NEW YORK -- Half the innings, twice the fun. As far as the Miami Marlins are concern - jokergreen0220 - 27.02.2020

NEW YORK -- Half the innings, twice the fun. As far as the Miami Marlins are concerned, the headline can be "Extra! Extra! Read all about it." A day after beating the New York Mets in 20 innings, they needed only 10. Derek Dietrich hit a tying home run in the eighth and second baseman Daniel Murphys 10th-inning error allowed Logan Morrison to score the go-ahead run in his first game in 11 months, boosting the Marlins to an 8-4 victory and a two-game sweep. "Id rather win in nine, but I guess anything less than 20 is good," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. Morrison singled off Bobby Parnell (4-3) leading off the 10th and went to second on Justin Ruggianos single. Adeiny Hechavarria, whose 20th-inning single was the difference Saturday, failed in two bunt attempts, then hit a potential-double play grounder to Murphy. Preparing for a quick throw to second, Murphy allowed the ball to skip off his glove and into right field. "I missed it," Murphy said. "Tough for me to speak about the whole team. I can speak for myself: Frustrated." Recovered from right knee surgery, Morrison played his first big league game since July 28. "Got goose bumps during the national anthem. Felt like my first day in the big leagues again," he said. Morrison also contributed in the eighth, when he was running from second to third and got hit on the right ankle by Hechavarrias grounder, preventing a potential double play. Hechavarria was awarded a single, and Morrison was out. "Dumbest smart guy in the world," Morrison said. Greg Dobbs widened the 10th-inning lead with sacrifice fly off Rob Carson, and Miguel Olivo followed with a two-run homer. No need to repeat Saturdays 6-hour, 25-minute marathon, won by the Marlins 2-1. This one lasted "just" 3:35 and there were 333 pitches, bringing the two-game total to 894. The last-place Marlins had a season-high 17 hits to six for the Mets. They rallied from a 4-1 deficit and improved their record against New York this year to 8-3. Miami is 10-41 against other teams. "I can tell we like playing the Mets," said Dietrich, whose five home runs this year have all either tied the score or put the Marlins ahead. It was the first time in 24 years that teams played a game of 20 innings or more, then went extras again the next day, according to STATS. The Houston Astros beat the Dodgers 5-4 in 22 innings at the Astrodome on June 3, 1989, a game that ended with Fernando Valenzuela playing first base for Los Angeles, then won 7-6 in 13 innings the following day. And it was the first time since the Angels beat Seattle on April 13-14, 1982, that a team won consecutive games that went exactly 20 innings and then 10. Chad Qualls (1-0) got his first win since July 13 last year, striking out Justin Turner and Anthony Recker with the potential winning run on base in the ninth. After the game, New York demoted first baseman Ike Davis, Carson and outfielder Mike Baxter to Triple-A Las Vegas. The team will call up infielder Josh Satin, outfielder Collin Cowgill and left-handed reliever Josh Edgin before Tuesday nights series opener against St. Louis. "Its tough to sit through 30 innings and score not even a handful of runs," general manager Sandy Alderson said. "So its been frustrating for everybody. Im sure it was frustrating for our fans, too." Jonathon Niese, pitching for the first time since May 27 after skipping a turn due to a sore left shoulder, allowed three runs -- two earned -- and eight hits in 6 2-3 innings. Dietrich tied the score 4-all when he homered off Scott Rice leading off the eighth. Tom Koehler remained winless in seven career starts and 20 appearances, giving up four runs and six hits in seven innings for Miami. The 26-year-old right-hander was born in the Bronx and went to nearby New Rochelle High School and then Stony Brook University. He was 0 for 10 at the plate before singling down the left-field line in the seventh for his first big league hit. He had about 100 family members and friends at Citi Field. "All of a sudden, you look up and you could see them cheering you on when youre walking off the field or walking out there to stretch," Koehler said. He leaked runs early but didnt break. Hechavarria put Miami ahead with a run-scoring single in the second, but Murphy homered leading off the bottom half and David Wright hit a two-run double in the third, which also included Murphys RBI grounder. Marcell Ozuna had an RBI double off the centre-field wall with two on in the sixth, and another run scored when Juan Lagares dropped the ball while transferring it from his glove to his throwing hand for an error. While the Marlins have the worst record in the majors, theyre champions against the Mets. "We dont have a lot of wins, but weve earned every single one of them," Redmond said. "Hopefully we can build off this momentum." NOTES: Koehler has two walks in 84 at-bats against right-handed hitters. ...

