Kansas City has not played in Pittsburgh Antworten

BALTIMORE — The Chicago White Sox will try to stretch their winning streak to four games and finish a weekend sweep of the Baltimore Orioles when the teams meet Sunday at Camden Yards.Chicago has bounced back after dropping seven straight games. The White Sox took the final game of a series with the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday and won the first two games of this series Trevor Rosenthal Jersey , including a 2-0 victory on Saturday night.That win also locked up the season series for the White Sox, who now lead the Orioles 4-2 with just the one game left. The White Sox (59-89) have not beaten the Orioles (42-106) in a season series since 2008.Article continues below ...Chicago has not waved the white flag in the season’s final three weeks despite struggling at times and recently dealing with that long losing streak. They’re still pushing hard in each game.“We came here to play 100 percent,” Avisail Garcia said after his solo homer in the ninth inning gave the White Sox some insurance on Saturday night. “(We) try to do our best and try to win every single game. Just trying to do our job.”Neither team could do much offensively for much of Saturday’s game. The White Sox three times tried to steal, but Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph gunned them down each time — in the third, sixth and eighth innings.Chicago went ahead thanks to a two-out rally in the sixth against Baltimore starter Yefry Ramirez. Yoan Moncada doubled to right with two outs and Yolmer Sanchez came up next and sent a double to left that scored the game’s first run.Ramirez, a rookie, has likely earned another start after a solid 5 2/3-inning outing in which he gave up one run and struck out seven.“He was outstanding,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “That was fun to watch. That was as good as you want to see a young pitcher pitch.”But that one run was all the White Sox needed thanks to seven shutout innings from Reynaldo Lopez. Lucas Giolito (10-10, 5.76 ERA) will start Sunday for Chicago against Baltimore rookie David Hess (3-10, 5.17) in the final game of the season between the teams.Giolito has fared well of late, going 3-1 with a 4.05 ERA in his last five starts. He also has struck out 33 in 33 2/3 innings and held opponents to a .218 average.The right-hander has an 0-1 career record with a 47.25 ERA versus the Orioles thanks to one bad start the only time he pitched against them. Baltimore touched him up for seven runs and six hits in 1 1/3 innings in a May 24 loss.For Hess, who has pitched well at times, especially lately, this will be his first appearance against the White Sox.Matt Davidson returned to the Chicago lineup Saturday after sitting out the previous four games (sore left calf). Manager Rick Renteria said he wanted to get Davidson’s big bat back into the lineup — he has hit 20 homers this season — and put him in as the designated hitter.Renteria said Davidson felt good after the game and will return Sunday in the series finale but at first base. Other than setting the stage for 2019, the Pittsburgh Pirates might be the only team with something to play for in a series with the Kansas City Royals that is scheduled to begin Monday at PNC Park.Not that the Pirates’ chance to end above .500 comes with great rewards compared with a strong finish.“We want to play good baseball to the end,” Pittsburgh outfielder Corey Dickerson told AT&T Sportsnet, adding that the team wants to “have good vibes going into the offseason.”Article continues below ...The Royals will be starting their final road trip and the Pirates are opening their final homestand — although the weather forecast is not in their favor for Monday based on the fallout from the storm named Florence.Pittsburgh (74-74) reached .500 with a 3-2 win Sunday at Milwaukee. The Pirates have won two in a row, three of four and eight in 11.“To be able to get a series win against a division rival this late in the year, it’s good for us,” Pirates winning pitcher Trevor Williams said Sunday. “It’s good for us to carry this momentum into our final homestand.”Kansas City (52-97) would have to be nearly flawless down the stretch to avoid 100 losses for the fifth time in team history and first time since 2006, The Royals had won three in a row and five of six and were 14-6 since Aug. 24 before falling 9-6 on Sunday to Minnesota.Pittsburgh is 12-5 in interleague play http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-jedd-gyorko-jersey , second best in the major leagues.Kansas City has not played in Pittsburgh since 2012.In the series opener, Kansas City right-hander Brad Keller (8-6, 3.04 ERA) is scheduled to face Pirates right-hander Joe Musgrove (6-9, 3.87 ERA).Keller has been a bright spot for the Royals. He leads qualifying American League rookies in ERA and his name has circulated in Rookie of the Year discussions.“I don’t really look at that,” Keller said of the award, according to MLB.com. “It’s cool to be in the talks. But the team winning is what matters. It’s cool, but it doesn’t matter much.”He joined the Royals’ rotation on May 30 and is 7-5 with a 3.26 ERA since.On Tuesday, Keller gave up a run and four hits, with six strikeouts and two walks, in seven innings of a 6-3 win over the Chicago White Sox. It was his sixth straight start giving up two runs or fewer.The run he allowed was in the third, and he followed that by retiring 13 of the last 14 batters he faced, the exception being a walk in the sixth.“I felt like I didn’t have my best stuff, but I settled down and gave the team a chance to get the lead and then go deep into the game,” said Keller, who will face Pittsburgh for the first time.Musgrove, who has never faced Kansas City, has a 3.65 ERA in nine starts and 56 1/3 innings since the All-Star break, and has lasted at least seven innings in half of his past 10 starts.On Tuesday, he struck out eight but gave up four runs in six innings of an 11-5 loss at St. Louis.
