TORONTO (AP) —ory Sunday.The Blue Jays slugger homered in a franchise-record seventh consecutive game in Toronto’s 8-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.Morales is the seventh player in major league history to have a streak this long. He’s one short of matching the record held by Ken Griffey Jr. http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , Dale Long and Don Mattingly.Morales will try to match that trio when he faces Baltimore’s David Hess on Monday night. Morales has already connected off Hess in his current streak, hitting a solo home run off the Orioles right-hander in a 6-0 Toronto win last Wednesday.“It’s pretty impressive,” manager John Gibbons said of Morales’ streak. “It’d be something if he gets (the record). I don’t think any of us can comprehend how hard it is to do.”Morales said staying quiet at the plate has helped his power surge.“I’m not moving too much,” he said through a translator. “Either fastball or off-speed, I’m seeing the ball pretty well because I’m sitting back “Morales said the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY, has requested one of his bats from the streak.“I’m really happy they want my bat,” Morales said. “It’s amazing what I’ve been doing.”He has 21 homers on the season and has hit safely in 10 straight games. He’s batting .500 (17 for 34) with eight homers and 15 RBI in that stretch.The Phillies went on their own homer binge, connecting for four on Sunday.Rhys Hoskins and Carlos Santana went back-to-back in the first inning while Maikel Franco and Wilson Ramos each had two-run shots.“There was a noticeable energy change in the dugout from yesterday to today,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. “Our guys sensed the urgency of today’s game.”Right-hander Vince Velasquez (9-9) allowed two runs and three hits in five innings for the victory as Philadelphia won for the second time in eight games, erasing the painful memories of Saturday’s 8-6 defeat. The Phillies began the day three games behind Atlanta in the NL East, and two games out in the wild card race.“Everybody was just a little bit more intense, a little bit sharper focus Julio Teheran Jersey ,” Hoksins said. “Everybody got here this morning and realized that this was a big game. Obviously they’re all big but this one in particular felt a little bit bigger, especially after a tough loss yesterday.”Ramos had four hits. He singled in the first, doubled home a run in the second, singled in the sixth and homered off Tyler Clippard in the eighth, his 15th.“The guy is raking,” Velasquez said. “He’s on fire.”Luis Garcia, Hector Neris, Tommy Hunter, and Seranthony Dominguez each pitched one inning of relief.Hoskins reached base four times as the Phillies ended Toronto’s season-long winning streak at five.“We swung the bats from the very beginning of the game and stayed on them, never took our foot off the gas pedal,” Kapler said.Estrada (7-10) allowed five runs and seven hits in two-plus innings. He said afterward he has been bothered by a sore back for several few weeks.TULO TALKS 2019One day after he was ruled out for the season, Troy Tulowitzki said he intends to reclaim his role as Toronto’s starting shortstop next year. “If someone’s better than me, I’ll pack my bags and go home http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey ,” said Tulowitzki, who had surgery in April to remove bone spurs from both heels. The oft-injured Tulowitzki has not played since July 2017, when he seriously injured his right ankle in a collision at first base. The five-time All-Star has missed at least 30 games in seven straight seasons and eight of the past nine.TRAINER’S ROOMPhillies: OF Roman Quinn (sore left hamstring) was not available. Quinn’s injury is not considered serious.Blue Jays: 3B Josh Donaldson (strained left calf) had the contents of his locker in Toronto delivered to him at the team’s spring training facility in Dunedin, Fla., where he is working out. In a statement, Donaldson said he wanted all his equipment on hand before starting a rehab assignment. Donaldson has been out since May 28.UP NEXTPhillies: RHP Zach Eflin (9-4, 3.93) starts as Philadelphia returns home to begin a three-game series against Wahsington. RHP Stephen Strasburg (6-7, 4.23) starts for the Nationals.Blue Jays: RHP Sam Gaviglio (3-6, 4.94) starts the opener of a three-game series at Baltimore. Gaviglio snapped a 5-start winless streak by beating Baltimore last Tuesday. Hess is 2-8 with a 5.50 ERA. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Yankees slugger Luke Voit showed last season what an unproven player can gain when injuries create opportunities for playing time.With New York depleted almost beyond recognition, Mike Ford and the rest of this year’s injury replacements are seizing their moment.Voit homered twice and Ford went deep for the first time in the majors to lead New York over the Los Angeles Angels 7-5 Tuesday night. The Yankees have won five straight and seven of their last eight despite having 13 players on the injured list.“It’s fun. Guys are stepping up in big-time roles,” said Voit, who got his third multihomer game and extended his hitting streak to 10. “A lot of guys are going to be coming back and players are going to be going up and down David Justice Jersey , but there’s always a chance to make a name for yourself now.”Voit has reached base in 34 straight games and has 20 home runs in 55 games dating back to Aug. 24, which leads the American League. He was stuck with St. Louis’ Triple-A affiliate last season before being traded to the Yankees, who needed a big bat with injuries to slugger Aaron Judge and others. They found it in Voit, a beefy slugger who has become a lineup regular.He opened the scoring with a solo shot in the first inning for the second straight game, and then added another in the eighth to make it 7-1.Ford, called up for the first time last week, hit a two-run shot in the fifth off starter Chris Stratton (0-2). Brett Gardner had four hits, his second game with three or more, and was a home run shy of hitting for the cycle.Domingo Germán (4-1) allowed an unearned run and four hits in 6 2/3 innings. It is the second time in four starts the right-hander has not given up an earned run.“Everyone feels like they are contributing and that’s been the case,” manager Aaron Boone said. “When you are beat up and feeling adversity you need everyone to pull their weight. I think that has been one of the common themes over the past week.”Los Angeles’ Justin Bour hit a grand slam off Chad Green in the eighth, but Zack Britton pitched the ninth for his first save.Brian Goodwin and David Fletcher each had two hits for the Angels, who have dropped five of six on their current homestand. Stratton failed to retire the Yankees in order in any inning and allowed four runs and nine hits in five innings.“It would be nice to be jump on a team early, but it’s a good sign they’re not giving up. They’re fighting http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey ,” Angels manager Brad Ausmus said. “We’re missing a couple big pieces of our offense so I’m not concerned about it. The pitching is like we said all along. If we can get our starters through the first half of a game, we feel like we have a strong bullpen that can hold any lead.”GREEN STRUGGLINGGreen had been a most reliable piece in New York’s bullpen the past two seasons, but his ERA this year is 16.43.Boone said Green is fine physically but that he continues to struggle with finishing off hitters.“I’m not executing where I need to and that’s the bottom line. It has been really bad so far,” Green said.BOUR’S BIG HITBour has got off to a slow start in his first season with the Angels. He came into the game batting .200, but is hoping that his fourth career grand slam can help him bounce back.“Obviously I haven’t gotten off to a hot start here, and Angels fans have let me know it, so it was good to put a good swing on it. I’m glad some results are showing,” said Bour, who raised his average to .203.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: C Gary Sanchez (left calf strain) rejoined the team on Tuesday and is expected to be activated off the injured list on Wednesday. Sanchez is hitting .268 and is tied for the team lead in home runs with six.Angels: OF Justin Upton (turf toe) has been moved to the 60-day injured list. Ausmus said Upton is out of his walking boot but has not started jogging yet. … P Tyler Skaggs (ankle) had a bullpen session and could be ready to rejoin the rotation by the weekend.UP NEXTCC Sabathia (1-0, 0.00 ERA) needs six strikeouts to become the third left-hander and 17th pitcher in MLB history to reach 3,000 for his career. RHP Felix Peña (0-1, 4.15) takes the hill for the Angels and makes his first start against the Yankees.
