SAN DIEGO (AP) — After a brutal collapse in September Chris Beck Jersey , the Arizona Diamondbacks were left with the consolation prize of finishing the season with a winning record.Rookie Ildemaro Vargas hit his first home run, got his first stolen base and drove in three runs to lead the Diamondbacks to a 5-4 victory against the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.The Diamondbacks, who reached the postseason in 2017, are 82-79 with one game to go. They led the NL West heading into September but then went into a tailspin that left them 8-18 this month.“I think that is something,” manager Torey Lovullo said. “When it’s all said and done after the month that we had, it is really positive and a good way to finish.”Vargas hit an RBI single in the first inning and a two-run homer in the fourth, both off rookie Jacob Nix (2-5).“I’m so happy,” the 27-year-old Vargas said. “My teammates from Venezuela were so happy and they support me. I’m happy and they are happy.”Vargas was called up Sept. 3 from Triple-A Reno, where he was a mid-season and postseason All-Star. He made his big league debut last season, when he played in 12 games for Arizona.Vargas’ homer staked Zack Godley to a 4-0 lead and the Diamondbacks held on to give the right-hander his career-high 15th win.“Anytime you are talking about career first it’s an exciting time Miguel Gonzalez Jersey ,” Lovullo said. “I think the guys gave him the silent treatment but it is something that he will never forget. And it had a big impact on the game. The home run didn’t surprise any of us because we have watched him play the past couple of years. It’s a special time for him and he’s one of those great stories.”San Diego dropped to 65-96, five more losses than last year with one game to go. Executive chairman Ron Fowler expected the rebuilding Padres to be better this year than their 71-91 finish last year, but they’ve lost more than 90 games for the third straight year and fourth time in eight seasons.San Diego pulled within one run in the fourth on Manuel Margot’s two-run triple and a single by rookie Javy Guerra, who got his first RBI.San Diego’s bullpen faltered in the sixth, when Jon Jay drew a bases-loaded walk off rookie Trey Wingenter.The Padres again pulled within one run when Eric Hosmer homered off Brad Ziegler in the eighth, his 18th.Godley (15-11) allowed three runs and five hits in six innings, struck out five and walked two. Yoshihisa Hirano pitched the ninth for his third save.Nix allowed four runs and five hits in four innings, walked three and had no strikeouts.“Overall I’m happy I got to be here; I’m not exactly happy with the results,” he said. “This isn’t how I was drawing up my last game in my head but it doesn’t always happen the way you imagine it. I’m ready to get to work in the offseason and try to turn my weaknesses into strengths and get back out there.”BRAD ZIEGLERThe 38-year-old Arizona reliever, who’s in the last year of his contract http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-anderson-jersey , told Lovullo he’d like to pitch in more than half of the team’s games. Saturday night’s appearance was his 82nd.“When the big man runs the floor, you’ve got to give him the ball,” Lovullo said. “I’m going to dish that one to him and let him dunk it. He deserves that. He’s had two managers who really relied on him and that’s a credit to him.”UP NEXTDiamondbacks: LHP Robbie Ray (6-2, 3.91) gets the start in the season finale. He’s 3-0 with a 2.52 ERA in his last 10 starts.Padres: Rookie LHP Joey Lucchesi (8-9, 4.14) looks to break through against Arizona after going 0-5 with a 6.85 ERA in five starts against the Diamondbacks. NEW YORK (AP) — When the July 31 trade deadline came and went, Kevin Gausman switched uniforms while Zack Wheeler stayed put.The two starters squared off just a few days later, and it was Wheeler who looked completely at ease.Gausman was outpitched in his Braves debut as the New York Mets won 3-0 on Saturday night to stop Atlanta’s five-game winning streak.Facing his hometown team, Wheeler (6-6) matched a season high with nine strikeouts over seven innings of three-hit ball and extended his shutout streak to 17 innings.“I just see him going out there and challenging hitters every night with great stuff,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said.The 28-year-old right-hander has won four consecutive starts for the first time in his career — immediately after going 13 outings without a win, which was the longest stretch by a Mets starter in 20 years.