MISE À DAY
Charles Leblanc is gaining more and more confidence from the Miami Marlins and he gave them back Wednesday night by putting his name on the board in a 4-3 loss to the Phillies in Philadelphia.
The Quebecer was hitting fifth and produced his second run this season, in the fourth inning. The visitors took a 2-0 lead on Leblanc's single, which allowed J.J. Bleday to cross the plate.
The 26-year-old continued to reach the bases with two hits in that match. He now shows a batting average of .429.
However, it was another loss for the poor Marlins (49-61), who are 2-8 with Leblanc in the lineup. The Phillies (62-48) picked up three runs in the ninth inning on paid singles from Brandon Marsh, Kyle Schwarber and J.T. Realmuto to save themselves with the game.
Despite Aaron Judge's 45th longball in 2022, the Seattle Mariners found a way to defeat the New York Yankees 4-3 on Wednesday at T-Mobile Park.
The winners took the lead in the sixth inning, when Sam Haggerty hit a solo homer. Upon their next return to bat, the Bronx Bombers opened the machine. Kyle Higashioka and Judge kicked the ball out of bounds.
Yankees No. 99 became the fifth player in legendary club history to hit at least two 45-homer seasons . Only Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Alex Rodriguez and Mickey Mantle had achieved the feat before him.
Coming back to the Mariners, they didn't allow their rivals to keep the momentum going for long. On their return on offense, Mitch Haniger first closed the gap with a single. Carlos Santana then restored the lead by sending the ball the other side of the fence, while Haniger still occupied the paths.
The victory went to the record of Penn Murfee (3-0 ), who worked for only two thirds of an inning. Sent in ninth to close the books, Paul Sewald succeeded in his mission and signed his 15th save of the current campaign.
On the mound for Santana's cannon shot, Albert Abreu (2-2) suffered the setback.
