Stanton goes down swinging in quest for 60

Giancarlo Stanton and Marlins top Braves 7-1 in Miami

Stanton came up short in his quest for 60 home runs, and Adonis Garcia hit a pinch-hit three-run home run to lift the Atlanta Braves over the Marlins 8-5 in the season finale for both teams Sunday.

Maeda (13-6) came on in the fourth inning as the third pitcher for the NL West champion Dodgers, and gave up two hits in two scoreless innings. "He's doing it in a ballpark that's not conducive to easy home runs".

Marwin Gonzalez also had three RBIs, Alex Bregman hit his 18th home run, a two-run blast, and Brian McCann clocked a solo shot, his 17th, for Houston.

Since the All-Star Break, Stanton has 33 home runs in 70 games, and in September, the slugger has gone deep eight times.

Ozuna made $3.5 million this year, is arbitration eligible next season, and is under team control for two more seasons.

Every team except Houston, which had no top-100 selections that year, passed on the chance to get Stanton - and most of those teams had multiple chances. They're nowhere near a playoff spot as they're 15 games behind the Rockies for the remaining wild card spot in the National League.

In Sunday's game, Marlins reliever Junichi Tazawa (3-5) took the loss after giving up three hits and three runs in two-thirds of an inning. He did have 14 intentional walks and batted.328 during those final 21 games so he did not go into any slump by any standard.

Marlins fans will certainly hate to see Stanton leave should that happen, but not almost as much as they'll hate living through another team sale and rebuild.

Cesar Puello added to the inning with an RBI single, and Peter Bourjos capped the rally with a two-run triple.

The Sherman-Jeter group will take over a team that finished last in the NL in attendance for the 12th time in the past 13 years, and the resulting payroll constraints make a lineup shake-up inevitable.




Minnesota meets NY on Tuesday in the American League wild-card game.

Fried makes his fourth start and ninth appearance of his rookie season, looking to build off a strong outing Monday despite taking a loss to the New York Mets.

Bridwell (10-3) allowed three hits, struck out three and walked one while lowering his ERA to 3.64 and becoming the team's second double-digit victor this season.

Pablo Sandoval belted a season-ending home run with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning to give San Francisco the victory over San Diego.

The Mariners' James Paxton matched Bridwell before leaving after six innings, allowing no runs and three hits, striking out nine and walking none. He stayed healthy, playing in more games than ever before.

Cueto pitched the game's first five innings, leaving in a 4-4 tie. Once again, he did not just set a career high in runs scored, he bested his previous record by 32 runs.

He's won four of his last five decisions and holds an impressive 2.08 ERA over his last six starts.

Aaron Wilkerson retired the first 17 batters he faced as Milwaukee defeated St. Louis.

Mengden (3-2) didn't allow a baserunner until Adrian Beltre led off the fifth with a single to center.
