NEW YORK (AP) — In a way Bruce Maxwell Jersey , Don Mattingly was about as far from the hustle and bustle of downtown New York City as an ex-ballplayer could be on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.The former New York Yankees captain was cleaning out stalls on his horse farm in Indiana when he heard the horrible news on the radio: Two planes had crashed into the Twin Towers in Manhattan, destroying the World Trade Center landmarks and undoubtedly killing thousands of people.So he went inside.“I felt like I watched TV for like three weeks straight,” Mattingly said. “Just couldn’t take my eyes off the TV.”Within a month, he returned to New York for a visit.“Unbelievable,” he recalled. “Devastating.”Mattingly, now managing the Miami Marlins, was back in New York on Tuesday as Major League Baseball once again commemorated the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks with ceremonies at ballparks all across the country.A moment of silence to honor victims and first responders was held before every game. Players, coaches and umpires wore caps with a “We Shall Not Forget” ribbon patch, and MLB planned to donate all royalties from the sales of those hats to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, the Pentagon Memorial Fund and the Flight 93 National Memorial. At Citi Field , where the Mets hosted the Marlins, more than 100 representatives from the New York Police Department, Fire Department of New York, Port Authority Police Department, New York City Office of Emergency Management and the City of New York Department of Sanitation lined up in full uniform along the warning track and baselines.Players and coaches from both teams stood alongside, interspersed between them, and shook hands before the national anthem was performed by NYPD police officer Makiah Brown .Colors were presented by the Port Authority Police Department Honor Guard in center field, and children whose parents or grandparents have fought illnesses related to the Sept. 11 attacks took the field with Mets players.“Obviously, a tough day for a lot of people. Obviously, a lot going on in the city,” Mattingly said. “It feels good to be a small part of that.”Fire Department of New York Commissioner Daniel Nigro threw out the ceremonial first pitch to former Mets captain John Franco Brett Anderson Jersey , who grew up in Brooklyn and wore an FDNY cap. FDNY Firefighter Regina Wilson sang “God Bless America” during the seventh-inning stretch.Before the game, Mattingly and Mets manager Mickey Callaway wore NYPD hats as they conducted interviews.“It’s a day that needs to be remembered and I’m proud to be a New Yorker and have this hat on,” Callaway said. “I don’t think it’ll ever be forgotten. I’m glad that baseball recognizes it every year.”At Target Field in Minnesota, the Twins honored family members of the late Tom Burnett, a Minnesota native who was one of the passengers on Flight 93 who helped crash the plane into the ground in Pennsylvania and avert a presumed attack on Washington.As players from the Twins and New York Yankees lined up on the field for the national anthem, local police, fire and emergency personnel stood between them during the song.The Kansas City Royals had several former stars, including George Brett, Mike Sweeney, Bret Saberhagen and Reggie Sanders, in the Middle East this week Blake Treinen Jersey , with Fox Sports Kansas City set to air its annual “This One’s For You” telecast during Tuesday night’s home game against the Chicago White Sox.“It means a lot to be able to say thank you,” Royals manager Ned Yost said.The former Royals planned to watch the game on Armed Forces Network, alongside members of the Missouri National Guard’s 35th Combat Aviation Brigade.“Just a difficult day for everybody. And the lives that were lost,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria recalled. “It impacted us, but it didn’t stop us. I thought we came together very well.” NEW YORK — Nearly a month ago, the Washington Nationals scored 25 runs against the New York Mets.Now they are on the verge of going scoreless in New York.The Nationals seek their first run since Wednesday night when they try to avert a three-game sweep by the Mets on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field.Article continues below ...Since Ryan Zimmerman hit a game-winning, two-run homer in the ninth inning off Seranthony Dominguez to beat the Philadelphia Phillies, the Nationals have not scored. In those 27 innings, the Nationals are batting .176 (16-for-91) with 28 strikeouts while going 1-for-17 with runners in scoring position and 3-for-27 with men on base.It is the first time that Washington has been blanked in three straight games since leaving Montreal after the 2004 season. The last instance of the franchise getting shut out in three straight games was April 13-15, 2004, against the Miami Marlins when Brad Penny , Dontrelle Willis and Carl Pavano did it.The Nationals are coming off consecutive 3-0 losses to the Mets, the same team they beat 25-4 at home on July 31. Since scoring the most runs in a game in franchise history, the Nationals are 11-13.“It’s been difficult,” Nationals center fielder Adam Eaton said. “It’s very mind-numbing because we do have such good talent and we have guys that have unbelievable numbers throughout their career. And for some reason, this year we haven’t really been able to put it together.”Eaton had two of Washington’s seven hits and reached four times Saturday.The Nationals desperately tried to get a spark, and they began the game with consecutive bunts, a hit-and-run play and a delayed steal.“I’m trying to get things going, and moving things around and see what happens,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez. “It’s like somebody shut the door to get home. We got to get home. We got to get home.”Bryce Harper is hitless in 11 at-bats during the shutout streak and hitless in his last 13 at-bats since a fourth-inning single Wednesday.Since suffering the worst loss in team history, the Mets (58-71) are 14-9 in their last 20 games. They also are 11-6 in their last 17 after Amed Rosario homered and had three hits Saturday.“I think the guys know that we’re better than we should’ve been in the past, and we’re starting to play like a team that’s more capable Sean Manaea Jersey ,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. “It’s fun that nobody’s ever lost their enthusiasm.”New York also had produced consecutive shutouts for the first time since Aug. 11-12, 2015, when Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom beat the Colorado Rockies. This time, Jason Vargas and Zack Wheeler pitched seven innings apiece and the Mets allowed three runs or less for the eighth straight game while improving to 8-6 against the Nationals.“We know it’s the Nationals,” Callaway said. “We know that we had our struggles against them. You can feel it. There’s a lot of energy.”During this shutout streak, Max Scherzer, Gio Gonzalez and Tanner Roark have produced effective outings for the Nationals. On Sunday, Jefry Rodriguez will make his eighth appearance and sixth career start.Rodriguez is 1-1 with a 5.46 ERA so far and is facing the Mets for the first time. As a starting pitcher, he is 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA. He last pitched Aug. 18 in a 7-5 loss to Miami when he allowed four runs in five innings of a no-decision.New York’s starting pitchers own a 1.40 ERA in its last eight games and Steven Matz will try to keep it going. Matz will make his third start since ending a disabled list stint with a forearm strain.He last pitched in Tuesday’s 6-3 win over San Francisco when he allowed two runs in five innings. Matz was on the mound for the 25-4 loss in Washington when he allowed seven runs and eight hits while getting two outs.The left-hander is 1-3 with a 10.61 ERA in his last five starts after posting a 3.38 ERA before the All-Star break.He is 0-2 with a 7.31 ERA in four starts against the Nationals this season. In his career, he is 1-4 with a 4.00 ERA in eight starts against Washington.
