are calling me the Saturday starter

ST. PETERSBURG Ender Inciarte Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Daniel Palka did a lot more than avoid a fifth consecutive strikeout.Palka hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the ninth inning and the Chicago White Sox completed their first three-game sweep in a year by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 8-7 on Sunday.It was Chicago’s first three-game sweep since Aug. 8-10, 2017 against Houston. The White Sox’s last three-game road sweep occurred April 25-27, 2016 at Toronto.Chicago also has a season-high four-game winning streak.“I think it just builds confidence for these guys,” Chicago manager Rick Renteria said. They’re starting to see that they can pick each other up.”Palka had struck out in each of his first four at-bats before connecting on his 17th homer off Diego Castillo (2-2) with two outs.“I was jokingly saying earlier that I was just trying to make contact, but that’s really what I was doing,” Palka said. “I just had to forget the first eight-ninths of the game and move on from there.”It was the sixth time since 1908 that a White Sox player has homered and struck out at least four times in a game, according to Baseball Reference. Alex Avila last did it on Sept. 5, 2016 against Detroit.Hector Santiago (4-3) went the final 1 1/3 innings for the win.C.J Cron had a leadoff double in the ninth off Santiago and scored one out later on Kevin Kiermaier’s two-base hit. After Brandon Lowe walked, Jesus Sucre hit into a double play.Tampa Bay tops the majors in one-run losses (26) and one-run games (46).“They did things to take advantage of opportunities and ultimately found ways to win all three games,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.Avisail Garcia had a solo homer in a two-run fifth and made it 6-4 on another solo shot during the seventh for the White Sox. It was his eighth career multi-homer game.Ji-Man Choi tied it at 6-all with a two-run single in the seventh, an inning that saw the White Sox use four relievers.Chicago starter James Shields left with a two-run lead but was denied his first road win since opening day. The one-time Tampa Bay ace threw a season-high 114 pitches, allowing four runs http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authent … rez-jersey , five hits and four walks over six innings.“I really didn’t have anything, to be honest with you,” Shields said. “I had no feel for the baseball.”The Rays honored their 2008 AL championship team, which Shields was on, this weekend.“This whole weekend was very special for me personally, to come and see the boys from 2008 and celebrate,” Shields said.Tim Anderson had two RBI singles for the White Sox.Joey Wendle had three hits, including a first-inning RBI single and a solo homer in the fifth that pulled the Rays within 5-4.TRAINER’S ROOMWHITE SOX: CF Leury Garcia left with left hamstring soreness and will evaluated Monday.Rays: INF Daniel Robertson saw a hand specialist and will have what is expected to be season-ending surgery this week on his sprained left thumb. He was hurt sliding into second on a double Friday night. “It’s disappointing, very disappointing,” Robertson said. . LHP Blake Snell (left shoulder fatigue) reported no issues after making his first start Saturday since the All-Star Game on July 17th. He also downplayed any concern about his lower leg, which was struck by Jose Abreu’s first-inning single, saying it was fine.LINEUP CHANGEMallex Smith replaced struggling Kiermaier as the Rays’ leadoff hitter and went 4 for 5. Smith is hitting .299 with a .369 on-base percentage Ronald Acuna Jr. Jersey , compared to Kiermaier’s .189 average and .269 O-B-P. “KK has been really accountable,” Cash said. “He was actually the one who came up and said ‘I don’t feel like I’m getting it done.'” Kiermaier was dropped to sixth and doubled in four at-bats and walked once.UP NEXTWhite Sox: RHP Dylan Covey (4-7) will face New York Yankees RHP Lance Lynn (7-8) Monday night.Rays: RHP Tyler Glasnow (0-0) will make his second since being acquired from Pittsburgh in the Chris Archer trade against Baltimore Tuesday night. CINCINNATI (AP) — It was a throwback night for Matt Harvey. At least, that’s how it looked to Giants manager Bruce Bochy.Harvey took a no-hit try into the sixth inning, Jose Peraza and Dilson Herrera backed him with home runs and the Cincinnati Reds dominated Madison Bumgarner and San Francisco 7-1 on Saturday night.“He had good stuff,” Bochy said. “He really did throw well. He’s been throwing well, but he reminded me of when he was really throwing well. He was throwing 95. He mixed it up and hit his spots.”The former Mets ace followed up a seven-inning, five-hit, two-run start the previous Saturday against Arizona.“After a successful outing last time, it is big to have another,” Harvey said. “I’m getting there. Health is the biggest thing. It is hard to stay sharp when you’re used to going every sixth day. You feel a little out of whack. The guys are calling me the Saturday starter, like in college.”Scooter Gennett had three hits for the second straight night and scored three runs, Peraza had two hits and scored twice and Brandon Dixon drove in two runs with a bases-loaded double. Cincinnati sent the Giants to their third straight loss after winning three in a row. San Francisco has lost nine of its last 14 games.Harvey (6-7) didn’t give up a hit until there were two outs in the sixth http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authent … omb-jersey , when Joe Panik beat out a grounder that shortstop Peraza backhanded deep in the hole.Harvey threw 6 1/3 shutout innings, allowing four hits and a walk with five strikeouts. He drew a standing ovation as he walked to the dugout, and improved to 6-5 in 17 starts for the Reds since being acquired from the Mets for catcher Devin Mesoraco on May 8.Bumgarner (4-5) turned in the worst of his 14 starts this season, setting season highs by allowing six runs and eight hits in six innings.“I wouldn’t say today was the best that I’ve felt this year, but I felt pretty good,” Bumgarner said. “It’s a funny game. That’s how it works out sometimes. It was weird. I was making my pitches, and they were getting hits.”Peraza led off a three-run fourth with a line shot into the left field seats. Dixon capped the inning with a broken-bat blooper down the right field line.“That wasn’t my favorite part of the game,” Bumgarner said. “That’s the way it goes sometimes. Sometimes, they hit it right at guys.”The Reds added two runs in the fifth on Phillip Ervin’s bases-loaded sacrifice fly. Peraza scored from third and Gennett came around on center fielder Stephen Duggar’s throwing error. Herrera led off the sixth with his third homer of the season.The Giants scored their only run when the Reds couldn’t complete a double play on Evan Longoria’s bases-loaded grounder with one out in the eighth.DROUGHTThe Giants have scored three or fewer runs in 10 of the last 14 games and have hit just two home runs in their last 93 innings.FINALLYHarvey’s win was his first over San Francisco in five career starts. The Giants hit a combined .289 against him in his first four appearances.ALL OR NOTHINGOf Herrera’s six hits this season, three have been home runs.RAINER’S ROOMGiants: RHP Hunter Strickland was activated from the 60-day disabled list. The team saves leader with 13 was out since June 10 with a fractured right hand. INF Pablo Sandoval was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.
