Travis Jankowski tries to have a short memory when it comes to setbacks. That approach helped the San Diego Padres on Saturday.
An inning after striking out with a runner in scoring position, Jankowski hit a go-ahead bases-loaded single in the eighth to lift the Padres over the Miami Marlins 5-4.
Jankowski hit a line drive with two outs off reliever Drew Rucinski (1-1) that scored Hunter Renfroe, who had reached on a pinch-hit two-out double and advanced following walks to Raffy Lopez and Matt Szczur.
Our guys kept coming, Miami manager Don Mattingly said. It was one of those games where everybody kept hanging in there and we felt like we had a chance to win.
Mariners RF Ben Gamel made diving catches on balls hit by Cron (fifth inning) and Ramos (sixth).

Rays: Tampa Bay decided to have LHP Ryan Yarbrough (4-2) start instead of using a bullpen day Monday night against Toronto RHP Sam Gaviglio (2-1).Chapman’s homer in 8th http://www.officialchiefsfootballshop.com/Tyreek-Hill-Jersey.html lifts A’s past Royals 3-2

Auburn pitcher Casey Mize, the top pick in Major League Baseball’s first-year player draft, is considered close to big-league-ready by many of the scouts who have watched him dominate Southeastern Conference hitters the past two years. Now that the Detroit Tigers selected Tyreek Hill Jersey him at No. 1 overall, he won’t require much of an apprenticeship in Lakeland, Erie or Authentic Andy Dalton Jersey Toledo.
Mize shows versatility http://www.officialbengalsfootballproshop.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_ANDY_DALTON_JERSEY.html and imagination with a mix of four pitches, and his dazzling strikeout-to-walk ratio is a testament to his command of all of them. But it’s his self-control along with his ability to control a baseball that takes him to a different level.
