A couple more games like Friday night should help out a lot.Altherr homered twice and drove in five runs Alex Gordon Jersey , leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 14-2 victory over the Miami Marlins.The 27-year-old Altherr was expected to be a regular contributor for Philadelphia after he had 19 homers and 65 RBIs in 107 games last season. But the outfielder struggled with his swing all spring and was sent down to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on July 22 after hitting just .171 with six homers.Altherr connected for a two-run shot in the second for his first homer since June 6. He added a three-run drive in the fifth and finished with four hits.“I didn’t make any mechanical adjustments, didn’t think about anything like that,” Altherr said. “Just confidence was the biggest thing. I feel whenever you’re confident up there at the plate, good things are going to happen.”Roman Quinn, Rhys Hoskins and Mitch Walding also connected for the Phillies, who snapped a five-game losing streak.Philadelphia stayed 7 1/2 games back of NL East-leading Atlanta, which beat Washington 10-5 for its sixth straight win. The Phillies were in prime position to make the postseason before stumbling in recent weeks.Zach Eflin (10-7) pitched 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball in his first win since Aug. 16. The right-hander was 0-3 with an 8.64 ERA in his last four appearances.Eflin utilized his four-seam fastball more against the Marlins than in recent outings.“You see how brilliant he can be,” manager Gabe Kapler said.J.T. Realmuto homered for Miami, which dropped its fourth straight. Wei-Yin Chen (6-11) was tagged for five runs and seven hits in four innings.Quinn finished with two hits and three RBIs after being sidelined by a small fracture in his right foot. He hit a solo drive in the second and drove in two runs with a bases-loaded fielder’s choice in the fourth.Chen struck out four and walked two in another slugging performance on the road. The left-hander is 5-3 with a 1.77 ERA in 12 home starts http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , but just 1-8 with a 9.29 ERA in 12 road starts.“I guess I probably need to do some more homework for the games on the road,” Chen said. “Maybe that’s what I need to do.”DROUGHT’S OVERAfter going 0 for 14 with 10 strikeouts, Walding recorded his first career hit when he homered off catcher Bryan Holaday in the ninth.“I was speechless,” Walding said. “Probably one of the happiest moments I’ve ever had in my life. “It was very special and something, obviously, I’ll never forget the rest of my life.”HOMER HAPPYRealmuto’s homer was his 21st of the season — and 18th when he is in the lineup as a catcher. He’s one shy of matching the Marlins record for homers by a catcher in a season; Charles Johnson had 19 in games where he was behind the plate in 1997.TRAINER’S ROOMMarlins: Rookie OF Austin Dean returned to the lineup after missing both games of Thursday’s doubleheader against the Mets due to illness. Dean went 2 for 4.UP NEXTRHP Vince Velasquez (9-11, 4.30) goes for Philadelphia on Saturday night in the second of a three-game set against the Marlins, who will be using a bevy of relievers. TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Aaron Judge and Brett Gardner think the Yankees can break the major league season record of 267 home runs that New York set last season“Get this whole team healthy Mike Moustakas Jersey , we’re going to crush the record that we set last year,” Judge said.New York broke the previous mark of 264 by the 1997 Seattle Mariners despite injuries that limited Judge to 112 games, Gary Sanchez to 89 and Greg Bird to 82.“I just think that we’re capable of doing better than we were last year overall as an offense,” Gardner said.Judge, slowed by a right wrist injury last season, and Gardner each hit two homers in Sunday’s 7-1 win over the Detroit Tigers.Judge came to camp after a normal offseason. He was slowed slightly at the start of spring training last year following left shoulder surgery.“Just working on my swing. Last year I didn’t get a chance to do that at all,” Judge said. “I’m just trying to have a healthy season. Then we’ll see where the numbers are at.”Judge hit 27 homers last season and Giancarlo Stanton led the Yankees with 38 in the first season after he was acquired Miami. Stanton led the major leagues with 59 homers in 2017, when Judge topped the AL with 52.However, Didi Gregorius is expected to be sidelined until summer following Tommy John surgery last October. He hit a career-high 27 home runs last year; his replacement Salvador Perez Jersey , Troy Tulowitzki, hasn’t played since 2017.Bird is completing to regain his first-base job from Luke Voit, who hit 14 homers in 39 games after he was obtained from St. Louis.“I think we have a nice balance both offensively and defensively,” general manager Brian Cashman said. “But got a long way to go. It’s too early to get excited about anything, obviously, other than the fact that we feel like the collection of talent we have, you can see that talent on display.”New York bypassed free agents Manny Machado and Bryce Harper, instead adding Tulowitzki, left-hander James Paxton http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , reliever Adam Ottavino and infielder DJ LeMahieu while re-signing pitchers CC Sabathia, J.A. Happ and Zack Britton along with Gardner.“I’m closing the chapter on these questions about high-end free agents from the winter time,” Cashman said. “I’d rather focus on the here and now, and the real rather than unreal.”
