NEW YORK — If history is any indication Paulo Orlando Jersey , the Miami Marlins will have a tough time building on the momentum of Tuesday night’s series-opening win over the New York Mets – especially since the Mets won’t have Jacob deGrom to not support during Wednesday’s doubleheader. The bottom two teams in the National League East are scheduled to play an old-fashioned doubleheader Wednesday afternoon, when the Mets host the Marlins in the middle two games of a four-game series at Citi Field. The first game, necessitated by a rainout on Monday, is scheduled to start at 4:10 PM. The regularly scheduled game will take place 20 minutes after the conclusion of the opener.The Marlins’ Trevor Richards (3-8, 4.73 ERA) is scheduled to oppose the Mets’ Zack Wheeler (10-7, 3.39 ERA) in a battle of right-handers in the opener. Miami right-hander Jeff Brigham (0-1, 9.00 ERA) is slated to face New York left-hander Jason Vargas (5-9, 6.75 ERA) in the nightcap.Article continues below ...The Marlins won the opener Tuesday night, when Lewis Brinson laced a two-run double off deGrom in the fourth inning to give Miami a lead it would never relinquish in a 5-3 victory.The game was the first since Saturday for the Marlins (57-86), whose scheduled series finale against the host Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday afternoon was rained out.“It’s exciting, I think guys are ready to play more baseball ,” said Marlins rookie third baseman Brian Anderson, who started the fourth-inning rally with Miami’s first hit, a two-out single. “We had a couple days off, so getting a win under our belt (and) kind of kick-starting the series, I think is good for us. We’re excited and we’re looking forward to (Wednesday).”A win in the opener Wednesday would give the Marlins just their third winning streak since Aug. 1. Miami hasn’t won more than two straight games since a four-game streak from July 14-21.Unfortunately for the Marlins, there’s a pretty good chance the Mets (65-78) will feel more relaxed without trying to score runs for deGrom, who allowed two runs over seven innings Tuesday but fell to 8-9 despite a 1.71 ERA.The Mets scored just three runs with deGrom on the mound in his last four starts and have scored only 72 runs with him on the mound in 29 starts overall this season. “These guys, they want to score for him so bad you can see it,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Tuesday night. “That’s the only thing I feel on the bench. Unfortunately, we just haven’t done that very much this season.”The Mets have been far more generous lately with Wheeler and Vargas. New York has scored 47 runs in Wheeler’s last 10 starts and 23 in Vargas’ last eight appearances.Wheeler benefitted from an outburst in his most recent start Sept. 5, when he received seven runs while pitching and earned the win after allowing three runs over seven innings as the Mets beat the Los Angeles Dodgers Frank White Jersey , 7-3.Vargas took the loss in his most recent start Sept. 4, when he gave up five runs (four earned) over 3 1/3 innings as the Mets fell to the Dodgers, 11-4.Richards endured the shortest start of his rookie season in his previous start Sept. 4, when he gave up six runs over 1 1/3 innings and took the loss as the Marlins were beaten by the Philadelphia Phillies, 9-4. Brigham will be making his second big league start and appearance. He lost his debut on Sept. 2, when he allowed three runs over three innings as Miami fell to the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-1.Wheeler is 4-2 with a 2.13 ERA in 10 career starts against the Marlins. Vargas is 1-1 with a 3.27 ERA in two career starts against Miami. Richards has never faced the Mets. MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jesus Aguilar has cooled off some since the All-Star break, yet still brings in clutch runs.Aguilar hit a two-run double in the bottom of the seventh inning to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Friday night.Aguilar sent a low, 0-1 pitch from Tony Watson into the gap in right-center field to score Curtis Granderson and Eric Thames. Hunter Strickland (3-5) started the seventh and walked the pinch-hitters. Watson took over one out later.“In that situation, I was just trying to be aggressive in the strike zone,” Aguilar said. “The reports say he throws a lot of change ups , and I was waiting for that pitch.”Aguilar’s heroics helped the Brewers push their wild-card lead to 1½ games over the St. Louis Cardinals, who lost 5-3 to the Detroit Tigers.Brewers manager Craig Counsell couldn’t have been happier with his slugging first baseman.“He did a nice job with what looked like a pretty good change up down and away from him,” Counsell said. “Went with it, beautiful swing.”Josh Hader (5-1) worked two innings of scoreless relief and picked up the win. Joakim Soria pitched a perfect eighth, and Jeremy Jeffress handled the ninth, earning his ninth save.Giants starter Derek Holland worked out of a two-out, bases-loaded jam in the sixth inning. He caught Hernan Perez looking at a called third strike. Holland matched his season high with eight strikeouts for the fourth time this season. He walked five and allowed just two hits in six innings. Both hits came in the first: Lorenzo Cain had a base hit and, two outs later, Ryan Braun hit his 15th home run.Alen Hanson tied it for the Giants, leading off the fifth with his eighth home run of the season.Brewers starter Chase Anderson leads the National League with 29 home runs allowed. He scattered five hits in five innings, walked one and struck out five.Anderson was in trouble in the fourth. He allowed consecutive singles to Evan Longoria and Brandon Belt Kelvin Herrera Jersey , and the runners advanced on a wild pitch. Longoria scored on Chris Shaw’s grounder to first.TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: INF Brandon Crawford was available to pinch hit, but not much more. He returned to the lineup Monday against the Colorado Rockies after missing the previous three games with a sore left knee. He played Tuesday, but then sat out Wednesday’s game. Thursday was an off day. Manager Bruce Bochy listed him as day-to-day.Brewers: C Manny Piña was back behind the plate after missing the three-game series with the Chicago Cubs. … RF Christian Yelich returned to the starting lineup after a scheduled day off Wednesday against the Cubs. He had a pinch-hit single in the ninth inning of the Brewers’ 6-4 loss to Chicago.TOUGH STRETCHThe Giants have lost seven of their last eight games, including a season-high tying six straight losses, and fell a season-high six games under .500.BOCHY, HUNDLEY EJECTEDGiants catcher Nick Hundley and manager Bruce Bochy were ejected in the ninth by home plate umpire Adam Hamari after arguing about the strike zone. Hundley had just been called out and had words with Hamari before being thrown out of the game. Bochy came out and added his own comments before getting tossed.“That was probably one of the worst strike calls I’ve had on me in my career,” Hundley said. “Probably the most inconsistent strike zones that I’ve seen all year.”It reached the boiling point for both.“Yeah, it just built up,” Hundley said. “The frustration when bats get taken out of your hands especially close in a game, but both sides were upset. So, it wasn’t like it was one-sided.”Bochy backed up his catcher after both were ejected for the second time this season.“It was mounting up ,” Bochy said of the building exasperation. “It was a rough night with some calls for us. That’s what that was. Total frustration. Losing another ballgame, that adds too it.”UP NEXTGiants: RHP Chris Stratton (9-8, 4.90 ERA) makes his third start since being recalled Aug. 21. He is (1-1, 1.77 ERA) since returning from Double-A Richmond. It’s his second career outing against the Brewers.Brewers: LHP Gio Gonzalez (7-11, 4.57 ERA) makes his 28th start of the season, third against the Giants and first for the Brewers who acquired him Aug. 31. He replaces RHP Junior Guerra (6-9, 4.27 ERA), who pitched himself out of the rotation.
