Nationals nearly match Royals' season run total during series at Coors Field

This is the tale of two baseball teams. One with an explosive offense that just got done carving up Coors Field and making mince meat of Colorado Rockies pitching. The Nationals are obviously flying high right now, having won 10 of their last 11 games overall.... Read more

27-04-2017

SAN FRANCISCO The momentum generated by Christian Arroyo and Michael Morse late Wednesday night lasted just a few hours. The bullpen, which had kept Bruce Bochys guys in close games all series, finally broke in the 10th.

For the first time since being traded in 2012, Dickey returns to Citi Field

R.A. Dickey will make his first appearance at Citi Field since being traded by the Mets in late 2012. In 2012, Dickey, his story and his knuckleball distracted Mets fans from an otherwise disappointing season, during which he led the NL in victories (20) and strikeouts (230) and won the franchise's first Cy Young Award since Dwight Gooden in 1985. In the infamous trade, Mets GM Sandy Alderson sent the 38-year-old Dickey and catchers Mike Nickeas... Read more

Mets’ Noah Syndergaard scratched with biceps discomfort

Mets ace Noah Syndergaard was scratched from his scheduled start against the Braves on Thursday afternoon with biceps tendinitis, joining a group of injured teammates that has grown to a troubling size in recent weeks. The Mets initially chose to skip Robert Gsellman’s spot in the rotation following a rainout on Tuesday, slotting in Syndergaard on Wednesday and Matt Harvey on Thursday, but hours later decided to give the ball to Gsellman. Syndergaard said he... Read more

Bases-loaded walk in 11th inning pushes Baltimore Orioles past Tampa Bay Rays

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles took an early three-run lead, could not hold it, fell behind in the 11th inning and then rallied to pull out a victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night. Seth Smith drew a bases-loaded walk off Danny Farquhar with two outs in the bottom of the 11th to give the Orioles a 5-4 victory. "Every win is big," Smith said. "That's all that matters at the end of... Read more

Watch live: Blue Jays take on Cardinals in Free Game of the Day

Before Tuesday night, the Toronto Blue Jays were a struggling, underperforming team that was running out of time to right the ship. Because no one was talking about the Blue Jays’ pathetic start anymore, they were talking about the greatest home plate tag anyone has ever seen. Coghlan’s slide was one of the things that helped the Jays win against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday, and they needed it badly.... Read more

Mar 25, 2017; Phoenix, AZ, USA; Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger (61) during a spring training game against the Oakland Athletics at Camelback Ranch.  Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports The Los Angeles Dodgers were going to be interesting no matter what in 2017.

Dickey makes return as Braves visit Mets

27-04-2017

R.A. Dickey has never met the players he was traded for following his National League Cy Young Award-winning season in 2012. Dickey will make his debut at Citi Field as a visiting pitcher on Thursday when he takes the mound for the Atlanta Braves against Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard in the finale of an abbreviated two-game series.

Giants rally from 3 down to stun Dodgers 4-3 in 10 innings

Michael Morse showed he has some power left in his 35-year-old swing, something he'd been telling Giants general manager Bobby Evans ever since signing a minor league contract last offseason. Morse delivered a tying, pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning, Hunter Pence hit a game-winning sacrifice fly with the bases loaded in the 10th and the Giants rallied to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 on Wednesday night. ''That was quite an energy jolt right... Read more

The A’s endured one of those nights Wednesday when the scoreboard couldn’t convey the extent of their blues. The tone of an 8-5 defeat to the Los Angeles Angels was set early, when starting pitcher Sean Manaea left after two innings with what was announced as tightness in his throwing shoulder. The seriousness of Manaea’s injury wasn’t immediately known, but his early exit added to the recent run of medical misfortune, as center fielder Rajai... Read more

Schimpf powers Padres to 8-5 comeback win over Diamondbacks

Ryan Schimpf hit a go-ahead, three-run homer with one out in the top of the ninth inning to rally the San Diego Padres past the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-5 on Wednesday night.

