MIAMI (AP) — It’s been a month since the Philadelphia
Phillies won a series ,
and Miami’s Sandy Alcantara made sure that drought continued.Alcantara pitched
shutout ball into the eighth inning in his second career start, Austin Dean
drove in a pair of runs and the Marlins beat the Phillies 2-1 on Wednesday
night.Alcantara (2-0) allowed three hits, walked two and struck out six. His
ERA, over 12 innings this season, dropped to 0.75.“You’re talking about a guy
who can be a top of the rotation guy,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.The
Phillies swept a four-game set from the Marlins from Aug. 2-5, and have lost 18
of 28 games since — with no series wins in any of their last nine opportunities.
They remained three games behind Atlanta in the NL East race, after the Braves
wasted a 7-1 lead and lost 9-8 earlier Wednesday to Boston.“We set out to win
every baseball game,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. “And our pleasure or
our disappointment hinges on how we perform, and not really what Atlanta’s
doing.”Jose Bautista had a pinch-hit double and eventually scored on Asdrubal
Cabrera’s flare into left field in the eighth, but the Phillies mustered nothing
else.Derek Dietrich scored both Miami runs, the first when Dean hit into a
fielder’s choice in the second, the other on Dean’s single to center in the
fourth. Both of those runs were charged to Phillies starter Nick Pivetta
(7-11) Marcus
Semien Jersey
, who gave up three hits and two runs in four
innings.“Their starting pitcher did a tremendous job,” Pivetta said. “But at the
end of the day, I was the guy who gave up two runs, so it’s on me.”Drew
Steckenrider allowed a walk and a single with one out in the ninth, but finished
off his fourth save with a pair of strikeouts.Alcantara walked Carlos Santana to
lead off the game, walked Roman Quinn to lead off the eighth, and issued no
other free passes. He was still reaching 98 mph in the seventh inning, then got
himself out of a little situation in the seventh to preserve what was then a 2-0
lead.Phillies catcher Jorge Alfaro, who had singled twice off Alcantara and had
three hits on the night, got plunked in the left arm when a fastball from the
Marlins rookie sailed up and in. Alfaro wasn’t amused, took a long stare toward
Alcantara as he walked to first.But Alcantara wasn’t rattled, and fanned Wilson
Ramos on three pitches to end the inning with his 2-0 lead intact. The Marlins
let him hit in the bottom of the seventh, then sent him back out for the eighth
— pulling him only after the walk to Quinn.That runner didn’t hurt Miami.
Santana lined out to second baseman Starlin Castro ,
Quinn got caught 30 feet off the bag and the Phillies went from having the
leadoff runner aboard to having the bases empty with two out.“Everything was
working tonight,” Alcantara said.Lewis Brinson had two hits for the Marlins,
continuing his strong return after missing two months with a right hip injury.
Brinson was hitting .154 when he got hurt; he’s now up to .201, after going 8
for 18 since coming back.TRAINER’S ROOMPhillies: 3B Maikel Franco returned to
Philadelphia to have his sore right wrist examined by a specialist. Franco is
expected to rejoin the team later this week, and didn’t play in any of the three
games in Miami.Marlins: JT Riddle (sore left wrist) remained sidelined, and
Miguel Rojas started again at shortstop in his place. The Marlins hope Riddle
can play Friday in Pittsburgh.SCOREBOARD WATCHINGThe Boston-Atlanta game was
early Wednesday, which meant the Phillies could watch it in their clubhouse
before taking the field in Miami. “We’re focused on our club right now but we
were certainly watching,” Kapler said.MSD STRONGThe Marlins and Phillies both
met with a couple of the survivors from the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman
Douglas High School before the game. Former Phillies star Jimmy Rollins signed
some autographs, and players from both sides handed out bats and batting gloves
as gifts.UP NEXTPhillies: Off Thursday, then RHP Aaron Nola (15-4, 2.23) starts
at the New York Mets and LHP Steven Matz (5-11, 4.20) on Friday.Marlins: Off
Thursday, then RHP Dan Straily (5-6 Reggie

, 4.13) starts at the Pittsburgh Pirates and RHP
Chris Archer (4-7, 4.56) on Friday. MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — New York Yankees All-Star
closer Aroldis Chapman could return next week from nearly a month on the
disabled list.Chapman has not pitched since Aug. 21 because of left knee
tendinitis, which has bothered him throughout the season. The 30-year-old
left-hander threw a bullpen session Wednesday and was to return to New York for
treatment. Manager Aaron Boone anticipates another bullpen session this weekend,
then a return.“Hopefully back with us, if everything goes well, sometime next
week,” Boone said before Wednesday’s game at Minnesota.Chapman has a 2.11 ERA
and 31 saves in 33 chances. Dellin Betances has closed mostly in Chapman’s
absence. New York’s bullpen also includes David Robertson, Zach Britton and Chad
Green.“You can look at it the same way you look at our lineup,” Boone said.
“When we were at our best, one of the reasons was the length of our lineup.
We’re able to hurt you from everywhere. … Same way with our bullpen. When you
add another guy of Chapman’s capabilities to an already strong group, it just
allows you in some cases and on some days to shorten the game even more.”
