavy rain in the forecast caused the Dodgers to change plans. There’s rain forecast at Citi Field, too http://www.carolinapanthersteamonline.com/christian-miller-jersey , but LA manager Dave Roberts said the team took that into account and will have rookie lefty Caleb Ferguson (0-1, 7.59 ERA) ready in reserve.


The Mariners have lost a season-worst five in a row, including an 0-4 start to their East Coast trip. After getting swept at Yankee Stadium this week, they blew a 10-5 lead and dropped the series opener at Fenway Park 14-10. Mike Leake (7-4, 4.47 ERA) starts next for Seattle, having lost last weekend to Boston. Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez (9-1, 3.59) has won a career-high six straight starts, including a victory in Seattle last Sunday.


Blue Jays righty Marcus Stroman is set to come off the disabled list and go for his first win of the season. He is 0-5 with a 7.71 ERA in seven starts, and hasn’t pitched since May 8 because of shoulder fatigue. He was 13-9 with a 3.09 ERA last year.


Cleveland is 5-0 against the Tigers at Progressive Field this season Jordan Scarlett Jersey , outscoring them 28-5. Yonder Alonso hit a grand slam in a 10-0 romp Friday night. Detroit lefty Francisco Liriano (3-2, 3.90 ERA) will come off the disabled list to take on Trevor Bauer (6-5, 2.50 ERA). The Indians have won five in a row overall.

Scott Linehan no longer is the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator. A big reason for his departure was the team’s failure to convert in the red zone last season.The Cowboys ranked only 29th in red-zone offense, getting 24 touchdowns and 16 field goals in 50 chances inside the opponent’s 20-yard line.“Yeah, I mean it’s definitely a bigger focus,” quarterback Dak Prescott said. “We changed some things up for one, so we’re not going to sit here and beat our heads against the wall, worried about what we did last year. We know we’re going to be better all the way around. We’re going to have bigger plays from outside the red zone, and we’re going to score within the red zone.”The Cowboys began installing their red-zone plays this week.One of the biggest criticisms of Linehan was his failure to make running back Ezekiel Elliott a bigger part of the red-zone offense. That is expected to change with Kellen Moore now in charge of the play calling.“It’s simply execute Greedy Williams Jersey ,” the new offensive coordinator said. “Naturally, you’re going to look at it, and you’re going to say, ‘Hey, we like certain things we’ve done, but maybe we need to explore some other things.’ I think that’s just the start of it. . . .It gives you an opportunity to maybe put some stuff out there that maybe you haven’t done before. See what you like. See what you don’t like. Tweak things. “We’ve just got to get better down there. We’ve got to execute. We’ve got to run the football and take advantage of 21 [Elliott] and 4 [Prescott].”
