Eagles don’t engage President Trump after snub, but dispute heats up on all sides
The Eagles treaded lightly after being uninvited to the White House.
In a statement released Monday night, the team praised their accomplishments and avoided engagement with President Donald Trump after he banned the Super Bowl champions from participating in the traditional visit.
However, Edwin Diaz got the final four outs for his 22nd save in 25 opportunities, finishing the Mariners’ 20th one-run win of the season and sending the Rays to their eighth straight loss.
We know it will flip around, Arroyo said. We made a comeback tonight, made a comeback last night. We’re that one hit away.
We had some good extended ABs against Gonzalez, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. We had some guys out there. We just needed another hit. We were missing that to finish the comeback.
Justin Miller (3-0) retired all five batters he faced after replacing Gonzalez. Fellow reliever Brandon Kintzler left with a tight forearm after facing three batters in the eighth inning and will undergo an MRI on Sunday. He was replaced by Sean Doolittle, who earned his 16th save in 17 chances.
Tanaka was given an IV after he came out and may be sent for MRIs on Saturday. Manager Aaron Boone wasn’t sure whether Tanaka would miss a start.
I could see it being either way, Boone said. If it’s cramping and that kind of thing, then maybe you dodge a bullet there. But we could look at it tomorrow, and it could be more severe.
Tanaka missed a turn in September 2015 after straining his right hamstring while running to first after bunting at Citi Field. A National Leaguer for nine of his 12 major league seasons, Boone has a new view about whether the NL should join the AL in adopting the designated hitter.
