DETROIT — The ceremony on Sunday to retire the No. 3 worn by new Detroit Hall of Famer Alan Trammell is likely to overshadow the Tigers‘ game with the Chicago White Sox.Trammell http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-mark-reynolds-jersey , who played shortstop in Detroit for 20 years, will be honored in a pregame ceremony just two weeks after the Tigers did the same for former Trammell teammate and fellow Hall of Famer 2018 inductee Jack Morris.“I almost feel somewhat embarrassed,” Trammell said earlier this week. “But you know what, I’m very proud, no question.”Article continues below ...Trammell, as fits his personality, doesn’t want to compare being voted into the Hall of Fame with having his jersey number retired.“People ask me, and it’s 1a and 1b,” Trammell said. “To me, to have my number retired is very special, because this is where I played. This is where I made my name. This is why and how I got to the Hall of Fame. Right here. I’ll never forget that.”The White Sox won their second straight game Saturday night since manager Rick Renteria returned to the dugout from a four-game absence because of lightheadedness.Lucas Giolito handcuffed the Tigers for seven innings of a 6-1 White Sox victory.After the game, Detroit optioned the losing pitcher, left-handed starter Ryan Carpenter, to Triple-A Toledo and said a player would be brought up from the Mud Hens on Sunday.Chicago will start rookie right-hander Michael Kopech (0-0, 0.00 ERA), who is the center of a scandal for tweets he made five years ago when he was 17. It’s Kopech’s second major league start, his first lasting just two innings (52 pitches) because of a rain delay.Kopech has a fastball as big as the moon but has had control issues in the minors. He showed some improvement in his recent minor league starts Brandon Kintzler Jersey , which one of the reasons the White Sox brought him up.“Everything is good,” said shortstop Tim Anderson, Chicago’s only African-American roster player. “We all make mistakes when we’re younger, so I don’t think that affects who we are today. He apologized, so there is no bad blood between us. He’s a great person, good teammate. It’s something you have to learn from.”Giolito said, “He is a very good person. Collectively, as a team, we recognize that he used poor language on Twitter when he was in high school. I had a conversation about it with him (Thursday), and the main thing for me is that he recognizes that using that type of language can be very disparaging to the groups of people it goes against.“Obviously, he doesn’t hold any of those beliefs — he never held any of those beliefs. And knowing his family history, that’s just not how he was raised. He’s made that very clear to all of us, and so we support him as he kind of goes through this mess.”Detroit counters with right-hander Jordan Zimmermann (6-5, 4.18 ERA), who hasn’t fared well against Chicago in three starts this season (0-1, 9.42). For his career, Zimmermann is 5-3 with a 6.14 ERA in 11 starts against the White Sox.Kopech http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-tanner-roark-jersey , 22, said he wanted to emphasize he is not racist and never has been. His girlfriend, actress Vanessa Morgan, is biracial.“First of all, I had no right saying what I said, and I want to apologize for being stupid and an immature teenager,” Kopech said Friday. “I think maybe a misinterpretation (Thursday) is I was apologizing for maybe being racist or homophobic in the past, and I wasn’t apologizing for that — I was apologizing for what I said because I’ve never been racist or homophobic.“Unfortunately for my girlfriend and my family, I have my girlfriend in the spotlight, as well. The last thing I want is to cause embarrassment to her.”Left-hander Daniel Norris will make a rehab start Sunday for Triple-A Toledo. If all goes well, he will rejoin Detroit as a relief pitcher when rosters expand Sept. 1. He has been out since the end of April after left groin surgery.“If he’s healthy and everything’s going good, there’s a possibility we’ll bring him up here,” Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire said, noting Norris would pitch in relief. “It would be fun to actually see him up here and pitch.”Detroit announced that it was promoting right-hander Matt Manning, 20, its first-round pick three drafts ago, to Double-A Erie for two possible starts. The Tigers have bumped several players up a level in the past two weeks to give them a preview of where they may begin next season.Manning will have pitched at three levels this season when he makes his first start for Erie Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey , which will have two other first-round draft picks in its rotation (right-handers Beau Burrows and Alex Faedo). ATLANTA — The odds are still overwhelming in favor of the Los Angeles Dodgers, but at least the Atlanta Braves still have a chance in their National League Division Series.After the Milwaukee Brewers swept the Colorado Rockies to advance to the NL Championship Series earlier Sunday, the Dodgers had a chance to do the same at SunTrust Park.The Braves, though, bounced back from two shutouts in Los Angeles to edge the Dodgers 6-5 and force a Game 4 in Atlanta on Monday. If needed, Game 5 would be Wednesday at Los Angeles.Article continues below ...Freddie Freeman hit a tie-breaking homer in the sixth inning after the Braves had let a five-run lead slip away and closer Arodys Vizcaino pulled off an escape act in the ninth inning with three strikeouts to spoil the Dodgers’ sweep hopes.Only 10 of the previous 80 teams that lost the first two games of a division series have come back to win. The Braves are trying to beat the long odds as the 11th.“I like our chances,” Freeman said. “Nobody picked us to be here, so why not prove people wrong again. We can do it.”Right-hander Mike Foltynewicz, who lost the series opener in Los Angeles on Thursday, will get the Game 4 start for the Braves, while the Dodgers will call on left-hander Rich Hill.Hill, who hasn’t worked since pitching seven scoreless innings at San Francisco last Sunday, won his last five regular-season starts to finish 11-5 and is 5-0 with 1.74 ERA in nine games against the Braves.Foltynewicz was 13-10 with a 2.85 ERA in the regular-season but lasted just two innings in Game 1 while giving up a lead-off homer by Joc Pederson and a three-run blast by Max Muncy an inning later.“Fifty pitches. He’s good. That’s just a workout,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “Quite honestly, I’d rather start him than have him coming in behind somebody. He’s raring to go and itching to get the ball. It’s still elimination, so we’re going to try and go with the best we got.”The Dodgers overcame a five-run Braves second inning highlighted by rookie Ronald Acuna Jr.’s grand slam but couldn’t cash in on their chances after Freeman put the Braves back ahead.The Dodgers have seven homers in the NLDS, but just 10 other hits. Los Angeles Pat Tillman Jersey Limited , which received nine walks, left nine runners on base, including four in the final two innings.“The seventh, eighth and ninth, we had our chances,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “We couldn’t get that one extra hit.”Acuna, at age 20, is the youngest major leaguer to hit a bases-loaded homer in the postseason. Mickey Mantle did it at 21 for the New York Yankees in the 1953 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers.Acuna, who hit 26 homers in the regular season, had a double and single in Game 2 and followed that up impressively on Sunday. He is batting .273 (3-for-11) while Atlanta is hitting .144 in the series.“He continues to amaze,” Freeman said. ‘He’s been doing it all year and he continued it in the playoffs. He’s pretty incredible, and everybody is starting to get to see it.”
