Can Indians be this year’s Orioles? Mark Reynolds sees similarities

NEW YORK — The best team ever at winning one-run games was last year’s . The best this year is the .

, anyone?

“I a Matic has agreed a new deal to stay at Manchester United.Matic, out of contract this summer, had been in talks with the club but it looked as if he would leave.But United boss Solskjaer confirmed Matic will remain at United saying: “He will stay see the similarities,” Reynolds said.

He’s one of the similarities. Reynolds played for the 2012 Orioles. He plays for the 2013 Indians.

Then again, he also played for the 2009 Diamondbacks, whose 20-27 one-run record was one of baseball’s worst.

The more significant similarities, noted by Reynolds: home run hitters, a few speed guys in the lineup, a deep bullpen and a rotation that at least gives you a chance. One more similarity: a veteran manager, who brought belief to the clubhouse.

“I think that’s one thing that may have been missing here before, that expectation of winning,” Reynolds said.

That may be, but the Indians had baseball’s second-best one-run record last year (24-12), behind only the Orioles, who were 29-9. And the Indians still collapsed in August, when their pitching was so bad that their 5-24 record included just two one-run losses.

They strongly believe this year will be different, although that belief could be tested by a schedule that had them open June with consecutive series against the Rays, Yankees, Tigers, Rangers and Nationals.

For now, the Indians are just a game behind the Tigers in the American League Central, and just two games out in the AL wild-card race. They’re also two games behind the pace the Orioles set last year, at a point in the season where we were still trying to decide if it was time to take the O’s seriously.

“Hopefully, we can ride it out here, the way we did last year,” Reynolds said.

Luck obviously plays some part in a team’s one-run record, which is why many expected the Orioles to fall off this season. Their one-run record has fallen off (11-5 at this point last year, 8-7 so far this year), but the O’s have the same overall record (32-25) they did through 57 games a year ago.

The Indians are basically where they were a year ago, too. Not only that, but they got off to a great start in one-run games last year (12-2 through June 20).

It turned out then it didn’t mean anything. It turned out that the Orioles’ early success did mean something.

Can rtmund star Jadon Sancho, according to German media reps.Former Middlesbrough striker and Bundesliga pundit Jan Aage Fjortoft, who interviewed Sancho on the weekend, spoke to two top journalists about the 19-year-old’s future.He revealed: “I arrivethis year’s Indians become last year’s Orioles?

“That’s not a big deal to me,” ESPN.com. “As long as I get outs, it works. I watched Jamie Moyer forever get outs at 81 mph. Velocity is nothing. I felt great. It sucks I couldn’t keep going.”

It was easy for Garza to say that after averaging a healthy 93.4 miles per hour with his fastball, while not allowing a hit on either his four or two-seam offerings. He threw just 81 pitches in the game, and Garza obviously hopes the team will take the reigns off moving forward.

“You think they’re going to take me out without a fight?” Garza said. “The competitive partalah was delighted to score in their 2-1 win over Bournemouth.Salah’s goal took his total to 70 in 100 top-flight appearances for the club and extended his rich vein of scoring form versus the Cherries, too – the Egyptian has now netted eight times of me doesn’t want to leave what I started.”

Garza held the Pirates to just one hit in five innings of work.

starting pitcher heads into Wednesday’s start against the Giants with an ugly 7.48 ERA in his first five starts. Although, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson seems to think McCarthy has been a bit unlucky and the numbers appear to back him up.

McCarthy has a .396 BABIP, which is more than 100 points higher t Bosman prospect Adam Lallana.The Liverpool midfielder, who signed for the Reds from Southampton in 2014, is out-of-contract this summer and is highly unlikely to sign a new deal at Anfield. Sky Sports says as a result, he is already allowed to talk han the league average (.294), per FanGraphs.com.

“He is throwing well, he had the best stuff he has had since joining us,” Gibson said of McCarthy’s outing last Friday, per .com. “But if you look at the difference a few plays make, it’s huge. But it’s part of baseball and he has to deal with it. In my mind, he understands what’s going on.”

It’s a positive sign for the unconventional leadoff hitter as he works his way past a sluggish start in which he produced a .185 average and .262 on-base percentage over his first 15 games.

But he has rebounded nicely with a .421 OBP since then to reclaim the position and has multiple hits in three of his past seven games. He finished 1 for 4 with a run scored during the Braves’ 7-4 loss to the Tigers.
