Although Bryce Harper is set to enter free agency after the season Authentic Matt Ioannidis Jersey , the Washington Nationals reportedly have no interest in trading the superstar.Jon Heyman of Fancred outlined several reasons why he won't be dealt before the July 31 non-waiver deadline:Jon Heyman JonHeymanRivals believe there鈥檚 almost no chance nats will market/trade Bryce Harper in 28-hour window that exists. 1. They want to sign him long-term. 2. They are within striking distance of 2 young teams. 3. They have team mostly back together (except Strasburg).The Nationals (52-53) entered Monday six games behind the Philadelphia Phillies for first place in the National League East. They are also six games out of the second wild-card spot.Despite the team's struggles to this point of the year, the Nationals clearly still believe they can contend for a playoff spot. While players like Adam Eaton, Ryan Zimmerman and Daniel Murphy missed large stretches of time this season due to injuries, they have returned to the field for a second-half push.Washington has won the division in four of the last six years but is yet to win a playoff series.However, it makes sense to at least explore a trade for Harper, especially considering the Baltimore Orioles received five prospects in return for Manny Machado鈥攁nother pending free agent鈥攅arlier this month.Ken Rosenthalof the Athletic reported Sunday the outfielder was available in trade discussions, with the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs all interested.Considering Harper is a six-time All-Star in seven major league seasons and a former NL MVP Award winner, the cost will be significant, even for a two-month rental. However, this could give one of those teams an advantage in re-signing him as a free agent this winter.With Washington clearly interested in keeping him around next year and beyond, it seems unlikely the squad deals away its best asset. Game 2 was the first time the Los Angeles Dodgers led the Boston Red Sox at any point of the series. Boston played one full inning with the Dodgers up 2-1 before answering back with three runs of their own to put them up 4-2.In Friday night's Game 3鈥攖he longest game in World Series history鈥攖he Dodgers put even more pressure on the Sox, going up 1-0 in the third inning. Boston didn't answer back until the eighth inning, with a solo homer by Jackie Bradley Jr. tying the game at 1-1 and sending the third tussle of the 2018 World Series into extra innings.The Sox were finally able to notch a second run in the 13th inning, but the Dodgers responded with a run of their own to level proceedings. The marathon of a game, which lasted more than seven hours Matt Ioannidis Jersey Elite , went to the 18th inning. That's when Los Angeles' Max Muncy had a walk-off homer to give his team an epic 3-2 win and cut Boston's series lead to 2-1.The most exciting game of this World Series, Game 3 showed off both teams' pitching abilities on a night where each squad sent nine different pitchers to the mound. The Red Sox pitchers totaled 15 strikeouts and two earned runs, while their Dodgers counterparts answered back with 19 strikeouts and two earned runs.While L.A. stepped up from its three-hit Game 2 performance with 11 hits in Game 3, Boston had a little more trouble at the plate, hitting only seven鈥攊ts lowest total of the series.Game 4 InfoWhen: Saturday, 8:09 p.m. ETWhere: Dodger Stadium, Los AngelesTV: FoxLive Steam: Fox Sports Go Game 4 PreviewWith Games 3 and 4 back-to-back, the pitching lineup was unknown until Friday afternoon, when it was announced Nathan Eovaldi would start Game 4 for the Red Sox and Rich Hill would be in for the Dodgers.However, the situation changed as Boston stretched into the 12th inning of Friday night's game. Eovaldi was brought out to relieve Heath Hembree from the mound and pitched six innings. He struck out five and allowed three hits on 97 pitches before giving up the homer that won the Dodgers the game.David J. Phillip/Associated Press/Associated PressOn Saturday afternoon, the Red Sox finally released their starting pitcher for Saturday night's game. Left-handed Eduardo Rodriguez will be the first player since 1924 to start a World Series game on zero days' rest, according to MLB.com.SportsCenter SportsCenterEduardo Rodriguez will become only the 6th pitcher in World Series history to start a game on 0 days rest. The last guy to do that and win?Orval Overall ... in 1908. kvZCL2QJAQWhile Rodriguez has played frequently in the postseason, he has not played for very long鈥攚ith his most pitching in one game coming in 1.2 innings against the New York Yankees in the division series. Additionally, Rodriguez has not started a game in the postseason yet and hasn't pitched more than 3.7 innings since September 13.Rodriguez had an ERA of 3.82 in the regular season, and in the 4.1 innings he has played in six different postseason games, he has allowed three earned runs. Along with that http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/matthew-ioannidis-jersey , he has allowed two hits and a homer while walking three and striking out five.Rodriguez has struggled giving up runs, which could prove to be problematic for the Sox. In the month of September, Rodriguez gave up 15 earned runs in 25 innings played.Here's a look at how Dodgers players have fared against Rodriguez in their careers:Brian Dozier: 4-for-9, 2 HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 3 KDavid Freese: 1-for-2, 2 BBEnrique Hernandez: 2-for-2Manny Machado: 6-for-33, 2 2B, 4 BB, 6 KCorey Seager: 1-for-3, 2B, RBI, KChris Taylor: 1-for-1Justin Turner: 0-for-3, KHill has also been confirmed as the starting pitcher for the Dodgers despite some doubt. Hill was initially slated as Game 4's starting pitcher; however, after Friday night's 18-inning game Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey , the Dodgers said their starting pitcher was "TBD."Yianni Kourakis YianniKourakisDave Roberts says they were toying with an 鈥渙pener鈥?but decided to stay with Rich Hill for game four ufVe4FfJ1EDuring the regular season, Hill boasted an ERA of 3.66 and led the Dodgers' pitchers in wins with 11. He has started two games in the postseason and closed the Dodgers' 7-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 6 of the National League Conference Series.In the two games he started and won against the Brewers and the Atlanta Braves, Hill allowed only three earned runs and seven hits through 9.1 innings. He struggled to hit the strike zone, though, allowing eight walks while striking out nine.Against Boston, however, the 13-year veteran has found more success. Here's a look at how some of the Red Sox players have matched up against Hill in their careers:Mookie Betts: 1-for-1Brock Holt: 0-for-1, KIan Kinsler: 1-for-7, 2 K, 2 BBJ.D. Martinez: 2-for-9, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB, 5 KMitch Moreland: 0-for-2, 2 KEduardo Nunez: 4-for-9 Adrian Peterson Jersey Elite , 2B, HR, 2 RBI, KSteve Pearce: 3-for-11, RBI, KHill has 12 strikeouts compared to three walks and 11 hits. This does not bode well for a Sox team that struggled to get anything going at the plate during Friday's game.Hill's experience and stronger numbers lean toward a favorable matchup for the Dodgers. While both teams exhausted their bullpens on Friday night, the Dodgers were able to rest Hill and have him ready for Saturday night. Rodriguez, on the other hand, pitched one out鈥攁 strikeout鈥攊n the fifth inning of Game 3. With Rodriguez's track record for playing fewer innings and Hill's team-high 11 regular-season wins, the Dodgers look like they may be able to tie up the series 2-2 on Saturday night in Los Angeles.Game Prediction: Dodgers 5, Red Sox 3