“I had all the confidence in the world http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-yoan-moncada-jersey ,” Wheeler said. “I knew what I could do if I was healthy, and I’m finally healthy and I think it’s starting to show a little bit. I’ve just got to keep my head down and keep working.”Atlanta obtained Gausman (5-9) from the Orioles on Tuesday to bolster its rotation for a tight NL East race. The right-hander, drafted fourth overall in 2012, was charged with three runs and six hits over five-plus innings during his first professional start for any organization besides Baltimore.“It was weird. I was probably more nervous today than I was for my debut,” Gausman said. “After I got the first out, it was the same game I’ve been playing for a while.”Rookie second baseman Jeff McNeil went 4 for 4 and Austin Jackson had an RBI infield single as the Mets halted a four-game skid. They improved to 4-11 against Atlanta this year and won for only the 10th time in their last 34 home games.“It was pretty unbelievable,” McNeil said. “I felt really good up there.”Bobby Wahl and Robert Gsellman finished the five-hitter, with Gsellman getting four fast outs (all on grounders to McNeil) for his sixth save.Wheeler’s long-awaited emergence after missing the 2015-16 seasons recovering from Tommy John surgery was one reason the struggling Mets held onto him at the non-waiver deadline. They hope he’ll be a big part of a major turnaround next season, and Wheeler was certainly on his game Saturday.“Zack is maturing as a person, as an athlete. His work has gotten better Welington Castillo Jersey ,” Callaway said before the game. “He is a guy that is kind of reaping the benefits of that hard work.” Firing 98-99 mph heat, Wheeler fanned his first three batters for the first time in the majors. He has permitted one first-inning run in his past 12 starts after giving up 10 in his initial nine starts.“Command’s a lot better this year and that makes it a whole lot easier,” Wheeler said. “I’m really executing right now and hopefully I can keep it up.”McNeil’s double set up Amed Rosario’s run-scoring grounder in the second before Gausman gave up three straight singles to start the sixth and was pulled.Jackson drove in a run with a single off the foot of reliever Shane Carle, and Kevin Plawecki added a shallow sacrifice fly.“I think he’s going to be a really good piece for us going forward. I like a lot about what I saw,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said of Gausman. “I just think, overall, our system will be good for him. I don’t think we are going to reinvent him by any stretch, ’cause he’s got too good of stuff. He’s a really good pitcher. I just think what we have here is going to help him.”IMMEDIATE DIVIDENDSAfter taking early infield work before batting practice, the Mets (45-63) put together a rare game of first-rate defense to delight a crowd of 36,946 that showed up eager to receive Noah Syndergaard as Thor bobbleheads. New York had been outscored 27-5 in going 0-5 against the Braves at Citi Field this season. “I was pretty busy at second base. I’ve been working hard on my defense http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-cliff-pennington-jersey , so it felt good to make some good plays out there,” McNeil said.LOOKING AHEADAtlanta plans to start left-handers Max Fried and Sean Newcomb in Tuesday’s doubleheader at Washington. Fried tossed a scoreless eighth, wriggling out of a first-and-third jam. Newcomb (10-5) will be on eight days’ rest after throwing 134 pitches last Sunday, when he fell one out short of a no-hitter against the Dodgers. … Matt Harvey is not scheduled to pitch against his former Mets teammates when Cincinnati visits Citi Field for a three-game series beginning Monday. Harvey started the nightcap of Saturday’s doubleheader in Washington and got hit hard.UP NEXTBraves RHP Julio Teheran (8-7) starts the finale of the four-game series Sunday afternoon. Teheran is 9-6 with a 2.33 ERA in his career versus the Mets and has allowed only two runs on 11 hits in 21 innings (0.86 ERA) against them this season. Rookie RHP Corey Oswalt (1-2) pitches for New York in place of injured Steven Matz. Oswalt beat San Diego in his last big league start July 25 for his first career win.
