himself out of the Milwaukee Brewers‘ rotation as they continue their August slide.Jose Peraza started Guerra’s rough outing with a two-run homer , and the Cincinnati Reds withstood Christian Yelich’s first multihomer game for a 9-7 victory Tuesday night.Since trailing the Cubs by a game on Aug. 4, Milwaukee has gone 8-11 and slid to third in the NL Central. Guerra (6-9) has been stuck in his own slump, going 0-4 in his last eight starts since July 8.The Reds ended a five-game losing streak by taking advantage of Guerra, who gave up six runs and faced only 13 batters in his shortest outing of the season. Peraza had two of his four hits off Guerra, who threw 45 pitches.“That first inning was hard, it was long,” Guerra said through a translator. “I was in the (strike) zone and they attacked me, they were going after it. There’s no excuse.” Peraza homered and Guerra let in a run with a wild pitch during a nine-batter first inning. Guerra left with the bases loaded and one out in the second. Guerra has pitched four innings or less in four of his last eight games.Asked whether Guerra will remain in the rotation, manager Craig Counsell was noncommittal.“We’re going to have to talk about that,” Counsell said. “He’s been struggling a little bit since the All-Star break.”Anthony DeSclafani (7-4) gave up four runs in 6 2/3 innings, including Yelich’s solo homer. Yelich added a three-run shot in the seventh off Jared Hughes. Yelich has 10 homers in August and a career-high 25 overall.The Brewers have homered in 20 consecutive games at Great American Ball Park Felix Hernandez Jersey , the longest streak by any team at the park, which opened in 2003.DeSclafani missed the first two months recovering from a strained oblique. In five August starts, he’s gone 3-1 with a 2.62 ERA.“It’s been the same plan since I’ve been back: throw strikes and get contact,” DeSclafani said. “You’re going to have good stretches and bad stretches. I’m feeling pretty good about my last four outings.”Raisel Iglesias got the final out in the eighth. He gave up a pair of hits in the ninth and Yelich’s run-scoring groundout — his career-high fifth RBI — before closing out his 24th save in 28 chances.HONORING McCAINThe Reds held a moment of silence pregame for Sen. John McCain, who died of brain cancer.UNDER RIGGLEMANThe Reds are 54-60 since April 19, when they replaced Bryan Price with interim manager Jim Riggleman.CATCHING A BREAKEugenio Suarez headed toward the dugout after reaching third base in the second inning, thinking the Brewers had pulled off a double play to end the inning. Instead, there were only two outs. Suarez was allowed to return to third base because Counsell had called timeout, unaware of Suarez leaving the base.GOTCHAErik Kratz had an RBI single in the fourth, but center fielder Billy Hamilton threw out a runner at the plate to end the inning. Hamilton leads the majors with 12 assists.TRAINER’S ROOMBrewers: RH Zach Davies is expected to rejoin the team over the weekend. He’s been recovering from a shoulder injury since June. Counsell hasn’t decided whether to use him in the rotation or the bullpen.Reds: 1B Joey Votto took ground balls and ran on the field pregame. He’s expected to have another workout on Wednesday, and the Reds will decide whether to activate him. Votto has been sidelined since Aug. 17 by a sore right knee Hisashi Iwakuma Jersey , which was hit by a pitch on Aug. 4.UP NEXTBrewers: Freddy Peralta (6-4) makes his second straight start against the Reds. He got a 4-0 win last Wednesday, allowing three hits and fanning seven in seven innings.Reds: Matt Harvey (6-7) makes his 19th start for the Reds. He’s 1-0 with a 1.45 ERA in his last three. MIAMI (AP) — The outfield grass at Marlins Park was a worn-out mess on Saturday, with those who arrived for the team’s annual FanFest being greeted by signs reminding them that the turf will be replaced soon.When it comes to the Marlins, many things are a work in progress.Wearing new uniforms with the rebranded team logo, in a stadium that has gotten spruced-up since last season ended, some of the 2019 Miami Marlins gathered for the first time to greet fans and start hyping the new season. Pitchers and catchers report to the team’s spring training home in Jupiter on Wednesday.“I would tell our fans to just give us a chance,” Marlins President of Baseball Operations Michael Hill said. “So many people have written off the Marlins and really haven’t taken an opportunity to take a deep look at what we’re building. When you have a lot to do, it’s going to take time and we understand where we’re at. But we’ve been able to add a tremendous amount of talent over the last 18 months.”By Hill’s count, the Marlins have added 38 prospects and upper-level players since this new regime led by Derek Jeter took over after the 2017 season. That has gone a long way toward restocking a farm system that by Hill’s own description was “barren.”“We know where we were,” he said. “We know where we’re going.”The Marlins won 63 games last season, their ninth straight year under the .500 mark and the 15th consecutive time the team missed the postseason — the second-longest drought in baseball Ken Griffey Jersey , topped only by Seattle’s run of 17 straight seasons without a playoff game. Attendance plummeted to a club record-low 811,104, and the team just traded away its best player, sending catcher J.T. Realmuto to Philadelphia.“Only one team gets to win the championship every year,” said right-handed pitcher Dan Straily, who started 56 games for the Marlins over the last two seasons. “I think every year, with every team in baseball, there’s a little bit of excitement for everybody to get going. There’s always that hope that this could be the year.”The Marlins aren’t saying if 2019 is their year. Or 2020. Or 2021, for that matter.They just believe their year is coming.For Realmuto, the Marlins got catcher Jorge Alfaro and pitching prospects Sixto Sanchez and Will Stewart from the Phillies. Alfaro has above-average power and, the Marlins believe , even a better arm than Realmuto — who they considered elite in that capacity. Sanchez has the arm to consistently reach the upper 90s on his fastball, while Stewart doesn’t throw as hard but has off-speed offerings that get him out of trouble.It’s deals like that why the Marlins truly believe this rebuild — one of many by the franchise in the last 15 years — is the right one.“They’re doing what they said: building the organization from the bottom up,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “You keep acquiring talent. You keep marching down that road that gets you to the point where you are competing for a chance to win a world championship every year. That’s the plan. That’s the goal. I think anything less than that, you don’t accept it.”There was a reason why the grass looked bad Saturday. Monster Jam — a show where five- or six-ton trucks with 66-inch tires will destroy anything in their path — is coming to Marlins Park next weekend. It’ll chew up the current turf quite nicely. From there, new sod goes down in time for opening day.“It’ll look nothing like it does right now when we come back in six weeks,” Straily said.The grass will be exactly what the team wants by then. The Marlins only hope the team is closer to their liking by then as well.
