|Erick Fedde will step on the mound Friday night for the eighth time in his major league career still in search of his first win. He might get it if he can replicate his recent success against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Fedde will try to help the Washington Nationals stop a three-game losing streak on Friday night in the second of a four-game series at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies will send Nick Pivetta to the mound for his second straight start against Washington.
Facing the Phillies last Saturday Brandon Scherff Jersey , Fedde (0-3, 5.32 ERA) had the best outing of his brief major league career. He went six-plus innings, giving up three runs on eight hits while inducing 13 ground balls. However, the Phillies scored two runs in the eighth inning in a 5-3 win.
“I thought Fedde did a tremendous job,” Nationals catcher Spencer Kieboom told MLB.com after the game. “I couldn’t be more proud of him. He did, he mixed all five pitches — sliders, curveballs, changeups, cutters in, fastballs. He did a good job. I thought he attacked hitters and at the beginning, we were kind of (nibbling) Antwaun Woods Jersey , but after that he really attacked.”
Fedde, 25, has pitched at least five innings in all four of his 2018 starts with the Nationals.
Saturday’s game was his first career appearance against the Phillies.
Pivetta (4-6, 4.06) also had a solid outing without a win last weekend. On Sunday night, Pivetta stayed in the game after a rain delay to complete five innings in Washington. He gave up eight hits but just two runs and notched seven strikeouts before the Nationals rallied against the Philadelphia bullpen.
The right-hander has a 5.81 ERA and opponents are hitting .301 against Pivetta in five June starts, but he has allowed just four runs and recorded 20 strikeouts in his last two appearances (12 1/3 innings).
Pivetta was acquired by the Phillies from Washington in exchange for reliever Jonathan Papelbon during the 2015 season. He is 0-2 with a 9.19 ERA in four career starts against the Nationals. His May 4 start against the Nationals has a lot to do with the high ERA, because he gave up six runs in one inning.
The Phillies opened the series with a 4-3 win on Thursday night. At 43-36, the Phillies are two games ahead of the Nationals (41-3 and just two games behind the Braves for first place in the National League East.
Philadelphia has won its last two games and Rhys Hoskins homered in both. In Thursday night’s series opener, the left fielder went 3-for-4 with a double and a two-run homer, his 13th of the season.
“Rhys had another huge (homer) for us,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told reporters after his team improved to 4-3 against the Nationals this season.
Hoskins http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/vladimir-ducasse-jersey , 25, is hitting .329 with seven homers and 20 RBIs in 18 games during June, raising his season average to .260 and his OPS to .871. Hoskins has just a .224 average in 14 career games against the Nationals, but eight of his 11 hits have gone for extra bases.
Washington, which managed to score three runs — two in the ninth inning — after being shut out in consecutive games, has lost 10 of 13.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings, who are running out of time before the regular season begins for rehabilitating center Pat Elflein to return, took a step toward protecting themselves by acquiring center Brett Jones in a trade with the New York Giants for a draft pick.
The deal, which is contingent on Jones passing a physical exam, was announced on Sunday. The Vikings didn’t disclose the selection, but NFL Media reported it’s a seventh-round choice in 2019.
The trade was made hours after coach Mike Zimmer said Elflein would not be ready to practice with the team this week Brett Favre Jersey , with the second-year starter still working his way back from offseason surgeries on his ankle and shoulder.
“He’s going to practice when he’s ready to go,” Zimmer said. “I don’t know when that’s going to be.”
Elflein was placed on the physically unable to perform list at the start of training camp, but Zimmer said he didn’t believe Elflein would land on the reserve PUP list next weekend when 53-man rosters must be established around the league. In that case, a player must sit out the first six weeks before he can resume practicing or playing.
Elflein was a third-round draft pick out of Ohio State last year. Cornelius Edison has taken his place with the first-team offense for now. Nick Easton took the spot when camp began, but he was diagnosed with a herniated disk in his neck and scheduled for season-ending surgery. That injury hit doubly hard, because Easton was in line to start at left guard for a second straight year.
Conveniently, Jones made his first career NFL start for the Giants at left guard in 2016. The 6-foot-2, 312-pound Jones started 13 games for the Giants last season at center, but he fell behind Jon Halapio on the depth chart in training camp .
John Greco has played well enough to gain the team’s trust as the backup. So the Giants, who are tight against the cap, dealt Jones and his $2.914 million salary to the Vikings.
“He’s one of my favorite guys http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/leighton-vander-esch-jersey , and he’s going to a really good place,” said Giants head coach Pat Shurmur, who was the offensive coordinator for the Vikings last year. “With their situation in the offensive line, he’s going to have a chance to compete to maybe be their starter.”
Jones was actually pulled off the practice field on Sunday when the trade was made.
“We’re going to make decisions based on what’s best for our team,” Shurmur said. “I like all the players that we have out here, and I want them all to have success.”
Jones, a native of Canada who attended Regina University in Saskatchewan, was the CFL’s Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman award winner in 2014, his second season with the Calgary Stampeders. He signed with the Giants in 2015.
