I think it is going to depend on some of the tests Antworten

SEATTLE (AP) — Mariners teammates stood and applauded and “God Bless America” played on speakers when Felix Hernandez entered Seattle’s clubhouse after becoming a U.S. citizen.A native of Venezuela Kyle Hendricks Jersey , the 32-year-old pitcher passed his citizenship interview Monday and was among 74 people from 36 countries who became naturalized U.S. citizens during a ceremony in downtown Seattle.“This country has given me everything,” Hernandez said. “It’s a dream come true. It means a lot. We’ve been here a long time. I wanted to do it.”Strife in Venezuela is among the reasons Hernandez desired U.S. citizenship. He wants to bring his parents to the U.S. more easily.“The situation in Venezuela is real bad now,” Hernandez said. “It’s tough. There are people who can’t get any food. It’s crazy.”His wife, Sandra, became a U.S. citizen a month ago, but Hernandez didn’t pass his test that day. Hernandez said she gave him a hard time about it.“I didn’t study,” he said. “I think I only got one question right.”Hernandez said he had no problems in his second attempt.“It’s 100 questions, but they ask you 10 and you have to pass six,” Hernandez said. “I was prepared for this one.”The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner, nicknamed King Felix, is in his 14th season with the Mariners. A group of fans known as The King’s Court have sat in the left-field corner for years counting and yelling during each of his strikeouts. Hernandez is a six-time All-Star who became the team’s career strikeouts leader in 2016.He is 168-127, including 8-13 this year. CLEVELAND (AP) — The Boston Red Sox went 86 years between World Series titles, and are now on the cusp of eclipsing an even older milestone.Sam Travis and Tzu-Wei Lin hit their first major league home runs and the Red Sox tied a team record more than a century old with their 105th win, beating the Indians 7-5 Friday night.The AL East champion Red Sox (105-49), playing without several of their regulars, matched the club mark set in 1912.“It was great, to have all the guys even the ones that didn’t play at the top step, it was like a regular game ,” Boston manager Alex Cora said. “It was a fun game overall, good energy. It was a long night, we got here late and for them to come here and play was fun.”Boston’s magic number to have home-field advantage throughout the postseason was also reduced to one.Trevor Bauer took a step toward being in Cleveland’s postseason rotation, pitching 1 1/3 scoreless innings in his first appearance since breaking his right leg on Aug. 11. He was 12-6 with a 2.22 ERA when was struck on the lower leg by a line drive hit by Jose Abreu of the Chicago White Sox.“It’s been a frustrating five and a half weeks for me not being able to be out there,” Bauer said. “It’s definitely nice to get back in a game situation, especially jumping back in against a team like the Red Sox. They’ve been the best team in baseball this year.”Boston ace Chris Sale, being eased back into the rotation after recent shoulder trouble, struck out seven in 3 1/3 innings. He allowed two runs in his third start back from the disabled list.“That’s a good offensive team so that’s a good test,” Cora said. “He’s feeling fine so we will see how he reacts feeling the next few days.”Cora said Sale will start against Baltimore on Wednesday.Josh Donaldson homered off Sale in the fourth, ending the lefty’s 35-inning consecutive scoreless streak. It was the first homer off Sale in 75 innings.Donaldson was acquired from Toronto on Aug. 31 after missing three months with a calf injury. His homer on a 1-2 pitch landed in the left field bleachers and was his second with the Indians and seventh of the season.The Red Sox used nine pitchers against the AL Central champion Indians. Matt Barnes (6-3) pitched a scoreless sixth and Craig Kimbrel worked the ninth for his 42nd save.Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, Andrew Benintendi and Jackie Bradley Jr. were out of Boston’s lineup. Rafael Devers homered and Travis, who had three RBIs, for the Red Sox, who used a four-run seventh to erase a 4-2 deficit.Shane Bieber (10-5) allowed six runs in 4 2/3 innings.Bauer allowed two hits, walked one and struck out J.D. Martinez, the major league RBIs leader. He threw 34 pitches — 17 strikes — and was pulled after allowing one-out singles to Steve Pearce and Brock Holt in the second.Bauer is scheduled to start Tuesday against the White Sox and will pitch in Kansas City next weekend.“The health, the feeling in the ankle Ian Happ Jersey , has been better,” Bauer said. “So everything’s trending in a very positive direction.”BIG MOMENTLeft-hander Robby Scott retired Michael Brantley on a foul out to left with the bases loaded to end the eighth. Cora decided to intentionally walk Francisco Lindor to set up the situation.“We don’t walk too many people, but I’m not going to let him (Lindor) beat me there,” Cora said. “I’d rather walk him and take a chance with Brantley with that matchup.”IMPROVED SWINGDonaldson was the DH on Friday and will play third base Saturday and Sunday. He’s batting .217 (5 for 23) with Cleveland, but is feeling comfortable at the plate.“I haven’t had much of the results, but I’ve hit some balls hard,” Donaldson said. “As long my approach and how I’m seeing the ball, my pitch recognition, is up to par, and I’m hitting the ball solid, there’s not much more I can ask for.”Donaldson says Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald put him in touch with a doctor who specializes in soft tissue injuries during his rehab that helped the recovery process.MAKING PROGRESSDevers hit his 18th home run and has had two hits in each of the last two games.“He’s good,” Cora said. “He’s putting in good swings. You can see there’s a lot of confidence in him.”TRAINER’S ROOMRed Sox: INF Eduardo Nunez (left hamstring) is expected to miss the series. He was injured beating out an infield hit Wednesday.UP NEXTRHP Rick Porcello (17-7, 4.30 ERA), the team leader in wins, starts Saturday for Boston. RHP Mike Clevinger (12-8, 3.06 ERA) starts against the Red Sox for the first time this season.
