Dave Martinez will return next season

OAKLAND … -ii-jersey , Calif. (AP) — Whether playing 20 straight games without a break, bouncing back from a tough loss or pulling off a late-game rally, manager Bob Melvin sure appreciates his resilient Oakland Athletics.Stephen Piscotty hit a two-run single, Matt Chapman and Matt Olson each doubled in a run, and the A’s jumped on the New York Yankees early for an 8-2 win Wednesday night.Jed Lowrie added a run-scoring single as the A’s backed righty Mike Fiers (11-6), who escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first after Giancarlo Stanton’s one-out double and a pair of two-out walks. Fiers is 4-0 in six starts since joining Oakland, and the A’s have won all his outings.The A’s moved within 3 1/2 games of the Yankees for the top AL wild card, also remaining 3 1/2 back of the AL West-leading Astros.“These guys play hard,” Fiers said. “I love playing for this team. They back me up no matter what. Long first inning, then we come up and put together good at-bats and put up four. You can’t ask for anything more and I think that kind of settled me down as well.”Fiers struck out the side in order in the sixth … upp-jersey , and the lone hit he allowed after the first was Aaron Hicks‘ leadoff single in the fourth before Gary Sanchez’s two-run homer in the seventh chased the Oakland starter.Fiers fanned five in six innings, giving up three hits as the A’s concluded a grueling stretch of 20 games without an off day.“Grinding through the 20 days, it’s finally over, in the middle of August, against the teams we were matched up against, pretty impressive,” Melvin said. “I told them that after the game. They play with the same pace every day.”New York right-hander Luis Severino (17-7) reached 200 strikeouts for the second consecutive season but was done with two outs in the third for his shortest outing of the season. He allowed six runs — five earned — on six hits.Severino threw two wild pitches that scored separate runs in the first, when Sanchez also had a pair of passed balls.“A couple misunderstandings at the plate. A leadoff double, then another double. A bunch of stuff. A couple of cross-ups with the signs. It was a mess,” Severino said. “I need to do a better job. I need to communicate more with Gary. I have to try to make it better.”PLATE PROBLEMSSanchez’s 13 passed balls matched the Angels’ Martin Maldonado for most in majors. Sanchez tied for the big league high with 16 last year. He also has been behind the plate for 37 wild pitches after being part of 53 in 2017.The home run was Sanchez’s first since June 20 against Seattle.HALL OF FAMEThe first class in the Athletics Hall of Fame was enshrined during a pregame ceremony.Hall of Famers Dennis Eckersley … off-jersey , Rollie Fingers, Rickey Henderson and the late Jim “Catfish” Hunter, along with Reggie Jackson and 1989 World Series MVP Dave Stewart were part of the class. So was late A’s owner Charlie Finley.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: RF Aaron Judge took soft-toss swings and hit off a tee. He also did baserunning and outfield work as he works back from breaking his right wrist July 26. He will continue a similar rehab regimen through the weekend. “Another positive step forward,” manager Aaron Boone said. “He’s building a little bit of momentum.” … SS Didi Gregorius, sidelined with a bruised left heel he hurt Aug. 19 in a collision with Toronto’s Kendrys Morales beating out an infield single, had another good day of baseball activity and the plan is to activate him Friday at Seattle. “In a lot of ways he’s one of the heartbeats of this club,” Boone said. … OF Clint Frazier is unlikely to play again this season as he continues to deal with concussion symptoms. He was examined by renowned specialist Dr. Micky Collins at the University of Pittsburgh on Tuesday and Frazier returned to Tampa, Florida. … 3B Miguel Andujar had the night off to give him a two-day break with no game Thursday.Athletics: LHP Brett Anderson (strained forearm) threw off a mound and will throw an extended bullpen Saturday during which he gets up and sits down three times while throwing about 15 pitches each session. If all goes well he could be activated to make a start on the next road trip beginning Tuesday at Baltimore.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka (10-5, 3.83 ERA) takes the mound in Friday’s series opener at Seattle with an extra day of rest. He is 6-0 with a 2.34 ERA in seven career starts against the Mariners and 3-0 with a 2.17 ERA in four outings at Safeco Field.Athletics: Following Thursday’s off day, RHP Chris Bassitt (2-3 Brandin Cooks Jersey Elite , 3.19) pitches the opener of a weekend series at home against Texas. WASHINGTON (AP) — Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo indicated during a session with reporters Wednesday that first-year manager Dave Martinez will return next season.“I haven’t considered any other scenario,” Rizzo responded when asked if Martinez would be back.The Nationals, expected to contend for a third straight NL East title, entered Wednesday with a 69-70 record, 7 1/2 games behind Atlanta in the East and eight games back in the wild card.In addition to injuries to players including Daniel Murphy, Ryan Zimmerman, Stephen Strasburg and Sean Doolittle, Martinez’s work as a rookie skipper has come under scrutiny.“I think Davey’s doing a great job in managing this team,” Rizzo said. “He’s managed them through a lot of trials and tribulations that a lot of first-year managers haven’t had to go through, and to have a team playing with the exuberance and energy level that they’re playing at at this point I think is a testament to Davey and the staff and the way that they feel about him in the clubhouse.”The 53-year-old Martinez was the Chicago Cubs bench coach before he signed a three-year contract with the Nationals in October 2017. Martinez replaced veteran manager Dusty Baker … oks-jersey , who went 192-132 in two seasons with Washington, but was unable to win a postseason series either year.This year’s team was 33-22 after winning their sixth straight game on May 30. They haven’t won as many as four in a row since. Both the Braves and second-place Philadelphia have played sub-.500 baseball since Aug. 15, but the Nationals have failed to make a big move, going 9-9.“We thought all along we had a chance to catch those teams,” Rizzo said, “and if we played the way we’re supposed to be playing that we’d have an opportunity to make this a race and it’s frustrating that we haven’t put anything together to really push them to the limits that we thought we should.”The Nationals stood pat at the July trade deadline and Rizzo expressed confidence in the team as constituted, but a run did not materialize and the team has since traded away a number of veterans, among them Murphy, Matt Adams, Ryan Madson and Gio Gonzalez Authentic Robert Woods Jersey , saving significant payroll dollars.Outfielder Bryce Harper, who entered Wednesday with 31 homers and 89 RBIs, will be a free agent after this season and third baseman Anthony Rendon’s turn will come after next season.“If we have or we haven’t, we’re certainly not going to discuss it in this venue,” Rizzo said when asked if he’s made an effort to sign the pair to long-term contracts. “Suffice it to say both of those guys are near and dear to our heart and we’d love to have them long-term.”
