Phillies: INF Cesar Hernandez did not start

The NFL has its share of underrated players. With the salary cap working to ensure competitive balance Drew Lock Jersey , and rookie wages more or less predetermined, having a roster full of underrated players can be the difference from a last place finish or a berth in the playoffs. New England just won the Super Bowl with Julian Edelman and Malcolm Butler ending up playing huge roles in the Pats' victory. Thanks in large part to these underrated players, the Patriots pulled out a win in last season's Super Bowl.Some underrated players can be Pro Bowl caliber players like Jason Witten, and still struggle to get their fair share of attention. Others, like the venerable Ike Taylor and scrappy Rob Ninkovich http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.co … -authentic , are lucky to have NFL careers with so much productivity. Most players can be considered to be underrated when their respective teams know of their importance to the team, but most fans and others around the league are less aware of their productivity. Some underrated players are stars in their home towns, but thanks to their youth and inexperience many people don't know much about them. Thanks to the salary cap, there are others who are lucky enough to earn roster spots but don't seem content to just be a name on the depth chart. These are the players who put up some big numbers without breaking the bank and ruining a team's "cap".Most of these underrated players will put up some serious numbers, only to get snubbed when it comes time to selecting for the Pro Bowl. This happens every season Will Harris Jersey , adding to the ranks of the underrated. The following 20 players are all examples of what constitutes being underrated. There are many stars on this list, but in all cases there are other players who happen to get more attention. These players are the best of the underrated. The Philadelphia Phillies won another one-run game to extend their winning streak to six games.

Nick Williams, Scott Kingery and Jorge Alfaro drove in runs on consecutive at-bats in the seventh inning to help Philadelphia win 3-2 on Saturday.

With two outs in the seventh, Williams sent a line drive down the right field line that took a funny hop off the fence and eluded Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco, who bobbled the ball. The relay throw still made it to third baseman Colin Moran ahead of Williams http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.co … -authentic , but he able to avoid the tag for a triple.

Carlos Santana scored on the play. Kingery followed up with a single up the middle and then scored when Alfaro hit a double to right-center to give the Phillies all they’d need to clinch their third straight series win and improve to an MLB-best 19-7 in one-run games.

”Another win in a one-run game,” manager Gabe Kapler said. ”I think that’s something to really be proud of and something we continue to focus on.”

Jake Arrieta (6-6) worked around six hits with the help of eight strikeouts to hold the Pirates to two runs over seven innings. It was Arrieta’s first win in eight starts, though it didn’t look that way at first.

”There’s no perfect formula for how the game’s going to play out,” Arrieta said. ”Yeah, you want to score first. You want to score often. Sometimes that doesn’t happen.”

Pirates starter Jameson Taillon (5-7) was charged with all three runs. He struck out eight and walked none in his 77 pitches over 6 2/3 innings. He had allowed just two singles and hadn’t allowed a runner to even get into scoring position coming into the seventh inning. Reliever Edgar Santana allowed the go-ahead run to score with Alfaro’s double. The three runs were scored on three straight pitches.

”I was really excited and looking forward to being the guy to put an end to our tough streak here T.J. Hockenson Jersey ,” Taillon said. ”I’m at 68 pitches without a guy touching second base and someone’s warming up? That’s tough. So, I don’t know. I haven’t been pitching the greatest. I understand the trust isn’t there. “

Starling Marte singled and scored in the first and homered in the second as part of a three-hit afternoon to stake the Pirates to an early lead. Pittsburgh has lost five straight.

Victor Arano worked around a leadoff double in the ninth for his second save.