NEW YORK -- Alex Rodriguez will play his final game for the New York Yankees on Friday night and, as of now, the only thing hes planning for Saturday morning is a hangover.If I wake up on time tomorrow, I would watch tomorrows game, Rodriguez said in a news conference before the Yankees game against the Tampa Bay Rays. But I may have a couple of cocktails tonight, so I may not wake up by game time tomorrow. But Ill definitely watch Sundays game.Rodriguez is batting third in the Yankees lineup against Chris Archer, after which he will be unconditionally released by the club following 11-plus seasons, two American League MVP awards and one World Series title.Thereafter, he will be a free agent for the first time since the brief period in 2007, when he opted out of the 10-year, $252 million contract he signed with the Texas Rangers in 2001 that became the property of the Yankees when they traded for him before the 2004 season.Technically, he can be approached by -- and can sign with -- any of the 29 other clubs, who would be obligated to pay only a pro-rated portion of the major league minimum salary to acquire his services.Rodriguez was asked if a phone call from another team would be difficult to resist, especially since he sits just four home runs shy of 700, a plateau reached by just four other players in big league history.Well, unless its Hal [Steinbrenner], I probably wont be answering the phone for anyone, Rodriguez said. Im going to go and take a nap for a minute. I need some rest, kind of recover and reflect; spend some time with my two little ones. Its been a great run and an incredible journey. I never thought when I first entered Fenway Park as an 18-year-old that I would play for 10 years, forget 22 years. Im going to take some time for myself.After a surprising 2015 season in which he hit 33 home runs despite missing all of 2014 while on suspension for PED violations in connection with baseballs Biogenesis scandal, Rodriguez has struggled throughout 2016. He is hitting .199 with nine home runs and 30 RBIs in 64 games as a designated hitter. Rodriguez, in fact, struggled in the last two months of 2015, hitting just .191 after July 31.And the consensus within the Yankees upper management is that Rodriguezs struggles are not just an extended slump.We just havent seen the explosiveness and the production that wed seen the first four months of last year, manager Joe Girardi said. This is not just this year. It happened in August aand September of last year, and when you get to a certain age, whenever you struggle, the first thing theyre going to ask, is he too old? As an athlete, those are things that you have to deal with.dddddddddddd I dont ever put anything past someone. Im not ever going to say someone cant do something, but what weve seen has led us to make this decision.Rodriguezs final game caps a tumultuous five days that began with an emotional news conference Sunday, when it was announced he would be released as a player but was given the option of continuing with the Yankees organization as a special advisor, an option he indicated he would accept.General manager Brian Cashman made it clear that Rodriguez was free to change his mind, or to play for another team if he so chose. A team source indicated that the offer would remain even if A-Rod accepted an offer from another team.I do not believe Hal would pull it off the table, the source told ESPN. Hals a good guy. Hes a good person. I dont think it ever got bad between Alex and Hal.Said Rodriguez: Hal has given me an opportunity to stay involved with the organization. With all my screw-ups and how badly Ive acted, the fact that Im walking out the door and Hal wants me as part of the family, thats hitting 800 home runs for me. Thats something Ill be able to share with my daughters for a long time.Rodriguez, however, admitted that his relationship with Girardi has been strained over the past month. Before Thursday night in Boston, Rodriguez had started just one game since July 22 -- and, despite his wishes, started just one of the Yankees three recent games against the Boston Red Sox.Its been very difficult, Rodriguez said. I said its been awkward and difficult. But we are a family and weve had a wonderful relationship for the last 10 years. Its been really good. Families have disagreements and thats OK. He has his opinion and I have mine. But in the long run, were going to be fine.And even while sidestepping the question of whether he would play again, Rodriguez didnt rule it out.I said on Sunday that my horizon is Friday and it still is, he said. We want to win the game tonight. Thats still my approach. After all of this, Im going to need a long nap to recover and Ill see where life takes me. Right now, I value wearing this uniform. For me, the Yankees pinstripes is enough. ' ' '