Orioles beat Rays in very weird baseball game

BALTIMORE  -- First, Seth Smith circled the bases on a single. Then, much later in a very strange game, he drove in the winning run without lifting the bat off his shoulder. Smith drew a bases-loaded, four-pitch walk from Danny Farquhar to force in the deciding run with two outs in the 11th inning, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 on Wednesday night. The 4-hour, 8-minute contest featured a... Read more

Instant Replay: Arroyo, Morse go deep, Giants walk off on Dodgers

SAN FRANCISCO — This spring, Hunter Pence briefly tried to cut back on his coffee intake. The experiment did not last long for a player who is pure caffeine on and off the field, but even Pence is occasionally in need of more than a large cold brew.  Pence tried to stay upbeat throughout a sluggish start to the season, but around him was a clubhouse in need of energy. Christian Arroyo walked through the door... Read more

Adam Wainwright has looked a little bit better

It’s a harsh reality check when we, as fans of the St. Louis Cardinals, are forced to accept a two earned-run, five-inning start by former ace Adam Wainwright as “a little bit better.” Yet, as Wainwright creeps ever closer to the age of 36, this level of performance is an unfortunate inevitability, even if a Hall of Fame pitcher believes he will “reinvent himself and get people out.” Frankly, even the very best pitchers —...

A's Sean Manaea exits after two innings with 'shoulder tightness' in LA

Sean Manaea has been one of the few bright spots for the Oakland A’s so far this year. In four starts, the 25-year-old has struck out 26 batters over 22.1 innings with just 12 walks.

ANAHEIM – The A’s endured one of those nights Wednesday when the scoreboard couldn’t convey the extent of their blues.

Gary Sanchez takes next rehab step, Gregorius return imminent

BOSTON — Gary Sanchez hit in the indoor batting cage twice Wednesday and is in line to throw to bases when the Yankees return to The Bronx on Friday, if there are no setbacks with his right shoulder. “Sanchez is doing well, he threw from 120 feet [Wednesday],’’ manager Joe Girardi said of his front-line catcher, who hasn’t played since April 8 when he left a game against the Orioles in Baltimore with a right...

How bad game made Mets think Jose Reyes is turning corner

As we’ve seen with Curtis Granderson and now Michael Conforto, other players can hit leadoff for the Mets, but none of them can do it like Jose Reyes. None of them can bring the speed, steal the bases and create havoc like him. That’s why the Mets — who had lost eight of nine before Wednesday night’s game against the Braves — have to get Reyes right. Or more to the point, get his mind... Read more

Hernandez, Haniger go on DL for Mariners

The struggling Seattle Mariners will be without ace Felix Hernandez for at least a little while. The Mariners placed Hernandez on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with right shoulder inflammation after he lasted just two innings in his start at Detroit the previous night.

Tigers luncheon: GM Al Avila says season has gone as expected, so far

Brody Lutz didn't fold under pressure. Standing a few feet from Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera at Wednesday's 12th annual Detroit Economic Club Tigers luncheon, the 10-year-old from Birmingham seized the opportunity to meet one of baseball's greatest hitters. Brody, wearing a No. 24 Cabrera jersey, was in the hallway outside the MotorCity Casino Hotel ballroom looking at Tigers memorabilia when his idol strolled past.

Cardinals keep drilling on defense

If Mike Shildt is making a list of fundamentals the club needs to address, and checking it twice, then the Cardinals’ new quality control coach should add an asterisk by the errant pickoff in Tuesday’s ninth inning. That was the pregame focus just hours before it happened. In what’s become a continuing effort to correct chronic defensive issues and other loose widgets in their game, the Cardinals have scheduled spring training-like drills for the regular... Read more

Giants notes: Michael Morse plans to ‘bring back the fun’

SAN FRANCISCO – The last time Michael Morse walked into AT&T Park, he was wearing a Miami Marlins uniform and receiving his 2014 World Series ring – one he helped earn by driving in the tiebreaking run in Game 7. It would have given him chills to come back regardless of the circumstances. It’s almost unbelievable to think he gets to put a Giants uniform on again, too. “This is really cool,” said Morse, whose... Read more

BOSTON — Brett Gardner and Joe Girardi were both asked Wednesday whether the left fielder’s struggles at the plate could be traced to the nasty collision at first base with Tampa Bay’s Rickie Weeks Jr. on April 12. Both said it was a possibility, but Gardner’s woes began much before then. The left fielder admitted if he wants to remain at the top of the lineup — where he was again Wednesday — his recent...

Nationals place Koda Glover on 10-day disabled list

The Nationals have placed reliever Koda Glover on the 10-day disabled list due to a left hip impingement, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. Glover said he is “extremely confident” that he’ll need only the minimum 10 days to recover. Glover, 24, felt hip discomfort when throwing his first pitch in Tuesday’s relief appearance. He attributed it to the cold, per Janes. Glover was one of a handful of candidates to handle the ninth... Read more
