Marlins star Stanton leaves with bruised wrist, hit by pitch

Marlins star Stanton leaves with bruised wrist, hit by pitch

Neverauskas became the first Lithuanian-born pitcher to appear in a major league game April 24 when he worked one inning against the Chicago Cubs. Stanton labored to first base before outfielder Ichiro Suzuki replaced him. The Marlins have a day off on Monday before facing Oakland in Miami on Tuesday.

Miami Marlins catcher A.J. Ellis is in the lineup on Friday versus the Pittsburgh Pirates.

"It seems like it was OK", Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.

Giancarlo Stanton bashed his 16th home run in Friday's win and the Marlins continued to get contributions from other sources on offense, with Tyler Moore knocking a pair of home runs in the win to improve to 7-for-12 with six RBIs in the last three contests. Juan Nicasio got two outs in the eighth, and Felipe Rivero got four outs for the save - his first with the Pirates and the fourth of his career. He also did not say whether there would be a definitive closer moving forward.

One thing Hurdle did admit is that he's confident in his group heading into Sunday after the win Saturday. Mattingly said he'd like Ellington to focus on throwing more strikes and likes Steckenrider's ability to go multiple innings.

And front and centre, as he always is when the Cavs are doing special things, was LeBron James , the best player in the world. Four players-Green, Klay Thompson , Curry and Andre Iguodala-were whistled for two fouls in the first quarter.


Before those two losses, Nova had won his previous three starts.

Dee Gordon went 3 for 5 with two doubles as the Marlins posted a season high in runs behind 18 hits. Though he managed to not walk a batter for just the second time in 12 starts this season, he's now given up 12 home runs in 54 1/3 innings.

Worley spent two seasons with the Pirates, helping Pittsburgh make consecutive playoff appearances in 2014 and 2015 while bouncing between the bullpen and the rotation. Miami are 9-2 in the last 11 meetings and the under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Pittsburgh.

He was 35-38 with a 4.41 ERA in 123 career games (110 starts) with the Pirates.
