Mariners Insider | Tacoma News-Tribune CLEVELAND – The highlights show will feature Jason Kipnis’ walk-off, laser of a line-drive, three-run homer as the reason the Cleveland Indians beat the Seattle Mariners, 6-3 in 10 innings, on Friday night at Progressive Field, and deservedly so. But while Kipnis’ power display off of hanging slider from Lucas Luetge was impressive, what really cost the Mariners a victory was speed. If not for the blazing speed of Drew Stubbs and Michael Bourn, Kipnis doesn’t come to the plate in the 10th inning and get to be a hero. “Their speed got us there at … Read more »

San Francisco Chronicle Giants lose wild one under Coors big top If you said Jordan Pacheco, whose fifth-inning grand slam off Madison Bumgarner broke a 5-5 tie, thanks for playing and better luck next time. Fowler's play stood in complete contrast to the Giants' defense, the real culprit in a loss that ended their 10-game win streak against Colorado - and for that matter, their 1-3 trip. The Bumgarner, Sandoval and Pagan throwing errors helped the Rockies overcome a 4-0 Giants lead and made two of Bumgarner's career-worst nine runs unearned. Errors aside, it was a 5-5 game when Bumgarner walked D.J. LeMaheiu wi...San Francisco Giants 13 hours ago

Chicago Sun-Times ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Los Angeles Angels have seen enough of Chris Sale for a while. The White Sox can’t get enough of him.
