|SAN FRANCISCO — A beanball war between the Miami Marlins and San Francisco Giants has the potential to spill over into Wednesday’s series finale http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-roquan-smith-jersey , with neither manager saying the book was closed after there were three hit batsmen and two ejections Tuesday night.
The ball will be in the hands of Marlins right-hander Jose Urena (2-8, 4.18 ERA) and Giants lefty Derek Holland (4-7, 4.4, with each team needing a victory to win the series after splitting a pair of emotional affairs the last two nights.
The Giants avenged Monday’s 5-4 loss with a 6-3 victory on Tuesday that featured Buster Posey hitting a home run and then getting hit by a pitch in his next at-bat.
It was exactly what Marlins manager Don Mattingly had promised when, in the top of the inning, he complained that both teams — not just the Giants — had received a warning when San Francisco starter Dereck Rodriguez hit Lewis Brinson with a pitch.
After a heated exchange with the umpires, Mattingly could be seen telling Posey, “You’re next.” Giants manager Bruce Bochy then jumped out of the dugout, having heard Mattingly tell the umpires, “If not tonight, then tomorrow.”
“I guess they thought they had to do something,” Bochy said of the Marlins, whose three-run, ninth-inning rally on Monday night included a key hit by Brinson, who celebrated by yelling at Giants closer Hunter Strickland on his way to first base.
On his way to the dugout after recording his fourth blown save later in the inning, Strickland walked near Brinson and the two exchanged words again.
Moments later, the emotional Strickland punched a door leading to the Giants’ clubhouse, breaking his right hand. He is expected to be out 6-8 weeks.
The Giants suffered a similar injury last week in Miami when third baseman Evan Longoria broke a finger when hit by a pitch.
Despite the warning and already down 3-0, Marlins starter Dan Straily hit Posey in the left shoulder in the bottom of the second inning http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-anthony-miller-jersey , resulting in the ejection of both Straily and Mattingly.
The feisty Marlins manager was seen patting Straily on the back as both headed down the runway toward the clubhouse after the ejections.
“There’s some fuzzy math going on,” Bochy said when asked if he thought Straily’s retaliation evened the score for the Giants plunking Brinson. “I’ve got a third baseman out 6-8 weeks. And I got a guy (Kelby Tomlinson) hit in the back (Monday) night.”
The veteran Giants skipper went on to say anything’s possible in the series finale.
“We’re men,” he boasted. “This happens in baseball. It won’t be the last time.”
Intention or no intention, the Marlins’ Urena has been troubled by hit batsmen this season, having already plunked eight batters, tied for the fifth-most in the majors.
He has faced the Giants three times in his career, twice as a starter, and has gone 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA.
The Giants’ Holland, on the other hand, is about as unlikely to hit a batter as any pitcher in the game. He has plunked just one of the 306 guys he has faced this season.
Holland has pitched just once in his career against the Marlins, and it was a disaster. Facing a lineup that included Hanley Ramirez and Giancarlo Stanton, Holland gave up five runs and four hits in two-thirds of an inning while pitching for Texas in 2011.
Aksel Lund Svindal made a triumphant return to the hill where a downhill crash almost ended his career two years ago.
In the opening event of the 78th Hahnenkamm races, the 2010 Olympic super-G champion led a Norwegian 1-2 finish ahead of Kjetil Jansrud on Friday in the last World Cup race in the discipline before the Pyeongchang Games.
It was Svindal’s 16th career super-G victory but first since winning in Kitzbuehel in 2016, a day before he badly injured his right knee. He was thrown off the course, landed in the safety netting on the Streif and underwent surgery for a ruptured ACL and damaged meniscus. Months later, he said the injury had nearly forced him into retirement.
On Friday, Svindal dominated the super-G, which was delayed and moved to a different course higher up the hill because overnight snow and rain affected the lower part of the original course. The move meant the race included even more sections of the downhill course than usual.
Thousands of spectators followed the race on large video screens because the finish was out of sight.
”This is definitely something special. It was a special race with the finish high up on the hill,” said Svindal http://www.texansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-justin-reid-jersey , who beat Jansrud by 0.50 seconds. ”Everyone was a bit nervous as we were not sure what to expect.”
Austrian teammates Matthias Mayer and Hannes Reichelt were third and fourth, 0.56 and 0.57 behind, respectively.
Josef Ferstl of Germany, who won the previous super-G in Val Gardena, Italy, last month, was 1.71 behind in 18th.
It was Svindal’s 35th career win, and 30th in a speed event, trailing only Austrian standout Hermann Maier’s total of 39 downhill and super-G wins.
Svindal, who will aim for his first downhill win in Kitzbuehel in Saturday’s race, finished in the top 10 of all three previous super-G races this season but had not reached the podium.
Still hampered by knee problems, Svindal believed his reduced training schedule affected his super-G form.
”In downhill you have training runs which give you more confidence,” he said. ”The downhill tomorrow will be very exciting but the weekend couldn’t have started better.”
Winning the last super-G before the Olympics does not make Svindal an obvious favorite for the Feb. 15 race in Jeongseon, South Korea. Only once did the winner of the last World Cup race also take the Olympic super-G title – in 1998 when Maier achieved the feat.
The result closed the gap in the super-G standings between Svindal and leader Jansrud to 46 points, with Vincent Kriechmayr another 14 points back in third place. The Austrian trailed Svindal by 1.29 seconds in 10th place on Friday.
Jansrud called the race ”a difficult super-G for all.”
”No one had experience on this course,” the 2014 Olympic super-G champion said. ”Aksel and I raced really well. Two moose on the podium, that makes us happy.”
After days of snow and rain, the weather was expected to improve for Saturday’s downhill.
