Take a look around the league with Big League Stew’s daily wrap up. We’ll hit on all of the biggest moments from the day that you may have missed, while providing highlights, photos and interesting stats. Dan Jennings will begin his managerial career with a loss. The new Miami Marlins manager couldn’t lead his club to victory Monday, losing 3-2 against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It wasn’t really Jennings’ fault, though. Miami had a tough time doing anything against D-Backs starter Rubby De La Rosa. De La Rosa was both dominant and efficient during the contest. He allowed two runs on six hits over nine innings. De La Rosa made one mistake, hanging a breaking ball against J.T. Realmuto in the seventh. Realmuto blasted the pitch out to left, tying the game 2-2. De La Rosa had only thrown 94 pitches through nine innings, but the club opted not to bring him out for the 10th. He wound up with a no-decision. De La Rosa was matched by Dan Haren during the start. Haren allowed two runs on six hits over eight innings. He also wound up receiving a no-decision. The two teams remained deadlocked until the 13th inning. With a man on first, David Peralta managed an RBI-double, giving Arizona the 3-2 lead. Enrique Burgos would come on in the bottom of the inning, nailing down the save. With the win, Arizona improved to 16-21. SURGING SOX SAVED BY SANCHEZ The Chicago White Sox continued their winning ways Monday against the Cleveland Indians. They would need extra innings to do so, pulling out the 2-1 victory for their sixth straight win. With the win, the club is over .500 for the first time this season. It didn’t come easy, however. Indians ace Corey Kluber proved to be on his game again, striking out 12 White Sox over nine innings. He allowed just one run on four hits. Kluber was matched by Chris Sale. Sale gave up a run on four hits over eight innings. He struck out seven during the start. With the game tied in the bottom of the 10th, rookie infielder Carlos Sanchez stepped to the plate with a chance to become a hero. He did not disappoint. On the third pitch of the at-bat, Sanchez knocked a walk-off single against Indians reliever Zach McAllister. Left fielder Zach Walters nearly made a diving catch, but couldn’t get to the ball in time. Sanchez, who was recently called up to replace Micah Johnson, is hitting .263 in his brief major-league stint. MAYBERRY DELIVERS FOR METS The White Sox weren’t the only team to pick up a walk-off win Monday. The New York Mets managed to accomplish the same feat, picking up a 2-1 victory over the Cardinals. New York was on track to win the game in nine innings, but the club’s bullpen allowed the game to stretch into extra innings. Starter Matt Harvey was fantastic, giving up just six hits over eight scoreless innings. He struck out nine during the contest. With the club up by a run in the bottom of the ninth, Jeurys Familia came on for the save. Up until Monday, he had been a perfect 13-13 in save chances. That did not last. With a man on third and one out, Familia allowed a sacrifice fly, tying the game 1-1. The two teams would remain deadlocked until the bottom of the 14th. With the bases loaded, the Mets turned to pinch-hitter John Mayberry. On the first pitch he saw from closer Trevor Rosenthal, Mayberry hit a groundball past the shortstop, bringing in the winning run. With the win, the Mets improved to 23-16. PHILLIES KEEP WINNING Don’t look now, but the Philadelphia Phillies are surging. The club picked up its sixth straight victory, beating the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Monday. Philadelphia was led by Cole Hamels, who turned in a strong start. The left-hander allowed one run on six hits over 7 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked one during the contest. The Phillies bullpen nearly blew the game late, but managed to hold on. Luis Garcia allowed a run in the eighth inning, cutting the lead to two. Closer Jonathan Papelbon came out for the save opportunity in the ninth, but ran into a bit of trouble. After notching a strikeout to begin the frame, Papelbon gave up a triple against DJ LeMahieu. Papelbon would pick up another strikeout, but couldn’t stop Charlie Blackmon from driving in LeMahieu with a single. With the lead down to just one run, Papelbon managed to strike out Nolan Arenado to end the game. With the victory, the Phillies no longer reside in the cellar of the National League East.
