|J.T. Realmuto had another big game before another small crowd Jim Plunkett Jersey , which probably didn’t help his cause much in the All-Star voting.The Marlins‘ catcher homered in the fifth and singled to spark a game-winning rally as the Marlins beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 in 10 innings Monday.
Realmuto has 11 home runs and is batting .311 but ranks a distant fifth in NL All-Star fan voting.
”He’s a great player,” manager Don Mattingly said before the game. ”People just don’t know it yet.”
There weren’t many at Marlins Park to spread the word. Attendance was 6,004.
Brian Anderson walked against Ryne Stanek (1-2) to start the 10th and took third on Realmuto’s single. Yadiel Rivera followed with an RBI infield single.
Realmuto, hoping for his first All-Star appearance, said he has no hard feelings regarding the voting.
”We don’t have as many fans as other teams have,” he said. ”That’s how the fan vote goes. All I can do is go out there and play and let my numbers do the talking for me.”
The Rays lost for only the second time in 10 games, and allowed more than two runs for the first time in seven games, ending a franchise-record streak. Tampa Bay has lost 21 one-run games, most in the majors.
Realmuto’s solo homer put Miami ahead 2-1. The Rays’ C.J. Cron tied the game in the ninth with a two-out RBI double against closer Kyle Barraclough, who hadn’t given up a run since May 8 .
Miami had runners at the corners in the 10th with none out when Rivera pulled a one-hopper up the line . Third baseman Matt Duffy backhanded the ball and double-clutched in foul territory before making a wild throw home, with the play ruled a hit.
”I tried to make a desperation play,” Duffy said. ”I didn’t get a grip and tried to rush the transfer.”
Rivera Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , a reserve batting .198, entered the game in the ninth as a defensive replacement and came through with his second walk-off hit this season.
”We go home happy,” he said. ”That’s the best part.”
Miami second baseman Starlin Castro tied a career high with four hits but also committed an error that led to an unearned run. Miguel Rojas had three hits, including a two-out RBI double in the second.
The Marlins’ Wei-Yin Chen allowed one run in six innings and it was unearned, lowering his ERA to 5.55.
”Today was a tough one,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. ”We didn’t have our best approach against Chen for whatever reason, but you look past that and figure that we tied the game off a really good pitcher in Barraclough.”
Tampa Bay’s Nathan Eovaldi gave up two runs in six innings. Drew Rucinski (3-1) pitched a perfect 10th for Miami.
On a clear, 86-degree night, the retractable roof was open for the 17th time this year, extending the franchise record. Marlins owner Derek Jeter watched from the second row and had plenty of elbow room.
BREAKTHROUGH AGAINST BARRACLOUGH
The Rays trailed 2-1 to start the ninth but rallied against Barraclough, who entered the game with a streak of 20 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings.
Daniel Robertson led off with a single, and following a flyout and a forceout Nick Nelson Jersey , Jake Bauers slid home from first on Cron’s double, barely beating the throw from left field.
Marlins RHP Drew Steckenrider was hit in the lower right leg by Cron’s comebacker in the seventh but stayed in the game and pitched a scoreless inning, and said afterward he was fine.
RHP Trevor Richards (2-5, 5.06) is expected to start Tuesday for the Marlins against LHP Brian Yarbrough (7-4, 3.76).
EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Rashod Hill might not take part in the joint practices with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Minnesota Vikings this week because of a minor injury.
Perhaps, then, he’ll have a brief moment to reflect on his progressing career, considering the presence on the same field of his former and current team. An undrafted practice squad player with the Jaguars just two years ago, Hill has become a key cog on a championship contender as the front runner at right tackle.
Standing 6-foot-6 with a mobile 315-pound frame sure helps, but he never would have made it this far without the willingness to learn and a determination to work that helped give the Vikings confidence Hill can be a quality NFL starter.
“He’s an extremely athletic guy that has been getting better and better,” coach Mike Zimmer said. “Sometimes later in the game his concentration leaves him a little bit Charles Harris Jersey , so that’s where we’ll have to extend him more plays so he gets used to doing those things. He’s done a really nice job. He’s moving well in the running game. When he sets good in the passing game, he’s really hard to get around. He’s done some good things.”
Zimmer made those comments on Monday, before Hill rolled his ankle in practice in a tangle with nose tackle Linval Joseph and was taken away on a cart. Hill returned to the field that afternoon and said afterward the injury was not a concern, but he was held out on Tuesday.
The Jaguars, who signed Hill out of Southern Mississippi in 2016, join the Vikings for practices on Wednesday and Thursday before their exhibition game at U.S. Bank Stadium on Saturday.
“I’m looking forward to seeing them,” Hill said.
The Jaguars were second in the league with 55 sacks last season and second behind the Vikings in both fewest yards and points allowed, so they’ll provide a valuable test for the work-in-progress Vikings offensive line this week. The challenge will not include defensive end Dante Fowler, the third overall pick in the 2015 draft, because he’s being kept home as punishment for fighting with fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue .
“Guys just bought into the program, and I knew they were going to take off,” Hill said Mark Ingram Jersey , assessing the Jaguars defense.
Hill, who was on the practice squad with the Jaguars when the Vikings signed him away a little more than halfway through the 2016 season, started seven games last year including both matchups in the playoffs.
The Vikings are down both starting guards from 2017, with Joe Berger retired and Nick Easton sidelined by a likely season-ending neck injury, so they moved right tackle Mike Remmers to right guard. There’s an obvious need on the interior, but the Vikings surely wouldn’t have switched Remmers if they weren’t sold on Hill’s ability to man that critical position.
Hill already had a setback earlier in training camp with a sudden stomach illness that kept him out of action for a few days, but he said he has gained back all the weight he lost and started practice on Monday at 317 pounds, in the range of his ideal size.
“We’re just happy he’s back and feeling better,” offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said last week. “You’ll see his stamina continue to grow as we go along.”
