MIAMI (AP) — Don Mattingly returns this weekend to the Bronx, where his best years as a player always ended when the regular season did. Now Mattingly is enjoying perhaps his best year as a manager, leading the Miami Marlins as they try to extend their improbable season into next week. His young Marlins broke a four-game losing streak by winning 4-2 Thursday night at Atlanta, reducing to two their magic number for clinching the playoff spot that comes with a second-place finish in the NL East. The Marlins visit the New York Yankees for a three-game series beginning Friday.
