Angels' Hector Santiago is solid, but the Boston Red Sox win, 6-1

KEY MOMENT: The game was within reach in the eighth inning, the Angels trailing, 3-1, when reliever Cam Bedrosian jumped ahead of Mike Napoli with an 0-and-2 count. But Bedrosian, called up from triple A earlier Sunday, threw two balls, a pitch that was fouled off and another ball to run the count...

Subtle changes in his game have led to the emergence of Tristan Thompson

The Canadian power forward has made small changes with big impact The Cleveland Cavaliers seem to have a monopoly on undersized centers with ugly offensive games, impressive offensive rebounding numbers, and versatile defense. If watching Tristan Thompson this season has given you a sense of deja vu, that this is a movie we have seen before, you aren't alone. When LeBron James was asked if he had ever played with someone with a nose for the ball quite like Thompson before Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals, which the Cavs lead 2-0, he didn't skip a beat. "Yeah. Andy." Anderson Varejao...

With Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hitting the Rockets for 40 points on Saturday, the most scored against them in the postseason, Rockets guard Jason Terry said he would have to take the match up personally. “What he’s done all series, I’m taking it personal,” Terry said. “With that said, I have to have a […]

Detroit Tigers place Kyle Lobstein on DL with sore shoulder; Buck Farmer to start Thursday

Farmer appeared in four games, including two starts, for the Tigers last season. He is 5-1 with a 2.98 ERA and a 1.169 WHIP in nine starts for Toledo this season. DETROIT -- Kyle Lobstein has been bothered by left shoulder soreness for some time. On Sunday, the Detroit Tigers decided it was time to make a roster move and look into it further. The Tigers have placed Lobstein on the disabled list and have promoted infielder Dixon Machado from Triple-A Toledo to take his spot on the roster, general manager Dave Dombrowski announced late Sunday morning.

Giants designate Casey McGehee for assignment

Matt Duffy will be the everyday third baseman now that McGehee is off the roster. In retrospect, with the benefit of hindsight, knowing what we know now, it's possible, just possible, that the Casey McGehee trade wasn't a good idea. The Giants designated the embattled veteran for assignment on Sunday, exposing him to waivers. The Giants will have 10 days to trade or release him if he clears waivers, after which he can accept an assignment to Triple-A. While it's not a huge surprise that McGehee isn't the starting third baseman anymore, it's something of a surprise that the Giants would give...

Rockets report: Terrence Jones remains focused on fixing ‘effort’ issues in Game 4

Rockets forward Terrence Jones, who had six points in five rebounds off the bench in Game 3, would rather look ahead than look back on Saturday night’s ugly result. “I mean, I don’t know,” Jones said about what happened to the Rockets in a 115-80 home loss to the Warriors. “I’m not a guy that […]

Red Sox 6, Angels 1: Wade Miley, Mike Napoli take charge as Sox win series

Eight strong innings from Wade Miley and four runs driven in from Mike Napoli were all the Red Sox needed Sunday night to take a series win from the Angels. Another huge day from Mike Napoli and perhaps the best start yet from Wade Miley made for another win for a Red Sox club that suddenly looks like a very real baseball team. If there were any question that Mike Napoli was back and running at full strength, he did not let them linger for long. After retiring the first four batters he faced, Hector Santiago allowed a single to Xander Bogaerts, then proved the entirely movable object in the...
