ATLANTA — Aaron Nola’s pitching has taken a downturn this month http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , mirroring the struggles of the Philadelphia Phillies.Nola, though, still has at least a chance to earn some National League Cy Young Award votes while his team plays out the string.The Atlanta Braves clinched the NL East title Saturday with a third straight victory over Philadelphia at SunTrust Park, this time 5-3, and Nola won’t get a chance to keep the Phillies alive when he takes the mound in Sunday’s series finale.Article continues below ...The Braves (87-68) took advantage of the 6-14 swoon in September by the Phillies (78-76) to clinch with more than a week left in the regular season after losing at least 90 games each of the past three seasons during the rebuild.“It’s been a grind, but this makes it all worth it,” Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman said of the team’s first division title since 2013. “We put it all together this season and it is fantastic.“We all knew we had this in us. We just needed to see the young guys come through and they did. I came up and we were winning. To go through the last four years, you cherish these moments. It’s been a long time for us to get back.”The Braves prevailed thanks to a 46-23 record against other teams in the NL East, including 10-5 against the Phillies with four games still to play.Philadelphia rearranged its rotation so that Nola (16-5, 2.44 ERA) would start the finale of the series in Atlanta and the first game in Philadelphia next weekend. Now the 25-year-old right-hander just has Cy Young votes to pitch for and it may be too late there as well.Nola entered September with a 2.10 ERA and near-equal billing with Washington’s Max Scherzer and the New York Mets’ Jacob deGrom.After going 3-0 with a 1.06 ERA in five August starts, however, Nola is 1-2 with a 5.01 ERA in four September outings and the eight homers he has allowed match the total from his first 27 starts.Manager Gabe Kapler is still in Nola’s corner, though.“I would just blindly vote for Nola,” he said before the Braves series. “I care so much about Nola and his candidacy that I won’t even go into expressing how I would evaluate. I think he’s been the best pitcher in the National League.”Nola, the seventh overall pick in the 2014 draft out of LSU, has 210 strikeouts in 199 1/3 innings and could join some famous Phillies pitchers this season.In the past 50 years, only Steve Carlton (twice) Miguel Cabrera Jersey , Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee have had at least 200 strikeouts and an ERA of 2.40 or better in a season among club annals.Nola has had plenty of success against Atlanta. He is 6-2 with a 2.24 ERA in 10 career starts against the Braves, including 1-1 with a 2.95 ERA in his three starts this season.Veteran right-hander Anibal Sanchez (6-6, 3.01 ERA) will pitch the series finale for the Braves and try to snap an eight-start winless streak. He has three losses and five no-decisions despite a 3.24 ERA during the stretch.Sanchez hasn’t faced Philadelphia this year but is 4-9 with a 4.91 ERA in career starts against the Phillies.Phillies first baseman Carlos Santana has the most career at-bats against Sanchez from their time together in the American League, hitting .250 in 32 at-bats with three extra-base hits and six walks.Freeman has a .318 average and a homer in 22 at-bats against Nola, and right fielder Nick Markakis had two homers in 25 at-bats and a .250 average in 25 at-bats. NEW YORK (AP) Masahiro Tanaka labored through a 31-pitch first inning against Baltimore, the team with the worst record in the major leagues, falling behind his first four batters.”Hopefully we make it out of this soon,” catcher Kyle Higashioka recalled thinking. ”You never want to get to the bullpen early.”Tanaka stranded a pair of runners when Chris Davis grounded to second baseman Gleyber Torres in short right field, and the 29-year-old Japanese right-hander regained his command. He pitched six scoreless innings to extend his unbeaten streak to 13 starts , backed by Miguel Andujar’s three-run homer in the Yankees‘ 6-3 win Tuesday night over the veteran-shedding Orioles.New York (68-37) moved 31 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2011 season, beating the Orioles for only the sixth time in 11 meetings this year. The Yankees cut their AL East deficit to five games behind