Zack Greinke extends his scoreless streak to 272/3 innings in Dodgers' 4-3 win over Mets

LOS ANGELES – Zack Greinke is not the nervous sort. Good thing – with the lack of run support and the way the Dodgers’ bullpen has handled his leads like a wet bar of soap, the right-hander would have plenty to fret about this season. The...

Mariners come up empty in 2-0 loss to Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif. — On a Saturday afternoon that followed a four-homer Friday night, the Seattle Mariners produced…crickets. Against Oakland right-hander Kendall Graveman in a 2-0 loss at the O.co Coliseum. Graveman worked the first seven innings before Drew Pomeranz and Tyler Clippard completed the shutout, which stuck Felix Hernandez with his first loss to the Athletics in his last 14 starts in the East Bay. And that, friends, is how the Mariners, now 37-44, reached the midpoint of this disappointing season. Felix was standard Felix. Not the King in top form but still pretty good in...

A turnaround set in Clay Buchholz

First, let’s be clear that the following is still very much an “if” and not “when” proposition.But, if the Red Sox are able to transform themselves from the smoke-spitting, stench-emitting, gear-grinding, rut-finding death-trap of a jalopy they were in the first half into a smooth-as-silk dream machine in the second half, it will be because Clay Buchholz is at the wheel.

Rays Throw Game Away In the Ninth

NEW YORK | Brad Boxberger picked up the ball on a ninth-inning bunt and threw wildly to first. By the time second baseman Jake Elmore's throw reached home, the Tampa Bay Rays' losing streak had stretched to seven games. It's frustrating that the outcome of the game is based on a throw that should be pretty simple, Boxberger said after Saturday's 3-2 defeat to the New York Yankees. I didn't set my feet, just rushed it a little bit, and that's what happens. A day after the Rays wasted a two-run, 12th-inning lead in a 7-5 defeat, botched bunt defense led to their first loss on a walk-off error...

I'm going to get a lot of mileage out of the obvious pun here – the A's defeated "King" Felix Hernandez on July 4th. Really, this is the Mariners' fault. Starting a guy with the nickname "King" on July 4th is inviting fate. Kendall "George Washington" Graveman and Billy "Thomas Jefferson" Burns were both incredible. Full recap to come.
