Hardy's crowd-pleasing HR lifts Orioles past Rays 9-4 If this was indeed J.J. Hardy's final game at Camden Yards with the Orioles, he couldn't have asked for a better scenario. Hardy enjoyed an unforgettable afternoon during an otherwise dreary season, hitting a crowd-pleasing home run and scoring twice to help Baltimore beat Houston Astros Jerseys the Tampa Bay Rays 9-4 on Sunday. Rookie Chance Sisco also homered for the Orioles, who earned a split of the four-game series to finish their home schedule with a 46-35 record. On Saturday night, Baltimore was mathematically eliminated from the playoff hunt and assured its Chicago Cubs Jerseys first losing season since 2011. So the focus in the finale shifted almost entirely to Hardy, a fixture at shortstop for Baltimore since his arrival in 2010. Three straight injury-riddled seasons — including a stay on the 60-day disabled list this year — lessened his contribution. The acquisition of shortstop Tim Beckham in a July trade Los Angeles Dodgers jerseys with the Rays makes the 35-year-old Hardy expendable, especially with a contract that has a $14 million team option for 2018 with a $2 million buyout. Thus, most of the 23,424 fans rose to their feet and cheered when Hardy came to the plate in the first inning. "Definitely caught me off guard, and I had to fight some emotions," he said. "I'm thinking, 'Why are they doing this now?'" Because the Orioles arranged it, that's why. Chicago Cubs Jerseys Team officials told the umpires and the Rays that they were setting up the ovation, which included Hardy's teammates walking to the top step of the dugout. "We kind of snuck that in behind J.J.'s back because we know what he would have said if he knew it was coming," manager Buck Showalter said. "When the fans started getting loud I thought that was cool," Hardy said. He followed the initial standing ovation with a groundout, but gave the crowd something to yell about New York Yankees jerseys in the fourth, when he ripped a two-run homer off Chris Archer (9-12) to give Baltimore a 6-4 lead. The fans cheered as he rounded the bases and remained on their feet until Hardy finally acknowledged their request for a curtain call by emerging from the dugout and raising his helmet toward the sky. "Manny (Machado) shoved me out there. I didn't really have a choice," Hardy said. "Another cool moment. Today is a day that I'll always remember, for sure." Even the Rays appreciated the moment.

Chicago Cubs Jerseys the grip of the Arizona Diamondbacks

“Weaver’s really responded well to his innings, and I’ve heard nothing but good things about Flaherty,’’ veteran infielder Matt Carpenter said. “When you get an opportunity to see some young guys come up and do well, sometimes that can be something that jolts a team. Hopefully that’s what we get from these guys.’’ The Cardinals could use the extra shot of energy, considering the Cubs have finally asserted themselves as the class of the division — going 30-15 since the All-Star break — and the wild-card spots remain in Chicago Cubs Jerseys the grip of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies. Even the upstart Milwaukee Brewers, fellow Central neighbors, stand ahead of St. Louis. So Los Angeles Dodgers jerseys this might be the most propitious time for the Cardinals to find out what they have in Flaherty, one of five or six September call-ups they’re planning on. Matheny said the club wanted to promote players at a time when they’re thriving, and Flaherty certainly qualifies. After overwhelming Class AA hitters — he went 7-2 with a 1.42 ERA and a 0.916 WHIP in 10 starts — Flaherty more than held his own upon being promoted to Class AAA Memphis, where he posted the same record with a 2.74 ERA in 15 starts. In the final eight, his ERA was just Houston Astros Jerseys 1.98. His four-pitch repertoire includes an improved changeup that plays well off his mid-90s fastball. “It’s been another weapon to supplement, to throw in different counts, kind of go to it to catch guys off balance,’’ Flaherty said. “The development of the confidence to be able to throw it and to want to throw it, I think that’s where everything comes into play.’’ Flaherty’s steady progression through the Cardinals’ well-stocked system may put him on pace to compete for a spot on what projects as a youthful rotation next season, with Alex Reyes – who has been out all year following Tommy John surgery — possibly joining the likes of Carlos Martinez, Wacha and Weaver. Wainwright is under contract for next year but Lynn will be a free agent after the World Series. Carpenter, in his seventh Chicago Cubs Jerseys season with the club, New York Yankees jerseys understands how the organization operates and sounded more accepting of the Leake trade. “The reality is we have a ton of guys pushing on the brink of the big leagues and not a lot of spots for them, and that opened up one,’’ he said. “I think that’s what that move was made for more than anything.’’ If you want to know more about 2017 world baseball information, see, you can get it!
