Rodón, Verdugo lead Yankees over Marlins for 10-2 start, matching New York’s best

By LARRY FLEISHER NEW YORK — Carlos Rodón allowed two unearned runs in six-plus innings, Alex Verdugo homered and the New York Yankees beat the Miami Marlins 3-2 Tuesday night to match their best 12-game start. New York won its fourth straight and improved to a major league-best 10-2, equaling the starts of the Yankees in 1922, 1949 and 2003 — all pennant-winning teams. The Yankees also started with four straight series wins for the second straight season — the only time they won their first five series was 1926. “You can’t take them off the board and they matter now as much as any time,” New...

Soto was cheered by fans extending into the top of the following inning following his first Yankee Stadium home run in pinstripes. He turned to applaud them. “Amazing how the crowd reacted. It was really cool. They really surprised me with that one,” Soto said. “They’re giving you a lot of love, so you got to give them some love back. Whenever...

Marlins blow early lead vs. Angels; remain winless on the season

MIAMI — Mike Trout hit two solo homers and the Los Angeles Angels rallied from an early four-run deficit and beat the Miami Marlins 7-4 on Monday. Trout’s second shot — a 473-foot blast in the sixth — landed in the walkway high above the wall in left-centerfield. It was the 26th multihomer game of Trout’s and the two blasts put him at 371 in his career, surpassing Gil Hodges for 81st on the all-time list. Trout’s bid for a third homer ended when Miami reliever Tanner Scott (0-2) walked him to load the bases in the eighth. Brandon Drury then reached on a fielder’s choice that scored Anthony Rendon...

Pirates pound Puk in first major league start, get more solid pitching to send Marlins to 0-2

By ALANIS THAMES (AP Sports Writer) MIAMI — Ke’Bryan Hayes had a single and an RBI double, and the Pittsburgh Pirates used another solid pitching outing to beat the Marlins 7-2 on Friday night. Michael A. Taylor and Connor Joe also doubled for the Pirates, who beat the Marlins in front of 13,636 people at loanDepot park — a sharp decline in attendance from the crowd of 32,564 on opening day. Marlins games have typically been among the fewest-attended in MLB for years, but Thursday’s opening-day home crowd was Miami’s largest since 2016. Starter Martín Pérez held the Marlins to one run through...

Jim Leyland, manager who led Marlins to 1997 World Series title, elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame

By RONALD BLUM (AP Baseball Writer) NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Jim Leyland, who led the Florida Marlins to a World Series title in 1997 and won 1,769 regular-season games over 22 seasons as an entertaining and at-times crusty big league manager, was elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame on Sunday. Now 78, Leyland received 15 of 16 votes by the contemporary era committee for managers, executives and umpires. He becomes the 23rd manager in the hall. Former player and manager Lou Piniella fell one vote short for the second time after also getting 11 votes in 2018. Former player, broadcaster and executive...

Realmuto also homered as the Phillies advanced to another best-of-five NL Division Series against Ronald Acuña Jr., Matt Olson and the Braves. Game 1 is Saturday in Atlanta. The NL champion Phillies...

Marlins in the playoffs! Chisholm, Bell have big hits vs. Pirates in clincher; team hopes to avoid Monday trip to NYC

PITTSBURGH — The Miami Marlins’ improbable September push will carry into October. Jazz Chisholm hit his 19th home run, Josh Bell delivered a late two-run double and the Marlins clinched the fourth playoff berth in franchise history with a 7-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday night. Miami locked down one of the two remaining National League wild-card spots behind Chisholm’s drive, a dash of small ball and another lockdown performance by a bullpen that has carried a sizable share of the load over the last month. A.J. Puk (7-5) and seven other relievers kept the Pirates in check, rendering...

More Marlins late-game heroics as Miami, facing 3-0 deficit in eighth inning, wins in Pittsburgh to move closer to playoff spot

PITTSBURGH — Josh Bell’s two-run double keyed a four-run, eighth-inning rally and the Miami Marlins moved closer to a playoff berth with a 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night. The Marlins did little through seven innings but broke through against Colin Selby (2-2) to reduce their magic number to earn the NL’s third wild-card spot to two. Miami entered the weekend with a chance to clinch the franchise’s first playoff berth in a non-pandemic-shortened season since 2003. The Marlins didn’t get into Pittsburgh until almost dawn on Friday morning following a long night in New York...
