MIAMI (AP) — Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly sat in the dugout contemplating his team’s role of spoiler a couple of hours before the start of a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies Satchel Paige Jersey , whose playoff hopes are fading with a late-season swoon.“They’re probably feeling like they’ve got to win every game,” Mattingly said.Instead, the Phillies are doing the opposite. They lost their third in a row Monday, managing only four hits and no walks against Jose Urena and two relievers, and the last-place Marlins won 3-1.The Phillies remained four games behind first-place Atlanta in the NL East and are 9-17 since Aug. 6, when the led the division. They’ve scored five runs in the past four games.“I don’t think we’re running out of time,” manager Gabe Kapler said. “We have a ton of confidence. This is not the last day of the season.”It’s true the Phillies aren’t out of the division race, because they face Atlanta in seven of their final 11 games. But the loss to the Marlins doesn’t help.“We have plenty of time to put together a really strong run,” Kapler said. “If we get hot, and I believe we can and will, we’ll rattle off enough wins to be right where we need to be when we start that series with Atlanta.”Urena (5-12) gave up one run in seven innings. He struck out seven to increase his season total to 117, a career high.Drew Steckenrider pitched a perfect ninth with two strikeouts for his third save. Vince Velasquez (9-10) allowed three runs in five innings.“This is a month where we’ve got to bear down, and I think we’re capable of that,” Velasquez said. “I think there’s a turning point somewhere, and I think we’ll find it soon — probably tomorrow.” Asdrubal Cabrera hit his 22nd homer Joe Carter Jersey , but that was it for the Phillies’ scoring. Their offensive slump is such that Kapler pinch-hit for Velasquez even though he had thrown only 73 pitches, because the score was 3-1 in the sixth.“When we have to score runs, we have to score runs,” Kapler said.Derek Dietrich’s triple started a three-run second inning for the Marlins. Left fielder Rafael Ortega had a two-run single and made a backhanded catch on the warning track to rob Carlos Santana of a run-scoring extra-base hit.“Seems like it was the hardest ball Santana hit all year,” Kapler said. “It didn’t bounce in our direction today.”The retractable roof at Marlins Park was closed as Tropical Storm Gordon passed through South Florida. Attendance was 7,771.MIXED RESULTSMiami rookie Lewis Brinson had two hits and an RBI.“We had a good plan against a good pitcher,” he said.Brinson is 5 for 11 since returning from the DL, hiking his average to .196. But he was doubled off first on a routine flyout in the seventh.ROSTER MOVESBefore the game, the Phillies activated RHP Jerad Eickhoff from the 60-day DL, and RHP Ben Lively was designated for assignment.TRAINER’S ROOMPhils INF Maikel Franco (right wrist) sat out after undergoing X-rays, which were negative. He said it’s unlikely he’ll play Tuesday. “When I squeeze my hand I feel a little bit of pain,” he said, “and when I hit the ball there’s a lot of pain.”UP NEXTRHP Jake Arrieta (9-9, 3.54) is scheduled to start Tuesday for the Phils against RHP Trevor Richards (3-7, 4.26). BOSTON (AP) — The AL wild-card game will be in the Bronx Francisco Lindor Jersey , where the New York Yankees bats have always felt at home.The Yankees cleared the Fenway fences four times on Friday night to tie the major league single-season home run record, clinching home-field advantage for the upcoming one-game playoff against Oakland with a 11-6 victory over the Boston Red Sox.The win in the opener of the three-game series settled the AL’s last remaining postseason question with two games to go. The Yankees will host the Athletics on Wednesday for the right to play Boston in the divisional round.“That’s an exhale right there, for the moment,” New York manager Aaron Boone said. “Now we can start working on getting ready as best as we can for that Wednesday game. It’s nice to finish that off.”The Red Sox, who clinched the best record in baseball with a franchise-record 107 wins, were hoping to make things difficult for their archrivals — and the A’s, too — by forcing the winner of the wild-card game to fly cross-country next week. The ALDS begins in Boston on Friday.Instead, the Yankees will sleep in their own beds, and play in the park where they were 53-28 while hitting 144 home runs.“It’s not the end-all, be-all by any means,” Boone said. “But when push comes to shove you want to be at home.”Reigning Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge hit his first homer since coming off the disabled list Sept. 14, and Gary Sanchez, Aaron Hicks and Luke Voit also homered to give the Yankees 264 home runs for the season. That matches the mark set by the 1997 Seattle Mariners.AUDITIONSJ.A. Happ (17-6) pitched three perfect innings and allowed just one hit through five. Staked to an 8-0 lead, he loaded the bases in the sixth for Steve Pearce’s grand slam but got Rafael Devers on a groundout to end the inning.In all, Happ allowed four runs on four hits and two walks Corey Kluber Jersey , striking out seven in six innings. He would be on regular rest for the wild-card game.“I’d love to get the nod,” he said. “But I think we’re going to feel good with whoever is out there.”LONG BALLSSanchez homered to lead off the third, just his second homer and fourth hit of any kind in two weeks. Hicks hit a three-run shot in New York’s six-run fourth. Voit hit a solo shot in the seventh and Judge hit his 27th of the year in the eighth to make it 11-4.Boone said he wouldn’t have expected to set home run records in a season without Judge and Giancarlo Stanton hitting 50 apiece. Judge battled injuries after hitting 52 as a rookie; Stanton dropped from 59 to 37.Twelve players hit 10 or more homers and six topped 20.“We’re getting a lot of production from a lot of guys,” Boone said.LATE THREATBoston scored once and loaded the bases in the bottom of the eighth against Dellin Betances, but Eduardo Nunez lined out to second to end it. The Red Sox loaded the bases in the ninth before Zach Britton walked Xander Bogaerts to score a run and cut the deficit to 11-6.But Pearce grounded out on a 3-2 pitch to third base to end it, giving the Yankees their 99th win.“I loved the way we fought,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “Got to Betances; got to Britton. We had the big inning against Happ.”PASSING THE MESSAGEPearce is 6 for 32 with six homers against Happ in his career. Asked why he’s struggled so much to keep Pearce in the park, Happ said with a smile, “I don’t know, why don’t you go over there and ask him why it’s so easy for him. I’d like to know what he says.”(When that was relayed to Pearce, he also smiled and said, “It’s not easy. He’s a good pitcher.”)FOR THE RECORDRed Sox left-hander Brian Johnson (4-5) allowed two runs in three innings and left with a 2-0 deficit. William Cuevas came out to start the fourth and gave up six runs on six hits and a walk while getting just one out.DOUBLING UPMiguel Andujar’s fourth-inning double was his 44th of the season, tying Joe DiMaggio for the record by a Yankees rookie.Second base umpire Andy Fletcher appeared to hurt his calf while calling Andujar safe on the play. The game was completed using three umpires. According to Major League Baseball, Fletcher sustained a muscular injury and will need further evaluation but will likely be replaced for the rest of the series.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: SS Didi Grigorius returned to the lineup for the first time since Saturday because of torn cartilage in his right wrist. Hicks also returned to the lineup; he missed two games with tightness in his left hamstring.UP NEXTRHP Lance Lynn (9-10) is scheduled to face RHP Nathan Eovaldi.
