Cowley of the White Sox on May 28,

WASHINGTON -- Now that its clear his Miami Marlins last game of the season will be completely meaningless in the standings -- for his team, for the opponent, and for everyone else -- manager Don Mattingly is handing over control to Martin Prado. Bryan Holaday Jersey .For the 2016 finale on Sunday, Prado will have double duty, playing third base and running the Marlins as their skipper-for-a-day against the Washington Nationals.If its a game thats not doing anything, we let a player manage. Basically, somebody will be a pitching coach, somebody will be a hitting coach. Its more of a fun thing than anything else. Well have to talk to the other team, let the umpires know, things like that, Mattingly explained. But its nothing that youre going to do anything to disrespect the game or anything else. Its just a matter of letting the guys have some fun.While the Marlins already had been eliminated before Saturdays 2-1 loss to Washington, the Nationals didnt clinch home-field advantage for their NL Division Series until the next-to-last day of the regular season. But with that accomplished, Sundays outcome does not matter to either team.Mattingly wasnt sure which players would assist Prado but said, Hes got to have his crew.On Saturday, Bryce Harper delivered an RBI single, rookie Trea Turner hit his 13th homer and stole his 32nd base, and Tanner Roark tuned up for the playoffs with 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball.NL East champion Washingtons third trip to the postseason in five years will begin Friday in the nations capital against the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers, with Max Scherzer slated to face Clayton Kershaw. Game 2 is the following day, before the best-of-five NLDS shifts to L.A.The Nationals, it turned out, didnt need to beat the Marlins. The Dodgers 3-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants, assuring Washington of finishing with a better record than Los Angeles, was announced before the bottom of the seventh to the Nationals Park crowd of 31,635, which responded with a standing ovation.While home field might not seem like a big deal in a short series, Nationals manager Dusty Baker figured it was important in this instance.Thats because the Dodgers went 53-28 at home, a .654 winning percentage, but are only 38-42 on the road, .475.Theyre under .500 on the road and way over .500 at home. So which one would you suggest? Baker said. Im not a numbers man, exactly, but I think it would be to our best interest -- give us the best chance -- to have them come here, versus us going there.Roark (16-10), lined up to pitch Game 2 against the Dodgers, allowed Miami only three hits, including Chris Johnsons RBI single to right in the sixth. Mark Melancon got the last four outs for his 46th save.Turner singled and came around to score on Harpers line drive up the middle in the first inning, then delivered a solo shot off Wei-Yin Chen (5-5) in the fifth.CHENS SEASONChen gave up two runs and six hits in five innings and finished 2016 with a 4.96 ERA in 123 1/3 innings across 22 starts. He went on the DL with a strained left elbow on July 25, returning Sept. 19 and made three starts the rest of the way. Its obviously helped establish that hes healthy. Been able to bounce back, Mattingly said.SITTING STANTONMarlins RF Giancarlo Stanton was out of the starting lineup Saturday, and will be on Sunday, too, Mattingly said, to make sure the slugger does not enter the offseason hurt. Stanton was sidelined with a groin injury into September. He may get an at-bat, a pinch-hit, or something like that. He still wasnt playing at 100 percent, Mattingly explained, and once the games were meaningless, its harder to take a chance on him having to rehab during the winter.UP NEXTMarlins: RHP Tom Koehler (9-13, 4.15 ERA) starts.Nationals: RHP Scherzer takes a 19-7 record, 2.82 ERA and career-high 277 Ks into Sunday, chasing an NL Cy Young Award to add to the 2013 AL honor he won for Detroit while going 21-3. Thats been the pinnacle for pitchers ever since I was in the game -- and long before me. It would be forever: `Hes a 20-game winner, Baker said. Expounding on how he views pitchers stats, Baker said: People put a lot of emphasis on ERA, which is good, but I put emphasis on wins for a guy that knows how to win. Miguel Rojas Jersey . A big centre with all the tools to be an elite player, Johansen paced the Blue Jackets with a standout game Saturday night. He had a goal and two assists for a career-high three points as Columbus beat the New York Islanders 5-2 to snap a five-game losing streak. Brian Anderson Jersey . Varlamov made 33 saves and Ryan OReilly had a goal and scored in the shootout as the Avalanche beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night. .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. CHICAGO -- Chicago White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodon tied an AL record by striking out the first seven Minnesota Twins batters Friday night.The 23-year-old Rodon matched the mark set by Joe Cowley of the White Sox on May 28, 1986, at Texas. The major league record to start a game is eight strikeouts set by Houstons Jim Deshaies in 1986 and matched by Jacob deGrom of the New York Mets in 2014.Four of Rodons strikeouts came on sliders, two on fastballs and one on a changeup. Brad Ziegler Jersey. He got John Ryan Murphy looking on a 97 mph fastball to lead off the third. Logan Schafer ended the streak with a double to right.Rodon struck out 11 in his previous outing, including the final three hitters he faced, in a win Sunday at Cleveland.Rodon was the third overall draft pick by the White Sox in 2014.
