MIAMI — On Wednesday night http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , Miami Marlins rookie right-hander Sandy Alcantara will get another chance.Alcantara (1-0, 1.80 ERA), set to face the visiting Philadelphia Phillies in the rubber game of a three-contest series, will be making just his second major league start.Still, he doesn’t lack for confidence. The Dominican native with the golden right arm — his fastball has reached 102 mph — wasn’t too happy earlier this summer when he was still in New Orleans, which is Miami’s Triple-A affiliate.Article continues below ...“I have to wait for (the Marlins’) decision,” Alcantara said in Spanish at that time. “But I feel I should’ve been in the majors a long time ago. Sometimes it makes me mad. I attack hitters so that they know I should not be in the minors.”Alcantara, 22, finally made his first major league start on June 29, beating the New York Mets while allowing three hits Kyle Hendricks Jersey , five walks and one run in five innings.Immediately following that game, however, Alcantara landed on the disabled list due an infection in the armpit area.Now Alcantara will be matched up against Phillies right-hander Nick Pivetta (7-10, 4.66 ERA), a 25-year-old native of Canada.Pivetta took the road less traveled to the majors — from Canada to New Mexico Junior College and then the Washington Nationals, who drafted him in the first round in 2013.Last year, Pivetta made his major league debut, flashing a high-powered fastball that averages 94.8 mph.Pivetta has a 4.28 ERA in 16 home appearances this year, including 15 starts. On the road, Pivetta has been worse — a 5.19 ERA in 12 starts.In six career starts against the Marlins Mike Montgomery Jersey , Pivetta is 2-1 with a 5.83 ERA.The Phillies are counting on Pivetta because they gained a game on the first-place Atlanta Braves on Tuesday. The Phillies are now three games behind Atlanta in the National League East.“We have a ton of confidence,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told philly.com.The Phillies certainly played with confidence on Tuesday, getting three RBIs each from Cesar Hernandez and Asdrubal Cabrera in a 9-4 win over the Marlins.Carlos Santana also homered and had two RBIs for the Phillies, and Jake Arrieta struck out a season-best 11 batters to earn his 10th win of the season.Cabrera, acquired from the New York Mets on July 27, hit a two-run double and a solo homer. He has 23 homers this year — seven of them against Miami and five of those at Marlins Park. In fact, Cabrera has a home run in four straight games against the Marlins.Hernandez, who went 2-for-3 with two walks, a single and the triple, snapped out of a slump — he had gone 1-for-18 in his past five games.As for a hot Marlins hitter heading into Wednesday’s game http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , watch out for catcher J.T. Realmuto, who homered twice on Tuesday. He has 20 homers this season as a first-time All-Star.Realmuto will also be in charge of guiding Alcantara from his crouch behind home plate.“(Alcantara) throws hard, but they will hit you as you go up levels if that’s all you have,” New Orleans manager Arnie Beyeler said. “He needs to continue to develop his fastball command.” WASHINGTON — After a dominant August, the St. Louis Cardinals open a three-game series against the Washington Nationals looking for their first September win.The Cardinals dropped the final two games of their weekend series against the Cincinnati Reds, losing consecutive games for the first time since July 22-23.They arrive in Washington trailing the just departed Milwaukee Brewers by a half-game and the Chicago Cubs by 5 1/2 games in the National League Central. The Cardinals (76-61) had won 10 straight series.Article continues below ...A stellar pitching matchup opens the series Monday afternoon as St. Louis right-hander Jack Flaherty (8-6, 2.87 ERA) opposes right-hander Max Scherzer (16-6, 2.22).Flaherty went 4-0 in August with a 1.13 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 32 innings. Last time out he allowed one run and four hits in seven innings of a win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. He struck out five without a walk.“He’s a little different. Motivated. Works hard. Takes care of himself. I would really love to see him sustain what he’s doing for a long time,” Cardinals pitching coach Mike Maddux told the St. Louis Post Dispatch. “He’s really learning himself. And the more he learns himself, the more he likes himself Jose Quintana Jersey , and it shows in his performance,”Scherzer, a candidate for a third straight NL Cy Young Award, is coming off two starts against Aaron Nola and the Philadelphia Phillies. He lost the first one and got a no-decision as Washington won the second. Scherzer was 2-1 during in August with a 1.89 ERA.He leads the league in strikeouts and his next one will give him 250 for the fifth straight season.Scherzer is 2-4 with a 2.70 ERA in eight starts against the Cardinals.On Sunday, the Cardinals loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth inning but failed to score, and Cincinnati’s Eugenio Suarez clubbed a two-run homer in the 10th in the Reds’ 6-4 win.“We weren’t able to execute our situational hitting where we wanted tonight,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. “It’s been a strength of our club, and we expect it to be a strength of our club. We can’t overreact to (three) at-bats.”Cardinals right fielder Jose Martinez struck out four times. He has fanned seven times in nine at-bats.“I think what we’re seeing is he’s human. Just expanding the zone, maybe trying to do a little too much,” Shildt said. “He’ll be just fine. We’ll take him up there tomorrow in the same situation. I’ll tell you that.”Washington (68-69) couldn’t build on Saturday’s come-from-behind win and lost the rubber game to Milwaukee 9-4. The Nationals walked 11 batters Sunday http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , matching the team record since the club moved to Washington in 2005.Nationals starter Jefry Rodriguez (2-2) issued seven walks and allowed seven runs in 4 2/3 innings as the Brewers broke the game open with a seven-run fifth.“It’s the walks,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. “When you fall behind, it’s tough. They got pretty good hitters.”Three games into a 10-game homestand, the Nationals are 8 1/2 games behind the first-place Atlanta Braves with 25 games to play and eight back in the wild-card race.“You never give in to the game,” Nationals second baseman Wilmer Difo told the Washington Post. “Today, it didn’t happen for us, but it wasn’t because we changed our mindset or approach at all. It’s not always going to happen.”
