Seattle had lost six of seven before travelling to Camden Yards for a four-game series. The Mariners Zach Brown Jersey , who are trying to keep pace with first-place Houston in the American League West, have already taken the opening two games in Baltimore.

Mariners left-hander Wade LeBlanc (3-0, 3.26 ERA) will pitch the third game of the series Wednesday. He has been one of Seattle’s most consistent pitchers this season.

LeBlanc is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA in four career appearances, including two starts, against Baltimore. He will be making his first start at Camden Yards.

“You go where you think the opportunity is best, and if it’s not, you kind of audible out and see what else is out there,” said LeBlanc, who signed with Seattle after being released by the Yankees in spring training.

The Mariners are also getting a boost from their bullpen.

As a result, manager Scott Servais might be sporting a new look in the not-too-distant future because of a bet he made with Edwin Diaz earlier this season. Servais said he would get waves identical to the ones shaved into the side of Diaz’s head if the closer managed at least 50 saves this season. Diaz recorded his league-leading 29th save Tuesday night.

“I’m looking forward to the day; others in my family are more concerned,” Servais said about the potential haircut Tuesday. “It’s part of the deal. It’s what you sign up for. It was all in fun.”

However, designated hitter Nelson Cruz, who is batting .270 with 20 homers and 48 RBIs Devin Bush Jersey , was scratched from the lineup Tuesday with lower back tightness. He snapped a string of 32 consecutive appearances. His status for Wednesday is uncertain.

Meanwhile, Baltimore (23-55) is jockeying with Kansas City for the worst record in the majors.

Alex Cobb (2-9, 6.56 ERA) will try to get the Orioles back on track. Cobb had an encouraging outing against the Braves on Friday when he allowed just one run over seven innings.

“You notice more when you do make mistakes over the middle of the plate,” said Cobb, who has gone seven innings in each of his last two starts. “They’re not usually line-drive hits. They’re usually ground balls that if they don’t find somebody, they’re just right out of reach. Getting ground balls on mistake pitches really tells me that my delivery is in line and the ball’s coming out the right way.”

Cobb is 2-4 with a 6.81 ERA in seven career starts against Seattle.

The Orioles got more bad news on the injury front when starter Dylan Bundy was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained left ankle. Bundy suffered the injury running to third base Saturday in an interleague game against Atlanta.

Showalter expects Bundy to return for a July 6 game in Minnesota. In a corresponding move, reliever Donnie Hart was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday to fill out the pitching staff.

Bundy is 6-7 with a 3.75 ERA and 1.208 WHIP in 16 starts (96 innings). Showalter has not decided which pitcher will make the start in Bundy’s place in the series finale against Seattle.

“I want to make sure that we are able to physically keep people out of harm’s way and get through these games and compete in these games, and then we’ll see what’s standing when we get through Thursday,” Showalter said.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — It took an entire regular season and some tough losses, but the Patriots defense finally likes where it is at heading into its Super Bowl matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.It hasn’t been perfect, but after a slow start to 2018 and fighting to find an identity following the departure of defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, the Patriots have found stability for a group that gave up 25 or more points five times through its first 10 games.The Patriots rarely revisit the past Diontae Johnson Jersey , but on Wednesday linebacker Kyle Van Noy said that part of their issues early on had roots in their Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia last February.“It was just a humbling experience,” Van Noy said. “I feel like defensively we didn’t play well, so it’s just humbling to go through that opportunity like that.”Over the latter part of this season, the Patriots have used that disappointment as motivation.Following its bye in Week 11, New England’s defense held all but one of its final six opponents to 17 or fewer points. The exception was a 34-33 loss at Miami , which ended with the Dolphins scoring on a wild final play.Last season the Patriots finished fifth in the NFL, allowing 18.5 points per game. This season they were just slightly worse, allowing 20.3 points per game — seventh best in the league.In the playoffs they’ve had some of their best moments of the season.They held Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers to seven first-half points in the divisional round, then limited a Kansas City Chiefs offense that averaged a league-best 35.3 points during the regular season scoreless in the first half of the AFC championship game. Both times it allowed the offense to establish a cushion it would need in the second half.“I think our team has done a really good job of putting the last week behind us and focusing on that week that’s ahead,” Van Noy said. “You learn from those mistakes whether they’re good or bad and you try to fix those and keep trying to get better and better. This team has done a really good job of it.”Defensive line coach Brendan Daly said some of it has been as simple as guys speaking up more on the field.“I’ve been impressed with our communication and those guys’ ability to communicate with each other, get everyone on the same page in some very critical and difficult situations and be effective,” Daly said. “We’re going to have to continue to do that.”It’s all come together thanks in part to the leadership of de facto defensive coordinator Brian Flores, who took over primary play-calling duties this season.Initially he didn’t deviate much from the way Patricia did things. But he’s tried to simplify the scheme over the latter part of season Justin Layne Jersey , which has helped his players be a lot more aggressive.Cornerback Stephon Gilmore has particularly thrived in Flores’ system. During the regular season he was second on the team with two interceptions, had a team-best 20 pass defenses and recorded his first career sack. His efforts earned the seven-year veteran his first All-Pro team selection.“He’s done a great job,” Gilmore said of Flores. “He can be a friend, he can be a coach and get on you so he can do everything for you. He really cares for the players. He pushes everybody every week and gets the best out of his players.”He said preparation in practice has also paid off.“Just trusting each other on the back end and those guys getting pressure up front,” said Gilmore, who has the team’s lone interception of the playoffs. “Everything goes hand-in-hand and we’re just trying to play fast and aggressive.”The defense has also benefited from having a starting lineup that collectively missed just five games to injury.Linebacker Dont’a Hightower missed one game during the regular season, but his 15 starts are triple the five games he was limited to last season after he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury.He finished the regular season with 50 tackles, a sack and his first career interception.“My time on the field hasn’t always been as much as I wanted it to be, but this year it’s meant a lot to me,” Hightower said. “I’ve been out there, I’ve been able to play. … Looking forward to keeping this thing going.”
