Dickey comes to rescue of depleted bullpen with seven solid innings in Jays’ win over Astros

Dickey comes to rescue of depleted bullpen with seven solid innings in Jays’ win over Astros

Dickey had some young company on the pitching pedestal. Danny Barnes, called up from Buffalo earlier Tuesday, pitched a scoreless eighth inning in his debut on the big stage to maintain the one-run lead.

R.A. Dickey comes up huge in Blue Jays win over Astros

Padres now tied for most consecutive games with a home run in National League history

The streak lives on! The Padres have now homered in 25 straight games, tying the National League record set by the 1998 Atlanta Braves.

Game 101 Preview: Detroit Tigers at Boston Red Sox

Mike Pelfrey enters the lion's den of Fenway Park in search of his fourth win on the season. The Detroit Tigers offense will take on their second knuckleballer of the season on Tuesday night, as they go to work against right-hander Steven Wright. This is not a matchup that favors the Tigers. Their previous encounter with the knuckleball did not go well, and Wright is having an outstanding year. Back on July 10, the Tiger faced R.A. Dickey in Toronto, and were largely stymied. Dickey allowed just five hits and one run over seven innings. The fickleness of the knuckleball is legendary, but...
