SAN DIEGO — The San Francisco Giants were officially eliminated from the National League West race Monday night despite defeating the Padres 4-2 in the opener of a three-game series.But the Giants could celebrate a very small consolation prize Tuesday at Petco Park.Any combination of a Giants win and a Padres loss — remember [url=http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-rod-carew-jersey]http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-rod-carew-jersey[/url] , they are playing each other — will clinch fourth place for the Giants in the division.Article continues below ...The Giants will send Derek Holland (7-8, 3.46 ERA) to the mound against rookie Joey Lucchesi (8-8, 3.67 ERA) in a match of left-handers.The 31-year-old Holland is on a late-season run. Over his last six starts, he has a 1.59 ERA (six earned runs in 34 innings) and a .197 opponents’ batting average.Holland will be making his fifth career start against the Padres, with three of the previous four coming this season. Overall, Holland is 1-1 with a career 6.20 ERA against the Padres. In his three starts this season, he is 1-0 with a 4.91 ERA. But he has a 4.66 ERA (five earned runs in 9 2/3 innings) and a .270 opponents’ batting average in two previous starts at Petco Park this season.Tuesday will be Holland’s 33 appearance and his Giants’ leading 29th start of the season. He has worked 158 2/3 innings, giving up 67 runs (61 earned) on 139 hits and 61 walks with 159 strikeouts for a .237 opponents’ batting average and a 1.26 WHIP.Holland is 3-5 on the road this season with a 3.42 ERA in 17 games (16 starts). Right-handed hitters are batting .251 against Holland while left-handers are batting only .186 with no homers in 129 at-bats. Right-handed hitters have 17 homers in 458 at-bats. The Padres’ offensive strength is the power in such right-handed bats as Hunter Renfroe, Franmil Reyes, Austin Hedges and Wil Myers.Lucchesi, meanwhile [url=http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-brian-dozier-jersey]Brian Dozier Jersey[/url] , will be making the 24th start of his rookie season. He has faced the Giants only once — and that was back on April 15 at Petco Park when he held San Francisco to one run on five hits and no walks with nine strikeouts over six innings in a 10-1 Padres win.Lucchesi has worked 115 1/3 innings, allowing 51 runs (47 earned) on 107 hits and 40 walks with 123 strikeouts. He has a .248 opponents’ batting average and a 1.27 WHIP. Like Holland, Lucchesi has allowed 17 homers.Lucchesi is 5-5 with a 3.97 ERA in 14 starts at Petco Park, where opponents have 12 homers and .260 batting average against him. He has a 1.40 WHIP at home compared to a 3.23 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP on the road, where opponents are hitting only .230 against him.Right-handers are hitting .249 against Lucchesi with 16 homers in 338 at-bats. Left-handers are batting only .245 with one homer in 94 at-bats.The Giants are now 9-5 against the Padres this season and will clinch the season series with one more win. WASHINGTON (AP) — Juan Soto had another big hit in his impressive rookie season, though it came long after most of the Nationals Park crowd had gone home.Soto’s two-run single highlighted a four-run eighth inning and the Washington Nationals rallied past the Milwaukee Brewers for a 5-4 win in a game that was delayed 1 hour, 57 minutes by rain in the top of the eighth and ended well past midnight.“It’s a testament to the boys. They don’t quit,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. “They wanted to get back out there and play. They got the field ready. Stopped raining for us. We were able to come back and get a big win.”With Washington trailing 3-1 in the eighth, Adam Eaton capped a nine-pitch at-bat with a two-out double off Joakim Soria (1-1). Trea Turner then lofted a single to left to make it 3-2. After Turner stole second Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon walked to load the bases.With close Josh Hader unavailable, Dan Jennings came on to face Soto, who singled up the middle on a 2-2 pitch [url=http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-morneau-jersey]http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-morneau-jersey[/url] , scoring Turner and Harper with his third hit of the night.“I was there to fight,” Soto said. “I know he got a little bit problem, sometimes he (balks). So, I know he’s going to throw the fastball because he doesn’t feel very comfortable doing his move.”Rendon then scored on a wild pitch by Jordan Lyles.“Dan did his job,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said of Jennings. “He gives up a ground ball and that’s what we’re asking Dan to do is get a ground ball … but Soto hit a ground ball up the middle.”Washington’s Greg Holland (1-2) retired Manny Pina with the bases loaded to end the eighth and Justin Miller survived Tyler Saladino’s pinch-hit solo homer in the ninth for his second save.Pina had two hits including a seventh-inning home run.Milwaukee saw its three-game winning streak snapped one day after acquiring a trio of veterans, pitchers Gio Gonzalez and Xavier Cedeno, and outfielder Curtis GrandersonBrewers starter Chase Anderson gave up a run and four hits over five innings before the bullpen lost the lead.“I think we’ll be fine,” Anderson said of the loss. “I know how we respond to things. Our bullpen’s picked up the starters a lot this year. Just gotta pick those guys up.”Washington’s Stephen Strasburg allowed two runs on five hits over six innings while striking out seven.Strasburg held the Brewers to one hit through four innings, but they broke through in the fifth.After Mike Moustakas doubled, Jonathan Schoop’s smash deflected off Rendon’s glove at third and down the line. As Rendon jogged after it, Moustakas scored. With two outs [url=http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-kirby-puckett-jersey]Kirby Puckett Jersey[/url] , Christian Yelich lined a single just beyond the reach of a leaping second baseman Wilmer Difo to make it 2-0.Washington got one back on Difo’s infield single in the bottom half.FAREWELL GIOFormer National Gonzalez was the subject of a pregame video tribute and received a warm ovation. It’s unclear how he’ll be used by Milwaukee, which has named starting pitchers — none of them Gonzalez — through Wednesday. “He will play a role,” manager Craig Counsell said. “He started (last Wednesday). He’s not available to pitch right now. When he’s able to pitch here, he will get outs for us.”WELCOME TO THE TEAMBrewers: Recalled C Jacob Nottingham, INF Tyler Saladino, OF Domingo Santana and RHP Brandon Woodruff from Triple-A Colorado Springs; and OF Keon Broxton from Class-A Wisconsin.Nationals: Recalled C Pedro Severino and selected the contract of RHP Austen Williams from Triple-A Syracuse.TRAINER’S ROOMNationals: C Matt Wieters is dealing with a hip/groin issue that has bothered him since Washington’s series in Philadelphia earlier this week. That prompted Severino’s recall. … RHP Jeremy Hellickson (right hamstring strain) threw a bullpen session Saturday.UP NEXTBrewers: RHP Junior Guerra (6-9, 4.09) is 0-4 with a 7.28 ERA over his last eight starts. He’s 1-0 with a 1.88 ERA in three career games — two starts — versus Washington.Nationals: Rookie RHP Jefry Rodriguez (2-1, 4.54) has a 1.69 ERA over his last three starts. He’s making his first start against Milwaukee.
