    MIAMI (AP) — Javy Guerra kept closer Kyle Barraclough’s struggles from costing Miami a victory Monday night.Guerra cleaned up a ninth-inning mess created by Barraclough http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-yan-gomes-jersey , getting Yadier Molina to hit into a double play to end the Marlins‘ 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.“It was important to be ready,” Guerra said. “I think overall I went in there prepared and got the right results. It went well.”After Wei-Yin Chen (4-8) pitched 5 2/3 innings of one-hit ball, Miami led 2-0 going into the ninth and handed the game off to Barraclough.Paul DeJong and Harrison Bader opened the inning with hard-hit singles, then Yairo Munoz walked. Pinch-hitter Kolten Wong struck out looking, but Matt Carpenter drew a bases-loaded walk to make it 2-1 and end Barraclough’s night.“Carp works the walk and then you’ve got the guy that you want up there every night in that situation with Yadi,” Cardinals interim manager Mike Shildt said.Guerra got Molina, a career .309 hitter with the bases loaded, to bounce into a double play for his first save since Sept. 27, 2014 while with the Chicago White Sox.“He saved (21 of 22) games for me in LA (in 2011),” Mattingly said. “I’ve seen him be in bases-loaded jams with nobody out and get out of them, so I know he’s a guy who’s not going to panic in that spot.”Barraclough had blown his last three save chances Kenny Lofton Jersey , allowing 10 runs in 2 1/3 innings.His role could be in jeopardy.“I think he’s healthy,” Mattingly said. “If he’s not healthy, he’s not telling us, which I don’t think is the case, but it’s something that obviously you’re not going to sit here and make any kind of decisions quickly after a game. We just won a game and we wouldn’t do anything without talking to him about it anyway.”Starlin Castro had two hits, including his ninth home run for the Marlins, who returned home after a six-game winless road trip.Former Miami All-Star Marcell Ozuna returned for his first game at Marlins Park after being traded to St. Louis in the offseason and went 3 for 4 tying his season-high with hits in a game.“It was good to see Marcie come home,” Shildt said. “He was happy to get home. He felt good about it. He likes it here and it was good to see he was received warmly as you would expect.”Luke Weaver (6-10) allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings for St. Louis.Derek Dietrich doubled to begin the game for the Marlins and scored on a check-swing hit by Brian Anderson.Castro’s home run to left in the fourth gave Miami a 2-0 lead.With one on and one out in the seventh, Munoz grinded out a 14-pitch at-bat, but Tayron Guerrero prevailed with a groundout. Pinch-hitter Greg Garcia struck out to end the inning.Ozuna beat out an infield hit in the eighth, giving Jedd Gyorko an at-bat with runners on first and second with two outs. Drew Steckenrider was able to get out of the jam as Gyorko flew out to deep center.OZUNA TRIBUTEOzuna was given a video tribute during the game http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-jim-thome-jersey , and he tipped his cap to acknowledge the appreciation.“That was impressive for me,” Ozuna said. “I didn’t even know they were going to do that for me. I appreciated it.”CHEN STRONG AT HOMEChen improved to 3-2 with a 1.94 ERA in nine home starts this season compared to 1-6 with a 10.27 ERA in nine road starts.“He never looks really any different at home or the road, it’s just that he’s pitched so much better here and that’s really the only difference,” Mattingly said. “You see his work, you see his preparation, it’s no different. It’s not like he’s serious here and then he goes on the road and he’s yucking it up and not taking it serious.”TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: OF Tyler O’Neill (groin) was placed on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to Aug. 4. … RHP Adam Wainwright (elbow) is planning on throwing a bullpen session either Tuesday or Wednesday.Marlins: RHP Sandy Alcantara (armpit) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A New Orleans.UP NEXTCardinals: RHP Miles Mikolas (11-3, 2.75 ERA) is scheduled to start the second game of the series Tuesday night. Mikolas has allowed three runs or fewer in eight consecutive starts.Marlins: RHP Pablo Lopez (2-2, 4.67) allowed one run in six innings his last start, a no-decision at Philadelphia. BOSTON (AP) — Astros manager AJ Hinch says his team is at its best when his players are putting together good at-bats one after another.Against the Boston Red Sox, the Houston hitters did that — eventually.Carlos Correa lofted a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning and the Astros won their sixth straight game, rallying past Boston 6-3 Friday night in a matchup of AL division leaders.The Red Sox Manny Ramirez Jersey , with the best record in the majors, had won three in row.Boston starter David Price had allowed just one hit and retired 14 in a row when he went into the seventh with a 2-0 lead. He left after Alex Bregman’s double and a walk and, after Ryan Brasier took over, the Astros scored three times. J.D. Martinez tied it with a single for his second RBI of the game.Houston then scored three times in the eighth. Correa put the AL Central leaders ahead, a wild pitch by Joe Kelly (4-2) scored another run and Tyler White added an RBI single.“Price was unbelievable tonight. He was throwing fastballs, cutters, both sides of the plate, changeup,” Bregman said. “It was good stuff by him, but it was a good team win by us. Happy to knock him out.Ryan Pressly (2-1) got two outs and Roberto Osuna posted his 14th save. Astro starter Gerrit Cole went six innings, giving up five hits and two runs and striking out eight.“We’re in the ballgame. Guys don’t give up at bats Danny Salazar Jersey , whether the score is 9-0 or 0-0. It’s just not the way they go about their business,” Cole said. “I’m really thankful that they do that and it makes it easier to sit there to having blown the lead but try to continue to throw quality innings. … This is a team game and it was a great team win.”Price tied a season-high with 10 strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings, allowing two hits and two runs. Boston had won the previous nine games he had started.“It’s been a couple days since the last time I was out there. I thought I threw the ball pretty good,” said Price, who returned from a bruised wrist. “I lost it there in the seventh inning when I really needed to make pitches. And I wasn’t able to do that.”Yuli Gurriel’s RBI double and Tony Kemp’s two-run double off Brasier made it 3-2 the seventh.Martinez put AL East-leading Boston in front 1-0 with a sacrifice fly that scored Mookie Betts.Xander Bogaerts hit his 20th home run to open the Boston fourth. He had an opportunity to put up more runs in the fifth but struck out with the bases loaded to end the inning.TRAINER’S ROOMRed Sox: Manager Alex Cora said LHP Chris Sale (mild left shoulder inflammation) will return to the rotation as the “opener” when Boston begins its three-game series against Toronto. Sale will be limited to about two innings for 40 pitches. … Cora also announced that 2B Dustin Pedroia has been officially shut down for the remainder of 2018. Cora said the 35-year-old veteran had an additional arthroscopic surgery on his left knee while rehabbing in Arizona in July to cleanup some scar tissue. Pedroia had two initial procedures on the knee last October.ROAD WARRIORSNow 48-21 away from Houston, the Astros own the majors’ highest road winning percentage (.696). They are 13-4 in their last 17 road games.INJURY TIMEOUTThere was about a 13-minute delay between at-bats in the second inning after home plate umpire Brian O’Nora was escorted off the field after being hit int the face by a foul tip. James Hoye moved from first base and took his place behind the plate. They went with a three-person crew the rest of the game.UP NEXTAstros: RHP Charlie Morton is 0-1 with a 4.60 ERA and 17 strikeouts in three career starts against Boston.Red Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (12-3) is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in three career outings (three starts) against Houston.
