healthy.Wheeler pitched seven solid innings Antworten

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — If this was it for Zack Wheeler Ozzie Smith Jersey , he finished strong and — probably most importantly — for his career-best 12th win in what may have been his final start of the season, Michael Conforto had a career-high six RBIs and the New York Mets beat the fading Philadelphia Phillies 9-4 on Monday night.Wheeler (12-7) allowed four runs and three hits to become the first Mets pitcher since Steve Trachsel in 2001 to record nine wins after the All-Star Game. Since the break, the right-hander is 9-1 with a 1.68 ERA in 11 starts.“Probably the best pitcher in baseball the last 1½ months,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said.New York was eliminated from playoff contention Monday night when St. Louis beat Atlanta. Callaway wants to be cautious with Wheeler and said he would discuss with Mets management whether he makes another start.The right-hander is three innings shy of his career best, the 185 1/3 he threw in 2014 before injuries halted his promising career. Wheeler didn’t pitch at all in the majors in 2015 or 2016 following Tommy John surgery, and was limited to 86 1/3 innings last season due to a stress reaction in his pitching arm.“We want to make sure we’re taking care of the player,” Callaway said.Wheeler, who opened the season in the minors, is relieved to be pitching and feeling so well.“It’s been smooth sailing for the most part this year,” he said.Asked if he wanted to continue to pitch Albert Pujols Jersey , Wheeler said, “Still feeling good. It’s not my call. I’ll leave it up to those guys.”Conforto, after a rocky start, also is feeling good. The Mets outfielder already has 22 RBIs this month, giving him 75 for the season.“If I put the work in and stayed positive, I knew at some point it would come around,” he said. “It feels like I’m not searching so much. It took five months I guess, but I finally got it.”Conforto had a two-run single in the fifth, an RBI double in the seventh and a three-run homer in the ninth for the Mets, who have won seven of 11 and are 26-17 over their last 43 games. Conforto has 45 RBIs since the All-Star break , second-most in the NL over that span behind Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich.“This is the Michael Conforto everyone wants to see,” Callaway said. “This is one of the better players in the league when he’s going like this.”The Phillies, as a team, have been heading in the opposite direction.J.P. Crawford had a three-run triple for the Phillies, whose slim playoff chances took another hit. Philadelphia is 6½ games back of first-place Atlanta in the NL East and five games out of the wild card. The Phillies have lost eight of 11.Conforto’s two-out double in the seventh off Tommy Hunter (4-3) snapped a 4-all tie and helped the Mets continue their mastery of Philadelphia.Wheeler didn’t allow a hit until Wilson Ramos‘ leadoff single in the fifth that caromed off the glove of diving second baseman Jeff McNeil and into short right field. Wheeler then gave up a single to Nick Williams and hit Odubel Herrera with a pitch to load the bases. Crawford cleared them with a triple to right, and Cesar Hernandez’s sacrifice fly scored Crawford to tie it at 4.The Mets took a 4-0 lead against Jake Arrieta. Austin Jackson’s RBI double in the second got New York on the board, and the Mets scored three more runs in the fifth on Amed Rosario’s sacrifice fly and Conforto’s single to center.Arrieta was tagged for four runs and nine hits in five innings.PHILLIES’ FOILNew York has won 11 of 17 against the Phillies this season and is 44-20 in Philadelphia since 2012.“They’ve just flat-out beat us,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. “They have beat us in good matchups. They have beat us in bad matchups. They have just handled us well.”WALK THIS WAYPhiladelphia’s Carlos Santana walked in the second inning to reach 100 for the season for the third time in his career. He has 101 walks after a sixth-inning free pass.TRAINER’S ROOMPhillies: 3B Maikel Franco (neck) missed his fifth straight game. Kapler said he expects Franco to return in two or three days. … Williams (shoulder) returned to the lineup after sitting out the last three games. . INF Asdrubal Cabrera left in the fifth inning with a left calf strain. He will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.UP NEXTMets LHP Steven Matz (5-11, 4.18 ERA) opposes RHP Aaron Nola (16-5, 2.42) in the middle game of the series. GLENDALE Roger Maris Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers say ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw is expected to resume his regular throwing program next week.Manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that Kershaw was feeling better.Roberts gave Kershaw a chance to “reset” after two spring outings on the mound. The three-time Cy Young Award winner said he “just didn’t feel right” after a live batting practice session on Monday and a bullpen on Wednesday.“Right now, we’re going to stick with the same program and see how he feels,” Roberts said. “I know talking to him, he feels better physically. When the training staff decides that we can ramp things back up, we will do so.”Kershaw has dealt with back injuries the past three seasons and a shoulder injury last year. This week, Roberts announced Kershaw his opening day starter to face Arizona on March 28 at Dodger Stadium.“Just in talking to him and seeing his disposition, he’s encouraged by how his body is responding,” Roberts said.The 30-year-old Kershaw signed a three-year, $93 million contract in November after going 9-5 with a 2.73 ERA in 26 starts last season.Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt, who’s been rehabbing from back surgery Matt Carpenter Jersey , he could only watch video of Kershaw’s live batting practice session and could tell something wasn’t right.“I actually had a premonition after his throwing live,” Honeycutt said Saturday, his first day in Dodgers camp. “He didn’t sound great that day. I know it’s a very frustrating time for him right now.”Honeycutt was glad to be back at work for the first time since undergoing back surgery on Feb. 12. Bullpen coach Mark Prior has been overseeing the pitchers while Honeycutt was sidelined and provided updates.“Kersh is going to power through whatever,” Honeycutt said. “It wasn’t like you saw anything that jumped out of the video that would say, ‘Whoa, something’s not right.’ What he’s going through I think is a feel, it’s a feeling of the throws being proper and it’s not that you see something mechanical that’s the issue. It’s more just what’s going on inside the joint right now.”