first-place Boston and are on their first three-game winning streak since four straight from June 18-21.”I don’t necessarily look at it as a desperation,” manager Aaron Boone said. ”I want us to be a club that has an urgency when we walk through those doors every single day.”Coming off a three-hit shutout of Tampa Bay, Tanaka (9-2) limited the Orioles to a pair of singles and a double. He struck out eight and walked two, lowering his ERA to 2.00 over his last five starts. He is 7-0 in 13 starts since an April 17 loss against Miami and has pitched 17 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings, one out short of his big league best.He started last season 7-9 with a 5.37 ERA, then finished 6-3 with a 3.59 ERA plus went 2-1 with a 1.80 ERA in four postseason outings.”He really started to pitch well down the stretch and I think everyone saw how great he was in the postseason,” Boone said. ”So Alan Trammell Jersey , hopefully, we’re seeing him kind of follow a similar script right now.”Baltimore (32-75) arrived with its first three-game winning streak since mid-May. The Orioles traded infielder Jonathan Schoop to Milwaukee before the game for infielder Jonathan Villar and a pair of prospects, and dealt pitchers Kevin Gausman and Darren O’Day to Atlanta for four prospects and $2.5 million in international signing bonus allotment.”I see what they’re talking about when they’re talking about a rebuild and fire sale,” said center fielder Adam Jones, who used his contractual right to block a trade. ”When players walked out years ago and walked the picket lines and all that stuff, they did all that for reasons like right now. I earned this and it’s my decision. I don’t have to explain it to nobody.”Having also traded slugging infielder Manny Machado, closer Zach Britton and reliever Brad Brach in recent weeks, the Orioles obtained 14 prospects, Villar and $2.75 million in international allotment for six veterans while cutting nearly $29 million in payroll obligations for this year and next.”It might not look pretty some days,” Jones said. ”We’re going to struggle the next two months.”A sign of the Orioles’ troubles: Davis, in the third season of a $161 million, seven-year contract, went 0 for 4 with a pair of strikeouts and is hitting .157. That would be by far the lowest average for an official qualifier, breaking the mark of .179 shared by Rob Deer (1991) and Dan Uggla (2013).Run-scoring singles by Torres in the first and Greg Bird in the third built a 2-0 lead, and Bird hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth ahead of Andujar’s 13th homer. Yefry Ramirez (1-4) allowed all six runs and lasted five innings.Jace Peterson hit a two-run double in the eighth off A.J. Cole, and Peterson scored from second when Dellin Betances‘ pitch went off Higashioka’s mitt for a passed ball, and Andujar allowed the catcher’s throw to bounce off his glove for an error by the third baseman.Aroldis Chapman struck out the side for the second straight game and got his 29th save in 30 chances http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-al-kaline-jersey , his 21st in a row.Tanaka was happy he put behind another slow start.”Obviously,” he said through a translator, ”earlier in this season I knew that was not me.”NOT SLAMMINGSince Bird’s grand slam at Baltimore on July 11, the Yankees are 0 for 14 with four sacrifice flies with the bases loaded.SEATSA crowd of 46,473 was New York’s 21st home sellout, the most at new Yankee Stadium, which opened in 2009.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: LHP J.A. Happ was diagnosed with hand, foot and mouth disease, and it’s not clear whether he will be able to start Saturday at Boston. RHP Luis Cessa was removed after allowing one run and two hits in one inning at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and could get the start against the Red Sox. Newly acquired RHP Lance Lynn, due to report Wednesday, is another possibility. … OF Clint Frazier is dealing with a migraine issue, not a concussion, according to Yankees GM Brian Cashman.UP NEXTRHP Sonny Gray (8-7, 5.08) starts Wednesday afternoon’s series finale for New York and RHP Alex Cobb (2-14, 6.08) for Baltimore. Gray has won three straight starts for the first time in a year. Cobb leads the major leagues in losses after defeats in five straight outings; he opened with three hitless innings last week against Tampa Bay.—
