He also walked twice and has three homers and eight RBIs in his last six games.Ramirez’s home run came against Deck McGuire, called up from Triple-A Salt Lake to start in place of the injured Tyler Skaggs.McGuire (0-2) retired only one batter, allowed three runs and was pulled with the bases loaded in the first. While McGuire had never any of Cleveland’s hitters, he knew what he was getting into with Ramirez at the plate.“I threw a fastball down the middle, and a really good hitter put a really good swing on it,” he said.Rookie Shane Bieber (6-2) allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings. Brad Hand — the Indians fourth reliever — allowed a run in the ninth but got his third save with Cleveland and 27th of the season.Before the game Angels manager Mike Scioscia dismissed a report that he’s stepping down after this season.

He made a head-first diving catch of balls hit by Jefry Marte and Calhoun in the third. Cabrera hung on to Ohtani’s drive to right field after crashing into the wall in the fourth.“He was all over the place,” Francona said. “That was kind of cool to hear the way the fans responded to it too. He did a good job.”MAKESHIFT LINEUPTrout and Pujols were out of the lineup and Upton wasn’t used until the ninth. Eric Young Jr. started in center again while Simmons batted cleanup and Francisco Arcia played first base.“We had a lot of guys out but the guys that were in there played hard and we hit the ball harder than they did, we just couldn’t get that extra hit with guys in scoring position,” Scioscia said.MILLER’S OUTINGAndrew Miller made his second appearance since spending two months on the DL with right knee inflammation, entering in the seventh with a runner on first. He retired Calhoun on a lineout to center, but allowed Young’s single and hit Ohtani with a pitch.Miller was relieved by Cody Allen, who threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings.“It wasn’t exactly like we drew it up, but with the way their lineup shook out it fit kind of perfectly to go in that order,” Allen said.ROSTER NEWSInfielder Luis Valbuena was designated for assignment to make room for McGuire.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers bolstered their bullpen on Friday, acquiring right-hander Ryan Madson from the Washington Nationals for a minor league pitcher.The five-time defending NL West champions have Kenley Jansen as their closer Chris Iannetta Jersey , but he’s been shaky since coming off the disabled list, allowing seven earned runs in four innings over four appearances.Madson was 5-5 with five saves and a 4.08 ERA in 69 games for Washington. The 38-year-old recently came off the DL after being sidelined by nerve irritation that caused pain in his neck and back.“Feels like a fresh start, especially to a year I’ve struggled a little bit,” Madson said as he was leaving Nationals Park. “Now none of that matters. All that matters is from this point forward and helping that team win games. That’s it.”Madson, who helped Philadelphia and Kansas City win World Series titles, was acquired by the Nationals with fellow reliever Sean Doolittle from Oakland in July 2017.“Just push the ball to Kenley and that sort of reminds me of old times with (Brad) Lidge. Just push the ball to Lidge and we win,” Madson said of his time with the Phillies. “So, push the ball to Kenley and we win.”For his career, Madson is 61-48 with a 3.45 ERA and 91 saves.“What he’s done is proven, pitched in big spots,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “We’re betting on the stuff and the person.”After joining the Nationals last July, Madson went 3-0 with a 1.37 ERA and one save in 20 games as Washington captured its second straight NL East title.“It was a huge jolt to my career last year, coming into the playoff push and kind of revitalizing … actually showed myself what I can do http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-mcmahon-jersey ,” Madson said. “My stuff got so much better and so I really appreciate them bringing me over here.”Los Angeles (72-62) began the day two games behind Arizona in the NL West and 2½ games back in the wild-card chase.Roberts said Madson would arrive in Los Angeles on Friday night and be activated on Saturday.“Just to have another leverage arm is good for all of us,” Roberts said. “He’s a guy who throughout his career has actually gotten lefties out better than righties, so to have him at any point we want to play him, that’s a good thing.”Washington, which unloaded second baseman Daniel Murphy and first baseman Matt Adams on Aug. 21, received right-handed pitcher Andrew Istler from the Dodgers. Istler, 25, went 4-4 with a 2.37 ERA in 41 games (one start) between three levels of Los Angeles’ minor league system.Additionally, the Nationals recalled left-handed pitcher Sammy Solis from Triple-A Syracuse.To make room on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers designated left-handed pitcher Adam Liberatore for assignment.Washington (67-67), the two-time defending NL East champion, entered Friday 7½ games behind first-place Atlanta and 7½ back in the wild card.
