MIAMI (AP) — The Yankees won Giancarlo Stanton’s homecoming game but may have lost their closer.Aroldis Chapman left the game with pain in his troublesome left knee Trevor Cahill Jersey , and New York scrambled to close out a 2-1 win over the Marlins in 12 innings Tuesday night.Stanton, playing in Miami for the first time since he was traded after eight seasons with the Marlins, received a warm reception from the crowd and missed his 300th career homer by a few feet.After Yankees backup catcher Kyle Higashioka raced home on a sacrifice fly in the 12th, Chapman came on to try for his 32nd save. He walked Isaac Galloway leading off, threw a wild 96 mph fastball to the next batter and signaled to the dugout.After consulting with a trainer, Chapman departed. He said he felt pain in the same spot as in the past, but worse than before. He averaged 96 mph on his fastball, his lowest for any outing since 2013, according to ESPN Stats & Info.“Previously I’ve been able to pitch with it, to manage it,” the Cuban said through a translator. “The discomfort is constant.”Tommy Kahnle came on to earn his first save since 2016. Higashioka threw out Galloway trying to steal second to end the game.Chapman will likely undergo an MRI to diagnosis his ailment, manager Aaron Boone said.“Virtually every other time he has been able to work through it,” Boone said. “For him to call attention to it Melky Cabrera Jersey , that has me concerned.”The Marlins had runners at the corners with none out in the ninth, and loaded the bases with none out in the 11th, but both times failed to score. Chad Green and A.J. Cole (3-0) pitched out of the jams.The Yankees (79-46) won their fourth game in a row to climb 33 games above .500 for the first time since 2011.When Stanton stepped to the plate in the first inning and received a loud ovation from the crowd of 26,275, he saluted, waved and patted his chest while looking toward the stands.“That was really cool — definitely more than I could ask for,” Stanton said. “That’s going to be one of the more special moments of my career.”He then singled sharply to left field. A brief scoreboard tribute to Stanton in the second inning prompted more cheers while he stood in right field, and he waved his cap.Stanton barely missed a homer when he doubled off the left field wall in the fifth. He also struck out three times and grounded out to remain at 299 career homers.Higashioka entered the game in an 11th-inning double switch and led off the 12th with a single against Javy Guerra (1-1). After the Yanks loaded the bases, Miguel Andujar hit a flyout to left field, and Higashioka slid home ahead of the throw.The Yankees played without shortstop Didi Gregorius, who went on the 10-day disabled list with a bruised left heel. That left the Yankees without three injured regulars, and the depleted lineup managed only three hits in the final eight innings.“It’s not easy for us right now,” Boone said. “We’re going through a tough stretch. But that’s also an opportunity for guys to step up.”Gleyber Torres contributed two hits starting at short for Gregorius. Greg Bird went 0 for 6 with three strikeouts and drew boos from the many Yankees fans in the crowd.Neil Walker’s RBI single in the fourth put New York ahead. Austin Dean homered for the Marlins in the fifth.New York’s Masahiro Tanaka and Miami’s Pablo Lopez each allowed one run in six innings.Seven Yankees relievers combined for six scoreless innings. Miami went 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position.“The execution in those situations — I think some of that is lack of experience http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey ,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.HEATMarlins right-hander Tayron Guerrero threw 14 pitches at 100 mph or more in the seventh, when he struck out the side.CLOSE CALLStanding on deck, Miami’s Derek Dietrich had to duck out of the way when teammate Brian Anderson sent the bat sailing toward his head after a swing and missed.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: RHP David Robertson sat out because of tenderness in his throwing shoulder. He said he expects to be available Wednesday. … C Gary Sanchez (groin) is expected to begin a rehab assignment Thursday in the Gulf Coast League, and then go to Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes-Barre for about a week of games.UP NEXTYankees RHP Lance Lynn (8-8, 4.68) is scheduled to start the series finale Wednesday night against RHP Trevor Richards (3-7, 4.28). PHOENIX (AP) — The young Clay Buchholz used the scouting report merely as a suggestion.He glanced at it, made a couple of mental notes, but basically threw whatever pitch was working or felt right in the situation. His stuff was that good.The veteran Clay Buchholz relies on the scouting report much more. His stuff not quite as electric, the right-hander has to use his mind and his arm to get hitters out.It’s certainly working. Following a series of injury-plagued seasons, Buchholz has used a more targeted approach to revitalize his career and become a key cog in the Arizona Diamondbacks‘ push to a second straight playoff appearance.“I try to pitch to hitters’ weaknesses a lot more than I used to,” Buchholz said. “I’ve gotten a lot better at knowing what part of the scouting report I can (use) and what I can do with it, rather than taking it all in and forgetting some of it and being unsure. I have a lot of other eyes on the whole scenario for me, too.”Buchholz has arguably been Arizona’s best pitcher since signing with the Diamondbacks on May 5 Ian Kinsler Jersey , going 7-2 with a 2.25 ERA in 13 starts. He tossed seven scoreless innings to beat the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday, a start after finishing off the San Diego Padres for his 10th career complete game.The right-hander has been at his best as the NL West-leading Diamondbacks hit the stretch run of the season. Buchholz has won six of his past seven starts and has an eight-game streak of pitching at least five innings and allowing three runs or less.“I think Clay has finally gotten to a point in his career where he’s realized the type of pitcher he needs to be,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. “I see it happening every single outing. I see him adapting to a game plan and I see him making adjustments to hitters in different ways. For me, that’s the definition of mental toughness in a pitcher.”Buchholz has needed it.He burst onto the baseball scene in 2007, tossing a no-hitter for the Boston Red Sox in his second career start. Buchholz made it through two more starts his rookie season before being shut down for shoulder fatigue. That began a string of injuries, including a pulled hamstring after making the All-Star team in 2010, a stress fracture in 2011, a knee injury in 2014.Buchholz then suffered an elbow injury in 2015 that bothered him over the next two years before forearm surgery cost him most of the 2017 season with Philadelphia. He ended up signing a minor-league deal with Kansas City this year, but the Royals wanted to go young and kept him in Triple-A Omaha, so he opted out of the contract.His future uncertain, Buchholz signed with the Diamondbacks, believing he could contribute but not knowing exactly what to expect.“I feel like I have a lot pitches left in me,” the 34-year-old said. “I’ve been hurt a lot and haven’t thrown as many pitches as a normal 10-year major league guy. The way I look at it Albert Pujols Jersey , I feel good right now so sort of proving to myself I was right then going out there and working.”Early in his career, Buchholz dominated hitters with a fastball that hit 96 mph. The velocity isn’t quite the same — it’s still in the low 90s — but Buchholz has made up for it by learning hitters’ tendencies, mixing his pitches and locations. He also has leaned on pitching strategist Dan Haren, a former big-league pitcher, and Arizona’s catchers to game plan against opposing hitters.“At times, when I knew him as a younger pitcher, the tempo might not have been as good,” said Lovullo, Boston’s bench coach during Buchholz’s time there. “He’s doing a really good job with three pitches, three-plus pitches, and he’s on a great run right now full of confidence.”Buchholz’s run has the Diamondbacks running toward a playoff berth.
